‘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?
