Kordell Stewart Files For Divorce From PorshaApparently all is not well in the Stewart household. According to Access Atlanta, Kordell Stewart filed for divorce from Porsha on March 22 in Fulton County:

From the filing:

“Petitioner, after marrying respondent, a cast member on the “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” on May 21, 2011, is seeking divorce as the marriage is irretrievably broken.”

We’ve had plenty of Clutch articles on the Kordell’s controlling personality and Porsha’s “not so bright” demeanor, but it’s never a good day when you hear that a couple is getting divorced.

Hopefully this doesn’t turn into an ugly situation for either of them.

    Maybe this is because I’m a man but… calling the man controlling because he believes in wearing the pants in the household instead of the wife, then insisting that she be a mother (being that they are both wanting a child) instead of getting a nanny to actually raise their child(ren) and chasing the dream of being a singer (a singer?) is bad?

    If that’s what controlling and possessive is, then I’m that all day. I’m the man. Period. That’s my space and that’s my function.

    BEFORE the reality TV show she had a role. She had a choice. She knew what it was. If she wanted access to him, his person, his wealth, his cache as it were then she would have to be a stay at home mom or housewife, that is it. She knew that going in. Acting on a reality show is a JOB. Now the job is opening doors… she’s not trying to close those doors. What is she going to do? What do you suggest Kordell Stewart do? It seems that Mr. Stewart was trying to get his wife to understand that to him he wasn’t interested in the type of woman who would try to handle being HIS wife, the mother of THEIR kids AND pursue her singing/television career. Essentially Mr. Stewart has the right to say that this is not the type of woman that he wants. Initially she was OK being the mother and housewife but she changed her mind. That show exposed the flaws in his marriage. He chose unwisely. He wants out. Case closed.

    She made her decision and that’s OK. He’s making his case and that’s OK too… she can do the show as a divorcee it seems. There don’t even have to be any hard feelings about it either. I’ve heard numerous women justify marrying men with money as “marriage is simply a business proposition at the end of the day” what’s love got to do with it. So when 70% of divorces are initiated by women, some of them must not feel that the business works to their benefit anymore.

    Could it be that the same thing is happening in this situation?

    Here is an example of what was called ‘controlling’.

    1. Kordell says, “No disrespect to what you are doing, I’d like you to come home earlier.” That’s controlling? He’s stating his preference to his WIFE.

    2. “Consider your time… we have talked about having kids and making some little Kordells and Porshas. Are you ready to take on this infant?” (I think that’s reasonable) Porsha replies “I would feel like when we get a baby we can get a nanny.” Kordell then asks. “So it will be raised by a nanny? That’s okay?” It’s controlling to want the mother of your children to actually raise your children? Also, he’s asking a question in plain English.

    3. Kordell took issue with Bailey. “I get so upset when you two are getting so heated.” Kordell says that the RHOA women need to “just try to be steady”. (Pretty sound advice but again… I’m a man. I don’t understand all of the cattiness either over the smallest of things.)

    While all I know is what they showed on TV (mostly via blogs and articles and even that is subject to interpretation because editing can make something seem like something else), they just don’t look like a good match at this stage of their relationship and needed to grow a bit more without the bright lights of television. This is not just because of age, even though I think that they got along well and they actually loved one another. She was young and pretty and he was rich and famous so after some laughs and some exchanging of fluid, they got married and then the show came about then it was “Oh shit, we have different views of married life.” even though it was known going in what Kordell Stewart’s expectations were AND she agreed to said expectations. She even admitted for the first year of their marriage she stayed at home and did nothing but get catered to by the staff. I truly believe that the “career woman” position was because of the show. She knew what he wanted, she agreed to it then she broke their “deal” it seems. I didn’t think he was controlling to her, he’s just plain spoken and in a time where people try so hard to come across a certain way, it can be jarring to see someone who doesn’t give a flying flip.

    Ladies, you CAN have it all, you CANNOT have it all at one time. It simply does not work. Raise your children THEN get a career. Start your career THEN have children when they have been raised a bit. If I’m a hiring manager and I have 2 women in front of me, both 31 years old with the same education and experience but 1 has a 9 year old and a 7 year old and the other has no children who do you think I’m going to hire? Exactly, the woman who already has children.

    Regarding her taking him to the bank in this divorce (if it even happens) she started cashing in on his name from the minute they got engaged. She got on that Platinum Weddings show because of their lavish wedding. She got on Housewives because of the fact that she was married to a baller and had a life of a rich housewife. Basically by marrying her, he set her up to have a better career than she would have ever had on her own. Now she can go on and do her reality shows. No one was trying to put her on TV before Kordell. He cleaned her up, got her fancy clothes and helped her launch her career. That more than compensates her for her time and service. Plus now she’s bankable and makes that RHOA check. He set her up for a life in show biz… which is clearly what she wanted. Besides, they’ve only been married 22 months. She’ll get enough to take a good vacation and go on a shopping spree and that’s about it.

    As for Kordell Stewart supposedly being gay. From my perspective, with this rumor going on over a decade, so many “knowledgeable” people, this modern age of attention whoring being at it’s peak, the fact that no one, not one person has said “Yeah, I fuck/fucked/fuck with Kordell Steward and here are the texts/emails/letters to prove it” is telling. Not one celebrity/politician that’s had some ‘issue’ on the side has been able to keep it quiet for too long. Jump-offs have been running out at light speed to get some talk show/TMZ shine. So where is Stewart’s Gay lover(s)?

      I pressed report comment button by accident..sorry!!

      Umm, surely that’s discrimination? You don’t know her plans, what if she doesn’t want any children…you won’t hire her because of the off chance that she MIGHT want children?

      I agree with the fist two sentences though. Women need to understand that kids are a responsibility, not a right, and if you don’t have time for them, don’t have them. Men need to understand that as well though – raising children is a 2 parent responsibility and if either parent works so much that they can’t see their kids, maybe it’s best to wait until you can be involved in your child’s life.

      Thank you for your response. You said:

      “Umm, surely that’s discrimination? You don’t know her plans, what if she doesn’t want any children…you won’t hire her because of the off chance that she MIGHT want children?”

      There is discrimination in ALL facets of life. There is definitely discrimination in the job market. It simply is. Why cannot a 25 year old be the President of the USA? Is that discrimination? Why do insurance premiums drop because an individual turns 25 years old? Is that discrimination? Regarding the employment discrimination, employers discriminate constantly. Employers are FAR more likely to hire a married man than a single man. That’s discrimination however it’s understood. Employers are far more likeThere are a multitude of examples of acceptable discrimination that we simply deem valid because in most instances they are. To be discriminating is not necessarily a bad thing.

      “I agree with the fist two sentences though. Women need to understand that kids are a responsibility, not a right, and if you don’t have time for them, don’t have them. Men need to understand that as well though – raising children is a 2 parent responsibility and if either parent works so much that they can’t see their kids, maybe it’s best to wait until you can be involved in your child’s life.”

      I agree. I see no flaw in this position.
