Self-made and independent is how newly single Porsha Williams would like to be labeled. This is a far cry from what some reality TV fans once thought of the Real Housewives of Atlanta star. As previously reported, Porsha and Kordell Stewart’s divorce was finalized last December.

And just last month, we reported that she allegedly didn’t receive much financial assistance after the split. Reportedly, she walked away with no alimony, home or cash.

Contrary to popular belief, Porsha explains that the reason she didn’t receive anything is because she didn’t want anything from the retired NFL’er. During her appearance on Bethenny, she explains:

I didn’t ask for anything. Right now in the press it’s, ‘Porsha didn’t get anything, poor Porsha,’ and people are feeling sorry for me because I didn’t get anything and they think that we went to trial and I lost. I didn’t go to trial, I chose not to go to court. So there was no judgement. What happened was…it just tore me apart to go through this divorce, it really did. It was so traumatic and it ruled over my life. I woke up…I’m divorcing, every single day and I wanted the freedom. I wanted to be done with it so before we had court the next week, I woke up, called my attorney, we were scheduled for court, to go to court and me plead my side and he plead his side.

She adds:

So I told my attorney, ‘Listen, I am done with this. Get the divorce decree, I am coming to sign it.’ I said the only thing I want him to do is pay for my hospital bills because I didn’t have insurance. He didn’t have insurance on me or his son.

Her only request, was for health insurance, which she had accumulated debt on:

Listen, I had insurance on myself after the divorce, but the debt we had was for insurance. Remember, I wasn’t working. The debt was there still from insurance bills. That’s what I wanted him to pay. That’s it, that’s all I asked him to do and I got my car. Yeah, and he did that. I am good. I have health insurance now. I’m completely independent.

    Good for her.. if she’s telling the truth. Lol

    exactly Anonymous, if true…. applause. I had a strong suspicion there was more to this story. It really didn’t sit well that she got nothing based on the ruling. I was certain that she would have walked away with much more, and I believe she would have been deserving. So kudo’s if she decided to do a Tina Turner, only she isn’t using his name either! Hopefully she will succeed in her endeavors. If not, there will always be plan B….. marry another athlete!

    If the what she wanted then more power to her.I think she should have asked for a little of something.She was his wife,get what you might have coming to you.

    It was previously noted that she wasn’t in titled to anything, not because she chose not to get anything out of it. If anything, Kordell made sure he and his assets were well protected going in to this marriage and coming out. He dotted his i’s and crossed his t’s before “I do” was even said. Smart move on him. But nice try or trying to seem like it was you who wanted nothing out of your divorce Porsha. Kudos to you for finally having health insurance on yourself at the age of 30+.
