Porsha Stewart Talks Divorce With Andy Cohen: “He Was In The Other Room When I Found Out”

Porsha Stewart Talks Divorce With Andy Cohen: “He Was In The Other Room When I Found Out”

Last night on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live, Real  Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Stewart talked with Andy Cohen about feeling betrayed by her husband’s divorce filing. The Georgia peach found out via Twitter that Kordell served her with divorce papers. I wonder if he was talking to his boss about his coins was the REAL reason he wasn’t there at the reunion. MAJOR SIDE-EYE!! Peep what Porsha had to say!

On Kordell filing: 

“I was totally blindsided. At the reunion I did  feel some kind of way because I did want my husband there with me. But I was  standing strong representing for my family. I was a wife. That’s my title. And  that’s what I took ownership of. When I found out about the divorce it was  absolutely a surprise.”

“I was laying in the bed and I woke up and I  tweeted ‘Today is the first day of the rest of your life.’ I put the phone down  and I took another nap like I always do sometimes and I looked back at my phone  and my sister was calling me over and over. She said ‘Have you heard?’ and I’m  like ‘Heard what?’ So I said let me go back to Twitter. The first thing I see is  ‘Kordell divorcing Porsha.’ And I’m thinking this is just a crazy joke. Yeah, I  found out from Twitter. I called my sister back and said ‘I’m going to ask him  about it.’”

On confronting  Kordell: 

“I went in there and I asked him. He was there [in  the other room]. And I asked my husband, I asked him had he filed. Just a long  story short, I felt very disappointed and let down. When I got married I meant  it for life. I always said I would never get a divorce unless he cheated on me  or something like that. He didn’t [tell my why]. First of all, I had to find out  from my attorney that it was true. We looked it up online, found out that it was  true that he had actually filed. I was just heartbroken. I am still right now.  I’m a brave woman and I know that I’m living this out in front of the world  because of the way it was done. You know, on the Internet, I’m in the public eye and  everybody knows about it.”

On living together:

“Yes [we’re still living together]. I’m from  Atlanta. I’m born and raised in Atlanta. I have friends and family so I spend  time away, I spend time home. It’s a  difficult situation right now. It’s something that I did not want at all. I had  asked ‘Can we work this out?’, ‘Can we go to counseling?’ What you saw at the  reunion was a wife trying her last try. When you are married you need to put  150% into your marriage, no matter what. And if it doesn’t work, you need to be  able to walk away and say, ‘I tried.’ I feel at the end of the day that it was  just a betrayal that I suffered from and that’s something I’m going to have to  move on with. But at least I know I put in my best.”

“We’re in the same house. I didn’t say we speak  and I didn’t say I’m cooking. It ain’t no eggs and bacon and ham hocks no  mo’.”
