Our sister site broke  news that Vanessa Long filed for divorce from the Bishop Eddie Long on December 1, 2011.


After news of the divorce was revealed, Long’s spokesperson Art Franklin confirmed that the Bishop would be taking a break from New Birth. The Bishop confirmed the same.


Vanessa would not comment to news at the time, but as you can see from the video she delivers a tearful explanation of  the troubling time.


Most of us remember Eddie Long defiantly telling the press “I’m not stepping down, I’m stepping up!”


Do you think she should have returned?
