Bombshell McGee's dad knew about Jesse James
Denny McGee, father of Michelle "Bombshell" McGee, knew his daughter was involved with Jesse James -- he even asked her if her new guy pal was married to Sandra Bullock. Her answer fell along the lines of "not exactly."
"She told me that she was going out with Jesse James," said Denny, a barber in Ohio who gets our vote as least likely to be linked to a scandal. "And I'm like, 'Jesse James the cowboy's been dead for 100 years.' And she said, 'No, Dad, Jesse James the motorcycle guy.' "
When he asked if James was married to Bullock, Denny said, Michelle told him "they were, but they have a thing now where they kind of live apart and she's on the scene for movies."
Michelle decided to tell (er, sell?) her story after seeing James and Bullock together ...
He says he talks to her several times a day -- the 32-year-old mother of two is in seclusion in the San Diego area -- and is a little concerned about what he's reading on the Internet about her."It's hard to read stuff about your daughter, the things people are saying about her," he said.
Note to Denny: Don't look for your daughter on Twitter, or visit her online place of business. The Bombshell's self-representation on the Internet is a bit harsh as well.
