Why Did Kordell Stewart File For Divorce From Porsha?
During tonight's drama-filled Season 6 premiere of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Porsha Stewart made an emotional visit to her attorney to discuss the future of her marriage. Now ex-husband Kordell shocked the ATL beauty when he filed for divorce earlier this year — and to make matters worse, the press knew about the divorce before Porsha did. Scratch that — the entire universe knew. Poor girl found out on Twitter! Can you imagine anything worse?
Although it seems like a reconciliation could be in the cards during the premiere, we know where this is headed — straight to Splitsville. But there's one thing we can't seem to figure out — and that's why.
Kordell himself has yet to speak in detail about his choice to split, (although he has made it clear this was a “very difficult decision”), so we have no choice but to speculate on what would have caused him to initiate the split.
According to All About The Real Housewives, friends of Kordell suggest that Porsha joining RHoAhad a lot to do with the couple's demise. Not only did he hate the way the program was portraying him, but he also cited the show as the reason why Porsha "all of a sudden wanted a 'career.'" But All About TRH's sources claim that the breaking point was that Porsha couldn't get pregnant.
However, Porsha seems to have her own theories, including questions about Kordell's sexuality — rumors that Kordell calls "sad" and "not true at all." After the deposition, Porsha maintains that she was completely blindsided saying, "He had no factual reason, no exact reason to divorce me."
We can't know for sure what went down until either Kordell or Porsha come forward with the truth, but after watching the couple interact last season, we think it's pretty clear that they just weren't on the same page. Kordell obviously wanted a true housewife to stay home and be a mother to his children and not much else, while Porsha wanted to balance her home life with her charity career.
Maybe hanging out with strong, independent women like NeNe Leakes and Kandi Burruss inspired Porsha to be a little less submissive to her man?
