Kordell Stewart filed for divorce from The Real Housewives Of Atlanta star Porsha Stewart on March 22. A source close to Porsha added that the reality star, who deeply loves her husband, was "completely blindsided" about the news she reportedly learned on the internet.
Porsha's RHOA co-star NeNe Leakes revealed that she has been giving her the support she needs.
"I'm being her strength right now," Leakes told E! News on Wednesday.
Leakes and Porsha attended Bravo's Upfront event together in New York City on April 3. The soon-to-divorced reality star confirmed that her co-star has been her tower of strength at this difficult time.
"She's really giving me the sisterhood that I need and encouragement," Stewart said of Leakes. "We have a similar past. If it wasn't for her calling me all day and like, making sure I'm good. She's my sister and I love her."
The newest castmember to season 5 confirmed she was shocked to learn about the filing.
"Just the entire situation, of course it caught me off guard," Porsha told E! News. "It's not easy. It's something that I'm struggling with right now."
Porsha confessed that she stopped watch RHOA season 5 because every episode has shown the marital discord she experienced with Kordell.
"I watched my divorce play out on television so I just know how hard it is," Leakes dished. "So I just want Porsha to know she has support because this is very hard."
Porsha said she wishes nothing but the best for her estranged husband.
"I wish Kordell the best, I really do," Stewart admitted. "I love him and it's just a very unfortunate situation for our family. I can do nothing at this point but wish him the best, and hopefully he's doing the same for me."
Porsha and Leakes' RHOA co-stars Kenya Moore and Cynthia Bailey also attended and commented on the sad news. Watch NeNe Leakes, Kenya Moore and Cynthia Bailey discuss Porsha's divorce here.
