BEFORE SHE WAS THE “BLACK TROPHY WIFE,” SHE WAS A PREACHER…
Prior to living a fabulous life and becoming a famous reality TV celebrity, Porsha Stewart preached the word of God. That’s right. The same woman who reveres herself as the “black trophy wife,” was preaching at the pulpit prior to marrying her wealthy soon-to-be-ex-husband Kordell Stewart. In a recent interview, Stewart described her life as a black trophy wife, saying:
“Being a trophy wife per se is not just about your outer looks. It’s about the man who has put you on the pedestal and him admiring you and thinking well enough of you to put you up there. And I think it’s important for our little girls to know that they can be a princesses and they can have it all…So I feel proud to represent — and I use the word lightly — the black trophy wife.”
Unfortunately, being a black trophy wife does not protect you from a failing relationship, as it was announced that Porsha and Kordell are calling it quits. Porsha released a statement through her representative saying she is
“disappointed about her husband’s recent filing for divorce.” According to TMZ, the rep added that Porsha had delayed filing for divorce papers because she was committed to the marriage and Kordell had promised to work with her to strengthen it. Instead, the rep claims “[Kordell] misled her and she found out about the filing in the media.” The rep concluded: ”Mrs. Stewart hopes to resolve these personal issues privately with the support of her family, friends and strong faith.” It’s interesting that she has never discussed her evangelical days.
According to a report uncovered Sunday, March 31, The Atlanta Housewives star and her husband have enlisted the help of an Atlanta area pastor to help them sort out their issues.
"Porsha and Kordell have been undergoing extensive counseling from their pastor, both separately and together.
While it’s unclear who the pastor is and if the report of “extensive counseling” is event accurate, Porsha Stewart did note the fact that she thought they were going to work on their troubled marriage before deciding on a divorce.
"Mrs. Stewart is disappointed about her husband’s recent filing for divorce. Mrs. Stewart had held off on filing for a divorce herself and remained committed to the marriage because Mr. Stewart promised to work on the marriage with her. Instead, he misled her and she found out about the filing in the media," Stewart’s rep shared in a statement. "Mrs. Stewart hopes to resolve these personal issues privately with the support of her family, friends and strong faith."
