We have to admit that after months of going at each other in the press since wrapping “The Celebrity Apprentice,” NeNe Leakes seems to have been telling the truth about Star Jones. And NeNe loves it.
She appeared on Wednesday’s (March 23) episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and the host asked the real housewife if we’re seeing everybody’s personalities accurately, NeNe replied, “I believe that you are. Big bossy Star. Laid back NeNe. You are seeing all of that.”
And it’s true, we’ve seen NeNe cause very little trouble on the show so far. In fact, she comes off as very much the team player. Star, on the other hand, hasn’t been that fortunate.
“She is bossy, she is manipulative, conniving,” Leakes later says of Star. “And I’m not even being funny. I think that is real. I honestly think that is who she is.”
In fact, NeNe echoed some things she told Zap2it when we spoke with her — that she tried to get along with the former “The View” co-host in the beginning.
“I think she had preconceived notions of who she thought I was just from watching me on the ‘Housewives,'” NeNe says. “I think she thought I was going to come in and take over. I tried to get to know her. Some people are difficult to get to know. She’s not the easiest person to get to know. She is a disaster.”
Do you agree with NeNe? Has Star proven to be the problem and not the Atlanta housewife?
