Real Housewives of Atlanta Star Porsha Stewart Was Blindsided By Divorce From Kordell Stewart

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Stewart may be looking for a new place to call home.

The 31-year-old Bravo reality star was blindsided when her husband, retired NFL player Kordell Stewart, filed for divorce from her after only two years of marriage. “Petitioner, after marrying respondent, a cast member on the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta,’ on May 21, 2011, is seeking divorce,” the petition read that was filed, “as the marriage is irretrievably broken.”

The former Steelers player also issued a statement that read, “This is a personal and private 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.”

According to Porsha’s camp, the star had hoped to fix her marriage and avoid a divorce. “Mrs. Stewart is disappointed about her husband’s recent filing for divorce,” stated Porsha’s rep. “Mrs. Stewart had held off on filing for a divorce herself and remained committed to the marriage because Mr. Stewart promised to work on the marriage with her. Instead, he misled her and she found out about the filing in the media. Mrs. Stewart hopes to resolve these personal issues privately with the support of her family, friends and strong faith.”

Porsha and Kordell’s relationship took center stage near the end of the fifth season of Real Housewives of Atlanta as Porsha struggled to get pregnant and other castmates, including NeNe Leakes and Kenya Moore, accused Kordell of being too controlling.

“I can’t say I was shocked—we all knew they had some problems going on. [Kordell] didn’t show up at the reunion,” Moore told TMZ. “It’s unfortunate either way. You never want to see couples breaking up. [Maybe] they can iron some things out in their relationship. Maybe they can still make it work.”

According to sources, there was no prenup. Do you think Kordell and Porsha will work things out?
