A new excerpt from Jesse James’ Nightline interview has come out and it’s not swaying me at all in my absolute dislike of him. The beginning opens with a bunch of clips of Sandra, teary-eyed and beautiful, looking at him during every awards acceptance speech and thanking him for helping her achieve her success. He looks back all doe-eyed knowing full well that he is carrying on an affair even though he has a new baby at home.
I just can’t get over that and I don’t think Sandra should. During the interview he gives his mea culpa but it seems disingenuous. He wanted to get caught, he claims, because he knew what he was doing was wrong but he just couldn’t help it.
“When I was doing it, you know, one, I knew it was horrible, it made me feel horrible. And two, I knew I would get caught eventually, and I think I wanted to get caught. … It was me trying to self-sabotage my life.”
He goes on to talk about how he never meant to hurt his family saying: “I never in a million years… The last person I wanted to hurt or harm is her or the kids. I spent my whole life with the kids and with her trying to protect her and protect her from everything.”
