*Well that was quick.

One day after Claudia Jordan was fired from The Rickey Smiley Morning Show, the Atlanta Journal Constitution is reporting that rapper Da Brat has been chosen as her replacement.

The 41-year-old, born Shawntee Harris, has been a frequent guest on the show over the past year, according AJC’s Rodney Ho. She’ll now become a permanent co-host on the syndicated program, which airs in more than 60 markets across the country.

As previously reported, Claudia was let go earlier this week – days after Bravo also fired her from “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” Her “Housewives” nemesis Porsha Williams, meanwhile, remains employed as co-host of Smiley’s syndicated TV gig “Dish Nation.”

Jordan spent a year with “Rickey Smiley” after replacing Ebony Steele, who had been with Smiley for seven years before also being fired without explanation.
