Porsha Stewart's life may be even more crazy than the tabloids are letting on. 
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star has finally broken her silence on her divorce from Kordell Stewart on Watch What Happens Live, telling host Andy Cohen she was "totally blindsided" by the filing. 
"When I found out about the divorce, it was absolutely a surprise. I was laying in the bed and I tweeted, 'today is the first day of the rest of your life,'" she explains. "I put the phone down and took a little nap and I looked back at my phone and my sister was calling me over and over. She said, 'have you heard?' and I'm like 'heard what?'"  
The reality star goes on to explain she went back on Twitter and saw people tweeting that her husband had filed for divorce, and admits she thought it was all a crazy joke. She didn't have to go far to confront Kordell, however, as the NFL player was hanging out in the other room.
When her fellow WWHL guest Vivica A. Fox asked her if she ever found out the reason for the sudden filing, Porsha dodged the question, revealing instead that she had to confirm with her attorney that it was really happening. 
"Long story short, I was very disappointed and let down. When I got married, I meant it for life. I always said I'd never get a divorce unless he cheated on me or something like that," says Stewart, who was married to the former quarterback for two years. "I was heartbroken.  Like I am still right now. I'm a brave woman and I know I'm living this out in front of the world because of the way it was done."
But the bombshells don't stop there. Stewart also admits she and her ex are still living under the same roof. "It's a difficult, difficult situation right now. It's something I did not want at all," adding that though the former couple are roommates, she stopped performing her wifely duties after the divorce papers were filed. "I didn't say we speak and I didn't say I'm cookin'. Ain't no eggs and bacon and ham hocks no mo'."  

Porsha also revealed that there was no pre-nuptial agreement between the couple, which should make for an explosive divorce. Looks like Cohen, the mastermind behind the Real Housewives franchise, has his drama for next season!
