NeNe Leakes: Star Jones Backstabs, Manipulates and LiesOn 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' (weekdays, syndicated), NeNe Leakes continued to bash 'Celebrity Apprentice' co-star Star Jones, referring to her as a "backstabber" and questioning the methods she used to play the game.

According to Leakes, she and Jones had started forming a relationship outside of the show. But, she saw a very different side of Jones once cameras began to roll. "I felt like we were establishing a relationship outside of 'Celebrity Apprentice,'" said Leakes. "And then, when we got on the show and I saw how backstabbing she was, it was very disappointing to me."

NeNe Leakes' Friends Say She Was Right to Quit 'Celebrity Apprentice'

by PopEater Staff, posted May 11th 2011 6:00AM
NeNe LeakesAfter weeks of battling with Star Jones, NeNe Leakes controversially walked out of 'The Celebrity Apprentice' Sunday night. Now, with celebrities and others lobbing the racist label at Donald Trump, NeNe's friends say that quitting the show in the shocking -- and low-rated -- episode, was a smart, principled move.

"Everything will ultimately work out for NeNe," said a friend of 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' star. "In the long run she was much better off to quit and walk away than get a job with Donald Trump."

It should be noted that each celebrity is playing to raise money for their charity rather than get a job within Trump's organization. It should also be noted that the 'Celebrity Apprentice' we're seeing on Sundays was taped months ago, before The Donald's now-floundering bid for the White House and string of attacks on President Obama that many believe reek of racism.

NeNe Leakes Quit 'Celebrity Apprentice' Because Donald Trump 'Disrespected' HerAccording to NeNe Leakes, she left 'The Celebrity Apprentice' because of Donald Trump's decision to switch her to the men's team as a way to end fighting between she and Star Jones. On 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated), Leakes said she felt "disrespected" by Trump and that this decision was her breaking point.

"The final straw for me was when Mr. Trump decided to switch me, take me out of my comfort zone to accommodate Star. I felt he was disrespecting me," said Leakes.

Donald Trump, 'Celebrity Apprentice'It was a wild night on 'Celebrity Apprentice' (Sun., 8PM ET on NBC). In a three-hour episode, there were two Boardrooms and two firings to get through. LaToya Jackson had just returned to the competition last week, becoming the first contestant in the history of the franchise to ever be invited back.

She vowed to prove that she could be more impressive on the men's team, and so Trump placed her there. But before the show could even get to that point, Donald Trump decided to address the constant fighting between NeNe Leakes and Star Jones.


So he split them up. Trump shifted NeNe over to the men's team and flipped Meat Loaf over to the women's side. Now Team Backbone had both Jackson and Leakes, and both teams were co-ed.

Star Jones and Meat Loaf Fight, Second Elimination on 'Celebrity Apprentice' (VIDEO)

Team A.S.A.P., 'Celebrity Apprentice'It was a long night of 'Celebrity Apprentice' (Sun., 8PM ET on NBC). It looks like they basically smashed two episodes together into three hours, complete with two challenges for the teams and two Boardroom eliminations.

But, before they even got into any of it, Trump mixed up the teams to separate NeNe Leakes and Star Jones. Team Backbone, which had just picked up LaToya Jackson last week, got Leakes, while Team A.S.A.P. picked up Meat Loaf.


Unfortunately, the new team roster on A.S.A.P. did little to stop the constant bickering. Only now, instead of NeNe and Star going at each other, it was Meat Loaf and Star.

'Celebrity Apprentice' Week Nine Results: Who Was Eliminated? (VIDEO)

Star Jones, Hope Dworaczyk, NeNe Leakes, 'Celebrity Apprentice'This week on 'Celebrity Apprentice' (Sun., 9PM ET on NBC), while one contestant left the show, another came back, as a delayed replacement for Jose Canseco, who quit. This week featured a lot of fighting between Star Jones and NeNe Leakes, but then again that's not really anything new.


At the challenge, teams had to produce a show to promote Farouk Systems hair care products, emphasizing their safety and that they are made in America. Lil Jon was project leader for the men, who brought in eliminated contestant Niki Taylor to help them out by being gorgeous and having gorgeous hair, and she did just that.

Why Donald Trump Wants Star Jones to Go Far on 'The Celebrity Apprentice'

'The Celebrity Apprentice' women's team presents Trump hotel campaign
This is far from the first time I've written these words, but I'm going to write them again: 'The Apprentice' is a sham of a competition, and it's because Donald Trump is the only one who determines who stays and who goes.

It's not like other competition shows, where a panel of judges have to come to some sort of consensus, or a voting show where the person who gets the fewest phoned-in, online and text votes goes home. No, the sorta-kinda-almost 2012 presidential candidate is the lone arbiter of whom gets fired, and he has often used weird rationales to fire someone who didn't necessarily deserve it, especially on the celebrity edition of the show (just ask Khloe Kardashian).

Trump used one of those rationales last night to fire La Toya Jackson. It was almost predictable. Even though Star Jones fumbled badly as the losing team's leader in last night's task, there was no way in hell she was ever going home. Why? Because Trump knows a good player when he sees one.

Gary Busey Wants More Time On 'Access Hollywood Live' (VIDEO)

Gary Busey on 'Access Hollywood Live'Gary Busey got the regular six or seven minutes for his interview on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC), but he apparently felt it was insufficient time to contain his signature brand of crazy. When his interview with Kit Hoover and guest co-host Star Jones was over, he stood up and yelled, jokingly, for more time.

Busey was on talking about 'Celebrity Apprentice,' which he called "the biggest carnival on the air." Jones, who along with Busey is a contestant on the show, gave Donald Trump his due. "It's like going to Donald J. Trump's boot camp for business," said Busey. "You pray for the best, prepare for the worst, you expect the unexpected, with sleep deprivation."

The interview pretty much ended there, but as the hosts were giving the outro to the segment, Busey shouted, "Is that it? Is that it? Is that it? Hey! This is short." At least he seemed cheerful about it.

Matthew McConaughey Offers Opinion on 'Celebrity Apprentice'On 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' (weekdays, syndicated), Matthew McConaughey admitted to being a fan of reality TV, especially 'Celebrity Apprentice.' McConaughey weighed in with his opinion on the competition's strongest players, the relationship between Star Jones and NeNe Leakes, and the ever-loopy Gary Busey.

McConaughey identified two players in particular with the potential to go far. "I think, who looks like they could be good at it, is going to be that John Rich," he said. "Star Jones is good at it. She's a diva, but she's good at it. Even when she's not team leader, she's taking control back there."

NeNe Leakes Calls Star Jones a 'Disaster' on 'Ellen'NeNe Leakes pulled no punches while discussing her 'Celebrity Apprentice' co-star Star Jones on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' (weekdays, syndicated). Although Leakes admitted that she and Jones are "OK" at the moment, she didn't do much to quell their ongoing, very-public war of words.

Without hesitation, Leakes described Jones as domineering and devious. "I don't think she's easy to get along with. She's a tough girl," she said. "She is bossy. She's manipulative, conniving. And I'm not even being funny. I think that is real. I honestly think that is who she is."

Star Jones Has Heartfelt Message for Women on 'Dr. Oz' (VIDEO)

Star Jones on 'The Dr. Oz Show'Star Jones was on 'The Dr. Oz Show' (weekdays, syndicated) talking about her health, and imploring women to be careful and find out as much as they can about their health. Jones, who survived heart surgery last year, drove the point home while holding a heart, touching with Dr. Oz the spot he called "the soul of the heart," because it's where the electricity that pumps the heart comes from.

Dr. Oz asked Jones to talk about how precious life is. Jones said she was overwhelmed, because she could have died, but didn't, and said other women will die if they don't look out for themselves. "Don't be scared of what you know," said Jones. "Be scared of what you don't know. What you don't know is what will kill you."

"I'm holding life in my hand," she added. "But I have life in my body because I took care of myself."
