Michelle ‘Bombshell’ McGee, not pictured at left, says she owes Sandra Bullock an apology.

Gee, ya think?

In a lightning quick reaction to weeks-old events, McGee has gone bravely to the global stage that is Australian television, painting Jesse James as bad guy (but also a tattooed dream date) who talked her out of thinking he was a married man. Indeed, the ‘Today Tonight’ interviewer seems to believe James’ story as well, referring to Bullock’s marriage to James in the past tense.

McGee likens herself to Bullock, saying they were both equally duped by the West Coast Choppers owner. She also allows that, even though the two didn’t seem to have much in common, ‘maybe’ James was in love with his wife, possibly attracted to her goodness and ‘cleanliness.’


‘I want to give her a heartfelt apology,’ McGee says. ‘I’m sorry for her embarrassment and her pain. I do feel really bad about it.’ She’d like to tell Sandra, ‘I’m sorry all this is public.’

Not much discussion of why McGee made everything public in the first place, however, except ...

... that she saw them at the Oscars, heard Bullock’s acceptance speech and wanted the actress to know the truth about her man. Which of course was best accomplished not by contacting anyone discreetly but rather by accepting cash from a tabloid to tell the story in public. The Bombshell is touchingly surprised that more people aren’t taking her side, because James -- whom she says she never loved -- is ‘the bad guy.’

Best part of the interview: Hearing Bombshell McGee call Jesse James’ behavior ‘gross.’
