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 never knew much about Star Jones because frankly she is just not that interesting. However, after watching her on Celebrity Apprentice I think she is an awful person and would never watch any show she was on. I could not find one good quality in her. NeNe has always had a problem with filtering her comments but it was nice to see her go after Star.

I am a HUGE NeNe fan...have been from day one (Housewives) I do NOT blame her for leaving but truly wish she would've at least met w Trump privately before leaving the way she did. As far as Star, she is a pompous ASS...she got what she deserved last night. Good Riddance!!!!

Nene, I love you and people that have negative things to say are doing that because they themselves are weak and have no BACKBONE! Yes, I said it. Say what you mean and mean what you say. Star, I have to tell you that you are weak and spineless. I do believe that when what's his name? got out he did it for a reason. Now we know what that is. I also noticed that you had a look of disdain on your face when La Toya came back. You are used to having your way. Well, now you and your little funky dog can go home to kibble and bits.

I think that NeNe should have stayed and weathered the storm with Star. I do agree that Donald did seem to bend over backwards to please Star, and then let LaToya come back, probably hoping for some big money from her, but to me if he is going to let Latoya come back,even though he did end up firing her, I would like to see NeNe come back though I don't believe this will happen. NeNe tells it like it is, no filter, and she isn't one to put up with bs from ANYONE, DONALD included. Yes, she does have a temper which comes out when she has been pushed pass the point of tolerating BS from people, but I believe she was a very hard worker, and I enjoy her period!

I have to agree with you Wendy, Star is a snake and she wonders why she got the treatment she received from the View and being fired from two of her favorite people she looked up too.. There is a reason for everything and this is Star's reality check.. Sometimes you have to step back and figure out what are "You" doing wrong and correct it.. Otherwise, it continues until you have no friends and no one wants to work with you because of your actions.. Star just don't seem to get it...

Donald Trump enjoys having "flunkies" and "yes" people stroking his inflated ego, NeNe is too real for that nonsense as far as Star Jones, she is nothing more than a pimple on the ass of life.

Nene is nothing but a BIG LOSER no matter what show she is on!! She is a loud mouth and a egotistical spoiled brat!!! TheDONALD should never have let her be on teh show in the first place! She is not a STAR, nor will she ever be one!! Disrepsect, she needs to learn the meaning of the word!!! She makes me sick!!!

I just wished that NeNe can just learn how to express herself without coming across as a bully or ghetto.. She seems to like to over talk you and sometimes she talks soooo much and yelling soooo much that people really miss her point because of her actions.. All everyone sees is her acting a fool and in fact she is bringing up excellent points but it's just very difficult to get pass the attitude...

Star Jones is a venomous snake, and she got everything that was coming to her last night. In fact, Nene is right, Trump HAS been kissing her behind and should NOT have accomodated Star. She made practically every player's life a living hell, why shouldn't Star have to endure a little discomfortof her own. My only regret is that Nene didn't stick around and continue to stand up to that creep!

I must agree that NeNe is an loud mouth but what she states is true when it comes to Star etc.. Star got fired from the show and she seemed very hurt but you do not have to throw anyone under the bus to get ahead or win... Star was project manager and has failed as well along with NeNe... I think it was cold of Star when she failed as the project manager to throw La'Toya under the bus and in fact La'Toya came back to be on the mens team and I do not know if anyone saw what I saw but Star looked real funny... It's a shame that raising money for good causes bought out very ugly pictures of the stars on the show.. This is truly a lesson everyone can learn from..
