Rumor Mill: NBC Legal Department Involved in Star Jones/Lisa Rinna Dispute
In the most recent episode that aired last night, NeNe Leakes grew tired of Lisa’s whining and admitted that they were trying to oust her from the show by choosing her as project manager:
“We choose Lisa because we didn’t think she would handle it, and it’s best to get her out now.”
Now Popeater.com is reporting that the feud between Lisa Rinna and one of the other co-stars, Star Jones, was so serious that NBC’s legal department had to step in!
According to Popeater:
“Since the show wrapped, there’s been no love lost between Star and Lisa,” one of the contestants tells me. “I’m told that Mark Burnett Productions and the Trump Organization had to step in and get the network involved during Lisa’s short stint on the show. Both sides aren’t talking about what sparked legal’s attention.
Lisa was tasked with spearheading the creation of a children’s book, but she soon had to defuse a battle between Marlee Matlin and Dionne Warwick. Throughout it all, she and Star butted heads.
“Lisa feels betrayed by Star and Dionne Warwick and has never in her life been exposed to such a negative environment,” a friend of Lisa tells me. “She comes from a place of love and refuses to fight dirty even if that means she would not win. To be honest, she’s happy it’s all over and has moved on.”
