The new season of Celebrity Apprentice wasn't even off the ground before sparks are flying between Real Housewives of Atlanta's NeNe Leakes and Star Jones. While NeNe is famous for starting drama in the ATL, she insists that Star initiated their feud.
"Star tried to sabotage my very first day on set," she tells AOL's Black Voices. "She sabotaged me getting hair and makeup. They were Star's regular hair and makeup people, and Star told them not to do my hair and makeup."
There might be plenty of bad blood between the two, but NeNe quashes any rumors of Star slapping her with a restraining order. "I think that when you get a restraining order they let you know that you have one, don't they? I don't know if that's how it works, but if there is a restraining order out on me, I don't know it," she explains.
As for issues closer to home, she also offers an update on her relationship with husband Gregg. "We no longer live together," she tells the site. "I stay in the house and he moved out and got a place of his own. We are legally separated. We are trying to see if we can do some counseling or something, and if we can't work it out from there, we will finalize the divorce."
In brighter news, NeNe says that despite the on-camera drama, she's enjoyed her Celebrity Apprentice experience, especially working with Donald Trump. "He is very real. I can really appreciate that about somebody. I love when people don't put on airs. I have a lot of respect for him," she says.
Yeah, but what about what's going on up top? "I got to tell you that's his hair, honey," she says. "He does not have on a toupee. He has the different swoop thing going on, but that is his hair."

Hi Nene, sorry to hear about you and gregg, I wish you guys all the best. you had me cracking up on "The Talk" (LOL) @ Star going to school for 100 years. you are a character. that Richard Hatch he is a piece of work, the way he treated David Cassidy was uncalled for that man is old enough his father. so much for respecting your elders. I hope Richard gets eliminated sooner than later. My advice to you about Star be neutral and keep it moving. looking forward to the next episode. BAM!!!!
