She was the the reason she quit Celebrity Apprentice, but that isn't stopping NeNe Leakes from keeping it cordial with former fellow contestant Star Jones.

"Saying hello costs me nothing – that's free," the Real Housewives of Atlanta star, 43, tells ESSENCE.com. "I'm not so in a rage that I can't say hello and I can't stand in the same room as Star."

The two famously feuded and resorted to name-calling on the NBC show, and their rivalry hit a peak when Leakes unloaded on Jones in front of a client.





But now, months after the show wrapped and John Rich was declared the winner, there's no hard feelings – at least as far as Leakes is concerned. "I don't hate her," she says. "I don't know anybody I hate."

She adds: "Star is Star. I wish her all the best."
