One night, Leah, on an emergency basis, called my wife and said, “You guys need to be over here immediately.” I mean, I have a life. I have other things to do, I have children I need to take care of, you know, but that—that’s it, at the drop of a dime when Leah needs you, you go.
That’s how it was. So we show up and she’s upset and she’s not happy and Angelo is being told: “Get out of the house, go get our guests food,” which is weird because usually they would just have it delivered. Or somebody else would get it. And she sits my wife and I down and my wife already knew what was happening. It was just time to tell me. And what had happened is, Leah told me that Angelo had come clean to her that he had been having an affair with some other woman.
And she was deeply concerned how I felt about this issue. First of all, what do you care what I think? That’s your husband, deal with it. Like, handle it, figure it out. Why do you—what do you care what I think? But she wanted me to know and she wanted to know what I thought about it. And I was lost. Like, “What do you mean what do I think?” It’s like I’m telling you now. And I didn’t know what to say. I said, “That’s a horrible situation, you know. I’m sorry to hear this. What are you going to do?”
And I didn’t get it. It didn’t make sense to me. Why not talk to a friend and go about your day? Why do I need to be a part of this? And I started thinking and I’m like, wow, wait a minute: Leah stole Angelo from a girl named Raquel years before and they had a very small child at the time, Raquel and Angelo. And Leah went after this relationship with venom and force to try to destroy this marriage, which she did. And successfully destroyed this marriage and ruined this guy’s relationship with the wife that he’d had for many years. And what’s worse is they had a small baby.
That’s the kind of person Leah Remini is. Like, because she sees something she wants, she’ll go to any length, any length, to get it.
