NeNe

QUITS 'Celeb Apprentice' -- Trump Furious!

5/9/2011 4:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

She stood what she could stand ... and last night, NeNe Leakes couldn't stand Star Jones anymore ... and QUIT "Celebrity Apprentice."

It all hit the fan when Donald Trump reordered the teams on the show ... after Star told The Donald she couldn't work with her arch-enemy NeNe anymore.

An obviously FURIOUS Leakes stormed off to her hotel and told Trump, "You can't just accommodate her ... that's not fair."

NeNe then explained, "Mr. Trump bought into her bulls**t and i dont have to stay here and put up with BS to raise money for my charity. The best thing for me to do is just walk away."

Later in the show, Trump added, "The fact is she left ... she quit, she gave up. To you, NeNe, I say, you're fired. And you’re a quitter. And Star Jones kicked your ass whether you like it or not."

Star Jones didn't get booted fast enough......."The View" - GONE, "Her Marriage" - GONE, "Celebrity Apprentice" - GONE. The others appeared to have been able to work with her because they put up with her mouth.......they didn't have any balls to stand up to her. She was hateful, evil, condescending and not as bright as she thought she was. If you are going to ride a broom, at least make sure you know what you are doing.

Thank you NeNe! You did the right thing and if the rest of the members had any sense--they would walk off too with all the crazy and disrespectful nonsense coming from Trump these days. I am so glad you walked off--now--the rest of you--YOUR TURN!!!!

Donald CHUMP you need to give it up. NeNe Leakes good for you. Star Jones is a double crossing, back stabbing, ass kissing nobody looking for a minute of fame. Star and Chump deserve each other.

Star Jones and Dionne Warwick are arrogant, mean, hateful, and in their minds, above everyone else, individuals. I am glad they are both gone, finally! They've been full of themselves for years. They are no better than anyone else.

AT LEAST STAR JONES HAS SOME CLASS, SOMETHING NENE LEAKES WILL NEVER HAVE. SHE IS NOTHING BUT A BULLY,QUITTER AND FORMER STRIPPER. SHE ALSO MADE A FOOL OF HERSELF ON RHOA WITH THE WAY SHE TALKED TO KIM AND PHADREA. I'M NOT A BIG FAN OF
STAR OR KIM BUT A CLASSY LADY DOES NOT SPEAK TO PEOPLE LIKE SHE DOES. ONE WORD COMES TO MIND (TRASH)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rumours are that Donald Trump is only capable of doing his wife if she wears the custom-made Donald Trump-Mask he had made for her. This peculiar habit replaces his earlier addiction which ended tragically, auto******** in front of his mirror.

I really enjoy Celebrity Apprentice, but the thought of Trump being President makes me cringe! The deploreable crudeness of Star & Nene along with Dione were and always will be disgusting to say the least. Richard hatch & Lisa Rinna fired way too early. (sent on a job to late by "no it all Star Jones".
Jose Canseco a lazy unlikable loser, is in reality a coward. Hope & Nina never did anything but fly under the radar and take up space. David Cassidy was treated badly by Richard Hatch, but was way out of his league and not strong enough to ever make it any farther regardless. Gary Busey does have some genuis within himself..but is an out of control and unmanagable individual...always & in all ways. Marley went in with a good chance of winning but blew it by trusting Star...she was right to trust Meat Loaf but weak in doin so. Latoya make have a wee little voice, but she was far better than I had at first given her credit for...she is no dummy and had more balls that most everyone thought. Meat Loaf is really brilliant and multi-talented but his emotions will cost him to lose. It will be either him or Marley to leave next but I am hoping he can be in the final 3 along with John Rich & Lil' Jon.
These 3 have relly impressed me with their abilities and talents and willingness to get their assigbments done and done well. Richard hatch could have proven to be a strong player if he had the ability to draw in money for the charities and keep his attitude under control (I think he was aware of this, and managed to do so except for the first challange). John Rich & lil' Jon are both amazing and both are equally deserving to win. Donald Tump had better give up his asinine run for the Presidency and keep his "day job(s)" The world enjoys watching a train wreck about to happen, so somewhere Nene the "rude, crude bully..will show up on our tvs every so oftwen...but she will NEVER make it any bigger than she did with the Atlanta Houswives where she starred as a loud mouth crude ghetto like bully. Star Jones has not been able to keep any job since the view, and it blatently clear as to why that is...no matter her education, and talents...she is truly washed up and will remain that way...no one could ever work with her for longbecause of her inflated ego. Dione has been a great talent in the past...but alas, she is now nothing more than a ego inflated has been...same with Canseco and Casssidy.

Somebody must have told NeNe and Star that they weren't washed up wannabes. Star is extremely condescending. She has to realize that she's gone from prime time to D-list reality star. NeNe is an ex-stripper and a disgrace to all of us women in Atlanta. How she thinks somebody would want to advance her career with all that attitude is a joke!!

team nene    

NeNe ran the show. NeNe brought trump an audience he never would've gotten without her. i have never watched the apprentice until now. yes, nene may have a mouth on her, but she is genuinely a loud person. she doesnt pretend to be anything but loud. if you have enough balls to talk reckless to a 6foot woman with a potty mouth, well then you get what you asked for. star acts like her degree makes her better than the next man. she told meat that she wouldnt argue with him unless he had the same credentials she has. biznitch pulleeze. nene didnt need a juris doctor to perform open heart surgery on star's ego. she shredded the woman and then quit when trump pacified her. not a loser but a true champion --deciding not to fight when the opponent is from a lower weight class. that's like a 12yr old fighting a 4yr old. pathetic. nene did right. she learned to argue in the streets and star learned to argue in class with rules and objections and the like. there's no 403 balancing test with nene. being unfairly prejudicial didnt save star's ass from that tongue lashing she got. big ups nene leakes. team nene all the way. (btw...i actually do have star's credentials and i'd eat her alive, too)
