RHOA: NeNe Leakes and Claudia Jordan Battle in Puerto Rico
Jordan calls Leakes "the founding father of shade" on a girls trip organized by Demetria McKinney
“Is that shade, Phaedra?” asked Demetria McKinney, who invited all the women to Puerto Rico to watch her perform. “There have been a couple of moments I have felt I want to make sure that if it is shade, I address it.”
McKinney was addressing Parks’s constant disses about her age to become a pop star, her relationship, her fashion sense and even if she had done crack.
“I’m younger than you,” said McKinney.
“You’re closer to 40 than 20,” replied Parks.
“The only thing we have in common is the number eight,” retorted McKinney, referencing Apollo Nida’s prison term. “Yours is going [away for eight] and mine has been here for eight.”
“Honey, be a pop star, but please don’t invite me nowhere else,” said Parks. “I don’t know this girl. I could care less about her.”
When Claudia Jordan attempted to make peace, NeNe Leakes turned on her, but the new girl stood heel to heel with the queen of one-liners who continues to give her the cold shoulder.
“I’ve never seen women act so immature,” said Jordan. “Rude, disrespectful bitchy.”
“You have your own brain?” asked Leakes, referencing Kenya Moore‘s influence over Jordan.
“Coming from the woman who is the puppet master,” said Jordan. “Bitch, I ain’t no puppet.”
“You wish you had what I had in the bank, darling,” replied Leakes.
“I pay my own bills. I don’t get on a pole Never been arrested,” replied Jordan.
“I’m in my 40s,” said Leakes.
“We look 20 years apart,” said Jordan. “You had edges [when you were my age].
“Claudia is reading NeNe like hooked on phonics,” said Kandi Burruss.
Until Leakes went for the knockout punch.
“You’re a whore,” she said. “You’ve done slept with everybody [in Hollywood]. Your c— has done left your body.”
But Jordan still got in the best zinger of the night.
“NeNe’s got the George Washington wig,” Jordan said, referencing the short blonde mane she called “ramen noodles”. “She’s the founding father of shade.”
