Puerto Rico is apparently the place to go if you’re a Real Housewife with a vendetta who is looking to start a fight. Tonight the ladies of Real Housewives Of Atlanta take their first of the cast trips as the venture to Puerto Rico. Before all that Claudia Jordan gives us background on her relationship with NeNe Leakes – which will be the basis of their verbal discourse.
The drama between Claudia and NeNe came to a head (see what I did there!) at Kandi’s Bedroom Kandi party, and escalated from there.
Claudia reveals that NeNe is simply judging her based on assumptions and gives backgrounds for how they met in the first place (hint: it was twitter. And Charles Grant). It turns out that despite NeNe saying she merely knew Claudia, they were actually friends who socialized together so imagine Claudia’s surprise to be completely ignored by NeNe at Kandi’s party.

It all started when Claudia, NOT a RHOA fan who was totally NOT following NeNe on twitter, got a tweet from Ms. Leakes. “One day I got a tweet to follow her back, because she was following me and wanted to talk to me about something. 2009 was a good year for me — I was on Celebrity Apprentice (the first of my 2 times on the show), and I also was hired by Donald Trump and NBC to co-host the Miss Universe Pageant (500 million viewers give or take.) So times were good!”
“When I followed back I got a direct message that NeNe wanted me to take her place hosting an event in Atlanta that she was scheduled to do, but for some reason could no longer be seen at for some reason. The event was for the New Orleans Saints Football player Charles Grant,” Claudia explains.
I had a free weekend and my best friend Auta lived in Atlanta, so I thought it was a win-win situation. I accepted the gig and helped NeNe off the hook.”

“When I got to Atlanta I went to a pool party at the W Hotel and met NeNe in person for the first time. We took a group photo by the pool and chatted and she was sweet and very complimentary. I wondered why she would give up the hosting gig, but still was in town — but hey that was none of my business,” Claudia wonders.
“The event went off without a hitch and was very classy and nice, and NeNe seemed very relieved to have been able to provide a substitute host for whatever reason she had to bow out of the affair,” note Claudia’s choice of word – “affair” – there is a rumor that NeNe cheated on Gregg with Charles.
“That wasn’t the only time we came in contact — she’s tweeted me kind things, and I’ve tweeted her words of support with her projects, as well as interviewed her on the red carpet, seen her, and took pictures together at events,” Claudia shares.
“Sadly I’m not really surprised by NeNe’s ugly demeanor. This is a person that I, along with the rest of the world, have watched transform from the fun underdog to the mean girl, who now seems to go out of her way to be rude,” Claudia laments. “So THIS was the reason for my confusion when we were at Kandi’s house over why she was so dismissive with me.”
“Then to tell Porsha that I’m in some way thirsty? Hmmm after seeing how all this unfolded, the only thing I’m thirsty for is the real TEA about why she gave up this gig, because we all know Ms. Leakes is about her coins!” Claudia hints.
Then Claudia throws some shade. “And NeNe I heard you loud and clear — you said you have nice feet and skin. Hey, you got me on the feet thing (mine are hideous) but please explain to me your definition of “good skin.” YIKES! #ByePores”
“LET ME BE CLEAR: I have never implied that NeNe and I were friends, nor was I ever interested in pursuing a friendship,” Claudia continues. “Quite frankly outside of her hustle, I really don’t see any redeeming qualities about her personality that would make me want to spend time with her. The short time I have spent with her these last few months were draining.”
Well, someone is not hiding how she really feels – sentiments that continued beach-side in Puerto Rico. Also, all the photos throughout the post were shared by Claudia in her blog to prove that she knew NeNe.
Phaedra and NeNe try to console Dequenchia as the whines about the elusive Roger Bobb, however Demetria believes Phaedra is being insincere (and bitter. And spiteful. Because OMG – Phaedra does not think Demetria should wait forever for her boyfriend Roger the Friendly Ghost to propose!). Since Demetria can’t get mad at Roger Bobb – since he is never around her, you see – she channels her anger towards Phaedra and starts drama with her.
Of course, wanting to spread the hate around, NeNe and Claudia get into it over whose whorish behavior is the most whorish behavior (Answer: Apollo). The real question whose hellish behavior is the most hellish behavior (Answer: Apollo).
So that is what’s happening tonight on RHOA! Reality Tea will be live-tweeting so make sure to join us.
