Claudia Jordan Confronts Rumors & Dishes On Showdown with NeNe Leakes

Posted on Jan 23 2015 - 11:56am by BeachSpin


Claudia Jordan has taken center stage during the last couple of episodes of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” She took on the formidable presence and braying mouth of NeNe Leakes during a cast trip to Puerto Rico, and pulled it off while maintaining a classy and cool as a cucumber demeanor. The exchange had viewers applauding, with Claudia verbally slaying Leakes, without breaking a sweat. Claudia is fast becoming a fan favorite, and the popular rookie used her blog to clarify and share her thoughts about the messy incident.

” …Iet’s just say it was a fight of words with lots of bobbing and weaving that was capped off with a verbal scalping! Lots of low points and crass things said, and plenty of one sided yelling. I am proud to say that I maintained a calm and classy demeanor throughout and let my wit, not my volume, do my work against several malicious false statements made by the mother hen.”

Claudia opens up and gets personal by explaining why NeNe’s go-to barb cut her so deep.

“I wanted to know why that was the go-to thing to attack me with — my integrity as a woman. I’ve experienced lots of things in my life, I know a thing or two about sexual abuse, so for me to be called a “whore” and have someone talking about my private parts is for sure a trigger. I don’t want to get into all the ugly details, but let’s just say my life was affected by that word, and it is something that cuts me deep. It seems that has followed me throughout my life. Maybe because I am considered somewhat attractive, the go-to insults are “whore, ho, bitch, and slut.” I remember not being able to have sex for years after what happened to me, and men getting frustrated with me and again using that word to hurt me when that was the furthest thing from the truth.”

Claudia fast forwards to the present, explaining how NeNe’s blurting insults have continued to sting, as she describes the ongoing fallout.

“I have had hundreds of people repeat this to me since NeNe screamed it at me, and it’s not right. And I find it ironic that since then a very false list has been circulating the internet of all these alleged lovers that I’m being linked to, several of which are married to women I am cool with. The timing could not be any more convenient for some. This list is mostly false, not 100% but mostly!” 

Good for Claudia to courageously face down the current rumor mill, and to choose to honestly address such painful allegations.  Many of the women on this show could benefit from following her example!   She closes her blog with an encouraging message to her readers, committing to an ongoing effort towards transparency.

“I will continue to try to be an open book so you all can really get to know me. And in the process I hope some who share some of my struggles can feel better about their own and take comfort in knowing that you do not have to feel like you are alone and that you are damaged goods. There is life after tragedy and there are rainbows after the rain. Trust me, I know! “

  • Claudia is a welcome addition to the cast and by far my fav housewife of the cast! Go Claudia!!

  • cait

    That Leaky Noodle Head is a disgrace to womankind ! She must have some deep, dark secrets in her closet to keep diverting lies onto other people !

  • Chloe

    Team Claudia here. She exudes beauty, brains and class. So happy Bravo snatched Porsha’s peach and awarded it to someone very deserving.

  • Marsbars09

    With all the ugly things that Nene said to Claudia in Puerto Rico, Claudia never addressed the half-breed comment. I think that is just as hurtful as Nene calling her a whore.

  • Birdie

    Go Claudia…smarts and truth are the best combo!

    I absolutely adore this woman! I don’t care what’s been said about her. She has been so sweet and humble on social media which is something most modern day celebrities lack! Both Nene and Phaedra are two ugly hens who go for the gutter and below the belt with their insults to other women. Only hoodrats praise this beastly and insecure behavior. Just because you are insecure and threatened by beautiful women, you never know what that person has gone through. I really hope the Bravo staff is paying attention to the negative feedback they’re getting this season from reasonable viewers. If Bravo doesn’t get rid of Nene, Phaedra, and Porsha this show will get cancelled eventually. They may be the fan favorites because of their hood rat behavior, but millions will stop tuning in. I know I will. Claudia, Kenya, Cynthia, and Demetria are the only ones I care about anyway.

    Y’all check out that thot Porsha’s blog. She really thinks Claudia and Kenya are jealous of her extremely low IQ and long chin!

    I love Claudia! she is a strong woman and worked hard for all her accomplishments, and not on her back OR A POLE LIKE SOME FOLKS. He only crime was to speak against and stand up for herself against that awful Moose/bully/HairHatWearingThugNene. I hope she bears up because she has LOTS OF LOYAL FANS who will be here when RHOA is long gone.
    #Stay Strong Lady.

    The only thing that bothers me about Claudia is if you make make nasty comments they are coming back to you. She needs to kick Bailey to curb. Cynthia and Kenya are using her.

  • BuckJohnson

    Claudia is being set up for the reunion, this woman won’t know what hit her.

    • Trippinhhard

      Thank you again—that list of men was out in 2010—NayNay had nothing to do with that..
      Tiny was her friend— anyway it will be a showdown

    Claudia is turning out to be the best addition ever. Really going toe to toe with Ne-Ne & making sure that her voice is heard over the obnoxious mouthpiece that Ne-Ne turns into when confronted with the truth.
    While Porsha is an easy target she didn’t really blow her up ish nearly as bad as she could have. She held back. Her TH was another thing though.
    That was an Underground Rail-READ Gurrlll!LOL!

  • misstc

    Thank you Bravo, for bringing a breath of fresh air and a formable intelligence & class called Claudia. It makes the hoodrats really stand out in their ignorance.

  • Mustang

    It’s true. ShaNene is not correct, just LOUD. Truth and integrity will always triumph over mess and volume. I simply ask that Claudia not lower herself to the level of her castmates, all of whom seem to be digging deeper into the trashy abyss.
