Claudia Jordan was handed her walking papers from “The Rickey Smiley Morning Show,” and sources claim it’s because Rickey wasn’t keen on her being part of the show.

We told you months ago that it was rumored Rickey didn’t even want Claudia to eat breakfast with him and now Claudia confirms the gossip.

She tells the Breakfast Club crew:

“It’s true…We all ate breakfast every day. But then one day, I was told that it was annoying that I ate and that I should eat in the other room….I was pulled aside (by one of the producers) and said ‘Do you have to eat every day?’ I said, ‘I prefer to eat every day’. I thought it was a joke. And some days he (Rickey) was extremely nice.

“I think he liked me personally, but I will say — I don’t think I was a good fit for the show…I don’t think we’re now cool, personally.”


As far as RHOA is concerned, Claudia claims she wasn’t officially fired but other prospects have been test filming so she will learn her fate in the upcoming weeks. She’s also single again, so that may hinder her from getting a peach in season eight.

Check out the video below:


  1. So Claudia is just going to keep pretending she wasn’t fired. Girl if they are filming without you, you’re done. Lol!!

  2. It’s clear Rickey has a problem with getting along with a good amount of his coworkers. But I don’t care for Claudia so I’m not upset she’s been fired. And if they are filming with new people and she hasn’t been filming, yeah she was fired. I don’t see Bravo bringing her back in any capacity to be honest. She wasn’t a good fit.

  3. SO much delusion. She’s too prideful to admit she was practically fired. Her peach will go back to Porsha.

  4. Crusty toes is still at it. Lying like the tea ain’t already been spilled by multiple sources.

  5. Man why is she still gettin interviews…slow day at 105.1 when they r interviewing CJ to compare notes…anyway when did this chick have a man???? Didn’t hear about him or see him on the show and now that she’s not on the show she’s SINGLE again?? I’m confused

  6. How come Claudia is the only one not sure about what’s going on? Kenya, Cynthia, Phaedra and Porsha have been filming. She seems fired to me.
