Porsha Stewart, the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star, discussed her divorce from former NFL quarterback Kordell Stewart during Sunday night's Season 6 premiere and suggested the pro athlete could be gay.
"There were definitely times in the marriage that Kordell didn’t necessarily want me, physically, and that made me wonder, what does he want?" the 31-year-old Porsha said during a segment of the reality TV series.

"When we first got together, I asked him about rumors of him being gay, because family members were bringing it up to me and friends were asking me about it, and he explained it away," Porsha added. "He had no reason to divorce me."
At the end of the previous season, Porsha revealed to viewers that she first learned that her husband had filed for divorce in March by reading tweets from fans. She said she had no signs from Kordell that he was interested in leaving her.
Porsha, who is the granddaughter of civil rights leader Hosea Williams, later acknowledged that she tried and failed to reconcile with Kordell, which apparently led to her revelation on Sunday's episode. The couple married in May 2011.
In the episode, Porsha cries to her mother Diane and half-sister Lauren.
"I didn’t question whether he was gay or not because someone else said it. Any reasons that I questioned it were things I had experienced or seen," she said.
The 41-year-old Kordell, who retired from the NFL in 2005 after playing with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Chicago Bears, and Baltimore Ravens, has long denied being gay.
Kordell was rated sixth on a list of the Top 10 most versatile players in NFL history by the NFL network.
On Sunday, the former quarterback reacted to his ex-wife's statement on Twitter.
When asked on Sunday by a Twitter fan if he was gay, Kordell responded:
