Bad blood? Not between these two former Scientologists. In a new interview, Leah Remini reveals that she has nothing but the utmost respect for Katie Holmes because she puts her daughter, Suri Cruise, first.

Not only did she reveal that she truly understands what Katie was going through and why she made the decisions she did, but she praised the former Dawson’s Creek actress for wising up and putting her daughter’s well being before anything else — including the love of Tom Cruise.
