Star Jones


You either love her or you hate her as no one I know has ever had a neutral opinion about NeNe Leakes.

In a recent radio interview with the Russ Parr Morning Show, NeNe, who stars on the Celebrity Apprentice, is not happy about the insinuations in the line of questioning inferring she bullies fellow cast mates. Of course, the always diplomatic and never defensive NeNe attempted to set the record straight.

She tells the radio show, “I don’t know what you been watching because nobody has said that I seem like I’m the bully on ‘Celebrity Apprentice.’ I know I’m not a bully and everybody has their opinions and that’s fine with me. You’re not on the show, I am. So you don’t know what goes on.” Well, I guess that’s it then, NeNe is not a bully. Not one to end it there, NeNe goes on to share what it is about her sparkling personality that could potentially lead to that false public opinion. She adds, “I’m not bullying anybody. I stand up for what I believe in, and I’m very honest, and I always tell the truth. I’m not a liar, I’m not manipulative, and I don’t stab you in your back, because I will stab you in your chest.” I’m just concerned that regardless, stabbing is involved.

NeNe insists that it is her star quality and not her penchant for drama that landed her on Celebrity Apprentice. “I’m on the show because I am very popular and Mr. Donald Trump handpicked me himself,” she insisted. NeNe did admit to the radio hosts that Apprentice wasn’t her cup of tea and revealed that she was soon hoping to get her own show. If that happens, I know I’ll be watching. Seriously.

When asked if her slightly (?) negative portrayal was the fault of editing (isn’t that what all reality stars say is to blame for less than stellar reputations?), NeNe is not happy. She retorts, “You need to say that to your listeners and also you haven’t seen Star be manipulative, evil and conniving? She was calling me uneducated. She likes to pull the ‘I’m more educated than anyone’ card all of the time. Just because you went to school for ten years doesn’t mean you are smarter than me because we are on the same show getting the same check. I don’t like people who like to put out bad information. That’s not cool to the listeners. I have a very big heart. I’m a very good person and there’s nobody you can talk to that has ever been around me that would tell you anything other than that. That is who I am and what you see on TV is TV.” It’s very commendable to own her behavior, I have to say, but I am guessing that Gregg or Kim Zolciak may think otherwise as to how fabulous she says she is.

Recently fired “celebrity” castmate Hope Dworaczyk also dished about NeNe’s behavior, as well as that of NeNe’s Apprentice nemesis Star Jones. In the past, Hope has called NeNe “unstable” but opened up to E! Online about both co-stars. “Star was bossy and you couldn’t tell her any different, but NeNe was a bitch, too…I love them both and I hate them both, because they were so hard to work with, yet, when we were in our down time, they were fun and enlightening and dancing on the floor.” Too bad that Hope won’t be dancing on the floor of Trump Towers with NeNe any longer.

What drama can NeNe stir up innocently come across on tonight’s episode? Watch the following preview of the special three-hour episode below!

TELL US – DO YOU THINK NENE IS A BULLY?


After feeling the wrath of Nene Leakes on the most recent episode of the Celebrity Apprentice, Star Jones is now speaking out against her castmate.

During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today, Star struck back against the Nene. “What were you thinking when Nene was going off like that?” Ellen asked Star. “I was thinking my grandmother is going to watch this,” Star replied.

“I was thinking I need to keep calm because, not for nothing, but when you’re confronted in the wild with an un-caged animal you’re supposed to retreat. You’re not supposed to attack,” added Star, 49, referencing why she decided to walk away from Nene during the verbal attack.

But it didn’t end there. “No,” replied Ellen, “with a bear you’re supposed to appear bigger. You’re supposed to get larger.”

“If you can tell me how to get bigger than that, I got money for you,” responded Star. Ellen then wanted to know if there was a possibility of a reconciliation anywhere in the future for the two reality stars: “How do you all get along now?” asked Ellen.

“Well, the lawyer in me would say, ‘We were not friends before, we were clearly not friends during, we are not friends after,’” said Star, adding, “I don’t know that girl and I don’t hang with people like that.” Ouch!

As for the Nene, she seems proud of the way she behaved on the show as she tweeted yesterday, “I always tell the truth because I don’t c the point n lying & it worked 4 me on last nite episode! I had taken all I could take. Bye Hope.”

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON STAR’S COMPARISON OF THE NENE TO AN UNCAGED ANIMAL?

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!

Maybe future presidential candidate Donald Trump has spent the past few weeks sharing his opinions on both his politics as well as President Obama, but the question today is has the Donald gone too far?

Gone too far as in is he now hurting NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice? Oddly enough, many critics feel Donald’s recent publicity tour is actually a stunt to increase ratings for his show. But that now seems to be backfiring as not only are some viewers threatening to boycott the show due to Trump’s political statements, but Groupon announced Thursday that it had decided to pull all future ads from the Celebrity Apprentice website at the urging of its customers.

After an online petition was launched last week urging a boycott of companies that advertised with the show, Groupon, which doesn’t advertise on the TV show but rather on the NBC.com website, stated that they would not place ads on the show’s website in the future so as to “[avoid] intentionally upsetting a segment of our customers.”

“Enough consumers have contacted us to warrant ensuring that we don’t place ads on the Apprentice homepage in the future. It’s the same reason we don’t run deals on guns or abortion… this isn’t a political statement, it’s avoiding intentionally upsetting a segment of our customers,” said Groupon via a statement on their website.

And according to NewsOne, a news service for the African American community, other advertisers are starting to pressure NBC to either control Trump or risk losing their sponsorship on the Celebrity Apprentice.

Meanwhile, the big question still remains – Is Trump actually going to run for president? “I am thinking of saying on live finale of The Apprentice finale on May 22 that in a few days I will be making an announcement about my decision,” Trump told the New York Times last month, claiming that the decision is a “tough” one because Celebrity Apprentice has been performing well in ratings. The decision is apparently tough because if Trump decides to run for president, he will no longer do the Apprentice.

Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of Celebrity Apprentice as we finally get to see the widely promoted smackdown showdown between Nene Leakes and Star Jones. A preview clip is below -

TELL US – SHOULD TRUMP KEEP HIS POLITICAL OPINIONS TO HIMSELF? IS HE HURTING THE SHOW? PLUS THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S NEW EPISODE?

Last night on Celebrity Apprentice, we discovered Nene Leakes continues to remain the most unaware person on earth, Hope Dworaczyk continues to slide under the radar, Gary Busey returned to the show through a reincarnation via the Meat Loaf, and oh yeah, Star Jones is definitely playing the game! So let the games begin.

The task was to have each group create 4 pages of ads for the Trump Hotels. Star stepped up to manage the women’s team since she’s been living the life of lux all her life, while John Rich volunteered to be the men’s PM since nobody else would.

Nene suffered another mild emotional breakdown and played victim yet again when she simply couldn’t understand why La Toya Jackson would tell Donald Trump she wanted to keep in touch with everyone on their team except her.

“I cannot understand what I”ve done to her personally for her to say that,” said the Nene. Seriously, she did… days after verbally attacking La Toya by calling her Casper and stating she was only famous because of her last name. Surreal. The Nene is starting to give me Kelly Kirazy Bensimon. La Toya stands her ground stating she simply told Trump how she felt. Star gets involved and has the ladies talk things out, which might have been a bad strategy on her part. Nene, probably realizing just how important La Toya’s last name is, says she wants to be friends and La Toya extends an olive branch.

Hope Dworaczyk

Breaking News: Nene Leakes is “Unstable!”

In a recent interview with E! Online, Celebrity Apprentice contestant Hope Dworaczyk speaks out about the erratic behavior of co-star Nene, calling her unstable and describing her behavior as “out of control”; she also gives the dirty details about just how much of a hot mess Celebrity Apprentice is – comparing it to another show where B-list celebrities go to extend their 15 minutes: Celebrity Rehab! Yikes – the Donald isn’t going to approve of that.

Not surprisingly, Hope and Nene got along well when Hope was just another minion, but when she stepped into the Project Manager role and had to be Nene’s boss, things went south. “I liked Nene a lot until I had to be her boss,” said Hope. “It got a little weird after that. I had to tell her what to do and I don’t think anybody wants to take direction from someone who is a lot younger than them.” Well that’s shocking! We all know Nene is hardly the domineering type who needs to be in control of everyone around her.

Hope also further ruins Nene’s stellar reputation as a polite, quiet, and respectful person who would never cause a scene, by letting us in on a little secret: Nene is an emotional mess and an out of control bully who attacked fellow contestant Star Jones in a manner that would justify Star needing a bodyguard. “I think if I had been yelled at and attacked the way Nene gets in Star’s face, I would have wanted a bodyguard, too,” said Hope. Nene Leakes!? Our Nene Leakes? Never!

Hope goes on to clarify that: “One minute she was crying and opening up about herself and sharing something about the past that’s very very personal, and the next minute, she’s yelling. I think you call that unstable.” Yes, I would say you definitely call that unstable.

Well Hope, that sounds like the Nene we all know and sort of sometimes… love? Ok, ok – like, on occasion, for comic relief. I guess that’s the risk you take when associating with Ms. Leakes – one minute she’s your bestie and the next minute she is calling you the B*word on national TV and screaming in your face! Just ask Kim Zolciack!

The E! story also briefly touches on Meat Loaf’s verbal assault on Gary Busey. Meat Loaf describes his actions as a “brief moment of total insanity.” In Nene Leakes’ case I guess you could describe her actions as a lifetime of total insanity!

Nene Leakes vs Star Jones take 10.

Following Nene’s latest shameful display on Celebrity Apprentice during which she verbally attacked La Toya Jackson for no good reason at all, Star is now speaking out against the Nene once again.

In a new interview with Popeater, Star tells the site “you never get involved in a pig fight,” when asked about Nene. “If you do, three things happen: you get dirty, you get tired, and only the pig has fun. It diminishes me to talk about her. I have so many other things going on in my life.”

And when it comes to her upcoming fight with Nene on the show, Star reveals she had to restrain herself from really going off. “In my heart, I think ‘pray, don’t act crazy, your grandmother is watching, your sorority sisters are watching, you were raised better than this,’” states Star.

Star, who recently released her book Satan’s Sisters, then takes the ultimate swipe at the Nene, referencing her past as a stripper. “I know there are people that value my opinion,” says Star about wanting to set a good example. “Plus, I’m not 20 minutes off the pole.” Ouch!

In other Nene news, RadarOnline is reporting she badly wants her own show. Apparently, Nene wants her own spin-off show a la Bethenny Frankel, or a talk show a la Oprah Winfrey.

“Nene is actively shopping herself around and she wants her own chat show and if that does not happen she would like her own reality show instead,” says a source. “She was encouraged when she did some slots with local television stations in Atlanta and she thinks that she has what it takes to be the next Oprah or Wendy Williams.”

The Nene has reportedly had talks with Bravo and VH-1 about getting her own show though a recent report states she and her Real Housewives of Atlanta costars have signed on to return for another season.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON STAR’S COMMENTS & NENE WANTING HER OWN SHOW? WOULD YOU WATCH A NENE SHOW?

The paparazzi caught up with Atlanta housewife and Celebrity Apprentice star Nene Leakes this weekend as she spent some time unwinding in Miami.

“Laying out @ the pool doing me! Just fabulous hunni,” tweeted Nene yesterday, the same day the above photo and many others below were taken.

Nene was photographed in a teeny neon yellow bikini top, playing with an ipad and reading magazines. She later caught up with Basketball Wives star Jennifer Williams yesterday night during which they both hung out. All of the photos are below.

Meanwhile, Star Jones appeared on the Wendy Williams Show this Friday during which she touched on the Nene feud. At first, Star appeared to take the high road. “I am an educated African American woman I am not going to lower myself. Period. Bar none,” stated Star.

Following further grilling by host Wendy, Star then added, “Did I sleep with her and forget to call the next day? Because I am starting to feel that way. Have you ever had an experience where someone talks about you again and again and again?”

Moving on to the Celebrity Apprentice as a new episode airs tonight on NBC at 9/8c.

On the fourth episode this season titled “Off the Hook,” the star contestants answer the call to produce a 30-second video for a video-phone product. While one team works on a tender ad that tugs at emotions, the other team creates a video loaded with controversy. Both Nene Leakes and Lil Jon will serve as project managers for their teams.
