Leah Remini started making TV appearances in the late 1980s, but it wasn’t until the 1990s when her role as Carrie Heffernan on the hugely successful and enduring comedy The King of Queens made her a household name. She also served as the host of the docuseries Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath and is one of the most well-known ex-Scientologists. Although Remini has been married for 20 years, not many people know who her husband is.

Pagan also appeared as a guest star on his wife’s sitcom, The King of Queens. Hector, a woman’s irate boyfriend who believes Doug is the same Doug Heffernan his girlfriend had a romantic weekend with, was played by him in the episode “Affair Trade.”

I genuinely believe I wоuld die fоr this individual.
In a previоus relatiоnship, Remini became the stepmоther tо Pagan’s three sоns, Nichоlas, Alex, and Angelо Jr.
