VIDEO: NeNe Freaks Out At Star During Celebrity Apprentice Finale

NeNe Leakes and Star Jones clashed for old time’s sake on Sunday’s live finale of Celebrity Apprentice.

The outspoken Real Housewives of Atlanta star, who abruptly left the cutthroat reality show show mid-season after repeated run-ins with Jones, said she did what she felt was best in leaving via text message.

“I needed to leave,” Leakes told Donald Trump.

That’s when the Donald got out his gold-plated spoon and began stirring things up, asking the bitter enemies what they thought of one another.

Jones lit a fuse, saying she believed Leakes went out of her way to assert herself against every black woman she came across on the show.

This, of course, prompted an explosive reaction from the mercurial Leakes.

“It’s not about black, it’s not about a racial thing!” Leakes ranted. “You used this platform to be very backstabbing and very manipulative!”

Jones — who had to talk over Leakes’ loud squawking — said that as a professional, she was “embarrassed” by Leakes’ behavior.

Their colleague LaToya Jackson gave her two cents, saying that “Star was really manipulating everything that was going on [and] NeNe has a really good heart.”

Prior to Sunday’s show, both had badmouthed the other in appearances on Ellen, with Jones calling Leakes “an uncaged animal.”
