LEAH REMINI: Accused of Inciting Murder of Scientologist
Leah Remini and her A&E series Scientology and the Aftermath have been accused of inciting the murder of a Scientology member in Sydney, Australia.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald, 24-year-old Chih-Jen Yeh was stabbed in the neck with a large kitchen knife earlier this month outside of Scientology headquarters. A 16-year-old boy has been accused of the attack.
Afterwards, Scientology spokeswoman Karen Pouw sent a letter to the president of the A+E Networks Group. In the letter, Pouw claimed the teenager "spouted vicious religious hatred and propaganda, incited by A&E and the Leah Remini / Mike Rinder series" before stabbing the victim.
The letter added, "For years, A&E executives ignored our warnings that the series was inspiring bigotry and violence. You knew what you were doing. Your intent was to stir up hate and turn it into cash. Now somebody has been murdered. Your indifference and obsession with stirring hate underwrote this murder."
JILLIAN MICHAELS: Feuding With Al Roker and Andy Cohen
Jillian Michaels doesn't like the keto diet -- and that isn't sitting well with a bunch of celebs.
In a Women’s Health video, the 44-year-old trainer said, “I don’t understand. Like, why would anyone think this is a good idea?”
Al Roker and Andy Cohen quickly fired back. On Watch What Happens Live, Andy Cohen said, “Don’t feel bad, keto diet. A lot of people think Jillian Michaels is a bad idea.”
Roker hit Twitter to offer his opinion. The weatherman wrote, “So @JillianMichaels says #Keto is a bad idea. This from a woman who promoted on camera bullying, deprivation, manipulation and more weekly in the name of weight loss. Now those sound like bad ideas.”
In response, Jillian has invited her naysayers to debate the science of keto in person.
