NeNe Leakes: I wouldn't spit on Star Jones if she was on fire

NeNe Leakes ended this season of "Real Housewives of Atlanta" with a big blowout with cast mate Kim Zolciak. Now it seems she has no love for fellow "Celebrity Apprentice" contestant Star Jones, either.

"I'm not feeling Star Jones, I'm sorry," Leakes told talk show host Wendy Williams on February 8. "I gave her a chance when I first got there, I did."

While Leakes tried to be nice, the two women just couldn't get along.

"Star, I'm just going to tell you, Star is a trip — like she is very special, I really — she’s special," Leakes says of the former "The View" co-host. " No seriously — I wouldn’t spit on Star if she was on fire."


The battle begins when "Celebrity Apprentice" — which features a cast that includes La Toya Jackson, Lisa Rinna, Meat Loaf and David Cassidy, among others — returns to NBC on March 6.

    It's too bad that NeNe is getting bashed for being outspoken and honest. She told the truth about Kim and Star. I like NeNe and admire her truthfulness. Star Jones is a two-faced liar - from her wedding, firing, to her weight loss. NeNe comes straight at you, while Star sneaks up and stabs you in the back.

    Isn't it easier to name how many people actually like Star? You could probably count them on one hand! I don't care WHAT those ladies on The View say. I'm sure they're glad she's gone and glad they don't have to listen to all her BS! This is one woman that should GO AWAY and never come back! NO ONE would miss her.

    NeNe doesn't care if the woman is black or white, male or female, she'll throw shade on anyone if she thinks you done her wrong. But the good news is that she's taking on Ms. Star Jones-Reynolds, editor at large.

    Seriously, we do not have the luxury to behave in such a fashion. Unfairly, we all carry the reputation of our race on our shoulders. We are not seen as individuals. This type of behavior discredits every Black woman working to move us forward.
    Star is a powerful Black woman and should receive her props for standing in the face of discrimination and becoming a Star in a profession where too many Black women have been denied entry. We are competing against those that believe we have no right to sit at the table and if we are sitting at the table we must defer to the people in power (Barbara Walters) otherwise we are out the door. Star a powerful Black woman. She is the role model the media does not want us to see.

    Star should respond as follows:

    I hope Nene gets over this fight a black woman phase/fight women of her life! It's too stereotypical and not accurate of the real love/respect we black women show each other! Fight the real enemies Nene, not your sisters! Women period shouldn't fight each other it just reinforces mens' ideals that women do not belong in the workplace and are too emotional!

    Who TH is NeNe Leakes? Never heard of her nor how to pronouce that name: NEE NEE? Nenah? At least I know who Star Jones is and I'd venture to say Star could drag her out to the street and give her a good beat-down, and top it off with a nice spit-ball.

      Do you think everyone that has cable is a fan of the useless, always fighting stupid housewives reality show.
      There are more entertaining, educative shows to watch on several other channels.

      Nene would beat the BRAKES offa that greasy Star Jones.
      Yes she may be more ghetto but that's where she got tough. If you think Star Jones would last 3 SECONDS with Nene Leakes than you don't KNOW Nene Leakes.
      I woulda loved to see Nene give heffa Star Jones a beat down.

      I hope so. I used to really like Nene...she has gotten way too out of hand. With every season of RHWA, she gets more and more arrogant, jealous, and ignorant. Her class level has gone way down.

    Nene is a lil too much. A source who worked in the set of the Apprentice, told me NeNe mad an ass of herself on the show. Her and Star constantly at odds, to the point everyone was glad she got “fired”. She didn’t make it to the finale. He told the me the main difference between Star and Nene is intelligence. And that’s what NeNe lacks….

      Ne-Ne Leakes can't get along with anyone she's a very jealous hearted woman. Ne Ne needs to be careful jumping up in everyone's face, she going to get the major beat down, and it soon to come. Bloop..Bloop Ne Ne is a overly giant ass bully who's ADHD. I honestly believe she had to have been in Special Education Classes in school. Which is clearly defined as ESE, LOL..... Girl did u take your CRAZY PILLS before the show IJS. Star Jones please don't lower your standards to ignorance at all Class vs. Ghetto not Ne Ne is hopeless and clueless with her broke intern 11 ass.
