Why is Latina Vanessa Bryant staying with her cheating hubby, Kobe?!

I will never, ever understand women (and men) who stay with their cheating spouses. I think it's one thing if it happens only one time, the person confesses and apologizes right away… then I can see MAYBE forgiving a person. But if the man pledged to be faithful and then repeatedly cheats on you, WHY are you still with him?

Case in point: Vanessa Bryant.

The long-suffering wife of LA Lakers basketball star Kobe Bryant has reportedly been cheated on many, many times. The two finally seemed to have called it quits last December but now, just days before finalizing the divorce, they seem to be working on a reconciliation AGAIN!

Seriously, WHY, Vanessa, WHY?!

That's the only thing I really want to ask you. Why would you go back to a guy who has cheated on you in the past? Do you really think he can change? Cause I sure don't.

Not to mention the fact that there is literally no other reason for her to go back, either. And by "no reason" I mean "no financial reason". They married pretty young and never had a prenuptial agreement, which means she'll get quite a nice amount of Kobe's fortune when the divorce is finalized. In fact, he's apparently already signed over the deeds to his three mansions over to her. So… again, Vanessa, WHY?!

Okay, so maybe she still loves the guy. Or maybe she's actually doing it for the kids. Clearly she doesn't need to do it for the money. Though, let's be honest here: living with a lying spouse that you can't trust and are probably fighting with (cause, really, how can they not be fighting all the time?!) is not healthy for your kids. And, on top of that, being with a man who may love you but clearly doesn't appreciate you isn't doing anyone any favors either.

So I'm hoping that she'll wake up pretty soon and realize she's making the biggest mistake of her life by reconciling with Kobe. I mean, his basketball skills aside, he's clearly not a very good husband. And she deserves better.

What do you think of Vanessa Bryant reportedly reconciling with cheating husband Kobe Bryant? Do you think she's motivated by love or staying together for the kids? Share with us in the comments below!

Might be that Kobe really knows how to lay pipe.

I think it's disgusting that you bring up money in this equation. Women always seem to think it's somehow honorable for them to clean out their spouse when they divorce. If she divorces Kobe she and her children will be taken care of no doubt, as they definately have been since they were married. Maybe she just loves him or better yet maybe she knows him a little better than you, get your mind out of his wallet, and think a little bit-expand your view of human relations beyond financial compensation and property.

Why did Vanessa come back? Well, she left and went out and got with a couple of dudes, but she had came back because Kobe has a BLACK MAMBA. Size matters LOL

You say she "deserves better", but we have no way of verifying that. Maybe she is a bad wife. Maybe she is just infatuated with him. They met and fell in love long before he had money.

she loves him, my husband did it, and still love him. that does not change. when it comes to love nothing stands up to it. not even cheating. that will pass. and if it does not oh well. she loves him. you go girl, i am still with mine and he does not make no where near the money yours does. but i do not think it is the money that keeps you with him. like i said its the love.

To answer that question answer this one: why is it that some women choose to stay with a man that has beat the living crap out of her. Answer that question and you have the answer to both questions

Because a commitment is a commitment. They have kids together and don't want to put them thru the pain of divorce. Plus, a marriage is a work in progress, and will always have it's ups and downs. Til death do us part right?
