LaToya Jackson calls her Celebrity Apprentice co-star Star Jones “mean” on Wednesday’s edition of Ellen, and RadarOnline.com has all the details for you.
“[Celebrity Apprentice contestant] NeNe [Leakes] was here not too long ago and she doesn’t care for Star too much,” Ellen DeGeneres told LaToya. “Are you having a hard time with Star as well?
“I think everybody has a hard time with Star,” Jackson said of Jones, the 49-year-old attorney, and former co-host of The View. “I really do.”
Ellen asked, “She’s a tough one, right?”
“She really is,” Jackson said.
“Is it tough or is it mean?” Ellen asked. ”What is it?”
“Ok, I don’t want to say anything really bad,” Jackson said.
“Ok, just say something sort of bad,” Ellen pried.
Jackson countered, saying “What do you think it might be?”
“Well, she seems … I don’t like to judge because I don’t know, but she seems very, very tough,” Ellen said.
“In all fairness, yes,” LaToya confirmed.
“Well, don’t just agree with me: Is she mean or is she tough?” Ellen asked.
“Ok, she’s mean … because I always say, if I had lost that much weight I would have been so happy and pleased with myself,” LaToya said in reference to Jones’ well-documented gastric bypass surgery of yesteryear. “It’s something inside that’s hurting her to react that way to everyone … just put a smile on your face sometimes!”
