You find yourself in the unfortunate position of having to search for a divorce attorney. One of your home girls, who claims to have a “wonderful relationship” with you, is an attorney. But she never offers to represent you. A situation like that would probably raise a few questions, which is why folks are wondering how come Phaedra never offered her services to Real Housewives of Atlanta co-star Porsha Stewart when she learned about her icky divorce. The self-proclaimed southern belle recently shared her reason during an interview with the Rickey Smiley Morning Show. And while we’d love to amuse you with some messy or shady answer, her explanation is actually pretty simple and to be honest, understandable.
“Well you know, I really don’t like divorces. I’ve never really liked divorces and after I worked with Bobby and Whitney through their divorce, I said I would never do another one. I really don’t care to divorce people,” the mom of two explained.
Although Phaedra made it clear that she’s not trying to divorce folks anymore, she shared during a recent interview that she does offer legal advice to Porsha Stewart.
“After it was announced, unfortunately, that she would be getting a divorce, she and I began to talk frequently. I wanted her to know I supported her and I wanted to give her good and accurate advice on the legal system. I just wanted to be there for her,” said the Secrets of a Southern Belle author.
Honestly, considering the way things worked out with Sheree, it’s probably best that Phaedra refrain from representing her friends.

Torrei Hart has been quite busy pursuing her own career in comedy and movies, showing the world that she’s more than just Kevin Hart’s ex-wife. While promoting some of her new projects, the Atlanta Exes star sat down for a candid interview with AfterBuzz TV, where she also discussed more personal subjects like sex with Kevin Hart, dating and relationships. Check out a few of her interview highlights below.
On sex with Kevin:
“If he’s putting it down, you gon’ do something crazy. You don’t wanna no one else getting that. He [Kevin] did [put it down]. That’s why I gave him two beautiful children and married his behind. You don’t marry people, and this is my opinion, you marry people because there’s a great a relationship, but if the sex is not great, then I’m sorry. That plays a big part in relationships.”
On dating post Kevin Hart:
“My expectation is loyalty. Consistency: bring something to the table. You have to have a job. I ain’t nobody’s sugar momma. Funny! I still need funny. I cannot be with a man who’s not funny. I’ve always like funny men, even before Kevin. I’m silly. I like to have fun.”
On going through a guy’s phone:
“If you leaving your phone, you have to go through it. You have to go through the other person’s phone. If they leave it, you have to. I don’t trust it. Men just… ughh”
On Kevin’s “wife in the trunk” joke:
“I told y’all I don’t trust nobody. It didn’t exactly happen like [Kevin said it did]. You know comedians have to exaggerate. But it wasn’t a trunk, it was a truck. I wasn’t in the trunk, that’s a little crazy. “

The public was exposed to Trina Braxton’s relationship woes during season one of Braxton Family Values. For whatever reason, her hubby Gabe couldn’t tame his Internet addiction. She eventually came to the painful decision that she wanted a divorce; however, two seasons later, the still very married reality star is expressing doubts. While Gabe has his issues, it looks like Trina may consider sticking around and working things out for the sake of her family.
“You know life is difficult. You know and when you are expressing personal decisions in front of America and in front of everyone, you open yourself up to a lot of opinions. And sometimes that kind of clouds your decision making,” Trina confessed during an interview with C.Nikky.
“So, I need some time to step back and let God and move myself out of the way. So, it’s been a difficult transition,” she continued.
Trina went on to say that she is greatly considering how the divorce will impact her entire family—not just herself and Gabe.
“It’s more than just myself, it’s more than just me and Gabe. It’s me and it’s Gabe and it’s our family. We have two children who we both love. So, right now we’re concentrating on being good parents. My oldest son is in college and my youngest is in 10th grade so, it’s a long haul.”

Less than a year ago we learned of Porsha and Kordell Stewart’s impending divorce. News of Kordell’s divorce filing took most fans by surprise, as the Real Housewives of Atlanta star seemed to be extremely dedicated to her marriage. However, for whatever reason, Kordell decided that he wanted out and secretly filed for divorce after only two years of marriage. Unfortunately, he failed to inform his wife of his decision. She later confessed to learning that her marriage was over on Twitter. Quite a bit of time has passed since then, and Porsha admits that she’s optimistic about moving on with her life. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the Go N*ked Hair founder revealed that her divorce from Kordell is pretty close to being finalized.
“We’re towards the end of the process. In the next month, it should be actually over, and hopefully Porsha Stewart will be turning fully into Porsha 5.0! [Laughs] Finally, I’ll have some closure and peace,” she said.
If you’ve noticed that during the past two episodes, she’s a bit feistier than she was in the previous season, Posha says that it’s because the heartbreaking experience sent her into “survival mode.”
“I was in complete shock, devastation, and I felt like I had been betrayed. I was more than ever just disappointed in Kordell and the way that he handled everything. I was in denial for a moment, but then I had to go into survival mode and ask myself, “What am I going to do?”
As for what “survival mode” is…
“Well, I did get locked out of my home, which was just horrible. Nobody should have to go through that. You made a place to live, and all of a sudden, when you don’t feel comfortable being there, you get locked out. Bravo did catch that entire process of my things packed up and put out by somebody else and the cameras caught that in real time. So in a practical sense, I literally need to figure out: where am I going to stay, live, and move forward.”
Porsha went on to address Kordell’s recent claims that their marriage suffered because she was uncomfortable around his son from a previous relationship.
“I didn’t hear the interview, and I really don’t care to comment on anything Kordell has to say. He’s saying it for a reason and wants everybody to think of me in one way. At the end of day, Kordell knew who I was to him and what I did and how I felt about his son. I don’t have to justify that at all.”
She also discussed her ongoing feud with Kenya Moore.
“Kenya and I don’t have a personal relationship. There are some women you just don’t connect with. I just don’t deal well with foolishness and lies being told.”
Speaking of Kenya Moore, Porsha also took to Instagram to blast her rival for negatively commenting on her divorce. In case you missed it, Kenya criticized Porsha for implying that Kordell is gay and taunted her for claiming that she has a “picture perfect life” in the previous season.
“I find it quite disturbing that Porsha and her family go on and on about the fact that Kordell may be gay. After all, she told the world she had a ‘picture perfect life’ and married the ‘man of her dreams.’ Cut to Porsha sitting with the attorney agreeing to take him back if he abided by a ‘list.’ Well, a thinking person with a brain would ask the question that if the main problem was that he is possibly gay, why would you want him back? I don’t think Porsha is telling the whole truth. That’s always been my opinion of her and it remains the same after listening to her recall the “facts” about their marriage,” Kenya wrote.
Porsha responded on Instagram with bizarre looking photo of Kenya, accompanied by a caption that reads:
“I’m supposed to care what ‘THIS’ is saying! Keep my mom name out ya mouth. Don’t be mad at me be mad at the Dr you went to. #itriedtobenice.”

Although It Probably Wouldn’t Hurt, A Judge Ruled That Siohvaughn Wade Doesn’t Have To Undergo Psych Testing
Back in July, Miami Heat player Dwyane Wade filed a motion requesting that his ex-wife, Siohvaughn Wade, undergo a court-mandated psychological evaluation, as a part of their ongoing child custody war.
“S.L.’s [Funches-Wade’s] statements, behavior, and her demeanor in court reflect that she is presently lost, angry and desperate. Her behavior is not in the children’s best interests…D.T. [Wade] requests that this Court immediately suspend S.L.’s timesharing…pending the results of a psychological evaluation of S.L.,” the motion reads.
Siohvaughn, however, responded by saying that her ex-husband’s request was just another malicious attempt to keep her away from their children.
“This is Mr. Wade’s ongoing pattern of behavior. I have noticed that after I speak out publicly and say what Dwyane has done to me, my children…Mr. Wade responds by running into court and asking the judge to terminate my visitation with my children in an effort to stop me from seeing my children anymore,” she said.
If you recall, Dwyane filed the motion around the time that footage surfaced on the Internet of Siohvaughn sitting on a Chicago street with a homeless sign, screaming to passersby about how she’s struggling financially while her ex-husband lives the good life. She also lamented about her ex-husband’s alleged attempts to block her from seeing their children. Though most would agree that her behavior was a bit extreme, according to the Miami Herald, yesterday in court, a judge shot down Dwyane’s request for psychological testing. According to the judge, the video did not provide sufficient evidence for a court-mandated evaluation.
In case you somehow missed it…
Me & this guy met right in the middle of our respective divorces. What was supposed to be a two week rebound for me turned into 4 months–we came to genuinely care for one another. I broke if off gently, saying we should give one another some time to heal. I go to therapy, he goes straight to the next girl (and therapy). However, we “hang out” regularly, and of this his gf is aware. I doubt she knows it’s every weekend. She definitely doesn’t know I sleep over (just sleep for now).
Months pass and for some reason, the chemistry’s still there. The old me woulda cut this off as soon as I heard about the new chick, but since I’d gotten so close to the family, I felt that would be wrong of me. Besides, his parents, brothers, and friends love me and I came to love them too-they were super supportive through my divorce since my parents couldn’t be.
More months pass and he’s still seeing the same girl, but the chemistry between us remains. I try to avoid him as much as I can. Now it’s been a year since he and I stopped dating each other. I’m still not dating by choice. he’s still dating homegirl, still calling me twice a week, and we’re hanging out almost every weekend. I’ve since moved outta state but like an idiot started sleeping with him right before I left. He still calls me twice a week without fail. I’ve been lying to get outta taking his calls for a couple weeks now.
I’ve finally accepted he has no plans to do any self-reflection any time soon, and I want out of whatever kind of relationship this is (side chick? Ex? whatever) and I thought putting a couple states between us would do it. Talking to him just causes me a lot of anxiety, but I still talk to his parents regularly. How do I gently convince this guy to leave me in peace, hopefully without alienating the fam? Or has this ship simply sailed?
- Bad with Breaking It Off
Just yesterday we told you that the wife of famed producer Timbaland filed for divorce after just five years of marriage. Unfortunately, it looks like Master P’s wife, Sonya Miiller is singing a similar tune.
According to TMZ, Sonya is petitioning for a divorce from her music mogul hubby after twenty-four years of marriage. Court documents reveal that Sonya is claiming that the marriage is broken due to “irreconcilable differences.” She is requesting full custody of their four underage children. In addition to full custody, Sonya is requesting spousal support.
What’s interesting though, is back in 2011 many thought that the couple had already divorced because Sonya took her estranged husband to court for child support. It turns out that the former couple has been separated for a very long time, but up until recently, neither made steps towards actually filing for divorce. In addition to their four minor children, they also share 24-year-old son, Romeo Miller. The pair have yet to publicly comment on the split.
They’ve been together for a very long time, hopefully they can find a way to handle the divorce amicably.
Just because a man is divorced doesn’t mean that you should rule him out completely. However, there are some things you’ll want to know before dating a divorced man to ensure this is a journey you want to go on. Here are 14 of them.
Dating after divorce is much different from your dating experiences in the past. In fact, dating after going through a divorce can be pretty tough, confusing, and exciting all at once. But, with the right advice and information in tow, dating after being divorced can be a lot easier and much more pleasurable. Here are 14 tips to remember, especially when you are getting back into the dating scene after divorce.
Kevin Hart is arguably the hardest working comedian in show business these days and he’s adding a new untitled divorced-couple comedy to his body of work for ABC.
The comedy series looks to give viewers a raw look inside the life of a couple after their divorce, as they attempt to be friends in order to co-parent their children.
Writers and producers Neil Goldman and Garrett Donovan, from “Community” and “Scrubs,” will work on the project, which is based on Kevin Hart’s original stand-up material.
But if the show does get picked up, we shouldn’t look for Hart to be its star; although he may take a recurring role. His main role will be executive producer, along with 3 Arts’ Dave Becky, Goldman, and Donovan.
