Whoopi Goldberg Understands Why Jesse James Cheats

Whoopi Goldberg has asked media to 'stop judging James until they've heard the full story from the man himself', admitting that she understands why he cheated since she used to do the same thing.

Whoopi Goldberg has come to the defense of Sandra Bullock's embattled husband Jesse James as he fights allegations of infidelity, insisting she can understand why he would cheat - because she "screwed around" during her three marriages. Bullock walked out on James in early March after the TV mechanic was reported to have had an 11-month affair with tattoo model Michelle McGee in 2009.

Two other women have since come forward with similar claims, while a fourth mistress is also alleged to have been involved with James while he was married to the actress. But Goldberg has called on critics to stop judging James until they've heard the full story from the man himself - because tabloid claims are not always so straight-forward.

And the "Ghost" star admits she could see why a spouse would cheat - just like she did when she was a married woman. She confesses, "I did it (cheated) five or six times... Yes, I screwed around while I was married, yeah. I made mistakes too. It happens sometimes."

"Maybe he was trying to find something different too. I'm not excusing what I'm doing as, 'Hey, maybe there's something else to look at here' as opposed to just saying, 'Hey, he's a bonehead.' Maybe he just wanted something wonderful in his life (married a star) and couldn't deal with it. It's just a possibility, I know it's crazy."

Goldberg split from first husband Alvin Martin in 1979 after five years of marriage and went on to marry David Claessen in 1986. That relationship lasted two years and she later wed Lyle Trachtenberg in 1994, before the pair divorced just a year later.

    Wow- Why do so many people who read gossip columns use such vulgar and crude language. Whore is a hateful word. How dare you use it so lightly. You people are scary to me. You turn my stomach.

    Isn't it funny the way people defend bad behaviour by saying I do it too. Well guess what Whoopie , your a whore too. It seems as though you are alone also.That's what happens to whores, used and left behind.

    I think Whoopie is missing the point. The media has been bashing James not only because he cheated, but because how he cheated and how badly he humiliated his wife in public. It seems like she's defending herself.
