We can't avoid talking about it! It's a tale of two cookies...Vanessa, the smart cookie and Kobe, the dumb cookie! It's been all over the gossip sites since Vanessa announced the divorce on Friday. The couple has been married for ten years and they have no Prenup. Under California law, Vanessa will get alimony for the rest of her life unless she remarries, not to mention child support for their two girls. Last year Kobe earned about $53 Million before taxes. That's a nice piece of change to get half! Ladies, can you blame her? Was it all about the money for her?
Here's my take:
Most people, especially men are calling Vanessa "a gold-digger." I think she is just getting what she is entitled to. Why should she be blamed because Kobe is an idiot? Before they got married Kobe was advised by everyone to sign a prenup...he refused. You can't gross that much money and not protect your wealth. Yea sure when most people marry it's with the intention that it will last forever, but we all know that isn't always the case. I see him as being sooo arrogant that he probably thought, this chick will never leave me...doesn't she know who I am...I'm Kobe Bryant! Well, Mr. Bryant...Vanessa does know who you are...a cheater worth millions! I say more power to her, she totally played her part. She stood by her man and kept the appearance of the loving wife that wanted things to work out. Those close to them have said that Kobe continued to be unfaithful in the marriage up until now. Vanessa probably started planning her escape years ago, while Kobe thought he had everything under control. I have no compassion for cheaters...if you can't be faithful simply stay single! And another thing....she helped build their empire too. No she isn't running up and down a court every week, but she's raising their children, managing their home, being supportive, etc. When you get married two become one, what's yours is mine and vice versa. Fellas, never under-estimate a woman scorn. Ladies, remember don't get mad, get half!
