Donald Trump may think everyone who’s ever quit The Celebrity Apprentice or its predecessor The Apprentice regrets it, but NeNe Leakes is here to say it’s not true.
“I don’t regret it,” insists Leake, during an interview airing Wednesday, May 11, on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “I felt very good about it.”
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star explains that she always does “what my gut tells me to do.” And, in this case, she was compelled to walk off the show, because “it was a toxic situation for me,” says Leakes.
Of course, Leakes is referring to her contentious relationship
with fellow contestant Star Jones. The two women butted heads on a few occasions, culminating with Leakes lambasting Jones in front of Trump and a client two weeks ago.
“I needed to get it out,” contends Leakes. “I wish I could have maybe had a different delivery… maybe better word choices, but I’m OK with it. I felt she deserved it. I know everybody in Hollywood knows I’m telling the truth [about Jones].”
