On last night’s episode of the Celebrity Apprentice, it was Nene vs Star take, oh who’s keeping count! The two ladies butted heads once again, well actually it was more of the Nene verbally attacking yet another person on national television, while Star just attempted to keep her distance cool.
The episode begins with Nene Leakes still reeling over the elimination of her new BFF La Toya Jackson. You know, the same person she verbally attacked a few weeks ago and the same person she helped send packing. Nene is upset at Star Jones as she feels Star is manipulative aka playing the game, something the Nene clearly doesn’t know how to do.
The task is to produce a live hair show using Biosilk and Chi products, with the winning project manager getting $40,000 for their charity of choice. Donald Trump wants to know who will be PM for the women’s team and Nene immediately volunteers. Okay, all is well. Not! Almost immediately, the Nene loses her cool as she reveals the only reason she’s PM is because Star told her to be. Evidently, she has to do whatever Star says, and even more interesting, asking someone to be a PM in the game of the Apprentice equals fighting words!

So much for that report claiming Nene Leakesand her latest nemesis Star Jones were trying to call a truce.
The verbal smackdown between the two Celebrity Apprentice stars continued this week as Nene visited The Ellen DeGeneres Show. When asked about her feelings on Star, the Nene called her a “disaster.”
“She is bossy, she is manipulative, conniving,” said Nene about herself Star. “And I’m not even being funny. I think that is real. I honestly think that is who she is.”
Ellen then asked if the NBC show accurately portrays the characters on the show. Nene replied, “I believe that you are. Big bossy Star. Laid back Nene. You are seeing all of that.”
Nene also stated she tried her best to get along with Star in the beginning. “I think she had preconceived notions of who she thought I was just from watching me on the ‘Housewives,’” said Nene. “I think she thought I was going to come in and take over. I tried to get to know her. Some people are difficult to get to know. She’s not the easiest person to get to know. She is a disaster.”
When asked if she was the only one who didn’t get along with Star, Nene told Ellen, “I don’t think anybody is getting along with Star. I don’t think she’s easy to get along with.” Seems like the Nene finally met her match.
As for Star’s response, she sent out the following tweets on Wednesday -
“I heard the “I hate Star Jones” fund got some more publicity today. LOL. Please send all checks to #AHA for #HeartHealth! #FocusOnAGoal”
“I REPEAT: If you LOVE me I’m always in your heart ; if you HATE me I’m always on your mind. Bless the miscellaneous…”
Meanwhile, we reported last week that Nene has been hanging out with Al Reynolds, Star’s ex-husband, and now a friend of Star’s tells Popeater how she really feels about that.
“Star thinks it’s pathetic that these two has-beens have teamed up together,” the friend tells Popeater. “Nene knows how much pain and hurt that man caused Star. For Nene to suddenly befriend him tells you exactly what sort of woman she really is.”
“My stomach hurts from laughing so much :o. U are beautiful and hilarious. Xoxo,” tweeted Kyle to Nene. “We laughed so much,” replied Nene.
Photos of the three housewives hanging tight below. We also have to wonder if there is trouble brewing for Kyle and Lisa Vanderpump’sfriendship as the two have barely tweeted to each other in recent months. And while Kyle has been photographed filming numerous scenes with BFFs Faye Resnickand Taylor in the past 2 weeks for the show’s second season, she has yet to be seen filming with Lisa. Perhaps they’re just not as close as they used to be.

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.”
