Sometimes you just need a really good best friend—Leah Remini has Jennifer Lopez. After Leah decided to leave Scientology she thought Jennifer would ditch her since her father is a Scientologist, but Remini says Lopez “didn’t waver in our friendship. She told me to keep the good things and move on with love,” Remini told People of friend Jennifer Lopez. “She doesn’t judge.”

Leah also dished on being fired from

…for not being a good fit. “I have a big mouth and I have a temper, so that’s not good for people. That’s not good for executives. I think it’s because I wasn’t my best self there, I don’t know how to conduct myself,” she added, “Because I could not subscribe to a certain way of doing things. The point is, most smart people in this business shut their mouth. … If I wanted to be in this kind of show I need to shut my mouth and do what my bosses tell me to do. I can’t do that. That [was] maybe not a good fit in that way.”

The Church of Scientology responded to Leah’s claims that they wanted her to invite Jennifer to Tom Cruise’s wedding in order to get Jennifer to join the church. “The Church does not single out anyone for its services, while its doors are open to all to make the able more able. The Church has not cared that Ms. Lopez was Ms. Remini’s friend. The only dealings the Church had with Ms. Remini with regards to Ms. Lopez was having to listen to her complaints about Ms. Lopez.”
