Oh, Whoopi. Whoopi, Whoopi, Whoopi. The outspoken actress discussed Jesse James‘ wanton ways on The View this morning. And unlike most daytime TV hosts, she wasn’t out to crucify the fetish-model enthusiast. “I know it’s really wrong to say…but it’s nobody’s fault,” she told her co-hosts. “Maybe he was looking for something different…hey, I did it five or six times. Yes, I screwed around. Yes, while I was married. I made those mistakes, too, yeah.” She can even identity with the Dead Man‘s fondness for tattoos. “I have seven…wouldn’t you like to know where!”
“I’m not excusing,” she clarified. “[But] as opposed to saying ‘he’s a bonehead,’ maybe he wanted something wonderful in his life but couldn’t deal with it. That’s awfully gracious of Ms. Goldberg, but if the rumors about James sex tapes are true—some gossipmongers say they involve wife Sandra Bullock, some say they star other women, all say they involve Nazi paraphernalia—Whoopi might wish she’d chosen a better phrase than “something wonderful.” Unless she’s into fascist-themed scatplay, too (and if you are, Whoopi…please keep it to yourself).
