'The Rosie Show': NeNe Leakes Thinks Star Jones Was Manipulative And Sneaky On 'Apprentice' (VIDEO)

NeNe Leakes famously tried to quit "Celebrity Apprentice," only to be fired by Donald Trump anyway. She talked about her experiences on that show, and particularly her feud with Star Jones, on "The Rosie Show" (Weeknights, 7 p.m. EST on OWN).

Describing her first day arriving to film the show, Leakes said of Jones, "She was standing back and looking at me like, 'I don't like reality stars.'"

"What you guys don't know, is Star and I went to dinners together." Leakes said. The women apparently bonded after a medical incident. "Every night after shows we would go to dinner. We double-dated."

But Leakes' take on all of that now, is that Jones was being disingenuous in their new friendship. "She was very sneaky," she said. "She was getting around me to see how I really was so that she could like get me. And when I realized how manipulative she was, it set me so off."

So much so, that the growing tension between the women was one of the reasons Leakes left the show. As for making amends with Jones, Leakes says she has no interest in that, but also that she doesn't hold a grudge.

NeNe Leakes can be seen on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," Sunday nights at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo. Catch "The Rosie Show" weeknights at 7 p.m. EST on OWN.
