On her WWHL appearance, Pinkett Smith told viewers that all their kids were involved in the game, and that Cruise was just trying to make the event fun for everyone -- which Remini said alerted her.
"I know Jada's in. I know Jada's in. She's been in Scientology a long time," Remini claimed to The Daily Beast. "I never saw Will [Smith] there, but I saw Jada at the Celebrity Centre. They opened up a Scientology school and have since closed it. But Jada, I had seen her at the Scientology Celebrity Centre all the time."
The school Remini was referring to was the New Village Leadership Academy in Calabasas, California, which shut down in 2013. Pinkett Smith and her husband, Will Smith, reportedly donated nearly $1 million of their own money into the school. The couple promised the school was secular, but it promoted the teaching method of "Study Technology" on its website, a controversial practice devised by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard.
"I had hoped that she had left [Scientology], but [Pinkett Smith's story] was the tell-tale sign that she was still in," Remini continued to claim. "That was untrue. Bulls**t. There were no kids there. I was like, 'OK, alright, you're gonna do that? More power to ya.'"
