Drew Sidora And Her Husband Ralph Pittman Of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” Both Filed For Divorce Within An Hour Of Each Other, And It Got Messier From There
Anyone who watched Drew Sidora and her husband, Ralph Pittman, coexist on The Real Housewives of Atlanta since they signed on in 2020 could see that their marriage was going just about as well as Drew’s hesitant Waterfalls choreography when she portrayed T-Boz in the 2013 VH1 masterpiece, CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story. Now, Drew’s getting a proper Housewives initiation by getting a divorce. Apparently, things between her and Ralph were so bad that both of them ran to the courthouse on February 27, within one hour of each other, to pull the plug on their nine-year marriage, and Drew says Ralph was a physically and mentally abusive cheater who stole her money.
Two of the couple’s prevailing RHOA storylines were Ralph’s tendency to text back and forth with his “assistant” about her massaging his body and Ralph traveling out of state for days at a time without telling Drew where or why, so this comes as no surprise. TMZ says Drew and Ralph filed for divorce on February 27, with Drew sprinting into a Georgia courthouse just 61 minutes before Ralph. Both said their marriage was “irretrievably broken.”
TMZ obtained her divorce petition, and the Gwinnett Co. court stamped it as received on Feb. 27 at 1:10 PM. Meanwhile, Ralph’s docs were stamped at 2:11 PM that same day. Interestingly, she lists their separation date as Feb. 23 … while he says it was Feb. 19.
At that time, Drew also added that she “reserved the right to add additional ground for divorce” if settlements started getting contentious, and they just might, since Drew then amended the filing to detail Ralph’s transgressions. Drew says Ralph knocked her to the ground while grabbing her cell phone, withdrew large amounts of money from her account, and had several hoes in different area codes. She also said she felt so unsafe that she considered fleeing Atlanta with her children. via TMZ:
In an amended divorce complaint, obtained by TMZ, Drew says she simply cannot take Ralph’s “continued blatant disrespect and mental abuse any longer.”
She goes on to accuse Ralph of being a serial cheater during their marriage — even claiming some of the women he’s allegedly had affairs with have rubbed it in her face — sending her screenshots of their “sexts” with Ralph.
That’s not all … Drew also says Ralph has recently gotten physical with her, claiming last month he grabbed her phone out of her hand, causing her to fall to the floor. She says Ralph yelled at her, saying he pays the cell phone bill so the phone belongs to him.
She also says at one point, he withdrew a “large sum of money” from her account.
She says when Ralph got physically aggressive, she even considered leaving Atlanta and flying with her 3 minor children to Chicago where they’d feel safe.
Drew requested primary physical and joint legal custody of their two children together (she also has one other child from a previous relationship), which she should have no trouble getting since all the judge would need to do is watch 45 seconds of Ralph on RHOA seemingly poised to catch the next flight out at any moment. Here’s the two of them in simpler times, when they couldn’t even stand each other long enough to enjoy gourmet crab rangoons during a private dining experience:
