Jesse speaks to “Nightline”—to air next Tuesday May 25 on ABC at 11:35 pm.

“I took a pretty amazing life and marriage and threw it away.” That’s what Jesse James is going to admit on national television next week, according to a preview clip of the show available on the ABC web site.

In the first interview since reports of his sordid and extensive affairs surfaced in March, Jesse answers no-holds-barred questions about his conduct during his marriage to Oscar-winning wife Sandra Bullock.

When asked by Mabrey if he cheated on Sandra, he responds with a resounding “Yep.”

Unfortunately, the clip does not show many of his answers to the tough questions about Sandra, the mistresses, and the baby—we’ll all have to wait until May 25 for that—but it does show him breaking down. At one point she says to him point-blank, “This was a woman who stood on stage and told the world, ‘I never knew what it was like for someone to have my back until you.'” His reaction is to tear up and leave the interview, at least momentarily.

Jesse calls himself “the most hated man in the world.” What do you think—is he the most hated man in the world?
