Yes, Jesse James, we're talking about YOU!
momlogic's Julie: Hearing the news that Jesse James reportedly cheated on Sandra Bullock broke our hearts. How could this man who looked on so adoringly as she won the Academy Award be such a DOG?!
When she won the Golden Globe, Sandra said that before she met Jesse, she "never knew what it was like for someone to have my back." There were tears in Jesse's eyes as she won the Academy Award. Meanwhile, he was swapping texts, spit and bodily fluids with tattoo-model Michelle 'Bombshell' McGee? Maybe it was JESSE who should have won the Academy Award, because he did one hell of an acting job there in the audience, playing Supportive Husband.
Watch Sandra speak lovingly about Jesse to Barbara Walters here:
Watching that now almost turns our stomachs. We are outraged for Sandra!
WHY do men cheat? We have covered that ground many times ... with Tiger, with Gordon Ramsay, with Mark Sanford, with John Edwards ... the list goes on and on. In short, when they have opportunity, many of them take it.
According to relationship expert Charles Orlando, the top reasons men cheat are:
* Lack of emotional intimacy
* Marital or relationship unhappiness
* To reaffirm his desirability
* To re-experience feelings of romance
* Just want to have sex, or sexual variety
* Presented with an opportunity to have sex without getting immediately caught
* To satisfy sexual curiosity about having sex with a particular person
* The "thrill of the chase"
* The desire to feel important or special (an ego boost)
For some reason, this cheating scandal (which is still unconfirmed, but seems pretty likely to be true) is affecting many of us differently than the rest. Sandra is America's Sweetheart. She is a loving stepmother to Jesse's three kids. Even though she and Jesse were an unlikely couple, they seemed like such a good match. They just seemed like the couple you'd want to hang out with.
But now ... it seems like Jesse James is a cheater just like the rest.
Sandra was on top of the world March 7 when she won the Academy Award ... now, 11 days later, her marriage is reportedly shattered and she's suffered the ultimate betrayal. It just seems so unfair.
Sandra has survived losing her mother ... and she will survive this, too, we're sure. But stories like this just make us hate guys who cheat even more.
