After Show: Did NeNe Ever Apologize to Star?

NeNe Leakes and Star Jones famously have huge personalities. So when these two ended up on The Celebrity Apprentice together in 2011, they found themselves in one of the fiercest feuds we've ever seen on TV. 

Fast-forward six years, and we still haven't forgotten about this celeb drama. But have NeNe and Star? Well, when Star was asked if NeNe had ever apologized to her for what went down on The Celebrity Apprentice during Sunday night's Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen After Show, she made it seem like the hatchet had been buried long ago with The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum. "Well, we were in competition. She didn't need to apologize to me," Star told Andy Cohen her take on their beef. "I mean, it was television. We were working to try to win money for a charity. I won $175,000 for the American Heart Association. Not a big deal."

In fact, NeNe expressed that there were no hard feelings between her and Star back in 2011. “I don’t hate her, I don’t know anybody that I hate,” she told ESSENCE.com. “Star is Star. I wish her all the best.”

But Star can't say the same for Lisa Rinna, who also appeared on The Celebrity Apprentice with Star and NeNe. Andy mentioned to Star that she and Lisa "were not exactly BFs, either," to which she replied, "I need the tea cup," reaching for a swig of tea. If that's not shade, we don't know what is. 

NeNe's showdown with Star wasn't the first time she came at odds with a former co-host of The View. The RHOA alum experienced an awkward visit to the daytime talk show with some visible tension between her and Joy Behar and Raven-Symoné. Raven later apologized for any shady behavior NeNe may have felt.
