Earlier this week Porsha Stewart announced plans to legally change her name back to Porsha Williams, and now it looks like she’s actually done it! Porsha’s divorce from her husband Kordell Stewart was finalized late last year, and though there was a point in time when Porsha said she would keep her ex-husband’s last name, she recently had a change of heart.
Porsha explained her change of heart to ABC News, noting, “I was holding onto something, and I really can't explain to you what it was. But just as a woman, we have the right to change our minds.”
But with her mom in tow, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star made a major change on January 15. “Rolling with my boo #ladydi Changing it all to Porsha Williams. Independence feels so good! #newyearnewme #boom,” she wrote alongside a photo of her and her mom, as they were — we assume — en route to make the name change legal.
And it seems like the name change was the last thing Porsha had to do in order to let herself move on. Though she once toyed with getting back together with her ex, she now maintains that will never happen. Porsha appeared as a guest on Bethenny today, January 16, and when asked if she would get back with Kordell — who is now dating Towanda Braxton — she said, “No, absolutely not.”
However, Porsha says she does still have a healthy attachment to her ex post-split. “I have love for him. If something happened to him, I would definitely be sad. But love is not a word to me, it’s an action. If I can’t show you my love then I don’t love you the way I would love another man.”
Well said, girl!Are you happy that Porsha finally has her independence? Vote below!
