Porsha Stewart Found out About Divorce on Twitter, Doesn’t Blame Split on RHOA
Reality star Porsha Stewart is clearly still a newbie to Real Housewives of Atlanta, but although she didn’t get into too many beefs during her first season, it would be her marriage that would make headlines post the ending of season five. On camera, fans of the show watched her interaction with husband Kordell, and to many it just seemed like he was just too controlling. Porsha defended her marriage in numerous interviews and claimed she didn’t believe Kordell was controlling, but in the end Kordell would be the one to end the marriage when he filed for divorce behind her back. Porsha made it clear through her spokesperson that she felt blindsided by the filing considering Kordell asked her to stay with him and work on their marriage. The reality star has given her very first interview since the divorce filing, and she tells Andy Cohen and Vivica Fox on Watch What Happens Live that she found out about the divorce on Twitter and they were actually in the house together the moment the news broke:
“When I found out about the divorce, it was absolutely a surprise. I was laying in the bed and I Tweeted ‘today is the first day of the rest of your life’. I put the phone down and took a little nap and I looked back at my phone and my sister was calling me over and over. She said ‘have you heard’ and I’m like ‘hear what?’.”
Porsha says she went to the other room of the house that Kordell was in at the time and attempted to ask him if he had filed for divorce:
“Long story short, I was very disappointed and let down. When I got married, I meant it for life. I always said I’d never get a divorce unless he cheated on me or something like that. I was heartbroken. Like I am still right now. I’m a brave woman and I know I’m living this out in front of the world because of the way it was done.”
Porsha also confirmed that she and Kordell are still living together but she has plenty of relatives and close friends near by to spend time with when she needs to get away:
“I’m from Atlanta. I have friends and family, so I spend time away, I spend time at home. It’s a difficult, difficult situation right now. It’s something I did not want at all. ” Porsha reveals that she had asked Kordell if they could try to work things out with counseling. She says “what you saw at the reunion was a wife trying one last try. When you are married, I feel like you have to put your 150% in to your marriage, no matter what. And if it doesn’t work, you need to be able to walk away and say ‘I tried’. It ain’t always gonna be easy, it ain’t always gonna be a happy situation. But when you have made a vow to that man and that child (Kordell’s son) you have at home, you owe them that. So I feel like at the end of the day it was just a betrayal that I suffered from and that’s something I’m going to have to move on with, but at least I know that I put in my best at the end of the day.”
She also adds that they are not on speaking terms and she no longer fulfills her wifely duties such as cooking:
“I didn’t say we speak and I didn’t say I’m cookin’. Ain’t no eggs and bacon and ham hocks no mo’.”
In addition to talking about being blindsided by the divorce, Porsha said that she doesn’t feel like the show was the cause of her divorce. She even revealed that she believes their problems started way before RHOA.
