Porsha Williams

My Divorce Is 100% REAL

... But I Wish It Wasn't

5/7/2013 3:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0507_porsha_willaims_kordell_stewart_tmz_articlePorsha Williams says her divorce from former NFL star Kordell Stewart is ABSOLUTELY NOT a publicity stunt or a contrived plotline for "Real Housewives" ... but she wishes it was.

After TMZ broke the story that Kordell pulled the plug on the marriage back in March ... several media outlets called B.S. on the split, claiming it was a cheap P.R. stunt concocted in the hopes they would stay on the show for another season.

But Porsha's rep tells us ... the notion of a phony divorce is "absolutely ridiculous" ... explaining, "Given everything this abrupt divorce filing has put her through in the public, [Porsha] would never bring something like this on herself, especially with them having a child in the house."

The rep adds, "[Porsha] wishes things could have been different [with Kordell] but that simply is not possible.”

We also spoke with Porsha's attorney, Randy Kessler, who says the two sides are trying to keep the split amicable and are working on reaching a separation agreement as quickly as possible. 

The two were married in 2011 and have no children together ... but Kordell has a son from a previous relationship.

Come on Porsha, you should thank your lucky stars he left you. He did not want his reputation damaged anymore on that show !!! Everyone saw right through him, as arrogant and controlling.

Porsha,.....it's a blessing in disguise to be over with that marraige to Cordell. He is so errogant and controlling. Telling you what you can and cant do! I hope that eventually you will be able to see the truth the way others do. Best of luck!

You should thank your lucky stars Porsha. Let this self serving person wallow in his arrogance and ignorance, someone's fooling him, let that not be you. Kinda reminds me of Kanye. You deserve better.

Porsha, I know it hurts but your husband is NOT suppose to be your boss. He is suppose to be your partner. Take your time before your marry again. Try to get to know anyone you date before thinking of committing again. You will be great.

Porsha if you happen to read these comments... If you wanted to keep your marriage, your hubby made it known on national TV his wishes were for a stay at home wife/mom... You made your choice... I don't understand why women are in such a rush to get a career when your husband works so that you can have a comfortable life taking care of your family. Who knows maybe after having a baby you would realize that a career and time away from home can wait! You admired the other women on the show for balancing both (they're all much older than you!!!) and had established careers already. It was sad to watch you compare yourself to them... Stay strong.

I feel very bad for Porsha. Nobody goes into a marriage expecting it to implode in less than two years. I hopes she gets a good husband next time.

Well... Porsha lost the baby so Kordell feels released from a trap. That's the bottom line. If she were willing to play wifey to the hilt or got prego again right away he might have kept her. As it happened, no way.

I believe the divorce is FAKE!

Why would Kordell divorce her when throughout her time on the show she defended, respected and agreed to his wishes as to what type of wife she and he wanted her to be.

If anything, Kordell should be RENEWING their wedding vows!

I believe Porshe knew she may have been on the chopping block so they came up with this "divorce" for drama to stay on the show.

MARK MY WORDS: "they ain't getting no divorce!!"

Because he was coming off controlling on the show and in turn tried to control her by making her quit and when she said no he Filed for Divorce. Good riddance. She's way too good for him.

Staying home raising YOUR children is YOUR job!!!! Why have a kid you have no intentions on raising yourself? Yes, women wanting careers it's great to have a plan, and be financially independent, however I never understand how some women are not even pregnant but already have their kid enrolled in day care? Any maternal instincts out there? LoL... I guess not! No wonder society has gone to crap, mommy and daddy are both busy being SUCCESSFUL... Yay.
