Last week Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Stewart revealed that her divorce from estranged husband, Kordell Stewart, would be finalized soon.
“In the next month, it should be actually over,” the bubbly reality star said during a recent interview.
Although the drama surrounding her actual divorce from Kordell may be coming to a close, it appears that their bickering may go one for little bit longer. Kordell recently did an interview with Atlanta’s V-103, insisting that the pair had plenty of marital issues before he filed for a “surprise” divorce last year—including Porsha’s alleged failure to become “comfortable” with raising his son.
“I didn’t hear the interview, and I really don’t care to comment on anything Kordell has to say. He’s saying it for a reason and wants everybody to think of me in one way. At the end of day, Kordell knew who I was to him and what I did and how I felt about his son. I don’t have to justify that at all,” Porsha said last week.
To make matters worse, during the most recent episode of RHOA, Porsha hinted that her ex-husband may have been physically abusive at some point and referred to him as a “queen.” After all of that, it seems clear that it was Kordell’s turn to “take a jab” and it appears that is exactly what he did. Last night the former Pittsburgh Steelers player shared an image to his Instagram page that read:
“No hoodrat formed against me shall prosper.”
He later erased the post. Now, we probably wouldn’t bet our last 10 bucks that Kordell was taking shots at Porsha, but honestly, who else would he be referring to?

Many of us would agree that reality TV is rarely a good thing for celebrity couples who actually desire to stay together. But despite calling off her engagement, giving her rapper fiancé back his engagement ring and willingly airing out their dirty laundry for the world to see, Marry the Game star Tiffney Cambridge says that being on television has actually helped her relationship with The Game (aka Jayceon Taylor).
“I would say it helped it. I definitely don’t think that it did anything negative, but I think that being able to see yourself outside of yourself, and really watch how you handle situations and how you react, is very helpful,” Tiffney told Necole Bitchie.
“A lot of the times, these shows will tear your family apart or tear your relationship apart. I don’t really think that’s been the case for us. I have really been be able to look at our show and get a good retrospective thought process going on. Like, ‘Wow! That’s you? You really went through that, you handled yourself well girl!’” she continued.
The elementary school teacher also opened up about what pushed her to call off the engagement and how she felt about giving Jayceon his ring back.
“It was very difficult, because I want to be married. I didn’t give him the ring back because I don’t want to be with him or I don’t want to marry him. I just want our focuses to be the same. I don’t want it to be about anything materialistic. I don’t want it to be about a wedding ring, I want it to be about the commitment the ring signifies. What it stands for,” Tiffney confessed.
“How you gonna buy someone a 10k ring with a 2k commitment? You walking around with this big ol’ 10k ring on that you would think the person that gave it to you would make a commitment to be as big as the ring they gave you. Thats what we’ve been working on. Tryna get the size of the ring and commitment to match up. [Laughs].”
She went on to discuss why she believes that on-again, off-again boo isn’t exactly prepared to make a “10k commitment” just yet.
“Because Jayceon is still young, and he is a rapper! They like to go out all of the time. They like to club all the time. They got women around them all the time. They can be disrespectful at times. There are just certain things that a husband should and shouldn’t do. If everybody follows him on Twitter and IG, I mean you can look at it and say to yourself, ‘Okay, if this is my husband would I want my husband to be doing this right here?’ When you’re somebody’s husband you’re supposed to govern yourself accordingly, there are certain things that you just can’t do. We are just trying get him to that point.”
It’s been a rough season for reality TV couple Rasheeda and Kirk Frost. Infidelity, unwanted pregnancies and the inability to see eye-to-eye are issues that can severely damage even the strongest of marriages. Thankfully, it appears that the pair were able to weather the storm. Yesterday, we told you that Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star were finally able to bring their new baby boy, Karter, home from the hospital. Today, they opened up in an interview with Hip Hop Weekly, expressing that their new bundle has brought so much joy to their family. They also shared how they plan to take things one day at time in regard to their marital problems.
Kirk on being there for baby Karter’s birth:
“Yes. I was there from the very beginning. Rasheeda woke up one morning and said, “Oh, it’s time.” She just knew. She was cramping, etc. and she said, “it’s time to go.” I wasn’t nervous. It’s just that the baby came ahead of the due date, September 6, so we weren’t totally ready. We still had to put the bed together, etc. and get organized, but now, I’m excited.”
Kirk on airing out their dirty laundry on national television:
“A lot of people try to hide things and we chose not to do it. We were 100 percent real with it and let it be what it is. I think that people have to see me as a husband and a manager and a lot of them only see the relationship side. I did say the things and they were outrageous but at the end of the day it’s in God’s hands and He knows what’s best.”
Rasheeda on working through their marital issues:
“It’s an everyday thing. It’s a work in progress. When the child comes into play, it’s a feeling you can’t explain. Although a lot of things had been shown and seen, I already knew that when it comes to be a father, this would be a role that he’s always known to play. Things were put into perspective on television that he was not a good father but he’s a great father and my older son Kai is extremely happy to have this little brother. It’s a good time for us and I don’t want anything to get on my nerves.”
It’s great to see that the two are attempting to mend the broken fences in their marriage. The road to reconciliation can sometimes be a lengthy one, but at least they’re willing to give it a shot.

We’ve all watched reality TV shows like “The Bachelor” or any of the “Real Housewives” series and not given it a second thought or batted an eyelash when word came out that one of the couples on the show had broken up. But what about those couples whose relationships have stood the test of time — or at least the test of the cameras and survived the ever so prevalent reality TV curse? Surely they deserve a shout out for their union surviving in a world where audiences tune in to watch their intimate lives day in and day out. Lets look at the celeb reality couples who’ve made their love last under the scrutiny of television cameras and viewers.
I Get Why People Would Believe That: Evelyn Lozada Talks Being Blamed For Provoking The Chad Ochocino Assault
When news of Chad and Evelyn’s physical altercation first leaked back in August, people wasted no time accusing the “Basketball Wives” star of initiating the fight. People even went as far as to say that she got what she deserved. After watching her erratic behavior on the last season of “Basketball Wives”, it was difficult for many to view her as a victim when they tuned in week after week only to see her victimize her fellow cast members. In an interview with Vibe, Evelyn shared that she understands why people blamed her for the incident and accepts full responsibility for her actions last season.
“I felt that I was getting blamed for the incident happening and it was hard…but at the same time I take full responsibility for putting this perception of me out there that I just argue and fight. That’s what most people connect me with, especially with last season. So it’s like ‘Oh, okay well maybe she did something to deserve what happened.’ And I’m like ‘I didn’t do anything’. “
She also expressed how grateful she was that Chad spoke out and cleared up any misconceptions that she may have initiated the fight.
“He did an interview… he was honest and real. I finally felt relieved that he said I didn’t have anything to do with what happened that day. He takes full responsibility…”
I believe that the ability to view a situation from multiple viewpoints exhibits growth. Since the incident and of course her life-changing encounter with Iyanla Vanzant, Ev appears to be continuing down a path of positivity. Hopefully she keeps this in mind while the cameras are rolling and that temper of hers wants to flare up.
Check out footage of her interview on the next page. What did you think when people began blaming Evelyn for Chad assaulting her?
You Know What They Say About Making Assumptions: Evelyn Lozada Explains Her “Date” With Chad Johnson
Last month, reality star Evelyn Lozada made headline after headline as she began expressing how she felt about her ex-husband Chad Johnson and even revealed that she felt he deserved another chance. Eyebrows raised as news broke that she and Chad made their first public appearance together at a Florida courthouse where she requested that a judge lift the no-contact restraining order that she had against the former Miami Dolphins player. Once this occurred, most folks assumed that news of a reunion between the reality stars and a resurrection of the unaired show, Chad & Ev wasn’t far behind. A few days ago, photographs surfaced of Chad and Evelyn on what appeared to be a pre New Year’s Eve date. Considering the fact that only days prior to being spotted together, Chad stated that he and Ev were living together via his Twitter page, it was difficult not to believe that their little outing only confirmed their reunion. However, Evelyn is saying that the outing was not at all what it appeared to be and that she and Chad are not back together. In a blog post featured on her website entitled About Last Night, she provides an explanation regarding her date with Chad.
In the post, she shared that she felt it necessary to address the photographs because things were getting a “wee bit out of control”. She went on to express the reason that she and Chad were spotted out together was because she was attending his appreciation dinner with his daughter.
“I attended a dinner with Chad’s daughter, not only because I love baby girl like my own, but to support Chad and his fan appreciation dinner. While at the dinner, several photos popped up on the Internet of Chad and I holding hands, while in the process of blessing the food.”
She also addressed the current status of their relationship and whether or not the two are actually living together as Chad previously stated.
“I care for Chad, we are friends and we love one another, however, we are still separated, not living under the same roof and working on ourselves because we have a long way to go. This is a normal and realistic process for anyone and I don’t know what the future holds for me, but I know God holds it and I’m taking things one day at a time.”
While the photographs that surfaced did appear to tell the whole story, her explanation does seem to make sense. We’ll say her story checks out, for now anyway. We hope that she’s sticking to her original feelings that a romantic reunion probably isn’t the best idea considering the positive strides she’s been attempting to make lately, but we all know how it is once you allow an ex to get his foot in the door. Next thing you know, he’s moving in.
What do you make of all of this?
Evelyn Wants Contact, She Gets Contact: Judge Lifts BBW’s Restraining Order Against Chad At Her Request
Former Miami Dolphins player, Chad Johnson and ex-wife Evelyn Lozada made their first public appearance together since their extremely ugly divorce yesterday in court. Why were they in court you ask? Thankfully, they weren’t there pressing assault charges against each other. Instead, they were doing something remotely opposite. They were there to lift the restraining order that was put in place after the two had a fallout over Chad’s infidelity, which ended in a head-butt lifted.
A video recovered by TMZ depicts Evelyn and Chad standing before a judge in a Florida courtroom as the judge proceeds to ask Evelyn if she feels threatened by Chad or is afraid of him. Evelyn responds “no” each time and the judge honored her request and lifted the restraining order.
Now Im sure that while some are in shock after hearing this news, others aren’t as Ev has been hinting to multiple media outlets that she would like to begin talking to Chad again and how she believes he deserves a second chance. One can’t say for sure that Evelyn’s request to lift her restraining order against Chad will result in a romantic reunion between the two, but then again, the possibility is certainly there.
Just last week, Evelyn told Radar Online that it was difficult having a “no contact clause” with Chad because he still wears his wedding ring and expresses that he wants her back.
“I haven’t spoken to Chad, we can’t – we have a ‘no contact’ clause, but I hear things. He recently did an interview on ESPN and I saw clips of it but it wasn’t easy to watch because he is still wearing his wedding ring, and says he still wants to be married.”
Ironically though, she also told Rumor Fix that although she had some questions for him, she didn’t think that reconnecting the lines of communication was a good idea.
“He hasn’t tried to speak to me directly and I don’t think he is going to risk his freedom, I also don’t think it would be good for us.”
I guess she’s had a change of heart since then.
