Gay Internet Star Alleges Affair With Porsha Williams' Ex-Husband Kordell Stewart
For years, rumors have swirled that former pro football player Kordell Stewart was secretly gay, and hiding behind his marriage to Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams, and now, his alleged gay lover is speaking out, providing details of his affair with the star!

Stewart’s alleged lover is none other than Andrew Caldwell, who rose to international fame with a viral video in which he declared that he had been “delivered” from his homosexuality. “I don’t like mens no more,” Caldwell declared to a church congregation. “I like women women women!” Caldwell has since admitted that he’s still gay — and now he’s saying that he had an affair with Stewart while he was married to Porsha!

“I dated Kordell,” he said in an interview with The ShakeUP Morning Show. While he claimed that sleeping with Stewart was only a one-time occurrence, he was able to parlay the affair into quite the lucrative arrangement. “I had everything that Portia got… I had bags, purses, cars. I’m in a Jaguar right now. Honey, did you see that Jaguar over there?”

Caldwell explained how he came to meet the former NFL star. “We was at a bar. We was at a restaurant and I was like, ‘Oh my God, that’s Kordell.’ “And they was like, ‘Yeah, he’s a football player.’ I was like, ‘Mmm… I like football players… I dated other football players too, I dated some of the Rams.”

Caldwell also admitted that he knew Kordell was married to Williams when he slept with him. “I think she is a gold digger,” he said of the RHOA star. “Girl, you know your husband was gay.”

As Radar has reported, Williams has made gay innuendo at Stewart in the past, suggesting that she had served as her husband’s beard during their marriage.

Kim Fields Talks About 'RHOA' Experience
Bravo officially announced that award-winning actor and director Kim Fields has made the foray into the reality world by becoming a cast member of Bravo's #1 rated Housewives franchise, The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Fields will be joining the cast of: Kandi Burruss, Cynthia Bailey, Kenya Moore, Phaedra Parks and Porsha Williams. Noticeably missing from the lineup is Nene Leakes who announced that she would not be coming back to the reality show that turned her into a celebrity. 

Fields is most recognized as roller-skating Tootie from the 1970's mega-hit show, Facts of Life and as the super, sassy Regine Hunter from the 1990's hit Living Single. Fields has been in front of the camera since she was 7 years old and continues to hone her craft as an actor. Her most recent acting credits are a Hallmark TV movie, For Better or for Worse, and motion picture, What to Expect when you are Expecting, starring Cameron Diaz. She has also been very busy behind the scenes as a sought after director and producer. She has directed successful televisions shows on TBS, BET and TVOne. Fields said, "I'm an actor, director, producer, entrepreneur, mom and wife."

It's because of Field's celebrated history as a "legit" actor and director that many have questioned her choice to join a sometimes tasteless, oftentimes embarrassing, generally degrading and always controversial reality show like the The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Fields said, "When there were rumors about me joining the The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast I was intrigued by how much chatter there was. I was humbled by how many fans were protective of me. Not the brand, but of me." 

In this exclusive interview, a very candid and humorous Kim Fields opens up about her entertainment career, her decision to join The Real Housewives of Atlanta, The Real Housewives of Atlanta drama, and her family. 

Tanya: Over the past few years you have taken on more directing jobs than acting. Are you still passionate about acting?
Acting is my first love. There are still so many characters inside of me that are waiting to come out. 

You starred in Facts of Life for nine years and Living Single for six years. Do you stay connected with your cast mates?
Oh yes. Those are large chapters in our lives and reaching milestones and your co-stars are there to experience all of this with you. They become your family. I stay connected with everyone. When former cast mates, from both shows, come to Atlanta they come and hangout. Lisa Whelchel and I were working on a movie together for Hallmark and our kids played together. That was really cool. Erika Alexander swears that we named our son, Sebastian Alexander, after her because we were such good friends. So we let her continue to think that (laughing). I also stay connected with everyone through social media, Facetime and Skype. 

You made guest starring appearances on many shows including a very memorable episode on the Fresh Prince of Bel Air where Will Smith tried to get you into bed. What was it like working with him?
Working with Will Smith was one of the highlights of my career. He is so talented and has a tremendous work ethic. We are still friends and I reach out to him and his partner to pitch ideas. He loves my mother. In fact, my mother was his son Jaden's acting coach for the movie Pursuit of Happiness. 

Viola Davis gave a stirring acceptance speech during the recent Emmy awards. She spoke about the struggle women of color have in securing acting roles in Hollywood. Do you agree with Viola's statements?
There is a history in the shortage of opportunities for women of color and people of color verses our non-persons of color counter parts. I don't feel that I was often compartmentalized as an African- American actor, yet I am fully aware of the plight that actors, directors and producers of color face in our industry. I choose to focus on being proactive in creating opportunities for myself and others while acknowledging that we are not playing on a level playing field. The web, other digital outlets and technology have increased the opportunities for actors tremendously. 

You are married and have two children. How do you balance your career and family?

Yes, my husband's name is Christopher Morgan and we met in Atlanta. My two children are Sebastian and Quincy. I am 46 with a two year old and an eight year old. You'd think I would be a size two running after my kids like a do. There is no nanny. We have the occasional sitter. If my work causes me to be gone more than 2 days, the kids come with me. My husband and I are involved in school activities. Again this year, I am the Chair of the Black History Month events. The kids have lots of extracurricular activities too. We are 1000 percent hands on. We just make it work. 

How does your husband deal with your celebrity?
I have an amazing husband who is a strong man of God. He is very dedicated to me and our family. We have been married for eight years and together for 10 years. It's not being easy being married to someone who has been in the public eye for over 35 years, but he has become very comfortable with it. 

Is it more difficult to maintain privacy as a celebrity in light of the Internet?
The Internet is my scrapbook. The Internet can be a wonderful tool. But sometimes it's food and sometimes it's poison. It causes us to live a transparent life even though I am a private person. There is no hiding place although I have nothing to hide. You don't even have to be a celebrity for everyone to know your business. 

What made you decide to sign on to The Real Housewives of Atlanta?
I've been asked for years to do a reality show. One of my criteria is that I would be given the opportunity to show a strong family unit. When they came to me to do the show, they said, "We love you. We love your light and we love your opinions and you can give them in your way." So far they have been great in letting me be me. 

In order to be a part of the Housewives of Atlanta cast, the ladies live in the Atlanta area. What brought you to Atlanta from California?
There has been a tremendous growth in the entertainment industry throughout Atlanta. There are many opportunities in film, television and theatre. I was offered an opportunity to direct Tyler Perry's Meet the Browns. It was a time when I was thinking about leaving California anyway so it was a great fit.

Shannon Beador Describes Explosive Confrontation With Hubby David’s Mistress: ‘That Was A Knife In My Heart’
Shannon Beador is finally talking about the big elephant in the room: husband David’s former mistress.

The Real Housewives of Orange County stars sat down with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live to discuss the affair that rocked their marriage to the core.

“I have actually spoken to her because she called me once,” Shannon told Andy. “But I’ve never sought her out.”

Then, trying not to break down in tears, she added: “In that conversation I wanted to say certain things but I didn’t. I said, ‘I want my family back.’ Her response was, ‘He’s obsessed with me! He wants to marry me! I don’t even know the guy,’ and it was not, it wasn’t a kind conversation.”

“I don’t think people understand the level of hurt,” Shannon continued.

“One day David handed [our daughter] Stella his wedding ring and said, ‘Give this to your mother, I don’t want it anymore,’ and that was a knife in my heart,” she confessed.

“I thought we’re never going to get back together and I had to do some of the interview commentary for the show and I wore his wedding ring because there wasn’t any way I was going to give up.”

As Radar previously reported, the couple were able to work through their issues with couples’ counseling — as seen on RHOC — though Shannon admits the affair “shattered their children .”

Yolanda Foster Chops Off All of Her Hair
Yolanda Foster is saying snip-snip to her blond locks!

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star shared a photo on Instagram tonight revealing that famed hairstylist to the stars Chris McMillian was on the verge of cutting off all her hair.

Playfully posing with her tresses as faux mustaches, Foster shared a picture of the duo in the salon with the caption, "Done with the old, embracing the new............... #1964Original #WorkingMyWayBack @mrchrismcmillan."

Working her way back to what, you ask? Well since her hashtag is saying 1964, we can only guess Yolanda is taking it back to her birth! Yep, the reality star was born in 1964 so we're guessing she's going real short.

We can only guess that the new 'do is part of the beauty's decision to go au natural. 

One week after the Bravo star revealed that doctors discovered a ruptured 20-year-old silicone implant and said she "may have hit the jackpot" amid her ongoing battle with chronic Lyme disease, the 51-year-old reality star took to Instagram to announce she's going "toxic free." 

And for Foster, that means cutting out a number of beauty treatments from her regular routine. 

"Homeward bound, grateful and down to the bare bone of the original 1964 model......#NoMoreImplants #NoMoreBotox #NoMoreExtensions #NoMoreHighlights #NoMoreNailPolish #ToxicFree," she wrote alongside a photo of herself resting comfortably in a robe on an airplane. "Forced to honor my authentic self and respectfully own it!!! #MyHealthJourney #SearchingForaCure"

Jill Zarin Hospitalized After Multi-Car Accident in NYC
Close call! Real Housewives of New York alum Jill Zarin was briefly hospitalized after being involved in a car crash in New York City on Friday, Oct. 2.

“Jill Zarin was rushed by ambulance to the hospital where she was treated for unknown injuries and later released,” a rep for the reality personality tells Us in a statement. “Zarin is currently at home recuperating and no additional details are available at this time.”

Zarin, 51, was on her way to promote her sci-fi film, Night of the Wild, when the car she and her publicist were riding became involved in a three-car pile-up on the Franklin D. Roosevelt Drive. 

The reality star’s sister, Lisa Wexler, confirmed the news in a tweet.

“My beautiful sis @Jillzarin TODAY at 5:30, thk G-d OK after car crash on FDR,” the talk radio host wrote.

Earlier in the day, Zarin tweeted about her film, which premieres on the Syfy channel on Saturday, Oct. 3, at 9 p.m. EST.

“Just one more day until my movie NIGHT OF THE WILD PREMIERES!” she wrote. “I’ll be tweeting LIVE!”

Meghan King Edmonds Responds to Brooks Ayers' Lawsuit Threat: 'He Knows He's a Liar'
Meghan King Edmonds may be hearing from Brooks Ayers' lawyers.

The Real Housewives of Orange County star, who has publicly said she thinks Ayers is faking cancer, says Ayers and his attorney sent her a letter threatening to sue her. Ayers, the former boyfriend of RHOC star Vicki Gunvalson, was diagnosed with stage 3 non-Hodgkin lymphoma in 2013.

"I am waiting patiently on my official documents that I'm being sued," Edmonds tells PEOPLE. "I already got one letter threatening to sue if I don't comply with his requests, including one to issue a formal public apology." 

The letter says she had to respond by this past Wednesday evening, or else Ayers and his attorney would pursue legal action. That deadline has come and gone, but Edmonds isn't worried.  

"I didn't respond on purpose, because he's full of crap and doesn't have a case. So now I'm waiting to be sued," says Edmonds, 31. "He won't. He knows he's a liar and he's pissed off at me and made a feeble attempt to intimidate me into not talking. When really, it's so ridiculous I simply laughed it off. He doesn't have the balls to sue me."

On the show, several housewives, including Edmonds and Tamra Judge, have questioned the diagnosis. Ayers maintains he is sick.

"I think they do it to create drama," Ayers told Entertainment Tonight last month of the cast's accusations regarding his illness. "It's useless drama that brings on stress that quite frankly no one needs and in particular my situation. I'm not running from anything."

Lisa Vanderpump Reveals That Kyle and Kim Richards Have Reconciled After Falling Out: "They Seemed Happy"
The inside scoop! Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump tells Us Weekly that sisters Kim and Kyle Richards have reconciled following their very public falling out on the Bravo hit show and Kim's subsequent arrest and rehab stint this year.

"I saw [Kim] just the other day," Vanderpump tells Us at the EVINE Live celebration held on Tuesday, Sept. 29, at the reality star's famed Villa Blanca in Beverly Hills. "She’s doing very well and she looks healthy and happy so that’s good. That’s more important than anything, any reality show, so I was happy to see her, doing well on her birthday."

In fact, the Race to Witch Mountain actress celebrated her 51st birthday with her estranged sister, Kyle, whom she feuded with on the last season of RHOBH. "I just think that when there’s something like she has been through -- struggle -- you’ve got to put everything behind you," Vanderpump says of the sisterly spat.
In April, Kim was arrested on charges of public intoxication, battery, and resisting arrest after creating a ruckus inside the famed Beverly Hills Hotel. The former child actress subsequently checked into rehab in June. However, her problems continued well into the summer, when she was arrested in August for shoplifting from a local Target store.

"The most important thing is her sobriety and I’m glad that she has achieved that," says Vanderpump, 55, who debuted her faux fur throws at the party on Tuesday. "She has really kind of committed to that. And I think, what can we do? Nothing but support her. And hope the best for her in the future."
For now, it appears that Kim and and her younger sister, Kyle, 46, have made amends. "I’m sure it’s a complex relationship, but they seemed happy," Vanderpump tells Us. "It was her birthday so that’s a really positive step in the right direction."

Us Weekly also confirmed this past summer that Kim would not be returning to the franchise, nor would her pal Brandi Glanville. But fear not, according to Vanderpump, there will be some drama in Season 6.
"There’s always stories," she notes to Us. "I think the most intriguing thing is always about the personal journey of each individual woman and how you come together and how you have differences of opinions and I think that always happens. I mean, are we rolling around on the floor pulling each other’s hair out? No we’re not but that’s not the lives...I think we’ve got to be true to ourselves but it has been…yeah there have been some very intense kind of situations and moments, for sure."

Vanderpump's personal journey includes her latest passion project. "It’s just very exciting for me, because I’ve had a chance to really kind of design and create different things," she tells Us. "The challenge is making it affordable and then they come into my house and go, 'Do you want to do a home collection?' And I’m like, 'Yes, I want to do bedding, I want to do faux furs.' These [new] fur blankets are designed in France, they’re really plush and really gorgeous quality but the challenge is always making it affordable so I’ve been very involved in it and I’ve had a great time doing it."

Desperate Brandi Glanville Claims Joanna Krupa Can't Sue Her Because of Bravo 'Housewife' Contract
Brandi Glanville has another trick up her sleeve to get the smelly vagina lawsuit thrown out ... she claims Joanna Krupa signed away her right to go after Brandi in court. 

In documents obtained by TMZ ... Brandi says Joanna's defamation suit  should be tossed, because Joanna's 'Real Housewives' contract forbids her from suing her fellow 'Housewives' cast members.

It would make sense since the heat on those shows comes from the women sniping at each other. 
Joanna was on "The Real Housewives of Miami" back in 2013 -- and, in fact, Brandi's vagina comment came on the heels of the 'Miami' reunion show. 

Brandi admits she doesn't have a copy of Joanna's contract ... but considering Brandi was on the Bev Hills edition, it's a good bet she knows what's in the fine print.

Krupa's lawyer thinks Brandi's reaching -- trying everything she can and "hope something sticks."
While I can understand the need to put such language in a contract with with all the 'Housewives' drama that goes on, does the fact that Brandi and Joanna were on two different shows make a difference? Plus, how about the fact that Joanna may not have still been under contract when Brandi repeated the claims? I would love to get people's opinions on this.

Ramona Singer's New Man Cheating? Her New Boyfriend Caught Flirting With Younger Blonde
Is there heartbreak in NYC? Well it might appear that way, as new reports are claiming that Thomas D'Agostino, who we previously reported was dating Real Housewives of New York (RHONY) star Ramona Singer, appears to be single. It was being speculated that the businessman and CEO of the company Smart Source has been out on the town telling people that he is very much unattached. While Singer and D'Agostino were not officially dating yet, it was reported that they were getting very close to one another over the last couple of weeks, so what happened?

Whatever it was that went down between these two, it appears that D'Agostino was seen at a recent event in New York City getting close to a blonde who was much younger than his former gal pal Singer, according to Radar Online.
"He was totally chatting up a young blonde girl who was at least thirty years younger than Ramona," the insider explained to the news site, adding that to make matters worse, "he told the girl he was single."

We hope that if Singer and D'Agostino are actually official that after this she will cut her ties with the business and property owner after hearing that he has been stepping out on her.

After all, Singer's husband of over 20 years, Mario, was caught cheating on his wife with another blonde, Kasey Dexter, which ultimately led to the downfall of their marriage.

The Inquistr is also reporting on D'Agostino's flirtation, saying that the businessman, who runs in the same circle as the RHONY star, could actually jsut be using her for her fame.

Kim Zolciak Gets Booted Off ‘Dancing With the Stars’
Six days after Kim Zolciak suffered a stroke, she has withdrawn from “Dancing with the Stars.”

The former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star, 37, appeared via Skype on Monday night’s episode to deliver an update.

“I feel really great,” she said. “I don’t know if you know, but I rehearsed on Saturday. I learned that whole dance that Jenna [Johnson] just did, but then my doctor told me yesterday that it’s too soon to fly.”

In her absence, Zolciak’s partner Tony Dovolani performed their scheduled dance with Johnson.

“I just wish her well,” Dovolani said of Zolciak. “I mean the family comes first, health comes first. I’m so happy she listened to the doctors. They said she might be able to fly on Sunday next week, so if the rules could be bent, just one time?”

Unfortunately, the rules couldn’t be bent. According to host Tom Bergeron, who referred to the show’s lawyers, any contestant who is unable to perform due to illness must withdraw from the show.
Zolciak then posted a video of her practicing on Saturday. “I just needed a few more days and then I’m cleared to fly,” she captioned it.

Brooks Ayers Finally Reveals Medical Records, But the Ladies Still Aren't Convinced He Has Cancer
Here’s the proof! Well, kind of. 

On the Sept. 28 episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Brooks Ayers finally revealed his medical records — but Tamra Judge et al remain unconvinced he's telling the truth about his cancer. Plus, Heather and Terry Dubrow launched their skincare line on a home-shopping channel, and Vicki Gunvalson proved that she is the queen of passive-aggressive text messages. Oh, and during a meeting with her pastor, Tamra compared baptism to coming out of the closet and called for a “blonde version of the Bible.” Read the recap for more ridiculous(ly amazing) moments! Click here to see current pics of the Real Housewives' kids.

Date Night
Shannon and David Beador have made repairing their marriage their first priority this season, and during this episode’s date night, their relationship looked stronger than ever. After the couple got settled at a beautiful beachside restaurant (aka Shannon ordered her signature Grey Goose soda with lime), they began to chat about their day.

“I talked on the phone a lot to Tamra and Heather,” Shannon said to David’s surprise. “Three months ago, I didn’t know if I could even trust Tamra or if they were my friends, and now I feel like both of them are really getting along.” 

"You were pretty close with Vicki and Brooks,” David responded. He mentioned the lunch that Shannon and Vicki had the day before and asked, “So you’re still close, aren’t you?” 

“That’s questionable,” she answered, reaching for her vodka cocktail.
After Vicki had left the lunch in tears the previous afternoon, she had sent Shannon a lengthy — and sassy — text message. Because what’s a sit-down with the OG of the OC without backlash?

“I’m extremely upset and hurt from lunch,” Shannon read to the camera. “Yes Shannon, I’m pissed and saddened by this BS. By the way, I never said that you were nasty and threatening. I said the lunch was nasty, which in my opinion, it was.” 

“I’ve only tried to help and I know that I’ve been a good friend,” Shannon told David, referring to the emotional support and medical references she had given Vicki after Brooks first claimed that he had cancer. “If she doesn’t think so, then that’s a real shame.”
