Mark 8:36 NLT asks, “And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul?”
This scripture creates the perfect framework for this next story about Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Porsha Stewart.
Many don’t know she is a former Christian Evangelist, who once preached the gospel of Jesus Christ.
News of the undoing of the reality TV diva’s less than two-year marriage to NFL star Kordell Stewart, has made national headlines. Now, the increased scrutiny is further uncovering more about the life of the once sold out for Jesus celebrity.
In a March 28 post, the Young Black and Fabulous blog embedded videos of a charismatic Stewart, proclaiming the word of God at High Praise Christian Center Ministries in Lithonia, GA.
Modestly dressed in a pink blazer, her image back then is a far cry from the current made-for-TV, sensational persona.
YBF editors asked, “So how does a well spoken, seemingly conservative Evangelist become a ditzy glammed up ‘Barbie’ who calls herself a ‘black trophy wife’?”
The answer: “With the help of a reality show check and the lure of fame.”
Another website, Madame Noire, exposed Stewart’s secret Christian life in January.
“Considering the fact that Porsha’s grandfather, Civil Rights activist, Hosea Williams was a reverend, this isn’t completely shocking,” wrote Jazmine Denise Rogers. “Despite Porsha’s behavior during this season, her being raised in church doesn’t seem far fetched.”
