Is Leah Remini planning to open up about her experiences in the Church of Scientology in a tell-all book?

It seems pretty likely. The actress, who recently revealed that she had parted ways with Scientology, told Us Weekly that she has a memoir in the works. "It will include my experiences, everything that's taboo to talk about," Remini, 43, said Saturday at the 15th annual DesignCare event in Malibu.

She alsorecently said, "I believe that people should be able to question things. I believe that people should value family, and value friendships, and hold those things sacrosanct. That for me, that's what I'm about. It wouldn't matter what it was, simply because no one is going to tell me how I need to think, no one is going to tell me who I can, and cannot, talk to."

Earlier this summer, there were reports that Remini was no longer a Scientology member. Shortly afterward, she released the following statement: "I wish to share my sincere and heartfelt appreciation for the overwhelming positive response I have received from the media, my colleagues, and from fans around the world. I am truly grateful and thankful for all your support."
