Hot Tea Alert:  Claudia Jordan EXPOSES Scandalous Back Story With NeNe Leakes

Posted on Jan 12 2015 - 1:21pm by BeachSpin

Claudia Jordan Nene Leakes

The Real Housewives of Atlanta” ended with a raunchy bang last night, with Claudia Jordan and NeNe Leakes getting into a nasty verbal smackdown. NeNe hit WAY below the belt during the spar, in a frantic attempt to articulately keep up with the rookie Housewife. Claudia Jordan sounds off in her Bravo blog today, but interestingly instead of rehashing the just aired shady battle, she lets us viewers in on the NeNe back story, giving us an inside peek at their history. Claudia begins by clarifying that she and NeNe have never been friends, and that her spotlighted ugliness came as no surprise.

“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.  Quite frankly outside the 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.”

Claudia explains that she and NeNe first connected in 2009, when Leakes reached out to the newbie via Twitter, to unload a hosting gig in Atlanta. The event was surrounding New Orleans Saints player, Charles Grant, and NeNe was seeking to bow out, in order to not be seen at the party.

“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.” 

Claudia was free that weekend, so she took the job, but was surprised to arrive in town to meet Leakes in person, at a pool party. She wondered why NeNe was actually in town and still dumping the gig, but the two took photos, and NeNe was pleasant and friendly.

“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.  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.”

Claudia also reveals that she and NeNe have remained friendly and supportive on Twitter, as well as during various events and interviews where they have crossed paths.  It naturally puzzled her to have NeNe treat her dismissively when she joined the cast, as well as characterizing her as “thirsty”.  Was the shade simply about ‘team pretty’ jealousy?

“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!”

Hmmm, indeed. It appears that Claudia had stepped into the middle of what rumors are made of. Kim Zolciak played a role in the drama when she outed NeNe for allegedly carrying on with Grant during her first marriage to Greg on an infamous episode of Watch What Happens Live, aired August 6th of 2009. Grant later confirmed the supposed involvement himself during his appearance on the RHOA (season 4 episode 5), filmed while dating then cast member, Marlo Hampton.  Wendy Williams even referred to Grant as NeNe’s post separation boyfriend. Watch a video clip below of Charles Grant saying he took her (NeNe) back to the hotel and it was a “Done dolla.”


Was NeNe initially just jealous and dismissive towards Claudia to thwart uncovering the back story of their meeting? NeNe should have left Nay Nay at home, because Claudia Jordan is obviously much more than just a pretty face.

  • Yes! Claudia pulled Nene’s card once again! She has the nerve to want to talk about Claudia’s past, when it’s alleged she slept with Charles Grant. And her “divorce” from Gregg was a farce. She’s a mess to talk about somebody else’s past when hers is just as shady, if not shadier.

    • RonnieIsBack

      Exactly…She had them receipts…Boom!

    • equinox2009

      She and Gregg were in financial trouble big time, Gregg owed everyone money and was used for fraud. So NENE divorced him to disassociate and married him back because Bravo paid them big, big coins. Thus Queen Nene was born! Ego to fit a queen!

      • Right. NeNe acts like we don’t remember those tv camera crews showing up outside of her house one day because of the debt they were in. SMH

  • italiano bambino

    OMG The Ne-Ne-Jerk gets nastier, uglier and stupider with every passing moment ! If that hamster on her head is really a wig, why doesn’t she JUST TAKE IT OFF ?
    It’s reported that the Moose population of America is taking her to court for defaming their reputation ! AND they ain’t using those BOZOS James Leonard and Fed-Up-Fake Nida as they got a proper guy ! Would that be you Stacy ?

    • italiano bambino

      Lol too funny

  • cait

    IF THAT IS A WIG, her stylist needs to be shot, quick ! Looks like someone poured a bowl of custard over her head !

  • RonnieIsBack

    See lying azz…I knew Nene was lying..just like she said she never knew Faudra…..
    This is why she is afraid of Marlo…

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Ronnie! I’m sorry, but I don’t understand why is Nene afraid of Marlo?

      • cait

        Marlo is very pretty and clever ! Neigh-Neigh is a nasty horse of a woman ! Giving the Moose a break !

      • RonnieIsBack

        Hey Mars!
        You have to check her charges…marlo is a slicer and dicer and also knows a TON of socialites (go figure). Nene didn’t want any problems with Marlo…at she decided to suck up to her.

  • Brattus Rattus

    I stopped watching this show because of Nene. When she would go from speaking like her normal self and then catch that she didn’t sound “polished” enough and start to speak all boushie. I don’t like fake people and fake was oozing from her…everything.
    All I can say is that everything done in the dark will always come to light.

      It’s coming..Moose is getting her Karma 3 fold….First Horsha got hers (dumped via social media, public divorce, fired from Bravo) then Fakedra (public humiliation, Apollo going to jail, pending divorce) and now it is Nene’s turn…..

      • LymeDisease_Fighter

        Saving the best for last……

    • chacha1

      and on top of that she is a dead ringer for a camel .. her face looks just like a camel

      • Anne Green

        I always said a giraffe but a camel I similar.

  • Marsbars09

    I’ve noticed that Nene is distant with people that have known her in the past. First Nene denied knowing Fake and her family in Athens, now she acts like she’s never met Claudia. What’s up with that?

    • italiano bambino

      She’s afraid of the Real past coming back

      • Bad Barbie

        Looks like Google is not her friend though.

    • RonnieIsBack

      Bish Moose has a shady past…..

      • Marsbars09

        Are you referring to me as a bosh or Nene?

        • RonnieIsBack

          Nene chica…Nene is a Bish Moose….Never you.

          • Marsbars09

            Whew! I’m glad you cleared that up. I don’t want to lose you as a pal. 🙂

          • RonnieIsBack

            And you never will Marsie!
            Unlike Moose, I am loyal to my friends.
            Other heauxs are not LOL…

  • Rochelle Barozzi

    I about lost it when she called Claudia a “half breed.” Nene you are a stupid racist POS. DONE.

    • Shelly Jones

      That was disgusting. When you are intellectually inferior, you immediately go below the belt. Talking about her cl*t was just nasty too. Nene is an embarrassment to womankind.

      • equinox2009

        Alright, alright! Best post!

  • Caliqueen

    its sad nene had to go there and say all that unnecessary shit i cant with nene anymore.. sam claudia and kenya !! lmao nene and porsha can take the “railroad train” straight to hell where they belong lol

  • msxmargo .

    Finally HeHe was shut down, Claudia verbally beat HeHe down, Claudia went out her way to be respectful to friendly everybody has a limited and HeHe went over hers! It really makes HeHe and Phadrea look catty and jealous. I still don’t understand why Kenya and now Claudia r housewives?

    • Bad Barbie

      Claudia is divorced. Kenya is the single chick looking to be a HW. Every other city has someone that is single.

  • Bad Barbie

    It would have been cheaper to recruit her and not make her an enemy. So Nene is calling Claudia “thirsty” for taking a gig she passed on? Does she think those roles she gets, she is first choice? She is all about “work” but knocks other people for being hustlers. She did the same to Sheree, Kim, Dwight, Marlo, Kandi, Kenya. Same MO.
