The Next: 15 debuts tonight on TV One and two of the cast members are already tangled up in a bitter feud that has spilled over to social media. After learning that Claudia Jordan has been talking about her in recent interviews, Jennifer Williams is throwing tons of shade at her TV One co-star.
The newest reality TV show to hit the airwaves is sure to be explosive as The Next :15 follows six former reality stars as they try to live their lives off camera and continue to bank on their former success. The stars include Real Housewives of Atlanta alum Claudia Jordan as well as Love & Hip Hop‘s Benzino, Tiffany “New York” Pollard, Basketball Wives star Jennifer Williams, Basketball Wives L.A. cast member Laura Govan, and The Real World‘s Karamo Brown.
The super trailer for the debut of The Next :15 shows Williams and Jordan squaring off in what might be the biggest beef of the highly anticipated reality show that showcases the lives of reality stars who are no longer a part of the shows that made them famous. Jennifer Williams comes from Basketball Wives while Claudia Jordan spent time on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Now the women are butting heads on TV One and it looks like their biggest problem might be a man.
In the promo, Claudia confronts Jennifer when she says, “I heard you’re dating my ex.” Jennifer shoots back coolly, “I’m sure you’ve had plenty of dudes since him!” Well, they certainly won’t be best friends, that’s for sure, and now Jennifer and Claudia are trading shots on social media.

One day before her new show debuted, Jennifer Williams jumped on Instagram and posted a message to her co-star. “So I land in ATL and get word @claudiajordan is doing interviews saying I’m jealous of her!!! Bissshhhh where? As we see from the trailer you don’t want these problems! Keep my name out your mouth trying to get press!”
Claudia Jordan is never one to back down from some drama. As soon as the RHOA alum heard Williams was taking shots, she returned fire with this gem, “LOL you’re so happy to be talked about again. You’re welcomed boo! Welcome back!”
Wetpaint reported that it’s not clear exactly what Claudia was saying about Jennifer in interviews or if she was talking about her TV One castmate at all. What is certain, though, is that these women really don’t like each other and there is a lot of bad blood. That makes for great reality TV and fans are sitting in anticipation of their debut together.
It looks like Williams isn’t the only The Next :15 cast member who has issues with Claudia Jordan either. Tiffany “New York” Pollard, who rose to fame on Flavor of Love and then her own spinoff, I Love New York, is also not a fan of Jordan. In the super trailer, Pollard can be seen storming off as cameras rolled. She threatens to quit the show rather than work with Claudia after a bit of drama pops off while working together.
Can Claudia Jordan get along with anyone, or does this diva know just how to get everyone heated and, in turn, raise the ratings through the roof? Before making her exit from Real Housewives of Atlanta, Jordan made waves with just about everyone on the show, most notably with Porsha Williams. It turns out that Claudia is accusing Jennifer Williams of doing the same thing to her that she did to Porsha when they filmed together. Does anyone else remember when Claudia was accused of going after Porsha’s ex-husband Kordell Stewart?
The Next :15 premieres Wednesday at 9/8c on TV One.
