Claudia Jordan

Real Housewives of Atlanta” star, Claudia Jordan, is busier than ever and loving it. In addition to joining this season of RHOA and her daily radio gig on the Rickey Smiley show, Claudia is about to star in an upcoming movie called, “The Hills.” Proving that NeNe Leakes is not the only working actor among the ladies. How did it all come together for her? Claudia told the Daily Dish,

“Since I started on the show, people reached out to me to come audition for Single Ladies, Power—a bunch of things are starting to come my way.”

Although Claudia has appeared in several TV shows and movies, she describes her acting work as “so sporadic” it never gave her time to focus on the craft. That’s changed now that she has the starring role in the upcoming thriller, alongside industry veterans Omar Gooding and Clifton Powell. The Hills will have you questioning “which side of the law you are on.”

“My costars are all seasoned actors and here I come and I’m a lead,” says Claudia. “It was amazing to work with them and have them say, ‘You did your thing.’”

In the film, Claudia plays Nurse Brady who falls in love with a prison corrections officer. Her love interest’s world is turned upside down when the man who killed his father is sent to his prison and is trying to kill him. “There are a lot of twists and turns,” says Claudia.

So, how did our girl Claudia feel about the loves scenes in the movie? She says they were “a little bit nerve-racking.” Fun fact: Claudia and her on-screen love interest have a bit of history. “He flirts with me sometimes when I see him out so I was like, ‘Oh, he’s into this.’ But it’s cool. That’s what acting is about.”

Tell it to Nene, girl! What would Claudia say to her if she had the chance?

“It’s funny to me, one of the things Nene said in Puerto Rico was, ‘Hollywood ain’t checkin for you’ and I said, ‘but Atlanta is, that’s why you’re so bothered.’ But Hollywood is checking for me.”

And so are we! Congrats to Claudia Jordan. We’ll be seeing you in the movies when “The Hills” opens later this year!

  • italiano bambino

    Moose’s HEAD just blow up

    • Shelly Jones

      Nah…she’s just going to let us know how many roles she’s turned down and how many scripts she’s currently reading.

  • Bad Barbie

    I am surprised that Nene is not saying she was the one that Lee Davis called to do Cookie Lyons too. LMAO!

    Congrats to Claudia!

    • Babson_Chick

      LOL – thank goodness for that – Da Moose as Cookie?!! I want my Empire back!!

      • Bad Barbie

        Me too!!!!!!!

  • honeybunny

    Very happy for her. She’s been in industry a while so it’s nice to see her get a break, even if it’s via the RH franchise… topic but they should consider changing the housewives title. I know its a brand but there are single women on these shows doing very well for themselves

    Claudia – The Great Pretender!!!
    Just read where Claudia thinks Porscha should be fired because all she brought
    to this Season was her being NeNe’s “Yes!” person.
    Meanwhile, all Claudia brought to the show was nodding her head while
    agreeing with “Duh” Cynthia and Kenya.

    • Bad Barbie

      Claudia did set Nene straight. Nene tried it.

      That you., Claudia will soon show her true colors. I don’t think this movie will hit the big screen with a bang. More than likely straight to video.

  • Babson_Chick

    Am betting that Liennethia (whatever) didn’t call and give congrats to Claudia. Good luck to Claudia!! Meanwhile Moose is busy hawking her clothes so that will keep her busy for awhile.

  • TartLemon

    WHAT!??!? No successful producer/actor/writer/director/key grip/lighting, sound engineer/costumer/etc Kenya in the news about Steven Spielberg begging and pleading for her services?

  • itsjustme

    Somehow I think Claudia will show she actually HAS acting chops. Unlike Nene who just plays herself dressed in different costumes.

    • Bad Barbie

      Wasn’t she in House Of Payne for a while?

      • itsjustme

        I’m not really sure. But, I’m guessing her body of work as it relates to acting jobs is just a tad bit more extensive than Ms Leakes is.

    Isn’t that a B movie. not quite prime time!
