Porsha Stewart is in the midst of a painful split from her husband Kordell Stewart—the pair are not yet legally divorced—and yet the Real Housewives of Atlanta star is doing her best to remain optimistic about a new romance.
"I'm a hopeless romantic," Porsha tells this week's issue of OK! Magazine (on-sale now). But has she given up on love? "Absolutely not!"
That doesn't mean she's not taking time to reflect on her marriage. "I always wanted to be a wife," she says. "I wanted to trust my husband and I wanted to love him completely, and that meant me also depending on him to take care of me and my heart. But I know, eventually, I will meet that perfect somebody I can adore and spoil and he'll do the same back for me."
Her "perfect somebody" may have already arrived. Appearing on the Steve Harvey Show this week, Porsha agreed to meet three eligible bachelors—and go with one of them, a fellow named Kinyumba, on a date.
Their night out seemed to go well. While eating at a steak house, Porsha opened up about her suitor: "He's super sweet, I really like him, it's going pretty good so far, he seems really genuine and I can really appreciate that. So far so good." Watch below.
What do you think about Porsha's date? Are they a good match? Tell us in the comments.
Porsha...so glad you are moving on with your life....what a loser that husband soon to be ex is...you remind me of my daughter...kind, good natured and innocent and need someone more suited to your personality...take your time...Kordell is nothing and will continue to be nothing...what a douche bag...
Porsha girl wipe those tears and those fears, do you now. what ever you want you can have if you do the work of trying to wrap your head around the lessons of this experience. recognize abuse in a controlling man and you will never have to kiss another one of those frogs again. seek your own financial independence and i promise you, that will make you feel great and will make the right man want to support you in your dream of being a housewife, lots and lots and lots and lots of love to you girl. i've been there,
I am quite disappointed in Porsha. When I watched her on last season, I COMPLETELY was in her corner. She seemed God-fearing, wanted to be a very good wife and mother. The only thing is;she did not continue to do was put God and Family First. There were many things she could have done in her spare time with the son's school, with her family's foundation and family time, but she didn't. Either that or Bravo chose to show and distort the good stuff. Her biggest mistake was in WANTING to get on that show and DOUBTING HER DECISION to keep her promise to her husband as to the kind of marriage they wanted. All I saw of Kordell was that he wanted to protect and provide for her and that he was ALWAYS saying whatever God wants, "Let's consider God in our decision." SO I NOW HAVE NO SYMPATHY FOR PORSHA. I'm sure she regrets her decision to jeopardize her marriage and come out looking like a total fool. I wish KORDELL the best. The so-called NEW guy in her life needs to be CAREFUL with her for a lot of reasons.
I've never started an account with anybody's website until right now. I just have to speak out on Porsha. The comments she made with her therapist hit home with me like I'd been hit in the head with a baseball bat. I too have been in a relationship where on the exterior I was the envy of all my friends for having such a good, devoted man. All the while they had no idea the personal hell I was going through at home. If I could talk to Porsha one on one I would tell her she did NOTHING wrong except falling in love with a man who never deserved her. I would tell her how beautiful her spirit is and PLEASE don't let this one wrong man change the woman she is and was before she ever met him. I know she can see in hindsight control is NOT love but nothing more than an insecure man. You're gonna make it Porsha and you WILL find a man worthy of you.
I find it odd, that when Porsha was asked why she married Kordell, she didn't say it was because she loved him. She said first that she wanted security, a home, etc….. All I'm saying is, that she clearly had a different agreement with Kordell prior to getting on the RealHousevies franchise….. Implying that Kordell is gay was pretty pathetic. It's pretty apparent he wanted a wife and a mother who put her family first before and above all other things. He wanted her career to be that of taking care of her family……. It looks like when Porsha hung out with the other 'career' , 'non' housewives of Atlanta, she wanted everything these women had as well. And if you look at all the other married women, they definitely do not fit the understanding of what Kordel and Porsha originally agreed upon before getting married. I'm not saying that Porsha is wrong and Kordell is just, but Porsha decided to try and change things to suit only her wants after getting married and going back on what they both said they wanted and 'expected' in the beginning. Quit crying wolf. Be a big girl, enough with the stage tears and own it. Stop speaking of someone's sexuality to deflect and just move on…… I think it's a blessing in disguise that there weren't biological children brought into a marriage to where there was only 1 adult present in the marriage… It's a pretty childish mentality to think that just because a man marries you that you have the power to change him or think that he's just going to fold after you take his name. No sympathy here. You knew what you were getting in to Porsha. Stop hijacking the show with a topic that is as annoying as squeaking bed springs and knock off hand bags.
OMG !! Porsha, You are movin on up Gurl .. this guy is fine, nice, classy and respectfull. What a change from ugly, controlling Kordell. I have no idea what you saw in him.. good riddance Kordell. Hello Kinny !!!!
Well Porsha, take your time in therapy to see what it is you want before dating again.
Get to know you all over again. You have plenty of time to get a new man, so do not rush.
You are just begining to see what went wrong in your marriage. I too wish things could have worked out with Kordell but being with a controlling guy is not what a woman needs. Women need partners who show concern for each others issues too.
Children are deal breakers, Either you want them or you don't. You do have to be honest about what is acceptable, and if in a new relationship ask the hard questions. Don't water down the issues. Money is another ideal breaker, and you need to date the person and he needs to date you to understand how he uses his money and vise versa. Does he save, is he frugal. What are the hot buttons? I am a true believer that women need to make their own money.
Taking your time will help you discover if the guy is right and if the time is right to find another partner. Good Luck!
Your mother is right Kordell was just the Wrong Dam One, but the right one is yet to be discovered.
God will send him to you. Best of luck.
@TopCat3473 Great post!! Good luck!!
@MizzouTraveler completely disagree...in fact, keep it to yourself...Kordell is obviously a shady, mean, underhanded bully...
I agree. I don't think Kordell was right but I don't know why every show she now wants to question his sexuality when he divorced her and she would have stayed with him, it just doesn't make any sense.
