Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams has been all over the media regarding an altercation she had with Kenya Moore at the RHOA reunion. This time, it’s for a different reason. Sitting down with Access Hollywood, Porsha Williams opened about her marriage to Kordell Stewart in which she reveals that he hit her!
“The video Flatline does touch on domestic violence and some abuse I encountered in my marriage. It’s not exact to what I went through, because, honestly, what I went through was a little bit worse in some instances.”
She was then asked if Kordell hit her in which Porsha replied,
“Yeah. There were several different occasions that this happened. When you’re in an abusive situation, it kind of just builds, and it starts to get worse and worse. And people ask me, why didn’t you tell anybody or call the police or what have you? I thought that I could make it better. I honestly thought after each situation I would change this or I would change that and therefore the outcome wouldn’t be the same. It doesn’t work like that. I’m still realizing now that a lot of what happened, it wasn’t my fault. I blamed myself a lot for that.”
Porsha even admits that Kordell did admit to the abuse during their divorce case.
“When we were going through the divorce process, we had to sit in deposition hearing, and there wasn’t denial, he didn’t deny it. A lot of women who are in situations like I was in, I wanted to make it better. I was praying every day. I was cooking. I was smiling. The outside appearance was as if nothing was happening. Even though you’re being abused, you still love that person, you’re just trying to love them through it. And you’re trying to pray them through it and you’re not realizing that you can’t change a person, they have to change themselves.”
So were there any visible injuries? Porsha says,
“I never went to the hospital. I never reported anything. There were, but I’ll tell you the ones that have stuck with me the most is the mental abuse. I had so much pride in being a wife and being a mother and what that meant to me was big. So for me to be told that I was lazy, and that I was stupid and that I wasn’t good enough and that nothing I could do was right, that was really, really hard on me. As a housewife you’re trying to be the best and when someone is constantly ridiculing you, I’m always trying to live up to what that person thinks of me, it’s hard.”
And you all know Kordell was not going to let this slide! He tells Access Hollywood that all the claims by Porsha are completely false. He says,
“I married my wife because she was a Godly woman who had accepted her calling as a minister. The bright lights made Porsha lose her way. I no longer know the person she has become. I hope and pray she can turn her life around soon. I loved my wife, supported her and invested in her success. As a reminder, I divorced her. At no time has there been any findings against me, during or before the divorce proceedings, to indicate anything less than a loving and supportive husband. “I’m focused on raising my son and being a single dad. That is a big enough job, without having to continue to respond to her false claims and foolishness. It seems she is willing to do anything to try and keep herself relevant. I have moved forward in my life and I hope she can move forward and stop bringing me back into her life. I was done over 14 months ago with our relationship and marriage.”
This all just seems very shady to me. And what’s even more odd is that if Kordell was to take Porsha back right now, I truly believe Porsha would get back with him. There’s just been so much he said/she said so who do you believe? Porsha or Kordell?
