Commentary — 02 December 2011

Anybody who knows ANYTHING about a divorce knows that it takes weeks to appropriately draw up divorce papers, saying nothing of the millions of dollars of assets and child custody arrangements that must also be addressed.

Meaning, a decision (and action) to file for divorce in a situation such as this one does not happen in a fit of rage or emotional whimsicality.

Somebody must have gotten to Vanessa Long…

Upon prayerful reflection, I have reconsidered and plan to withdraw my petition for divorce from my husband, Bishop Eddie L. Long.

I love my husband. I believe in him and admire his strength and courage.”


Divorce petition on THURSDAY, and belief, love and admiration on FRIDAY?!

Mo’Kelly is calling BS!  This is some BS…all day everyday!

  • Aw c’mon, Mo’Kelly…

    She is just standing by her man. She is honoring the vows of her marriage. How wrong is that? 😉

  • Marcia

    That’s what people in the ATL are saying………… someone has redirected her. The media can’t have THAT much influence over her decision. This is not the end of the situation by any means.

  • The divorce is BACK ON.

    Also, I have sources that confirm that Vanessa Long DID NOT AUTHORIZE or ISSUE that SECOND STATEMENT. We all know who did that. Yes — our friend ART FRANKLIN.

    • Oh, I KNEW Art was behind that. And THAT is why subsequently Vanessa indicated that any and all statements will be from her lawyer’s office, not on New Birth letterhead.

  • Marcia

    Yeah, I figured it was EL’s man Art. That retraction made her sound unstable. NB is trying to save face anyway they can.

    As Mo has said we now know Art LIED about Vanessa not leaving EL, and this to (retraction statement) is a L-I-E straight out of NB.
