Jesse James’ interview with Vicky Mabry of Nightline exposes some intimate details about Sandra Bullock’s reaction to James’ serial cheating. Details of their discussions that most of us thought we would never be privileged to hear are being shared by James. He gives a reason for doing this and once again it appears to be selfish on his part, as seen on the video clip on TMZ.
James does not tell Mabry that he is doing this interview to make it easier on Bullock when she comes back into public eye. He didn’t even say he is doing this so Sandy won’t have any fingers pointed her way for some of his mistakes. James is doing this so people will not think he is a “Nazi”. This is the reason he gave for doing the interview.
TMZ has a new clip from the interview James gave on Nightline. In this clip he makes it clear that he did cheat on his wife many times, he also says he still loves Sandra very much. The reasons he gave for cheating were most likely being echoed by James from his counseling sessions. Jesse said he “self-sabotaged” his life because it was going so well and deep down he believes that he doesn’t deserve this happiness. He mentions that he did not even know he was doing this until it was pointed out to him.
So let’s get this straight: James cheated with numerous strippers and porn stars to punish himself! Poor guy, this must have been very hard on him. James is selfish and it is still coming though in this interview. He is taking the phrases he has learned throughout his counseling sessions and using them as tag lines for excuses, ones that let him off the hook.
He tells his side of the story about Sandra’s reaction when he told her that the news of his infidelity was true and that he was cheating on her. He said Sandra left with the new baby, but a few days later she told him she was proud of him for getting help in the sex rehab. James still is not seeing this horrific act that he did to Sandra for its full intensity. I am sure Sandra had a few things to say in between being told about Jesse’s cheating to the time she said she was “proud of him”. James just does not see it that way. Again, this is a man who cannot see beyond his nose.
James is a big overgrown boy in a man’s body and his immaturity frequently bleeds through. He is taking on the responsibility by turning it around and portraying himself as a victim of “self sabotaging” his own life. This works well for how he sees himself and this new way of looking at his mistakes will not interfere with his self image.
James is a man who started cheating on his wife two weeks into his marriage. He gave the excuse to his other women, that Sandra was away and living in Austin. She was making a movie at the time and staying near the movie location. It may have been a great line to give the other woman, but this is the way her really thinks. James lives in a world of instant gratification, which is what his sexual affairs were all about. He lives only in the moment, and a very selfish moment at that.
When Sandra was away, he was single in his mind. When he cheated on Sandra, he uses the excuse he did so to punish himself. Jesse can truly rationalize his actions so he can live with them without guilt.
This is evident with his reaction to Sandra’s Oscar speech when she basically said it was because of James that she won it. He had a face that looked so proud while in the audience that night. This was because in his mind he had not done anything wrong at that time.
