Nene Leakes Lets Star Jones Have It Calling Her Bossy, Manipulative And Conniving

The war between NeNe Leakes and Star Jones rages on.  During an interview on The "Ellen" Show, NeNe was very descriptive when it came to describing Star's character.  Find out what NeNe said inside....

 

On today's edition of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" NeNe Leakes was on to promote "Celebrity Apprentice" and of course her rivalry with Star Jones came up during the discussion.  When asked about how they got along, NeNe said she tried to get to know Star in the beginning but the pair were never friendly.

NeNe gave the impression that Star is just a very difficult personality to along with.  But it was when NeNe really broke it down that the insults started flying. 

"She is bossy, she is manipulative, conniving," Leakes says. "And I'm not even being funny. I think that is real. I honestly think that is who she is."

Star has not responded to NeNe's latest round of insults but I'm sure we can expect some kind of response soon.

 

Here's how the conversation went:

Ellen: Do you think they're showing everybody accurately? Are we seeing everyone's personalities?
Nene: I believe that you are. Big bossy Star. Laid back Nene. You are seeing all of that.

Ellen: Now, when you say, "Big bossy Star," because you're not getting along with Star from what I see right now.
Nene: We are okay right now.

Ellen: A few people don't get along with Star.

Nene: I don't think anybody is getting along with Star. I don't think she's easy to get along with. She's a tough girl. We're kind of okay. I'm trying to feel her out right now.

Ellen: What happened to cause the riff?

Nene: Well, I just think Star is manipulative. You don't want me to really break it down now?

Ellen: No, I do.

Nene: I will tell it like it is. I will try to not tell it like it is is, but I will tell it like it is. She is bossy, she is manipulative, conniving. And I'm not even being funny. I think that is real. I honestly think that is who she is.

Ellen: Now, do you think she thinks she is those things? I think she knows she has a strong personality and she's controlling.

Nene: She is controlling. I think that she knows. Yeah. She looks in the mirror, she better know.

Ellen: You started as friends though.

Nene: No. We weren't friends. I will say this, when I walked into the situation, I tried to walk in with no preconceived notions. I was just thinking, "Okay, I'm going to do the show. I'm going to get to know who Star is." I think she had preconceived notions of who she thought I was just from watching me on the "Housewives." 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 easiest person to get to know. She is a disaster.

NeNe Leakes is so over the

NeNe Leakes is so over the top. She is classless and unrefined. She does have extreme bully tactics. NeNe is loud, overtalks people, and does not listen to reason. Everything that she say and thinks is correct - opposed to her listening to constructive criticism while doing the Celebrity Apprentice Show. She missed the whole point in a lot of areas with her team mates by being so crass - this forum/arena was not Housewives of Atlanta (ignorant)! She's mad at Star Jones why? The only thing that I can think of Star educated & professional – NeNe is not. NeNe only knows how to exude gutter language as she displayed at different points of the show. NeNe really, really needs to meet the right people with that month of hers, they would indeed re-adjust that attitude. Meet some real people with real life issues they would beat that azz of hers real good.

Nene is intimated by Star

Nene is intimated by Star simply because Star is educated, articulate and smart. All qualities that Nene lacks. I have yet to hear mention her charity on any of the talk shows she's been on. She's too focused on bashing Star and prolonging her 15 minutes. Donald Trump is making a fortune off of this dumbass. It's the only reason he asked her to be on Celebrity Apprentice. He needed another Omarosa.

I'm happy to see another side of Nene other than the loud mouth controlling person I see on RHOA. So far on The Apprentice, Nene is actually likeable and respectable of other people. Good job Nene!

THE ONLY REASON WHY U HAVEN'T

THE ONLY REASON WHY U HAVEN'T SEEN NENE ACTING A FOOL(yet) IS B/C ON THIS SHOW UNLIKE RHOA SHE'S SURROUNDED BY REAL SUCCESSFUL, EDUCATED, ACCOMPLISHED & RICH WOMEN SO SHE'S OUTTA HER ELEMENT & FEELS INFERIOR. SO SHE CAN'T LOUD TALK THEM TO GET OVER & MAKE HERSELF FEEL SUPERIOR. THEY WOULD PUT HER IN HER HOODRAT PLACE USING WORDS SHE PROBABLY WOULDN'T KNOW HOW TO SPELL OR THE DEFINITION OF.............JENNY JONES!!!!

If this is how NeNe Leakes

If this is how NeNe Leakes really feels, how about standing up and saying it to Star’s face on the show instead of saving it for confessionals on the show/TV interviews and letting Star control the women’s team on “Celebrity Apprentice”?
Keith's picture

Interesting choice of words

Interesting choice of words Nene used because they apply to her too! Anyone who watched RHOA knows Nene had to always be in control. When she wasnt she went into ATTACK MODE. Kim was getting attention from her singing and Nene couldnt handle it. She displayed a lot of selfishness. Especially when she was encouraging Cynthia to leave her own bachelorette party because SHE was not getting along with Kim and Sweety. She wasnt caring about Cynthia being upset, she was just using it as an excuse to spite Kim. Nene = BOSSY, CONIVING and MANIPULATIVE. She's a quintessential narcissist and reality tv has given her the PERFECT vessel to be as narcissicist as she pleases!!

Nene is very similar to Star

Nene is very similar to Star and she recognize that but on The Apprentice, she seems to know when to use that part of her. Star doesn't seems to know when to turn off that part of her. She seems to be always in the court room. She was always that way on The View and The Apprentice was an opportunity for Star to show another side of her. It seems to me that Nene is operating much like Richard Hatch who was very bossy, controlling etc on his project but when he was put up to be fired, he rethink his strategy. He now lies low on other people's projects and do his task the best he can. As far as I can see, Nene seems to be doing the same.

I watch Celebrity Apprentice

I watch Celebrity Apprentice and I see that Star Jones is very controlling and bossy but I think that is her real personality I also think she really wants to win this game...NeNe is also a very dominat personality but I think she is laying in the cut right now..plus this is unfamiliar territory to her..but once she gets the feel of these celeb she will show the world the NeNe we all know from ATL Housewives..just give her a minute...this is just episode #3...NeNe is to strong a personality to remain under the radar...I think her beef may be because Starr probably is the reason why she is gonna be fired, but we will have to wait til that show airs to see why she has such a beef with Starr..

Don't get me wrong, I like

Don't get me wrong, I like that Star has the personality to play the game but I don't like that she takes over other people's projects. She should be more focus on the tasks that are assigned to her and about doing a good job on them because she was the one who wrote the words to the children's book and didn't even realize that the fonts were too small for kids to read. Had she been focus on only working on her task at hand and not on running the entire project, she would have gotten a better result. Star likes the spotlight and likes to be running things like assigning duties, telling people what to do etc.

I think Nene is saying that Star is not just playing a game. She is like that all the time. Also, Nene is not the only one, LaToya Jackson and Lisa Rinna are not saying nice things about Star either. Even the model Niki Taylor questioned if Star is just playing the game or really is like that. I really believe Star is like that all the time. There are no off days for her!

I think NeNe is missing one

I think NeNe is missing one very important factor, Star was a lawyer in corporate America and lawyer's are master manipulator's, they are not pushovers for the loud mouthed types or anyone else. Maybe Nene ddid't have to have that resolve on a stripper pole when usually all she did was bendover anyway. Suck it up NeNe and go back to school, maybe your son will straighten his act up.

Well it seems like you have not been watching celebrity apprentice; Star did not really get along with anyone, she did come across bossy and talking to people as if they are a child. It has nothing to do with being a lawyer, its about respect.

I saw Star last night on E! Entertainment and she said she is just what NeNe said, that she's in it to win it, and basically doesn't give a rat's ass what people think. (Al really fucked her head up)...lol. Anywho, the new book that she's promoting are based aroung a morning talk show hosted by five ladies....gee Star...I wonder who. I'm not liking this chic much right now and after watching a few episodes of Celebrity Apprentice, I believe NeNe. JMO.

NeNe, Star Jones does not owe you NOTHING.. especially friendship which you desperately wanted so you could feel big. NeNe what you did was proved to Star that you're not worth the time of day.

Why, oh why do we continue to extend Nene Leakes 15 mins of fame? Enough of her already. I don't use this word, but she is a coon and also a bully. She's shucking and jiving for white people, making Donald Trump that big money with her loud, obnoxious and bullying behavior. I abhor violence against women, but she is one woman that I think needs to realize that people DO have their limits.

Star is a piece of work, but I do think NeNe was intimidated by Star's alpha personality. She's use to being the one running her big mouth and out-talking everyone else. NeNe, you met your match in Star. Dionne-the jury is still out on this one, but so far all I can do is smdh.

NeNe is right on; from the previews I expected that she was just showing out but she clearly starts out the show very respectful toward Star. I don't know who's worse--Star or Dionne (I think Dionne--she's just downright stank, the old pothead, the way she talked about [but not to] Marlee? Hideous). NeNe's not the only one to clash with those two. Star's poor management lost them 30 grand in the first challenge--they won because they had such a wide margin, but not because she managed her team well at all, and she tried to manipulate the next two challenges but failed (and her team lost). And while she may have raised some money for her charity, she sure ain't representing them well. Being good at business does not mean being a ruthless manipulator. Some things are more important than money, like decency and dignity.

I think deep down inside she feels inferior so that s why she acts that way ... Star is educated , knowledgeable and we know we cant say the same for Nene. I dont care for none of them but this is was what i understood. Nene even said in the beginning of the show all the people here are lawyers , and actors , authors and you could feel she had an inferiority complex about it . even though she was trying to say otherwise
