‘RHOA’ Star Porsha Stewart Blindsided By Divorce

Kordell Porsha Stewart DivorceThere’s tough times ahead for Real Housewives of Atlanta newbie Porsha Stewart, but she’s prayed up, according to her Instagram.

News broke yesterday (Mar. 26) that Stewart’s husband, former NFL player Kordell Stewart, filed for divorce last week unbeknownst to the 31-year-old reality TV personality.

“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,” Porsha’s rep said in a statement. “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.”

The couple’s troubles are currently being highlighted on the Bravo TV hit, where they are seeking therapy after having disagreements about starting a family. The other castmates, especially NeNe Leakes, have been vocal about Kordell’s controlling behavior.

“I can’t say I was shocked — we all knew they had some problems going on. [Kordell] didn’t show up at the reunion,” fellow RHOA star Kenya Moore told TMZ. “It’s unfortunate either way. You never want to see couples breaking up. [Maybe] they can iron some things out in their relationship. Maybe they can still make it work.”

Kordell and Porsha were married less than two years.
