“Everybody’s trying to hustle and get their ‘NeNe’ on. Everybody wants to be NeNe.”
That’s what Kordell Stewart had to say in his revealing V-103 interview about the cause of his divorce with Porsha Williams. He was essentially saying that in attempt to be seen and get the shine, endorsements, and in the end, the money that NeNe Leakes has, his soon-to-be ex-wife changed quite a bit in order to be a reality star. And according to Real Housewives star Kandi Burruss, others seem to agree, including her fiancé Todd Tucker.
While writing on the Bravo blog yesterday, Burruss posed a very interesting question to RHOA fans: “Do you feel like we influenced Porsha in a negative way?” According to Tucker, who calls the ladies of the show the “Get Fresh Crew,” he says that when wholesome Porsha Stewart started getting around the women, she started behaving in a manner that was discouraging to her husband, and ultimately led to that couple’s divorce:
Todd feels like it’s our fault that Porsha and Kordell are getting divorced. He says that when she got around “The Get Fresh Crew,” as he called us, Porsha started acting in a way that Kordell was not happy with and that is the reason why he filed for divorce. What do y’all think? Do you feel like we influenced Porsha in a negative way? I hope not. I hate to see Porsha and Kordell going through this, and I hate that it seems to be getting ugly.
Well I can’t worry about someone else’s relationship right now. I have to focus on my own. Unfortunately I’m once again in a relationship that my mom doesn’t approve of, which adds so much stress to my life right now. I’m praying that things will change…
It’s definitely an interesting question. I can believe that being around women who are so used to the spotlight through movies, music and TV can make someone want to accomplish some of the same things (and ultimately go to the same events and shindigs when their husband is expecting them to be in the house barefoot and pregnant), but in the end, there were more reasons than just trying to be in the “Get Fresh Crew” for Kordell to divorce Porsha. And considering he wasn’t willing to even go to counseling, let’s just say homeboy was ready to go a long time ago. So if you ask me, Todd’s pointing the finger at the wrong folks…
But what do you think?
