Claudia Jordan has got some ‘splainin’ to do!
Jordan appeared on ‘Watch What Happens LIVE!’ last night and spoke about the explosive 10th episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
During her stint on the late night talk show, Jordan spoke about the argument she had with RHOA vet Nene Leakes and addressed Nene’s ‘Half Breed’ comment, calling it the most offensive thing Nene said during their argument in Puerto Rico.
Granted, both ladies were disrespectful to each other during the battle and MANY insults were hurled back and forth. It’s expected that some comments would get personal, being that it’s all for the ‘show’ right?
But did you know that way before RHOA, Jordan actually referred to darker skinned Blacks in a derogatory way as well? *sigh*
Details about Claudia’s ‘color issues’ revealed in the video below…
On WWHL, host Andy Cohen revisited the explosive argument between Claudia and Nene and asked Jordan how she felt about being called a ‘half-breed’…
Why is it a negative to call me a half-breed. That was a really low-blow. That was worse than the whole ‘clit’ thing. I think.
I mean, I can’t do anything about that. Not that I want to, that’s just who I am.
And while Claudia was totally ‘offended’ by Nene’s comments, it seems she’s said some offensive things as well, and it wasn’t even for shock value on a reality show.
Rewind to the year 2009 and we find Claudia playing host to a Black party. While there, the socialite speaks about all the Dark skinned Blacks in Blacks that she couldn’t see and how she could only see the ‘BEIGE’ people like herself…. (yes, I’m shocked as well) and it was all caught on video.
Claudia states in the video above:
I really didn’t think it was a good idea with all these Black people walking around…. cause Black on Black it’s hard to see.
I can’t really see who’s who in all Black. I can only see the Beige people like Cecily, Jason, Janlan, (Kinda) Tina, Myself…
Everybody else I only see teeth and eyes. So whatever…
It’s a shame that there are so much self-hate within the Black community! The disrespectful statement has created a huge backlash for Claudia online.
@SipTheTea revealed a clip of Claudia’s statement recently, stating:
“so last night, a few #RHOA fans felt @neneleakes was extremely disrespectful with her “half-breed” comment towards #ClaudiaJordan and felt #NeneLeakes should apologoze for saying that.
Well, #TeamNene did some digging and sent us this video of Claudia dissing dark skinned black people saying she couldn’t see any them in the dark at an all black party she attended and could only see the “beige” people.
Should @ClaudiaJordan apologize for her comments as well?”
Claudia’s color issues clearly run deeper than the comments she made on the video, but she is who she is… a bi-racial woman who is struggling with her identity.
Both comments were offensive and both parties have work to do, but if Claudia seeks an apology over being called a ‘half-breed,’ she should apologize for her comments as well. Period.
What do you think about this tense racial situation?
