Star Jones Says NeNe Is An Embarrassment To Black Women Everywhere

- By Bossip Staff

Lawd. We might have to get Maya Angelou to come in and Al Sharpton this thing up.

Star Jones recently sat down for an interview with And once again, asked about NeNe’s out of pocket a**, Star stayed classy… and said what every Black woman has been saying since it became CNN-level news that NeNe wouldn’t put a Star bonfire out with a spit ball.

The show is getting a ton of pre-press mainly because Nene Leakes has been doing interviews about you. What went wrong with you and NeNe?
This actually saddens me. Black women trashing other black women all for the sake of personal aggrandizement. When the cast was first announced, I was both excited and concerned. Excited that this was going to be the most diverse cast in prime-time reality programming and concerned because the media immediately started the drumroll of “can this many black women get along?” The four of us actually chatted about the unique opportunity we had to influence the perception of black women and the way we interact. We each brought something different to the show, so I had hoped we could avoid falling into the typical “snake charmer in your face loud bombastic black woman” stereotypical box that was expected. Some of us were more successful at our quest than others. I knew I wanted to approach the game intelligently, professionally and strategically, while keeping in mind my true purpose for being there – winning money for my charity.

You have a lot of black female friends – Vanessa Bell Calloway, Natalie Cole and Holly Robinson Peete to name a few. Were you surprised at Nene’s personal attack on you and the implications that you don’t gel with other black women?
Who are you telling! You know my girlfriend gatherings are legendary! But you’ll see this season on the show, at some point Nene attacked all the black women on the show and scared the other women to death with her aggressive approach. But to be fair, it is an approach that works for her kind of television interaction, as evidenced by the great ratings they generate. But it isn’t an approach that works in the professional environment and it isn’t an approach that most sisters use in interacting with each other. I would hope, as she becomes more exposed to a variety of professional situations, she will tone down the vitriolic emotional reactions and learn to express herself in manner that is more reflective of the majority of black women in America.

Someone please tell NeNe there’s no need to “respond.” Just take the L.

      Well, i don’t agree. Ne-Ne does not represent black women as a whole. Ne-Ne represents herself as a black woman. I’m tired of people generalizing and grouping us together as if we are not individuals. Ne-Ne can show her butt cheeks as far as I’m concern ’cause I, as a black woman, am NOTHING like her.

    • DollBaby1o1

      NeNe shoulda just smacked her!

      Whateva Star.

      Spoken by someone who named themselves after a cumguzzlin intern. Interesting….

  • 1king

    @ black women
    At the end of the day no man wants a woman with a mouth bigger than her azz. Nene acts like an ape. She goin all the way to the bank but you are not. She is why black women all over the world are disrespected. When did not acting crazy become so bad. This is so sad that people on here agree with the way she acts. Don’t you know the tv shapes people realities for them. People have never met a black person but will use her to identify all of y’all. As her situation gets better yours gets worse. People like her do a disservice to black people everywhere. But y’all don’t care cause she makin money. What dummies.

      Well said.

  • darealwifey

    I support NeNe as she strives to make a name for herself, and become a completely self-sufficient woman without a husband. BUT! NeNe Leakes has to stop being at war with the world!!! She is the stereotypical “angry black woman.” She is pissed off at the world…LITERALLY. She’s decided she won’t take any more “stuff,” but doesn’t realize that we ALL deal with “stuff.” She needs to let go of her past hurts, let go of her attitude, and move on.

  • Renee the truth

    Please I agree w|Star!! For those of you saying NeNe keeping it Real that’s DUMB!! Because if keeping it real running your mouth out of term & being ignorant I must have fell asleep on that lesson in morals and decorum

  • Troi Dustin

    Wait a minute?? Nene should “learn to express herself in manner that is more reflective of the majority of black women in America.” I’m sorry but since when are we required to behave the way most people behave? And who’s to say how most people behave. Do you, Nene. Star, ho3 sit down!

  • aceejm

    well said Star! thats what an education will do for you! Nene take notes! Ha!

  • neen-o


    Chile please… you came on the scene extremely obese and unhappy with the media’s portrayal of you as a black woman. So YOU LIED at 1st about ur surgery, PIMPED vendors for your SHAM marriage to a ghey man…got bitter with Barbara Walters and showed how “black women” react to failure. Now you want to bash another black woman for being aggressive in nature and outspoken? HO SIT ALL THE WAY DOWN!! Donald Trump is laughing all the way to the bank bc of BOTH black women in this situation.

    This saddens me, but I will surely tune in to the Apprentice to make my own opinion of what they show. Modern day minstrel shows aren’t as easy to detect, but are alive and well SMH

  • Simply Honee

    Amen! And it’s sad that people cosign NeNe’s foolishness b/c they’re so addicted to drama. Junk in, junk out.

  • islandgirl

    HOe sit down!!! @ star

  • 1king

    What you believe does not really matter. The white people that run this country the ones that control the finances believe this crap. That is why no one wants to do business with black people here and abroad. This is all propaganda that is used againt black people even before you open your mouth. This why we can’t get a fair deal. This makes discrimination reasonable when dealing with black people you have never met.

  • Curious1 aka 2 My Hata's: My Middle Fingers Salute Ya


  • The real Monica Lewinskii

    Ummmm I dont know what rock you just climbed up from under but that is the image that has followed us through history on tv u always see an ignorant emotional black woman on tv where have u been they always show ghetto ppl on tv that is why the perception of us throughout the world is skewed because of the images that are shown on tv

  • Brother John

    Never mind the white folks overlooking black folks accomplishments over minor shyt because a lot of black women are just as guilty of the same shyt themselves.

    There should be an IQ test before selling anyone a laptop, computer, phone or any other item that connects them to the internet because you my dear are an idiot…you miss the bigger picture, how the white media elevates black ignorance while suppressing its brilliance. Get some knowledge about things outside your hood sweetie because you sound so intellectually limited…

  • Yvette

    Star’s comment were eloquent; however, she was the ORIGINAL NENE. She was loud mouthed and irritated all those white folks at The View that’s why she was out of a job. Now I do agree that Nene may need to calm down her “emotional” rants, but to me Nene can do no wrong. She calls it like she sees it and I adore her for that.

  • Curious1 aka 2 My Hata's: My Middle Fingers Salute Ya


  • Uhh Yeah Ok

    At the end of the day you only have yourself to thank. What NeNe does on TV should have no impact on an indivdual. You prove who you are everyday through YOUR actions. Don’t believe the hype- professionals deal with you on your own merit.

  • jmagic

    i would need a calculator to count the number of black women that are disgraces,not just one big nose angry black butt…..Kenya Moore and nia long are goddesses and monique and every bytch on any reality tv show are disgraces

  • schoolteacher7

    I personally think it is all hype for ratings. I believe when the cameras are off, NeNe Leakes is a totally different person. She has discovered what works for her, and people are tuning in. That’s why Trump called her. We are the reason she’s out here, otherwise we wouldn’t know who she is. We’ve been tuning in like evryone else has. It HAS to be an act.
