In Jones’ appearance as a “no-nonsense” judge on “Drop Dead Diva” this Sunday (Aug. 26), she doesn’t share any scenes with fellow guest star Kardashian, but she tells Zap2it, “Kim is a prominent part of my scene because she has some pertinent information to add — her character is important to mine.”
“I’m hoping they ask me back,” Jones says about her “Diva” role, but she isn’t interested in pursuing serious acting.
“I think I’m too uptight,” she says with a laugh. “I’m Star Jones!”
“I can [play a judge or attorney] in my sleep every day of the week,” she adds. “But if you ask me to be a cracked-out prostitute with no makeup and no eyelashes, I’m gonna have a problem!”
Nor is she willing to return to “The Celebrity Apprentice,” which is expected to air an “all-star” edition next year. “Absolutely not!” she says unequivocally. “Not even close.”
“I’ve done everything I needed to do,” explains Season 11’s fifth-place finisher. “I raised a tremendous amount of money and awareness for the American Heart Association. [So] no, honey, that’ll never happen. You can go to sleep thinking about it.”
Jones’ “Drop Dead Diva” guest spot — alongside Kardashian, Dylan Walsh and Nancy Grace — airs Sunday, Aug. 26 at 9 p.m. on Lifetime.
