    But despite the many people who have come forward, Leah still wonders why Katie Holmes and Nicole Kidman have yet to speak out. She battled with this question in a new interview with LaPalme Magazine.

    "I keep wondering – why haven’t Katie Holmes or Nicole Kidman spoken out? I assume they were forced to sign prohibitive documents."

    She singled out Katie and Nicole, because they were both married to Tom Cruise, a prominent member of the Church of Scientology.

    Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise were married from 2006-2012. Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise were married from 1990-2001.

    "Trust me, Katie‘s not allowed to have a meal with me, and we used to be close friends. She could lose custody of Suri. It’s quite sick, really."

    Leah went on to suggest the harsh repercussions that could take place if someone were to speak out negatively against Scientology.

    "Members of the church go to my mother’s restaurant, confront my little sister and my step-kids in San Francisco, trying to intimidate us."

    Leah also claimed people she works with on the series "are harassed constantly, especially me. These abusive scare tactics are what they call a religion."
