Jesse James didn’t just cheat on his loving wife, but he committed his serial couch seductions behind the back of the woman who was taking care of his three children from two previous marriages ( to Karla James and Janine Lindemulder). Sandra Bullock helped him fight custody battles and treated the kids like her own. She often picked them up from school as she did earlier this month right after her Oscar win and before she moved of the house. So what happens now?
“There are no plans, nor have there ever been any plans, for Sandra Bullock to adopt any of Jesse James’s children,” her rep said to People. Friends have said that the couple is making the welfare of the children a priority as they “cope with the crisis in their marriage.” The crisis in their marriage is called Jesse James and there is no coping with a chronic cheater. As for the childrens’ welfare it would be heartbreaking if they lost Sandra from their lives.
As The Daily News pointed out, in her acceptance speech for Best Actress Sandra said “what this film was about for me, which are the moms that take care of the babies and the children no matter where they come from.” We’ll have to see what means for her and Chandler, Jesse Jr. and Sunny.
