His gorgeous wife is MIA. His adorable dog is missing, too.
It's only Thursday, but it's about time Jesse James had an about-face.
A day after reports of infidelity first surfaced, the Monster Garage host is already pointing fingers...at himself.
"There is only one person to blame for this whole situation, and that is me," James says in a public apology obtained by E! News. "It's because of my poor judgment that I deserve every bad thing that is coming my way."
And he's especially sorry when it comes to wife Sandra Bullock and his children.
"This has caused my wife and kids pain and embarrassment beyond comprehension and I am extremely saddened to have brought this on them," he says. "I am truly very sorry for the grief I have caused them. I hope one day they can find it in their hearts to forgive me."
James makes no mention of Michelle "Bombshell" McGee or any specific crimes against his family. And he's not planning on doing so.
"The vast majority of the allegations reported are untrue and unfounded. Beyond that, I will not dignify these private matters with any further public comment."
