The Emmy-winning TV personality revealed that her longtime bestie (and former Scientology member) Leah Remini once got her involved with the controversial religion, though she says she quit paying for the church’s expensive courses after learning more about their beliefs.

“They start out and they get you in good with some really important courses that can help your way of life,” Visage told comedian Matt Rogers and Saturday Night Live star Bowen Yang on Wednesday’s episode of the Las Culturistas podcast, admitting that the self-help vibe of the classes appealed to her as a single parent seeking to better the lives of her children.

“So, I go in to take these courses, and then I did the $50 ones and then the $100 ones. Mind you, I was working on the radio, so I didn’t have a lot of salary,” she said. “It came to, like, the $1,800 one. I said I didn’t have the money to do it, and they said, ‘Well, you can borrow a friend’s credit card,’ and I was like, ‘What kind of friends you think I got?'”

She claimed that the church then told her that celebrity Scientologist Jenna Elfman borrowed a friend’s credit card to pay her way through the courses, so Visage contemplated it. (Representatives for Elfman did not immediately respond to EW’s request for comment.)
