Jesse James has been working his butt off to get back into the good graces of ex-wife Sandra Bullock – and whatever he’s doing might actually be working! We spoke to two experts who tell us they trust Sandra’s judgment, and that a reconciliation would be great for their kids!
The happiest (and luckiest) moment of Jesse James‘ life would be the day his ex-wife, Sandra Bullock, took him back. Guess what, BFFs? That day might come sooner than later: PopEater’s Rob Shuter says thatJesse is finally starting to win Sandra’s heart again! But is it smart for her to take him back?
We think Sandra should steer clear of Jesse and his cheating ways, but two relationship experts tell us that a second chance would be a good move for the exes. “With all of the things that connect people, it doesn’t make sense to break up solely over infidelity,” relationship expert and psychiatrist Dr. Keith Ablow tells HollywoodLife.com. “When somebody strays for a singular reason, I don’t see that one reason as being enough to tear your fortune and your family apart and have kids with two bedrooms.”
Jesse was just awarded physical custody of his 6-year-old daughter Sunny, whose mother is porn star Janine Lindemulder. However, Sunny has been very close to Sandra since her birth — the Oscar-winning actress basically raised her – which, to one expert, is enough of a reason for Sandra to take Jesse back.
“Jesse gave Sandra an entire life, a family, all she once wanted.There’s a huge foundation there and many enticing reasons to get back together,” radio host Cooper Lawrence tells us. “Frankly those kids need her! She’s the only stable factor in their lives, considering who their parents are. She’s potentially the only thing that will keep Sunny off of stripper poles.”
Like Dr. Ablow, Cooper believes that cheating isn’t the only reason someone walks away from a marriage. “Infidelity is just a symptom of a larger problem, and it stems from one of two things: either there is an issue you are afraid to confront with your partner, and go elsewhere for comfort, or you DO address the issue and your partner says, ‘Tough sh*t, this is who I am.””
Either way, we just want Sandra to be happy…we’re not entirely sure if Jesse can provide the kind of happiness she needs after bringing her so much pain.
