"The Real Housewives of Atlanta" returned and things were ugly already. Porsha Stewart was in the middle of a nasty divorce from former NFL star Kordell Stewart. She found out at the end of last season that he'd filed for divorce from fans on Twitter -- she'd seen no signs their marriage was headed in that direction.

"There were definitely times in the marriage that Kordell didn’t necessarily want me, physically, and that made me wonder, what does he want?" she admitted. "When we first got together, I asked him about rumors of him being gay, because family members were bringing it up to me and friends were asking me about it, and he explained it away ... I didn’t question whether he was gay or not because someone else said it. Any reasons that I questioned it were things I had experienced or seen.”

That bombshell made Entertainmenet Weekly's list of highlights from the episode. CarterMatt agreed, saying that's the price you pay for fame. "What this show really exposes is that there are downsides to not only being in the public eye, but subjecting much of your personal life and loved ones to it, as well."

Still, HitFix's Liane Bonin Starr noted how careful Porsha was with what she said. "Porsha is very careful not to go into detail, but I'm guessing it's only a matter of time (unless he works nondisclosure terms into their divorce settlement)," she wrote. "Man, did this show get real all of a sudden or what?”
