‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ star wanted more out of life than just being a stay at home wife. A source close to Porsha tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that when she voiced her concerns to Kordell, the ex NFL star wasn’t having it!

Porsha Stewart has big dreams and wants more out of life than being at Kordell Stewart‘s beck and call. Sources close to Porsha, 31, tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that the Real Housewives of Atlanta star was “tired” of Kordell’s controlling ways.

“Porsha has dreams and ambition, but her man was just too damn controlling and wanted her home all the time, cooking and cleaning and doing chores,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively.

“They don’t have any help at that house and its gigantic. He made her do all the work and I think she got tired of it all and confronted him,” the source adds.

Prior to Porsha joining the Bravo reality show, she was subservient to Kordell. In fact, she’s even said on the show how she treats her husband like a king!

Porsha Stewart Reaches Out To ‘RHOA’ Co-Stars For Advice

Now that Porsha has been hanging with her RHOA co-stars, she’s thinking about her future and has solicited the advice of the other ladies.

“She got around all those strong women on the show like NeNe [Leakes] and Phaedra [Parks] and they gave her advice on her marriage and I think she took what they told her – and got on her high horse and took that to Kordell – but clearly he wasn’t having it. Porsha is a cool girl, don’t get me wrong, but she shouldn’t have let these other rich girls get in her ear about her marriage. If she didn’t, she’d still have a man,” the source says.

Porsha Is Blindsided By Kordell’s Decision To File For Divorce

Porsha said she was completely blindsided by Kordell filing divorce papers in Atlanta on Mar. 22. On March 26, Porsha’s rep released this statement below 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.”

Now it’s your turn to sound off, HollywoodLifers. Should Porsha put her dreams aside and attempt to save her marriage?
