Keep it on the down low, nobody has to know…
Atlanta’s newest houswife, Porsha Stewart may act like her life is nothing but glitter and gold but if rumors are true, everything that glitters might not be straight.
Porsha’s hubby, Kordell Stewart is a seasoned NFL pro. The New Orleans native was once the star QB for the Pittsburgh Steelers, however Stewart quit the game after being labeled as gay by many of his team-mates and friends.
Via Straight From The A reports:
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.
Plaxico Burress even spoke about the rumors that dogged the quarterback during their mutual time in Pittsburgh and referenced the situation in his memoirs.
In a 2008 radio interview with Tim Benz of 105.9 The X in Pittsburgh, Burress stated:
“It had to be tough on him personally. I didn’t call him gay or anything like that. . . . I think that’s one of the reasons why he really couldn’t become the player that he wanted to be. . . . It has to play on you mentally a little bit.”
But that ain’t it…
In the 1997 season, Kordell called a team meeting specifically to reiterate that he wasn’t gay.
He’s said to have gone into details about specific sex acts that he liked and also wanted to reassure his team mates of his heterosexuality, stating: “I believe in Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.”
Stewart also he allegedly warned team mates: “You’d better not leave your girlfriends around me, because I’m out to prove a point!”
In 1999, Sports Illustrated addressed the topic of Stewart’s sexuality. Up until that point, Stewart had declined to discuss private life, but he recounted to SI that the team meeting was prompted by friends who told him of rumors circulating about him being gay.
Kordell is now happily married to his new “housewife” Porsha, a former video chick who is dumber than a box of rocks but looks great on his arm. Kordell also has a son, Syre, from a previous relationship. Married and with a child, he can’t possibly be gay…. right?
