kenya moore, claudia jordan,*”The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kenya Moore warned new housewife Claudia Jordan of the rough and difficult road ahead. Good thing she did since Jordan has been bickering with OG housewife NeNe Leakes.

Moore opened up to HipHollywood about the advice she gave to Jordan on how to handle the drama going into the season seven of the show.

“When she transitioned to the show, I had a lot of advice for her. It can be really tough,” she said.  “I didn’t have a big sister or mentor to tell me look out for this, don’t do this, don’t say that, this is what can snowball into that. I didn’t have anyone to help me during my initial season on the show. I had a lot of advice for Claudia.”

She added, “Basically, be true to yourself. Don’t let these girls change who you are. Don’t let them get you out of character. Know that you need to develop your own relationships with them not based on me and who I like, or who doesn’t like me. This is not high school.”

The episode airing on Sunday, Jan. 11, 2015 was intense between Jordan and Leakes. But she’s been handling her newcomer status pretty well — especially going up against the OG.
