As the title of this post says, it was just December of last year that Vanessa Bryant filed for divorce from Kobe Bryant and folks were talking about homegirl possibly receiving a whopping $75 million and three homes in a divorce settlement. Last Christmas, it was safe to say that the smiles from the couple were few and far between when it comes to being directed at one another. This year that is now coming to a close, according to their lawyers, was supposed to be the time that they dissolved their marriage. But this year has seen Vanessa and Kobe moving about together, Vanessa showing up at games, Kobe with his family, all smiles again. And they have closed out this year with a holiday photo that is the kind of cute pic I’m used to (move over Shaunie and the Kardashians) as everyone is rocking big smiles and fabulous Christmas colors. Well, Kobe is wearing a suit, but I doubt anybody wanted to see him in a Cosby Christmas sweater. Vanessa also snapped a glammed up pic with her daughters, Natalia (to the far right in both pics) and Gianna, as she rocked the velvet green Gucci dress that was a celebrity favorite this year.
I can’t confirm for you if all this means that they are one big happy family and that the couple is working on resolving issues that put them on the brink of divorce this time last year. It would make sense though, because in June they were putting they were said to allegedly be putting their split on hold for the time being, but either way, it’s nice to see them putting on a happy face for their lovely daughters. They’ve been down with one another for a while now (and she’s put up with hellas), and if they can make it work, then that’s what’s up! Here’s to a happy 2013 to them, and kudos on delivering a very fun and, dare I say, human holiday photo for such high-profile people. Do you like the photo?
