Didn’t See This Coming

Normally, I reserve news commentary for Sundays, but I just couldn't pass this up. Found the link thru Pink Is The New Blog–thanks Trent!

Sandra Bullock weds mechanicSOLVANG, Calif. (AP) – Actress Sandra Bullock married mechanic and TV personality Jesse James at a ranch near Santa Barbara, according to reports.

Bullock, 40, and James, 35, exchanged vows Saturday in front of several hundred guests at the Folded Hills Ranch in Santa Ynez Valley's wine country.

Guests included actor William Shatner, actresses Jamie Lee Curtis and Regina King, and Metallica lead singer James Hetfield, according to Entertainment Tonight and Us Weekly magazine.

Many in Hollywood have been surprised at the pairing of the tattooed "bad boy" James and the on-screen good girl Bullock. They met in 2003.

It's the first marriage for Miss Congeniality star Bullock, who had been engaged to actor Tate Donovan. She recently played the wife of a district attorney in the film Crash.

James, who has had two previous marriages and three children, appears on the Discovery Channel's Monster Garage.

Now, here's what I don't get, aside from all the questions about how these two worlds ever collided. I do not get how anyone can refer to a man with a multi-million dollar premier business building one-of-a-kind motorcycles as a "mechanic."

That's got to be the single largest understatement coming out of Hollywood this year! Jesse James does some of the most unique work in motorcycle fabrication. He's been featured in every major bike magazine. Monster Garage is not anywhere near being the only TV show he's ever been on–he has a touring schedule that makes me tired just hearing it! The publicity on the marriage makes it sound like Bullock's slumming and marrying some greasemonkey who worked on her expensive-assed car, when that couldn't be further from the truth.

Congratulations to both of them! May they live happily ever after.

And Hollywood Media? Suck my ass, get off your dead rear ends, and do your research before daring to report!
