Star Jones Compares NeNe Leakes to a Wild Animal

Originally posted 05/03/2011 08:45AM

The last time the Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes sat down to talk with Ellen DeGeneres, she called fellow Celebrity Apprentice contestant Star Jones "a disaster." After Sunday night's vicious spat between the contestants, Jones appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show – and she didn't miss her chance to strike back.

"What were you thinking when NeNe was going off like that?" DeGeneres asks Jones in an episode airing Tuesday.

"I was thinking my grandmother is going to watch this," Jones says. "I was thinking I need to keep calm."

She also couldn't resist comparing her costar to a feral animal. "When you're confronted in the wild with an un-caged animal you're supposed to retreat," Jones says. "You're not supposed to attack."

Bret Michaels Has Winning Advice for Celebrity Apprentice Contestants

Originally posted 03/13/2011 06:10PM

After all the battles Bret Michaels has fought over the past 12 months, he still ranks winning Celebrity Apprentice as "one the toughest things I've ever done emotionally and physically, because they drain you down to find who the winner is." So now he has some expert advice for the show's remaining hopefuls.

"You got to work hard, delegate and be able to perform on a fume," says Michaels, who turns 48 March 15. "Because you don't eat a whole lot and you don't sleep a whole lot, and that's the truth."

He adds: "Listen to what Donald Trump and the task assigners are asking you to do. And you better be good at rallying your team, even when they don't like you or believe in you. Eventually, you're going to be facing the same people you worked with."

Celebrity Apprentice kicked off its fourth season Sunday, and while the challenge was to make pizza, the teammates spent more time making enemies.

Star Jones took the lead among the women, and rubbed people the wrong way by letting the rest of the team do prep work in the kitchen while she focused on the graphics for their advertising.

But when the group failed to deliver pizzas for charity, and lost out on a donation worth $35,000, the sniping began.
