The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams may not be a big part of the show this season, but she has been there for her cast members when they have been going through tough times. As fans saw during the season premiere, Phaedra Parks decided to remove herself and her children from the home she shared with Apollo Nida as he was getting ready for his sentencing. It was a dramatic moment.
Porsha Williams may not have been present that day, but she understands why Phaedra decided to do what she did. Williams was surprised with a divorce from her ex-husband, Kordell Stewart, after wrapping up the previous season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Porsha was shocked when she was forced out of her marriage without being able to make an effort.
According to a new Bravo report, The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams recently went through a public divorce, so she understands why Parks decided to pull the plug on the marriage. As fans saw on the Real Housewives of Atlanta premiere, it was Apollo Nida who asked for a divorce. But it was ultimately Parks who decided to file.
“I think Phaedra did what she could emotionally,” Porsha Williams has said of the situation, adding, “Sometimes you have to know when it’s time to love someone from afar.”
Porsha Williams has been close to Phaedra during this time and she has reached out. But she is firm in her belief that Parks is doing the right thing. Williams doesn’t think that she is making a mistake by filing for divorce and not waiting for Apollo to get out of jail.
“Do I think Phaedra should have gone to court? Depends on how the relationship was prior to this entire criminal case,” Porsha reveals, adding, “Anyone who has been in a one-sided relationship would understand the need for tough love.”
Perhaps Porsha Williams can be a role model for Phaedra when it comes to moving on. Since finalizing her divorce, Williams has focused on herself. She has been growing her career in new directions and she recently showed off her new breasts after undergoing breast enhancements.
But Williams won’t be a big part of this season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Andy Cohen recently revealed that Porsha was being demoted because her storyline was flat and didn’t offer anything exciting, according to the Inquisitr.
