porsha stewart*Porsha Stewart put on a happy face when she arrived at the Bravo Upfronts party in New York, her first post-divorce announcement appearance.

While she smiled for the camera, she did tell reporters that she and her family are “going through a very difficult time,” but somehow she’s making it.

“When you have strong arms and strong family around you, they cover you -– that’s what they’re there for,” she said, according to Us Weekly. “So that’s who I’m leaning on. And it’s really a blessing to see people, supporters and fans are standing up and just really showing me the love.”

Porsha’s husband Kordell filed for divorce on March 22, shy of two years of marriage. She said she was totally “blindsided” by the filing.
