What's the story?

LEAH REMINI: IT'S ALL RELATIVE is a reality series starring The King of Queens actress Leah Remini and her family as they restart their lives after their very public departure from the Church of Scientology. The Brooklyn native lives in Los Angeles with her husband, actor and restaurant manager Angelo Pagan, and their 9-year-old daughter, Sofia. Joining them is her mom, Vicki; her stepfather, George; her sister, Shannon; her brother-in-law, William; and Sofia's nanny, Trish. Adding to the fray is their friend and security guard, Lou, and Leah's personal assistant, Raffy. From organizing a party for their loyal friends or arguing over tattoos and body hair, the close-knit family members showcase their fun-loving and quirky characters.

Is it any good?

QUALITY

The series highlights the family's fun-loving, larger-than-life personalities as they talk, exchange barbs, and socialize with one another. But, as positive as they are, they openly discuss how they cope with being shunned by former friends and family members as a result of openly talking about their separation from the Church of Scientology, of which Remini was a member since childhood. 

This aside, most of the show is full of silly reality TV moments that might elicit a chuckle. There are lots of inside jokes, too, many of which leave you wondering what exactly is supposed to be funny. Nonetheless, the overall series offers up some warm-hearted entertainment. 

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about the Church of Scientology. What are its guiding principles? How does the media portray people who are members of this church? Why is it considered so controversial? 

  • Why do you think the cast agreed to appear on a reality series? Is it to highlight their former relationship with the church? Or for other reasons?

Untalented and boring family

I love Leah remini and always liked her shows. This show with her family is horrible. Her family is untalented and boring. They try to make Grand Ma looks like an idiot but in fact it's Leah' s daughter which is a huge boring baby. I can t understand how the producers could ever think someone would be interested watching Leah's boring family...
