"It's people and a lifestyle you've known all your life," Remini said on Oprah: Where Are They Now in 2014. "It formed who I am, good and bad. It formed the way I think, good and bad, and there's a lot of pain connected to it. There's a lot of healing."

"In the church, you're taught that everybody is lost," Remini said in a 2014 interview. "They say they're loving, caring, nonjudgmental people, but secretly, they were judging the world for not believing what they believed. To me, that is not a spiritual person. That's a judgmental person, and that is the person that I was. I was a hypocrite, and the worst thing you can be in this world is a hypocrite."
