Real Housewives has become synonymous with faux riches and bankruptcy! And some girls are going bust before they ever pretend to play rich on TV! Claudia Jordan just joined Real Housewives Of Atlanta, and she’s already dealt with a shady financial past! Which means that hopefully she has learned from her mistakes and won’t be repeating them! No amount of ‘Red Bottoms’ is worth a day in court!
In 2012 Claudia filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy. The former Celebrity Apprentice cast member admits that bad borrowing, coupled with loss of employment and a divorce put her into that mess. Well at least it wasn’t shoes! Or $100,000 worth of furniture… “I definitely had money and lost it all and got it back, lost it all again and now I’m on the upswing,” Claudia admits. “I was a victim of some predatory loans.”
While a court order dismissed her bankruptcy after one month, Claudia says that her financial pitfall, on top of an annulment and Deal Or No Deal being canceled took her to a very dark place emotionally.
Calling season 7 her “redemption season”Kenya assures us that myths will be dispelled and all the rumors of her s0-called horrible ways will trace back to villains with negative agendas!
“This season shows me in a different light. A lot of the lies that were told about me come to light,” Kenya says. “There were a flurry of [lies]: I’ve been called an alcoholic, I’ve been called bi-polar, I’ve been called a man-stealer— there isn’t a name I have not been called on this show. This season just shows a very different side. And really the truth.”
Will the real Kenya Moore please stand up? I mean here we have personality #265 (one for each day of the year), the forgiving, gracious, and sweet-natured church lady who has Jesus on her side to fix it.
Claudia is not holding back on the drama as she took on veteran NeNe Leakes while Kenya cheered “Yaaaaaas!” from the sidelines. The new ladies have to mark their turf, by digging in the story lines – much like cats scratching in a litter box!
Dropping some hints on this season is Executive Producer for RHOA, Carlos King. And by that I mean parroting the Bravo approved PR spin about how amazing the drama is for season 7. Hey – I’m riveted! Carlos is a big fan of Claudia joining the crew, because duh – she has like zero scruples about acting ratchet, so that makes for excellent TV. Hey – I’m riveted!
Billy Bush and Kit Hoover asked Phaedra about the Mr. Chocolate rumor, the current status of her marriage to Apollo Nida, and that one time when Porsha Williams attacked Kenya Moore at RHOA reunion camp. Spoiler Alert: she is Team Porsha. HAHAHA. Of course she is.
Phaedra claimed the only chocolate she knows comes in the form of a candy bar, adding, “Yum, Yum, Yum.” Though she definitely did not hold back where Kenya is concerned.
This makes absolutely NO sense to me. I mean, there’s a reason Porsha‘s not holding a peach. She’s boring. I remember the word “lackluster” being used to explain her Real Housewives of Atlantademotion. So, she’s too boring to be 1/6 or 1/7 of an ensemble cast, but she has enough going on in her head life to carry her own show? Um, OK. Whose bright idea was this?!?
Claudia Jordan, Kim Kardashian and Porsha Stewart are just a few of the brand new photos we have for you this week.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West struck a pose at the 2014 LACMA Art+Film Gala event over the weekend. I love the color of Kim’s dress and her shoes are cute, too. That’s all I got. Well, I’m also wondering if Kanye only owns two pairs of shoes – the ones he’s wearing and his hiking boots. Also, I’m a little surprised that Nori’s not along, wearing her finest toddler couture because Carter’s and Oshkosh B’Gosh are for peasant children.
There was a ton of speculation about where the Real Housewives Of Atlanta stars had flown off to for their cast trip. We knew it was somewhere tropical and assumed they were in Bali, but it turns out they are on vacation in the Philippines!
We haven’t heard of any drama happening – yet… and judging by the photos it really seems that everyone is bonding and getting along. I imagine this will cause major friction between everyone else and NeNe!
The ladies have been sharing photos of their now not so secret location! You can check them out below!
Finally we have some answers about what is up with Real Housewives Of Atlanta! Like where the hell are the first ladies of peaches. I had assumed Phaedra Parks trapped them in some Southern Belle Training Camp, but alas the beans have been spilled on where they are and why NeNe Leakesskipped the trip!
Rumors were swirling that amid some cryptic tweets about sinking ships, NeNe had quit RHOA mid-season and was not invited on the last-minute cast trip to celebrate Phaedra’s birthday. I assumed NeNe was skipping to prepare for her role in Broadway’s Cinderella, but it was revealed that health reasons caused NeNe to skip the trip. Specifically blood clots that warn against long flights.
