— Sandra Bullock’s out-of-nowhere baby news came as a surprise to everyone — even Jesse James’ self-proclaimed other woman, Michelle “Bombshell” McGee. Despite the tattoo model’s alleged ties to Bullock’s estranged husband, it seems James never mentioned the bundle of joy.
In fact, according to McGee’s father, the affair between “Bombshell” and James never would have happened had she known about the baby plans.
“I just spoke with Michelle, and she did not know anything about Sandra or Jesse adopting a baby,” Denny McGee told Radar Online. “She was completely in the dark about it. If she had known that Jesse was involved in adopting a baby then she would never have gotten involved with him in the first place. That’s for sure. It’s one thing to cheat on your wife but to do it when you are adopting a baby is really, really low. It shows just what type of man he is.”
Yes, it’s all about standards, and while Dad dissed James as a deadbeat for his actions, Denny McGee was quick to come to his daughter’s defense.
“I’m sure news of this adoption will have made her feel worse about her affair with Jesse — despite what people may think Michelle is not a bad person and is a good mom too,” the senior McGee said. “She honestly thought that Jesse was separated from Sandra and had no idea of this adoption or anything else that was really going on in his life.”
Author claims public is ‘entitled’ to know Oprah’s story
While Oprah Winfrey’s lone public reaction to “Oprah: A Biography” — or as the talk titan herself referred to it, a “so-called biography” — wasn’t exactly a positive one, author Kitty Kelley isn’t concerned.
In an interview with Parade magazine, the veteran tell-all tome writer explained that she feels the public has a right to know Winfrey’s past.
“This is a woman who's made her mark interviewing other people and getting them to reveal their most painful intimate, dark secrets,” Kelley stated. “Beyond that, we're entitled to a good understanding of a woman whose beliefs we have come to embrace.”
Of course, all those people who shared their secrets with Winfrey did so willingly on her show. “O” didn’t cooperate with Kelley’s big reveals, but the author insists Winfrey’s life should be an open book anyway. After all, public figures don’t come bigger than the queen of talk.
“Oprah, I believe, is more influential in our lives than most elected officials and certainly many institutions,” Kelley said. “She has taken on the mantle of a goddess, really. She's able to tell us how to live our best lives, what causes to support, what charities to contribute to, what politicians to vote for, and even what medicines to take. So I think we are, as viewers, entitled to an understanding of this woman.”
Dish on the fly
Rocker Slash offered to corrupt a minor by inviting teen megastar Justin Bieber out for an adult night on the town, but it wasn’t meant to be. “I told (Justin), I said maybe me and the misses will take you to a strip bar,” the guitarist said in a quote published to News.com.au. “But that didn't happen 'cause his minder told me that he's got a curfew and he's with his (mom).” … Flying in the face of American Dental Association recommendations, Jessica Simpson shared her own, eh, unique dental hygiene routine on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” The singer admitted she only brushes her teeth “maybe three times a week.” The reason? “Because my teeth are so white and I don't like them to feel too slippery, but I do use Listerine and I do floss everyday.” Besides, Simpson explained she needs “a little coating” on her teeth, so she’ll often just “use a shirt or something” to wipe them clean. For those completely grossed out by her hygiene hijinks, Simpson assured, “I have great breath!”
