From Wire Reports

Jesse James is a “a broken man” and is hoping that rehab will help save his marriage to Sandra Bullock, his friend and attorney says.

Allegations of marital infidelity against James and the ensuing media “feeding frenzy” have ruined the biker businessman’s life, Joe Yanny says.

“This whole thing has destroyed Jesse’s entire universe,” Yanny says.

James, 40, checked into a rehabilitation center – reportedly for sex addiction – this week after reports he cheated on Bullock throughout their five-year marriage.

He released a statement saying he had used “poor judgment” and deserved “everything bad that is coming my way.”

Bullock was on a career high that culminated with an Oscar win for “The Blind Side” just before the rumors surfaced.

Really big hits

The Web site for a gay rights campaign that features a declaration of bisexuality by Anna Paquin has received so much traffic that it crashed.

In addition to “True Blood” star Paquin, a video on wegiveadamn.org, launched by Cyndi Lauper’s True Colors Fund, includes appearances by Elton John, Whoopi Goldberg, Jason Mraz and Cynthia Nixon.

Host-al takeovers

“Saturday Night Live” has announced its hosts for the rest of April: Tina Fey, with musical guest Justin Bieber, April 10; Ryan Phillippe, with Ke$ha, on April 17; and Gabourey Sidibe, with MGMT, April 24.
