Leah Remini playfully smacks Ellen DeGeneres on-air after accusing the host of ‘acting really interested’ in her story

Leah Remini accused Ellen DeGeneres of “acting interested” in her story on her daytime talk show.
“I’m always interested,” the host responded, leading Remini to say: “You’re not, Ellen!”
The actress proceeded to playfully smack DeGeneres before they laughed the moment off.

Leah Remini gave Ellen DeGeneres a friendly smack on Tuesday’s episode of NBC’s “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” after the actress accused the daytime talk show host of faking interest in her story.

During her appearance on the show, Remini, 51, spoke about her and her husband Angelo Pagan’s attempts to scare their 17-year-old daughter, Sofia. Halfway through a detailed account of her story, the “King of Queens” actress glanced once over each of her shoulders.

“No, ’cause you’re acting really interested,” Remini said, turning back to the 63-year-old host and pointing a finger at her, adding, “I don’t know if you’re doing that thing where you’re into my story.”

DeGeneres, seemingly startled by the shift in the conversation’s direction, responded, “I’m always interested.”

The actress then yelled, “You’re not, Ellen! Stop!”

Remini proceeded to get out of her seat, lean over to the host, and hit her arm several times.

“Ow! It’s my last season. Don’t hurt me,” DeGeneres told her guest as she pulled her arm away. – Source
