Star Jones


So much for that report claiming Nene Leakes and 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.”

And finally, Nene spent some more time in California this week during which she hung out with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars Kyle Richards and Taylor Amrstrong.

“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’s friendship as the two have barely tweeted to each other in recent months. And while Kyle has been photographed filming numerous scenes with BFFs Faye Resnick and 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.

With Lisa Rinna out of the picture, the Celebrity Apprentice battle is now back to Nene Leakes vs Star Jones… or is it?

According to RadarOnline, Nene and Star are apparently trying to call a truce after coming to blows on the NBC show (on a yet to be aired episode), and slamming each other publicly in recent weeks. Example, Star tweeted a while back, “My neck does not turn when I argue a point & I didn’t spin around a pole to earn what I have. Water seeks its own level…#NotOnMine.” While Miss Nene made it clear she “wouldn’t spit on Star if she was on fire.”

A source tells Radar the ladies are now trying to reel it back in fearing the feud has gotten out of hand, Geez you think? “Both NeNe and Star are trying to get along better off set – it was really only when the show started taping that their competitiveness kicked-in,” reveals the source. “NeNe felt slighted by Star who she thought was not showing her enough respect – while Star believed that NeNe was all show and no substance.”

The source adds, “They are both head strong women and NeNe believed Star was trying to boss the other contestants around and on top of that they were feuding over hair, wardrobe and make-up too.”

The two are reportedly “trying to be more accepting of their differences” now. Though we’re not quite sure how accurate this story is as Nene has been recently hanging out with Al Reynolds aka Star’s ex-husband. In fact, Al tweeted a photo this week of himself hanging out with the Nene and Basketball Wives’ Jennifer Williams. That pic is below.

On tonight’s all new episode of Celebrity Apprentice titled “Unhappy Campers,” the celebrities use two RVs to organize a recreation experience in the core of the Big Apple. It’s a bumpy ride, however, when one project manager falls victim to a power grab and the other team questions a leader’s mental competence.

A preview clip is below -

TELL US – WHO’S WORSE? NENE OR STAR? THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S 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.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE LISA & STAR FEUD? WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ON? PLUS THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S EPISODE?

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.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE SEASON PREMIERE OF CELEBRITY APPRENTICE?

Following slams by Nene Leakes, not once but twice, Star Jones is finally responding to her Celebrity Apprentice costar.

If you recall, Nene recently went on the Wendy Williams Show and stated, “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.”  Star is now telling her side to Black Voices and below is what she had to say-

“This actually saddens me. Black women trashing other black women all for the sake of personal aggrandizement. When the cast was first announced, I was both excited and concerned. Excited that this was going to be the most diverse cast in prime-time reality programming and concerned because the media immediately started the drumroll of “can this many black women get along?” The four of us actually chatted about the unique opportunity we had to influence the perception of black women and the way we interact. We each brought something different to the show, so I had hoped we could avoid falling into the typical “snake charmer in your face loud bombastic black woman” stereotypical box that was expected. Some of us were more successful at our quest than others.”

In other news, the YBF blog is reporting that Nene and her Real Housewives of Atlanta costar Phaedra Parks went at it during a local radio interview on Wednesday.

The smackdown occurred on the “Rickey Smiley Morning Show” when Nene called in to talk about Star and Phaedra.  Following Nene’s trash talking, Phaedra then called in to the show and a back-and-forth ensued.  Below are some of the “highlights” -

Nene On Phaedra being an Equestrian:

“You are sitting on the same show I’m sitting on so your attorney work must not be working out for you. And as far as her being an equestrian, I don’t know that for sure. But she was raised in the projects of Athens and they didn’t ride horses. They barely drove cars through there… If I wanted to ride a horse I could have rode one.  I decided to drive a car.”

Nene on Phaedra Being a Lawyer:

“Now she can be a class act act or whatever you want to call it….And I don’t care if she went to school for 20 years, you end up on the same show I am on. And I do more than you do and make more money than you so what’s next?”

Phaedra On Growing Up in Athens and NeNe’s Attitude:

“I don’t have any issues with NeNe. I did not grow up in the ghetto cause there are no ghettos is Athens (Georgia). You have forgotten a lot about high school. You have forgotten a lot about your hometown. And from what I understand, you say you are from New York but you’ve been in Athens since you were three years old. So it’s not amazing to me that you would forget most things.”

The ladies reportedly went back and forth before one of the female members of the radio show cut off the conversation.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON STAR’S STATEMENT & NENE VS PHAEDRA?

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.
