Star Jones Responds To Nene Leakes' Attack

Star Jones has broken her silence in response to "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Nene Leakes' recent attack against her.

The two television personalities recently clashed while filming "Celebrity Apprentice," leading Leakes to tell Wendy Williams last week, "I wouldn't spit on Star if she was on fire."

Jones broke her silence exclusively to Life & Style, telling the magazine:

"I did Celebrity Apprentice to raise money and awareness for a charity [the American Heart Association] that has been instrumental in my life, not to see it reduced to a cliché where black women attack one another for publicity's sake...I haven't commented on any of her comments in hopes that she would remember that we all participated in this show for charity and not as a vehicle to promote ourselves and such hatred. I was clearly wrong and I decided to finally respond."
