We see there’s no ring, so is the divorce final?
No the divorce isn’t final. We’re legally separated. He’s there with the kids. I’m so busy, I’m always back and forth. When I’m there I am a hands on mom, but when I’m not home I think it’s important to have another parent there and not having someone else raising your children. Me personally I just don’t agree with that. He’s there with the kids, he loves the kids, some men are financially able to care for their kids but they’re not physically there. He’s physically there. He’s working part-time at AT&T for over a year, but no one knew that. He’s still writing. He just released a new book called “Fried Fish” about a lesbian affair. It’s not about me ladies and gentlemen! He just released it on Amazon.
Do you think it’s over or could you possibly work it out?
I’m not trying to predict the future, but I can say that as of right now this moment today — no.
When the Kordell rumors came out what did he say?
Nothing. We have a good relationship, we can talk about anything. He said, ‘He seems like a nice guy.’
Where did you and Kordell meet?
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.
His divorce was quick…
I have to speak on something that I do know. It wasn’t as quick as everyone thinks.
Porsha said she had no idea…
Did she not know, really? Just sayin’ he my friend. That’s my friend y’all.
There have been all these rumors
Horrible rumors, rumors.
Especially with Porsha being in the media…
I don’t like to say anything negative about anybody else like that. I just think, I wasn’t in their marriage, I can only go by what my friend and I have discussed, it’s a little disheartening that it ended so bitter. Just like my situation. When my divorce is final I’m not going to go out there and say “I thought that he was…” because I didn’t think that when we were together. Why say that when we’re apart? I would never ever ever do that. He’s a really really nice guy and I think people need to see the other side of Kordell.
He doesn’t seem eager to be in front of the camera
He’s not trying to be in the public eye like that. You have to respect that.
How often would you say that you talk to each other and what kind of things do you have in common?
We talk about sports, we talk about families, we talk about relationships. We’re friends, we talk about a lot of things.
And how often? You’re not getting those “Good morning Towanda” text messages?
Could be, could be not… who’s to say? Honest to God at this point we’re friends. Just friends.
But when your divorce is final?
Who knows? Who knows who I might date after that? Because everybody is not comfortable with my situation. When a woman tells you she’s separated, it’s true. Not the same with a man. My mom says the only man who doesn’t cheat is President Obama and right now…
Wait you think Obama?
I would be Olivia Pope for Obama. There’s a lot of women who would be. But I just know that I can’t because first of all my mama would beat me and second, Michelle… You know what I’m saying.
That’s your type?
I just like smart men. I love smart men.
Some women are more about looks or money.
Well I have to be honest, I have to be 100% with you, but you have to think about your offspring sometimes. Not saying you have to be with them forever, but you have to be about your offspring sometimes and our genes match.
So would you have another kid?
Listen, I have a boy and a girl. What else do I need? Tamar says she doesn’t want another kid but if she wanted me to I will carry it for her. Just like I said before, the offer still stands. I love my sisters. Whatever they need I will be there for them.
Did it ever occur that Kordell could be using you for publicity?
If it was anybody else who is flashy, maybe, but not Kordell. He’s not a flashy guy. I want everybody to see the other side of Kordell because there is another side. He’s a really nice guy, I have to respect the fact that he wasn’t comfortable with my situation so we immediately went to the friend zone. But he was diggin’ me… I just want to let the record show he told my friend, “She fine… you gotta hook me up.”
Is there anything else you want people to know?
Just because I’m not flashy and showing everything that I’m doing doesn’t mean I’m not doing anything. Even on the show people don’t really see everything that I’m doing. They don’t know I have a secret squirrel school for personal executive assistants, they don’t see that I’m a silent partner to a company called ILikeItFit.com, a fitness company. I have my own publishing company. I’m the one that published Andre’s book. I have GNO, Girl’s Night Out that is a margarita company. I’m starting another company called WHAM – wardrobe, hair and makeup styling. And I’m acting. I’m doing hosting for ASPIRE, I have two sitcoms on the table, I’m just crossing my fingers because I had two callbacks.
Would you do another reality show, a “Housewives of Atlanta” for instance?
I’ve been asked, about three months ago I was asked, but contractually I can’t. I don’t know. I think that if we ever decided not to do BFV anymore I would probably really focus on my businesses and my acting career.
Well there you have it. You can watch Towanda tonight on the season finale of “Braxton Family Values” at 9pm EST on WeTV.
