Fans of The Real Housewives of Atlanta were shocked by the news that Kordell Stewart, husband of cast member Porsha Stewart, had filed for divorce on March 22, but Wetpaint Entertainment can reveal the move came as no surprise for family members and close friends of the couple.

According to one insider, Kordell’s actions and words over the past few weeks gave the distinct impression the marriage was doomed.

“Kordell skipped the Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion taping on March 13,” the insider exclusively tells Wetpaint Entertainment. “All the husbands and significant others were there, but he opted not to go. So that was very telling.”

Shortly after that, Kordell started referring to his union with Porsha in the past tense.

“The show highlighted their marriage in a big way,” the insider continues. “And with their first season now over, a lot of people were asking him how he and Porsha were doing. The phrase he kept using was, ‘It’s a wrap!’ I thought he had meant it in terms of them being wrapped up with filming – but I now realize he was actually talking about their marriage.”

“Porsha’s got to be devastated,” the insider concludes. “Her whole identity is about being Kordell’s partner, and I know she really wanted to start a family with him. They were actively trying. This is going to be a huge blow.”
