Leah Remini on Scientology: 'No One Is Going to Tell Me How I Need to Think'

Leah Remini may have split from Scientology earlier this month, but she's not suddenly on her own.

"We stand united, my family and I, and I think that says a lot about who we are, and what we're about," the former King of Queens star, 43, told PEOPLE on Saturday at the 15th annual DesignCare event in Malibu.

Remini, who tangled with the church, added, "I believe that people should be able to question things. 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."
