READ MOREBlack Voices: Speaking of Barbara, she had a heart surgery special on ABC recently called 'A Matter of Life and Death' that featured President Bill Clinton, David Letterman, Regis Philbin, Charlie Rose and Robin Williams. You also had heart surgery a year ago, why don't you think she asked you to participate?
Star Jones: Normally I would say: "Now, Jawn, don't try to start anything." However, this time it really isn't about me, but about the new face of heart disease. This disease is no longer your old white man's disease. It is the number one killer of women and the number one killer of African Americans. Heart disease kills more women and blacks than the next four causes of death combined. I had open heart surgery a little less than a year ago, and regardless if it was my "heart story" or someone else's, by not being more inclusive, BW missed a tremendous opportunity to educate, inform and influence the actual people that cardiovascular disease is affecting.
Williams: How did you get along with Star?
Leakes: You know, I'm not feeling Star Jones, I'm sorry! I gave her a chance when I first got there, but Star I'm just going to tell you.....
Williams: Why didin't you get along?
Leakes: Star is a trip; she is very special and I really.... She's special, seriously. I wouldn't spit on Star if she was on fire.
Think I may need to tune in.... Celebrity Apprentice returns March 6. at 9 PM EST on NBC.
