With all the bickering withPhaedra Parks, naturally we all assumed that's who NeNe wanted exiled to the Island of Lost Housewives. But in a preview of this Sunday's hour-long WWHL special, NeNe reveals it was actually Porsha Stewart she wanted fired!
"Yes, I did feel that Porsha at that time needed to leave the show because there was something – I'm a good judge of character; I've been blessed, child, I've been given a gift – and I kept feeling like Porsha and Kordell were not being real enough," NeNe admits.
Our Lady of Polyester Hairtells In Touch Weekly that her friendship with NeNe is amazing. Their relationship is even “better off camera than it is on. We're in a really good place."
“We didn't really spend the time to communicate during the show," theReal Housewives of Atlantastar shares. “Finally we realized there is really a lot of ‘he said-she said’ stuff.” At the recent Bravo Upfronts, witnesses report that Kim was anxiously awaiting NeNe's arrival so they could hang out.
Wigs & Cigs even goes so far as to compare their friendship to a marriage! “I think the reunion was kind of a turning point,” Kim gushes “Also me leaving the show. It's like being married, right? You kind of start to take your partner for granted after twenty years. I think that was how NeNe and I kind of were.”
It's been a big few weeks for Real Housewives of Atlanta gossip…some good, some not so good. While the Bravo franchise had the worthy distinction of being the network's most watched show to date, newbie Porsha Stewart faced the news that husband Kordell was filing for divorce. In light of this terrible situation, Porsha did what any good housewife would do. She put on a brave face at the Bravo Upfronts presentation. Kudos to her for trying to maintain some normalcy…or at least what's normal in the life of a reality star!
Meanwhile, Phaedra Parks is looking forward to baby boy number two with husbandApollo Nida. Putting the much talked about Bootygate aside, the lawyer/mortician/over-the-top personality took some time to chat about her latest endeavors…mainly her expanding family. Let's hear the good stuff first!
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.
Kordell's court documents (filed March 22nd) cited that the marriage was "irretrievably broken." The couple does not have a prenup, despite Kordell's NFL past but he is already contesting paying alimony to the Real Housewives of Atlanta star.
The documents declare: "[She’s] an able-bodied person, earning income and is capable of supporting herself." His filing also says there are no marital assets to divide.
Kordell's attorney released a statement saying he hopes "everyone understands" it was a “very difficult decision." "Kordell’s ongoing concern has been and remains his son’s best interest.” Kordell has a son from a previous relationship.
Kordell and Porsha have been seen having issues throughout the season. Several women on the show expressed concern that Kordell is controlling. The couple does not have prenup so this should be interesting and they have been married less than five years.
