“It Belongs To Me”: Porsha Stewart Talks Keeping Kordell’s Last Name And Being “Less Than Smart”
So Porsha Stewart was on The Wendy Williams Show today and she was asked a little bit of everything about her marriage to Kordell Stewart. A few things that stuck out to us during this sit-down was Wendy calling her “less than smart” more than once, her statements about the conversations she had with Kordell about him possibly being gay, and of course, why she says the last name Stewart belongs to her and her plans to keep it. Here’s the tea that was spilled:
When speaking with Wendy about how she lives with her mom now that she has split from her husband, and how she’s even taken her mother’s master bedroom (which we saw last night) while moms sleeps in the guest room, Wendy had to give Porsha the real about behaving “less than smart” and being a little too spoiled as a woman in her 30s.
Porsha Stewart: “She knows I’m used to having a nice space and not that her guest room wasn’t accommodating, but she wanted me to feel extra, extra comfortable. My mom totally spoils me.”
Wendy Williams: “I’m going to talk very honest…Your behavior is less than smart. From my perspective as a fan, you are a gorgeous woman who has the world at your feet. You have no children, which is a plus in this particular situation. I think you should live on your own. It seems like you’ve been coddled and spoiled by your mother and Kordell and that never helps us as women when we get out in the world.”
Porsha went on to say that while her mother does spoil her, she always gives her the real that she might not want to hear. So I wonder what her mom thinks about Porsha’s decision to keep Kordell’s last name after all their ugliness. While talking with Wendy, it didn’t sound like she was doing it because as a reality star, that’s the name people know her by. Rather, she said that marriage changed her, and since she became a new woman as Mrs. Stewart, she plans to be Ms. Stewart.
“I’m going to keep Stewart. A lot of people say, “Why?! Give him his name!” It’s not his name, it’s my name. I was Porsha Williams at one part in my life before I got married. Marriage has taught me so much. I’m a whole other woman now so I’m going to own that last name. It belongs to me.”
Porsha also opened up about the gay rumors about Kordell, which she said she found out about after bringing him to meet her family. She says “Whether he is gay or on the downlow that had nothing to do with our breakup quite honestly.”
“He was a retired football player so I didn’t know about him until he came to a family event. My uncle was taking pictures so I found out at that point. A couple family events later on I kept hearing so much about it that I said ‘I’m going to talk to him about it. There’s no way I can move to the next step and not talk to him about this.’
We were in the car on the way home. He was just very detailed about the whole situation, and at the end of it, he basically said there was no records so I guess it can’t be true because there was no records. I don’t know, take what you want from that.”
And what does she think of the fact that some people (including Wendy who once again called her “less than smart”) believe she isn’t so bright?
“I can say this though, last season I understand that I came off as a little airy and all that but that was me because I showed one side. I was being a loving, catering wife so people didn’t see who I really am.”
Very interesting interview, ya’ll. If you didn’t get to see it, check it out on the next page and let us know your thoughts! And on a side-note, Kordell has already hit up Wendy and is ready to speak his mind on her couch. Should be messy…
