Vanessa Long: I'm Divorcing Eddie Long, I'm Not Divorcing, Divorce Back On

By Robert Paul Reyes

"She`s out. She`s in. And now, she`s out again. Bishop Eddie Long`s wife has been back and forth with whether or not she`s seeking divorce from the controversial minister. In a couple of days, the saga involving Vanessa Long and her divorce, or not, from Eddie Long has been twisted.


Now, however, it appears that after a back-and-forth swing, Vanessa Long does want a divorce from Eddie Long."

If a woman is married to a self-loathing gay bishop with a long history of financial improprieties and who has settled with four young men who accused him of s[e]xually molesting them, she should divorce posthaste. It`s a no-brainer, she shouldn`t be going through any Hamlet-like "should I, or shouldn`t I divorce the creep" deliberations.

Yesterday morning after "prayerful consideration" Vanessa Griffen Long announced she was divorcing the disgraced minister, and then in the afternoon she said that upon "prayerful reconsideration" she had decided not to divorce the gay minister after all.

Latest development: According to Vanessa`s attorney "she has determined that dismissal of her divorce petition is not appropriate at this time."

There is no mention of the Almighty in the statement released by Vanessa`s lawyer; I guess she gave up relying on a deity who can`t make up his mind.

The lawyer left open the option that Vanessa my dismiss her divorce petition at some point in the future -- like tomorrow.

It`s 10 in the morning, does anyone know if Vanessa Griffin Long is still married to the gay Bishop Eddie Long?
