I was totally blindsided. At the reunion (before the papers were filed), I did feel some kind of way because I did want my husband there with me. But I was standing strong representing for my family. I was a wife, that was my title and that’s what I took on and had ownership of. But when I found out about the divorce it was absolutely a surprise. I was laying in the bed and woke up and I tweeted “Today is the first day of the rest of your life.” And I put the phone down and took another nap like I always do sometimes (Sigh). And then I looked back at my phone and my sister was calling me over and over. She said “Have you heard?” I said ‘heard what’ and let me go to Twitter.
The first thing I see is ‘Kordell divorcing Porsha. I’m like, ‘this is a crazy joke’. But yes, I found out from Twitter. I called my sister back and said I’m going to ask him about it–I went in there and asked him. He was there (in the house)
I asked him had he filed. And I felt very disappointed and let down.
Porsha explained she feels betrayed:
“When I got married, I meant it for life. I always said I would never get a divorce unless he cheated on me. I had to find out from my attorney if it was true, he had to look it up online. And yes, they’re still living in the same house together. But she said that doesn’t mean they speak and it doens’t mean she’s still cooking eggs and hamhocks. She says she spends time away with friends and family in Atlanta and “It’s a difficult situation right now. It’s something I did not want. I had asked previously can we work this out, can we go to counseling.”
