Claudia Jordan star of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” would like to make one thing clear: She’s not trying to be Porsha’s friend. She took to her very long blog to answer some questions asked by Bravotv.com about Claudia’s thoughts on Porsha and NeNe after viewing this week’s episode. For example, what was going through Claudia’s mind when she watched their ladies-bashing lunch?
“I wasn’t surprise at all. Since they only hang out with each other, what else are they going to do besides talk about me, Cynthia, and Kenya? I mean seriously, without their beefs with us, what would they talk about? We are the focus of every single one of their conversations, tweets, blogs, and talking points. Now I’m not saying that we have never discussed these “ladies,” but we talk about other things as well. We actually have lives outside of NeNe and Porsha.”
Oh, snap! NeNe and Porsha, you’ve just been handed War & Peace – read that!
“And speaking of NeNe and Porsha, is anyone else tickled by the newest BFFs of RHOA? Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t NeNe the one who so eloquently told Kim (who she’s now “friends” with again) to close her legs to married men? Isn’t Porsha’s African man married? I’m so confused! I point this out not because I care personally what they do, but simply to illustrate how the hypocrisy and double standards in this group work!”
“NeNe is well aware of all her gifts from a married man, but now all of a sudden she doesn’t care if Porsha sleeps with this guy?”
Of course, Claudia knew what she was signing up for when she joined RHOA and as a past contestant on both Season 2 and Season 6 of Celebrity Apprentice, this should be right up her alley.
“Now some people may think that I have been quite aggressive with Porsha and NeNe, and I can totally see how one could think that,” Claudia explained. “My issue with these clowns is that they really try to get people to think they are so “unbothered.” (It’s interesting you would proclaim that after my infamous, “That’s why you’re so bothered,” line in Puerto Rico. Oh and you’re welcome for the inspiration behind your new T-shirt line.) Or that they are so busy with so many jobs that they couldn’t possibly be out here making phone calls, DMing former friends on Twitter, and googling to “get the dirt” on someone with so few “acc-o-lades” as myself.”
Are you wondering why RHOA seems to obsess over being married or having a man (even if that man is going to prison for 8 years)? Claudia shares her thoughts on that topic and has a message for women in America.
“Let me clarify something for Miss Thang, who for some reason seems to be obsessed with my dating life, my sex life, and my clitoris. (Creeper Alert!) I have been married and I have also been engaged. I didn’t think it was right for me, unlike others that would marry because the ring was nice and the man was wealthy. I didn’t feel it in my heart, so I didn’t go through with it. Women like this kill me, who think that a woman is somehow a failure if she isn’t validated by marriage. Please tell that to all the women in America that will never get married. And are you mocking them? Are they not “accomplished” in your book? That is ridiculous! By this logic are we to believe that NeNe thinks she is better than Condoleezza Rice, Oprah Winfrey, and a Jill Scott because she “accomplished” getting married to Gregg Leakes? This can’t be real life! Miss me with that!”
So why go to Porsha’s party for Dish Nation?
“I need to make something clear — like crystal clear. I am not trying to be Porsha’s friend. I know it may appear that way at that meeting at the Dish Nation party. But my main concern was the vibe amongst the rest of the people we have to work with at the station. People had noticed the shade, which was causing people to feel very uncomfortable at the studio.” Claudia clarified, “I showed up to her party, pretty much because I had to go! It was raining outside, I knew things were weird since I blasted her in Puerto Rico, and honestly I’d rather have stayed home watching Family Guy. But I felt torn since the entire morning crew was going, and since I was still new, I thought it would show that I was at least trying if I showed up.”
In closing, Claudia has interesting observations and expectations of Porsha.
“It’s funny that Porsha will scream from the roof top how “unbothered” she supposedly is, but will run out in the middle of a conversation when it gets real. I suspect her EQ may be even lower than her IQ if that is even possible! Have a grown woman conversation like a big girl. Oh wait…am I really expecting substance from the same girl that put on gifted Tom Ford lotion in the middle of our other conversation and uses words such as “woomp woomp woomp” just to avoid accountability? OK, my mistake!”
