VIDEO: Star Jones Calls NeNe Leakes An ‘Animal’

It’s safe to say Star Jones and NeNe Leakes won’t be sending each other Christmas cards this year.

On Tuesday’s edition of Ellen, Jones rips her Celebrity Apprentice co-star, calling Leakes an “animal” for her recent bursts of anger on the show.

“What were you thinking when NeNe was going off like that?” host Ellen DeGeneres asked Jones regarding an explosion between the two on the episode that aired Sunday.

“I was thinking my grandmother is going to watch this,” Jones said, adding that she wanted to keep grace under fire, so as to not embarrass her friends or family.

“I was thinking I need to keep calm because, not for nothing, but when you’re confronted in the wild with an un-caged animal you’re supposed to retreat,” Jones said, getting a shocked reaction from the studio audience. “You’re not supposed to attack.”

Ellen then asked Jones, a 49-year-old attorney, if she and the Real Housewives of Atlanta star, 42, are on better terms.

“Well, the lawyer in me would say, ‘We were not friends before, we were clearly not friends during, we are not friends after,’” Jones said. 

“OK, and the other you would say what?” Ellen asked.

“I don’t know that girl,” Jones said, “and I don’t hang with people like that.”
