Claudia Jordon wins the week for being the first RHOA to get her Bravo blog in. It seems this season that Bravo gives the housewives a list of questions to answer, or they have the option of writing their own format. Most people are taking the question route. It is a lot easier. It’s interesting that she doesn’t analyze the totally fake and dramatic scenes at the Tavern. She does go into some detail about why Cynthia thought she needed a makeover. I think she looks fabulous without any at all. Why gild the lily?
At the end of the blog she makes the point that the flip phone was not hers but her grandmother’s. I think Kenya was giving her crap for her flip phone on Twitter last night. She would like it know that she has an iPhone.
Bravotv.com: Did you appreciate Cynthia setting up the makeover with Derek J or did you think it was a little shady?
Claudia Jordan: No, I didn’t think it was shady at all! I’m the first person to tell you I put very little effort into my hair and clothes. Half the time I’m just trying to get somewhere on time, and it’s just never been a priority to get overly dolled up. I have to be up at 5 am every morning for ONE of my jobs. I hit that snooze button more than a little bit trying to get an extra few minutes of sleep in before work. Then when I get to work sometimes we take photos with the guests and BUSTED! I look less than stellar and got caught out there! Or then I get a call that I have to be somewhere right after work. But my priority is getting to where I need to go. And yes, I know I can do so much better, and I have taken Cynthia, Kenya, and even Demetria’s advice and I do get a little better with it throughout the season. Just bear with me. I’m a tom boy in a glamorous field, so I’m finding my way. Sometimes I do think some folks are a little TOO hard on me. I’ve read some nasty comments about how I dress/look, and I’m like, “WOW!” It’s funny though, because you can’t tell me there haven’t been times that I got it right…but those times seem to go unnoticed. Oh well. Good thing I’ve really never been the type to let others’ opinions make or break me!
