NeNe Leakes has provided more than moral support to Porsha Stewart in her divorce. She gave the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” newbie the name of a good lawyer!
CoocoaFab.com reports that Porsha has secured Randall Kessler as her divorce attorney in the sudden split from her husband Kordell Stewart. Randall also represented NeNe in her divorce from Gregg Leakes.
Randall revealed that the Porsha and Kordell aren’t wasting any time on their divorce proceedings; the pair and their lawyers will gather for a preliminary meeting on April 24, according to court documents
“Typically there is a lot that happens but I can tell you that there will be a status conference where the parties get together and talk, and the court helps direct them to work towards a resolution,” Randall said.
“I know [Kordell's] attorney very well and I have worked with him in the past and we will work with him in this case to the extent that his client allows,” he added. “She learned that her husband filed for divorce by reading it in the press and wishes he would have told her first. She is very disappointed that her husband has mislead her in this way.”
Randall added that given the fact that they’ve shared their lives with the world for the last few months on “RHOA,” he feels that might give Porsha an edge in the divorce negotiations.
“The short answer is that evidence is evidence,” he said. “If you’re on a security camera and we get it, or if you’re on reality television and that’s taped, that’s evidence as well.”
Supposedly they’re gearing up for a $16 million divorce battle because that’s how Kordell is estimated to be worth. “We will use our best efforts to resolve this privately,” said Randall. “But she has hired us to protect her interests and we intend to do so.”
