stewart williams of #rhoa fame is making her rounds.
she got an album to sell and hair to promote!
she is trying to extend her 15 minutes and of course she is doing it the right way.
“playing the victim”.
yes a time tested way for america to fall in love with you after some drama.
she had an interview was access hollywood last friday to start the process.
and everything in between…
ON “BEAUTIES AND THE BRAWL”:
It was so emotional. And when I hit that floor and I started screaming and NeNe was covering my mouth and Phaedra was standing there, it was like sisters. This show is difficult for all of us. They come at me, I come at them, we come at each other. But at the end of the day, we can all pick up the phone and call each other and say, ‘How do you feel today? I know today’s taping was rough.’ Kenya doesn’t have that type of relationship with any of us. So when they saw me on the floor, they knew what I had taken from her, and the bullying she had put me through for two years straight while I was married. Once I got through my divorce, here I am, I’m in the studio, I’ve done my “Flatline” song, I’m feeling successful for once on my own, and here I am sitting on the couch strong, and here she is wanting to tear me down. And so I’m on the floor, and I felt like my sisters were around me. They wanted to make sure I was okay at that moment. And for me, I will never ever forget that. Ever. I don’t care where this show goes for me, I’ll never forget those women for being there for me.
I think they’re backing me, but I’d like to take me out of it. Because I stand for a bigger purpose. It’s not about Porsha. Because I don’t even feel like people have gotten to know Porsha. I think people are standing up for bullying. People are standing up for someone who doesn’t show another human respect.”
ON CALLING KORDELL A QUEEN:
“I call a lot of people queen, honestly…It wasn’t me calling him necessarily gay. I haven’t spoken out on that and I won’t. To me, that’s his life. If he says he isn’t I guess that’s what he wants you to believe. I’m concerned about Porsha, and being better and growing from what I went through.”
ON ALLEGED DOMESTIC ABUSE FROM KORDELL:
“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.”
Billy Bush: “What happened in the marriage?”
Williams: “Abuse. Physical abuse.”
Bush: “Did he hit you?”
Williams: “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 just thought that I could make it better. I honestly thought after each situation that 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.”
ON WHY SHE NEVER SAID ANYTHING:
“When we were going through the divorce process, we had to sit in deposition hearing, and 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.
I never went to the hospital. I never reported anything. There were [visible injuries], 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 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 for me…When someone is constantly ridiculing you, I’m always trying to live up to what that person thinks of me, it’s hard.”
if she was abused she has my sympathy,
but i thought she said in the past that he never hit her?
well it sounds like she will play the “emotional divorcee” for the media.
peep my pr write up:
heavy on the dark likka,
and singing every song on the “waiting to exhale” soundtrack.
porsha was tired!
that was the reason why she went after kenya.
it reminded her of all the abuse she faced with “big ol alleged/but not kinda maybe i dunno queen” kordell.
plus no alimony or parting gifts can do that to a girl.”
me thinks she isn’t too bright to play that role tho.
she should have been insinuating the abuse during her “queen” rants instead of coming off spiteful.
kordell released a statement as well:
”It’s not true.
I’ve never abused her.
Never put my hands on her.
if kenya and kordell decide to form an alliance on this chick…
i may just wet my pants.
