Okay, I am going to give y’all a place to talk about the news of Porsha and Kordell’s divorce. As of right now, I don’t know much more about it than you guys do, but we can at least have a place to share.
EDITED TO ADD A STATEMENT FROM PORSHA’S REP: “Mrs. Stewart is disappointed about her husband’s recent filing for divorce. 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.”
Last night I was crazy busy with blogging. I was also reading Porsha’s timeline after everything calmed down. Had it been a less busy night for me, I would have blogged about that. Porsha was RTing lots of her supporters. I found that interesting because when I was exhausted last night and went to my TL, there were several really kind tweets and I RTed them. It’s nice after a long day to have some kind words. This made me sensitive to the amount of RTs Porsha has been doing lately. It’s like she is reinforcing to herself that people support her. RTing compliments is a way of saying, “See? People like me!” She also answered a fan asking if she was returning for another season with “I haven’t decided yet.” I am not sure that the RHOA contracts have gone out yet. Bravo seems to be going later and later with the time between the reunion and the contracts. RHONY has not put out any contracts yet and it’s been ages since their reunion. My understanding there is that they want to switch RHONY over to film in warmer weather and are holding contracts until filming dates are in place.
Anyway, I feel badly for Porsha. She was working so hard to be the perfect wife and step-mother. She desperately wanted to have kids with Kordell. He was the center of her life. However, ever since she came on the show there have been rumors about Kordell that date back to his football playing years. The other housewives were not very welcoming to Kordell. Peter, who seemed to worship Kordell at the beginning of the season, ended the season at Kordell’s throat. It seemed that the more the cast got to know Kordell, the less they liked him. Perhaps there was more to it than the excuse they gave of Kordell being “controlling.”
When I heard the news this morning I instantly thought of this article. It was very clear to me in the preseason press that Phaedra and Porsha did that Phaedra did not care for Porsha at all and did not even bother to pretend otherwise. All season I have been predicting a knockdown dragout with Phaedra and Porsha that so far has not occurred. I find it very strange that as sweet and ditzy and most importantly non-threatening Porsha is, not one single RHOA reached out to befriend her. Not one. What are we missing here?
My thoughts are with Porsha. She must be devastated.
