Vanessa Bryant Reveals Why She Stays With Kobe

By: Sara

What is true love based on? Championships. At least that is the philosophy of Vanessa Bryant. She and Kobe Bryant have had quite a tumultuous marriage, and it may leave some to wonder why they stay together. Kobe can only buy Vanessa so many pieces of “I’m sorry” jewelry each time he cheats before it gets old, right?

Even though Vanessa filed for divorce last year, the couple is still together (despite some shady photos of Kobe sitting shirtless with some girls during the Olympics) and it may be because of more than a history and children together. In an interview with New York magazine Vanessa talked about how much she loves being a basketball wife. A very specific kind of basketball wife.

Vanessa told the magazine,”I certainly would not want to be married to somebody that can’t win championships. If you are sacrificing time away from my family and myself for the benefit of winning championships, then winning a championship should happen every single year.”

Lucky for Vanessa, Kobe knows how to win championships (five so far). But how long can he keep that up?
