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?
