Thanks a million!

It’s Christmas time, and I can’t think of a more perfect gift than this lil’ old blog reaching its 1 millionth hit.

Now, it’s official – that’s exactly what it’s done, a few months shy of its third anniversary. Thank you!

In addition to thanking you, my visitors, there are a few other people I must acknowledge. For without these individuals, my blog would not have reached this milestone for many, many more moons to come.

Dear Jesse James: Childhood abuse does not excuse cheating

I finally watched Jesse James’ interview with ABC’s “Nightline” and was struck by something he said.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
No, it’s not his allegation that he was abused by his father as a child.

It’s his rationale for cheating in the first place.

“I may seem like a monster in peoples’ eyes,” Jesse says, “but I’m not that kind of person where I’ll willfully be like, ‘You know what? I’ll show her. I’m going to get her.’ That’s what what it’s about.

“It’s about trying to push someone away that was going to leave anyway.”

Maybe there’s hope for Jesse James after all

In case you haven’t heard, Jesse James has gone to rehab.

People reports that rehab was “100 percent his idea,” according to his rep, and not because jilted wife Sandra Bullock gave him any ultimatum.

“Jesse checked himself into a treatment facility to deal with personal issues,” his rep told People in a statement. “He realized that this time was crucial to help himself, help his family and help save his marriage.”

The facility he checked into is in Arizona, says TMZ, and it also – ironically – was the same center Sandra visited while doing research for her role as a drunk in “28 Days.”

Yes, unlike some other male celebrities I could mention <cough> Tiger Woods <cough> David Letterman <cough> Jesse has decided to be proactive, take the bull by the horns and face his demons head-on.

I have to wonder if any of Sierra Tucson’s group therapy sessions look like the one depicted in this recent “South Park” scene (WARNING: THIS CLIP INCLUDES EXPLICIT LANGUAGE THAT MAY BE OFFENSIVE TO SOME VIEWERS – AND IT IS DEFINITELY NOT SUITABLE FOR WORK!):

Good for Jesse, I say. Checking himself into rehab is something  the *old* Jesse I remember from his “Celebrity Apprentice” days might do. Speaking of which, those of us who watched him on that show are well aware that he’s a recovering alcoholic who stopped drinking about 10 years ago. Let’s take a look back at how he forced teammate Dennis Rodman to confront his own drinking problem:

If Jesse been successful at keeping alcohol at bay for a decade, I’m hopeful he can beat this addiction, too. But in the end, it all comes down to how much he wants to beat it. And, I’m sorry to say, he can’t do it to get Sandra back. He’s got to do it for himself.

I wish him luck.

Jesse James: Oh no he didn’t!

I am totally bummed.

Although it hasn’t been officially confirmed, rumors are flying that Jesse James cheated on his Oscar winner wife Sandra Bullock.

According to In Touch Weekly, the affair went on for nearly a year, and the woman Jesse allegedly cheated with is a tattoo model.

Michelle “Bombshell” McGee tells In Touch Weekly she and Jesse had sex numerous times while Sandra was in Georgia filming “The Blind Side.”  Worse yet, she claims he didn’t use protection.

This all seems so… sordid. And, despite Jesse’s past (which includes two ex-wives, one of whom is Janine Lindemulder, a porn star who served time in prison for tax evasion), he’s always seemed so devoted, loving, honorable and crazy about Sandra.

I’ve written about their apparent passion for one another numerous times – here, here and here – so this latest bit of disturbing news is especially upsetting.  And let’s not forget that Sandra has been instrumental in helping Jesse maintain custody of the daughter he shares with Janine.

Is there a chance that the tabloids have gotten it all wrong? Sure. But when Sandra goes and cancels her appearance at the London premiere of “The Blind Side” (for which she just won an Oscar), and Jesse abruptly deletes his Twitter account without a word, you’ve got to wonder.

Jesse James on post-Oscar high

Am I the only one who bursts into tears each and every time I see Jesse James with tears in his eyes?

He did it again Sunday night at the Oscars. And – as if it wasn’t already impossible not to love the guy – he has to then go and gush to People how much wife Sandra Bullock means to him.

“She’s beautiful. She’s amazing. She takes my breath away,” Jesse confessed to People. “Sometimes I look at her and I do, I just lose my breath.”

Jesse – who obviously feels much more comfortable in jeans and a T-shirt – doesn’t mind dressing up if it’s for Sandra.

“It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to support my wife and her work,” he continues. “She does it all the time for me. She goes to Mexico, to the desert, to the hospital – a lot – to support me and my work. The least I can do is put on a suit and support her.”

Sigh.

Fortunately, Jesse is also more than willing to show his playful side, as evidenced by the following “Tonight Show with Jay Leno” clip featuring the very funny Ross Mathews:
