Atlanta, GA- Last month, Porsha Stewart, who joined the cast of “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” this past season, announced she and her husband of two years, former NFL quarterback Kordell Stewart were getting a divorce. But now rumors are swirling that she and Kordell faked the divorce to create drama for producers of the “Real Housewives.”
On April 4, Porsha announced she and Kordell would be getting a divorce, telling a number of media outlets that she was shocked and “blindsided” by the divorce filing.
In his initial divorce filing Kordell stated ‘irreconcilable differences’ as his reason for seeking divorce, but that may have all just been a rouse.
Porsha also said she found about the divorce filing after Kordell made the announcement over social media even though he was just in the next room of their Atlanta mansion.
Later on that month Porsha appeared on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Next,” where she told host Andy Cohen how upset she was he filed for divorce and admitted they were still living with each other.
“ I asked my husband … had he filed, and just a long story short, I felt very disappointed and let down,” Porsha said, “When I got married, I meant it for life. … I was heartbroken.”
However, just a few weeks after the news of their breakup surfaced, Kordell began having a change of heart. On his Instagram account Kordell posted a photo the couple during a happier time with the caption, “What y’all think???? Here to work it out? Y’all have been supportive so I’m asking, may not work, but I’m going to try.”
Now sources area saying that the couple dreamed the divorce drama for the attention since producers from the “RHOA” planned on dropping Porsha and Kordell from the show.
According to Media Takeout.com, “Porsha found out that she was NOT going to come back on the show – and both she and her husband [Kordell] desperately wanted to stay on the Housewives,” an insider close to the couple said, “So they figured if they created a FAKE DIVORCE, like NeNe did – it would be enough drama for them to be asked back.”
Media Takeout confirmed with one of the show’s producers that Porsha and Kordell were going to be dropped from the show, but after the divorce rumors surfaced the producers decided to keep the couple in the “RHOA.”
If the divorcing filing was fake, would it make any difference? Although, the Real Housewives is supposed to be a reality show, viewers have to understand that some of the scenes and drama are a bit contrived, dreamed up to make the show more entertaining.
In the midst of reality star Kim Kardashian’s divorce, her producers testified that some scenes in “Keeping up With the Karsashians,” also on Bravo, were staged and even reshot for greater impact. Most of the fake scenes were with her now ex-husband Kris Humphries, which he believed were redone to make him look bad.
