Eddie Long's Wife WITHDRAWS Divorce Petition, Says She "Believes In Her Husband"!

Talk about a change of heart!  Vanessa Long, the wife of embattled pastor Eddie Long, has just withdrawn her divorce petition...only hours after announcing she had already filed.

 

Drama ahead...

Well isn't THIS peculiar?  In a statement emailed to press just this afternoon--which interestingly beared the New Birth church logo--Vanessa Long says she has reconsidered her decision to divorce her husband of two decades.  She has conveniently been guided into this new direction due to "prayerful reflection."

The AJC reports:

"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."

She went on to blame "years of attacks in the media" for her initial decision to seek a divorce.

Also in Vanessa Long's first statement: "It is my sincere hope that this matter can be resolved expeditiously, harmoniously and fairly. I ask that you respect my privacy and that of my family, as my attorneys and I have agreed that we will not try this case in the media, and I do not intend to make any further statements concerning this matter."

Vanessa...is someone holding a pistol to your head as you type?  Blink twice if yes, once if no.  Just sayin'....

We all know how suspicious this ish now looks.  Good luck with that.

He promised to pay her to stay, can you imagine the money he's capable of bringing in??? She rather sell her sole to the devil for a red dress than live the life of a saint dressed in swaddling clothing lying in a manger. Poor pitiful thang, and we wonder why are young women are sooo disrespected and exploited on rap videos by men. "He said he gone take my horse and carriage away if I leave him, (in my Lil'Wayne voice). SMDH!

This is what happens when you

This is what happens when you don't pick the right person..... YOU HAVE TO BE CAREFUL OF WHO YOU CHOOSE TO BE WITH FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE!!!!Marriage isn't something you can just dip out of when your husband makes you mad or do something you don't like . You are NOW ONE with that person!!!! You made a Plea with that person!!!!!!! This is what a lot of black women don't understand!!!!Shit you knew that man was no good before you made that agreement to be with him for the rest of your life. 20 YEARS OF MARRIAGE??GODDAAMNIT YOU KNEW THAT NIGGA WAS GAY!!!Just cant jump into a marriage, divorce, jump into a marriage divorce again. YOU PLAYING WITH SOMETHING THAT Sacred!!!Eddie long is like alot of these preacher's man just a straight up con!!!But leave it to black women to fill the nigga church up, giving him all your rent money, falling on the damn floor every time that demonic nigga touch you,taking your kids to see him, he messin with them on the low. THIS TYPE OF SHIT HAS BEEN GOING ON IN CHURCHES FOR YEARS. Most of the time it happens to women or children. Women that's single, and children that came up in these single parent houses!!!! Alot of the time it happens to the kids that momma is single and she always saying "I don't need a man, JESUS IS MY MAN" godddddddddddddddddddd i fucking hate that shit with black women!!!!!!Jesus didn't have those 5 kids with your big ass, Jesus aint gone help you raise them either....I mean Goddddddddddddd!!!!

You are absolutely nuts!!!

You are absolutely nuts!!! Why is everything so one-sided with you?? You talk about the woman honoring their vows, but what about the man?? Where in the vows did it say it was okay to molest young boys, take them on expensive trips, and buy them expensive gifts? Taking vows does not mean for you to be a doormat. Why should she stay with a child molester? How do you know that she knew he was gay all along?? Why should she subject herself to catching STD's from him by staying? You are all screwed up in that head of yours. I'm sure if it was the wife that was caught up in some kind of scandal, it would be all good in YOUR book for the man to leave... Eddie Long's wife is better than most. If there were my husband and watched all those young boys testify against my husband, I would have caught murder one.. I would be thinking that he probably did that to one of our sons when they were younger...

It's not im on some punk ass

It's not im on some punk ass negro that put's the blame on women type shit. It's just that i know for a fact that black women KNOWWWW what they getting themselves into with these niggas. Men most of the time don't know, because women change up more than anything. Ofcourse when coming to that agreement in marriage samethingggggggg apply to mennnnnnnnnnn!!!!!!!!!!But she knew that NIGGA WAS GAYYYYYYYYY BEFORE THEY GOT MARRIEDDDDD!!!!!!I bet she fucking knew , a woman know's if a man is gay right off the fucking back....but then again black women will call a educated suit wearing brotha gay, but some thug ,skinny jean wearing nigga with his pants off his ass arching his eye brows isnt....so then again they might not know..I didn't say she should stay with him, BUT IF DIVORCE HIM, THEN SHE SHOULDNT BE ABLE TO MARRY OR BE WITH ANOTHER MAN AGAIN, SAME GOES FOR HIM. YOU BREAK THOSE VOWS ITS OVER....BECAUSE THEY BOTH MADE A CONSCIOUS DECISION!!

This payoff crap has been going on for years in whitey world. All those famous actors from the 30's, 40's, etc...were doing the same thing! This isn't new. But it is sad that these shitty dick dudes have this much power ie. Tyler, Eddie and the list goes on. Can't get a straight dude cause he wants white Barbie, so you settle for this nonsense.

Don't even say that shit,

Don't even say that shit, it'sssssssss plenty of brotha that love black women thats straight, thing is black women don't love they ass. They rather have them thug niggas , or them homo pretty boy niggas.Most of them brotha u see with white women got shoot down by black women before they starting dating white women!!!!!Got told "You to nice" "You weak" "You aint my type" "I want a street nigga" and a brotha aint bout to dumb himself down just to get with a black woman.. COME ON NOW

No! I am not speaking for all

No! I am not speaking for all black women, just those that accept these type of arrangements. It's the need to be important, have money, or to hide their own proclivities, that causes them to look the other way. What decent woman black or white, allows her hsband to be a homo-phile? And there are plenty of straight men that love women. But there are not enough of them! And come on now, MOST of the brothers who are with white women because they want to be and can be with them. Ain't no hate. Bill Coby, Donovan McNabb, Tony Dungy, President Obama all married black.

You are always on here

You are always on here speaking bad about black women. Your insecurities are sad. I really feel sorry for your mother (in my menace to society voice). Maybe you have some deep seated issues with her that you may need to iron-out. Seriously! My son would never in a million years bash black women in such a way. He loves and respects his mother so that he wouldn't dream of having a negative thing to say about someone or something of her kind of species. There are jacked up women in all races. Maybe u need to critque yourself, go back to the drawing board and try again. Maybe you're a scrub and sisters didn't want to be bothered with you. I'm thankful to GOD that I have a good black man. You have to bring something else to the table besides a warm body and a pretty smile. I do believe that love has no price tag, because my boyfriend was broke and in college when I met him and I was well established. He has a great job now though. I was able to except him out of love, but he had potential to be somebody. You have to want something for yourself.

You can always tell when a sad...defeated sounding sista is on here. I feel sorry for your mother...WTF shit we feel sorry for you! Black women have shit twisted...brotha's didn't start seeking out other races of women cause yall don't want us...we did it once we realized that we had options. Blame technology for exposing us to women that some find more physically attractive. There are plenty of pro black men out there for you to praise but you need to stop hatin brothas that have options. Its not disrespect...its called making a choice & if you don't get chosen then kick rocks!!!

It's his DISRESPECT towards

It's his DISRESPECT towards black women that she is speaking on, not his options or choices. READ his passage and then comment. We have choices as well and have always had them. For every Barbie that you find attractive, there are those that find the thickness of a sister appealing. We range in all shapes and sizes and from the petite to the grande, we work with what we have. So, the fact that black men are, with options, gay, or pedophiles, matters not. But DON'T disrespect us because of your options. BTW, I am happily married to a black man and I am a black woman who has approved this message.

Same thing happened here. When Juanita filed, MJ gave her some time of payment to delay things and make sure that his image would still be intact. This retraction is a delay, and she probably received money for it.

Perhaps she knew about his

Perhaps she knew about his outside activities like the Syracuse coach's wife did and didn't try to put a stop to it. If that's the case then she is deep in the shit and it's better to be united and guilty rather than divided. If both of them are in trouble, but not on the same team they can be used as tools against the other one. Anything could have happened, but I'm quite sure she knows NOW that he is guilty and something very compelling is making her stay...and it ain't Jesus.
