Jesse James: I was trying to self-sabotage

The implosion of Jesse James’ marriage to Sandra Bullock played out in the media for weeks, but everyone could only dance around the essential plot point: Did Jesse James actually cheat? Now, we all have the answer.

When ABC News correspondent Vicki Mabrey asked James during the "Nightline" interview Tuesday if he cheated on Bullock, he only had one thing to say: “Yup.”

So yes, he did cheat, but with how many women? James wouldn't confirm the allegations that he broke his vows with all five women who have described themselves as his mistresses, because to him, the number itself doesn’t really matter. “It could’ve been a million,” he told Mabrey in the interview. “Bad is bad….It’s just that I took a perfect marriage, a perfect wife, a perfect life, a perfect stepmother and threw it away with my actions.”

Gleeks go Gaga for 'Glee'

As far as I am concerned, Lady Gaga beat Madonna... at least on "Glee." The Gaga episode thrilled me more, hands down.

It was the perfect, over-the-top homage to an artist who is pretty over-the-top herself.

From the battle against the Goth, courtesy of Principal Figgin's dislike of Tina's look, to the wanna-be "Twilight" pack attacking and Rachel's pitiful Gaga inspired outfit, the show was better than ever.

'Too Fat for 15' headed to Style Network

The Style Network has given the green light to a new docu-series about the battle obese teens face when trying to drop the weight, according to THR.

The program, titled, "Too Fat for 15: Fighting Back," will follow the lives of four teenagers and one preteen as they attend Wellspring University, a weight-loss boarding school in North Carolina. The series was inspired by an earlier documentary that examined a British teen’s experience at the school.

Style Network President Salaam Coleman Smith told THR that the show will capture the “epic struggle of a courageous group of obese teens trying to lose weight… Their life-changing mental and physical transformation is must-see television that puts a real face on the obesity epidemic threatening our young people.”

You can catch the series on the network beginning in August.

T.I. 'made the best' of prison sentence

Rap star T.I. wrapped up his one-year-and-a-day prison sentence in December after serving only seven months, and he’s wasted no time getting back to work.

The artist's single "I'm Back" has been a hit on Billboard charts, his new movie "Takers" will hit the big screen in August and fans are waiting in anticipation for his next album release.

That's because from the first day of his release, "The first thing on my mind was, ‘Alright, let’s get to it,’ ” T.I. told Access Hollywood in an interview. “I was told that if you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life. So I’m out there trying to do the things that I love, and if I love it, I’ll want to do more of it. I love surprising people and myself.”

'Amityville Horror' house on the market

The tell-tale jack-o-lantern windows are gone and even the house number has changed. And now for the first time in 13 years (13 - spooky!) the "Amityville Horror" house is up for sale.

The five-bedroom Dutch Colonial Long Island home with water views and a boathouse is currently priced at $1.5 million. That's a long way from the paltry $55,000 it sold for following reportedly horrific events that took place there back in 1974 after Ronald DeFeo fatally shot six family members in their sleep.

The Lutz family moved into the home one month after the DeFeo tragedy, and their (fictionalized and sensationalized) story is the focus of the classic 1979 film "The Amityville Horror." The Lutzes claimed the home was haunted and that they were plagued by demonic images, walls that oozed slime, a crucifix that spun upside down in front of their eyes, a swarm of flies, objects levitating, a tiny room discovered that was not part of the house's blueprints and other such oddities.
