Williams' divorce counterclaim, filed on March 29, squashes Stewart's claim that she should not receive alimony, stating that she sacrificed her career for the sake of his son and their marriage.

According to the divorce papers, Williams, "at [Stewart's] request, did not work for two years and raised his minor child and in fact sold her own businesses to care for his minor child."

"As a result, [Williams'] earning capacity was set back significantly and she is seeking support on a temporary and final basis."

In addition to spousal support, the filing requests that Williams, "should have exclusive use and possession of the marital residence on a temporary and permanent basis."

Williams also challenged Stewart's former assertion that there were no marital assets to be divided.

"All marital property of the parties should be equitably divided by the court, if the parties cannot resolve this issue themselves," read Williams' filing.

The Bravo reality star, who said last week that she was "disappointed" by her husband's divorce filing, also is insisting that he pay all, "expenses of litigation, including attorney's fees, expenses and costs."

Williams is being represented by Randy Kessler, the same attorney that represented Houswives castmate and close friend, Nene Leakes during her divorce from Greg Leakes.

Willams' divorce papers shed insight on the current state of her relationship with Stewart, stating that, "The parties are currently living in a bona fide state of separation."

Kenya Moore, Williams' nemesis on the Housewives of Atlanta, hinted that a reconciliation could be possible for the couple. "It's unfortunate either way. You never want to see couples breaking up. Maybe they can iron some things out in the relationship," Moore said following the divorce announcement.

Yet, Williams' filings reveal that a reunion is highly unlikely, hinting that there were extenuating circumstances that caused the split.

The papers state: "[Williams] is entitled to a divorce from [Stewart] on the grounds that the marriage is irretrievably broken... And there are no prospects for reconciliation. Upon information and belief, other grounds exist for the granting of this divorce but given that this is a public document [Williams] prefers to keep those reasons out of the pleadings unless or until necessary."

Perhaps Williams is referring to the alleged affair between Stewart and his former fiancé, who is also mother to his child, Tania Richardson.

The two were photographed having dinner together the same day Stewart filed for divorce. Following his surprise split from Williams, Stewart and Richardson reportedly attended church together just two days later.
