"Will the Tiger Woods plan work for James?"

Who said it worked for Tiger?

I think most celebrity rehab visits are just the modern equivalent of buying indulgences.

The obligstory celebrity trip to rehab is starting to become derivative and insulting to people with real issues who go there wanting to conquer their demons and not to revamp their PR image.

PUH-LEEEASE!!! There ain't no rehab for being a dirty rotten lying cheating bastard.

I hope he finds some peace in his life. He's actually a pretty decent guy. I met him once at Bike Week in Daytona and he seemed very likable. All of us have some demons in our lives. Others are better at dealing with them. Good luck, Jesse. Donna and I will pray for your recovery.

Ya know, I'm just sick of it. If you can't be in a monogamous relationship, don't get married!

Sex Addiction Rehab. Yeah, right.

If people would just remember one thing..."To thine ownself, be true". Quit being someone you're not.

They only realize they have a problem once they are caught. Don't they know right from wrong while they are betraying their loved ones?

Sorry, newbeeboy, "biker" doesn't mean "unable to keep oaths". He made a vow of fidelity when he married. He broke it. I'm sure he had temptation galore and yeah I bet a lot of guys would do the same. That's only an explanation, not an excuse. Don't make the vow if you can't keep it. There is nothing wrong with not marrying these days.

I've gotta agree with hakafos here. Can we set up a special "rehab" for people who are just going there for the PR break?

If Hillary can forgive Bill after the humiliation he put her through, I guess Elin and Sandra can get through their respective messes. Bill, Tiger, and Jesse all seem to go for the skanks, don't they?

Having read far enough to be able to post a comment, I must ask: Will I ever get those four minutes back?

Posted by: Ralphinjersey | March 31, 2010 11:08 AM | Report abuse

Why do we even care about this guy? Who is he, anyway? Just another faux celebrity who can't deal with "success." He apparently has the morals of a tapeworm.

Enough with the "sex addiction" claims. Enough.

I did not know that doing trashy kinky chicks was an addiction.

who cares! Though Sandra Bullock seems like a pretty good person and she is from our own Washington-Lee High School. She deserves better.

Posted by: wdwjr72 | March 31, 2010 11:58 AM | Report abuse

Sandra "dumb dumb" Bullock got what she deserved; Jesse is who he always was and will ever be. It was crazy on her part from the get go, not his. She looks the fool she is and will forever remembered for it!

Did he forget his Buddhist roots?

Posted by: ashrink | March 31, 2010 1:13 PM | Report abuse

His loss! I have seen Sandra several times in interview and she never had anything but loving things to say about Jesse. It appears she truly love him, too bad he didn't love her back. No one deserves that. As for rolcan: that was really mean.

Posted by: donna476 | March 31, 2010 1:36 PM | Report abuse

What garbage. The guy messed around on Sandra and now thinks that if he shuffles enough she'll take him back? It's clear she's too smart and self-respecting for that. Dude, you blew it. Your paycheck is gone. Your entree into the good life, the life of celebrity, is gone. Your little girl may be gone. All this because you didn't feel like denying the call of your tired, middle-aged testosterone. Happy with your trade-off, Dude?

Since I completely 100% do not believe in sex addiction, and find it utterly cynical, I do not think Jesse's "treatment" will work.

Posted by: dramaticlookcat | March 31, 2010 1:57 PM | Report abuse

To Rolcan - Sandra Bullock is not stupid. She purposely waited to get married because she believes in it. She isn't like other celebrities who get married and divorced when the mood hits them. Who are you to say "Jesse is who he always was and will ever be"? Is that meant to imply that all tatooed bikers are losers and skirt chasers? You're the idiot.

Sex addiction IS real and is the result of alien mind control.

Sandra, did you try that ole super glue urban legend trick ? Don't worry, we got your back, especially when you wear an open back dress.

Ummmmm, u marry a person formerly married to a porn star. Not just a porn star, but lesbian movie porn star. I have to think convetional relationship was not going to be the norm.

"specializes in drug, alcohol and sex addiction among other disorders."
what a load of crap. I would say Mr. James and others of his ilk would fall under the 'other disorders' category, i.e. self-absorbed, immature, egocentric jerks who can't keep it in their pants. rehab -- yeesh!
