Jesse James’ Dad Says There Was No Abuse

When Jesse James sat down for his “Nightline” interview, he had an interesting explanation for why he torpedoed his marriage to Sandra Bullock by cheating with multiple women—he was abused as a child. “[My dad] beat my ass pretty good a bunch of times. I was petrified of my dad … I was a terrorized kid,” he said. “My mind rationalized [cheating], ‘Well, you know, I might as well do whatever I can to like run her off cause she is going to find out what I am anyway and leave me anyway.’”

But Jesse’s dad, Larry James, is taking serious issue with this statement, and he sat down yesterday for an interview with Radar to say that the alleged abuse never happened. “When I watched Jesse on ‘Nightline’ last night, I was disgusted, horrified, and brokenhearted to hear what my son said about me because none of it is true,” he said.

Quotable: Jessica Simspon Says “Price Of Beauty” Is Like “Missionary Work”

“I’m not saying I’m changing the world. But…to be able to sit with my Dad and [create] ‘Price of Beauty.’ It’s similar to missionary work. It was what I was called to do and called to be.”

Jessica Simpson discussed her role on her VH1 show, in which she explored definitions of beauty in various cultures around the world, while accepting an award at the Gracies (which honor women in radio and TV) in Beverly Hills Tuesday. Yep, sounds just like missionary work to us. [via Us Weekly] Keep reading »

Let’s Play The Cheating Game: Match The Cheater With His Excuse

Tuesday night was Jesse James’ big “Nightline” interview. We were all waiting to find out what he had to say for himself after the heinous Sandra Bullock betrayal. So what was his million dollar excuse? He says he cheated because he was abused as a child. “[My persona] is a smoke screen so people won’t see that I’m a scared, abused kid,” he said. “I grew up with a huge amount of shame and fear and abandonment on my shoulders from a very young age and I think, you know, the way my mind rationalized [cheating], ‘Well, you know, I might as well do whatever I can to like run her off cause she is going to find out what I am anyway and leave me anyway.’” I personally felt sad for him that he waited so long to deal with his issues and they, in turn, ruined his life. Sandra will be fine. He seems like much more of a victim to me. All that being said, I still don’t think what he did was justified. So what did you think? Satisfying explanation or total BS?

It’s always a little hard to know what to think when a famous guy explains the psychology of why he cheated. After all, is there really any excuse? After the jump, let’s play a little game. Match the cheater with the rationalization they gave. Keep reading »
