Reportedly, the reconfigured show will include “fun, games and entertainment variety.”
DC EXCLUSIVE: Celebrity Apprentice's Star Jones on NeNe Leaks and How She and Rosie O'Donnell Squashed Their FeudBy Jillian Bowe on March 14, 2011
During our recent visit to Sirius XM Out Q's The Morning Jolt with Larry Flick, I got the chance to sit in on Flick and Keith Price's interview with Celebrity Apprentice diva Star Jones. The guys were also cool enough to let me toss a few questions at the barrister into the mix for Daytime Confidential.
On NeNe Leaks' slams in the press:
Daytime Confidential: NeNe [Leakes] has been going around in the press saying that you are jealous, or I should say "upset" that she went to school for 2 years and you went to school for 8 years and you both are on the "same level". Is that accurate?
Star Jones: No no no. We're not on the same level. Lets make that clear. We're on the same show. This is the thing that everyone needs to understand. I didn't cast the show, Mr Trump and Mark Burnett and NBC cast the show. They cast the show based on what they thought would generate good ratings. This was not a show about friendship. It was a show about whether or not people from different backgrounds, experiences and level of stardom could co-exist for a team and then turn it in for an individual competition. I was very clear on my role in this show. 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.
Don't believe the hype... Oprah shot down rumors circulating the web she and Rosie O'Donnell are in a feud over the former "Queen of Nice's" talk show for OWN. The Mighty O used her Twitter account to clear up the allegations and stated:
There's no feud between Rosie and me. We haven't even had a discussion about her new show. I get so sick of people trying to create fights and feuds when women are in business. Don't buy into it.
There ya go.
