April 13, 2010— -- Jesse James is not the only one apologizing to Sandra Bullock.

Michelle "Bombshell" McGee, James' alleged mistress, issued her own apology to the actress via Australian television.

"I feel bad for Sandra," the heavily tattooed model and stripper said on Australia's "Today Tonight" Monday. "I know what she's going through. She must be hurt, devastated, upset, embarrassed."

Asked what she'd say to Bullock, McGee replied, "I want to give her a heartfelt apology. Sandra, I'm sorry. I'm sorry for your embarrassment. I'm sorry all of this is public."

McGee also showed the Australian interviewer texts she said Jesse James sent her. The last one, she said, came just days after James teared up while his wife was accepting her best actress Oscar. It read, "I'm just sitting here thinking of you. How are you?"

McGee, who said she was misled to believe that James and Bullock were separated, realized then that he had been lying.

"This is not someone -- 'I got back with my wife, I'm working things out now,'" she said. "This is someone -- 'I'm with my wife and I'm doing this on the side.' And that's when I was like, 'Enough.'"

Bullock also spoke out recently about the sex scandal.

After weeks of keeping mum in the face of damaging allegations about James and their marriage, Bullock finally broke her silence, not to discuss her marriage but to deny reports of the existence of a sex tape.

Why that and why now?

"This one involved her," E! executive news editor Ken Baker said.

This is, after all, a woman known for her chasteness on screen. She didn't perform her first nude scene until last year, when at the age of 44, she appeared naked, except for a strategically placed loofah, in her romantic comedy hit "The Proposal."
