Everyone remembers the continuous coverage about the breakup of Jesse James and Sandra Bullock, right? If not, let me refresh your memory: She won an Oscar for her role in The Blind Side (great movie, two thumbs up) and then discovered that her motorcycle loving hubby was revving this woman’s engine:
She wasn’t his only affair, but she was certainly the most…visible.
Now Jesse is back in the spotlight for his memoir, American Outlaw, and I have to wonder…who was waiting with bated breath to hear his side of the story? Was it you? It certainly wasn’t me.
I’ve never really been one of those “down with cheating bastards!” women that stalk around with their panties in a wad, crying over someone else’s marriage. Though I’m sure many will boycott the book because of that, because he’s the jerk that broke Sandra’s heart, my reasons are even simpler: he irritates me, I think he’s a complete bullshit artist and I have no interest in reading about his, alleged, shitty childhood. Boo frickin’ hoo, Jesse James! Go put some more motorcycle grease in your hair and stop your moaning.
In an interview with Nightline’s Vicky Mabrey, James talked about his new outlook on life:
“I think I’ve spent a good chunk of the last five or six years worrying only about her [Sandra Bullock] and what she thinks and what I should do and, you know, controlling all my movements and everything else and I think it’s time to worry about Jesse, and making sure Jesse’s happy.”
Pardon me, Mr. James sir, but whose happiness were you concentrating on when you were balls deep in one woman after another? Theirs? I’m thinking probably not.
What appears to make him happy now is fiancée Kat Von D, who he proposed to only six months after the end of his marriage to Bullock. And while he claims his book does not reveal anything about her private life that hasn’t already been exposed, he had no qualms giving up a juicy tidbit to the equally classy Howard Stern when asked who was better in bed, ex wife or current fiancée:
“That one is an easy no-brainer. Kat Von D. One hundred per cent. She’s a vixen.”
The memoir was released on May 3rd and, two days later, online shopping searches are pretty sparse. Rush out and buy it if you want, but I’m betting on the end result being more door-stopper than chart-topper.
