“Passed Around Sl*t!” Tiny Slams Claudia Jordan Over “Pig” Jokes From Old Radio Show That Have Resurfaced
Claudia Jordan started this week out on top after proving that she wasn’t scared of NeNe Leakes and defending herself pretty well during their back-and-forth on Sunday’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta episode. But it’s only Wednesday, and yet, things have gone left for the radio personality and reality TV star.
It seems that after NeNe Leakes called Jordan a “half-breed” during their argument this past weekend, and Jordan described the statement as a hurtful “low blow” on “Watch What Happens Live,” Leakes’ fans started digging up all kinds of disparaging video and audio from Jordan’s past. First there was video of Jordan at an event joking about how it was too dark in the venue, so she could only see the eyes and teeth of those with a darker complexion.
She tried to explain those statements as a joke taken out of context:
“…that was 6 years ago. I have grown so much since then. It was a joke that was used against me.”
But nothing comes close to the audio people are passing around (which seems to have been on YouTube for a while now) of Jordan during her Foxxhole days years ago. In the audio clip from the old Sirius XM episode, Jordan is heard tearing into Tameka “Tiny” Cottle during a story about T.I. and his legal troubles. In it, Jordan is brutal when speaking on Tiny’s looks, along with fellow co-host, Johnny Mack, comparing her looks to a piggy bank and joking about her possibly having Down Syndrome. It wasn’t pretty:
This was clearly years before Tiny brought her along to be on the short-lived VH1 talk show, “Tiny Tonight.” And Tiny wasn’t aware of the ugly things that were said by Jordan about her. As I said, after Sunday’s “RHOA” episode, this audio was passed around, and it somehow ended up right in front of Tiny. To say that she was pissed after listening to it would be a lie–she was furious. This is what she wrote early this morning on Twitter:
Instead of trying to say that these were jokes also used against her, Jordan was apologetic this time around and told everyone she would say sorry on the “Rickey Smiley Show” this morning. When that audio becomes available, we’ll be sure to add it in this post:
As it turns out, Jordan ended up breaking down and tearing up over her comments while apologizing on the show. Afterwards, she took to Twitter again to speak on taking responsibility for hurtful choices:
Wow is all I can say to all of this. But what about you? What do you think about Tiny’s statements and Jordan’s choice to publicly apologize to her?
Before Basketball Wives sinks, Tami Roman wanted to keep her brand alive and kicking with her new cosmetics line “TR Love.” Now, her new line, which features specially packaged lip gloss and nail polish, will be available at your local drug store, a press release reports.
The beauty line, which will be sold in 400 Walgreens in December, are named after the meaningful women in Roman’s life including Khloe Kardashian, Mo’nique and Cecily Tyson.
Before all the hoopla of Basketball Wives, Roman revealed she was using food stamps to support herself and her family. Falling on hard times, “lip gloss and a trip to the nail salon were the only ways she found to pamper herself during her financial hardships,” the press release says. Developing a fondness for lip gloss and nail polish, Roman created “TR Love Cosmetics” for women to treat themselves to eye-catching lips and a manicure.
“TR Love can also currently be purchased online,” the press release adds, “a portion of all online proceeds will be donated to the Akasha Center in Santa Monica, CA in honor of Tami’s late mother.”
In addition to her success with TR Love, be sure to check out Roman, the new host of Tiny Tonight, Thursdays at 9pm on VH1.
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?

‘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?
A few months ago I asked, “Why Do Mediocre Men Have Such High Standards?” I was somewhat reminded of this as I caught the second episode of “Tiny Tonight” on VH1. An audience member asked Claudia Jordan and Trina what an ideal first date would be. More interested in cool conversation and a good time, Claudia responded, “I’m pretty much a simple girl. Like, I don’t need all the extravagant things. I kind of want to get to know the person, so a lot of talking. I like going to dinner. I’d even cook dinner for the man; I think that’s kind of fun. We can go bowling. I can see how you react when you lose or when you win. Are you a good sport? And I just like to keep it light and fun, especially for the first date. You don’t really want a lot of pressure.”
Claudia’s co-hostess and rapper Trina, on the other hand, wasn’t as modest with her demands: “I’m more of like a sweep me off my feet type of girl. I just feel like, put me on a private jet; fly me away for a little while. Let’s have dinner, let’s have romantic one-on-one time on a little island, a beach, some sand never hurt anybody. I’m spoiled, like rotten, so I need all of the attention—not some of it.”

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.
Peep the video of Tamar’s full interview on the next page. Do you believe that Tamar will actually turn over a new leaf?
I always get a chuckle when I think of how our reality television problem child, Tamar Braxton-Herbert’s blabber almost always lands her in hot water and not just with her co-stars, but with stars from other reality shows as well. Her most recent offense has been against Love and Hip Hop Atlanta star, Joseline Hernandez. Tamar recently appeared as a host on nighttime talk show Tiny Tonight along with Trina and Claudia Jordan and during a year-end entertainment recap, the ladies wound up on the subject of the infamous Love and Hip Hop Atlanta love triangle between Stevie J, Mimi Faust and Joseline Hernandez. Tamar of course, the most outspoken of the bunch, proceeded to call Joseline a man.
Ms. Hernandez, obviously angered by Tamar’s comments, confronted Tamar via Twitter before hurling a tirade of insults at her. First Joseline, flipped the script on Tamar, saying that she was the one with man parts and then proceeded to call her a grandma. If you know Joseline, you know she didn’t stop there. A few days later, she appeared on Kandi Burruss’ online show, Kandi Koated Nights, where she continued to discuss the situation and go at Tamar.
Two weeks later, I guess Tamar has recognized the error of her ways because the “Love and War” singer issued a half-apology to Joseline via her Twitter page.
“I should says sorry2 @joseline cause I was only joking during a year in review show. It was all “in fun” but I didn’t want 2 hurt any feelings,” she tweeted.
I mean, I guess it was big of Tamar to offer an apology to Joseline even though it was way after the offense was made. If she’s smart, she probably looked back at that video of Joseline putting the beats on Stevie in that therapist’s office and concluded that it’s probably wiser to have Ms. Hernandez as a friend than a foe. If Joseline found it in her heart to forgive that scheming Karlie Redd during the last season of Love and Hip Hop Atlanta, then we’re sure she can forgive Tamar as well.
Why do you think Tamar all of a sudden wants to apologize to Joseline?

This past Monday, we told you about the drama between Love and Hip Hop‘s Joseline Hernandez and Tamar Braxton that jumped off after Tamar kicked up dust around the ancient rumor that Joseline Hernandez was a man pretending to be a woman by adding her two cents during the premiere episode of Tiny Tonight. During the show, the clip of Joseline wailing on Stevie during a therapy session was shown. “I don’t got time for that type of boy-on-boy action,” Tamar boldly stated at the conclusion of the clip and then proceeded to call Joseline “a fine rendition of a woman.”
Of course Joseline didn’t take kindly to those comments and proceeded to go at Tamar via her Twitter page and now, the Love and Hip Hop star has taken the beef a step further. According to The Jasmine Brand, last night Ms.Hernandez made an appearance on Kandi Koated Nights where she chatted it up with Kandi Burruss and discussed the beef.
“First of all Tamar, they been saying you look like a dude four years ago. B***h you the one that look like a man, don’t get it twisted. Dont go there. For real, you like 50 years old. Im a young broad, I dont know you, why you f**king with me. I dont know who you are, I know your sister.”
“That b***h ain’t 35. If she 35, then Im 17 and we know I aint 17. She need to take that money and do plastic better surgery.”
Tamar, who has been pretty quiet since Joseline declared war on her a few days has ago has also responded via her Twitter page.
“I guess if I wasn’t bullied name calling wouldn’t effect me. I always thought I wouldn’t go through it as an adult. I guess I was wrong. smh,” she tweeted.
Now, Tamar is my girl, but she can’t possibly be trying to pull the sympathy card talking about she’s being bullied when this is some mess that she singlehandedly started.
Check out the full episode of Tiny Tonight on the following page. What do you think of Tamar’s claims that she’s being bullied?
It seems that Tamar Braxton’s debut on Tiny Tonight has made her the queen of stirring up mess by breathing life back into old rumors that most people have long forgotten about. Yesterday, we reported that Love and Hip Hop‘s Joseline Hernandez went completely off on the “Love and War” singer calling her a Beyonce “wannabe” because of Tamar’s reference to the ancient rumors that Ms. Hernandez is actually a man posing as a woman. Of course, being no stranger to controversy, Tamar didn’t miss a beat chiming in when co-host Claudia Jordan brought up those old “Beyonce faked her pregnancy” rumors either. When asked what she thought of Bey’s pregnancy, here’s what our favorite blabber mouth had to say:
“Well I thought she was pregnant until the whole deflating of the stomach thing when she sat down. I was like…”
It goes without saying that the “Bey Stans” lit up Tamar’s Twitter mentions almost instantly and not long after our girl was back peddling.
“Never said Beyoncé faked her pregnancy! ! That was claudia’s A$$! I was talking about the video that came out this year so _/ and rewind,” she tweeted.
Remind us not to commit any crimes with Tamar. As soon as the Beyhive turned up the heat on her, homegirl started singing like a canary, throwing Claudia completely under the bus.
Everyone and their mama had opinions as to whether or not Beyonce was actually pregnant. That’s not the real offense here. The true question is why the hell are they still talking about it? Baby Blue has been here for almost a year, why is this even relevant anymore? While Tiny Tonight is an extremely cute show, those writers and hosts need to get up to date with the latest happenings because stirring the pot with old news is not going to cut it.
What do you think of Tamar’s statements regarding Bey’s pregnancy?
