‘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?

He didn’t do anything wrong by asking for divorce; women do it all the time. He can always get another good looking woman, she can’t go out there and get a $22 million man to fund her lifestyle and that’s why she’s so hurt— her bank is gone!!!

Well, well, well when Katie Holmes divorced Tom Cruise the same way no one had a problem with it. When a man does the same thing it becomes evil. She shouldn’t whine over losing a marriage she claims was no good. If she’s all that she’ll get a good man with a snap of her fingers.

Kordell is a coward .No man would sneak around and divorce his wife and not let her know but put it on twitter. I hope no other woman gets caught up with him, he is not worth the hurt and pain he brought Porsha. Kordell, your time is coming and it won’t be anything like what you did to Porsha. Good luck Porsha, you are a beautiful young lady and deserve a good man, not another father.

Porsha should have been able to do something for herself. She did not need the input of NENE Leakes & them about her marriage. NeNE is a strong woman, but her comments were detrimental. Porsha could have ran a local store & hired employees. She could have remained married. Kordell is barking like a loud dog now, but in a few years, he’ll be purring like a little kitten as he ages. Porsha would have grown at her own rate, she would have been running things. I’m sorry that she has had to experience all this mess. People like NENE has advice, but when you follow that type of advice do you get to live with her when you lose your home. Kordell is nasty in an old type of way, but men do not want to be disrespected. Once you disrespect a man in a certain way, he don’t want you anymore–it’s just fact. NENE played it safe by being friendly to Porsha pretending to a support system. Porsha was played. You just have to be careful who you listens to when your husband has 22 million dollars. Everyone has advice,but you have to make sure that advice blesses, not curses you. I’ll bet one of the advisers cousin will try & date Kordell. Don’t get played by others especially when you have more stuff than them. Every smiling face is not friendly. Kordell was the only man on that show who could actually take care of his wife. They had problems, but who do not. Their problems could have been worked out. You cannot have others stirring your pot of soup because you cannot say if they’ll slip something else into the pot while you’re not looking. Haters are everywhere.

No, she shouldn’t put her dreams on hold. She’s young, beautiful and has no kids. And if he doesn’t understand that then he needs to kick every rock in sight. What man doesn’t want his wife to be independent and bring something to the table. See, he feels that as long as he’s bringing home the Bacon she has to do as she’s told. He wants her to be dependant on him. If she make her own money, she can make her own moves without him. He’s very shallow and insecure, if u ask me. He just want her as his trophy wife. He knows that once she start shining that his controlling ways is gonna be shoved where the sun don’t shine. Catch fire kordell
