‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s’ Porsha Stewart is speaking out about the surprising news that her husband Kordell Stewart secretly filed for divorce. Read on for all the details.
Devoted housewife Porsha Stewart is completely stunned that her husband of nearly two years, former NFL star Kordell Stewart has filed for divorce behind her back. The reality star says she was led to believe that her “king” was committed to saving their marriage.
Porsha Releases Statement
On March 26, a rep for Porsha released the following statement to Us Weekly:
“Mrs. Stewart is disappointed about her husband’s recent filing for divorce. Mrs. Stewart had held off on filing for a divorce herself and remained committed to the marriage because Mr. Stewart promised to work on the marriage with her. Instead, he misled her and she found out about the filing in the media. Mrs. Stewart hopes to resolve these personal issues privately with the support of her family, friends and strong faith.”
Porsha also thanked her supporters via Twitter, writing, “Thank you for your Prayers,” along with an instagram containing the following quote, “Difficult moments, seek God. Quiet moments, worship God. Painful moments, trust God. Every moment, thank God.”
Porsha ‘Completely Blindsided’
According to a friend of Porsha’s, the reality star had absolutely no idea about her husband’s divorce plans.
“She was 100 percent completely blindsided. Friends are trying to contact her but she’s not picking up her phone or returning texts,” says the friend. “Her whole identity is about being a happy, obedient wife. The other women criticized her for not having a backbone but she was like, ‘A real marriage is about honoring your man, your king.’ She is really upset.”
According to TMZ, Kordell filed for divorce on March 22, citing “irretrievably broken”. The athlete also stated that he does not want to pay spousal support because “[She's] an able-bodied person, earning income and is capable of supporting herself.”
Porsha’s Exclusive Interview With HollywoodLife.com
A week prior to the surprising divorce news, Porsha told us that she was working on her marriage with Kordell and that they were still trying to conceive a baby.
When asked if Kordell was controlling, she responded, “Well I don’t have a problem with a man having an opinion. If you’re a man, I need to know where you are leading our family. And I love that about him and along the way, there are some things I agree with and some things I don’t. As long as he can respect my opinion and let me woo him into what I want.”
Kordell basically told Porsha on the show that she had to choose between having kids or her charity work.
