Nene Leakes Vents on Talk Show About ‘Back Stabber’ Star Jones.
NeNe Leakes is a tough chick.
First, she ended the latest season of ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ having a big blowout with castmate Kim Zolciak.
Then she had a falling-out with fellow ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ contestant Star Jones while shooting the series. The new season of Donald Trump’s reality hit premieres this weekend.
On Friday, Leakes appeared on CBS’ daytime series ‘The Talk’ to promote the show. And, sure enough, Julie Chen and the ladies asked what was going on between Jones and Leakes. The ‘Housewives’ star had no interest in denying reports of a feud.
“Star’s not nice,” was Leakes’ quick reply. “I believe…that anybody who has ever worked with her would side with me,” Leakes said. “She’s not a nice person. She’s a witch…with a ‘b’ in front.”
How did their war of words begin? Leakes claims that when she first joined NBC’s ‘Celebrity Apprentice,’ she went to dinner and lunch and double-dated with Jones, because she had “no preconceived notions” and “wanted to get to know her.” But soon, she claims it became apparent that Jones was a “back stabber.”
“And I called her on it,” Leakes says of the former ‘View’ star, “Only because I’m loyal, and she’s not.”
For her part, Jones reportedly hired security to make sure Leakes would keep her distance.
