Kordell Stewart admits that he changed the locks on the mansion he shared with Porsha Stewart to protect his family.
On Monday, it was reported that Porsha claimed Kordell had effectively kicked her out of their house by suddenly changing the locks behind her back. In new, recently filed court documents, Kordell doesn’t deny that he did get a new set of locks, but he claims that he only did so after Porsha “abandoned the marital home on April 2nd, 2013.”
Supposedly, Porsha had gotten into the habit of coming and going from the house without any explanation to him. When he got fed up with the behavior, Kordell decided to change the locks, but he argues in court documents that Porsha would have to known he was going to do it because he made an annoucement to everyone in his inner circle.
“Hey reaching out not knowing who may or may not have keys to the house at this point,” Kordell claims he stated in a mass text message, “I was concerned for our safety so I changed the locks on the house. If and when you need to get in give me a heads up so you can get in”
It’s not clear what would have caused Kordell to become scared enough to change the locks. But this message could also disprove Porsha’s claims that he’s refusing to let her into the house or give her a key to mansion so that she can gain access on her own.
For now, Porsha is supposedly staying with her mother until Kordell gives her enough money. However, the former NFL pro thinks she has more than enough cash of her own to get a suitable place.
“She is a celebrity, and has the income through appearances, endorsements, Bravo and other entities,” Kordell stated in court documents. “[Porsha] should be capable of supporting herself but may not be able to as a result of her own financial negligence.”

The “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star appeared in a Georgia court today after failing a court-ordered drug test. Through his attorney, Scrappy revealed his belief that he’s addicted to weed. The judge then ruled that the rapper would have to be admitted to a rehabilitation center.
According to reports, the alternative for Scrappy would have been more jail time. He’d already violated his probation in March when authorities suspected that he switched his urine sample for someone else’s. When asked to provide a “fresh” sample, he refused. Scrappy was scheduled to return to court in June for a follow-up drug test, but if he goes through rehab, he’s expected to be undergoing treatment at that time.
“LHH:ATL” fans are already expressing their disappointment that he likely won’t be around for the season 2 reunion.
Scrappy seems to be taking the order in stride. After the news began to spread, he tweeted “Thank u God for ur love an grace.”Published: 5/22/2013 16:52:45 PM

The former Miss USA has spoken about her days as an actress and model. She’s made it known that she’s rubbed elbows with stars from Whitney Houston (in Waiting to Exhale) to Boris Kodjoe (in The Confidant).
Last week, the reality star, who’s been accused of propositioning her co-star’s husband, shared a throwback photo from the ‘90s music video for “Money Ain’t a Thing.” In the image, Kenya is riding shot gun next to a younger Jay-Z behind the wheel.
After getting a few questions about the photo and whether Kenya, who has likened herself to Beyonce in the past, had an intimate past with the rapper, she returned to Twitter to straighten things out.
“Sorry… but NO I never dated Jay-Z. Only worked on the video. He and @jermainedupri were true gentlemen,” wrote Kenya, using the hashtags “dumbRumors” and “twirlonthat.”

“The Celebrity Apprentice” is over, but the drama between Omarosa Manigault and LaToya Jackson persists.
There’s always tension during the fast-paced, demanding challenges on the popular show, but during one particularly intense team meeting, things escalated between Omarosa and LaToya.
As a result, LaToya lashed out by suggesting that maybe Omarosa pulled the plug on her late fiancée, Michael Clarke Duncan.
Omarosa has yet to receive an apology from LaToya, whose lawyers are hoping Omarosa won’t go through with the lawsuit she filed against LaToya.
“She needs to apologize for the horrible things that she said about my fiancé. Until she does that, I’ll have absolutely no respect for that woman,” Omarosa told “Access Hollywood.”
According to the former “Ultimate Merger” star, LaToya’s lawyers are “beggin’ us not to proceed and making some concessions.
Not only is LaToya not apologizing, she’s still uttering the statement that caused the rift between the two, and she’s seemingly proud of herself for standing up to Omarosa.
“She is a bully, and I don’t like bullies,” LaToya said.

Beyoncé’s not having a baby, she’s got tonsillitis. Anyway, the full version of Beyoncé’s upcoming track “Grown Woman” has found its way online!
Beyoncé debuted the full version of the song, first introduced in a Pepsi ad, during a concert in France late last month. While Bey has to officially drop the single, the full song has leaked and fans were clamoring to hear it
While “Grown Woman” initially leaked on SoundCloud, it was quickly yanked from the site. But the Internet has not completely been scrubbed of the cut, which you can hear below!
Clearly Bey knows how to do what ever she wants, and that includes announcing her own pregnancies. Before Bey revealed her baby bump at the MTV Video Music Awards two years ago, no one knew that she was with child. This came after years of constantly battling rumors that she was expecting.
More recently, chatter that she’s pregnant again really ramped up after the 2013 Met Gala and her statements on “Good Morning America” days before that, when she revealed that she would like another child. And Bey really got people wondering about the possibility of baby no.2 after she cancelled a show in Belgium. The perfect storm of speculation came to a head on Friday as the Web exploded with reports E! News claimed that sources confirmed that Bey is having another baby.
While neither Jay-Z nor Bey rushed to refute the rumors, they have each addressed the gossip in their own way. Hov denied the baby news via a text message to Hot 97 and Bey revealed that the reason doctor’s benched her for a night is because she has tonsillitis.

Though they’re just friends now, K. told the DJs at Power 105.1 in New York that the former Miami Dolphin, who dated her reality star counterpart Evelyn Lozada, is courting her.
“We are going to dinner and we are being friends, and we’re talking on the phone, and he’s courting,” said K., who clarified that they’ve not crossed the line into a physical relationship.
“We have not slept together. I’ve been through a lot with this dating thing,” she explained. “We are friends and I think that’s what it needs to be. I think I hopped into something that I shouldn’t have hopped into so quickly last time, and I feel like now I have to pace it.”
As for sex, K. said now is not the time for that type of relationship. “I’m just getting to know him as a friend,” she said, denying that the two have anything too serious going on at this point.
K. shared that while her former “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” co-stars sometimes put her down for not having a man, she’s not in a relationship now because men she meets don’t do the work.
However, Chad did purchase a monkey for the singer who told him not to buy her shoes, since that’s the gift he normally buys for other women.
The primate won’t be joining K.Michelle in the Big Apple when she heads over to “Love & Hip Hop: NY.” K. said the move will help her transition to having her own reality show.
“’Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta’ was a great stepping stone for me. Now, coming to New York, that’s basically setting up my own show. It’ll kind of be my own show within ‘Love & Hip Hop: New York,’” said K., who didn’t clarify whether viewers will get to see Chad on the show.
K. talks more about dating, her monkey, Rasheeda & Kirk Frost and her music. Watch.

“The drink had to be sat down,” she told Bravo’s Andy Cohen. “There was no table next to me, and so I just… It is what it is.”
Mariah, who swung her purse at Toya after the flying object missed her, has taken full responsibility for the incident that negatively affected her relationships with many of her co-stars.
However, Toya asserts that she was just defending herself. “I was backed up against a wall,” said Toya who was complaining about Mariah’s mother at the time. “I do not believe that I started the situation with Mariah.”
Toya said the two women always had a strained relationship, and neither is sure they’ll be able to mend things completely.
“It was always odd with her and I,” Toya told Sister 2 Sister. “We tried, but I just think that a lot of times Mariah can make things into a larger situation than what they truly are.”
Mariah told S2S “only time will tell” whether their relationship can be repaired.
Both women say they’ve forgiven the other, and while there are seemingly still hurt feelings involved, neither has completely closed the door on their friendship.
“I forgive and we move on and I think with time we can build and heal and you never know,” said Toya. “We’ll see what happens.”

“I am so excited about my role,” Tika told S2S, bracing fans for the fact that her character … will leave many OWN viewers speechless. “She’s a different type. She’s ambitious. …She’s come from a very hard past. All I ask is people don’t judge her right away.”
That said, doesn’t believe that Candace would be as concerned about how people see her. She’s way too focused on going after what she wants by any means necessary. “She knows that it’s not a very pretty picture, and she doesn’t care. She’s just trying to climb to the top,” Tika explained.
“I love that I can play somebody different and complex,” Tika said before dishing that she’s got some of the best lines on the show if only for their shock value. “I think what will be surprising are the things that come out of her mouth. What she says to people is so insane.”
Tika, who has previously starred in “The Game” and Sparkle, is a very direct person and can identify with Candace speaking her mind. However, the actress feels that her character takes things beyond the limits of good taste–that’s why she has such a great time playing Candace.
“It’s fun because I never get to be that way,” said Tika “The words that she says, I don’t know if I would say them so much because somebody might smack me–which maybe somebody does–but I would never say the things that she says.”

Porsha Williams claims that she’s been forced to live with her mother because her estranged husband Kordell Stewart has locked her out of their home again.
Kordell has supposedly laid down the ultimate trump card in his alleged effort to keep Porsha out of the house they share as their divorce gets increasingly nasty.
The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star formerly known as Porsha Stewart (she’s gone back to her maiden name) has filed papers in Georgia family court, claiming that Kordell suddenly changed the locks on their home without notifying her. TMZ.com reports that Porsha’s legal team has reached out to Kordell several times asking for a key, but he’s refused to hand one over.
And there’s word that, despite showing some regrets about dumping Porsha, Korell’s not trying to work things out with his soon-to-be ex. Supposedly, Porsha’s tried to set up some mediation sessions with Kordell, but he’s neglected to show up because he feels that it’s a “waste of everyone’s time.”
For the time being, Porsha’s staying with her mother, but she’s petitioning a judge to make Kordell let her use the house. If he doesn’t want to do that, she’d like the former NFL player to give her enough money to move into a “suitable alternative residence.”
Kordell yet to speak out on the claims.

He’s twice divorced, but is super-producer The-Dream scorned by love? He spoke to S2S Publisher Jamie Foster Brown about the possibility of walking down the aisle again. Find out what he said in this excerpt from the June 2013 Q&A.
Jamie: Would you get married again?
The-Dream: Of course! I like the idea of it. I have this book I’m writing about how, as blessed as I am, how I could have a girlfriend; I could have kids with her, chill out and that’s my girl. We woo-woo-woo, whatever it is, and get all of the same things that you get when you’re married to someone. It probably didn’t work years go, but why get married? What do they say? “Get the milk without the cow.”
The-Dream: But that word “marriage” changes who you are. Immediately you’re not that forgiving and it’s just like, “We fought all the time when we were boyfriend and girlfriend and we never broke up.” You have a good fight when you’re married and it’s like, “I’m out of here. Peace!” It’s like it gets more fragile when it’s supposed to be stronger.

Erica Dixon’s not putting up with Lil Scrappy and his questionable ways anymore, and she’s calling off their wedding!
So far, season 2 of “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” has been pretty tough on Erica and Scrappy’s relationship. While the pair, who share a daughter, have been working on walking down the aisle, Momma Dee has been trying to split them up by throwing his “friend” Shay “Buckeey” Johnson in between them. And let’s not forget the explosive family dinner where Erica got in Scrappy’s face about his mother’s continued disrespect.
While Erica and Scrappy had seemingly worked out their difference, the would-be bride said she wanted to hold off on planning a wedding until their relationship was a little more solid–especially in the trust department. What she though was just a temporary bump in the road may have become something a little more permanent because she’s found out that other women are texting him in the middle of the night!
“If it was someone else without a history of cheating, then maybe I could have brushed it off. But not Scrappy,” Erica said during a sneak peek of tonight’s episode.
The rapper doesn’t see what the big deal is about other women trying to holler at him in the middle of the night. “That could be just something or I did,” said Scrappy, who admitted that the behavior was not okay. However, he found fault with Erica for snooping. “Once you go looking for something you gon’ find it.”
Somehow, the conversation morphs from them trying to address one very specific issue to Scrappy talking about the meaning of love. While Erica may have entertained the shift in discussion in the past, today it was the last straw.
“I’ve had enough,” said Scrappy’s babymama before calling off their wedding. “Erica is done. The marriage is off. Engagement off. Relationship null and void.”

Tionna Smalls is bringing the gospel of getting the man you want with her new MTV show “Girl Get Your Mind Right”!
Single girls, you may not like to hear it, but the truth is that you’ve got to love you before you’re ready for a relationship. Lucky for you, Tionna will be giving women the tools they need to do just that every single day when “Girl Get Your Mind Right” debuts tonight!
From her humble beginnings as a self-published author, to her TV debut on “What Chilli Wants”–and even a run dishing out some much-needed advice to readers for S2S–Tionna believes that many relationship problems can be resolved by simply knowing your worth.
“The #1 thing that I can give any girl is that you have to be self confident. You have to love yourself,” she told S2S. “A lot of people go looking for love in the wrong place. They’re looking for someone to make them feel good about themselves. But the main thing is you have to feel that way about yourself without a man. That’s #1. Bottom line.”
And it’s not just a bunch of talk. Tionna told us that she lives her own advice and it has never steered her wrong because guys see it applied in her own life. In her opinion, if you’re going to talk about it, you have to be about it!
“I love following my own advice becuse people will test you to see if you follow [what you say]. Men test you on what you write about,” said Tionna, who points out that you don’t have to be a published author like her to experience this yourself. With the invetion of Facebook everyone is narating their life, and guys like being referenced as much as possible. “They love to be written about. These men will do anything to be written about.”
Tionna has established herself as a common sense love guru, and she credits her family with giving her a solid foundation for love advice. “My parents taught me the game at a very young age, and they’re still married,” Tionna stated.
She was able to spin that wealth of knowledge into her first book, Girl Get Your Mind Right. Even after all that she’s accomplished, MTV felt it was best to bring the show back to her flagship love guide. Initially she wanted to kind of do a continuation of what you saw from her on “What Chilli Wants,” but the network had something more in mind.
“They turned the idea that I had into a much bigger idea,” Tionna recalled. “They came up with making it the title of my book. They came up with it being daily.”
She added, “Everything [women] need to know about love, they need to find out from Tionna.”
Check out Tionna’s latest lessons on love when “Girl Get Your Mind Right” airs Monday-Friday at 6 p.m. EST! First up on Tionna’s teaching one girl that playing nice isn’t always good for you.

While many wondered why Tamar would wait until her first single topped the charts to start her family, she clarified that her pregnancy wasn’t planned.
“I didn’t pick out the right time. It was picked for me,” she told Sister 2 Sister. “I think everything is in God’s divine order, and I guess this is my path.”
They say timing is everything, and while her pregnancy was somewhat unexpected, Tamar’s musical success is something she’s been anticipating for quite some time.
Some mistakenly consider her an overnight success, but Tamar reminded S2S correspondent Chanita Foster that she’s been on her grind for years, and she wouldn’t have it any other way.
“I think some artists who are overnight success stories actually get to miss out because you learn a lot and you’re just not thrown into this business,” she said. “I’ve been doing this a long time.”
