Talk show host Wendy Williams even gave me a shout out when she relayed the news during her hot topics…
But I digress…
Clearly Kordell’s written statement didn’t quell chatter about his sexual identity and after Porsha and her mom roasted him during episode #1 of RHOA season 6, Kordell’s decided to speak out again.
In a recent interview with Atlanta radio personality Ryan Cameron, Kordell speaks candidly about how his marriage to Porsha fell apart.
He also reveals that he things she’s being disrespectful by using her platform to tarnish his reputation and finally addresses those longtime gay rumors of his being arrested in a Pittsburgh park performing fellatio.
Details + watch Kordell’s full interview below…
Kordell explains how it was Porsha’s lack of attention to his son and their homelife that destroyed the marriage, stating:
Now when it comes to the Twitter thing—my wife had said to me many times after coming home two in the morning, three in the morning, maybe four in the morning because she’s tryna hustle like the ‘Nene’s’ of the world, and everybody wants to be Nene. So, my thing is… after a couple times of it happening and me not knowing because I’m at work (you know how I work 2-6) so through all that I’ll get home or whatever and my son would say,’ When’s mommy coming home?’ or ‘Did she make it home yet?’ I’d say, ‘Oh, she’ll be home in a little bit…she’s out doing her thing (talking about Porshea.)’ And so we’d wake up the next morning and my son would ask me ‘Did mommy make it home?’ I’d say, ‘Yeah, she’s sleeping.’ So when my son asks me this these few times I have to figure out… ‘How do I make him understand what’s going on?’ He doesn’t deserve to have to deal with that, when there are two parents in the home…
Kordell also feels that Porsha was being ‘disrespectful’ by not honoring his wishes and coming home at all hours of the night, stating:
So when you have all that in place and I ask the question: ‘Babe what’s the deal… Why you coming home (so late) what’s going on?’ And get the response: ‘What do you mean? I’m grown. I do what I want to do…’ That’s a quote from Porshea—from my wife.” When it happened I’m kind of messed up a little bit because I ain’t never had this gangsta talk to me, from my woman before…from the standpoint of you doing your thing but its supposed to be about the household…..And when I was done playing the game I said I wanted to make sure that when I was done, the money that I made I wanted to inject that in my family-to-be. I had a son already…Sire’s been here. Porsha came on the scene—she married into the Stewart family. I didn’t marry into the Williams family—that’s her people. She married into the Stewart family. So when I went out of my way to make sure that we were situated… we were good, as if I was still playing the game because I was capable of purchasing cash, my house for my family.
When you come out of your mouth showing that type of disrespect…you don’t know how much that burned me up inside. To know that I’ve always been about team concepts all my life—whether it be my family, whether it be my teammates from the age of seven, all the way until I was what. 34/35 years old playing in The National Football League. I’m all about everybody pulling their weight—everybody doing their part. And the person that actually may suffer if no one pulls their weight is the child. So when my wife tells me that she’s doing what she wants to do, because she’s out doing what she’s doing… for whatever reason she’s choosing to do it. When I allow Bravo in the house I went against the grain of who I am, and what I represent. I’m private, and I had to compromise everything about my manhood from the standpoint of…okay, I’m gonna let these people in, let my wife do what she do and that’s it.
Kordell also addresses those pesky gay rumors again, and adamantly states that they aren’t true.
Those rumors that I got arrested for lewd acts in the park? One, I never got arrested. I don’t have a record in Pittsburgh.
It went from one park to another park. I never got arrested in that state or in that city….
I wasn’t going to allow me to not make my money… keep my job let alone indulge into a rumor that was not true about me.
Porsha admitted during the first episode that she questioned Kordell about his sexuality prior to the marriage and Kordell says that is a blatant lie. In fact, he says that HE was the one who brought them up to her.
She never asked me.When I was dating my wife, I would say maybe two to three weeks into our relationship, we was staying over at her condo. I said I want to talk to you about something real quick if you don’t mind. I said you know,’we having fun and we like each other and we’re about to move forward in this relationship.
And I’m like, I just want you know there were rumors about me way back in the day.’ [I brought it up] Because I wanted her to know so she doesn’t get caught off guard with the foolishness and people start seeing us getting serious or whatever…She said my brother kinda mentioned some stuff. Cause her brother thought I was married…..So when she responded to me, she was like, ‘alright no big deal.I know a lot of guys who are gay.’ I said no, that don’t have nothing to do with me. I’m telling you about a rumor,that was out,that’s floating around about me before you get caught up into this relationship and find this out from the backside,or sideswiped or whatever.
