Kordell Stewart surprised his wife Porsha with divorce papers last week, and by all accounts, the 31-year-old Real Housewives of Atlanta star was not prepared to end her two-year marriage.
“Thank you for your prayers,” Porsha wrote from her Instagram account. She posted an inspirational, spiritual poster about how she’s coping. “Difficult moments, seek God,” the image reads. “Quiet moments, worship God. Painful moments, trust God. Every moment, thank God.”
“She was 100 percent completely blindsided. Friends are trying to contact her but she’s not picking up her phone or returning texts,” a source said in a statement.
Stewart’s rep acknowledged as much in a statement. “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,” the rep said. “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.”
Stewart is even getting support in her time of need from erstwhile foe Kenya Moore. “I can’t say I was shocked — we all knew they had some problems going on. [Kordell] didn’t show up at the reunion,” Moore, 42, told TMZ. “It’s unfortunate either way. You never want to see couples breaking up. [Maybe] they can iron some things out in their relationship. Maybe they can still make it work.”
The former Miss USA added that she “sent her a message. I know we’ve had our differences, but I don’t want to see anyone in pain.”
