So apparently loud mouth NeNe Leakes is a quitter. Whoodathunkit? 😕
During last night’s Celebrity Apprentice (which I refuse to watch on the grounds that I can’t stand Donald Trump), Leakes reportedly walked out without nary a word to her teammates!
Leakes, 41, left her team which consisted of John Rich, Lil Jon and La Toya Jackson (who was brought back after being fired a few weeks ago) high and dry without an explanation.
Lil Jon and NeNe’s bff La Toya both tried to reach her by phone with no success. Later, Trump even dialed her up himself…
“I’ve never called anybody but I’m calling you because I think you have great ability,”
Trump, 64, told Leakes in a last-ditch effort to keep her around. “If you quit, it’s going to follow you for the rest of your life. For you to quit at the end is stupid.”
Well “stupid” is as “stupid” does…. because she definitely didn’t come back! Quitting way before she got a chance to hear Trump yell,”You’re Fired!”
NeNe’s surprising explanation of why she chose to walk out on her charity and her teammates below:
In response to Trump’s call, NeNe angrily replied:
YOU accommodated Star. You have SEVEN talents that are still here. You just can’t accommodate her. That’s not fair!
In the end, the one person who NeNe claims was manipulative and evil RAN HER OFF THE SHOW! NeNe further explained:
I really feel that Star got her way. Mr. Trump bought into her bullsh*t. I don’t have to stay with BS to raise money for my charity.
The best thing for me to do is leave.
I don’t get it. I really don’t.
Especially because of Star Jone’s reaction to all the drama. If you recall, after NeNe went off on Star last week, Star politely declined to “engage”.
[Sidebar: I don’t even care to much for Ms. Jones but I applaud her decision not to participate in NeNe’s buffoonery… ]
Star discussed their altercation on Ellen where she compared Leakes to an “uncaged animal”…
“I was thinking, ‘I need to keep calm.’ Because, not for nothing Ellen, but when you’re confronted in the wild with an uncaged animal, you’re supposed to retreat,” Jones said.
“No, with a bear, you’re supposed to appear bigger. You’re supposed to get larger,” said Ellen DeGeneres.
“If you can tell me how I can get bigger than that, I’ve got money for you,” said Jones.
“I knew that [Leakes] had been violent and volatile in the past,” continued Jones. “And, so, I just wasn’t going to be in that situation because it really could have escalated into something that became dangerous.”
I guess that explains the bodyguards Star hired during her stint on the show.
I’m not that surprised to find out that the Real “Housewife” of Atlanta is a “REAL” coward because I’ve always found that most confrontational people can’t handle a battle of the brains.
If you don’t engage in the BS, they normally back off because the only way they know how to fight is to battle your emotions. When you show none… the battle is over.
Soak that in for a minute.
In related news, all the black women are gone from Celebrity Apprentice. La Toya Jackson was fired (again) and Star Jones failed her task and was let go as well.
Looks like Lil Jon might go all the way for the win….
Wish I could watch.
