RESET: Kobe and Vanessa Bryant reconcile

Kobe and Vanessa Bryant

Kobe Bryant and Vanessa Bryant are one again

Remember when Kobe and Vanessa Bryant were getting a divorce? Me neither.

They allowed the heat from the initial divorce announcement to die down so subtlety that its easy to forget.

As a refresher, Vanessa Bryant filed for divorce in December 2011.

Now, in January 2013, the divorce papers have been tossed in the fire place while she holds a glass of beaujolais and Kobe stands tall and strong behind her (at least in my mind).

So, just like that, they have officially reconciled.

Friday, Lady V posted the above photo and the following message to her Instagram account…

Kobe followed that up with this message on his Facebook account…

I am happy to say that Vanessa and I are moving on with our lives together as a family. When the show ends and the music stops, the journey is made beautiful by having that someone to share it with. Thank you all for your support and prayers! Much luv, Mamba out

I love that The Bryants have become social media savvy. Its nice to know they have a willingness to be a little transparent and to engage with their fans.

They’ve been married since 2001 and have two daughters, Natalia and Gianna.

Once this next photo was released last Christmas, we all saw the writing on the wall…
