Scoop: Bullock’s marriage called a total sham 

More revelations are emerging about the “bombshell” dropped on Sandra Bullock’s marriage. After tattoo-covered “glamour” model Michelle “Bombshell” McGee came forward to say she had an affair with the Oscar winner’s hubby, Jesse James, a friend of hers told Radar Online that their relationship was far from secret — and she believed the couple’s marriage was a sham.

“She told me that she and Jesse were together. This was around May 2009, or just prior to that,” said the friend, who added the affair lasted nearly a year.

In an apology statement, Jesse said: “There is only one person to blame for this whole situation, and that is me. It’s because of my poor judgment that I deserve everything bad that is coming my way.”

Michelle may have thought she had good reason to be open about the romance. The pal said she “told me that Jesse’s marriage to Sandra Bullock was for publicity, and that’s why he did Donald Trump’s show, ‘Celebrity Apprentice.’ He never called on Sandra for money or influence because their marriage was a sham, she said.”

A long-term affair? Telling his mistress that his marriage is a sham? Sounds like Jesse is taking cues from Tiger Woods’ playbook.

Friends, No Benefits

A U.K. report claims that Kate Winslet’s “amicable” separation from director husband Sam Mendes was actually prompted by his close friendship with actress Rebecca Hall, who starred in one of his films and appeared in his Bridge Project theater shows recently. A Kate insider reportedly told the paper she was distraught that the brainy brunette is “totally Sam’s type.”

However, a source close to the “Revolutionary Road” director said, “Sam and Rebecca are good friends; of course they are.

They have spent the better part of a year working together on the Bridge Project. But to insinuate that there is anything further in the friendship is taking it too far.”

And a source close to Rebecca insisted to the New York Daily News that she “has absolutely nothing to do with their split” and is actually “friends with Kate, too.”

Could it be? A celeb couple’s split that really, truly is amicable and doesn’t involve cheating? Whoa.

Who’s Her Daddy?

One rule of the celebrity gossip world: Once it’s in People magazine, it’s pretty much official. And after months of buzz, the supermarket-checkout staple has confirmed that Padma Lakshmi’s unnamed baby daddy is businessman Adam Dell of the Dell computers family.

The venture capitalist is reportedly haggling with the “Top Chef” host about visitation rights to their infant daughter, Krishna. He wants “more time and involvement with the child,” a source said. “It’s all in negotiations. They are trying to work it out. They are trying to avoid anything messy.”

A Page Six spy recently heard Adam tell friends “how excited he was to raise her, but that Padma wasn’t being entirely accommodating.”

Padma, honey, if he wants to give you a night off to get some sleep once in a while, let him!

Madge’s New Man?

Has Madonna betrayed Jesus? Though she’s been linked to model Jesus Luz for, well, a surprisingly long time, the pop icon recently appeared at an event with a new boy toy on her arm: Adam Senn of “The City,” who is, shockingly, also a model.

“She arrived with Adam from the back and sat in the VIP area,” a gawker relayed to In Touch magazine. “At one point, she got up and started dancing, and he was grabbing her waist and touching her butt. She turned around and gave him a lap dance and he looked like the happiest guy in the world.”

However, the Material Mom was being discreet, sort of: “She made sure no photos were taken.”

Not that we have a double standard when it comes to cheating, but, hey, it’s Madonna. She can make her own rules.
