Celebrity Apprentice

While much has been reported about the drama between Star Jones and Lisa Rinna, it seems the feud is much much uglier than we all thought… as in lawyers are now involved.

Yes, E! news is now reporting that Star is accusing her Celebrity Apprentice costar of harassment since the show wrapped. According to E!, Star claims to have been targeted by Lisa’s “foul” tweets and emails attacks, to the point that she complied all the messages together and got some “bigwig” lawyers involved.

To give you the back story on this, Lisa has made some not so nice tweets about Star, first back in October and then again last week, during which she tweeted photos of herself and various monster masks with captions such as “Great picture of me and Star Jones!!!!” And then came Sunday’s episode during which Lisa was fired following a boardroom showdown with Star and Dionne Warwick. Following her elimination, Lisa felt she was thrown under the bus by Star and some of her other teammates.

“Lisa was so furious she was kicked off so early and blamed it all on Star,” an insider tells E!. “Lisa went home and started sending nasty emails. Star just collected it all and handed them over. It’s in legal’s hands now and they’ve warned Lisa to stop.”

“Star is taking this very seriously,” adds another source. To back up her claims, Star gathered all of the tweets and emails dating back months, turning them in to NBC’s legal department, complaining she was being “harassed.” Star alleged that such attacks were “evidence of [Rinna's] instability,” and also got lawyers from The Trump Organization and from Mark Burnett Productions involved in the fight.

“Star declined to make the cause of concern public as to not take away from her purpose of doing the show, which is charity,” states a rep for Star while a “source” tells E! “Star hasn’t taken the behind the scenes fight public because she thinks it would ruin Lisa.” How noble of Star.

NBC has declined to comment on the story as well as Lisa, who has since removed the tweets.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THIS STORY? WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ON? DID LISA DESERVE TO GO HOME ON THE LAST EPISODE OF CA?

The fourth season of Celebrity Apprentice premiered last week, bringing us a whole lot of crazy!

The good news is that this season has only just began, in addition to the fact that the more boring sane contestants, coughs, David Cassidy, will be the first ones eliminated.

On tonight’s new episode titled “Child’s Play,” the “celebrities hope to have the write stuff when they pen an original children’s book, then perform the tale for youngsters. The plot thickens when one project manager fails to unite a team and the other group tries to tame a troublemaking teammate.”

The episode airs on NBC at 9/8c.

Meanwhile, bad news for Richard Hatch, the first winner of Survivor, as he was ordered back behind bars on Friday. The reason? For violating his probation.

If you recall, Richard had previously served more than three years in prison for tax evasion, and was required to re-file his taxes upon his 2009 release, as well as pay what he owed from 2000 and 2001. He apparently failed to do so.

Richard will serve a nine-month sentence. The judge also ordered him to serve 26 months supervised release, during which time 25 percent of his gross income would be garnished and paid to the Internal Revenue Service. Richard now owes an estimated $2 million to the IRS and is set to report to prison on Monday.

Outside the court, Richard revealed he was disappointed and planned to appeal. NBC has stated the sentence will not affect the show in any way.

And finally, it seems Nene Leakes is not the only “celebrity” to clash with Star Jones on the show as Lisa Rinna also took to her twitter page this week to diss Star. Lisa posted a photo of a grey-ish monster on Wednesday and captioned it – “Star Jones without her wig on!” Lisa then posted another pic of a different monster, captioning it “Great shot of me and Star Jones.”

It seems Lisa has since deleted the tweets but thanks to screen shots by Zap2It, photos of the postings are below.

It seems Nene Leakes has feelings too. Who knew?

Following a public backlash for the second year in a row due to her behavior both on and off the Real Housewives of Atlanta, Nene is now admitting the negative press can be “hurtful” at times.

During a recent interview with Zap2It, Nene was asked how she feels about all the bad press surrounding her. “Some of the press is hurtful, because I’m a human like anybody else,” said the Nene. “So, some of it is hurtful. And some of it, when I know it’s a flat out lie, I’m like whatever, it doesn’t really matter. But, some of the press is hurtful and I do read some of it, sometimes.”

Nene goes on to add that she has learned a lot about herself since doing the show. What has she learned you ask? Well, mostly that other people are very judgmental and that she’s a really strong woman.

“Being on the show, I’ve learned that people are very judgmental, very, very judgmental,” she says. “And I’ve learned also that I have very thick skin. I’ve learned that I’m a really strong woman. I have really gone through some things and really come out on top. So, I am a strong woman. At the end of the day, when I go home I sleep very well.” Poor Nene, always the victim.

In other Nene news, the NYDailyNews is reporting that Nene might be getting the boot from the Real Housewives of Atlanta. The reason? Apparently, both Bravo and Andy Cohen have had it up to here with her “extra-grande ego.”

An insider reveals that Andy’s relationship with the Nene has become strained due to her “disrespectful” and “arrogant behavior.” Another issue is Nene’s overly aggressive behavior toward costar Kim Zolciak, as Kim had to file a police report two years ago after she alleged Nene choked her during an argument.

“She’s alienated all of the women other than Cynthia [Bailey],” the source adds. “So, as of now, the plan is to “phase” Leakes out within the first two to three episodes of season four, which begins in October.”

Celebrity Apprentice returns tonight for its fourth season with what is being called the most dramatic cast to date.

While the show boasts 16 “celebrities” this season, Mr. Donald Trump can thank one particular castmember in general who seems to be bringing most of the drama based on the show’s previews.

Bravo housewife Nene Leakes, known for running her mouth speaking her mind on the Real Housewives of Atlanta, is taking her drama schtick to the NBC network, with Star Jones playing the role of Kim Zolciak.

Nene has spent the past couple of weeks slamming Star in the press, you know, calling her “special” and stating she “wouldn’t spit on Star if she was on fire.” Star on the other hand has appeared to take the high road in the feud, stating in a recent interview that she did not want to contribute to the stereotype of the “bombastic black woman.”

Nene however sees things differently. “I’m not surprised that Star used the ‘black women need to get along. Oh, she’s just being a black woman being mad or yelling or whatever,’” Nene tells Zap2It in a recent interview. “She has no fault in this. So, let’s just say that. You can not argue by yourself.” Nene goes on to refer to Star as “phony,” adding, “I’m like this, if you are a b***h, own it. Be a b***h 24 hours, own that. Be that.”

So what is Nene’s strategy on Celebrity Apprentice you ask? “Going into ‘Celebrity Apprentice,’ I didn’t have any strategies,” admits Nene. “I was a little scared going there. I saw Donald and I thought that he was scary. You know, mean-mugging you and not really smiling. So, I was really scared of that. I just went in, thinking to myself that I’m just here to fight for my charity and I don’t want to be voted off first. That’s all I thought.”

Moving on to tonight’s season premiere — the “sixteen celebrities engage in business-themed battles when Donald Trump’s competition series begins its 11th season. In the opener, the stars must manage a New York City pizzeria.” The celebrities include La Toya Jackson, Lisa Rinna, Richard Hatch, Marlee Matlin, Dionne Warwick, Gary Busey, David Cassidy, Lil Jon, Meat Loaf and Mark McGrath.

A preview clip is below -

In case you’re not aware by now, Nene Leakes and Star Jones will both be appearing on the upcoming season of the Celebrity Apprentice, and there is no love lost between the two.

In fact, Nene, star of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, has slammed Star in multiple interviews, recently stating she “wouldn’t spit on Star if she was on fire.” While Donald Trump revealed during an appearance on the Jimmy Fallon Show that things turned physical between two castmates on the show, referencing Nene and Star.

Fast forward to today and a new report by Popeater reveals things got so bad that Star has had to hire security to keep Nene away from her.

“NeNe is coming unhinged,” a source close to Star tells Popeater adding that she even made LaToya Jackson cry and got in the face of singing legend Dionne Warwick.

The source adds that the issue is with Nene, who has also been shown getting into multiple fights with her RHOA castmates. “Clearly, she can’t get along with women, especially other black women. She is losing it.”

And while Nene continues to trash Star in the press, the source adds that Star is trying to rise above the negativity. Star however still feels that Nene could be a physical threat to her, which has led to her hiring her own private security guards.

“Star is a real celebrity, not some cheap reality star who is enjoying 15 minute of fame,” the friend says. “She’s a lawyer and a lady. NeNe can say what she wants about Star, but she doesn’t care now that she knows she’s safe.”

As for the Donald, he is reportedly excited at what is being called the “most dramatic season of ‘The Apprentice’ ever.” The source adds, “Donald Trump loved it. He’s no fool. He knows that this sort of drama is TV gold.”

Meanwhile, part 1 of the RHOA reunion airs this Sunday on Bravo, and below is a preview clip.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THIS STORY? DO YOU THINK NENE IS LOSING IT?

With the third season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta winding down, Nene Leakes continues to run her mouth speak her mind.

Appearing on the Wendy Williams Show on Tuesday, Nene discussed her “divorce,” her plans to “quit” the RHOA, while also slamming once again her Celebrity Apprentice costar Star Jones.

When it comes to her divorce with Gregg Leakes, Nene told Wendy: “The divorce is pending. I did file for divorce. My happiness is everything.” Perhaps the divorce is really happening this time as Nene also revealed Gregg “actually just moved out.”

Nene was also asked about wanting to leave the RHOA after the current season, during which Wendy brought up Kim Zolciak’s comments stating Nene can’t leave the Bravo hit show because they’re all under contract. NeNe responded, “Contracts can be broken.”

And finally, when it comes to her upcoming appearance on NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice, NeNe denied rumors that stated she was acting like a diva on the set. “Everybody has to be there at a certain time so that’s not possible,” Nene quipped.

When asked about her relationship with fellow Apprentice star Star Jones, Nene did not mince her words! “I’m not feeling Star Jones. I gave her a chance when she got there, but Star is a trip. She’s very special. I wouldn’t spit on Star if she was on fire,” said Nene.

Star’s response? A twitter follower asked her what she thinks of NeNe, Star replied, “I don’t.” Star also made the following tweets within the past 24 hours -

“Lesson learned long ago: “Never get into a PIG fight…because 3 things happen: You get tired, you get dirty and only the pig has fun!”

“Ignorance in pretty clothes and high heeled shoes is still ignorance…“There is nothing more frightful than ignorance in action.””

Below is an NBC promo of Nene on Celebrity Apprentice, which premieres March 6. Part 1 of the RHOA reunion airs this Sunday on Bravo.

NBC has now officially unveiled the cast of Celebrity Apprentice 4, though the cast information had been leaked for months.

Based on the cast list, it is certain that this season will likely be the most dramatic yet as Donald Trump even revealed that two of the cast members got into a fist fight during filming, but more on that later.

The cast members this season include Atlanta housewife Nene Leakes, LaToya Jackson, Gary Busey, Star Jones, Lisa Rinna, Marlee Matlin, Dionne Warwick, David Cassidy, John Rich, former “Survivor” champ Richard Hatch, Meat Loaf, Mark McGrath, retired baseball badboy Jose Canseco, rapper Lil Jon, model Niki Taylor and reigning Playboy Playmate of the Year Hope Dworaczyk.

“The next season of ‘The Celebrity Apprentice’ will be the most exciting yet,” said the Donald. “We are thrilled to bring back the celebrity format with 16 new and unbelievably talented celebrities who will help me make ‘The Celebrity Apprentice’ one of the hottest shows on television this spring. This will be season 11 — Amazing!”

And during his recent appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon this week, Trump revealed that Nene Leakes had “huge problems” and “fistfights” with Star Jones! “I’ve never seen anything like it on television,” said Trump. “I wouldn’t wanna fight NeNe Leakes,” added Jimmy.

Nene, star of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, also admitted she is no fan of Star’s during her Friday interview with Hoda Kotb on the fourth hour of the Today Show.

“The whole sneaky, back stabbing, forming alliances, I just don’t like…she may have a new body, but she doesn’t have a new brain. You still think the same even though you lose weight so I don’t know,” said Nene of Star.

The new season of Celebrity Apprentice premieres March 6 on NBC.

Just days after it was reported that Nene Leakes had joined the new cast of Celebrity Apprentice, a new report is now revealing Nene’s diva behavior on the set of the show.

According to TMZ, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star has already earned a reputation for being the “difficult one” just nine days into filming.

The tipping point came this weekend after an incident over her makeup. Sources tell TMZ that Nene threw a temper tantrum because she hated the way her makeup was done for the show’s opening interviews. She then had the makeup artists start her makeup over again, except she still wasn’t satisfied.

Following two makeovers, Nene decided to take matters into her own hands, doing her makeup by herself.

In other news, the always outspoken NYC Housewife Bethenny Frankel is back at it yet again. Bethenny, who is mostly admired by her fans for her brutal honesty, took a jab at the Atlanta Housewives during her recent appearance on the Rachel Ray Show.

While attempting to make fun of her spotlight-loving dog Cookie, Bethenny said the following: “I think she has an agent. She literally hams it up for the cameras,” Bethenny said of her dog. “She’s like … one of the housewives of Atlanta. Every time the cameras are on she’s, like, doing something.”

Some are now saying Bethenny was comparing the Atlanta ladies to dogs, but knowing Bethenny, she more than likely didn’t mean it in that manner.
