NeNe Leakes is taking to her Bravo Blog to discuss her comments about Kordell Stewart being controlling in his marriage to Porsha. NeNe explains why she believes what she does, and explains that she views marriage as an equal partnership. NeNe also dissects things Porsha said in the episode that lead her to believe Porsha’s being controlled. Read what she had to say below.
NeNe writes, “Sin city baby! This is where it all goes down! So we left Hollywood and headed to Vegas. A girlsâ€™ trip is just that — girls hanging out, shopping, partying, and enjoying cocktails are definitely all in the mix. Pure innocent fun!
I arrived in Vegas around 10pm after a long day of work. I was told the plan was to head to a strip club, ride a bull, and have a sex toy party — none of which I would normally do on a girls trip! I came on this trip, so I was willing to do whatever; as long as it didnâ€™t involve doing drugs, having sex, or breaking the law, I was cool! So I got dressed and headed out on the town with the girls.
Once we were in the limo, Porsha said loud and clear that Kordell would NOT be happy if she went to a strip club and that he had already LET her go from Cali to LA! (Which is around the block I guess, LOL!) Now let me break it down to you this way — I have been to strip clubs and worked in one when I was in my early twenties. Now I have moved on too much bigger and better things! I really like Porsha, and even feel like a big sister to her. If Porsha didnâ€™t want to go to the strip club herself, that’s fine! The message I think we all were trying to send to her was to use your own brain and let this be your decision. Weâ€™ve all been around her and heard her say things that sound like she’s being controlled. Maybe Kordell feels the need to control her, because he knows what he’s working with.
Porsha also said she was a Christian, and I have to agree with Phaedra on this one — going to church doesnâ€™t make you any more of a Christian than going to a strip club makes you a stripper or a sinner! Maybe Kordell thought she would dance like a stripper, because we’ve all seen that too. I have been in a relationship with the same man longer than any of these ladies have been in their relationships. I don’t want to judge Porsha’s relationship, because I obviously don’t live with them. I can only tell you what these eyes and ears hear and see. I watch the show just like you do, so based off everything I’ve seen and heard myself, it appears that Kordell is talking to his daughter and not his wife! Porsha can’t seem to do much without getting permission from Kordell. This is not my relationship, so if Porsha likes it, I love it, and I really don’t give a sh– what Porsha and Kordell do! Iâ€™m entitled to my opinion!
I personally view a marriage as an equal partnership. I think you should treat each other with respect, consider each otherâ€™s needs, and support one anotherâ€™s dreams and goals and work together as a team. This is NeNe’s point of view, and I’m sure you have your own opinion too! Being on a television show is not the place to say “don’t judge me,” because we are all putting ourselves out there to be judged! I have stated my opinions, and none of them are facts. I will never talk to Porsha about her relationship again, but if she ever wants to talk to me, Iâ€™m here!”
