Sandra Bullock

UPDATE, 9:30 a.m. ET Wednesday: A spokesperson for TMZ says the site has "absolute confirmation" that the letter was sent to both Kevin Huvane's office and Fortis Films on Sunday afternoon. Huvane is Bullock's agent; Fortis Films is her production company.

Melissa Smith, one of Jesse James’s alleged mistresses, reportedly sent a letter of apology to the agent of James’s wife, Sandra Bullock.

According to a letter posted on TMZ.com, Smith wrote to Bullock: “I felt I needed to reach out to you and tell you how deeply sorry I am for everything that you’ve been through….But I sincerely wanted to take a moment to personally apologize to you.”

Smith added, "My actions of engaging with a married man are unforgivable. I never meant you any harm. I compromised my beliefs on several occasions and as a result, will never forgive myself."

Bella Swan’s engagement ring coming soon to a proposal near you

Stephenie Meyer’s vampires and the awkward teen girl who loves them may be fiction, but the engagement ring Edward presents to Bella in the "Twilight" series is now a real piece of jewelry up for purchase.

Meyer co-designed the bauble with Infinite Jewelry Co. to match the description in her book, which, as TresSugar.com points out, you can see in the latest trailer for the upcoming movie in the “Twilight” saga, “Eclipse.”

The jeweler offers a "genuine" version of the ring in 14k white or yellow gold, and it's currently on sale for $1,979 dollars. Those who are looking for less of a commitment can pick up the fashion version for $35, or the “fine” version of the ring for $479.

All the rings come in both white gold and yellow gold, but as Infinite Jewelry Co. instructs buyers, “The ring that Edward gave to Bella is described as gold, so if you want your ring to be exactly like Bella's, order Yellow Gold.”

Lady Gaga is not the only artist stirring the pot these days with graphic music videos.

Sri-Lankan singer/rapper M.I.A. is raising some eyebrows with her violent and explicit new music video for her song “Born Free.”

The almost nine minute video shows a police force rounding up young, red-headed men and includes such graphic scenes as a young man being shot point-blank in the head and another being blown to pieces.

'24' recap: Not all episodes are created equal

"24": Day 8 - 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Welcome back Bauerites. You'll be happy to know I've gotten over the severe case of "acute Bauer-citis" I was suffering from last week.

I came to the realization that all episodes of "24" are not created equal. Some shows are chock full of choke holds, flying bullets and characters dying from their wounds, while other shows require a bit more patience and understanding as they seek to bring us closer to certain characters and develop the drama of the plot lines over the course of the hour.

See? Just like that, I'm cured!

As fans of the show, we've become conditioned to get "jacked" about watching. The highs are so high, that it provides lows while we wait for the next piece of the action. We're spoiled by the built-in adrenaline rush and the heart-pounding tension goes with the show like medium sized-fries on the side. Its why we love "24" right? FULL POST

'Dancing' recap: Champ suffers concussion, low scores

Poor Evan Lysacek. The Olympic skating champ who has been doing so well on “Dancing With the Stars” not only suffered a mild concussion during rehearsals for last night’s show, but also received his first bad reviews from the judges.

Lysacek performed the samba with his professional partner Anna Trebunskaya - a performance that seemed really terrific and showed off his great posture and dancing skills. But judge Bruno Tonioli summed it up this way: “It was pretty to look at, but it wasn’t correct for this dance.” Judge Len Goodman called it Lysacek’s worst dance so far and pronounced it “too balletic.”

Lysacek seemed to take it all in stride, perhaps still recovering from the concussion he suffered while Trebunskaya flipped him over her back as they were rehearsing for the swing dance marathon, prompting him to land straight on his head... a moment the producers showed over and over again.
