The Word: Jesse James is still a jerk

Jesse James.

Jesse James is still very publicly working through his issues with ex-wife Sandra Bullock. “I’m 100 percent to blame,” he tells Piers Morgan during an interview, describing his marriage to the actress as a “pretend” life he’s glad to be free of. “I don’t think me and Sandy were ever really friends.” And while James takes full responsibility for his infidelity, he doesn’t think he’s worth singling out. “I was never 100 percent in,” he recently told Men’s Journal. “I cheated on my wife. Guess what? So do millions of other men.”

Argh! My hatred of him burns with the white-hot intensity of a thousand suns! I am so angry I can’t even form a witty retort to his jerkfaceness! How can Kat Von D listen to this and not want to stab him in the eye, let alone still get married to him? All of that tattoo ink must be clouding their judgment.

Rihanna to fans: Calm down!

Fans are in an uproar with Rihanna for following ex-boyfriend Chris Brown on Twitter, according to E! Online. And with Brown also following Rihanna’s feed, some fans worry a reconciliation is in the works. “I never thought you would go back to him! You better not,” one fan posted. But the singer insists it doesn’t mean anything. “Its f—ing Twitter, not the alter! Calm down,” Rihanna tweeted. Truer words have never been, um, tweeted?
