What is Nene Leakes beef with Star Jones?

Nene Leakes and Star Jones will both be on  NBC show Celebrity Apprentice scheduled for March of this year. Over the last few weeks Nene Leakes, whose claim to fame is being on the Bravo show Real Housewives of Atlanta has appeared on various talks shows badmouthing Star Jones. On the Wendy Williams Show, Leakes said she “would not spit on Star Jones if she was on fire.” Finally, Jones has had enough of this foolishness and she has released the following statement,”I did Celebrity Apprentice to raise money and awareness for a charity [the American Heart Association] that has been instrumental in my life, not to see it reduced to a cliché where black women attack one another for publicity’s sake…I haven’t commented on any of her comments in hopes that she would remember that we all participated in this show for charity and not as a vehicle to promote ourselves and such hatred. I was clearly wrong and I decided to finally respond.” You go Star, you are trying to take the high road and unfortunately that is a foreign path for the ultimate wannabee Nene Leakes.

Both comments and trackbacks are currently closed.

    “I did Celebrity Apprentice to raise money and awareness for a charity [the American Heart Association] that has been instrumental in my life, not to see it reduced to a cliché where black women attack one another for publicity’s sake”

    I agree and Star’s right. It seems like open season on diminishing black women in the media. Trump and the Omarosa effect promoting the negative stereotypes of black women. I am starting to really get sick and tired of it. And when I get to that point, I am going to take action.
