Report: Sandra Bullock's back in town, but not back home

March 24, 2010 | 10:53 am

Bullock on stage Sandra Bullock arrived in Southern California on Tuesday night from her Austin, Texas, hideaway, an insider tells Fox411 exclusively, and though she's not headed back to the O.C. place just yet, "she doesn't want to jump into divorce -- she thought she had her soul mate" in husband Jesse James.

"She's staying in her own place separate from him in California," the source said, noting that Bullock is sorting things out step by step. "She still wants space, and she's very focused." 

Having seen Sandy in action after the Academy Awards on March 7, James hovering nearby, the Ministry does not doubt the "very focused" part one bit. Others apparently noticed that focus as well.

Bullock's still working and "plans to take meetings again soon," the source said.
