Oh boy! Celebrity Apprentice hasn’t even begun yet and already the stories being leaked are doozies! It seems like there was a huge cat-fight on the show between Star Jones and NeNe Leakes, one that prompted Starr Jones to hire her owns security detail to help protect her. Keep reading to find out more about what happened.
According to sources on the set of Celebrity Apprentice, NeNe Leakes, who is one of the most outspoken on The Real Housewives Of Atlanta, can not get along with anyone and is a constant source of tension and battle. She gets in argument with all the women making LaToya Jackson cry and trying to pick a fight with legendary singer Dione Warwick. However, it is the battle she gets into with lawyer Star Jones, who can also be easily set off, that causes the most drama. A source at NBC told E! “Clearly, she can’t get along with women, especially other black women. She is losing it.”
NeNe Leakes didn’t even try to hide her hatred towards Starr Jones on a recent interview with Wendy Williams, “I’m not feeling Star Jones, I’m sorry. I gave her a chance when I first got there, I did,” she told Wendy, later adding, “I wouldn’t spit on Star if she was on fire.” Ouch!
Star’s friend tells E! that the feeling is mutual but that Star will not stoop to NeNe’s level. “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.”
Star knows she is safe because NeNe’s behavior was bad enough that Star hired round the clock security to make sure that NeNe stays away from her.
Do you think the security was needed or do you think that Star is just being dramatic? Are you going to watch Celebrity Apprentice when it premieres in March? Comment below and let us know what you think.
