At last week’s Guys Choice Awards, Sandra Bullock joked about the “spectacular I.E.D explosion that became my personal life.” The humorous nod to the demise of her marriage to Jesse James seems to indicate that Bullock is ready to get on with her life. However, James might not make that simple, as he allegedly has plans to move to Austin, Texas.
In an interview with In Touch Weekly, James’ ex-wife Janine Lindemulder said that even though James has every intention to move to Austin to be close to Bullock and hopefully reconcile with her, James has another romantic interest waiting in the wings.
“He told me that if he doesn't get back together with Sandra, he's got a ‘backup plan’ with another girl in Austin,” Lindemulder told the magazine.
While a friend of James’ insists that he does want to reconcile with Bullock — and is seeing no other women as a result — Lindemulder said that having a secret lover in Austin would be right in character for the serial cheater.
“Every city he goes to — even if he didn't have a girl that lived there, I believe he would fly a girl in,” Lindemulder claimed.
‘Real Housewife’ compares ex to piece of paper “Real Housewives of New York” cast member Bethenny Frankel now has her own show, “Bethenny Getting Married?” which follows her as she plans her wedding to Jason Hoppy. The two tied the knot in March, but the union Frankel is now talking about is with the man she was previously married to.
“I don’t know that I should have married him in the first place,” Frankel told Life & Style about her ex, Peter Sussman. They met when Frankel was in her early 20s. The two were vacationing in the Hamptons when mutual friends introduced them.
“We were best friends for five years, and he always wanted to be more,” Frankel told the magazine. They dated for two years, then married, and Frankel realized there wasn’t much passion in the relationship.
“I felt like, ‘This is really it? This is the person I’m going to spend the rest of my life with?’” she told Life & Style. “You can’t go to bed with a piece of 8-by-10 paper. I loved him because of how much he loved me,” she said. “I got married too young. I didn’t wait for the great love of my life.”
Fergie hiding out in Spain Sarah Ferguson has been lying low since her appearance on “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” and according to Us Weekly, the Duchess has been hiding out in the beach town of Malaga, Spain.
Ferguson, who told Winfrey she was drunk when she was caught selling access to her ex-husband, Prince Andrew, “is staying in her rented villa until all the madness dies down,” according to a source who spoke to Us. Part of the reason she’s not appearing in public is reportedly due to backlash following her “Oprah” interview.
“She tried to be genuine on ‘Oprah,’ but the feedback from the public was not good,” said the source. “She read the online comments after the broadcast and now she’s frazzled. The whole thing just backfired.”
