Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Stewart can’t keep a man either.
After boasting about knowing her place in the household, Porsha is the latest housewife headed to divorce. Former NFL player Kordell Stewart has filed for divorce from Porsha of nearly two years of marriage, TMZ reports.
In court documents, Kordell said the marriage is “irretrievably broken” and claims the two are currently separated. Kordell requested that no spousal support be given because “[She’s] an able-bodied person, earning income and is capable of supporting herself.” He claims there are no martial assets subject to division.
During the season of Real Housewives of Atlanta, the couple’s relationship was often criticized by their costars. Many in the group found Kordell to be too controlling. NeNe Leakes shared her opinion on the show and her blog.
“I don’t want to judge Porsha’s relationship, because I obviously don’t live with them,” Leakes wrote. “I can only tell you what these eyes and ears hear and see. I watch the show just like you do, so based off everything I’ve seen and heard myself, it appears that Kordell is talking to his daughter and not his wife!
Leakes continued, “Porsha can’t seem to do much without getting permission from Kordell. This is not my relationship, so if Porsha likes it, I love it, and I really don’t give a sh–– what Porsha and Kordell do!”
After news broke about the divorce, Leakes tweeted:
Kordell and Porsha tried to convince their costars and fans that he wasn’t controlling, but it didn’t work. Once the controlling issues seemed to die down other issues came into play on the show. Porsha wanted to have a baby while she continued her career as a philanthropist and a reality star, but Kordell wanted her to choose.
Kordell reportedly didn’t want Porsha to do anymore reality television because he thought it was bad for his reputation and it was putting a strain on their marriage.
Funky Dineva reports that his son’s mother Tania Richardson appeared on the show a few seasons ago. She is former housewife Sheree Whitfield’s friend.
Tania was supposed to have a much larger role on Real Houswives of Atlanta but Kordell allegedly didn’t want her or their child, Syre, to participate.
