“I wouldn’t spit on Star if she was on fire,” NeNe Leakes (reality show newlyfamous) said about Star Jones.

The two are part of the new Celebrity Apprentice show, so either because of genuine dislike or to sell tickets, Leakes unloaded her thoughts on The Wendy Williams Show.

Well, a week later, Jones no longer thinks that being sniped for unclear reasons should merely be ignored.

“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,” Star told Life & Style. “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.”

The new issue of Life & Style will be on newsstands tomorrow.
