Whoopi Goldberg Defends Jesse James: It's Nobody's Fault

On yesterday’s “Hot Topics” segment on The View, the women discussed Jesse James. And Whoopi Goldberg raised some eyebrows by more or less siding with James!

She talked about his multiple affairs, saying, "It's nobody's fault. Maybe he was looking for something different.”

Jesse James Has a Lot of Sex Tapes

After that, Goldberg dropped a bombshell of her own, admitting to cheating on her husband while she was married! "Hey, listen, I did it five or six times," she said. "Yes, I screwed around. Yes, while I was married. I made those mistakes, too, yeah. It happens sometimes. It happens...Maybe he was trying to find something too, but couldn't handle it."

After getting backlash from her co-hosts, Whoopi then backtracked on her statement, saying, “I’m not excusing. What I’m doing is saying, ‘Hey, maybe there’s something else to look at over here.’ As opposed to just saying he’s a bonehead. Maybe he wanted something wonderful in his life and couldn’t deal with it.”

Report: Jesse James Won't Get Any of Sandra's Money

We still think there’s no excuse to cheat on your wife! If he was that unhappy in his marriage, he should have been man enough to tell Sandra he wanted a divorce. It would have saved her a lot of heartache in the long run.

What do you think of Whoopi’s statement on Jesse?
