I found a slightly more uplifting Christmas-themed divorce story in the case of Cordozar Calvin Broadus, a.k.a. “Snoop Dogg,” a profane West Coast rapper who’s a regular on the pornographic Girls Gone Wild video series and the Howard Stern Show.

Mr. Broadus filed for divorce in 2004 against Shante, his wife of seven years and mother of their three children. But in 2007 he reconciled with his wife, called off the divorce, and resumed his role as head of the family.

“I was caught up with Hollywood, and the girls and the night life,” he told the World Entertainment News Network. “I thought I was ‘the man’ and I was willing to give up what I had at home for that, until I realized that what I had at home was irreplaceable, so I gave that up to go back home.

“I just don’t want another man raising my kids. That was the main goal. I had kids with my wife because I wanted to be with my wife. And those three babies [Corde, Cordell and Coril] are all wanted, and I wanted to be with them.”

Mr. Broadus embodies many of the pathologies of the contemporary ghetto, but - bless his heart - he gave us a heartwarming Christmas homecoming story I won’t soon forget.
