Claudia Jordan is making sure good friend Melyssa Ford is well taken care of following a horrific car accident that almost took the actress’ life late last month.
The former Real Housewives of Atlanta star launched a GoFundMe campaign to help cover medical expenses for the model, already securing $15,000 for her fellow Bravo alum.
“Her jeep flipped 3 times after being clipped by an 18-wheeler. She sustained a skull fracture, concussion and bleeding on the brain. She also has a 10-inch open wound that had to be surgically closed using stitches and staples with other severe gashes all over her body,” wrote Jordan on the crowdfunding page.

She goes on, “Melyssa and I are good friends and I set this up because so many people wanted to help and there are so many expenses coming at her I wanted to make it where there was one less thing she had to worry about-so she could just focus on healing. Melyssa gets 100% of the funds-whatever we raise-it’s all hers to handle all the medical bills & physical therapy she will surely need. Thank you so much for stopping by this page and for caring. This brings tears to my eyes seeing the outpouring of love and support. Thank you again.”
