Former football player Kordell Stewart may be more famous now for his time on The Real Housewives of Atlanta than he ever was as an NFL player. From his divorce from housewife Porsha Stewart to the gay rumours that have plagued him for years, Stewart has had to regroup after reality TV battered his reputation. After a previous appearance on the Tom Joyner Morning Show when Stewart now famously said “I wasn’t gay when I brought that six and half carat yellow diamond ring,” and got into an on-air tiff with Sybil Wilkes, he’s now a listener favorite. This morning he came on the Tom Joyner Morning Show to address new rumors – this time, that he’s dating fellow reality star Towanda Braxton. (Her sister Tamar Braxton threw Kordell some shade recently, saying “I don’t think he’s a catch.” Ouch.) Here’s what Kordell had to say.
TOM JOYNER: Your publicist said you wanted to come on to address some rumors?
KORDELL STEWART: All kind of rumors have been out there for a long, long time. I’ve cleared up one but my commitment and my relationship is truly with parenthood and raising my son. I’ve gone through a relationship and we’ve seen that relationship spiral downhill. And to invest in a relationship at this time, I don’t think it would be helpful for my son.
Tom Joyner: Are you dating Towanda Braxton?
Towanda Braxton is a very nice lady. I had the opportunity to meet her and…no, we’re not dating.
SYBIL WILKES: Did you go to the movies and just hang out?
No, No. So how did that rumor get started? As you see on the blogs, we were at an event. You guys know Big Tigga from the radio. He and I were hosting the Grudge Match – a red carpet event. And we took a picture together. And it just shot off from there. Reality TV, first thing you know it, it’s a big story. And one thing leads to another. But a nice lady. I got the opportunity to meet her. She’s cool people. But I got a lot going on over here. Again, my relationship is parenthood.
Tom: And Porsha being pregnant?
Kordell: I don’t know nothing about it. I heard about it. But to clarify, I’m not the father of that baby. If she is, I don’t know. That’s what I heard.
Tom: Valentine’s Day is tomorrow. Do you have a Valentine?
Kordell: I sent out a gift to someone that I talk to.
Tom: You don’t want to say who?
Kordell: You can’t say who, man.
Sybil: Is she in the public?
Kordell: Even if I wanted to go on a date, we couldn’t do nothing. I got ice on the ground out here. It’s a state of emergency.
Tom: Is she local?
Sybil: Are you officially divorced from Porsha?
Kordell: Yeah. That divorce happened a week before Thanksgiving. Officially.
Sybil: Your voice got a little high there. (Laughs)
Tom: Anything else you want to clear up?
Kordell: I just want to say… Sybil, I love you. I love you, Sybil.
Sybil: You know what? I have nothing against you, Kordell. I want you to be happy and I want Porsha to be happy and to get all this cleared up and I’m glad you had the opportunity.
Kordell: I appreciate it. It’s about me and my little guy, though. That’s what it’s about.
Tom and Sybil: Happy Valentine’s Day, Kordell.
Kordell: Ya’ll too.
