Everyone’s talking about this Jesse James Nightline interview that’s supposed to air on Monday night and ugh, it’s not looking good for those of us who want to keep hating him. Perhaps his act will be as transparent as Tiger’s, but the soundbites that are being released by ABC are kind of heartbreaking.
In the interview Jesse calls himself “the most hated man in the world” and says that he knows he “took a pretty amazing life and amazing success and marriage … and threw it away by [his] own hands.” He also got so worked up that at one moment during the interview he starts to cry and asks to take a break.
I’ve got a softspot for that meathead somewhere, and while my desire is to keep hating him for what he did, I know that I can be broken. Sure, I won’t forgive him for what he did, but it’s like taking back an ex-boyfriend who used to be a cokehead or something. Part of you’s like, “he’s a sick man and I shouldn’t turn my back on him.” Ugh.
