Porsha Stewart, Kordell Stewart: 'Real Housewives Of Atlanta' Star Makes First Public Appearance Since Split

On Wednesday, "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Porsha Stewart made her first official post-split appearance since her estranged husband -- former NFL quarterback Kordell Stewart -- filed for divorce two weeks ago.

Porsha attended the Bravo Upfronts party in New York City, where she told reporters that she and her family were currently "going through a very difficult time." But how is she holding up otherwise?

"When you have strong arms and strong family around you, they cover you -– that's what they're there for," she said, according to Us Weekly. "So that's who I'm leaning on. And it's really a blessing to see people, supporters and fans are standing up and just really showing me the love."

Kordell filed for divorce in Atlanta's Fulton County Court on March 22, after less than two years of marriage. Porsha -- who was reportedly "completely blindsided" by the filing -- has since requested alimony and asked that she be able to stay in their matrimonial home. The former pair has no children together, but Kordell has one son from a previous relationship.
