Claudia spilled a LOT of tea about RHOA on casting this morning on The Breakfast Club. She lets the cat out of the bag that she broke up with the guy she was dating last week. Which I found out about a few days ago from word on the street. Claudia has had a rough few weeks.
They talk about the Rickey Smiley show. She admits it was difficult working for Rickey Smiley. Apparently, Rickey banished Claudia from the breakfast table because he didn’t like the way she ate and made her eat alone. Charlamagne and the other host keep bringing up very specific rumors about how bad Rickey Smiley is and she is trying to tip toe around it. It is obvious that Rickey was a jerk, and Claudia felt restricted by being stuck in a role that wasn’t a good fit. She wanted to be free to be funny and she wasn’t. She was told to just read the news.
Claudia talks about how she was ready to quit RHOA three months ago, but was still under contract. Then when the contract ended and it was pickup letter time she was back wanting to stay. She says the job can be very stressful when there is so much drama, but the check and promotional opportunities are great. And you never know how the next season will roll. She was torn. Then the whole in and out stuff started. Claudia is not sure how Bravo feels about her. She wants a talk show. All these damn housewives want a talk show. This is a great video though, and I am hanging on every word, so I’d totally watch Claudia’s talk show.
Claudia talks about how much the dating scene in Atlanta sucks. On the positive side, you can have a ton of gay best friends. On the other side, you can’t afford to be too picky with the straight dick. Claudia says what we all know in Atlanta, you have to import.
That is the basic tea from the interview. I recommend you watch all but the last two minutes which is about Charlamagne loving to eat ass. Trust and believe, you can skip that part. As for RHOA she says she is still in the mix, and things are up in the air.
My NYC source has told me that her visit to True Entertainment yesterday was about RHOA and not a show with her and Demetria. So we are officially in “who the fuck knows what will happen” land again. I seriously JUST WANT TO KNOW ONE WAY OR THE OTHER! I bet she does too.
So even with my source saying talks are still ongoing, toward the end of the interview, Claudia says she is going to get her foot surgeries in three weeks. They mocked her for putting it off and she says she has been busy working and was on the show and didn’t have time (there is a long recuperation period). The fact that she feels like she can do it in three weeks which would be during filming concerns me. I guess she can always reschedule the surgery. ARGGH! I don’t know what to think!
This concludes my daily (sometimes twice daily) obsession with what the fuck Claudia is doing.
