Leah Remini has been under fire since last week's announcement that she left the Church of Scientology, and after attacking the former King of Queens star on Twitter, former pal Kirstie Alley is now going after Remini's sister, Nicole Remini Wiskow.
In the wake of Alley and Remini's virtual squabble, Wiskow has been publicly defending her sister against critics, including X-Factor season one contestant Stacy Francis. Alley then tweeted at Francis about the interaction, saying, "You’re too good to talk to that b***h. Tune her..block her..don’t give her her 15 minutes of fame to spew her hate xxo."
Francis, who performed at Tom Cruise's 40th birthday, responded with, "Truth." She also added: "I love Leah Remini too much to say anything negative about her. Her sister shouldn't have disrespected me for no reason. I know I shouldn’t let the lies being written bother me bcuz that is what evil ppl want but I lose sleep and it hurts it really does." And despite being the one whom it is believed started the battle by retweeting Kirstie's twitter attacks on Leah from last week, Francis wrote, "It’s so crazy and I don’t want to speak out because it feeds into the nonsense. I mean really can I just sing! This is all sooooo stupid!"
In the Twitter melee, Alley took the opportunity to post another passive aggressive tweet on Saturday, writing, "Dear haters can you please jump faster and louder on my tweets ?!? You’re falling behind."
On Sunday night, Wicklow finally responded, "Understand that when PPL are feeling convicted, it will go 2 ways 1) they will retaliate or 2) change. Don;t give in 2 the ugly. Stick 2 the facts." Let's hope this stop getting so ugly before it gets better.
Taking the high ground, Leah Remini's Twitter has remained silent through these many raging battles around her -- maybe Alley and Francis should take notes.
