15 Real Housewives Couples Who Divorced After Appearing On The Show
The women who join Bravo’s Real Housewives franchise are expected to open up their lives to the show, which means if they are married or have a family, their significant other will also appear on the show. Unfortunately, the reality series has become widely known for having a high divorce rate. Women who come on the show married, often leave divorced or get divorced shortly after. It’s called the reality TV curse! We’ve compiled a list of 15 popular Real Housewives who were married when they joined the series, but got divorced after appearing on the show!
15. Adrienne Maloof
This Beverly Hills Housewife joined the RHOBH in season 1 and was a main cast member until season 3. During her time on the show viewers got to see a lot of her relationship with her now ex-husband, Paul Nassif. The two clearly had their fair share of issues prior to joining the show because they had been bickering with each other on camera ever since they filmed their first episode together. Many thought it was simply friendly banter, but Adrienne even later admitted she didn’t realize how bad it was until she watched the show. Nassif filed for separation in July 2012, then they divorced in August 2012. The two engaged in a nasty custody battle, spewing terrible accusations about one another until the divorce was finalized in November 2012.
14. Porsha Williams
Porsha Williams’ marriage to former Pittsburgh Steelers star, Kordell Stewart, was short lived. When she joined The Real Housewives of Atlanta in season 5, they were newlyweds, but when she returned for season 6 in 2013, she was in the process of a divorce. Their marriage only lasted two years as the two got married in May 2011, but in March 2013, Stewart went and filed for divorce. Porsha Williams has since claimed that she was completely blindsided by the filing and that she found out about their separation through Twitter. Their divorce was finalized in December 2013 and she received none of his property or earnings in their settlement.
