Posted Feb. 19, 2007 – Bishop Thomas Weeks III, the Atlanta-area pastor accused of beating, stomping and choking his famous televangelist wife says he wouldn’t mind hooking back up, but it doesn’t seem like Prophetess Juanita Bynum still holds a sweet spot for him.

On Monday, the estranged couple was supposed to appear for a mediation hearing in office of Weeks’ attorney. Weeks was there, bedecked in a brown pinstriped three-piece, accessorized with a pocket watch and fuchsia print bowtie, The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports, but neither Bynum nor her attorney, Karla Walker, showed up.

Weeks’ attorney, Randy Kessler, said he has been trying like mad to set up a meeting with Bynum and her lawyers. "I called five times, and each time I was told she was still in court," Kessler told the Journal-Constitution. "We e-mailed her. We told her we would be here all night if we needed to. She has not called us back. We agreed on this date."

Kessler said he proposed more than 20 possible dates for Weeks and Bynum to sit down and talk about the divorce. Each time, Bynum, 49, has postponed and rescheduled. Walker said, "This has not been some effort on Bynum's part to delay it. It is the nature of the beast when you're talking about dealing with two attorneys' schedule."

Weeks, who is still facing charges for the alleged Aug. 21, 2007 beating incident in an Atlanta hotel parking lot, said, "I think it is important to follow her lead.” She wanted the divorce. I'm willing to support her." As for whether they will reunite, he said, "We will leave it in God's hands."
