It’s been several months since we last spoke of Jesse James, former husband of Sandra Bullock, serial cheater, racist asshole, and author. The last time we spoke about this dick of all trades was when he was in a relationship with Kat Von D, which ended after he cheated on her with at least 19 women. That was last November, and I haven’t really heard all that much about him since.
Now we know that Jesse is going to appear on a Discovery Channel special called Jesse James: Outlaw Garage about rebuilding a motorcycle, and thankfully, he’s promoting it:
On being pretty widely hated: “I’m not afraid of shit. Everyone can say whatever they want about me and call me whatever, but guess what? I’m still standing.”
On being a better person: “I think I’m in a pretty awesome place in life,” James said. “In light of everything that’s happened, I think I came out of it a better dad and a better person while living and working in a place that’s like heaven to me.”
On his Discovery Channel Special: “There’s a little bit of personal life [in Outlaw] with the kids and kind of explaining where I am now,” James said. “I hate the words reality TV because I think this is a refreshing change because none of it is scripted—there’s no made-up drama.”
So what do we think? Has Jesse really become a better person? I’m not too sure of that. I think there are some things you can never really come back from, like breaking Sandra Bullock’s heart and being a white supremacist, stuff like that. There are definitely more popular assholes to hate right now, but I don’t ever see Jesse James being seen in any sort of positive light, do you?
