After the shocking news broke about a split between “Real Housewives of Atlanta” newlyweds, Porsha and Kordell Stewart, the couple and co-stars reacted to the overwhelming reaction with support and explanations.
“This is a personal and private family matter for Kordell and his family. This was a very difficult decision for Kordell. I hope everyone understands. Kordell’s ongoing concern has been and remains his son’s best interest,” read a statement released by Kordell’s lawyer via HipHollywood.com.
After it all surfaced, the former football player did tweet, “I appreciate your support,” to a fan who believed “RHOA” put Kordell in a bad light and wanted him to stay strong.
On season 6 of the hit show, Kordell has come across as a bit controlling, much to the dismay of NeNe Leakes and Cynthia Bailey, but they’re not the only ones who commented on his demeanor towards his wife. Kenya Moore and Kandi Burruss, who later apologized, also shared a few thoughts about their marriage. Since then, episodes have shown the two disagreeing about having a child. While Kordell doesn’t want Porsha to hire any help for any tiny tots they may have, she would like to continue pursuing her career goals and have a nanny’s assistance. They even sought professional help, but apparently that did not resolve their issues.
Porsha, who tweeted on March 24, “A Marriage can last forever when two people decide to remain as one and conquer trials & tribulations together! #teamstewarts #faith #RHOA,” took to social media again hours after the news hit the media, “Thank you for your Prayers,” wrote Porsha, who is putting her faith in God’s hands during this hard time.
US Magazine reported that an upset Porsha was “completely blindsided” by the divorce news.
The new bubbly spirit added on the show this season got along with most, but even foe Kenya Moore showed her support towards Porsha. “Even though @porshadstewart and I have had our differences, I would never want to see anyone in pain. I wish her well,” Kenya tweeted. NeNe Leakes took time to also tweet about her “RHOA” cast mate. “I’am good judge of character! I will stand by & support my little sister @PorshaDStewart,” NeNe said. Cynthia was also there to give encouraging words. “@PorshaDStewart Stay strong and keep reaching for the stars
