Kordell Stewart, to NFL fans, was a successful quarterback, primarily with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

For reality show fans, he was the overly controlling ex husband of Porsha Williams season five who supposedly blindsided her with divorce papers in 2013.

He has also been facing rumors he's gay for the past 20 years.

He has written his own book called "Truth: The Kordell Stewart Story" and has his first sit-down interview in ages with Steve Harvey on Harvey's talk show, airing on Fox 5 locally at 3 p.m.

Harvey's publicity team sent out some clips and preview quotes.

Stewart told Harvey he has no regrets being on "Real Housewives."

No, I really don’t Steve, because you know what I’ve seen of my ex as of lately, conducting herself, just imagine if we was together for five more years with two children. That wouldn’t have been good.”

He also implied that Williams was not exactly mature while he was married to her.

“I want a woman Steve. I don’t want a child that’s trying to play the role of a woman. Someone that’s strong and can stand her own ground.”

Stewart, who was an afternoon host on 92.9/The Game from 2012 to 2014, said rumors of him being with a transvestite go back to the 1990s. He denied that happened.

“First of all, when in the world have I gone to jail in Pittsburgh, because there’s no record,” Kordell tells Steve Harvey. “I don’t care if it’s 10, 20, 30 years. If it happened, it would be documented, let alone being with a transvestite. Now, each his own, Steve. Trust me when I tell you,”
