Kobe Bryant and Vanessa

Reconciling ...

With Their Mouths

2/15/2012 5:56 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kobe Bryant and Vanessa shared a kiss in the tunnel on the way into the locker room.Another come-from-behind victory for Kobe Bryant ... sucking face with the woman who has now taken all of his homes, Vanessa Bryant ... and now TMZ can confirm the two are working on a reconciliation.

Vanessa showed up for the Lakers Valentine's Day victory over the Atlanta Hawks. The two shared a kiss in the tunnel on the way into the locker room.

TMZ broke the story ... Vanessa filed for divorce in December, and they have already sealed the property settlement deal in which Vanessa got all 3 Newport Beach estates.

But sources told us at the time Vanessa filed ... don't be surprised if she goes back to Bryant.

And, although Kobe and Vanessa have submitted all the necessary docs to divorce, it doesn't become final until mid-June, so there's plenty of time to withdraw the papers.

FYI -- we're told Kobe and Vanessa are NOT living with each other ... yet.

Wow what a great example to set to their kids - everything can be forgiven with money.

How can she look the other way? Wasn't he just kicking it with Kim Kardashian's bff Carla a few months ago at Kanye and Jay Z concert? Playing you Vanessa!

She used the heck out of him. She has his money because he was dumb enough to not have her sign a pre nup. What gets me is that in this picture she is all involved in the game. But I know for a fact that when she usually goes to the games she looks bored out of her mind and is not paying attention. But then again, he may feel that it's cheaper to keep her.

I don't know all of the cir***stances, but I can relate to Vanessa's desire to stay with the father of her children. I would do anything for my kids and have stayed in a not ideal marriage for them. It is possible to be content when things aren't perfect. The kids deserve stability so that they can grow emotionally without hindrance.

Body language: when someone kisses a person with their eyes open, it means they don't trust the person they are kissing. But I would've guessed that even without this picture.

No, she does not need to worry about money. What she does need to worry about is the fact that her husband is banging every female within a 100 mile radius. What she does have to worry about is Kobe bring STD's home. What she does have to worry about is "Where is Kobe? Is he really where he said he was or is he lying, cheating, raping AGAIN"? What she does have to worry about is the horrible example she is setting for her daughters by staying married to a man who is a rapist, who has zero respect for her or their family unit and who is a liar, a cheat and a criminal. What she does have to worry about is herself. She needs to ask herself why she is willing to settle for so little in a relationship. She needs to ask herself why she thinks she does not deserve a man who is honest, who is trustworthy, who has integrity and who does not lie, cheat and rape. She needs to worry about the fact that her daughters will seek out men who act just like their father. Her girls will seek out creeps, liars, cheats and will doom themselves to crappy relationships with men. Her girls will seek out "daddy's love" through other men because daddy does not love anybody but himself and he is especially incapable of any kind of "love" toward a female. The fact that he raped a girl, a girl who was someone else's daughter, proves the man is uncapable of human emotions like empathy and love.

Wow...Vanessa has a lot to worry about. I'd rather worry about have my middle class lifestyle than have 75 million and all of those problems...all brought on by one man.

I have no idea what her game plan is but Kobe is no idiot [he is, but what I mean is..] she's giving him time to get his duck in a row and squirrel away his money. Grant it, she only married him for his money-and that's fine - but don't say anything when you get a nasty disease or he initiates a divorce and you're left with nothing [relatively speaking] but you get what you deserve when you play games and don't know the rules. Because Koby will never see the error of his ways... he needs continual sexual assurances that he's THE MAN. He has cheated on women this entire life. He does not have the capacity to love---but she knows that.

LOL Thats so funny stuff,,,,,,, She couldn't stand the fact that she wasn't going to be in the lime light anymore so had to make an appearance to spark up the Buzz..... But like they say the money changes minds... She probably sat down these last couple weeks and calculated all the money she was going to miss out on and realized she wants him back... Guess she doesnt mind being the STUPID wife sitting at home while her man is out sleeping around.. Poor Girl..

She was probably thinking she was going to get on Basketball wives and they denied her Bug eyed ass, then thought to herself. "OMG Im Not Going to Be Famous Anymore!! Time to go back to My Cheating Husband!" Poor little girls. Wonder how they will grow up to be having a mother with no respect for herself...
