‘RHOA’ alum Claudia Jordan defends Kenya Moore over ‘tragic’ sex-post scandal: She ‘was never a liar’

Claudia Jordan is defending her former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” co-star Kenya Moore after the latter was fired from the show following a verbal sex poster scandal.

“I think it’s tragic… It is [‘RHOA’] worth watching if she won’t be on it? I think she’s a big part of that success and I hope it’s just a temporary thing,” the radio host told TMZ on Saturday.

Jordan, 51, also claimed Moore, 53, had “never been a liar”.

“Kenya will say something and people will accuse her of being messy, only to find out years later that she was telling the truth,” she added.

Moore — who starred on “RHOA” between 2012 and 2023 — was indefinitely suspended from the hit Bravo series after she allegedly decorated her Kenya Moore Hair Spa grand opening on June 6 with posters of newcomer Brittany Eady performing oral sex on a mysterious a man

The reality star, however, immediately denied that she would do such a thing on both Instagram and X.

“Don’t believe anything you hear and half of what you see,” she wrote at the time on her Instagram Story. “The truth always comes out.”

Moore further refuted the reports about X, writing, “I would never engage in revenge porn, I would never distribute private images or footage of anyone, nor request images owned by others to threaten or blackmail.

“I have always been justified. I can’t talk STORY even with people planting fake news #sweet16🔥.”

Eady – who was not present at the grand opening – also took to social media and appeared hurt by the reports.

“It’s never a good feeling to be targeted or HAZED by someone I thought would embrace me into a new circle I’ve never met,” she previously wrote on her Instagram Story.

She further clapped back at rumors that she had threatened Moore with violence before her hair spa event.

“For the record, I have never once had possession of any weapons or threatened anyone at any time,” Eady, 36 wrote.

“I’ve never been in jail, in a fight, or even had so much as a speeding ticket. That’s not my character.”

She concluded, “I am hurt by the story that is being exposed. Wrong is wrong.”

After Moore’s suspension, the “Housewife” promised fans that she wasn’t going anywhere.

“You’ll see me,” she confidently declared during Instagram Live on June 14. “I’m not going anywhere despite everything surrounding whatever people have decided they want to write.”

However, on June 25, Page Six confirmed that the former Miss USA winner would not be returning to “RHOA” for the remainder of Season 16.

Moore then threw shade at Bravo, the network that airs the series, following her exit.

“My life is blessed. Myself and my daughter will continue to thrive in a non-toxic environment where we feel valued and most importantly, protected,” she wrote alongside a carousel of holiday pictures that featured her 5-year-old daughter, Brooklyn.

In addition to Jordan, several Bravolebrities have defended Moore since the scandal broke.

Former “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Brandi Glanville wrote via X, “Women physically fight anymore. [‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’] & that seems to be okay with producers. Where is HR now?”

“Create the villain, enable the villain, praise the villain, then punish the villain because he is… a villain,” she added in a second message.

Kandi Burruss, who starred with Moore on “RHOA,” recently said on the “Yung Joc & The Streetz Morning Takeover” show: “I know a lot of people are like, ‘She shouldn’t show that,’ but this is ‘ Housewives.’

“How many times have we done something that you don’t think someone should do? So, who made the rules? Why do you suddenly have such a problem with someone doing something crazy to someone?”

Burruss, 48, further defended Moore on Page Six’s “Virtual Reali-Tea” podcast.

“A lot of people say, ‘How can you support that?’ And I’m like, at the end of the day, she didn’t do anything about anybody,” she told us.

Production on Season 16 began in May, via Bravo. It is set to premiere sometime in 2025.
