Porsha Stewart, "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" star whose husband publicly filed for divorce recently, is revealing her thoughts about the show causing a rift in her marriage and Kenya Moore, her nemesis on the show, choosing to support her.
Stewart, 31, appeared on Bravo TV's late night talk show "Watch What Happens Live" Sunday where she spoke about learning of her estranged husband's divorce filings on Twitter after the filming of her reality show came to a close. The granddaughter of civil-rights leader Hosea Williams spoke candidly about the end of her marriage and even answered one viewer's question about the demise of her marriage stemming from her stint on reality TV.
While Stewart admitted that she heard about reality television ruining relationships in the past, she was not quick to blame her own marriage's issues on her first season taking part in "The Real Housewives of Atlanta."
"I do feel like people say reality TV can cause people to have a divorce. I feel like you already had an issue, whoever decided to file," Stewart said on "Watch What Happens Live" Sunday. "Whatever issue [Kordell] had it had nothing to do with the show, I feel. It was already there."
Stewart has been receiving emotional support from a number of her cast members on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" like Phaedra Parks, Cynthia Bailey, Nene Leakes and Kandi Burruss. While actress and producer Kenya Moore has been in a number of verbal confrontations with Stewart on the show, the latter admitted to being grateful that she has also been a supporter during the difficult time.
"Kenya reached out after she heard about the divorce filing and she text me and she wished me well and said I was in her prayers," Stewart revealed on "Watch What Happens Live" Sunday. "And I was thankful for that."
After Stewart's divorce made headlines last month, Moore took to her Twitter account to let the world know her thoughts on the matter.
"Even though @porshadstewart and I have had our differences, I would never want to see anyone in pain," Moore tweeted. "I wish her well."
