Nearly two weeks after publicly apologizing to wife Sandra Bullock and his children for “poor judgement,” Jesse James has entered a treatment facility, People reports.
“Jesse checked himself into a treatment facility to deal with personal issues,” his rep said in a statement to the magazine. “He realized that this time was crucial to help himself, help his family and help save his marriage.”
Jesse James apologizes to Sandra Bullock: “I deserve everything bad coming my way”
It is unknown what James, 40, is seeking treament for or where the facility is located.
Since In Touch first published a cover story about James’ reported extramarital affair with Michelle “Bombshell” McGee, three other women have come forward claiming to have had affairs with the former Monster Garage star. Bullock, who won an Oscar earlier this month, has since abruptly pulled out of two European premieres for The Blind Side.
Jesse James’ ex-wife: “He’s a chronic cheater”
James has three children from a previous marriage and has been married to Bullock since 2005.
E-mails to James’ rep were not immediately returned.
When hilarious news of a Mindy McCready sex tape broke Monday, we had a good laugh and wondered how long it would be until she pretended to decry its XXX release.
3… 2… 1…
“We are not aware of the production or release of the alleged film that seems to have surfaced via various media reports,” McCready’s attorney, Adam Dread, said.
“We can confirm that any illegally-obtained property, and/or fabricated footage, and the release thereof, will be dealt with swiftly following proper legal procedure.”
Got all that?
BASEBALL MISTRESS: That she was, though Roger Clemens is not involved in Mindy McCready’s sex tape, making the title kind of misleading. Funny, but misleading.
We’ve been around the celebrity sex tape block long enough to know that the statement from McCready’s lawyer was likely written with one or both of these goals:
- To act indignant and pretend the sex tape was “leaked”
- To get McCready in on the profits, a la Kim Kardashian
We find it unlikely Vivid would make it this far without obtaining legal waivers, but either way, you could say that she’s playing hardball … eh? Baseball Mistress?
Hello? Is this thing on? Never mind.
See the original post:
Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner who?
If Eclipse supporting actress Jodelle Ferland draws strong reviews in this summer’s release, she may get a major movie vehicle of her own soon enough.
That’s because Twilight saga author Stephenie Meyer is releasing an additional element of the vampire tale that just may bring the teen front and center.
The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner: An Eclipse Novella is a 192-pager about the newborn who’s recruited for the army hunting down Bella and Edward.
So no Taylor Lautner shirtless. But still, worth a read?
An Eclipse novella hits stores in about two months.
The story began as an exercise Meyer performed to explore the darker side of the battle in the third installment of her hit series, which grew into more.
“I’d always considered The Short Life of Bree Tanner as something for the fans,” she said of the book, which hits shelves June 5 (25 days before Eclipse).
And, like you needed more incentive for additional Twilight material …
A dollar from every book sold in the U.S. will go to American Red Cross International Response Funds to support disaster relief efforts in Haiti and Chile.
That’s even sweeter than Edward and Bella in bed in that new clip!

Oh, how the Lost producers love to toy with us. With only eight episodes to go, we’ve been introduced to yet another new character: Sheila Kelley’s Zoe. Why is she on the island? Kelley tells TVGuide.com that Zoe is searching for someone, and that she may actually hold some answers. Plus: What can we expect from the finale? It’s all about the alignments, she says. Check out this week’s Getting Lost below.
Holy freaking hotness. That’s all we can say about the rumor that Erin Andrews and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, partners on the new season of Dancing with the Stars, are partnering off the dance floor as well. Maks even said it might be on!
Chmerkovskiy says that he and the ESPN sportscaster are “maybe” dating. That’s a lot closer to dating than “no,” right? He also lavished praise upon his partner.
“She doesn’t hold back. She’s open, and what you see is what there is,” Chmerkovskiy told People magazine. “Everybody who meets her falls in love with her.”
Himself included? Sounds like it!
Erin Andrews and Maksim Chmerkovskiy work it.
Chmerkovskiy, who was engaged to fellow Dancing with the Stars cast member Karina Smirnoff for a time, credited himself for pushing Andrews during their first dance together last Monday, which ranked among the season premiere’s best.
“I made her do a cha-cha that I would make a professional dancer do,” he said, and it paid off, as Erin Andrews isn’t shy about gushing about him either.
“When Kentucky was upset, [Maks] texted me about it,” the ESPN reporter said of having to miss some of the NCAA tournament for DWTS rehearsal. “Maks was like, ‘You are the only person I know that cares about this.’ He’s been adorable.”
Who are you rooting for on Dancing with the Stars? Erin and Maks? We can understand that, but there are other good candidates too. Vote below …
Here is the original post:
Ricky Martin, who has dodged questions of his sexuality for years now, officially revealed that he is a gay man in a statement on his website earlier today.
The Puerto Rican singer,, who is planning to write a memoir about his life, says the birth of his twin sons (via surrogate) led to his decision to come out.
Ricky’s kids were born in August 2008, and similar to Clay Aiken, he says he did not want to live a lie while raising a child … in Ricky’s case two of them.
His coming out statement is well-written and at times poignant. You have to respect the honesty and emotion behind it, along with Martin’s reasoning …
“A few months ago I decided to write my memoirs, a project I knew was going to bring me closer to an amazing turning point in my life.
From the moment I wrote the first phrase I was sure the book was the tool that was going to help me free myself from things I was carrying within me for a long time. Things that were too heavy for me to keep inside.
Writing this account of my life, I got very close to my truth.
And this is something worth celebrating.
For many years, there has been only one place where I am in touch with my emotions fearlessly and that’s the stage. Being on stage fills my soul in many ways, almost completely. It’s my vice.
