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?
19. 19 girls. It blows my mind that Jesse James can land any girls at all, let alone 19. Add on the fact that Jesse landed 19 girls within one year while also in a relationship, and consider me flabbergasted.
Would you like to hear something touching though? Despite everything, Kat Von D still believes in true love …
Never have I felt so strong about True Love, than I do today. I believe in Love more than anything else, and more than ever before.
Today I encountered the 19th girl to add to the list of people Jesse cheated on me with during this last year.
I kept going back and forth in my mind as to what the best way would be for me to release and let go of any residual feelings remaining from that toxic relationship. All of this may sound petty or immature to some, but I assure you this is coming from a place of pure honesty and love.
There was a time when I was confident and excited at proving the world wrong, because I believed so deeply in people’s ability to change for the better. Although this was not a primary purpose in the relationship, I did feel like it would be a positive thing for those who judged Jesse solely based on what they read in tabloids, to see that change is always possible – even in the people who seem hopeless.
I still believe that, even if that change never occurs inside of him - because I see proof of change everyday – in others, and in myself.
Way back when this lovely couple broke up the first time, I told you guys this story about how Jesse cheated on Kat, and that’s what caused the break up. It was a long shot, I know, and the story did sound a little shady, but it looks like Jesse really was cheating. You know how we know with such certainty? Because Kat Von D said so herself!
And there you have it. Are you shocked? Appalled? Has this changed your opinion of Jesse James (haha, of course not, Kat is no Sandy B!)? Or are you just content to never hear about these two ever again?
