Manne-Kim

Episode 11: Bravotv.com's Assistant Editor counts down this week's top three moments.

No. 3 - Friends in High Platforms

Maybe it's just me, but did NeNe and Marlo's friendship seem rather unexpected? In any event, mazel to them! And truth be told, when NeNe explains all their similarities, it kind of all makes sense. They both love shoes. They're both 5'10''. When NeNe walks into a room, she owns it. When Marlo walks into a room, she ALMOST owns it. So I guess Marlo is like her little sister. A NeNe in training if you will. And who doesn't love a friend who just doles out designer handbags?

The other girls better play nicely with these ladies, because two 5'10'' divas in Louboutins are a force to be reckoned with, especially given moment No. 2...

No. 2 - Surprise!

NeNe's new BFF came into her life just in time. NeNe needed some more backup on the Africa trip, so why not bring Marlo? If they walk into this trip together, they'll most certainly own it. However I guess NeNe just forgot to alert anyone else that Marlo was coming. Oops. But seriously that's a big deal, because when you add another person to a group trip, you can completely change the dynamic. And given Kandi and Sheree's reactions, I have a feeling it may not be a change for the better. 

Maybe that uneasy feeling Kandi had about the trip was actually a premonition. Is she the new Allison DuBois? Get her an electric cigarette!

No. 1 - Manne-Kim

Kim's get skinny quick schemes are probably one of my favorite things about this show. Where does she even find out about these things? While the laser pizza incident last season can probably never be topped, Kim's mummy wrap is certainly a close second. I really don't quite get how being wrapped in gauze for an hour is supposed to make you lose weight, but evidently it worked. The best part by far was when Kim was bouncing on the trampoline and then it would cut to Kandi hurling giant tires around with her trainer. I have to say if it's a choice between being ensconced in bandages or lifting tires with Kandi's scary trainer, I'd take the wrap route.

Next week in perhaps the most unexpected twist of the season, NeNe plays peacemaker when Sheree and Marlo go off on one another. Will wonders never cease?

Claudia: Porsha's Been Stank All Season

Claudia Jordan fires back at Porsha Williams for coming for her at the reunion.

Bravotv.com: Were you nervous going into your first reunion?
Claudia Jordan: Not at all! I was so looking forward to it. I thought there would be more drama and it would be more difficult for me, but it was a piece of cake. I thought everyone for the most part looked great in their all white outfits, and the set was amazing!

Bravotv.com: Were you surprised Porsha came for you?
CJ: Absolutely not. She's been quite stank all season. The last time I was surprised at her actions was when we met for lunch way back in the very beginning of the season, because up until a week prior, I thought we were cool enough. Not friends, BFFs, or besties, but cordial acquaintances. But when she kept doing little catty things, I saw what it was. Looking back I understand. I was the new girl, and when a new girl comes on the scene, not all the women will embrace new energy and new personalities; some will automatically feel threatened. I for one love meeting new women and making friends. I think there is nothing more powerful than a group of talented, beautiful, and intelligent women. Check out my Instagram and see the crew I roll with on the daily. It's clear that I live by that. I've never been intimidated or jealous of any other women. I embrace my lovely friends, because I respect them and how they handle their business. I love meeting new people and look forward to learning new things from new acquaintances I make. So to be so closed minded about another person right out of the gate and create a "reason" for it after the fact is just dumb. But at this point, dumbness does not shock me nor does ignorance.

I do want to address one of the lies Ms. Williams told about me at the reunion. I never asked around town for the tea. Porsha started making it clear to the world she had an issue with me, even though I had no idea why. I then heard some completely unsolicited gossip from my friends, but I kept it under my hat -- I mean it was juicy, but it was really none of my concern outside of gossip, and I certainly was not seeking it out. And it would have remained there forever had she had not become so nasty to me. At the end of the day, I don't care what and whom that girl allows to enter her bat cave. But just keep it polite and cute towards me. Don't get caught out there loudly running your mouth about me in hallways. Don't be shady at work. Don't make statements to NeNe slandering me and Kenya, talking about our legs being up in the air and criticizing us for not being married, then complain that folks are slandering you. It's quite simple. And if you know in your real life how you get down, it might be in your best interest not to poke fun, egg on, and laugh at another woman being wrongly accused of doing what you do, because you might mess around and taunt someone that will get with you and spill your room-temperature tea. #DropsMic


Bravotv.com: Are you going to continue to pursue stand-up?
CJ: Yes, I am. I actually did a show that Bravo recorded. They showed a brief snippet of it on the reunion, but I really wish they would show it all, because it was funny! I had a great reception from the audience, and a lot of the girls came to my show -- Cynthia, Kenya, Demetria, and my best friend, Auta. Also most of the morning show came and supported me, and they all gave me props! It felt amazing. It was very empowering and exhilarating to be on that stage and see all those people in the audience cracking up and getting my sense of humor. I've already got some calls and requests for bookings just from people hearing that I want do stand up. I will keep you guys posted when I do some more shows!

Please follow me on Instagram and Twitter @ClaudiaJordan for all the updates on my career. I have been getting lots of bookings, hosting concerts for Ginuwine and Tank. Please check my Instagram for upcoming tour dates. Also I have two films coming out this year called The Hills and Love is Not Enough. I am in talks right now for a third movie to start filming in the fall. This past weekend I got the chance to catch up with a dear friend of mine that got me started in radio-Mr Jamie Foxx. His album drops on May 18th and we were there to support him at his album listening party. Just wanted to share some photos from all the fun times I've been having lately! Life is good and I am happy and feeling loved!

xoxo, CJ
