Aside from that one argument with NeNe Leakes, Claudia Jordan’s time on Real Housewives of Atlanta is easy to forget. After all, she was only on the show for one season. Even so, she says that she was asked to come back for more, but she still didn’t get that offer to hold a peach in the opening credits, i.e. a full-time spot as a Real Housewife.
Claudia explained why she left the show after she was offered the opportunity to be a “Friend of the Housewives” and threw some shade at her former costars.
Claudia appeared on an episode of the Brandi Glanville Unfiltered podcast to discuss her time as an Atlanta Housewife and to
talk shit about dish on other reality TV hot topics. Claudia told Brandi Glanville, “They asked me to come back as a “Friend.” That’s the one misconception I hate. People think, ‘Oh you got fired.’ No, I didn’t.”
Claudia admitted, “They asked me to come back as a friend, which was a downgrade after I fought and earned the peach. Now you want me to come back with a pay cut. I do it for the money. I’m there for the money.” She explained, “When you’re downgraded to a friend, they don’t follow your personal story. You just kind of have to be a Housewives plus one. So I was at a crossroads.”
Claudia even claimed, “Kandi [Burruss], Cynthia [Bailey], and Kenya [Moore] were pleading with me ‘Please come back. It will do a lot more for you second season.’ I was just like, ‘I don’t know.’ I wanted to take on acting and a talk show has always been my thing.” Brandi chimed in with, “That’s what I want to do.” She also said, “I like to be around the drama. I don’t want to be a part of it, but I like to talk to people who are in it.” I would be down for a Brandi talk show.
Claudia cast some shade when she said, “I learned when I was on Atlanta Housewives that a lot of people quote the Bible who may not be living that life.” She added, “I feel like people who try so hard to shove that down your throat, beware.” Who can this be about? The only Bible-quoting cast member who comes to mind is disgraced Housewife Phaedra Parks.
Then talk shifted to Brandi’s time on Celebrity Big Brother with Omarosa. Claudia appeared on Celebrity Apprentice with Omarosa and the two former Housewives share a distaste for the former White House staffer. Brandi shared, “I have every single person’s phone number from that show except for hers. I do not need to be talking to her.” Claudia told her, “You’re going to heaven for that.”
Claudia said, “Well, now that I know she wouldn’t be on [Celebrity Big Brother], I would because she’s just the one person I don’t want to do a show with, unless it’s like celebrity death match.” She discussed their time on Celebrity Apprentice, saying, “We were on the same season and we were cool at the time. So we said, let’s make a pact to not throw each other under the bus. OK, like I’m really going to make a deal with you and she just, you know…” Brandi chimed in with, “She came for you.”
Claudia claimed that Omarosa “was talking about using charity money from her newly deceased boyfriend for challenges and I just thought that was unethical. It just didn’t sit right with me. She said it while she was mic’ed.”
Brandi is all too familiar with Omarosa’s off-putting comments after spending a month with her on Celebrity Big Brother. Brandi said, “She said some things in there and I was like ‘You’re gonna get sued coming out of this place.'” Claudia told her, “The devil doesn’t care.”
Claudia declared, “She needs to watch her back because she’s been running her little mouth.”
Brandi revealed, “So we had a meetup the day after [Celebrity Big Brother] at Marissa’s house. We had like everyone from the show over. She had secret service with her. People are out to get her. She had security guards and it was scary.” Claudia said, “She needs a bitch slap.”
