In news that should come as a surprise to no one, Porsha Williams-StewartÂ and her husbandÂ Kordell Stewart are getting a divorce. The part of this that actuallyÂ isÂ surprising is the fact that Kordell was the one to file. We came to know this blissful coupleÂ when they joined the fifth season ofÂ The Real Housewives of Atlanta, where we fell in love with their inequal relationship, Kordell’s controlling nature, and the fact that he didn’t empathize with Porsha when she suffered a miscarriage. It was a really beautiful union.
Kordell, a former star NFL quarterback, apparently filed for divorce on March 22nd of this year, claiming that the marriage is ‘irretrievably broken’. Well I’m not surprised, considering the way you’ve been swinging that jackhammer around in here. Frankly, I’m surprised it lasted this long. Porsha and Kordell were married on May 21st, 2011, so they’ve been together a little less than two years, as of the filing. According to an insider, a big part of the reasoning behind it is that Kordell felt that Porsha’s participation on RHOA subjected their relationship to ‘undue scrutiny’. He apparently told Porsha to quit the show, which may explain why she’s absent from the upcoming reunion — although her excuse at the time was ‘other obligations’. Kordell isn’t interested in paying Porsha any spousal support, as he claims:
â€ś[She's] an able-bodied person, earning income and is capable of supporting herself.”
I’m sure that she is, but she probably won’t have enough money to get by now that she’sÂ allowed to go to Vegas by herself. Don’t you think you should stick around and makes sure she buys the sparkly-est dresses you like and doesn’t go above her allowance for the week? Isn’t that what a husband (estranged or no) is for, Kordell? Porsha’s just a woman; how will she manage on her own? What if she stupidly decides to have a baby even though there’s no man in her life? There are so many ways this could go wrong! I’m panicking just hearing about it!
Luckily, Kordell is also saying there are no marital assets to divide, which suggests the estranged pair have a prenuptial agreement. So hopefully Porsha will be out of her hyper-controlling relationship post-haste. Eat your yams, girl.
