Claudia Jordan just lost her two biggest gigs, and although she claimed she left “The Rickey Smiley Show” to pursue other opportunities, sources are saying she was actually fired because Rickey couldn’t stand her.

The AJC writes:

The radio show’s ratings on Hot are up year over year overall and among 25-54 year olds but have fallen among younger listeners. Last month, it ranked in a tie for 13th overall with a 3.7 share overall compared to a 2.6 share in June, 2014. Among 25 to 54 year olds, it’s up to a 4.4 share from a 4.2 share a year ago. Among 18 to 34 year olds, it fell from a 7.2 and second place in June 2014 to 7th place with a 4.6 last month.

My source said Smiley, in a huff, had stopped talking to Jordan a couple of weeks ago. With ratings down in many markets, the source said Smiley was looking for excuses. (His show is syndicated in more than 50 markets, including St. Louis, Miami, Detroit, Dallas and Chicago.)


    1. If he does that, he will lose the little fans he has left. You know he did her dirty. And they were friends too. Smh.

  1. I don’t Claudia but Rickey really does have some issues. He can’t get along with any woman he does radio with.

  2. I think her bad vibe on RHOA really followed her to the radio show. She acted so ugly on TV I wasn’t trying to hear her on the radio. And the one person she was messing with the most is not only doing well on Dish Nation but Porsha got her peach back. She clearly was doing too much.
