Leah Remini Promises Honesty and Fun on Her TLC Reality Show

Why is Leah Remini doing a reality show? Because she’s not so different from you – and yes, because she’s funny.

“People tell us, ‘You guys are funny.’ Other people find us entertaining, so we thought, ‘Let’s do it,’ ” the former King of Queens actress tells PEOPLE of her plans to star with her family in an as-yet-untitled TLC show this summer.

“My family is not so different from the rest of America,” she adds. “I think people love to see that, oh, just because she’s on television and in Hollywood, I can still relate to her.”
