Reactions to Kordell Stewart & Porsha Williams Divorce?

To be clear up front, I am not a fan of the "Real Housewives of [whatever]" TV shows.  In fact, I think they're doing a disservice to the very concept of marriage and, moreover, sending an extremely opportunistic and selfish message about what it means to get married.  It's basically a show centered around a bunch of talentless women whose sole claim to fame in life is that they married (and in most cases, divorced) a rich guy.  This message is especially damaging to the Black Community who see women and men who look like themselves portrayed by these stereotypically foolish multi-millionaire athletes who, for reasons unknown, trust that the stereotypical gold digging beauty queen that he married will not file for divorce and take 1/2 of his stuff just like every other "Real Housewife" on the show has done since the beginning of the series.  Recently, however, one of these so-called "Real Housewives" found out the hard way that marrying and then divorcing an NFL player is not exactly the guaranteed road to riches that gold diggers across America have grown accustomed to hearing about.  Per good old TMZ:

"Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Porsha Williams got hosed in her divorce settlement with Kordell Stewart.

According to legal docs -- obtained by TMZ --  Porsha gets NO alimony, NO house, NO NFL retirement money, NO cash-out, NO health insurance.  She even has to pay her own credit card balances.

It's almost like a western movie.  She gets the Mercedes she drove in on, and that's about it.  She does get to keep the engagement ring and all of her personal crap ... jewelry, clothes and other personal items.

As for Kordell ... he gets two houses, 2 plots of land, a 2013 Mercedes and a 2010 Porsche, and his full retirement benefits.  He also gets to keep a 100% interest in his companies.

Pretty crazy -- considering there was a lot of talk on "Real Housewives" that Porsha and Kordell did NOT sign a prenup.

Porsha was fighting like crazy to stay in the house, but Kordell changed the locks on her.

And it gets even worse.  She's on the chopping block for the show.

On the bright side ... a pawn shop would probably pay a pretty penny for that ring.
