Porsha, the granddaughter of civil-rights leader Hosea Williams, was reportedly shocked by the news

"Mrs. Stewart is disappointed about her husband's recent filing for divorce. Mrs Stewart held off on filing for divorce herself and remained committed to the marriage because Mr. Stewart promised to work on the marriage with her," the estranged Mrs.Stewart's representative reportedly told OMG! Yahoo. "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."

Still, the reality television star has been receiving support from her fellow cast members of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta."

Cast member Nene Leakes tweeted her support for the estranged Mrs. Stewart.

"I am (a) good judge of character," Leakes tweeted Tuesday. "I will stand by and support my little sister @PorshaDStewart."

Kenya Moore, model and Stewart's fellow cast member, also tweeted her support for the estranged Mrs. Stewart.

"Even though @porshadstewart and I have had our differences, I would never want to see anyone in pain," Moore tweeted. "I wish her well."
