Reproductive Justice Matters

"I thought you worked on abortions so how can you also believe Black Lives Matter?" That was the question I was asked when, on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, I posted remarks, via social media, on the importance of honoring this anniversary.

Who Is Kandi Burruss' New Man? It's Willis McGahee

Comments (18)


Since last fall's tragic death of her fiancé A.J. Jewell, 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' star Kandi Burruss has been taking her time before getting involved with a new significant other.

But, on the season premiere of 'Housewives' viewers get an inside look at the new man in her life.

Willis McGahee is a running back for the Baltimore Ravens. Though the 28 year-old is no longer the NFL team's starting running back, last year he ended the season with his best career statistics, including second most touchdowns in the league with 14.

But, in addition to balancing his hectic professional football career, McGahee is working hard at winning over the 34-year-old Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter on the new season of the top-rated Bravo reality series.

In the first episode of the new season of 'Housewives,' Burruss reveals to her cast mate Kim Zolciak that the Miami native flew to Atlanta to meet her. The couple is later seen rock climbing in another scene of the season three premiere.

She admitted that the Pro Bowler and Heisman Trophy finalist was "good looking, a cool guy, and fun," but she expressed her doubt in any serious relationship with McGahee saying "he is in the NFL and athletes are used to girls flocking to them and I'm used to guys flocking to me. Plus, I don't like long distance relationships."

McGahee is slated to earn over $40 million through his seven-year contract with the Baltimore Ravens, but with more money comes more problems.

Off the field, the University of Miami graduate has had a lot of drama with several child support cases. He has three children with three different women. And, is rumored to currently have a live-in girlfriend and another newborn child.

In 2005, two school teachers filed paternity suits against him claiming he fathered their boys. Keisha Walls gave birth to a boy, Kai Walls on April 19, 2006 and Chiniqua Smith gave birth to a boy, Willis McGahee IV, on Jan.6, 2006. The third woman, Dorothy Doretha McNeil previously sued McGahee in 2005 saying he fathered her daughter, Bria McGahee, born Jan. 17, 2005.

He was ruled the biological father – and has since paid child support – for McNeil's daughter and Smith's son. But, it is still unclear whether he is the father of Walls' child. Oddly enough she was married when she hooked up with McGahee, who she says she's been seeing on and off since 2003. It has not been publicly confirmed if McGahee is the father in the third case.

Still, McGahee and Burruss seem to be open to the idea of taking things further even though she proclaimed their current relationship is "nothing too serious."

Cameras show the two on their date discussing the idea of having sex. The Atlanta native tells McGahee that she made a bet with a friend that she could be celibate for one year. To which, he asks "Is oral sex eliminated?" and she said, "No." And he replied, "That's cool" with a sly smile.

Burruss vows to taker her time getting to know the next man who she likes before taking it one step further and having sex.
