Claudia Jordan, Porsha Williams and Demetria McKinney all competed for a peach in the current season of “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” but Claudia was the one who was granted full-time housewife status. Although Claudia seemingly got the peach, Porsha took to Twitter recently and claimed Claudia was never offered an official contract.
Well it looks like that just changed.

When the ladies began filming season seven, Porsha, Claudia, and Demetria McKinney were all in the running to earn (or keep) their coveted Atlanta peach. No one knew who would make the cut, but as they say — time is money. So, all of the ladies began filming with and without official contracts being signed.
As the season progressed, it became clear that Claudia would be the newest housewife to join the cast. Once the decision had been made during filming, negotiations between Claudia and Bravo began.
After spending months going back and forth about money and exclusivity, Claudia signed the deal earlier this evening and she’s ‘very happy’ with how things played out.
In an exclusive statement to lovebscott.com, Claudia says:
“Because I already have a great job – I could afford to be patient and waited until the contract was exactly what I wanted and it paid off. I’m very happy with my deal!”
According to the blogger, all this means is Claudia is just now getting her check for the current season because producers wanted to see how everything would pan out with the viewers.
