Porsha Stewart divorce: 'Real Housewives' star talks split (Video)
"Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Porsha Stewart opened up about her impending divorce from her estranged husband Kordell Stewart and revealed that she learned about her husband filing for divorce on Twitter.
The reality star appeared on "Watch What Happens Live" on Sunday, April 21. She said the divorce filing was "absolutely a surprise" and described the moment she found out about her husband's actions. Video of her appearance can be viewed below.
"I was laying in the bed and I woke up and Tweeted, 'Today is the first day of the rest of your life' and I put the phone down and I took another nap, like I always do sometimes," Porsha told host Andy Cohen. and I look back at my phone and my sister was calling me over and over and she said, 'Have you heard?' I'm like, 'Heard what?'"
"I said, 'Ok, let me go back to Twitter.' I went to Twitter and the first thing I see is 'Kordell divorcing Porsha,'" she added.
Porsha also told Cohen that Kordell was in another room in the same house when she found out. She added that she was "very disappointed" and "heartbroken" by his decision.
"When I got married, I meant it for life. Like I always said I would never get a divorce unless he cheated on me, you know, or something like that," Porsha said.
Porsha also said the two are still living together despite the split but are not on speaking terms.
"It's something that I did not want at all. Like I had asked, 'Can we work this out? Can we go to counseling?' What you saw at the reunion was a wife trying her last try," Porsha said. "When you are married, I feel like you have to put your 150 percent into your marriage no matter what. And if it doesn't work, you need to be able to walk away and say, 'I tried.' No matter what."
Kordell, a former NFL player, filed for divorce on March 22. In his filing, Kordell said that his marriage was "irretrievably broken." Kordell and Porsha wed on May 21, 2011, and Kordell has a son from a previous relationship.
Porsha joined "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" during season 5. It was recently announced that her reality show co-star NeNe Leakes is getting her own spin-off series that will focus on her upcoming second wedding to ex-husband Gregg Leakes. The new show will debut in the fall.
