Recap: A Housewives History Lesson

Ep 8: Kandi and Phaedra meet Peg Leg Ron, and Porsha learns the Underground Railroad was not a real train.

Well the girls finally ended the fighting, got the A.C. and the bus going, and made it to Savannah. Although it wasn't exactly a smooth ride.

Porsha shed a few tears after a discussion of marriage left her feeling that the ladies ganged up on her. Maybe NeNe's bonding trip was a bit premature...

Upon arrival at their Savannah mansion, the Housewives were greeted by this:

And a warning that there were a lot of ghosts roaming around the halls of the place. Now frankly I started to get a bit spooked, because that seemed eerily like the start of every horror film in existence, right? That woman was way to friendly and disappeared real fast after dropping that little haunted tidbit.

Clearly Kenya was on the same wavelength, as she took that opportunity to jump out at everyone and try to scare them.

However no one really reacted, probably because they were all more frightened by the fact that there was so much drama before they even reached Savannah. Ghosts may not have disturbed Kenya, but she was disturbed by the fact that NeNe didn't stand up for herself and give the ladies a piece of her mind. And after a little coaxing, NeNe introduced the ladies a little light NayNay sass and told them they needed to get with the program and be on time. Everyone seemed to be cool with that, except for Kandi:

Who does not like to be talked to like a child, and Phaedra:

Who very quickly read down newcomer Mynique when she tried to speak up on NeNe's behalf. Poor Mynique didn't seem to know what hit her! She kind of seemed oblivious, while everyone else was like oh no she didn't! Exhibit A:

So after the awkward dress down, Kandi and Phaedra left the haunted mansion to clear their heads and in the process met Peg Leg Ron. Who's Peg Leg Ron you ask? He gives ghost tours of Savannah in a giant tourist-filled hearse.

I figured he must have brought the tour over there to show them the spirit of fun, which clearly died before this girls' trip could even get going.

Side Note: I think the wheels were turning in Phaedra's head after meeting Peg Leg Ron. Phaedra's Phinest Ghost Tours of Atlanta...

The next morning Cynthia went over to inform Mynique 1) that she needs to glam herself out more if she wants to hang with these ladies and 2) that she got read to filth last night and needs to learn how to throw some shade of her own. Evidently the secret is looking good, donning a wig, and having at least two gay men with you at all times.



Then off the group went for a historic tour of Savannah, including one of the stops on the Underground Railroad. Now I presume you've watched the episode, so you know what happens next, and honestly...what can you say?



Porsha thought the Underground Railroad was an actual train. There I said it. It honestly leaves you with so many questions. How would one have purchased a ticket? How would it have managed to stay a secret if it was a real train? OK, I will leave this alone now.Finally the girls seemed to loosen up and throw back a few cocktails...until the bomb was dropped that both Kandi and Phaedra dated Mynique's husband Chuck. And Mynique doesn't seem to know all the details, so yeah, it got awkward.



And then even more awkward when Mynique and Porsha somehow got into it when Porsha was joking the Mynique needs to ask her husband what the deal really is and Mynique found her voice and made a dig about Kordell. Just when we were all getting along...

Next week the not fun continues when Porsha cries. Again.

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
