Claudia Jordan Explains Why She Didn’t Accept NeNe Leakes’ Apology
After her epic “half breed” fight in Puerto Rico with NeNe Leakes, Claudia Jordan has penned a new blog post explaining why she couldn’t accept her fellow housewife’s apology.
According to Jordan it wasn’t the comment about her multiracial background that was unforgivable, it was Leakes’ remarks about her being a “whore” whose “cl*t has left her body.”
NeNe’s harsh words were apparently especially hurtful to Jordan because the reality star is a victim of sex abuse.
I guess I should address the argument with Linnethia (Is that how you spell it? One day I will get it right!).[…]
Some may think I’m a pit bull or that I was wrong for not accepting NeNe’s weak apology. Well I don’t know how these ladies do it, but where I’m from apologies for bad actions usually come with an explanation so there is an understanding as to why it happened in the first place. That was my entire point for pressing NeNe. I wanted to know why that was the go-to thing to attack me with — my integrity as a woman.
I’ve experienced lots of things in my life, I know a thing or two about sexual abuse, so for me to be called a “whore” and have someone talking about my private parts is for sure a trigger. I don’t want to get into all the ugly details, but let’s just say my life was affected by that word, and it is something that cuts me deep. It seems that has followed me throughout my life. Maybe because I am considered somewhat attractive, the go-to insults are “whore, ho, b***, and slut.”
I remember not being able to have sex for years after what happened to me, and men getting frustrated with me and again using that word to hurt me when that was the furthest thing from the truth. I wish people would be careful with the words they chose to use, because you never know someone’s back story. So I was demanding NeNe tell me why she was calling me a whore, and she refused to answer that question, so that was why it was so difficult for me to accept a simple, “Well, I’m sorry!”
