While we still haven’t reached the point where NeNe Leakes and Star Jones turn on each other on “The Celebrity Apprentice,” we know it’s coming. They’ve been battling a war of words for months now.
In the latest round, our partner site, Daytime Confidential, had a chance to ask Star exclusively what she felt about comments NeNe made to Zap2it.
“[Star] may have gone to Harvard,” NeNe told us. “She may have ten degrees, but it’s funny she’s in the same place I’m in. And that’s what bothers Star – that she went to school for eight to ten years and she has to stand beside me.”
When Daytime Confidential asked Star about NeNe Leakes’ comments, she told them, “No no, no. We’re not on the same level. Let’s make that clear. We’re on the same show.”
She later adds, “In all honesty, I would never compare myself to another African-American woman. I would never tear down another African-American woman in order to elevate myself. Cream rises to the top and water seeks its own level.”
That last bit sounds like a comparison to us, no?
Now that we’ve seen a couple episodes of “The Celebrity Apprentice,” who do you think will start this war that’s still raging? Star or NeNe?
