It is never a dull moment when Star Jones is in the building! Ms. Jones stopped by The Wendy Williams Show to discuss her appearance on Celebrity Apprentice and her new book, Satan's Sisters. As usual of late, the topic of conversation went to The Real Housewives of Atlanta's NeNe Leakes trash-talking Jones in the media. Jones quipped to Williams, "Did I sleep with her, and forget to call the next day"? Watch her fire back at Leakes after the jump! READ MORE
READ MOREBlack Voices: Speaking of Barbara, she had a heart surgery special on ABC recently called 'A Matter of Life and Death' that featured President Bill Clinton, David Letterman, Regis Philbin, Charlie Rose and Robin Williams. You also had heart surgery a year ago, why don't you think she asked you to participate?
Star Jones: Normally I would say: "Now, Jawn, don't try to start anything." However, this time it really isn't about me, but about the new face of heart disease. This disease is no longer your old white man's disease. It is the number one killer of women and the number one killer of African Americans. Heart disease kills more women and blacks than the next four causes of death combined. I had open heart surgery a little less than a year ago, and regardless if it was my "heart story" or someone else's, by not being more inclusive, BW missed a tremendous opportunity to educate, inform and influence the actual people that cardiovascular disease is affecting.
Williams: How did you get along with Star?
Leakes: You know, I'm not feeling Star Jones, I'm sorry! I gave her a chance when I first got there, but Star I'm just going to tell you.....
Williams: Why didin't you get along?
Leakes: Star is a trip; she is very special and I really.... She's special, seriously. I wouldn't spit on Star if she was on fire.
Think I may need to tune in.... Celebrity Apprentice returns March 6. at 9 PM EST on NBC.

DC #583: Soap Scribe-turned-Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Showrunner Dave Rupel Talks GL's Last Days and Previews Beverly Hills "Wives"!By Daytime Confidential on October 13, 2010
He was with CBS Daytime's embattled soap opera Guiding Light as a writer, up until the bittersweet end. He even walked the picket lines as a Strike Captain for the sudser, as well as ABC Daytime's General Hospital, during the 2007 Writers Strike. Now Dave Rupel is back this week with the premiere of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the latest in Bravo's line of successful docusoaps. Rupel, who serves as an executive producer and showrunner on the new series, premiering Thursday Oct. 14 (check your local listings), chats with Daytime Confidential about what it was like at GL during those lean, final years.
He shares his thoughts on the now-infamous change of Guiding Light's production model. Was it a network-mandated decision or did Guiding Light's last executive producer Ellen Wheeler make the call? Speaking of Wheeler, what did Rupel think of his experience working with the controversial actress-turned-producer?
Rupel also speaks out on why so many fans of continuing drama are now getting their "soap fix" from reality television. The man who helped create the flagship The Real Housewives of Orange County, and worked on such shows as Temptation Island and Big Brother U.K., as well as penning scripts for General Hospital, offers insight soap fans aren't generally privy to. He also provides soap opera writers with a viable option for future employment, as more and more reality producers look to soap writers. Then he takes us into the world of what could be the most glamorous Real Housewives ever! It's an interview soap fans and reality lovers alike won't wanna miss.
