Jesse James has checked himself into rehab for sex addiction. Apparently, that’s all the rage these days.
“Jesse checked himself into a treatment facility to deal with personal issues,” the celebrity biker’s rep said. “He realized that this time was crucial to help himself, help his family and help save his marriage.”
Though the rep didn’t say explicitly what he’s getting treatment for, we can pretty much follow the story line of recent celebrity cheating scandals. As of press time, four women have come forward to claim they had affairs with the reality TV star hubby of Oscar winner Sandra Bullock.
According to TMZ, the facility is Arizona’s Sierra Tucson, and Jesse himself leaked the location. California police sources told the paparazzi site that when he was stopped for driving with tinted windows, Jesse told the officer he was headed to Tuscon to save his marriage to Sandra Bullock. (We do not suggest other motorists attempt to use this excuse to get out of a ticket.)
A source confirmed to People magazine that Jesse checked in Friday and stressed that treatment was “100 percent his own idea.”
Actually, we’re pretty sure it was originally Tiger Woods’ idea.
Perhaps the most-poignant question in the Jesse James scandal: If Sandra Bullock divorces him, as is widely reported to be likely, what will become of her relationship with his children? After reports that she would adopt her (allegedly) philandering hubby’s three kids, her rep said, “There are no plans, nor have there ever been any plans, for Sandra Bullock to adopt any of Jesse James’ children.”
But that doesn’t necessarily mean the Oscar winner will cut stepdaughter Sunny, to whom she’s been like a mother, out of her life.
“Jesse told her he’s going to make sure she sees Sunny as often as she’d like when he has her,” a source told OK! magazine. “She’s spoken to her and the other kids and has said she’s not going to lose those kids.”
Reportedly, Sandra is speaking to the children every day by phone. Glad to hear it. Let’s hope they don’t lose their “mom” because of their dad’s mistakes.
“Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kim Zolciak can’t seem to make up her mind about whether she’s dating a woman — to be specific, Tracy Young, the DJ who remixed her abysmal tune “Tardy for the Party.”
First, she cuddled with her in public, then she denied a romance. Then, Kim told Life&Style magazine they had indeed hooked up, insisting, “I’ve never denied anything. But I wasn’t ready to discuss it when the story broke. I hadn’t even had the chance to talk to my family about it. It was so unfair.”
“I’m among the millions of parents who have been in a gay or lesbian relationship,” Kim said. “To have the opportunity to speak for myself and to have people understand what I’m going through is really special.”
But now Kim said it was just a fling, and told a radio show that she broke things off because Tracy overstated it to the press.
“I said to her ... ‘This has blown up like crazy and I don’t ever really want to talk to you again. I don’t appreciate all this stuff,’” Kim said.
What happened to speaking for herself so people would understand what she was going through?
