NeNe Leakes Quits, La Toya Jackson and Star Jones Fired From ‘Celebrity Apprentice’

NeNe Leakes Quits, La Toya Jackson and Star Jones Fired From ‘Celebrity Apprentice’

After last week’s dramatic battle between bitter rivals NeNe Leakes and Star Jones, no one thought that the drama could get any hotter. But, after last night’s three-hour episode, fans of Celebrity Apprentice were left stunned when Leakes abruptly quit the show and fellow contestants Jones and La Toya Jackson were given the boot by Donald Trump.

At the beginning of the episode, Leakes attempted to reconcile with Jones, but Star declined to make peace with Leakes, causing Trump to move Leakes to the other team by swapping her with Meatloaf. After the teams were challenged to organize and produce a comedy show, Leakes abruptly walked out on the show.


After her teammates repeatedly tried to contact her, to no avail, Trump finally got in touch with Leakes and attempted to get the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star to return to the show.

“If you quit, this will follow you for the rest of your life. You went this far to just quit at the end is just stupid NeNe,” said Trump to Leakes.


Unfortunately, Trump’s words of encouragement fell on deaf ears as Leakes explained that she felt disrespected by Trump after being removed from her team.

“You have seven talents there, Mr. Trump, and you accommodated Star. That’s not fair. You fell for her b——-,” said Leakes.

Leakes then sent a mass text to the rest of her teammates, explaining that she “can’t stand being around Star” and that she wouldn’t be returning to the show.

In the boardroom, both Leakes and Jones fell victim to Trump’s wrath, with the “Apprentice” host calling out Leakes for her hasty exit.

“To you, NeNe, I say you’re fired. You’re a quitter, and Star Jones kicked your ass whether you like it or not,” said Trump

After team Backbone learned that they’d lost the comedy show challenge, Jackson, who raised the least amount of money for her team, was honorably fired by Trump.

For the second part of the show, the teams were asked to produce a promotional video for OnStar. After team ASAP learned of their eventual loss, things got heated between Jones and Meatloaf as they both pointed the finger at each other for their team’s failure. During their argument, Jones stated that Meatloaf didn’t have the credentials to debate her and took great offense when Meatloaf calling her “sweetie” during their argument.

Despite Jones’ fiery conviction, she couldn’t save herself from getting the axe, and she was fired by Trump.
