Before I started blogging, I was a blog reader. Once you have your own blog to worry about, the bigger it gets the less time you have to read other people’s work. So I nearly fell off my couch this morning when I heard Wendy Williams quoting Atlanta’s premiere blog, Straight From the A about Kordell Stewart’s sexuality this morning. Congrats, Atlien!
Most of us have seen the preview of next season where Porsha says that Kordell never wanted to sleep with her, leaving her to wonder what it is he wanted. This renewed YEARS of speculation that Kordell is gay. This rumor dates back to his football playing years and has followed him up until today. This is not some Bravo drama they just pulled out of nowhere. Also, all Porsha said is that he didn’t seem to want to be intimate with her. On RHOM Joanna says the same thing and… oh um nevermind bad example. Anyway so y’all did indeed let me know that the rumor was going around again and that Kordell was denying it but I ignored it because, well… It is what it is.
I did not know that Straight From the A received an exclusive email from Kordell’s lawyer that said in part, ” I’m very ashamed of my wife for saying something that she knows is not true at all. The rumors have never been true. I’m not gay.” Go to SFTA for the complete statement.
Atlien seems to be on Kordell’s side despite posting some tweets from Kordell that essentially say that Porsha slept around during their marriage and that is why he would not sleep with her. I on the other hand find it interesting that Kordell has to come up with an explanation acknowledging the allegation that he did not sleep with Porsha. Frankly, I will continue to give Kordell the side eye. Porsha was beyond in love with her man and defended him even when he didn’t deserve right up through the finale. He left his wife to defend their scenes alone on national television while every other REAL woman had their man there by their side. So, for me, this lawyer statement means nothing.
I totally believe that Porsha was blindsided and perhaps hoped she could er…pray away … the issues in her marriage so that she could have a child with Kordell. Perhaps Porsha was unaware of the rumors until the show aired and they all began to circulate again. Either way, unlike Atlien, I lay the blame squarely on Kordell’s shoulders. He should have known there are consequences to not showing up to a reunion show when summoned by Andy. Please go read Atlien’s opposing view and tell me what you think.
