The news was announced this week as the cast of Love and Hip Hop: Miami came together to film the reunion, but this time, with Jordan at the helm. She shared the news with fans, saying, “It’s official! Your girl is hosting @LoveAndHipHop #LHHReunion.”
Jordan, who was formerly a star on RHOA Season 7 adds this opportunity to an already full plate. She is presently also the host of a Fox Soul talk show called Out Loud with Claudia Jordan. She is excited about taking on hosting duties though, noting on Instagram that she’s “grateful.” Plus, as a former reality star with RHOA and TV One’s short-lived The Next:15, she just might be the best person to handle the chaos that the Love and Hip Hop franchises can be.
She is taking over for Parker, who was the host of every reunion for the VH1 franchise since 2015. She took over for the likes of Oscar-winner Mo’Nique, radio personality Angie Martinez, comedian Sommore, and show creator Mona Scott-Young, who all took on hosting duties for the reunions for a short time.
She didn’t share a formal statement about her departure from the reunions, likely because she had dealt with her share of critics of how she was handling things as a host. She did, however, make it clear that she’s busy hosting the daily E! News show Nightly Pop these days, which is preceded by the hit entertainment show Daily Pop. When a follower asked her about why she’s giving up her hosting chair with Love and Hip Hop she replied, “you see me on this set don’t you chile!!” She also told another inquisitive follower asking why she’s done with LHHH reunions, “I couldn’t this time babe! My show here films every night now!”
Based on this new gig and recent posts, it’s clear Parker is happy to be moving on:
As for Jordan, you can see how she does when she debuts as reunion host when the Love and Hip Hop: Miami reunion airs, likely near the end of March.
