Jesse James The Most Hated Man In America?
"Jesse James admits that he `threw away` his marriage to Oscar-winning actress Sandra Bullock by cheating on her and calls himself the world`s most hated man.
James `took a pretty amazing life and amazing success and marriage ... and threw it away by my own hands,` he tells ABC News` `Nightline` in his first interview, which is scheduled to air Tuesday." Read more:
Sandra Bullock is America`s sweetheart, and by cheating on her Jesse James didn`t win any Brownie points with the American public. We are amazed and disgusted that James would betray his lovely and charming wife by hooking up with strippers the likes of Michelle "Bombshell" McGee. Why turn your nose at filet mignon, and grab a couple of Slim Jims?
But Jesse James is a scholar and a gentleman compared to the loathsome Tiger Woods. The tattooed motorcycle head never presented himself to the world as a role model and an upstanding citizen. We knew that James was a rough and tumble kind of guy, and when he first started dating Bullock, we prayed that he wouldn`t break her heart.
Tiger Woods on the other hand, marketed himself as the consummate professional on the golf course, and as a family man and all around good guy. Tiger made millions on a carefully constructed false persona, he deceived his fans, family, colleagues, and his sponsors.
James let down his wife and family, Tiger Woods let down his friends, family, sponsors, fans and thousands of young people who idolized him.
James made a heartfelt apology, we`re still waiting for the arrogant Tiger to sincerely apologize for his many transgressions.
James` career will continue without a hitch, but Woods is a ruined man and a ruined athlete.
