Never mind the gay rumors! The Real Housewives of Atlanta was responsible for the demise of Kordell Stewart's two-year marriage to reality star Porsha Williams, the NFL alum claims in his new memoir.
"As I unlocked the doors and allowed Bravo's camera crews into our house and our lives, however, all existing problems in our marriage seemed to be brought to light," the bitter former Bravolebrity, 44, writes about the former couple's 2012 debut on the hit series in Truth: The Kordell Stewart Story. "Over time…I felt like my only choice was to file for divorce."
The single father of preteen son Syre also accuses the series' "lifestyle" with having a "negative impact" on his "young, impressionable" boy.
And, he soon learned, divorce in the spotlight can get very, very ugly.
"The show made the divorce process worse, but I chose to keep my mouth shut," he says of their 2013 split. "Whenever you see people running their mouths about things, it's difficult, especially when those things are not true, but the reality is that I have a child who is more important than a foolish reality television show and people who are trying to make themselves relevant."
Now, without his 35-year-old ex by his side, "my family is ten times better," he slams in the book. "I can be around my son and have the right, positive energy around him."
Of course, drama followed Stewart after his divorce and retirement from reality TV.
Williams hinted at gay rumors, claiming her former husband didn't want to have sex with her during their marriage.
"A Pittsburgh cop had supposedly arrested me in Schenley Park for performing lewd acts with a transvestite," Stewart recalls of a 1998 scandal. "The rumor was so absurd it was almost funny."
