Im not the paint expert on here, there are others who are, but I'm presuming....
1.- that you're using the same type, ie latex on latex or oil on oil...?!?! (probably yes!)
and..
2.- how long before you coated the semi with satin? - A day..or a couple..?? (Im thinking the recoat was too soon?!?)

Basically we'll need to know the info jatco asked for, and the exact methods and products used

Normally you wouldn't paint over semi- w/o sanding first
But if the semi- was new paint, it shouldn't have made that much of a difference

Also, exactly what is peeling? Is just the satin peeling or are both paints peeling to the original finish?

Arrow Lets See....

This is what happened. I thought I was going to be able to get away with cheap paint...but after the wall turned hot pink I realized I wasn't. So I went back and got some American Tradition and they gave me Satin finish. I made sure the first paint was dry and I started painting over it and the paint started clumping up on the wall...It wasnt showing the original finish. So can I just prime over that or do I need to use deglosser and then prime.

Was the cheap semi-gloss alkyd/oil base or latex?

If the first coat was oil base, you need to sand off all/most of the satin and apply a solvent based primer. You can then use your satin latex over the primer.
