Then, around lunchtime, in a statement sent through New Birth’s public relations firm, First Lady Vanessa Long said, that she was withdrawing the divorce petition:

“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.”

Six hours later, her attorneys announced she was proceeding with the divorce “consistent with her original [statement] made this morning.”

….alrightie then!
