Bullock, 45, and husband Jesse James, 41, began the adoption process four years ago and brought Louis home in January but decided to keep the news to themselves until after the Oscars. Their close friends and family - including James's children Sunny, 6, Jesse Jr., 12, and Chandler, 15 - were essential in keeping the adoption a secret.
Then, just 10 days after the March 7 Oscars, Bullock and James separated following reports James had cheated. Bullock says she is now finalizing the adoption as a single parent.]
Bullock didn't stump for the Oscar by parading her adoption. Now it's the surprise salve on the wound of her public humiliation. What in the hell was that sentence? Apparently I'm considering a career move to romance novels. Not that there's anything wrong with that profession! Meanwhile, Jesse James has also held close to type by releasing an emotionally controlling and narcissistic statement about his impending divorce. The quote from Celebitchy, also via People:
["The decision to let my wife end our marriage, and continue the adoption of Louis on her own, has been the hardest. The love I have for Louis cannot be put to words. Not having him around to love and to hold has left a huge hole in my heart.
"Sandy is the love of my life, but considering the pain and devastation I have caused her, it would be selfish to not let her go. Right now it is time for me to beat this addiction that has taken two of the things I love the most in life.
"I have always taken great pride in proving people wrong. That time has come once again to show that I am not what everyone says I am. I know in my heart that I can be the best father possible to my four children, and the mate Sandy deserves, and realize that this is an incredible mountain to climb. But I believe that the steps I have taken in the last 30 days are the foundation for making this happen. The lifelong commitment I am making is what being a real husband and father is all about.
"I ask that you please do not judge Sandy for the things I have done. She has done no wrong. She played no part in any of this. She has been an amazing wife, mother, and best friend, for the over 6 years we have been together."]
"Letting" Sandra divorce him after he banged countless whores? Jesse James is such a generous soul. And by the way, Jesse - no one thinks Sandy has done anything wrong. Except trust James, of course.
Editor's sassy update: I forgot to mention that I saw a billboard advertising Michelle "Bombshell" McGee's appearance at a strip club when I was recently in Las Vegas. Because that's how you do a tour of contrition - with your clothes off.
Demi on her hair: "I don't dye my hair, but I do have a few grey hairs that I pluck out."
On Twitter: "There is a direct contact and there's comfort, because you're in control of what's being put out there. If I'm going to have a humiliating or unattractive photo, I would rather be in on the joke and post it myself."
How did Demi look so "amazing" at the Oscars? "Trust me, it's a team. That particular day is really kind of a magical effort of a great group coming together to make it all work to its highest good.
Is there a secret to your eternal youth? "Well, you know, the reality of it is I've aged. I certainly don't look the same as I did in my 20s or 30s. I think that it's important to come from the inside out and that we wear our joy and our happiness and our beauty when the inside is radiating that. And then, of course, you have to take care of yourself. You can't abuse yourself, you eat well - all of those things that we all know. There really isn't any particular secret and, trust me, I obsess and look in the mirror and occasionally say, "Where's that little strap that I can hang around my neck that says, 'Help my face is falling and I can't get up'?"]
Ah, Demi. I've never known her to do much in the public service department, so the fact that she's keeping her cards close to her vest comes as no surprise. I guess it doesn't behoove her to share her trade secrets. Why spill the beans when you can romp with the 30 year olds in your 50's?
(Sheen) has been busted cheating, with photographs surfacing of him wearing a ridiculous fake moustache disguise while meeting Angelina.
Charlie's rep released this statement about the cheating charges with Angelina: "The woman in question is the sister of one of Sheen's campmates and Sheen was only responding to a 12th step call. Since Sheen knew he was being followed and how this would look, he wore the moustache in a tongue and cheek disguise gesture."]
I believe Sheen made a tongue and cheek gesture - in bed! I admire Charlie's dedication to the 12 steps. I can't imagine anything more sobering than having Sheen's penis inside you.

"Sandra I'm sorry. I'm sorry for your embarrassment. I'm sorry all this is public," McGee told Australian TV show TodayTonight (via Yahoo!) in a new one-on-one interview. "I'm sorry for everything," she continued.
McGee also admitted that she understands what Sandra must be going thorough. "I want to give her a heartfelt apology," she added. "I'm sorry for her embarrassment and pain. I do feel really bad about it."
McGee opened up about the first time she met Jesse James on the internet, after friend requesting him on MySpace and inquiring about a job position at West Coast Choppers. "He actually contacted me," McGee said. "I was really surprised it was him, at first I thought it was going to be a joke."]
Oh, Michelle - you were actually right. It was, most certainly, going to be a joke.
