“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” certainly know how to dominate a news cycle. Just a few minutes ago, we published a story saying that Porsha was leaving the show. In actuality, she’s been demoted to a “recurring character.” And it makes sense. Judging by the drama that’s coming up this season, she absolutely must be on set to comment on what’s about to go down.
Bravo made sure to give us a full and very juicy trailer.
They address everything we were wondering about and then some.
We watch as Cynthia and NeNe try to repair their friendship, seemingly to no avail. Kenya Moore is trying to date. The newbie, Claudia Jordan, stirs up all kinds of drama when she’s seen out with Kordell, Porsha’s ex. Phaedra is allegedly having an affair. And they even let us see a bit of Apollo’s epic flip out.
Watch the season 7 trailer in the video below.
Whew! This season is going to be good. We’re ready.
The new season of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” airs on November 9 at 8 pm ET/PT.
Will you be watching?
The long-lived beef between Claudia Jordan and her former Tiny Tonight co-host Tamar Braxton is no secret. Fans have witnessed the reality stars exchange catty words on-air and on social media site Twitter, so it’s definitely not shocking that Claudia is elated that her rival has been replaced by Basketball Wives star Tami Roman.
Filming for the nighttime talk show, which is reportedly scheduled to return September 20th, has already begun and Claudia says Tamar’s absence is definitely a good thing.
“At least Tamar is no longer on the show to thhrow shade and hate your way,” one follower wrote beneath a photo from the set that Claudia shared to her Instagram page.
“It was such a better vibe across the board! All the girls were able to shine and speak their peace and respectfully disagree. Everyone left happy knowing we just created some good television. I personally had a blast!” Claudia responded.
And in case you forgot how their petty feud began, it all started when the two couldn’t see eye-to-eye about what the perfect date looks like and Claudia began throwing words like “gold digger” around, which Tamar took as a below-the-belt jab.
“Listen, if you think that by me saying, ‘I’m not a gold digger’, when I’m being attacked from all angles because I say that my perfect first date is not necessarily getting into a private jet, which is so freaking unrealistic and I say, ‘Hey, I’m not a gold digger,’ and you take offense to that, then you might want to take a look at yourself. I never said anything about her being a gold digger. I don’t know her life. She was definitely firing shots like I don’t have standards because I don’t expect a guy on a first date to take me on a private jet. Who does that? I think hookers do that and high-end call girls, escorts,” Claudia said of their childish feud in an interview earlier this year.
How do you think the show will do without Tamar? Will you be tuning in?
Back in March when Tamar Braxton first announced that she was pregnant with her first child, she also revealed that she would not be returning to VH1’s nighttime talk show, Tiny Tonight, even though the network ordered more episodes of the entertainment program.
“I’m not on that show anymore. Well you know, I only actually agreed to do two from the beginning. Because Tiny and I are really, really good friends. Everyone knows that. So like I told her I would do it and that was it. I’m saying that I wasn’t scheduled to do it in the first place,” the “Love & War” singer expressed.
Well, in case you were wondering who Tiny got to take her BFF Tamar’s place, it’s Basketball Wives star and fellow VH1 personality, Tami Roman. The outspoken mom of two announced the news on Twitter last night.

Claudia Jordan, who had major beef with Tamar back when they co-hosted the show together, quickly chimed in, encouraging everyone to welcome Tami to the show.

While Tami’s addition to the cast was a bit surprising, it seems like this could be a great fit for her, especially since the fate of Basketball Wives seems a bit shaky these days.
Do you think she’ll be a good addition to the show?

In case you were lucky enough to be unaware of the pretty drama brewing between Celebrity Apprentice alumni Claudia Jordan and Omarosa’s 65-year-old mother, Theresa Manigault, allow me to catch you up to speed. While on the red carpet at this year’s BET Awards pre-show, it seems that words were exchanged between Claudia and her sworn enemy Omarosa and then things got physical. According to Claudia, Omarosa walked by and called her a b***h and Momarosa punched her in the arm, which led to verbal retaliation on Claudia’s behalf.
“I told her that she should probably get out of Michael [Clarke Duncan's] house. She’s squatting in it. I’ve seen the docs. But anyways, we are not here for Omarosa and that monkey face b***,” Claudia told Baller Alert.
Omarosa, however, told Hip Hollywood a completely different story.
“You know my mother. You know my mother wouldn’t punch Claudia Jordan in the face.”
“They bumped into each other, but there was never a punch thrown. It’s a non-story.”
I know, I know. It’s all very high school, but unfortunately, the pettiness didn’t end there. Following the incident, Momarosa petitioned for a restraining order against Claudia.
“She started to use profanity at me. As I was walking the carpet, she began to be physically aggressive. [She used] her shoulder to try to knock me off balance,” she explained in the court filing.
According to TMZ, the judge presiding over the case wasn’t buying Momarosa’s story because he denied her request for a protective order. A hearing has been rescheduled for July 24th, which is when she will be able to restate her case. Now I realize that Omarosa’s beef with Claudia is no secret, but someone is going to have to tell me how her 65-year-old mama found her way into the mix.
What are your thoughts on this foolishness?

If you saw the super trailer for this season of “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta,” you might recall an interesting conversation brewing between Karlie Redd and Benzino about a p*rn tape with Joseline. Since all we’ve seen are a few second of the discussion, we had to ask Benzino what all that was about when he came into the office — and more importantly was he Joseline’s leading man. We also needed to know his status with Karlie and what was up with those pics we saw of him and Claudia Jordan getting awfully close earlier this year. Lucky for us — and you — “Zino Grigio” told us everything we wanted to know. Check out what he had to say in the video above.
Claudia Jordan Comes For Omarosa: ‘This Woman Had A Red Carpet At Her Fiance’s Funeral…How Upset Were You?’
Claudia Jordan has a problem with Omarosa.
So what’s up with that you say? Well, despite the fact that she’s now a woman of the cloth and suffered the tragedy of losing her fiancé, Michael Clarke Duncan, a lot of folks still don’t like her. Just ask La Toya Jackson. No, wait, just ask Claudia Jordan.
You see, Claudia and Omarosa used to be friends, but had a falling out after Michael Clarke Duncan’s funeral.
Apparently, Omarosa didn’t like the fact that Claudia had posted a picture on Instagram from her fiancé Michael Clarke Duncan’s funaral as she laid him to rest. Claudia, however, feels that was a minor offense if it was one at all because the picture she posted was in tribute to the Green Mile actor.
See Claudia Jordan’s response on EurWeb.com.
We love it when randomness like this pops up in our inbox.
Just as we’re trying to fully recover from the fact that Karlie Redd allowed herself to be physically touched by the likes of Benzino, rumor has it he’s been putting his thin puckers all over a new woman — Claudia Jordan.
Actually, it’s not a rumor because the proof is in the pic. What’s not so clear is whether this is promo or grown people play play. See, our first inclination is to say this is for a music video of some sort but when we think about Benzino’s relevance to the music industry and the decades that have passed since he’s released music anyone was checking for, the probability seems kind of low. Then again, stranger things — like his ex-girl Karlie Redd dropping a song — have happened so maybe that’s all this is. Or Claudia Jordan could be making her way to the next season of “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta” and this is a part of Benzino’s storyline. Or the star of Tiny Tonight could just be trying to see what that be like…why we can’t possibly say.
Anywho, caption this pic and tell us what you think is going on between these assumed budding love birds. And check out a few more pics on the next pages.
‘You Might Want to Take a Look at Yourself:’ Claudia Jordan Thinks Tamar Braxton’s Issues with Her are Absurd
Last week when we reported on Tamar Braxton’s pregnancy announcement, we also told you guys that the “Love & War” singer would not be returning to her post as a co-host of VH1’s Tiny Tonight. While Braxton says that her departure from the show has nothing to do with tension between she and former co-host, Claudia Jordan, she did reveal that she still has issues with Claudia. Interesting enough, it appears that the feeling isn’t mutual. In an interview with Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club, Claudia discussed the so-called beef she has with the youngest Braxton sister and claimed that it is actually a one-sided issue because she has no problems with Tamar.
“I don’t have one [a relationship with Tamar]. It’s a one-sided beef. Before I did Tiny Tonight, I had never seen the Braxtons or any other that she did. I had never even heard her music. I knew nothing about her except that she’s one of the sisters of Toni Braxton. They told me that she’s extra before the show. I’m like ‘Cool, this should be fun.’ She was cool the first day in rehearsals. She was like ‘You’ve got flawless skin,’ and I’m like ‘Is that a bad thing? My bad.'”
Claudia went on to say that out of the blue, Tamar’s attitude just changed.
“From the first day to the second, the vibe just changed tremendously, to the point where I kept my composure and girls in the audience were yelling, ‘Way to keep it classy, Claduia. We love you!’ They felt bad for me. It [the show] was edited to make it look much nicer than it really was.”
While some believe Tamar’s quarrel with Claudia stem from her insinuation that Tamar is a gold digger, Claudia says that’s absolutely absurd.
“Listen, if you think that by me saying, ‘I’m not a gold digger’, when I’m being attacked from all angles because I say that my perfect first date is not necessarily getting into a private jet, which is so freaking unrealistic and I say, ‘Hey, I’m not a gold digger,’ and you take offense to that, then you might want to take a look at yourself. I never said anything about her being a gold digger. I don’t know her life. She was definitely firing shots like I don’t have standards because I don’t expect a guy on a first date to take me on a private jet. Who does that? I think hookers do that and high-end call girls, escorts.”
Turn the page for footage of Claudia’s interview (she begins talking about Tamar around thee 11-minute mark). What do you think of her response? Is she simply a victim of Tamar’s mouthy ways or did she play a part in the beef as well?
Drama On The Set: Latest Episode Of “Tiny Tonight” Sparks Twitter Beef Between Tamar Braxton And Claudia Jordan
If you were able to catch the special Valentine’s Day episode of VH1’s “Tiny Tonight”, you probably noticed the undeniable tension between co-hosts Tamar Braxton and Claudia Jordan, especially when the ladies began to discuss dating with standards and considering a man’s financial situation. Claudia expressed that the extravagance of a first date isn’t indicative of the success of a relationship.
“I had a very amazing date with someone at a very low-end restaurant, who was on the Forbes List and it ended up being a really nice relationship,” said Claudia.
“But he ain’t put a ring on it!” Tamar obnoxiously interjected.
As you can probably guess, this is where things got ugly. The ladies proceeded to go back and forth with Tamar taunting Claudia for not having a ring yet and Claudia expressing that love isn’t all about money, which is where Tamar quickly got defensive and began stating that she isn’t a gold digger. Tiny quickly diffused the situation, but of course, it didn’t end there.
Although previously taped, it seems that the episode airing last night stirred up some old feelings in the two co-hosts because they almost immediately began going at it via their Twitter pages the moment the episode aired.
Claudia does have a point. Tamar could’ve handled the disagreement a bit more professionally and didn’t have to personally attack her co-star for having different views.
Check out the video clip of the conversation that initiated the tension between Tamar and Claudia on the next page. What do you make of all of this? Is this a ploy to boost ratings?
Our problem child Tamar Braxton is known for running her trap. I mean just about anything can come out of her mouth at any given moment. But, the youngest Braxton sister seems to be considering changing her blabber mouth ways. After finding herself in the midst of a Twitter war with Beyonce stans and “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” star Joseline Hernandez over some not so nice comments she made while co-hosting VH1’s Tiny Tonight, Tamar is claiming to have learned her lesson. In an interview with Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club, she even somewhat implied that she will begin filtering her thoughts before allowing them to come out of her mouth. Now wouldn’t that be something?
She expressed to host Angela Yee that with her newfound fame comes the constant scrutiny of her words.
“Whatever you say out of your mouth is like verbatim. Like ‘That’s what you said so that’s what you mean’. Well, no, not really.”
Tamar’s hubby Vince also chimed in on the conversation.
“I tell Tamar that sometimes she can’t speak all the time what she feels. But, you know she does make comments and we’re working on a talk show and things of that nature… It just happens. That’s what girlfriends do when they sit around and talk… Nobody gets mad when Joan Rivers says some crazy stuff about somebody.”
It seems that “Love & Hip Hop” star Joseline’s reaction to her negative comments is what really caused Tamar to consider how her words were impacting others.
“I’ve never even met her and I did feel bad about saying that. I was actually speaking about what everybody else was saying. I didn’t really take into consideration that she has feelings.I used to get bullied. I use to really get my feelings hurt on a daily basis. It was tough for me. So when I heard her frustration when she was talking about ‘I will fight her’ and ‘I fight old chicks’ and whatever she wants to say I was like ‘Oh, she’s hurt. So, I’m sorry.'”
I suppose we’ll have to wait and see if Tamar has really learned her lesson.
