Kordell Stewart, the former Pittsburgh Steeler, and his wife, Porsha Williams, are divorcing, according to TMZ. Williams is a member of the cast on Real Housewives of Atlanta. The couple has been married for two years.
Porsha’s co-stars often criticized the couple’s marriage and said that Kordell, 40, was too controlling. NeNe Leakes wrote a blog on Bravotv.com offered her opinion of the marriage of Kordell and Porsha, saying the following:
“I don’t want to judge Porsha’s relationship, because I obviously don’t live with them. I can only tell you what these eyes and ears hear and see. I watch the show just like you do, so based off everything I’ve seen and heard myself, it appears that Kordell is talking to his daughter and not his wife! Porsha can’t seem to do much without getting permission from Kordell. This is not my relationship, so if Porsha likes it, I love it, and I really don’t give a sh–– what Porsha and Kordell do!”
Kordell tweeted on March 15 that he was not going to appear on the reunion show for the reality series.
“#RHOA Reunion I had other obligations booked wks prior to #RHOA submitting taping schedule & cannot participate. #Support @PorshaDStewart,” Stewart tweeted.
The couple does not have any children together, which was an issue discussed often on the reality series.
