I have to say that as I was watching a marathon Real Housewives of Atlanta on Friday, and it was odd to see the scenes of Porsha Stewart and husband Kordell seemingly happy when the news just broke that the couple was seeking a divorce. The former NFL quarterback filed papers last week claiming that the couple is now separated and their marriage is "irretrievably broken."
The pair were married in May of 2011, and rumors are now swirling that Porsha was straying too far from her role of traditional wife. When Porsha and Kordell met, she was a preacher at High Praise Christian Center Ministries in Lithonia, Georgia. On RHOA, Porsha touts herself as a trophy wife.

According to Enstarz, Porsha's transformation from preacher to arm candy is the main reason behind Kordell's divorce filing. Porsha once commented in an interview that being a trophy wife wasn't entirely about looks, explaining, "It's about the man who has put you on the pedestal and him admiring you and thinking well enough of you to put you up there."
Porsha has shared in the past that she's been working on a project about her marriage, and she describes it by saying, "It'll be about relationships for sure and it'll just speak to that, speak to love and the struggles, and the ups and the downs and the great moments, all of that. It'll be something that — a soundtrack to our life." Maybe that project has been put on hold…
The night before filing for divorce, Kordell shared some family time at Dave & Busters with his ex-girlfriend and the pair's son. Sources tell TMZ that the duo seemed to be in a very serious conversation, and cited that Kordell looked very stressed.
The same site is reporting the Porsha was initially blindsided by her husband's filing, but now she's fighting back. In Kordell's documents, he claimed that Porsha didn't deserve any spousal support because she was capable of making her own income. Porsha's attorneys are now saying that the reality star quit her job and sold a business when the pair wed so that she could stay home and take care of the son he had from a previous relationship. In addition to alimony, Porsha also wants exclusive use of their Atlanta home. Something tells me this divorce has the potential to get ugly!
