Former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback and the ex-husband of "Real Housewives of Atlanta's" Porsha Williams denied a claim that he had an affair with a male Internet celebrity.

"There's no room in my personality for that lifestyle. It's not what I believe in. I'm a heterosexual man," Stewart told TMZ, similar to comments he made to the Rolling Out website.

Last week, actor Andrew Caldwell said on a radio show that he and Stewart dated and they had sex once. This is the same Caldwell who told a religious revival last year that "I'm not gay no more."

Stewart said of Caldwell that "I don't know the guy. I've never heard of him." However, rumors about Stewart being gay have gone back to his playing days with the Steelers in the 1990s, where at one point he allegedly denied them in a team meeting. He also denied these rumors in 2013 when his ex-wife brought them up.

Stewart has always been a jerk about this, using terms like "lifestyle" and saying  that gay rumors "put my masculinity was in question." Being gay is not a "lifestyle," it's not a "belief" and gay men are just as masculine as any man. Caldwell seems like a loon so I don't put much stock into his claim, but I have no sympathy for Stewart, who clearly thinks there's something wrong with being gay.
