Another Housewife is headed for divorce.

Former NFL player Kordell Stewart has filed for divorce from his wife of nearly two years, Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Porsha Williams (who goes by the name of Porsha Stewart on the TV show), TMZ reports.

On the Bravo series, the couple’s relationship was often criticized by Porsha’s costars, who found Kordell, 40, to be too controlling of his wife, 31.

In a blog written by NeNe Leakes on, the reality-star-turned-New-Normal-actress shared her opinion of the couple’s relationship.

“I don’t want to judge Porsha’s relationship, because I obviously don’t live with them. I can only tell you what these eyes and ears hear and see. I watch the show just like you do, so based off everything I’ve seen and heard myself, it appears that Kordell is talking to his daughter and not his wife! Porsha can’t seem to do much without getting permission from Kordell. This is not my relationship, so if Porsha likes it, I love it, and I really don’t give a sh–– what Porsha and Kordell do!”

On March 15, Kordell revealed on Twitter that he would not be appearing on the series’ reunion show to rehash the season’s events.

“#RHOA Reunion I had other obligations booked wks prior to #RHOA submitting taping schedule & cannot participate. #Support @PorshaDStewart,” he wrote.
