    on Leah Remini



    Entertainer Stacy Francis was a personal friend of Leah Remini’s and got to see her nastiness up close and experience it herself.

    “She’s the one that disconnected from people all the time,” says Stacy. “She would change her number all the time… Every time she got upset with somebody, she wouldn’t talk to them anymore … So now she’s trying to flip it to make herself be the victim… This whole scenario about her and the Church of Scientology, it’s for her to make money.”

    An African-American, Stacy recalls numerous incidents in which the hot-tempered Remini would treat her like dirt, even going so far as to make offensive racial comments about her and her son. Says Stacy: “She would say really nasty things covertly to me and we would get into big fights … We were fighting, make up, fighting, make up. It was like I was in an abusive relationship… She disparages black people … she talks disparagingly about anybody. She called my son a ‘niglet’ which is like ‘nigger.’”

    Stacy adds: “For her to go around and say, ‘Oh! I’m so devastated. I’m the godmother of my friend’s children and she disconnected from me and she hurt me.’ That’s bull!”

    VIDEO TRANSCRIPT

    She disparages black people, she disparages—she talks disparagingly about anybody—she, she basically feels like she’s the queen of the world. Like, I’m the, she’s the star. She has everybody around her kissing her butt. And she just says disparaging things about people all the time.

    She called my son a “nigglet,” which is like, the junior, like, “nigger.” I had no idea that she was so evil this way. And the stories that I started to hear that she would say, that I lived in a really dirty home and … she just was talking really negatively and horribly about me to others. And everybody started coming to me and telling me these things and I was devastated. And I didn’t even know that this was how she really felt about me. I start… I could tell here and there she would say really nasty things like covertly to me and we would get into big fights and we were just… We would fight and make-up, fight and make-up. It was like I was in an abusive relationship.

    She was very antagonistic all the time. She was very, very intimidating. She could definitely rip into somebody bad like, she definitely had an attitude like a, hard-I saw her and her husband fight a couple of times and I was like, “wow.” And then you know, of course we all know that he cheated on her many times, you know. And it’s like you know, I could-I don’t want to say I can understand how you cheated on her ‘cause is not okay for anybody to cheat on his wife but she wasn’t very loving toward him, I never saw them be very loving. I always saw her fighting or screaming at him or snapping at him or being disparaging or you know, it was just very disgusting how she treated people.

    There were moments when that little devil would come out, you know. I remember, I went to her house and they were showing my audition as a preview for the promo-promotion for X-factor and her husband said that I was going to lose and they started laughing. “You’re not going to win, you’re not going to win the X-factor so just get ready for it.” And they were laughing. And it was really covert and kind of nasty and I was kind of like-and it kind of made me feel like somebody threw up on me spiritually and I was kind of like, “wow.” And in that count-I started to recount all the time they would say things like that. Little digs, “You’re not going to make it.” I would show her pictures of homes that I liked and she was like, “Oh, you’ll never own that home, you’ll never own that home. Stacy rent is coming up, you need to go get a waitressing job.” When she would know that I would be going on tour to go sing or you know. So, I started seeing it like after the fact, ‘cause sometimes you are so close to it and you are so in it that you really don’t see how horrible it is until you are completely apart from it. So I don’t miss it, I don’t miss it and I did not want to speak her name again, she was completely dead to me.

    I pleaded with her and she didn’t even answer me. She’s the one that disconnected from people all the time. She would change her number all the time. Every time. As soon as she got upset with somebody, she wouldn’t talk to them anymore. This was her way. This was her modus operandi. So now she’s trying to flip it to make herself be the victim.

    For her to go around and say, “Oh! I’m so devastated. The god… I’m the godmother of my friend’s children and she disconnected from me and she hurt me.” That’s bull!

    A friend of mine wanted to go to her restaurant to have breakfast. Now someone from out of town who is you know, a public guy, he doesn’t know me, he doesn’t know my relationship with Leah, he didn’t even know that Leah was the owner of the restaurant. He says, “I want to go eat at this particular restaurant” and I said, “Okay,” I said, “You know, I really don’t want to go there.” And he was like, “Come on! I want to have these pancakes, they’re so good.” So I go there and her sister asks me to leave. Her sister asks me to leave the restaurant. I’m like, what is this, Alabama 1958? You want the blacks to leave? Like, what are you talking about?” It was like, “You got to go.”

    I’m super blessed that she’s not in my life anymore. Because she’s shown us, she’s shown us who she is.

    She herself has been on video saying, “The Church has helped me. It’s giving me all the tools I have.” She said it herself. And now we are all sitting here, she doesn’t have the Church anymore and here she is, the evil that she is being unleashed because we’re not connected to her anymore. She’s-no one can tell me-I’ve known this girl for almost 15 years, you cannot tell me for one second that she in her quite time is not freaking out, devastated and completely lost without this Church.
