Who Wants to Help a Hater? Game Show Network Provides Haven to Leah Remini

Leah Remini needs aid and comfort.

2022 was a rough year for the washed-up actress and full-time bigot. With her toxic TV hate-fest Aftermath cancelled after inciting death threats and murder, Remini resumed spewing venom—this time on a podcast. After steadily leaking sponsorship (who wants to prop up a platform for bile?) the podcast aired its final episode last March. Remini then attempted to resuscitate the corpse by launching a hate podcast “2.0” on a lesser-known podcasting podium, only to see that, too, fall silent. Again, advertisers and investors learned what it was—and who she was—and abandoned it.

GSN question

Demonetized, disgraced and dismissed on every hand—even by the LAPD, which issued a rare news release categorically refuting Remini’s latest desperate and sick lie against her former church—Leah Remini needed a port in a storm, a safe haven, a platform to show the world she’s still got it.

Enter the Game Show Network (GSN), “the premiere destination for fun, family-friendly programming.” A perfect cover. As host of GSN’s “People Puzzler,” who would suspect Remini is a staunch supporter of convicted rapist Paul Haggis, even testifying as star witness on his behalf at his trial? Haggis is “the victim here,” she spun, propagandizing him as “a gentleman and humanitarian.” The jury saw through Remini’s fabrications, awarding $10 million to the victim of Haggis’ sexual abuse.

One is known by the company one keeps. We all know the crowd Ms. Remini hangs with—rapists, thugs, crooks—non-family-friendly folk, all.

Remini opens her new gig with a Botox smile:It’s People Puzzler! Welcome, everyone! It’s the crossword game show that combines pop culture with fun facts!”

Does GSN realize that Remini’s actual antireligious cross words—many of them unprintable in a “fun, family-friendly” context—ended in more than 600 threats and acts of violence, including a murder?

Do GSN executives and GSN’s complicit sponsors really want to promote a person whose own “pop culture fun facts” include a resumé with “character witness for a rapist” at the top of the list?

But… on with the show!

Remini asks an eager young contestant, Toniann, to describe herself in one ten-letter word. Toniann giggles, “My 10-letter word would have to be conscience because I’m a yoga instructor and I always remind my students to check in, be aware of how you are connected to everything, and just to be a good person!”

Remini stares at her for a moment, a simper frozen on her lips, before remarking, “Really sweet, really sweet. I should take a lesson from you.”

And perhaps if Remini won’t take the lesson, the Game Show Network and its sponsors should—possibly during the next commercial break while Remini catches up with another BFF, serial sex abuser and insider trader Les Moonves.

One is known by the company one keeps. We all know the crowd Ms. Remini hangs with—rapists, thugs, crooks—non-family-friendly folk, all. It’s no secret that she, like her cronies, is a vicious, lying, narcissistic, deranged, demented and dangerous bigot.

No question there.

So the real question is: why are the Game Show Network and its sponsors giving such a person a seat at their family table? Why—with all that has come out about this person—are they so eager to cozy up with her and have the stench of blood and bile muss up their starched shirts?

Possibly they’re prepping her for their next quiz show: Who Wants to Help a Hater?
