From the Associated Press:
Televangelist Juanita Bynum says in a two-part episode of "Divorce Court" that she's through with her marriage to minister Thomas W. Weeks III, who is on probation for assaulting her.
In episodes scheduled to air Thursday and Friday, Bynum also says she had thoughts of suicide and weighs in on a case involving domestic violence. When asked what advice she had for women in situations similar to hers, she said, "I have to make a decision ... to take the love that I had for him with me."
In a transcript of the show obtained by The Associated Press, Bynum said she would always love Weeks, but made a decision to "love me more."
When asked on "Divorce Court" whether she and Weeks were planning a reconciliation, Bynum said she is "done."
"I can't speak for him, but I no longer want the marriage," she said.
Weeks' divorce attorney, Randy Kessler, said on Tuesday that the divorce is moving forward. A mediation date is scheduled for May 13.
"Reconciliation is not in the works and not even being discussed now," Kessler said, adding that the show appearance could affect the mediation.
