"Celebrity" Catfight: NeNe Leakes Vs. Star Jones

Published March 23, 2011

There’s apparently no love lost between “Celebrity Apprentice” co-stars NeNe Leakes and rival Star Jones.

According to People.com, the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” diva slammed the former prosecutor Wednesday during an appearance on the “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”

Leakes called Jones a “disaster” as well as “bossy,” “manipulative” and “conniving.”  "I'm not even being funny,” she went on to blast the former co-host of “The View.” “I think that is real. I honestly think that is who she is.”

While the outspoken Atlanta peach stopped short of declaring an official beef between the two of them, Leakes made it crystal clear she and Jones were never BFFs.

“When I walked into the situation, I tried to walk in with no preconceived notions,” she said of her introduction to Jones and all the other participants of Donald Trump’s reality show. “I was just thinking, 'Okay, I'm going to do the show. I'm going to get to know who Star is,'" she said.

"I think she had preconceived notions of who she thought I was just from watching me on the Housewives," she went on. "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."
