Trump asks Star if she'd rather have NeNe or Hope on her team going forward. Star says it depends on if she and NeNe could resolve the tension, because she feels really bad that NeNe despises her. NeNe acts totally innocent: "I despise you? When did that start?" Uh, at the beginning of this episode? Star changes the word "despise" to "doesn't trust me." NeNe starts lecturing Star on loyalty and decency. Ivanka breaks in, though, to tell Star that her answer implies that Hope is less talented, and it's a temperamental issue with NeNe. NeNe talks all over Ivanka and doesn't let Star answer, saying that it's only a temperamental issue because she's the only one of these girls who will stand up to Star Jones, which she swears she'll continue to do as long as Star's mean, malicious, and backstabbing. She tells Star to sit there and continue to try to look innocent, when they all know that she is not.
Trump asks Marlee what she thinks of all this. She says that sometimes NeNe scares her. NeNe asks when that started, and Marlee says yesterday morning. Trump tells Marlee she didn't need to be scared, but Star maybe should have been, since NeNe's a big, tough lady. NeNe says she's just verbal, not physical. Trump and Ivanka point out that towering over her and walking over to her is a physical act of dominance. NeNe says she wanted to let Star know that she can scare the rest of these girls, but she doesn't scare her. Trump gets back to Marlee and asks if she respects NeNe. Marlee says she has the utmost respect for NeNe, who she likes and is friends with. She thinks she's funny, straightforward, and honest. She says NeNe's not violent, but she's verbally abusive at times. Trump says Star can handle herself. But then he says he's known Star a long time and has never seen her scared, but she was scared yesterday morning. Star says she wasn't scared. She was afraid she wouldn't be able to handle herself with the dignity she wants in this business situation. NeNe asks if she calls being backstabbing "dignity." Star says she doesn't consider herself to be backstabbing. NeNe: "And that's dignity." Then NeNe asks Star why her reputation is the way it is. Trump wonders what that means. NeNe says that most people she runs into don't like Star. Trump thinks that's pretty tough, and he thinks Star has a great reputation, which is why she's here. He says they all have great reputations, and tries to lighten the mood by saying he's the only one with a bad reputation.
