Claudia Jordan is just getting started. During an interview with OK! Magazine that was posted on Friday afternoon, Claudia talked about standing up to NeNe Leakes. She also revealed what she thinks of Phaedra Parks and Porsha Williams implying that Peter Thomas isn’t faithful to his wife, Cynthia Bailey, in the latest The Real Housewives of Atlanta episode.
If both Claudia and NeNe stay on the show for the eighth season, viewers may see Claudia verbally going at it with NeNe again. When asked if she thinks she’ll ever be able to “top the read” that she gave NeNe during the group’s vacation in Puerto Rico, Claudia said with a smirk that she wasn’t even really trying and that there may be more to come.
“Oh yeah to me that wasn’t a big deal…I think that was like a warm up actually.”
What viewers won’t see is Claudia and NeNe arguing during the women’s upcoming trip to Southeast Asia. That’s because NeNe declined to go. As reported by HipHollywood, NeNe didn’t go because of concerns over the long flight considering her history with blood clots. According to Claudia, everyone got along well in NeNe’s absence, clearly implying that NeNe is often the instigator of drama.
“Everyone who showed up to the trip got along really, really well. And I think people are going to be pleasantly surprised about that trip. Cynthia said it was the best cast trip she’s ever been on.”
As for the scene in the most recent episode where Porsha and Phaedra said that they have dirt on Peter, which Porsha figured wasn’t worth talking about when the woman knows and accepts it, Claudia thinks that it’s all just made up. Claudia also pointed out that it’s easy to hate on Cynthia at this point.
“You know that’s some BS. All of a sudden now we’re gonna talk about Peter cheating? You know what I mean? It’s like the hypocrisy of it is crazy. Complain that you shouldn’t do this, you should fact check first! Blah, blah, blah but then you continue to do the same thing you complained about…I think it’s kind of trendy to jump on Cynthia.”
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Peter Thomas immediately reacted to the scene with a scathing tweet. He pointed out that Porsha, who is divorced, and Phaedra, who is going through the divorce process, are none to talk.
“The s**t these women makeup to deflect WTF is happening in their lives is funny as hell. My marriage is solid. Can’t say the same for them.”
Cynthia Bailey, who has bonded with Claudia Jordan, Kenya Moore and Demetria McKinney on season 7 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta after the demise of her friendship with NeNe Leakes, responded by simply saying that she seems to be Porsha Williams and Phaedra Parks’ favorite topic of conversation.
“At this point I am never surprised to see these two ladies gossiping and speaking negatively about me. Lately I seem to be their favorite topic of conversation.”
