Claudia Jordon finally graced us with a RHOA blog this week. I must say it is worth the wait. She does not hold back on the tea about Nene Leakes. And she tells us a great story about Nene bugging out on an event with Charles Grant. Perhaps she was reminded of that situation when hanging out with Marlo this week. Read on for all the details.
From Claudia’s Blog:
“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. LET ME BE CLEAR: I have never implied that NeNe and I were friends, nor was I ever interested in pursuing a friendship. 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.”
“As far as me meeting NeNe before, let me explain and provide receipts. When I first got on Twitter back around 2009, I didn’t follow many people, and at the time I wasn’t watching #RHOA, so I was NOT following Ms. Leakes — I really didn’t know much about her. 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. 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. 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. 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.”
“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! 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 “
