Things are heating up in the reality TV world, as we sadly watch the divorce drama surrounding Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Porsha and Kordell Stewart. We’ve learned that Porsha has snagged Randall Kessler, the same attorney that helped NeNe Leakes with her divorce.
In an interview with CocoaFab, Randall shared a limited amount of details, one of which he alludes to the fact that Porsha may have the upper hand, because she was actually trying to make their marriage work. The fact that it was taped and aired on TV speaks to her efforts. He explained:
“Typically there is a lot that happens but I can tell you that there will be a status conference where the parties get together and talk and the court helps direct them to work towards a resolution. I know Mr. Stewart’s attorney very well and I have worked with him in the past and we will work with him in this case to the extent that his client allows,” he added, noting that he has not filed with the court his official entry as her attorney as of this morning. He will officially be the attorney of record later today.”
Given the fact that the last few months have played out in front of the cameras for the world to see, Mr. Kessler feels that his client may have the upper hand. Porsha was seen on the show seeking marital counseling, and trying to make her marriage work in a number of episodes. Without divulging his client’s strategy. The short answer is that evidence is evidence. If you’re on a security camera and we get it, or if you’re on reality television and that’s taped, that’s evidence as well.”
So the big point of contention is whether or not Porsha signed a preputial agreement.
On the show, you’ll recall that Porsha tells her Reality TV co-star, Kandi Burruss, that she did not and does not really believe in them. But conflicting reports suggest that she did sign one. Regardless, there are reports that Kordell is worth $16 million. If you’re a sports fan, you know that he made most of his money as a NFL player for the Pittsburgh Steelers, Chicago Bears and the Baltimore Ravens. Celebrity Net Worth reports that his biggest career contract was worth $27 million over five years. He retired in 2005 and has made some TV appearances like ‘Deal or No Deal’ and his current gig is a sports analyst, where he covers the post games for ESPN. Stay tuned as we cringe and watch.
