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 know what y'all are watching on Bravo, that's for sure. The ladies of Real Housewives of Atlanta continue to break records in their fifth season…with all the drama there is a reason RHOA is the network's most watched show! Close your legs to married men, WIG!
The women of the Peach State are notorious for bringing the crazy both on and off screen, and we've watched several of them work their way up from practically nothing to be huge success stories. Of course, it goes both ways with some of the former ladies living far above their means. Whether they are decorating ginormous marble-ladden, diamond encrusted houses of tackiness, drafting friendship contracts or recording catchy songs (Gone with the Wind Fabulous, anyone?), the ladies of RHOA are totally addicting!
Last night was the season finale of Real Housewives of Atlanta. I would say it was a little sweet and a little classy, but it wasn't. It was mostly a lotta ratchet.
See Kenya Moore threw the big end of the season party. And at Kenya's party she wants things her way – or the highway. Well, parking lot at least. Kenya decided her Atlanta "coming out" event would be an Iconic Black Women In Film gala. She assigned all the ladies of RHOA a character because there was to be some sort of performance associated with the role. The only performing I saw was a low-budget runway show in which they all waltzed up on stage did a couple hip pops and sat back down on a folding chair in the audience. Apparently that's how Krayonce defines a play though cause she was two shades of bent out of bootyshape about Porsha Stewart coming in the wrong costume.
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.
Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
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.
