Apparently, “RHOA” housewife Kenya Moore might have a point about fellow housewife Porsha Stewart’s legacy. The new housewife, who is married to former NFL star Kordell Stewart, is also the granddaughter of respected civil rights pioneer Hosea Williams. But as sharp-eyed “RHOA” fans discovered, Stewart has tarnished that legacy to some degree by appearing in the video for “Some Cut” for the Atlanta group Trillville, who hit with the song back in 2005. While we can’t show you the video as it doesn’t have a clean version, you can check out the clean audio version here.
While we’re side-eying Porsha’s pre-RHOA choices (doesn’t it remind you a little of Lauren London’s checkered past when she was dating the mayoral candidate on “Single Ladies”?) there’s always more drama on “RHOA” to look forward to. We’ll have to see how this one shakes on the show, if it’s ever brought up. In the meantime, here’s what Porsha had to say about what she brings to the table:
Porsha Stewart joined to the TJMS this morning to discuss her dislike for Kenya Moore, her husband Kordell Stewart, and much more.
Read the full transcription of the interview below.
TOM JOYNER: Porsha Stewart might be the breakout star right now for The Real Housewives of Atlanta?
J. ANTHONY BROWN: You have my vote.
TOM JOYNER: Good morning, Porsha.
PORSHA STEWART: Good morning, how y’all doing?
TOM JOYNER: Doing good. How you doing?
PORSHA STEWART: I’m doing well.
J. ANTHONY BROWN: Yes, you are.
PORSHA STEWART: I’m doing fine.
J. ANTHONY BROWN: Yes, you are. Yes, Lord.
PORSHA STEWART: Oh?! What is that about?
TOM JOYNER: Well, we saw you at the game in Birmingham where you did the National Anthem.
J. ANTHONY BROWN: When you sang the National Anthem.
PORSHA STEWART: Oh, yes.
TOM JOYNER: And the mic went out.
J. ANTHONY BROWN: And the mic went out.
TOM JOYNER: Twice.
PORSHA STEWART: It did. It was trying to hate on me.
J. ANTHONY BROWN: Mm-hmm. You’re that fine, that’s what I want to …
PORSHA STEWART: I’ll still take you to Church a little bit on the end.
TOM JOYNER: Yes, you did.
J. ANTHONY BROWN: Yeah, fine singer. Fine singer you are.
TOM JOYNER: Very fine.
PORSHA STEWART: Thank you.
TOM JOYNER: And you’re recently married to Kordell …
PORSHA STEWART: Kordell Stewart, yeah, we got married May 21st, 2011.
J. ANTHONY BROWN: Alright. And you have a new little slash?
PORSHA STEWART: Yes, we do. His name is Syre, he’s nine years old. He’s Kordell’s son, so I take him as my own.
TOM JOYNER: So how did you all meet?
PORSHA STEWART: We actually met here in Atlanta, my girlfriend Jamie had a birthday party and it was a place called Lucky’s. And I met him there, he was staring me down, he claimed he wasn’t staring at me, but he was. He says I was looking at him, but there was a TV above his head, see? So anyway he ended up playing shy guy and had his friend come talk to me. And we just, he got my number, and he was looking at me all deep in my eyes, and said, “Call me when you get home after the club.” You know, and I’m like, “Look, I got here on my own.” I said, “I can get home on my own.” But anyhow I called him and the rest is history. I mean we went to dinner and he was just so …
SYBIL WILKES : And your family was very excited that you were dating Kordell Stewart, huh?
PORSHA STEWART: They, you know, the women in my family they didn’t know who he was. He came to a family event, and my uncle was taking a lot of pictures of him. And then later on my brother was like, “Porsha, I used to play him on the video game all the time.” And so it was pretty exciting once they found out.
TOM JOYNER: When you said 265 days a year, oh.
SYBIL WILKES : Last night.
PORSHA STEWART: You know what I really meant? I really meant four hundred and 65 days a year. No, I’m joking, I was nervous. That’s my first time meeting Cynthia and Ne-Ne, and I’ve always just loved Cynthia and Ne-Ne as well, so it was just nerve-wracking.
SYBIL WILKES : And how are you feeling about Kenya?
PORSHA STEWART: Kenya, you know what? My expectations before I met her was that she was going to such a lady, so classy, you know, I was a little bitty girl when she won.
J. ANTHONY BROWN: Wow, that’s wild.
PORSHA STEWART: I really looked up to this lady, and I was looking forward to meeting her.
J. ANTHONY BROWN: How old? 105?
PORSHA STEWART: I was disappointed.
TOM JOYNER: Good one, Porsha, good one.
J. ANTHONY BROWN: Good one, Porsha.
PORSHA STEWART: Hey, you like that?
J. ANTHONY BROWN: you keep it going, don’t you?
TOM JOYNER: Yeah, I like that. Got it in there.
PORSHA STEWART: But, you know, everybody has, you know, I had a past, I had a past to where I am today, and she had a past, unfortunately her’s just made her bitter in the end, and, you know, I wish her well though.
J. ANTHONY BROWN: If you had to vote somebody off, who would it be?
SYBIL WILKES : Would it be Kenya?
PORSHA STEWART: It’s at a cross, what do y’all think? Y’all take a poll and …
TOM JOYNER: No, we asking you.
J. ANTHONY BROWN: We asking you, c’mon.
PORSHA STEWART: I guarantee you, it’s Kenya. I don’t vote her off the planet earth, I just vote her just away from me.
SYBIL WILKES : Away from you, not off the planet, just away from you.
PORSHA STEWART: Just away from me.
SYBIL WILKES : Oh, gosh. So I gather we can expect a lot more of that coming up for the rest of the season, huh?
PORSHA STEWART: You’ll have to stay tuned for sure. I mean, like I said, these are real life women relationships. A lot of us, I was introduced to some people and it didn’t work at all, and some ended up well, some ended up not forming a relationship at all, and probably never will have a relationship.
J. ANTHONY BROWN: Man, when the fine go at it playa.
SYBIL WILKES : I think we know which one that is, yeah.
PORSHA STEWART: I say tune in, but it’s going to be a heck of a season. You are definitely going to enjoy it.
SYBIL WILKES : Thank you so much. Good luck to you on Real Housewives of Atlanta, Porsha.
J. ANTHONY BROWN: The battle of the fine, yes Lord.
TOM: Don’t you love it, playa…
J. ANTHONY BROWN: Don’t you just love it.
TOM: The Fine.
PORSHA STEWART: Hey, I’m an Atlanta Peach, born and raised, you know how we are, we’re fine down here with cornbread.
