If there are still any doubters about Leah reading the forum, this should
erase that doubt!

Leah, thank you so much for taking the time to answer some questions
and updating us a little. We all appreciate it beyond words!!

And, we'll be watching for the new website and checking you out on Rachael Ray! Can't wait for both!!

This is from Leah, enjoy!:

Hey JP and my friends at the Leah Remini Guard (You guys are so sweet!),

I was just looking around the web site and I am so touched! I know I say that all the time, but I mean it!

Okay, let me answer some questions here:
The main question I am being asked is what I am doing next - I really don’t know. I am so blessed in that The King of Queen’s has afforded me some breathing room. I worked on the show for 9 years! And honestly, I miss it! I can’t just go and take a completely different role and just leave Carrie behind!!! I feel like I am still “mourning”. I did enjoy doing “In The Motherhood” because it wasn’t so far from Carrie. I don’t know – professionally - I just have no idea what to do next. Maybe a talk show, maybe an hour show, dramatic role… I don’t know… I do know this, I MISS THE KING OF QUEENS!!!! What do you guys think? And don’t say Dancing with the Stars because I’m not down with all that touching…. and on the movie front- you guys, that’s a lot of work. I am used to my easy sit-com job, not actually working all day and night!

Okay- A few more questions- I can not speak Italian, but I just got those Rosetta Stone tapes to learn Italian because I always loved the language. My grandma always cursed at my grandpa in Italian and I would think, “Wow, that’s so much better in Italian!”.

Thanks for all of your Anniversary wishes, Birthday, Mother’s Day and wishing Sofia a Happy Birthday! Can you believe she is going to be four in two months!!!

“C Mon Aussie”- honey did you ever get the picture? Let me know.

BiggestLeahFan- you are such a sweetie pie face! Thank you for all that you do and say……

Okay- I can’t find this now, but there was a woman who was asking what dress I wore to TC’s wedding because she wants it for her wedding, I don’t know if it is too late, but can you guys try and get her the info? It was a designer called “Elie Saab”. By the way, I didn’t buy that dress, it was borrowed and it was .

On the King of Queens Goodbye Song- I am not very bright when it comes to computers, I clicked on it and I can’t get it to play! But, how sweet that you guys would make a song!!!! So touched by that! I did get the CD that J.P. sent for Christmas with all the songs!

I want to thank “Pamalashells” for your post and sharing your story and I am elated to hear that you are cancer free. Blessings to you, David and your family and I wish you nothing but the best that life has to offer. And yes, I am enjoying my little Sofia - she is the world to me.

Ok~ Rachel Ray is going on air on the 24th of APRIL and Angelo, Sofia and I just did a cute little photo shoot for Us Weekly, that will be out on stands on April 23, 2008.

Also, I am working on my new web site with new pictures, new comments, Blog and all…. would love to hear what you guys think of it as soon as it is up!

Okay- I am off to try and get Sofia to brush her teeth this morning.

Love and kisses to you all!

Leah


Other answers Leah gave in the FAQ section of her Web site:

Q. Do you still get a chance to visit the Leah Remini Guard forum from time to time?
A. I do, being that there are so many web sites that claim they are mine which are NOT (including a MY Space page) it is refreshing to go the LRG and know that you guys have accurate information and are very sweet to me!

Q. A Sofia/motherhood question: What's your favorite part of being a mom and what characteristics does Sofia have that reminds you of yourself?
A. The best part about being a mom is the unconditional love you get from your child. Life just seems better when you wake up to “I love you mommy, want to know how much”? followed by outstretched arms! Acting, obsessing about the way I look and general BS just doesn’t have any importance when you have been blessed with an amazing healthy child. Sofia wants what she wants when she wants it…. She is headstrong and inquisitive… I guess she gets that from me!

Q. We may know the answer to this one, but: You've worked on a few sitcoms. Which was your favorite to work on?
A. My favorite has to be The King of Queens. I have had so many failed shows behind me and this show was a hit because people understood it and could relate. When people come up to me and say, “Your show got me through rough times because you guys made me laugh”, it really shows me how far laughter can go…. I also had so many monumental events happen during this show. It was my first real success in TV as far as a series goes, I got married, I had my first baby (as well as a lot of our crew) Kevin had his first baby, I bought my first house and in general just a lot of laughing and fun times through the nine years with Kevin, the cast and crew.

Q. If you could choose, which would you like to do next?: Another sitcom, tv reality show, movie, or talk show.
For the record, I think we would all love to see you on Dancing With The Stars. :-)
A. That’s very cute! I would love to do Dancing with the Stars- I definitely would get a work out! But, I couldn’t be that close to someone physically every day…. They are very touchy feely on that show right?

I would only do another sitcom if it was a character like Carrie Heffernan…. It would really have to be something special. I feel a sense of loyalty towards The King of Queens and wouldn’t want to move too far from that. I don’t know yet - my next move has not been decided….

Q. Would you like to do dramatic roles in the future?
A. I would. Again, it would have to be the right thing for me to get up that early and leave my daughter…. Dramatic roles for some reason usually have 5am calls.

Q. Would you consider working with Kevin James again in the future?
A. In a New York second!!!!!!! I am pitching to him that I play a cameo in his next movie…. He might make me audition (don’t know) ☺

Q. What is in your cd player/iPod these days? Any current favorite artists?
A. I really like Freestyle- the Cover Girls, Seduction, Shannon, (this is from my Brooklyn days)…. I have a variety in my IPOD. I have Old School rap, Latin- Frankie Ruiz. Marc Anthony, Celia Cruz…. I loved songs like Pour Some Sugar on Me by Def Leopard so I have a lot of that too, some R & B; all the way through to Barry Manilow and the Cowboy Junkies…I’m all over the place with music. I love music.

Q. What or who has given you inspiration in your career?
A. Lucille Ball, Carole Burnett……they made me laugh out loud as a child. I would often do skits from their shows because I wanted to create that effect on others that they had created in me as child.
What gave me inspiration? I wanted to live a better life and wanted more for my mom…. I wanted to do it with something I loved and that is what gave me the motivation to pursue my career. My mom and step dad growing up were very supportive of what I wanted to do and never made me think it was unattainable. I never thought I couldn’t do it!

Q. What are some of your hobbies?
A. I don’t have hobbies; I have a three year old... So, basically its being a princess with my daughter and playing dress up, letting her destroy my makeup and put makeup on me, putting on the outfits she makes me wear, coloring, playdoh and the Disney Channel.

Q. How often are you at Vivian's and are there any plans to expand in the restaurant business?
A. I am not there often. Angelo has banned me from Vivs… apparently; I am too bossy when I am there.
No plans to expand Vivian’s it because it being so small is part of its charm, but in general, perhaps, that’s a question for Angelo and my mom…

Q. What are your favorite places to shop?
A. I can go from Target to Neiman Marcus.

Q. Who are your favorite entertainers? Actors, singers, etc...
A. Meryl Streep, Brando, Robert Duvall, De Niro, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Christopher Guest, William H. Macey, Emma Thompson, Katherine O’Hara, Benicio Del Torro, Gary Oldman, Francis McDormand, Kevin Spacey, Joaquin Phoenix, Viggo Mortensen, Edward Norton, Ashley Judd, ….. I like a lot of things about a lot of actors, but it is usually moments in their work that catch me…..

Q. Do you spin or have some other form of favorite exercise?
A. I am not a fan of any exercise. I do it because I have to! But if I had to choose, yeah- spinning….I don’t like to run on the treadmill, but I have to do it. Let me say this, I like the results of working out not the actual working out part. I have a trainer, Gunnar Petersen, who puts up with me three times a week. I think he might be trying to quit though. I complain most of the hour he is with me!

Q. Are there any plans for In The Motherhood to be a weekly TV series?
A. Not that I know of…. I am doing two more episodes and then handing the torch over to Jenny and Chelsea…

Q. Have you ever thought about doing stand-up?
A. I thought about it. I would consider it if I had great writers!

Q. Any thoughts on having another child?
A. I would consider adoption. I do feel Sofia would like a brother or a sister.

Q. Do you keep in touch with any of the KoQ cast?
A. I text or talk to Kevin all the time. I think he feels I might be stalking him.
I miss the whole cast….

Q. Any plans to visit NY again soon?
A. I love going to NY… I love the people, the food and the energy. Now that Sofia is getting older, we are planning a trip there again.

Q. What's your favorite color?
A. White, Cream & Beige.

Q. Are you able to go to normal places, i.e.: grocery store, restaurant, etc... without being asked for autographs?
A. Because our show was so “normal” people do feel like they know me. I have no issue with people coming up to me and asking for an autograph. It makes me feel good to see someone so excited just to meet me. In my head, I am just Leah, so when people are staring at me, I assume they want to fight or I have something unbuttoned – it’s never “Oh, they must know me from TV”, that is something my family and friends have to remind me of.

Q. Do you have any favorite KoQ episodes?
A. There are a few….. But off the top of my head, I loved the pilot. When I watch that show, I laugh out loud because we only knew each other a few days and we were so uncomfortable touching each other! It has so many memories in it. There was a show where Doug takes Carrie to the mountains thinking he had taken her there before only to find out it was another woman he took, there was another show, where we played the Honey Mooners…. So many…. I can’t pick just one.

Q. What's your ringtone?
A. I don’t have one. I have my phone on vibrate. I hate apologizing for my phone ringing. So, I just turned it off.

Q. Do you know the exact time you were born?
A. June 15, 1970 1:25pm (EST)

Wow jp, I guess you're finally "at liberty" and thank you for posting!

It's obvious that Leah really does read the forum, and it's incredibly cool that she mentions people by name, and is aware of their situations.

It's apparent she's a warm, generous down-to-earth and genuine person just as we knew she was.

Of all the possible jobs she mentioned, I think she's best suited for her own talk show. She's a natural!

I'll be looking for that issue of US on newstands soon.

Thank you!!!!

Default We are some lucky fans!

We must be lucky fans to love a star who loves us right back. Not a lot of fans get to have someone who reads and responds to their website. She is such a sweet person. I can hear her voice and personality come through as I'm reading her comments. Hopefully she'll log on and talk with us on a regular basis. How cool would that be! Thanks Leah and LeahReminiGuard for letting me be a lucky fan. Leah, you are a wonderful inspiration and you've taught me many things. Enjoying life and family is just the beginning! I love the way you put family and friends first, and you always know how to make everyone laugh. What a great gift!

Thank you for posting Leah's answers, I do hope she will do more.

I think "Dancing with the Stars" would be great. I know the touching maybe makes her squeamish, but it would be nice if she could do it with Angelo. They dance so well together.

Leah, Sofia looks soooo beautiful, and can't wait to see the photo shoot.

Hey, after you learn Italian, learn Spanish too.

Whatever happens to you, I hope it involves Angelo, they do work well together, and he's funny too.

I am so sorry to hear about this "gotluv," you do have my condolences.
