Kordell Stewart is dating Towanda Braxton

Kordell-Stewart-Towanda-BraxtonFormer Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Kordell Stewart filed for divorce from his ex-wife Porsha Williams last year. Williams was one of the stars of the reality TV series “Real Housewives of Atlanta.” It appears as though Stewart has gone from one reality TV star to the next, as he is now dating Towanda Braxton.

Braxton, the sister of Toni Braxton and former member of the R&B group The Braxtons, confirmed her relationship with Stewart during a recent appearance on Bettheny Frankel’s talk show. She was also asked about Kordell’s marriage to Williams.

“I don’t know what actually happened in their marriage, you know so that was just the one side of the situation,” Braxton said, according to Reality TV Magazine. “He wasn’t on the show, she was on the show. She was telling her side of the situation.”

Braxton also called Stewart a “really nice guy” and “great dad,” adding that the drama from the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” definitely took its toll on him.

“Quite often people don’t understand that when you put everything tumultuously like that on television, it affects the children,” Braxton said.

Stewart has two sons from a previous relationship. He and Williams have no children together, and Porsha claimed last year that she learned Stewart was filing for divorce when she read it online.

Braxton and her four sisters star in the WE reality series “Braxton Family Values.” They were working on an EP during the second series of the show, though it is unclear if the album will actually be released.

Porsha Williams learned Kordell Stewart filed for divorce by reading it online

Porsha Williams Kordell StewartKordell Stewart recently filed for divorce from his wife Porsha Williams, much to Williams’ surprise.

TMZ reported Tuesday that Stewart filed for divorce on Mar. 22 in Fulton County Superior Court in Georgia. Though Kordell reportedly stated in divorce documents that he and Williams are separated, she says she was surprised to learn of the news when reading it online.

“Mrs. Stewart is disappointed about her husband’s recent filing for divorce,” Williams said in a statement. “Mrs. Stewart had held off on filing for a divorce herself and remained committed to the marriage because Mr. Stewart promised to work on the marriage with her. Instead, he misled her and she found out about the filing in the media. Mrs. Stewart hopes to resolve these personal issues privately with the support of her family, friends and strong faith.”

Stewart, who spent 11 seasons in the NFL, said in his divorce filing that he shouldn’t have to pay spousal support because Williams is “an able-bodied person, earning income and is capable of supporting herself.”

Williams is one of the stars on the TV show “Real Housewives of Atlanta.” The couple does not have any children, and TMZ believes they have a prenuptial agreement. Stewart last played in the NFL in 2005. He made the Pro Bowl in 2001.

Kordell Stewart Wants Back in the NFL

Kordell Stewart appeared on ESPNEWS as an analyst Monday. I’m not sure if this is a new role for him or if he’s just doing an appearance or two, but it didn’t take Slash long to use the opportunity to hop on the soap box. Sure, he was baited by anchor Mike Hill (“Come on, you can be real with me, Dawg”), but Kordell touched on a time when he didn’t get a fair shot at a starting QB gig, and why he’s no longer playing even though he feels he should be.

The year when Jimmy Miller and I in ’96 had a chance to compete, I didn’t get that opportunity to be a starter that year. He signed a new deal, and they had to give him a chance, but I didn’t get a chance to the be the starter. I shared time with Mike Tomczak.

There’s a lot of underlying stuff that I don’t know about that could be coming from other teams … I don’t know. Maybe my confidence level, I don’t know — it could be a million different things. I’ve heard that my confidence is a concern, he’s a one-system kind of guy. If you give a guy a chance and ride with the guy, I’ve proven that I can play the game. I feel like I should be playing … I do want to play.

Kordell’s not the only quarterback to voice such a concern lately — the AJC had a piece last week on black quarterbacks who are jobless. Amongst them were Aaron Brooks, Daunte Culpepper, Byron Leftwich, and Quinn Gray. For each one of those players, I’d have to analyze it case-by-case. For Kordell, I’m guessing he wouldn’t do too well in the league these days considering it’s been several years since he was a decent NFL quarterback — and that’s pushing it. Then again, as long as there’s a place for the likes of Joey Harrington, Vinny Testaverde, and Chris Redman in this league, then I certainly think there’s room for guys like Aaron Brooks and Culpepper.
