Reality star NeNe Leakes is firing back after she quit “The Celebrity Apprentice,” claiming that Donald Trump “was disrespecting me.”. The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star was the third contestant to leave the show during Sunday’s episode, after singer La Toya Jackson and television personality Star Jones were fired. “I call my own shots in life, I do whatever I feel, and when my gut tells me to do something, I follow my gut feeling,” Leakes told “Access Hollywood” on Monday.
During Sunday’s drama-filled episode, Leakes walked off after 64-year-old Trump moved her to the men’s team so she would no longer have to work with arch nemesis Star Jones, but the move left Leakes’ new team frantically trying to find their team member.
But when her teammates, rapper Lil John and country singer John Rich called Trump to let him know what was happening, he decided to dial her up himself.
“I’ve never called anybody but I’m calling you because I think you have great ability,” he told Leakes during the show. “If you quit, it’s going to follow you for the rest of your life. For you to quit at the end is stupid.”
But Leakes didn’t care, and decided to leave anyway.
“I felt like it was a toxic situation for me and for my own sanity and health reasons and everything else, I decided to leave the show,” Leakes said. “”I felt he was disrespecting me. I’d rather be around people who love and care for me. I don’t want to be in toxic situations, So, I decided to say, ‘Bye,’ because I don’t think you have to be backstabbing and lying and manipulative to raise money for a charity… we’re not on ‘Survivor!’”
Later on in the boardroom, an upset Trump launched into an epic tirade about her departure.
“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.”
But don’t think this will be the end of Leakes, there’s more to come of the sassy reality star on the next season of “Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
“We’re shooting our fourth season,” she said. “We’ve been shooting for about three weeks.”
“The Celebrity Apprentice” airs on Sundays on NBC.
Donald Trump Talks New Recession-Friendly Season Of “The Apprentice”. Times are very different than when “The Apprentice” first aired in 2004. Nearly everyone was hit hard by the economy. Even host Donald Trump, who experienced sluggish sales for his Trump Tower in Chicago and failed to pay a $40 million loan, and whose Trump Entertainment Resorts filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy last year. Cut to 2010 and “The Apprentice” is suddenly a very different show. All of the contestants have been adversely affected by the economy. Among them, recent college graduates having zero luck in the job market, 40-year-old former breadwinners who recently lost their jobs, and even a truck driver with a Masters in Engineering. “We have people who went to the best schools and who don’t have a job and people who once had really good jobs,” Trump told our source. “In one case, someone who has five kids and now has zero income coming in. It’s both sad and educational. Some were really high flyers and now they’re down and out.” “We weren’t looking for people who were feeling sorry for themselves, but the common factor in the casting of the show was people who wanted to fight back,” said show creator Mark Burnett. The prize also seems more lucrative than ever, with the winning contestant landing a job in the Trump Organization with a six-figure salary. The opportunities for the remaining 15 are endless as well, with Project Managers earning one-on-one interviews with top executives and corporate headhunters. The past few years, Trump has been busy with the hit “Celebrity Apprentice” spin-off, which scored charity wins for Bret Michaels, Joan Rivers, and “America’s Got Talent” judge and Larry King replacement Piers Morgan. But the new season of “The Apprentice” gives a much more real glimpse at corporate America today, reflective of the current state of the world and thereby more relevant than ever. It’s the first non-celebrity “Apprentice” since 2007 and, like most of its contestants, the show is also looking for a fresh start. “We have had so many requests from so many people because of the times, because obviously the country is not doing well and economic times are not good,” Trump told our source. “When we first started ‘The Apprentice,’ it was a big hit, but that was also in a different world. Times were booming. Now times are the opposite of booming. So many people wanted to see this show reflective of the current times and that’s what we’ve done.” “The Apprentice” airs Thursdays at 10pm ET/PT on NBC.
Donald Trump Offers Cash Deal For NYC Mosque. Donald Trump wants to end the controversial NYC mosque that will be built near Ground Zero by offering to buy the property. The real estate mogul and “Apprentice” star says he has offered the owners the full amount they paid the property for plus 25 percent. In exchange for his offer, he asks that the mosque be built at least five blocks from the WTC site, according to our source. And while Trump doesn’t think it was a good business deal, he is doing it because “it will end a very serious, inflammatory, and highly divisive situation that is destined, in my opinion, to only get worse.” However, the lawyer for the investor in the real estate partner that controls the site doesn’t think it’s a sincere offer. He told our source that Trump’s offer is “just a cheap attempt to get publicity and get in the limelight
