Claudia Jordan Speaks On Growing Up Biracial!!!

When it comes to the newest Real Housewives of Atlanta star Claudia Jordan Speaks On Growing Up Biracial, she talks about her experience growing up.

Claudia show is half black and half Italian took to her Bravo blog to air her feelings about the racism that she had to endure growing up, but she doesn’t want anyone to feel sorry for her. She talks about her strained relationship with her mother and how they have never said “I Love You ” to each other. Her parents got divorced and she didn’t have her father figure growing up or a black person in her family to vent to when she needed someone to understand her struggles.


Was Kenya helpful in putting the shelves together?

Claudia Jordan explains:

“Hmm…was Kenya helpful putting the shelves together? Let’s just say I returned those shelves to the store and gave up on all hope of putting those things together after we fussed with them for about an hour. I do think, however, the wine in the red cups had something to do with our lack of focus and, ultimately, our lack of success! But I will say Kenya was a good sport about it, because it was a total set up and she had no idea I had chores for us to do when she came to visit, and she at least tried… sundress, Louboutins, and all! I can’t get mad at anyone who will at least try!”

On staying in shape:

“Well when I AM in shape (which I so am not right now), I like to go on three-mile jogs at least three times a week, as well as hit the track for a couple sprint workouts for the week. But honestly, I have not been putting in much work in the past year, and I am really not feeling my soft body right about now. I grew up running track and in college was an All-American sprinter, so I’ve always been somewhat active. But as life would have it, I have been noticing changes in my body the past few years, and I can’t just get away with eating all the carbs I take in and not being consistent in the gym. And also the older you get, the more important it becomes to do some resistance training as in weights, push-ups, squats, lunges, etc.

Every day I mean to go to the gym, but then my couch calls me. And that thing is so damn comfortable! But seriously, it’s the first two weeks back that are the most difficult. My old trainer Eric Nall used to tell us that it takes doing something for 21 days for it to become a habit. And it’s those first 2 weeks that are the most difficult mentally and physically. I think I slack off sometimes, too, because I know for a fact that my body responds really quickly to working out. So I KNOW if I really wanted to get back, all it would take would be a few weeks to a month and that sometimes is my excuse to put it off. I figure, “Hey I can start tomorrow, and I’ll be fine.” But then my 41-year-old body reminds me that it’s not 23 anymore, and it doesn’t cooperate.

The funny thing is not too long ago I was modeling and on covers of fitness magazines. I’m a long way from that, but sometimes I look at these photos to get myself motivated. I promise you guys, though, I will be snatched and in shape and hopefully my booty will be two inches higher by the reunion…if I can only get off this couch! I will say that gym scene with Kenya made me realize just how far I have fallen off! My booty done dropped two inches at least, my abs are on hiatus, and my arms look like Olive Oil‘s! Plus, I just feel weak. Matter of fact, this is making me angry. Let me get off this blog and take my behind downstairs to the gym right now!”
