This season of Real Housewives of Atlanta has been pretty interesting. New couples have been introduced and one of which was Porsha & Kordell Stewart. Porsha adds a refreshing personality to the show. She doesn’t seem to take herself too seriously. She’s cute, carefree, and a tad bit ditzy. From the outside looking in she has almost the ideal life, married and happy trying to conceive a baby with her husband. Nothing can be as impeccable as it seems; hence the imperfections.
This morning while reading StraightFromTheA.com there was a blog about the Kordell Stewart. The blog talks about Porsha husband, the former NBA Steeler player, being gay.
For years, Kordell, a stellar quarterback who once played for the Pittsburgh Steelers, was plagued by talk that he frequented Schenley Park.,a Pittsburgh area park frequented by gay and transexual men.There was even talk that an officer had once witnessed Stewart engaging in gay sex in a limousine but because of his notoriety as the city’s star quarterback, the incident was swept under the rug.
Apparently as time went on, other reports of his alleged homosexual activity became “rumors” that never held any substantiated proof. Nobody dared to go on the record because even if the rumors were true, homosexuality isn’t illegal. That was during the period when ‘Don’t ask… don’t tell’ was the norm.
As a QB, it’s important for your team mates to protect you on the field, and being that most NFL players (especially back then) weren’t too “gay friendly,” there were times Stewart had to convince his own team that he wasn’t gay for his own protection on the field.
Who knows if this rumor is true. People say a lot of things, but where there is smoke there’s some fire.
