Claudia Jordan Nears Real Housewives of Atlanta Deal: Who is She?

by at .

A new face is prepared to join The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 7 cast.

As previously reported, Kandi Burruss, Kenya Moore, Cynthia Bailey, Phaedra Parks, NeNe Leakes and Porsha Williams are all expected back for new episodes of this Bravo hit in 2015.

But they'll be joined by one new full-time player (Demetria McKinney) and one recurring star, Claudia Jordan.

“She hasn’t signed her contract yet, but it should happen in the next few days,” a source close to production tells Radar Online of Jordan, who will either be a "housewife or a friend of a housewife."

Either way, Jordan is a name fans will be hearing often - and she's also one they may have heard before.

In 1997, Claudia Jordon won the Miss Rhode Island USA title, finishing in the Top 10 that same year at the Miss USA pageant. 

She also served as a model on The Price is Right from 2001-2003 and then held a suitcase for a number of Deal or No Deal episodes.

Jordan appeared on the second season of Celebrity Apprentice and also on the All-Star version of the same series, getting fired early on both times by Donald Trump.

She even hosted her own weekly show on Sirius/XM Radio on The Foxxhole (“The Claudia Jordan Show”) for a brief period of time.

Jordan will come on board The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 7 during a tumultuous time.

Porsha Williams and Phaedra Parks engaged in an epic brawl at the last reunion special, while Apollo Nida is actually headed to prison for eight years for his role in a money fraud scam.

Remember: you can always watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online via TV Fanatic.
