News just broke in Atlanta that Vanessa Long, the wife of “beleaguered” mega church, child molesting pastor Bishop Eddie Long has filed for divorce.

Her statement…

After a great deal of deliberation and prayer, I have decided to terminate my marriage to Bishop Eddie Long. Accordingly, I authorized my attorneys to file for divorce on December 1, 2011…. 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”.



Well we all knew this was coming.
I was hoping she wasn’t letting him lay up in her raw anymore.
You know she is probably going to be set for the rest of her life?

But think of it like this Longtroke…
You can do everything you always wanted to do!

Wear a fishnet shirt.
Shop proudly at Pier Imports.
Wear his hair in a fresh wet Jerry Curl
Go to gay bars and blend in with the locals

The gay world is now at your finger tips…

As far as his wife:


When your Wolf does wrong, don’t get revenge.
Get his pay check.



  1. I am not too sure if you are talking about the Bishop’s wife or about Cookie Johnson lol. So since this post is about the Bishop my answer is yes she can take the money and run, however there are also a lot more perks of being a Bishop’s wife rather than a Bishop’s Ex wife.This is in terms of money, power, prestige and status. In divorcing the Bishop his present and future earning power could be seriously compromised as details of their divorce becomes public because she will have to give a reason for the divorce and then she will have to provide evidence to support her allegations like “yeah I knew be was butt fucking these little boys for years and here are the hotel receipts to prove it.” Also her filing for divorce could have been a brilliant power play on her part showing the Bishop unless he meet her conditions (money, separate residence, increase share in his businesses etc) she is going to take him down. Finally from a PR perspective it makes her a more sympathetic person in the eyes of the black church going community, and in the eyes of the court

  2. What this means in industry /PR ?Media Relations talk is that they reached an agreements that she would continue to operate as his beard and she will get more money and a separate residence. Magic Johnson and Cookie did after his HIV announcement and she wanted to divorce him but for public appearance reasons they stayed married and this for years where Cookie had a condo in the Marina and Magic lived at his Mansion in Belair..

    1. My question is…wouldn’t she get that check anyway? Or is it just to avoid the lawyers, lawsuits, & more public exposure (more for him than her – but I’m sure she’d be embarrassed). Seems to me she’d want the freedom to do her own thing, but hey…*shrug*

      Enlighten me, Killa lol

  3. I’ve been getting conflicting information though — I keep reading that she withdrew the petition…
