Kordell Claps Back: Talks Real Reason Behind The Divorce & Those Pesky Gay Rumors
The season premiere of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” ended up making some subtle yet strong allegations about Kordell’s sexuality as the reason he and Porsha are no longer together because according to her, he couldn’t tell her why he wanted to suddenly end their marriage.
Well, in an effort to clear his “good name,” Kordell sat down with the “Ryan Cameron Morning Show” in Atlanta to discuss the real reason they got a divorce, whether he’s day or not and how he didn’t approve of the way Porsha treated his son after she became a reality tv star.
On Porsha abandoning the household and his son
“For me it’s all about keeping my son’s mind in the right place through all this foolishness that’s going on. Whether it be, my wife still today, on paper, running her mouth, saying the things that she found out about the show on Twitter. To the mama being on the show that I only saw my wife one time in the hospital when we had our miscarriage.
My wife had said to me many times after coming home two in the morning, three in the morning maybe four in the morning because she’s trying to hustle like the NeNe’s of the world. Everybody wants to be NeNe. You know my hours 2-6. Through all that I’ll get home and my son will say, “Is Mommy coming home or did she make it home yet? Talking about Porsha. I would say she’s doing her thing. He would wake up in the morning and ask “Did mommy make it home?” And I would say yes, she’s sleeping. After a couple times of that happening and me not knowing…
When my son asked me this these few times, I had to figure out how do I make him understand what’s going on. He doesn’t deserve to have to deal with that when there’s two parents in the home. If anything, we should be eating dinner together, finding a way to get it done, or making sure that when the kid goes to bed that you go in there and check on the kid. Kiss him goodnight. Even if it’s 3 in the morning, you still give him a kiss so he can feel your presence! I had to deal with that as a kid. My mom passed away at 11. My dad did it. He did it the right way.
I have custody of my kid. It’s my obligation as a dad, as a parent, to make sure that my baby is good. And I say my because you see where it is today. If I say our, the our of the other half is not doing her part to even call and check on the kid.
And I ask the question ‘Babe, what’s the deal, why you coming home–what’s going on? “What do you mean? I’m grown. I do what I want to do.” That’s a quote from Porsha, from my wife. So when that happens, I’m kind of messed up a lil bit because I never had this gangsta-talk to me from my woman before. It’s supposed to be about the household.”
Her being disrespectful and how the cameras violated his manhood
When I was done playing football I wanted to make sure the monies I made, I wanted to inject that in my family-to-be. My son was already here. Then, Porsha came on the scene. She married into the Stewart family. I didn’t marry into the Williams family. That’s her people. I went out my way to make sure we were situated. As if I was still playing the game because I was capable of purchasing in cash my house for my family. So when you come out your mouth and show that type of disrespect, you have no idea how much that burned me up inside. I’ve been about team concepts all my life. I’m all about everybody pulling their weight, doing their part. The person that suffers if people don’t pull their weight is the child.
When I allowed Bravo in the house, I went against the grain of what I represent. I’m private. I had to compromise everything about my manhood from the standpoint of–I’m going to let my wife do what she do….and that’s it.
