STAR JONES & NENE LEAKES APPRENTICE CONFLAGRATION

Double whammy on CELEBRITY APPRENTICE, as STAR JONES was fired and NENE LEAKES quit!.

After Jones and Leakes ongoing animosity continued, Donald Trump shook up the teams, with the new lineups being: Meatloaf, Jones and Marlee Matlin on one team and Leakes, LaToya Jackson, Lil’ John and John Rich on the other.

Despite the shake-up, NeNe abruptly left the show via a text message "I can't stand this environment - it's too negative. I can't stand being around Star."

“To you NeNe,” Trump said, “I say, you’re fired. And you’re a quitter. Star Jones kicked your a** whether you liked it or not.”

Leakes tweeted Sunday, “Your damned if u do & damned if u don't! It's great TV 4 u guys but all the things that were happening there wasn't good 4 me.”

Then, Star's time on the show was cut short, as her team wound up losing -- and her marketing strategy, according to Trump, "missed the mark."

"Star, you're fired," the Donald told the former View star.
