Entertainment behind the scenes
In the ongoing sex saga that is the breakup of Sandra Bullock and Jesse James, the Oscar winner has stayed fairly secluded and silent to the press. So on Tuesday, when she finally had a statement, we’d hoped it would be about how she felt being cheated on, or “blindsided,” by a man whose kids she fought for. Or, maybe her thoughts one of his mistresses. But no, it was a sex tape.
In recent days, an Internet blogger has reported, according to unnamed sources, that Jesse James had a sex tape of himself and Bullock. On Tuesday morning, word from radaronline.com was that James actually had 12 tapes of himself and other women — not Bullock.
People magazine, on its website Tuesday, posted a statement from Bullock in which she says: “There is no sex tape. There never has been one and there never will be one.”
What we liked was the end of her statement, the “…never will be one.” It was sort of spiky. Had some spunk. Maybe it’s time for Sandy to come out swinging?
It might come as no surprise to hear that Jesse James, the tattoo-loving husband of Hollywood darling Sandra Bullock, has checked into rehab in the hope of saving his marriage. With four women now claiming to have had affairs with James during his five year marriage to Bullock, his representative told People magazine that he was seeking professional help.
“Jesse checked himself into a treatment facility to deal with personal issues,” his rep said in a statement. “He realized that this time was crucial to help himself, help his family and help save his marriage.”
So far, in the crazy saga that is Jesse James (Mr. Sandra Bullock, for now) and his affair with Michelle “Bombshell” McGee, we’ve tried to stay away from scandalous headlines. But this one was too good. Word comes from celebrity magazine Life & Style that Playgirl has offered $500,000 to Jesse if he’ll pose nude on its pages. Life & Style quotes Playgirl spokesman Daniel Nardicio as saying “We’d want him to pose in a Coney Island freak show setting. It would be a whole circus-themed shoot…” And that would seem appropriate. (note: we tried to reach Nardicio for confirmation, but were unsuccesssful)
The reason we took note of this one — other than the fact it’s funny — is that since the news of Sandy’s problems with Jesse broke, we’ve wondered, “without Sandy’s checkbook, what will Jesse do?” No doubt, given his own level of notoriety as the star of TV’s “Monster Garage” Jesse has made some bank. But trade that in for an Oscar winner’s career? One whose most recent movie, “The Blind Side,” has earned more than $250 million at box offices? We don’t think that’s such a smart move. Then again, neither was “Bombshell.”
