'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Is Jesse James adding insult to injury?

Sandra Bullock’s ex-husband Jesse James is on a wild media tour this week, talking openly about the details of his split from his Oscar-winning wife.

In his new memoir, “American Outlaw,” James reveals very personal details about how he admitted his affair to Sandra and watched helplessly as she broke down in sobs.

Here's what we're asking today: Why is James writing about such private stuff? Is he just trying to make a buck? James tells ABC’s "Good Morning America" today, “I can’t worry about her anymore… it’s time to make sure I’m happy.”

I think he would've done well to clamp it when it comes to the intimate details about his split. The more he keeps talking, the deeper he digs himself in.

So what do you think? Is Jesse James adding insult to injury? Tell me here.

Other stories we are fired up about on the show today…

Shania Twain reveals why she lost her golden voice after her divorce, and "Showbiz Tonight" can exclusively reveal the names Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon picked for their newborn twins!

See you tonight at 11 p.m. ET/PT on HLN!

    Yes to whom made the comment on me about cheating, i have cheated on boyfriends in the past not ashamed of it either. I was not married nor engaged and did not lead anyone on into thinking i wanted anything serious. u sound like a boring goody two shoes but that is ur right im married now and both very commited to each other. But as for Jesse,Kat,and Sandra let them be. http://bit.ly/jKoLx2

    Low-Class. Just what you'd expect. You don't see Bullock going around touting what a d-bag this guy is. He took the low road for sure.

    Well. He was pretty badly maligned across the board by everyone. So I don't think it's fair to say he came out unscathed. Sure, it was all his fault, but we all do stupid stuff – not sure we would want to be judged by every single person in the world for it. I'm not condoning it – I'm just saying.

    He is trashy, cheater, and dangerous... He used Sandra Bullock's fame and money, just to get a show and make money for himself. I am very happy for Sandra; she is better off without him. A disgusting man has found what he deserves: a disgusting trashy woman.

    "I can’t worry about her anymore… it’s time to make sure I’m happy." Jesse James on his ex-wife Sandra Bullock. It seems to me this is what Jesse was thinking just prior to the affair.

    I dont know why anyone one who is in the acting profession gets married. Very few can stay true to one partner.
    Lets face it the morals in Hollywood dont exist.

    Its time Sandra got rid of the hang dog look about her and get on with her life. She is not the only one whose marriage has broken up.

    And I agree with one comment above, she is a mediocre actress.

    As for Jesse he has no taste anyway.

      She hasn't had a dog look she moved on with her life; bought a baby and went on a bunch of vacations with her friends. Don't be mean because no one has been willing to pay for your mediocre acting. Somebodies gonna love you one day....maybe.

  18. Reflect

    Wow. If I were Kat, I'd feel pretty concerned that my fiance still must profile his relationship with his ex to the media/world a month or two before our wedding...Sounds to me like he isn't over Sandra (whether it is love or power) and Kat isn't mature enough to call him on it. If she is indeed his friend, I think she might give him the space to get over her before tying the knot. But now that I think about it, I don't think Jesse understands what friendship really is. Perhaps Kat can teach him; I just hope he isn't using her just to soothe his wounded pride.

    I don't really want to know anything about Jesse & Sandra's marriage or their divorce. I want to know why Jesse insists on wearing that ridiculous hat and does he REALLY think he looks good in it? He looks like Curly of the three Stooges.

    I know that Inon of use knows the people involved in this saga personally, except Jesse's contrite Mom,of course, but Ms Bullock is not only my favorite actress but seems a genuinely kind soul. Jer ex spouse on the other hand is a pathetic excuse for a human being; you 'can't worry about her any more' ? Obviously you never did, you Sir are a class A jackwad and when your tatooed D-lister dumps you as she has done to all her other beaus I hope you enjoy your long and very lonely life.

    Sandy was wonderful girl & wife to my knothole son. I was young & I'm sorry I dropped him on his head those times. Academy Award vs Ink & Needles. Hollywood vs Hood. Go figure. Abortions were illegal back then, but I shoulda found a backalley Doc, just there aren't too many alleys around the trailer park. Again, sorry.

    JESSE JAMES EPITOMIZES THE TERM "WHITE TRASH." What a sick, twisted sadist he is. He has the nerve to say, "Kat has my back," after Sandra said it at the Oscars about him, but all the while this guy only had his own back, and was lying on it, screwing any piece of tatted up trash he could. Sigh..... he's so disgusting. I can't wait until his bad karma REALLY catches up with him.

    I agree with you. Tattooed ladies belong in the carnival sideshow. They are just trashy and gross.

      Careful Jemma, not all of us tat girls are trashy and gross. I hold down a very well paying 9-5 job, pay all my bills myself and am a memeber of the PTA at my children's school. I've been a single mom for 6yrs now, own my vehicle, house and work very hard to make sure my children are raised to have poise, grace and class.
      To lump us all in with the trailer park trash that Jessie cheated with is wrong and makes me think less of your childish ideals. Grow up and stop judging people that have ink. I see more trashy people without ink than I do with.
      What Jessie did was wrong and to now brag about what he did.... a gentleman he is not. "His time to be happy", please, it was always "his time to be happy". You took a vow on your wedding day, if you wanted to break that vow then you should have gotten a divorce first! Plain and simple. It doesn't matter who he cheated on her with or what they looked like. No amount of beauty or lack thereof makes it ok...so the arguement that they were hotter than Sandra is pointless and shows what kind of people they are.
      People need to start remembering what it means to be a gentleman or a lady...and what it means to take your vows seriously. If you can't, then don't get married!!!

      The difference is, she is the one who got crapped on by him. If she wants to tell the world what d-bag he is, than she has every right to. For him to talk about her just confirms his d-baggery. "I can't worry about her anymore... it's time to make sure I'm happy." Really, dude? Sounds like you never worried about anything but your own happiness in the first place. If roles were reversed and she was the one who cheated, than by all means, spill the beans to your heart's content. But that ain't the case here.

      I agree with B. While it's not all that mature to spill details (and what self-respecting human would want the world to know their most humiliating moments unless they just wanted the attention, good or bad?)to begin with, the one who got screwed over has the right to spill it. Although having been in that situation, I was too embarrassed to tell anyone. JJ just has diarhea of the mouth.
