NeNe Leakes Quits Celebrity Apprentice, Rails Against Donald Trump and Star Jones

by at . Comments

The drama heated up on The Celebrity Apprentice this week, with a double firing - Star Jones and LaToya Jackson - and a third cast member quitting!

NeNe Leakes, the one who peaced out, has plenty to say about it.

In the aftermath of the explosive episode, NeNe is going off on Donald Trump, saying she "feels good" about leaving since Trump disrespected her.

Leakes adds that her feud with Star was real and is PISSED that Trump changed the teams last night to "accommodate" the View alum/loudmouth.

NeNe reaming out Star has become a highlight of the current season, with Leakes alleging her counterpart has been disingenuous and unreasonable.

Jones, for her part, tried to paint her adversary as a reality TV loudmouth.

"Trump was doing things to accommodate Star and not me," she said. "All of the manipulating ... was very toxic. It was a very toxic situation."

Leakes felt producers constantly tried to "provoke" her, and "I'm not a quitter or a loser, but I had to walk out of the show for my own sanity."

“Star was one person on camera and another person off camera. I felt like we were trying to form a friendship, and I’m very loyal," she adds.

"I saw her being very backstabbing and it really threw me. I haven’t heard from her and I don’t mind not hearing form her. I don’t hold a grudge and it cost me nothing to say hello, but I don’t want to have anything to do with her.”

"I feel good about leaving and I don't regret it," the Real Housewives of Atlanta star says. "I don't believe you need to act like that for charity."

I think NeNe was very trashy when she went after Star Jones in front of a client, Donald, his daughter and his son. I agreed with what she said to Star but she should it wait. I always say pick your fights, and to me it was bad timing. About Star Jones she is a real snake and I am glad she was finally fired. I was not happy when Latoya was fired. I know she was not a very strong player but she was kind and down to earth. About Nene, I think at least she should it tell their team members she was leaving,and that was wrong. Well I knew soon or later she will be fired too. Anyway, she really make me laught many times.

how can any of you like nene? she is the most classless piece of shit i have ever seen on TV, ratings or no ratings what she did in front of the client last week was the most unprofessional thing and she should have been fired immediately, im glad shes gone, complete piece of trash, also she shouldn't wear alot of the clothing she was wearing on the show, she doesn't have the figure TBH, she is built like an NFL linebacker and one of her eyes is cocked, everything about this women disgusted me..

I used to be a NeNe fan, but after watching her downward spiral, I have lost my love for her. She has problems with everyone & wants to fight. I think alot of it is for air time. She needs to pay the bills. If everywhere you go you get into an argument then you are the problem.

Celebrity Apprentice has had me glued to the tv for weeks. Nene and Star's feud heated up once the other drama "Gary Busey" was no longer on the show. They had to have the drama. Star and Dionne Warwick are two people that need to find God. They are selfish, self-centered, and just downright mean. I am sorry Nene didn't hang on, but I understand. Star was a total back stabber. Gives you allot of confidence in the lawyers doesn't it? She is a major manipulator and needs to get a life out of the spotlight. She is so over her "15 minutes of fame".

Thought for today:
Some things you just can Not make up!!
Latoya returned to the scene and got fired.
NeNe left the scene and got fired.
Star stuck around, was seen and heard and got fired.
Adding fuel to the firings:
Latoya won lots of money for her charity.
Star won lots of money for her charity.
And,just because I have to give credit it's due,
NeNe did Not win any money at all for her charity, even though she was project manager twice, I guess she ends up with the title "the biggest loser",she walked out and was fired in absentia!!

I enjoy watching Celebrity Apprentance after a long week. I met NeNe in the airport one day and took a picture with her. She seemed very nice. She seems straight foward and Star Jone's comment about "America will see the difference between an educated black woman and a not so educated black woman" This comment is unfair. I think there are many woman out there who have not had the luxury to go to college or get an eduction. However, I find education is important but I do not think it defines the individaul. I think manners cost nothing, we do not choose our parents or the enviorment we are raised in. Education is only a tool and so is Star Jones.

Sometimes you don't have to prove to everyone just how right you are, as for NeNe, she couldn't take the confrontation any longer and bowed out like a lady. Her point was proven when Star got what she deserved. I don't believe Donald Trump is prepared to meet head on with a strong black woman. NeNe appears to be an honest person and just want to live her life without being labeled. I admire her for her action, if you live right, what is for you will come your way regardless.
