Real Housewives of Atlanta newbie Claudia Jordan is RollingOut’s latest covergirl. She talks dealing with criticism and not being fired from the RHOA franchise. Check it out
On dealing with criticism about her look on the show:
“I was scrambling around in a new city trying to get settled, while being taped and, of course, that led to scrutiny. Many times when people said I didn’t look polished on camera, the truth was I wasn’t. I was working sometimes 10-12 hours straight before being taped for ‘Housewives’ so lashes and having my weave tight wasn’t always my top priority,” Jordan admits.
On the rumors of being fired Claudia had this to say:
“I don’t know how many times I have to say that I wasn’t fired. I’m still under contract with ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta,’ it’s just that’s not my only focus. I don’t know what my role for season eight will be, but as of today, I’m still a part of the show. With reality TV it’s about what you have going on in order to make good television and, of course, that changes sometimes.”
On finding her “leading man”:
“I’m always single,” she jokes, but quickly admits she was disappointed with a recent romance that went sour. “I’m attracted to integrity. I want protector, a leader. I want someone that would be a great teacher for our children. Everyone that knows me knows I’m a sucker for killer abs, but I know that I need balance.” Until Mr. Right shows up, Jordan says she refuses to settle because she is enjoying her life to the fullest at the moment.
Claudia has several projects in the working , including a talk show with BF Demetria McKinney, and is joining the ranks of many of her colleagues and is working on creating a brand around her name. She has a line of Italian handbags currently being developed, and has a new skincare line on the way. She was also recently tapped to be the face of a new hair extensions line for a company based in India.
