JESSE JAMES' OTHER OTHER WOMAN

A second woman has come forward claiming she had an affair with Jesse James.

Melissa Smith, a 35-year-old heavily tattooed stripper -- sound familiar? -- tells Star magazine that she met Sandra Bullock's hubby via MySpace in 2006 and that their affair lasted several months. (James and Bullock were married in 2005.)

There are also reports that a few years back James paid a female executive at his West Coast Choppers 700-thousand dollars after she threatened to sue him for sexual harassment.

If James wants to recoup some of that cash, he just needs to drop his overalls for the camera. Playgirl is offering the motorcycle mogul 500-thousand dollars "to pose in a Coney Island freak show setting."


STAR OF I SPY & THE GREATEST AMERICAN HERO DIES

T-V actor Robert Culp, the star of I Spy and The Greatest American Hero, died yesterday after falling and hitting his head outside his Hollywood home. He was found by a jogger who called 9-1-1. A preliminary investigation has found that his death was an accident.

OCTOMOM DELAYS FORECLOSURE PROCEEDINGS

The Octo-Mom's foreclosure crisis has been averted -- for now.

Nadya Suleman's lawyer is working out a deal with the previous owner of the La Habra, California home, giving her and her dad more time to come up with that 450-thousand-dollar balloon payment.

PETA has stepped in to help, too. The animal-rights organization is giving Suleman five-thousand dollars to put a sign in her front yard proclaiming, "Don't Let Your Dog or Cat Become an Octo-Mom. Always Spay or Neuter." The mother of 14 will also get a month's supply of veggie burgers and hot dogs.

Sandra Bullock is having a hard time keeping it together.

X-17.com says the actress had an emotional time at a family dinner Monday night. A source says, "Sandy broke down at one point, but she came right back. She is talking about her next move.

[She's] one of the greatest human beings on the planet."


KIM KARDASHIAN & REGGIE BUSH SPLIT?

A source tells Us magazine, "Her fame is just a little too much for him to handle. She travels the world and has created brands. He just can't keep up. They are unsure of what will happen in the future."

Kim and Reggie split last July because of their conflicting schedules, and then reconciled a few months later.


KATHERINE JACKSON DEMANDS HARSHER CHARGES FOR DOCTOR

Following reports that Doctor Conrad Murray interrupted C-P-R on Michael so he could hide drug evidence, Katherine Jackson's lawyer tells the New York Daily News, "Mrs. Jackson never doubted that this man murdered her son, and these new revelations, if true, mean we need additional charges to fit the severity of his crimes." Murray was charged with involuntary manslaughter.

ANDY RODDICK SQUANDERS GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY

Most guys, if they got the chance to dress up Sports Illustrated swimsuit covergirl Brooklyn Decker any way they wanted, wouldn't include snorkeling gear and a silly headband.

The tennis pro was put in charge of her wardrobe for a public dinner date after she lost a bowling bet.



CELEB QUICKIES

SANDRA BULLOCK CANCELS BERLIN APPEARANCE

Sandra Bullock has cancelled a second red-carpet appearance amid rumors that her husband had an affair. Last week Bullock bailed on the London premiere of The Blind Side, and now she's backed out of the Berlin premiere. A source tells E! News that Sandra hasn't decided when she'll return to the public eye.

More bad news for Jesse James. His ex-wife, porn star Janine Lindemulder, is going to court to fight for custody of their six-year-old daughter. James was granted full custody of Sunny last year. But now that the motorcycle mogul is in the middle of sex scandal, Lindemulder thinks she has a chance of getting her custodial rights back.


BETTY WHITE WANTS TO KICK JESSE JAMES' ASS

Jesse James better watch his back. A Golden Girl wants to kick his butt.

Betty White, who co-starred with Sandra Bullock in The Proposal, is reportedly furious with her pal's allegedly unfaithful husband. A source tells Pop Eater that Betty "cannot understand why he would be so stupid. He had everything. A beautiful, talented wife who adored him, an amazing daughter that Sandra treats as her own, and he has thrown it all away for some floozy." Betty is allegedly so angry that she can't mention James's name without cursing.


TIGER'S WIFE WAS OUT TO SEA WHEN HE GAVE INTERVIEW

So where was Tiger Woods' wife while he faced the cameras Sunday? Elin and the kids took to the high seas on the family yacht Privacy over the weekend.

A source tells Radar Online, "Tiger wasn't invited. She's been very upset with him and was in a bad mood all week." When Elin returned Sunday night, she spent the night at her rented home in Orlando, Florida, not the family mansion.

The couple had been making headway in their strained relationship -- but then porn star Joslyn James published those raunchy texts allegedly sent by Tiger. The source says, "The whole situation is unthinkable for her, but then to throw a porn star in the mix -- it just makes her feel like she didn't even know her husband."


SACHA BARON COHEN & ISLA FISHER GET MARRIED

Isla Fisher is now Mrs. Borat.

Fisher and Sacha Baron Cohen reportedly were wed in a traditional Jewish ceremony in Paris last week. The Australian magazine Woman's Day says Fisher, who has a two-year-old daughter with the Borat star, E-mailed friends -- "We did it -- we're married! It was the absolute best day of my life... I thought of you as everything was happening, but Sacha and I wantedno fuss -- just us!"


PORN OR DR. PHIL COULD SAVE OCTOMOM FROM FORECLOSURE

The man threatening to foreclose on Octo-Mom Nadya Suleman's house has turned to Dr. Phil and Oprah for help.

Amer Haddadin, who sold Suleman the La Habra, California house, reportedly sent an E-mail to one of the doctor's producers, saying, "Dr. Phil and Oprah took personal interest in the steps that led to Nadya moving to the house. I have a hope that both Dr. Phil and Oprah will help me in timely and fair solution." One of Oprah's reps tells T-M-Z, "Oprah has not financially assisted Ms. Suleman in the past and has no plans to do so in the future."

But if Oprah and Dr. Phil don't come through, porn could save the Octo-Mom. Vivid Entertainment has offered to bail her out if she agrees to do a skin flick.

The mother of 14 needs to make 450-thousand-dollar balloon payment by the end of today or foreclosure proceedings will begin.


DOCTOR CONRAD MURRAY HID DRUG VIALS FROM POLICE

Documents obtained by the A-P contain some damning allegations against Doctor Conrad Murray. The docs claim Murray stopped performing C-P-R on Michael Jackson and delayed calling 9-1-1 so he could collect drug vials in the room and then hide them. The allegations were made by Alberto Alvarez, Jackson's logistics director, last summer.

Meanwhile more disturbing news about the alleged home wrecker has surfaced. On Friday, McGee's ex-husband filed for full custody of their five-year-old son, claiming she exposed their son to her X-rated performances in their home. Word has also spread that McGee is a white supremacist. On Saturday, T-M-Z posted images from her Nazi-themed photo shoot from a year ago, and her Facebook profile lists Hitler's Mein Kampf as one of her favorite books.

Ellen DeGeneres has come to the aid of that Mississippi teen whose senior prom was canceled after she planned to wear a tux and attend with another girl. The gay talk-show host invited 18-year-old Constance McMillen onto her show Friday, where she presented the girl with a 30-thousand-dollar scholarship from Tonic.com.

Ellen told McMillen, "It's always easy to be quiet. Especially when you know that somebody might tell you no or it's going to cause a scene. I love that you're not trying to do anything other than go to prom. That's what everyone deserves to do. Go to prom, it's a big deal."

Ellen even offered to organize a replacement prom for Itawamba Agricultural High School. The school board says it canceled the April 2nd prom because the controversy was distracting McMillen's fellow students from their education.


ANNA NICOLE SMITH ESTATE DENIED OIL BARON'S MONEY

Anna Nicole Smith's three-year-old daughter will not be getting a cent from the estate of the late reality star's billionaire oil baron husband.

A federal appeals court ruled Friday that Smith's estate was not entitled to the more than 300-million dollars she sought from the fortune left by J. Howard Marshall, whom she married back in 1995 when she was 26 and he was 89. He died a little over a year later.

Smith's only living heir is her daughter Danielyn. Her son Daniel died at age 20 in 2006 of a drug overdose.

ROCK: THAT'S NOT MY SECRET KID

She visits often and when here is a joy to the Rock family."

JESSE JAMES APOLOGIZES TO SANDRA BULLOCK

Amid allegations that he had an affair with a tattoo model, Jesse James has apologized to his wife Sandra Bullock and three children.

The motorcycle mogul released a statement yesterday (Thursday), insisting that "the vast majority of the allegations reported are untrue and unfounded." But then he went on to say that he blames himself "for this whole situation," and that "it's because of my poor judgment that I deserve everything bad that is coming my way."

He said he is "extremely saddened to have brought this on them. I am truly very sorry for the grief I have caused them. I hope one day they can find it in their hearts to forgive me."

The woman at the center of the scandal, Michelle "Bombshell" McGee, was reportedly paid 30-thousand dollars by In Touch magazine to blab about her alleged 11-month affair with James. Technorati.com says McGee, a mother of two, was hoping the affair would be her ticket to "mainstream celebrity."


TIGER WOODS MISTRESS LAUNCHES WEBSITE OF TIGER SEXTS

One of Tiger Woods' porn-star mistresses has launched a website containing every alleged text message the golfer sent her. SextingJoslynJames.com features more than 100 texts, most of which are pretty racy.

Here's a sampling of the sexts:

  • "O-K, I would like to have a threesome with you and another girl you trust."
  • "I want to treat you rough, throw you around, spank and slap you."
  • "Whatever I want. You are mine."
  • "I would love to have the ability to make you sore."
  • "Have you ever had a golden shower done to you? ...just morbid curiosity."
  • "You are my [bleeping] whore. Hold you down while I choke you."
  • "Having a few issues at home. Might be a little later before I see you tonight."
  • "Baby I'm not going anywhere or doing anything. You please me like no other has or ever will. I am not losing that."
  • "Don't [bleeping] talk to me. You almost just ruined my whole life. If my agent and these guys would have seen you there, [expletive]."


COREY HAIM SINGS

Corey Haim had musical aspirations.

About a year before his death, Haim unsuccessfully pitched a reality show that would have followed him as he got sober and pursued a music career. E! News has obtained the footage of Haim and musician Gerard "G Tom Mac" McMahon working on a song called "Mend Me."

In it, Haim sings, "Only I can mend me. Only I can turn this shattered soul into a possibility / You don't have to defend me / This time I own up to myself / This is my responsibility."

McMahon tells E! he wants to release the song with proceeds benefiting people battling substance abuse.


CONAN IN TALKS WITH
FOX

Conan O'Brien has entered into talks to do a late-night show on FOX.

The network has reportedly presented Conan with a framework for a deal, but the two sides "have not been in communication the past two weeks," according to the L-A Times. Meanwhile, Conan's keeping his options open, even considering moving to daytime. His rep, Leslee Dart, says, "[FOX and Conan] are definitely talking, but [FOX] is by no means the only place he's talking right now."


HEIDI FIRES PSYCHIC MANAGER

He probably saw this coming.

The psychic who Heidi Montag hired last week to replace Spencer Pratt as her manager has been fired. A source tells Us magazine that Heidi was "horrified" when Aiden Chase showed up on the set of her new movie Just Go With It and demanded a "significant portion of her Hills money." And while on The Hills set, he allegedly offered his healing services to Audrina Patridge and asked to be her manager. A source says, "He's this creepy older guy who is clearly preying on these young girls. It's awful."


INDIA LOOKING TO BAN LINDSAY LOHAN

India doesn't want Lindsay Lohan.

The government of India is considering banning Linds after she shot a B-B-C documentary about child labor and human trafficking there in December. Officials didn't like that she tweeted about saving under-age workers -- when in fact she arrived in the country after the raids had been carried out. It also turns out that Lindsay entered India on a tourist visa, meaning she wasn't credentialed to work in the country.


OCTOMOM COULD BE HOMELESS

Octo-Mom Nadya Suleman and her 14 kids may be living on the streets soon. Suleman is facing foreclosure on her La Habra, California home after falling behind on her mortgage payments.

CONSERVATIVES ATTACKING TOM HANKS

Tom Hanks has come under fire for comments he's made while promoting his new mini-series The Pacific.

On M-S-N-B-C's Morning Joe, Hanks said, "[The Pacific] represents a war that was of racism and terror, [and] the only way to complete one of these battles on these small specks of rock in the middle of nowhere was, and I'm sorry, to kill them all." He then compared that 60-year-old conflict with the current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. That set off conservative pundits, with one, Victor Davis Hanson of Pajamas Media, writing, "Hanks' comments were sadly infantile pop philosophizing offered by, well, an ignoramus."

He adds, "And I'm so upset, man. I'm so angry. Because this accident was not caused by me."

LINDSAY LOHAN: THAT MILK-AHOLIC AD REALLY HURT

Lindsay Lohan was so upset after seeing that E-Trade commercial featuring a "milk-aholic" baby that she broke down, the New York Post reports.

Her mom Dina tells the paper, "She said, 'Mommy, help me. This is wrong. How can they do this?'"

The ad, which Dina calls "mean" and "horrible," features a talking baby who refers to another baby as "that milk-aholic Lindsay." Dina says Lindsay is "extremely upset" because she thinks the commercial pokes fun at her troubled past.

Linds is suing the company for 100-million dollars, demanding they stop running the ads and turn all copies over to her. Dina says, "They're little babies doing this, mocking another child who's just trying to survive Hollywood, basically."

CELEBRITY NEWS: Conan Sidekick Slams Leno; Letterman Extortionist Pleads Guilty (audio)

ANDY RICHTER SLAMS JAY LENO, NBC (audio)

Andy Richter still has Conan O'Brien's back.

The former Tonight Show sidekick returned to T-V yesterday, filling in for Regis Philbin on Regis and Kelly, and he took the opportunity to bash Jay Leno and N-B-C.

Asked if he bore any ill will toward Jay and the network, Richter said, "Yes, I do. Why wouldn't I?... I mean, my God, I'd be some sort of self-hater."

He also took issue with Jay saying he had no choice in reclaiming The Tonight Show, because N-B-C wouldn't let him out of his contract. "Which...you know how multi-millionaires are always being forced to do things they don't want to do. It's frustrating."

Richter, who is still under contract with N-B-C, said it's a distinct possibility that he'll be joining Conan on his rumored tour.
