Whoopi Goldberg joins cheaters club on Jesse James' behalf

April 7, 2010 |  3:27 pm

Whoopi Whoopi Goldberg had Jesse James' back for a few minutes Tuesday on "The View," working the perennially winning arguments "It's nobody's fault" and "I did it too."

Whoopi's admission that she cheated "five or six times" isn't that earth-shattering, given that the third of her marriages ended in divorce 15 years ago, and the American public probably isn't the first to know. And she speaks the truth when she says, "It happens sometimes, it happens." Because it does happen. 

But the part where, while not excusing him, she wants to look around for a deeper explanation beyond just calling James "a bonehead"? This is where we part ways.

Yes, there probably are deeper reasons. Yes, it does happen. But when it happens multiple times, no matter the reason, it's "happening" to a bonehead.

"Maybe he wanted something wonderful in his life," she said, "and couldn't deal with it." 

Nobody's fault.

Everyone else is doing it.
