We told you yesterday that NeNe Leakes took to the RHOA Bravo blog to explain why she wants nothing to do with Marlo at this point, even though the two were at one point best friends, and Marlo played a huge role in NeNe’s second wedding to Gregg. Of course, NeNe was upset at the fact that Marlo was getting a little too close for comfort with Kenya, and basically said that any good friend wouldn’t fraternize with the enemy. But Marlo isn’t one to hold her tongue (as you probably saw on Sunday night’s episode), so she took to her own blog, Musings From The Boudoir, to tell her side of the story, and she threw quite a few jabs:
Divas and Divos, I’m doing my best to be the one to take the high road, but these last few weeks have been filled with lots of shade and haterade from people promoting products from Donald Trump’s hair emporium!
Say what you will about me, but I’m always going to be real. I’m always going to be that Woman who will come straight from the heart with no chaser and no BS. I’ve never claimed to be perfect, flawless or without regrets. Who is? Definitely not the fake bleached blond with the bold ambitions! She talks about my past incarcerations, her past includes pole sliding, lap dancing, lights, cameras and action! Which one of us is worse? Both of us have come a long way since then haven’t we? Good thing we took advantage of “opportunities.”
I’ll never forget where I came from. It’s what keeps me grinding towards a future of bigger and better things. That’s why I became so emotional when confronting the drag queen impersonator. When I went to speak to her I genuinely wanted to express my disappointment that I hadn’t been asked to join her team with the other bridesmaids. That really hurt me. But in order to get past it, I wanted to initiate a truce. Sometimes friends have disagreements, and then they forgive and forget. I have said many times I looked up to her like a big sister and valued our relationship, so I wanted to break the ice, kiss and make up. However, when the water was thrown at me, along with the nasty attitude, I wasn’t having it! I didn’t need to kiss her a$$ because she didn’t bring me up. When she met me at my boutique I was already that girl who styled her, (on a budget) for season 2. And at the time, she was on team I.O.U, NOT team Rich!
I didn’t become a stylist yesterday. I’ve been a fashion trendsetter since I was mini Marlo and if it wasn’t for me, she’d still be rocking Dots jeans with Payless boots! No disrespect to the brands or those who wear them, but neither is known for their couture lines. I put her on and stepped her fashion game up. You’re welcomed! Why do you think she hired me to be the creative director for the wedding?
What person who is really secure about who she is feels the need to dictate what others can and can’t do if they are her friends? I didn’t sign the friend contract that said I agreed to be anybody’s possession. I guess Kenya, Kim and Sheree didn’t either. If she really believed she was in the spotlight, then why worry about others trying to steal her shine! Truly confident people never waste time or energy worrying about the next person on the come-up. The same way really rich people NEVER speak on their wealth and they definitely don’t silkscreen it in rhinestones across their chest! That’s what “new money” with no class does because they are faking the funk in the social circles of the well-to-do.
For the record, Ms. Marlo doesn’t wear knockoff designers or faux fur. In other words, I don’t like fake things or fake folks! Ain’t nobody got time for that! Real friends have ups and downs, but if they are “real,” then nothing and no one will be able to come between them. NeNe calls herself a “loyal” friend? I wonder if any of her other “ex” friends would agree with her on that. Doubt it! Even some of the friends on “Team Rich” see her in a different light because now they know her loyalty was a one way street and the only person benefitting from it was her!
I heard she wants nothing else to do with me, but because I’m against toupee abuse, I’m still willing to hook her up with Lawrence, Dawn or Kemya, three of ATL’s top hairstylist so she can free that small furry animal on her head. My people are on speed dial, just holla at ya girl! That’s what friends are for… Bloop!
She’s clearly vying for a shot on this show, because I’m sure this storyline will continue on until this season ends (whenever that will be).
On another note, Peter Thomas is also speaking out, but he’s doing so to defend Kordell Stewart from the public trashing him about the way he handled his divorce, and people calling him gay, rumors he said that Porsha threw fire on…
After over two months of asking: “Are they or aren’t they?” Kordell Stewart has finally shut down rumors that he’s dating “Braxton Family Values” star Towanda Braxton.
“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,” the former RHoA star told Tom Joyner. “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.”
“Towanda Braxton is a very nice lady. I had the opportunity to meet her and…no, we’re not dating.”
He adds that a simple photograph is what triggered all of the rumors, but he and Towanda are nothing more than acquaintances.
“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.”
What we find to be interesting, however, is the fact that Towanda has done multiple interviews since the rumors hit and not once did she ever try make it clear that they weren’t dating. Instead, she seemed to dance around the rumors like a giddy school girl, leading most of us to believe that there was something more there.
“That Was 100% Out Of Character”: Towanda Braxton Explains Why She Put Vince Herbert’s Finances On Blast
If you’ll recall, last week Towanda Braxton had everyone talking when she publicly dissed Tamar’s husband, Vince Herbert, on Twitter. Tamar and Towanda have had quite the bumpy relationship this season of Braxton Family Values, with many people saying that Towanda has been jealous of her little sister’s success. So some fans of Tamar’s took to Twitter last week and blasted Towanda, saying she was jealous that Tamar’s man is a multimillionaire, while hers (who she’s separated from) is a “bum.” That prompted Towanda’s response about Vince, which was:
@mslady57 check the web boo! He also owes 3.3 million to the irs…guess I’m jealous of that too huh?
Obviously that didn’t sit well with many people. But in an interview with our sister site, BOSSIP, Towanda said that while her statements were out of character, she only made them because Tamartians were making vicious comments about her kids:
I take a lot. I have tough skin and usually I laugh things off. I just have to admit that a lot of the Tamartians, most of them are extremely disrespectful and I didn’t care that they were attacking me, I didn’t care that they were attacking Andre, what I cared about was when they started attacking my kids. They said ‘I wish Towanda’s kids got raped and run over by a bus.’ See people didn’t see that stuff. They just saw what I wrote. So after that I have to say that was 100% out of character for Towanda to respond, but I wasn’t thinking about what was right and what was wrong at that moment I was just reacting and responding.
Towanda also shared that Tamar was very hurt by her statements, but did defend her on Twitter:
She was pissed! Rightfully so. We always have have a sister thread in our messages, so we got on that and I was in trouble because it was totally out of character for me, until I explained, “Hey these children are attacking your niece and your nephew.” Then they understood. Like ‘Okay, we get it. We wouldn’t have done it that way but we get it.’
Despite all that, Towanda does say that while what she said was mean-spirited, the news about Vince’s finances is not private family business–it’s all over the web:
…a lot of people are like ‘Towanda, you just blasted the family business!’ I didn’t tell family business. That was already on the web. This was public knowledge before I said anything ladies and gentlemen. I didn’t divulge any secrets of the Braxton family. I don’t do that. It’s just like with the Traci situation, I didn’t say ‘Hey y’all this what’s going on, Traci told me blah blah blah.’ I don’t do that. Allegedly Traci’s husband had a kid out of wedlock — it was on the web, it wasn’t anything I found out from her.
And Towanda did clear up rumors about her relationship with Kordell. She said they are friends…but you never know what the future will hold:
I met Kordell at an event and I thought he was a nice guy. We’re just friends. Let me just make it clear. We’re definitely friends. Once I met him there, you know when it’s like the beginning stages and you’re trying to get to know a person, it wasn’t a love connection and I think it was partially because of my situation. [Being separated and not divorced.] A lot of guys are like that and that’s where he is.

As questions continue to swirl about his sexual orientation, retired Pittsburgh Steelers star Kordell Stewart is making yet another attempt to defend his sexuality.
“Too many beautiful women in the world, to be indulging in a sexual relationship with another man,” Kordell told friend and radio co-worker Shanae Hall before she set him up on a blind date. “So if that’s what they chose to do, on everything I love, that’s not even a thought.”
Now that his divorce has been finalized, the 41-year-old single father says he’s open to dating again. He adds that he doesn’t plan on settling for less than an 8 on the physical attraction scale.
“She don’t have to be a 10, but for sure no less than an 8. Again, an 8 is different.”
“My thing is, as long as she takes care of herself. Really, that’s the gist of it. As long as she takes care of herself, I’m good,” he added. “I wanna enjoy looking at you too. I don’t wanna look at your brain because I can’t see it.”
As for which physical qualities a woman must absolutely have, Kordell says having a curvaceous shape is crucial.
“An a** is mandatory. Yeah,the body has to have curves.”
He went on to say that while looks are important, he also wants someone who can stimulate him on a deeper level.
“We all want to be psychologically stimulated. My loins get to moving. For me, it’s mental for me, it’s not necessarily always physical. But I would like to psychologically indulge into ‘okay, wow.’”

When you have four sisters, there’s bound to be drama at some point, and if you’re a fan of Braxton Family Values, you may have witnessed some tension between Towanda and Tamar and the sisters as of late.
Well if Towanda wasn’t already feeling some type of way, it all came out on Twitter the other night when a fan accused her of being jealous. A fan tweeted:
“And she can’t help it that her husband is a multimillionaire and yours is a bum! #bvf @towandabraxton #jealous,”
Well she must have hit a nerve, because Towanda quickly fired back:
“@mslady57 check the web boo! He also owes 3.3 million to the irs…guess I’m jealous of that too huh?”
While we can understand Towanda catching feelings, we’d think she’d be littler more supportive and throw a little less shade at her brother-in-law’s financial troubles.
She might be in her feelings since Kordell Stewart, whom she was rumored to be dating, recently shut down those rumors publicly. According to Bossip, on a recent taping of the Tom Joyner Morning Show, Stewart denied any romantic dealings with Towanda:
“Towanda Braxton is a nice lady. I had the opportunity to meet her and no, we’re not dating.”
Stewart divorced Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams last year.
Reports reveal that Tamar’s husband Vince owes over $3 million dollars in back taxes. We don’t understand why these celebrities keep playing with Uncle Sam. He finds everyone, celebrity or not. Either way, Towanda’s being messy with family matters. We hope the sisters can stop throwing the shade and go back to sharing the love.
Earlier this month we told you about a few rumors that have been circulating about “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Porsha Williams being pregnant. Before Porsha could even respond to the rumors, her ex-husband, Kordell Stewart, quickly responded, making it clear that if she pregnant, he’s definitely not the child’s father.
“I am not the father of that child,” he told Atlanta’s 92.9 The Game radio show.
After remaining silent regarding the rumors for nearly a week, the 30-something reality star finally took to Instagram to address the allegations. It turns out she’s not pregnant, but she did express that she would like to be someday.
“Bringing a child into this word is amazing and hopefully God will bless me with that gift,” she wrote in a caption beneath a photograph of herself post workout, flaunting her washboard abs. “But despite the rumors as you can see I am not pregnant.”
If you recall, Porsha revealed last season that she had gotten pregnant during her marriage to Kordell, but unfortunately, she miscarried. She later admitted that it was difficult for her to open up about such a sensitive subject on national television.
“First let me say it took a lot of prayer and thinking to decide to share that part of my life with you all,” she wrote in a Bravo blog last season. “As you now know, I decided to open-up because if my story can help one female to take notice of what her body is telling her, if my story can cause one women to ask her doctor for a fibroid test prior to trying to conceive, then it will not have been told in vain.”
“I was really devastated following the loss of my first pregnancy, not just a physical pain, but an aching sense of loss and loneliness like my body had let me down,” she continued. “I will faithfully continue to stay prayerful that I will become a mother for the second time. I learned that it’s not my timing but the big man upstairs who holds my destiny in his hands.”
Hopefully Porsha will get the family that she’s hoping for someday.
While most folks were busy worrying that “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Porsha Williams couldn’t afford to live in her fabulous new 8,000 square foot home, it looks like they also should’ve been worrying about her fancy high-rise condo in Atlanta.
According to TMZ, the newly divorced reality star lived in a high-rise condo complex in Atlanta and she has unfortunately fallen behind on her homeowner’s dues. It’s being reported that she actually owes $17, 959 in unpaid dues and now the homeowner’s association is taking legal action against her. In court documents filed by the association, they’re requesting that the aspiring singer’s bank accounts be frozen and that the money that goes into her account is diverted to pay off her past due homeowner’s bills.
At this point, it’s being speculated that Porsha’s only real sources of income right now is the $5,000 per month that she gets in spousal support from her ex-husband, Kordell, and the money she gets from appearing on “Real Housewives of Atlanta.” We don’t know how true this is, but it’s also being reported that Porsha is back to living with her mother, which means things may not have worked out at her new home.
Porsha has yet to comment on the allegations. We can only hope that this is all some sort of mix-up and that the rumors are not true. We really want to see Porsha win. Anyhoo, we will keep you all posted as this story develops.
It’s difficult keeping a new relationship on the down low as it is, but having four sisters and a reality show has to make things that much more difficult. Rumors of a budding romantic love affair involving “Braxton Family Values” star Towanda Braxton and newly divorced retired NFL player Kordell Stewart have been circulating for weeks. A few days ago Towanda broke her silence about the rumors during an interview with Power 105.1′s “The Breakfast Club.” Though she didn’t really give up too much information, it seems quite apparent that there’s a little something there.
Towanda also did a little dodging during an appearance on “The Arsenio Hall Show” that she recently made with her sisters and mother. When Arsenio asked about her relationship with Kordell, Towanda continued to play coy.
“We’re friends. He’s a nice guy. I like him like I like you,” Towanda told Arsenio, who clearly wasn’t buying her response.
“We went to a movie at the same time,” she continued, seemingly attempting to downplay what was believed to be their first public date night outing at the “Grudge Match” premiere.
Towanda seemed to keep her giddiness under control until her sister, Trina, began teasing her about the rumors.
“Does this mean you’re dating Kordell?” Trina probed, giving Towanda and the other sisters a good chuckle.
Oh, sisterly love.
Watch their exchange below.
Unfortunately, reality TV celebrities realities aren’t that great! They’re under curse — a curse that causes them to end their marriages in nasty divorces!
In fact, there are so many reality TV stars who married and divorced each other — prior to and during their reality TV superstardom — that all of them couldn’t possibly fit into this list. But Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are currently going through a mess of a divorce, and Porsha Williams and Kordell Stewart messy divorce was finalized just last month. MadameNoire is recapping the many celebrity couples who found fame on reality TV series and fell victim to failing marriages — a guilty pleasure of juiciness for the cameras and audiences to witness.
A few weeks ago word got out that ex-NFLer Kordell Stewart may have rebounded from his recent divorce from his ex-wife, Porsha Williams, with “Braxton Family Values” star Towanda Braxton. As previously reported, rumors about their relationship began swirling after the two were spotted together at the “Grudge Match” premiere in Atlanta. Since our initial report, Porsha commented on the rumors about Kordell’s new relationship and offered nothing but well wishes.
“I’m happy for him. I like Towanda,” Porsha said. “I watch the Braxtons and I love Tamar. If it works for him, good.”
During her recent interview Power 105.1′s “The Breakfast Club,” Towanda responded to Porsha’s well wishes.
“I thought that was sweet,” she said. “We should have tea.”
Though she didn’t directly confirm whether or not she’s seeing Kordell romantically, her comments do seem to point to a budding relationship.
“We’ve been friends for a moment,” Towanda said. “The only thing I can confirm is that he’s a really nice guy.”
She also dodged questions about his sexuality.
“I don’t know about his sexuality at the moment. I’ve never been with a gay man in my life.”
