Porsha Stewart offered love advice in a recent interview that was inspired by her March split from former NFL star Kordell Stewart.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star gave several suggestions as to what women should look for when seeking a mate in the October issue of Sister 2 Sister magazine. She said women should love for a man "who they feel they can trust and who has their best interest at heart."
Porsha also advised women to make sure their future goals line up with their partner's.
"The way that you'll know if a man is equally yoked to you is if your purpose in life is aligned with his. A lot of people get married and don't know what their purpose is," she said. "Because a lot of people don't know how to be still, stop their thoughts, stop their wants, and try to listen to hear what God wants them to do, and once He tells you what He wants for your life, you have to trust that and move on it."
Porsha may have been referring to how her marriage to Kordell played out during season 5 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. The former couple were constantly at odds over her decision to hold off having children in order to pursue a career. When her TRHOA co-stars expressed concern for her, saying Kordell was overbearing and demanding, Porsha constantly defended him.
It was a major shock to her when Kordell filed for divorce, she later revealed. He did not tell her in advance that he intended to file and Porsha found out about it via Twitter. Porsha shared the tramautic experience with talk show host Andy Cohen during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live in April.
Kordell filed a petition for divorce from Porsha on March 22 in Fulton County, Ga. The couple married less than two years prior on May 21, 2011. Porsha later won monthly spousal support in the first round of their divorce case.
A Superior Court judge ruled in favor of Porsha in court on June 18, according to documents obtained by HipHopEnquirer. Porsha received $5,000 a month in child support and Kordell was ordered to return all of her personal property from his home or pay for her items to be placed in a storage unit.
