With everyone talking about Jesse James' Nightline interview, which aired on ABC last week, it begs the question: can his reputation and image be saved? Some speculate that James did the interview in order to drum up some public sympathy after he revealed that he cheated on America's Sweetheart Sandra Bullock, but sources tell People that he felt he needed to reveal his story to the public to clear his name. "He is sick of people thinking of him as a monster," says the source, who added that friends and employees at James's Long Beach, California bike shop, West Coast Choppers, "are impressed [by] how Jesse handled the interview." Loyal employees like their benefits and paychecks, no doubt.
Does James, 41, seem more humanized now that he has confessed his affairs and that he has revealed his abuse at the hands of his father?
