Here's what Jesse had to say about it:
"I think, you know, a marriage ending, all this crazy stuff…that was like a lesson to work on myself and fix what's wrong with me. So I don't transfer it and keep it going, like my parents did."
"I think I was just dad again. And like, eliminated all of the things that distracted me from being a dad…I think we're all connecting better. I think for the first time in their lives, they can depend on me to be there and I think the life here is better, you know, for the family."
"I don't need billions of dollars and I don't need licensing deals. All I need is my welding helmet, a box full of welding rods, and something to make and I'm in heaven."
"I need to come out of the shadows and regain what I do best. Just because I cheated on my wife and got busted for it, and it became a whole media s–tstorm, it doesn't mean that I'm not valuable. I'm sorry it happened. I'm sorry it went down the way it did, but I forgive myself and now I can move on."
Jesse on his affair during his marriage to Sandra Bullock:
"I don't know. I knew it was horrible. It made me feel horrible. [I] think I wanted to get caught, I mean I was trying to self-sabotage my life."
And here's Jesse on his current relationship with Sandra:
"[There's been] no contact at all for several months."
"I can't worry about her anymore. I think I've spent a good chunk of the last five or six years worrying only about her, and what she thinks, and what I should do…controlling all my movements and everything else…I think it's time to worry about Jesse and making sure Jesse's happy."
And more from Jesse on Sandra's adopted son Louie:
"I've never seen Louie since everything happened…"
"I could only cry so much about [Louie] until I have to suck it up and keep a stiff upper lip and realize, Hey, [there are] three kids that I do have. I need to take care of them and not worry about the one that I don't, you know, and I think that's the lesson."
Some of the things that Jesse's saying here certainly make sense to us, and we're all about second chances…BUT we still take issue with the fact that he's profiting by displaying the details of his marriage with Sandra for all the world to read.
Do U approve of Jesse James' new book? Or do U think he's exploiting his former marriage to Sandra for profit?
