Zero.

The above, believe it or not, is the amount ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ star Porsha Williams received in her divorce settlement with ex-husband Kordell Stewart last year…undoubtedly to her dismay.

Finalised in December, details from the divorce emerged this week and reveal that the aspiring singer will not receive alimony, any of Stewart’s ‘NFL’ retirement money, no health insurance, no cash and is now responsible for clearing off debts she allegedly owes to credit card companies.

News of her unsuccessful bid to be compensated for her work in the marriage comes a week before the release of her debut single, ‘Flatline’, due March 17th!

Kandi-JET

Season six of The Real Housewives Of Atlanta has been the show’s most action-packed yet — thanks largely to the narrative of Kandi Burruss, boyfriend-turned-fiance Todd Tucker, and of course, Mama Joyce.

Viewers of the Bravo hit have watched with shock, awe, and open jaws as the singer and businesswoman has tried to navigate through the drama that is her personal life.

Still, in pressing on and promoting the upcoming DVD release of her aptly titled musical ‘A Mother’s Love’, Burruss styles and profiles a-front of JET magazine’s April 2014 issue.

Peep the cover above and excerpts below…

On Her Hustle Factor

“When I speak about anything on camera I want to accomplish it before we finish taping. I am a ‘do what I say’ person. I want people to know I’m not a [phony].  I hate when people on reality shows mention how they want to do this and that, but you never hear of it again”

On Fiance, Todd Tucker:

“I love that Todd is affectionate and relationship-oriented. But he’s also a leader and a planner, and because of his production background he makes me a better businesswoman.”

On Mama Joyce:

“When my mother was younger it was all about getting a man to be a provider. She leans toward a man who is financially more well-off than the dude who is just a good guy. I’ve dated guys who are more successful than me, and my mom is like, no matter what he does wrong, you have to work it out.”
