RHOV: Jody Claman’s divorces, ex-husbands, beauty queen past and who is Mia’s Father? I’ll tell you :-)

Who is Jody Lynne Claman Deakin Samways Friedlander?  Who are Jody’s divorces and ex-husbands? Is Jody Jewish?  Who is Mia’s father?  Is Hannah Mia’s daughter?

Honstly, I couldn’t care less.  This woman is just about as interesting to me as stale bagels.

…but since no one else has stepped forward to put on the proverbial rubber research suit I guess I’ll play Indiana Jones for a day…so here u go!

The Run Down

Just like any other pathological liar, Jody’s description of her own life reads like a math word problem…to which there is no answer.  Let me take you on an adventure…through reality…something it looks like (on the show…let me be clear, I never met her lol) this poor woman lost touch with long ago…

RHOV Jody on a condo balcony

Jody takes in the view before leaving for a party.

Born Jody Lynne Claman, Jody’s been married 3 times, divorced 3 times (as of last month) and has 3 different children from 3 different husbands.

She’s from Lower Nicola, a rural town outside Merritt, BC and at age 17, was the runner-up to Miss Teen Vancouver in 1981.  Not kidding.

She has two sisters, converted to Judiasm like her mother, and her father, Peter Charles Claman passed away in 2007.

Here you go (click images to make them bigger) (sorry about the ugly watermarks, they keep honest commercial bloggers honest :-)

———->Jody’s first husband was Michael Deakin

  • Michael Deakin is Mia Deakin Claman’s father
  • Michael divorced Jody Claman in 1990 (public record)
  • Mia was 4 at the divorce (according to Mia’s own twitter)

Also, Jody claims she was very young, naïve and her first marriage didn’t last long.  In 1990 Jody was 26, she had Mia when she was 22…if she was very young when she got married the marriage certainly wasn’t short.

During her marriage to Michael, Jody was known as Jody Lynne Deakin.  After the divorce she returned to her maiden name.

On September 24, 1990 Michael Deakin divorced Jody Lynne Deakin (nee Claman) click image to make it bigger.

So, if you notice the dates on the Supreme Divorce in the above image, the last update to the file was in December of 2008.  This is where the rumors that Jody never divorced her first husband come from…lol…

———->Jody’s second husband was Robert Samways:

He’s the owner of “A Salon”….you can visit the website here.

  • Robert Samways is Joshua’s father
  • Robert divorced Jody in 2001 (public record)
  • He helped Jody raise Mia
RHOV Jodys second divorce in 2001 from second husband Robert Samways

Public record for RHOV Jody Claman’s second divorce, Robert Samways filed against her in 2001. (click image to make it bigger)

NOTE: This bit of reality directly conflicts with Jody’s account, in an interview with the Merritt Herald, she said was a “single mother for 25 years” and traveled the world before making the decision to finally marry again…lol.

———->Jody’s third (and soon to be ex) husband is Eran Friedlander:

CEO of Eagle Star Minerals Corp. you can visit their website here

  • Eran Friedlander is Hannah’s father
  • Eran divorced Jody in September of 2013
  • He helped Jody raise Joshua and Hannah

Totally came across this on accident today while double checking my searches…  Looks like Eran is in the process of divorcing Jody.

RHOV Jody Claman divorced by Eran Friedlander third husband

Eran Friedlander filed Supreme Family Law Proceedings against Jody Claman a couple weeks ago.  (click image to make it bigger).

***There is a rumor floating around that Jody also has a son by an 18 year old.  It is unclear if this rumor is about Joshua, Hannah or another child altogether.  Although this is unsubstantiated, Jody did claim on the show that MARY slept with an 18 year old so I’m almost inclined to believe there’s some truth in this given Jody’s history of projection…well let me just say if I found out it were true I wouldn’t blink.***

So Who IS Hannah’s Father?

The big Van City buzz is that Hannah is actually Mia’s daughter…but until I see proof it’s just a rumor.

While this wouldn’t surprise me, Peter Claman’s obituary (Jody’s Father) from 2007 lists Hannah as a grand-daughter…so if Hannah is Mia’s daughter, the decision to raise her as Jody’s daughter was a family one, made long before the show.

If Mia truly is Hannah’s mother, Hannah doesn’t know it…and the “Coquihalla/Gillis House” is a nursing home in Merritt, BC.

——–>If Hannah really IS Mia’s daughter, my guess is Hannah’s father is very rich, very married and goes to great lengths to remain very anonymous…

So What

It’s no secret that Jody’s got some pretty crazy skeletons in her closet, she even brags about how she fully intends to take them to the grave.

…which is a pretty bold statement considering the fact that she comes from a small town and is on a reality show…lol.

More power to her, I just really don’t want to see another season of her throwing tantrums and ruining everyone’s parties…HA!

    I think the fact that Jody is so reckless with her reputation speaks to how totally delusional she is. I always thought that she wanted to be perceived as cutesy and whimsical (the over the hill manic pixie dream girl archetype), instead she came off totally the opposite, still over-the-hill though. I miss RHOV, but another season of that last cast would have been too much.

    That’s why she hates Mary so much, Mary is a clean cut and genuinely nice girl, get over yourself jody, there aren’t many people that like you apart from brown noses Amanda, ronnie and of course Mia.

    hope when jody comes to uk that someone tips of the animal rights league here then she can find out what it is like to be bullied. Only difference is they will be justified but what can you expect from someone like jody who thinks the Queen will give here an audience. Best way to hit her is for everyone to stop buying her products remember JADE Big Brother

      Surely you aren’t comparing jody to jade
      Please no
      Jade never claimed to be s something she wasn’t and the poor girl died but was a good mum and has been responsible for saving many lives by women getting tested sooner
      Has jody done anything good ever ?
      One good thing she could do is not going for custody of little Hannah

    I am so ashamed to of watched the programme throughout, I really thought that each episode that Jody would be pulled up and outcasted for her behaviour, I am glad that there is not a season 3 as it was disgusting for the TV company to air such abhorant behaviour of such an odious creature “Jody”. I wish Mary and Robin all the best in the world for their future and as for Jody, I hope that you will get what you deserve “NOTHING”

    I am glad that there will not be a season3 as I couldn’t put up with seeing that vicious, evil and ugly person as Jody ever again. Never have I ever seen such “un-ladylike:” behaviour from someone who professes to be a lady. That woman doesn’t know the meaning of the word!
    But I do wish Mary and Robin good luck and health for the future and that the others get what is due to them for being such nasty spiteful women ever seen on tv.

    I am appalled that the television company would exploit someone with such overt mental health issues, Jody clearly is not very well. She comes across as psychotic and completely delusional. Why does she put on an English accent it’s embarrassing, she doesn’t have enough class to pretend to be English. She was crass, classless and exhibited some of the nastiest behaviour I have ever seen on television, I actually couldn’t watch the scenes where she ruthlessly attacks and bullies Mary. I am pleased Ronnie made the right decision in cutting ties with Jody at the finale, it’s obvious Ronnie and Mary have a real friendship which Jody was clearly jealous to the point of psychosis about. Oh dear, she won’t be welcome here in London that is for sure. In the UK we are pretty appalled that this even gets aired here. After watching the finale I can see why her husband made the wise decision to divorce her, I am sure he is completely embarrassed by her. Bianca S, Hampstead, London, England.

      English translation (from Swedish): “Jody, you are a disgrace to all women. Grow up and act like the adult woman you are. you destroy and destroy everything you come near. after yet another episode of the series, I feel like I’m going to vomit.”

      Thank you for reading!

    It’s nice to see there are women all over the world that find Jodys behaviour absolutely disgusting her ex husband should definitely go for full custody of that little girl because seriously who needs another ugly, vile adult walking around in another 10 years after being raised by utter utter filth.

    I too agree with all the sentiments above. I struggled to get through the second season purely because of having to watch that vile, evil, demented to the point of psychosis, ‘ Jody’. Her daughter is not much better either (Mia).. Then to a lesser extent, there’s the alcoholic and two faced Ronnie and that stupid troll Amanda. What a waste of time having her on the show, rude, nasty and really nothing special!!! I loved Mary to pieces, such a dignified, classy and kind hearted lady. A true lady.. The other ladies were okay, but this show was like looking at road kill, you can’t help but look, and it makes you sick! I much prefer the U.S. Housewives series. Much much better, sorry. Cheers from a group of us in Oz…

    Jody is a toxic waste. It is shameful the way she acted in the show. I’m surprised that she married an affluent man and that he even wanted her. She tries to portray herself as a woman from an affluent background but her actions speak that of a trailer park trash. As mentioned her daughter did not fall far from the tree. I don’t get the tiara. I think that is an overkill in trying to be what she isn’t. Shame shame shame to herself and the people around her not the mention the Canadian women that hopefully will not be judged by her actions in a Canadian show.,

    I babysat Jody when she was five years old. She was sweet and always smiling…a lovely child. Her parents were hardworking and cared for their children deeply. Jody has survived many disappointments in her life, as have we all. I don’t think we should judge Jody by her role on RHOV as much of what we see is for entertainment purposes. I wish her well in her future endeavours and hope she finds peace and happiness.

      hi tracey berkopec, i’m sure jody was sweet at five years old .. aren’t we all? .. the fact is jody is the nastiest and most vile specimen of a human i’ve had the misfortune to watch on daytime tv .. come on, you can’t be serious with those comments .. i only have three words to describe jody – eww eww eww .. as a canadian living in the uk, my feelings towards this vile creature were pure embarrassment .. jeepers, to think that the viewers around the world might think that all canadian women are like jody makes me shudder .. and that amanda is an idiot, no more, no less .. no wonder her boyfriend saw her in action with jody and ran and ran and ran .. i just hope that they get the help they both so desperately need, and more importantly, get their children away from them until they are somewhat sane .. why are they allowed to ruin the lives of the young ones living with them? .. oh, and yes, hannah is mia’s daughter .. is it not obvious to all?

      Some sweet 5 year olds can wind up as serial killers…. This waste of skin jodys actions spoke volumes. And so unattractive inside and out. Desperate for love and money she seems to be tragic at best. A facade that isn’t really worth commenting on. An embarrassment to Vancouver much like that crackhead politician in the east.

    If Hannah is also a granddaughter as you state, because you say that the Obit on Mia’s grandfather so if Miia had a child, allegedly ” Hannah” wouldn’t Hannah be listed as a GREAT GRANDAUGHTER? and by no means a granddaughter.

      In our family great grandchildren had been listed under grandchildren before. Still a grandchild whether it be great, great great or great great great. I wouldn’t put it past her trying to pass off Hannah as hers. If she’s trying to save Mia’s reputation there’s no point. That was non existent long ago.

    Most of the cast deserved each other! They all professed to be friends, yet all backstabbed the next person faster than they could say puke. Back and forth, I love you, I hate you. If this is what money buys, you can keep it all. From alcoholics to mental isses (Jody the mouthpiece), to oversexed women humping young guys, it’s no wonder there’s not another season. I was so tired of Jody’s bullyung, trashy mouth, and her mirror-image daughter, I would have had to start drinking myself to stomach another episode! I must say Mary handled herself like a lady through it all, so Jody, it bavkfired…..the nipumbers are in and YOU came out the stinkweed. Adios. You won’t be missed!

      So glad they didn’t do a season two, purely because of Jodie. She needs something really bad to happen to her to shake her up. And yet, she is so evil, I am not sure she is capable of becoming a nice and decent person. Her daughter is her mirror image, evil, vial trash!!!

    I absolutely hated jody as well, could believe she was suing everyone for telling the truth yet had the audacity to call beautiful Christina that she was a £10,000 a night hooker, i wish Christina had sued her!!! Well Mary, Christina and Reiko are having the last laugh as vile Jody is destitute, yet another husband has headed for the hills and poor little Hannah is another child living in a very disturbing situation in that house!! Mia is a common woman and all the fur and tiaras in the world wouldnt make the two of them a “lady”. Mary was a beautiful example of grace, kindness and humility and everyone could see that jody was just plain jealous of her and jody made a complete fool of herself with her twisted face and even twisted personality. Karma is a wonderful thing. I hope she gets the help she needs as she has obvious mental health problems and should not have a child (her grandchild Ive been reading) in her care. Mia is a wasted space and totally vile. Not worth a mention. Good luck to Mary, Reiko and Christina for the future you are all truly ladies and a great example of Canadian women.

    I found Jody to be vile, revolting, disgusting,ignorant,crude,specimen, certainly not a woman let alone a lady she doesn’t know what etiquette is & her daughter Mia is the mirror of her mother with the same revolting manners. I’m surprised the TV station give her viewing time with their friend Amanda. ( ie people in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones) all three seem to live in one. It’s been a pleasure to watch all the other cast members. Good luck to them all.

    Of course Jody was/and probably still is a mess.A very evil person and completely fucked up.I hope she gets some help but she seems too arrogant to recognise she has problems.An embarrassment to Canadian women as is her daughter,and Amanda and Ronnie.Amanda is also sick.Clearly her behaviour was that of a dry drunk throughout the series.Ronnie also showed all the viewers how sick(alcoholic) she is with her evil antics towards Mary and all her other sick behaviour.This woman came across as creepy as Jody she just had a prettier wrapper.Amanda and Mia seem to be the perfect personality types to be picked up by some sick cult leader.Oh wait they were picked up by the sick cult of Jody.Hopefully they’ll watch back the show, be embarrassed and get some help.Mia to get well will probably have to keep away from her mother (like alcoholics to stay sober a lot of the time have to stay away from other alcoholics.)Mary,Christina,Reiko and Robin all seemed like nice women.They would have been better representations of women in Canada.
