Who didn't see this one coming? Everybody has had something to say about this divorce and it seems Vanessa, who's always stayed in the shadows of her superstar ex-husband Kobe, could finally get her say. But will she do it? Kobe may not have made her sign a pre-nup, but there's no doubt in my mind that a non-disclosure was presented as a part of the divorce settlement. Coupled with the fact that there are two children at the heart of this matter, I would be surprised if Vanessa took the offer. If she wants to come into the spotlight, she has enough access and money to do it in a classy way. Besides, she has enough on her hands with the divorce, two children to raise and now a divorce full of public scrutiny. She doesn't need to add a bunch of gossipy, self-centered, drama queens to her roster. Your JGF, ~Angela Davis
As one source put it, “Vanessa has more than enough storyline and would bring the show to another level.”
As for the timing — we’re told producers never dreamed of approaching Vanessa while she was married to Kobe … and our sources say Vanessa would NOT have been receptive.
