If you were to ask “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star NeNe Leakes how she feels about her “Celebrity Apprentice” cast mate Star Jones, don’t expect her to respond with her cryptic “Bloop! Bloop!” exclamation. Honey chile, she’s got a lot more to say than that!
“She is bossy, she is manipulative, conniving,” Leakes states on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” which airs on Wednesday. “And I’m not even being funny. I think that is real. I honestly think that is who she is.”
Although the reality star claims she came onto Donald Trump’s show “with no preconceived notions” of Miss Jones, she thinks her nemesis was full on judging her with a capital ‘J.’
“I think she had preconceived notions of who she thought I was just from watching me on the ‘Housewives,’” she tells Ellen. “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 easiest person to get to know. She is a disaster.”
Unlike NeNe, Star’s been trying to hold back on slamming her uncensored teammate. Recently, she released a statement to Life & Style, saying she didn’t want her purpose of raising money for charity on the show to be “reduced to a cliché where black women attack one another for publicity’s sake….”
So how does The Don feel about this epic battle between the divas? Earlier today, while visiting the ladies on “The View,” Donald Trump confessed that frankly, he loves it.
“NeNe is tough, and so is Star,” he says. “They go at each other; it’s unbelievable. It makes Omarosa look like a very kind, sweet woman.”
