LOS ANGELES, Aug. 5 (UPI) -- U.S. television actress Leah Remini has confirmed she intends to write a memoir about her life as a longtime member of the Church of Scientology.

The former "King of Queens" star and "The Talk" co-host announced last month she had left the organization.

"I believe that people should be able to question things," Remini told People.com in July, shortly after departing the church. "I believe that people should value family, and value friendships, and hold those things sacrosanct. That, for me, that's what I'm about. It wouldn't matter what it was, simply because no one is going to tell me how I need to think; no one is going to tell me who I can, and cannot, talk to."

She told UsMagazine.com she would like to pen a book that includes "my experiences, everything that's taboo to talk about."

The Hollywood Reporter said Remini is being courted by several publishers, but has not signed a deal yet. The entertainment industry trade newspaper also said the book could be a blockbuster since it would life the veil on a faith outsiders know little about.

Tom Cruise, John Travolta and Kirstie Alley are among some of the church's most famous members.
