‘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?
Do you have a hunch you like your girlfriend more than she likes you? Perhaps, that she doesn’t like you at all and is using you because she is lonely, wants attention, wants to make other people jealous or even wants your money? Here are signs the woman you are with doesn’t really care about you, and might be using you!
Trying to evaluate if your priorities are in the right place while looking for love? Wondering why every guy you date eventually spooks? Or, are you just a real life gold digger, trying to be a little more stealth about it? Here are 14 behaviors that make you look like a gold digger — whether you are one or not!
Are we surprised that another high profile couple bit the dust? No, not at all! However men and women alike were caught off guard when we found out that Kobe Bryant didn’t have Vanessa sign a prenuptial agreement some 10 years ago. Love is blind and all that but Kobe was worth a pretty penny before he got married to the 17yr old he met at a YoungBloodz video shoot back in 1999. Much to the displeasure of his parents, Kobe married Vanessa and was so smitten that he didn’t have his well paid lawyers prepare a prenup for the pretty lady to sign. #wheredeydodatat
Kobe’s not the first idiot to let love blind him into entering a lopsided marriage where his fortune is at stake and the partner has everything to gain. Paul McCartney comes to mind for some strange reason. Unfortunately for Kobe, the good state of California cuts the small talk and asks for half up front plus child support. I’m reminded of that prolific line from the great wordsmith Kanye West “cause when she leave yo a$$ she gon leave with half!” I’m inclined to believe that Vanessa deserves a quality payday but half is a number I can’t fathom sharing with my ex wife. Now what’s mine is yours and what’s yours is mine until you want to leave, then I have to get Oran “Juice” Jones on you and tell you to leave with what you came with. Let me break down why Vanessa shouldn’t be getting half:
Till death do us part
What happened to the sanctity of marriage? What happened to couples taking their vows before God and being accountable to the word they whispered from their hearts to God’s ears. Oh those were just words, ok then!
Ask any woman you know if she’d prefer to date a rich man over a poor man, and I’ll bet the overwhelming majority will say…”duh!!!”
All joking aside, there is something to be said for trying to date “comfortably”, and while this may not be feasible for all women, there are some compelling reasons why dating a rich man has its advantages.
Here is what the checkbook says…
Knowing what you want in a partner is a good thing. Making up a bunch of crazy rules that eliminate 99% of the eligible bachelors around, however, is not. The more restrictions you create, the harder it will be to find someone. You could be bypassing a lot of good dudes because you don’t date guys who workout at the Y or because you won’t call a man until you’ve had his number for a week.
Your process of elimination may be the reason why you’re single, especially if you fall into these dating ditches…
My father greeted me into the living room and I took a seat. I was a 19-year-old college student, and home on vacation.
He casually asked me about school, and then, almost immediately segued into whether my longtime boyfriend and I had intentions to marry. I laughed nervously. I was only 19.
Would you consider your man to be dedicated, committed and trustworthy? Is it possible that your man could only be with you for financial reasons- simply, is he a gold digger? A few years ago, Kanye and Jamie Foxx had avid music listeners bobbing their heads to their hit song, “Gold Digger.” Obviously, Mr. West narrated his lyrics from a male perspective- that is, men having to deal with gold digging women. In our current time and space, the narrative of women in relationships with gold digging men is oftentimes forgotten. Some individauls would likely state that women with any measure of intellect should know that a man is only with them for their money. And, I would wholeheartedly agree with this statement- exclusive of gender. But, let’s be real. Gold digging activities occur everyday. In an effort to feel wanted or loved, certain women allow these types of men to take advantage of them.
The following list is not all-inclusive but does represent some of the tangible indications that your man may be a gold digger who is more interested in your money than you:
Everybody’s got a hustle. Some people work 9 to 5. Others don’t need an office make money as professional gold diggers. But as women, is “gold digger” a name that should offend us?
It’s hard to bounce back after being a called a bona fide “gold-digger” in the press, but lo and behold she did it!
