Nene Leakes was known for popping off on a fellow co-star (or two) on The Real Housewives of Atlanta and when she joined the cast of Celebrity Apprentice it wasn't long before she found herself clashing with fellow contestant Star Jones. The feud played out in front of the cameras and in the media, but after a screaming match came to blows, RadarOnline.com reports the hot heads are trying to bury the hatchet before the drama goes any further.
“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,” said a 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.”
NeNe didn't help the situation when she appeared on the Wendy Williams Show and said: “Star is special... I wouldn't spit on her if she were on fire.”
Jones has had problems with other contestants on the show as well. When Lisa Rinna was fired on the latest episode she angrily accused Jones of throwing her under the bus and the two have been reportedly arguing behind the scenes as well.
That’s a lot of hostility for a show that raises money for charity. The drama is probably helping the ratings, but if the reports are true, at least Leakes and Jones are trying to put aside the childish spats and play nice.
