Mistress #2 Writes to Sandra

I don’t know what’s worse—Jesse James repeatedly lying and cheating on his wife Sandra Bullock, or one of Jesse’s mistresses writing a letter to Sandra.

TMZ has obtained a copy of the letter that Melissa Smith, Jesse’s mistress #2, faxed to Sandra’s agent on Sunday.

She apologized and wrote, “I felt I needed to reach out to you and tell you how deeply sorry I am for everything that you’ve been through.” Other highlights of the letter include:

“I am sorry for any hurt or pain that I have caused you. My actions of engaging with a married man are unforgivable.”

“I compromised my beliefs on several occasions and as a result will never forgive myself.”

“Please contact me if you wish to discuss on the phone or in person.”


Yes, Melissa, I’m sure Sandra is dying to fax or write you back so you could become penpals and have girly lunches together.

Kim Kardashian plane story just plain stinks



According to the National Enquirer, “Kim Kardashian caused a big stink when she boarded a flight at LAX carrying a just-purchased giant burrito that smelled… as odiferous as a Mexican bean factory!”

The supermarket tabloid claims, “Passengers gagged, and a guy several rows back barked at a stewardess: ‘What’s that putrid smell?’” 

Kardashian, reports the weekly rag, ‘fessed up, “It’s my burrito! I was starving and had to have something to eat. But you’re right, it smells terrible,” and had a flight attendant dispose of it.

After the burrito was tossed, the Enquirer says, “Kim’s fellow fliers thanked here, quickly cranked their air ducts on full blast… and were finally breathin’ easy a half hour later.”

Gossip Cop initially thought this story smelled bad since it neglected to mention when this allegedly occurred or where the flight was headed.

And then Kardashian herself noted the article didn’t amount to a hill of beans.

The “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star wrote on her blog, “First of all, I absolutely hate burritos! Secondly, I have never brought Mexican food on a plane. This never happened and these quotes made me laugh so much… This is just hysterical!”

Just another stinker from the Enquirer.

Conan Unleashes on Jay Leno

Three months after his last turn as host of “The Tonight Show,” Conan O’Brien says he wouldn’t have forced out another host, as he claims Jay Leno did.

O’Brien gives his first on-the-record comments about the late-night shake-up in a “60 Minutes” interview scheduled to air Sunday.

“He went and took that show back and I think in a similar situation, if roles had been reversed, I know — I know me, I wouldn’t have done that,” O’Brien says in an excerpt released by CBS.

When asked what he would have done instead, O’Brien says, “Done something else, go someplace else. I mean, that’s just me.”

On why he left NBC instead of moving his show to midnight as the network suggested, O’Brien explains that he thought the relationship was “going be toxic and maybe we just need to go our separate ways. That’s really how it felt to me… and I started to feel that I’m not sure these people even really want me here… .I can’t do it [anymore].”

So will you be tuning in on Sunday to watch O’Brien blast Leno?

Site’s “Proof” That Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow Aren’t Friends Lacks… Proof


HollywoodLife has a problem.

When two big stars like Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow are in the same room and the site has nothing worthwhile to say about them, it needs an angle — and quick.

Even better is if that “angle” boils down to a kindergarten-level misunderstanding of friendship!

That’s how we wind up with today’s train wreck, “EXCLUSIVE! Proof that Madonna & Gwyneth Paltrow’s Friendship Has Fizzled! PLUS Gwyneth Has A New BFF!”

Oh, boy! What did HollywoodLife’s spies discover about the “former besties” during nap time – er, last night’s “Bent On Learning” event in New York?

“Madge & Gwynnie arrived to the benefit separately,” reports the site. What’s more, Madonna had the audacity to come instead with her daughter!

(Wait, so the first bit of “proof” that Madonna is on the outs with Paltrow is that she attended a charity dinner with her kid?)

Later, the duo reportedly posed for a photo together, but according to a HollywoodLife source it was only “to show good face.”

(For those keeping score, further “proof” that Madonna and Paltrow aren’t friends is to witness a demonstration of friendliness but insist it’s evidence of hate.)

Then the article says the two “were seated at the same table for dinner but hardly spoke,” which the site explains is “very different from the days when they were inseparable at parties.” What changed? HollywoodLife says Paltrow had a “new BFF at her side” in actress Melissa George. The two were witnessed “chatting up the night and laughing” while sipping wine.

(Paltrow sat next to a third person and had a nice time talking, “proof” that she and Madonna are through as pals.)

Oh, and please ignore the inconvenient fact that the stars, allegedly locked in a bitter feud, sat at the same table.


When the crack team at HollywoodLife spends this much time breathing life into nonsense, imagine what the site could do with a real story!

For the record, Gossip Cop checked with sources who assured us Madonna and Paltrow are still good friends, and that most of what HollywoodLife said — sitting together, posing together — is actually proof.

George Clooney Bombs in Italy


Talk about a blast from the past.

Officials discovered hundreds of pounds of World War II era explosives in the lake next to George Clooney’s Italian villa today.

Roughly 500 pounds of hand grenades, mortars and aircraft bombs were lifted out of Lake Como, right next to the actor’s mansion.

Clooney was characteristically humorous in response.

“This is not the first bomb I’ve experienced,” says the star of Solaris.

REPORT: Tito Ortiz and Jenna Jameson Withdraw Allegations

Tito Ortiz and Jenna Jameson have withdrawn the domestic violence allegations that led to Ortiz’s arrest last week, according to a report.

“What actually happened has now been dramatically distorted and misinterpreted and remarks that both Tito and I made after the police arrived reflect the state of shock we were both in,” Jameson told TMZ.

Meanwhile, Ortiz is reportedly softening his position that Jameson is an OxyContin addict. The mixed martial artist’s lawyer, Chip Matthews, tells the site the incident was “a big misunderstanding.”

Interestingly, Ortiz stands to lose about $15 million if convicted on domestic violence charges.

What do YOU think?

Gossip Cop will monitor the story.

Taylor Swift Not Secretly Dating John Mayer


Like a gerbil that hasn’t learned to avoid the electrified pellet, Star magazine keeps making ridiculous Taylor Swift claims despite disastrous results.

Last month, the mag alleged Swift was back with Taylor Lautner.

She wasn’t, and Gossip Cop busted it.

Before that, Star claimed Swift might play Lautner’s on-screen girlfriend. That was wrong, too. So was a story about the duo disturbing hotel guests with music lessons.

Now it appears the tabloid has tired of Swift-Lautner drivel… so it’s moved on to Swift and someone else.

The country cutie is “still having a love affair with notorious ladies’ man John Mayer,” claims Star.

“Still”? Um, Swift was never in a relationship with Mayer. But let’s see what the tab has to say.

According to a so-called “source,” Swift has been “meeting up all over the country” with Mayer, behind the back of her alleged boyfriend Cory Monteith. “Taylor will drop anything to see [Mayer],” reports the magazine. All he has to do is text her, another “source” claims, and she’ll “come running” “no matter what time it is!”

So let’s get this straight.

Two superstars with fully booked schedules — and whose every move is followed by a voracious press — have been meeting secretly from coast to coast at the drop of a hat?

Forgive us for thinking the whole thing is absurd.

But just in case, we reached out to sources close to Swift, all of whom tell Gossip Cop the story is complete nonsense.

Sherri Shepherd not Secretly Seeing Hill Harper


Are Sherri Shepherd of “The View” and “CSI: NY” star Hill Harper “smitten” and secretly dating?

That’s what In Touch Weekly claims.

According to the mag, it began when Shepherd and Harper taped a “Nightline” segment together in March. Reportedly, Harper reminded Shepherd off-camera that she had once rejected him in the 1990s. A so-called “pal” tells the tab Shepherd didn’t recall the snub, but “apologized and accepted his invitation to dinner, and they hit it off.”

Unfortunately, the In Touch “insider” is outside the loop.

A rep for Harper tells Gossip Cop he and Shepherd are friends but “not dating.”

So while the two are close, the only “secret” here is where In Touch gets its rumors.
