Star Jones has struck back at Nene Leakes over comments that the Real Housewives of Atlanta star made about her in the press.

Appearing on The Wendy Williams Show, Leakes recently confessed that she is "not feeling" Jones after working with her on Celebrity Apprentice and "wouldn't spit on [her] if she was on fire".

In a statement to Life & Style, The View host Jones said: "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.

"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."
