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?
