Since the shocking news of Kordell Stewart filing for divorce hit the web, Porsha’s Real Housewives of Atlanta co-stars have been coming out, one by one, offering sympathy and well wishes to their younger cast mate. The latest to come forward is Kandi Burruss, who expressed that she was saddened by the news.

“I was very sad. I reached  out to her. I didn’t talk to her, but we spoke on text. I was really just hurting for her. I hate the whole thing that when people get on reality TV sometimes that can breakdown a relationship. I hate that for her. She really, really, really wanted her  marriage to work,” she said in an interview with Cocoa Fab.

Kandi went on to reveal that viewers will get a chance to witness an emotional  Porsha discuss just how hard she was fighting  to make her marriage work, when the reunion show airs.

“You’ll see that on the reunion. That’s going to come up. She really talks emotionally about how she’s really working to work for her marriage. So that was sad for me to hear. I was shocked that he filed in that way. I noticed little things that he posted on Instagram — because we all follow each other — and I was like ‘what does that mean?!’ It was certain things that he had posted that made me think ‘I don’t know about that! Do we say that when we’re happy?!?’” she continued.

The “Prayed Up” singer seems to be echoing her co-star Kenya Moore in her thinking that all hope is not lost, revealing that she believes Porsha and Kordell may be able to work things out.

“Overall, I hope that they can work this out. I don’t understand what is that bad that they can’t work it out. I’m not in their day-to-day life. But I don’t know.”

She also had some words of encouragement for Porsha.

“First of all, I always want to say I can’t give anyone advice about their marriage. But as far as going through something, it can’t rain forever. The sun IS going to shine again. Sometimes we feel like eveything is just so bad. And stuff keeps happening. But even when you’re going through a rainy season, you’ll still going to get  a day of sunlight. For her, she’s beautiful, she’s young she doesn’t have any children. She was upset to go through those things, but … maybe this has put her in a spotlight to be in a better place and put the shine on her. Whereas she was being the happy help mate to someone else, maybe it’s is her time to shine. God makes things happen. You never know.”


It’s nice to see the other ladies come forward to offer support.

What are your thoughts on Kandi’s reaction?

    This is why Kandi is my favorite of all the Housewives… she is truly the type of friend that any woman needs… well i need a friend like her…

  • klynn

    Even when things go bad, you still love that person. It takes time to heal from a broken heart. She loves him, maybe she can learn to love herself more now that he wants it to end. I have always felt that kandy would be a good shoulder to lean on. This should also make all of the ladies take note, situations like this can happen to anyone; however in every dissapointment there is a blessing.

  • Big Mama

    All of this ^^^^^ right here! God’s putting Porsha in position.

  • RealitySuxx

    Kandi is a class act – a sweetheart.

  • That last paragraph was especially beautiful. I know people love gossip or “Tea” as they call it in the A, but hopefully nobody takes joy in Porsha’s pain.

  • Ebby

    I still feel she’s better off without him. He’s got to many issues and that rumor about him just won’t go away.

    • Taj

      ITA. What I don’t understand is how can you decide to go on a reality show if you have had such rumors swirling about you in the past? The fact that he can refrain from attending the reunion, but yet can file his divorce papers to be advertised through the internet instead of making this known in person makes him a coward and hypocrite. There’s more to this story than meets the eye. However, she should move on and see this as a blessing. No matter how you spin it, it is actually he that ends up looking worse than she in this situation.
