Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Stewart says her divorce was such a surprise that she found out about it on Twitter even though she was still living with her estranged husband, Kordell Stewart.
After watching herself defend Kordell Stewart on part three of The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion, Porsha took the chair on Watch What Happens Live to dish all about the breakdown on the marriage.
Porsha Stewart revealed that they’re still living together but horribly, they no longer speak at all.
“I’m blessed. I’m good. I’m here, I’m standing and I’m just being strong right now,” Porsha Stewart said positively as she began her chat.
The reality star then recalled the first moment she knew she was getting divorced after said she got a phone call from her sister, telling her to check Twitter.
“I thought, <<this is just a crazy joke!>>” Porsha Stewart, who had thought that the couple were working it through, said.
“I asked my husband … had he filed, and just a long story short, I felt very disappointed and let down,” the reality star told presenter Andy Cohen.
“When I got married, I meant it for life. … I was heartbroken,” Porsha Stewart added before explaining that she still lives with Kordell.
But it doesn’t sound like much of a choice, as she added: “It’s a difficult situation right now. It’s something I did not want at all.”
“What you saw on the reunion was a wife trying her last try,” Porsha Stewart said.
“When you’ve made a vow to that man and that child in your home, you owe him that. … It was a betrayal I suffered from, and that’s something I’ll have to move on with.”
Former NFL quarterback Kordell Stewart, 40, lodged legal papers at Fulton County Superior Court in Georgia on March 22, TMZ reports.
Just three months ago Real Housewives Of Atlanta Porsha Stewart, the granddaughter of civil-rights leader Hosea Williams, defended her husband during a radio interview when asked about rumors he was gay.
Power 105 FM’s Breakfast Club host Charlemagne Tha God asked Porsha Stewart in the December exchange: “You know there were a lot of gay rumors about Kordell at one point. He [allegedly] got caught in the park in Pittsburgh and the police didn’t want to turn him in because he was a star quarterback.”
Porsha Stewart responded: “I don’t know any details of all that. There’s lies out there on the Internet about all kinds of celebrities.
“One thing I do [know] is my husband loves me, and he puts it down and I will be with him forever. He’s more man to me than I have ever met.”
Porsha and Kordell Stewart married on May 21, 2011. Early in 2012 Porsha suffered a miscarriage due to uterine fibroids.
In the divorce documents, Kordell Stewart says the marriage is “irretrievably broken” and that they separated, according to TMZ.
He also says there are no marital assets to be divided, suggesting a prenuptial was signed, writing: “[She’s] an able-bodied person, earning income and is capable of supporting herself.”
Kordell Stewart, who is now a radio sports talkshow co-host with Atlanta’s WZGC 92.9 The Game, has a son Syre from a previous relationship with Tania Richardson.
