April 26, 2010— -- It seems everyone wants to say they're sorry to Sandra Bullock.
Melissa Smith, one of the women who reportedly had an affair with the Oscar-winning actress' husband, Jesse James, faxed a letter of apology to Bullock Sunday, according to TMZ.com. Her apology followed that of Michelle "Bombshell" McGee, the first woman to claim she slept with James.
"I felt I needed to reach out to you and tell you how deeply sorry I am for everything that you've been through," Smith wrote. "I am sorry for any hurt or pain that I have caused you. My actions of engaging with a married man are unforgivable. I never meant you any harm."
Smith added, "I compromised my beliefs on several occasions and as a result will never forgive myself," before concluding, "Please contact me if you wish to discuss on the phone or in person."
It's unlikely that Bullock will pick up the phone. Save for a statement in which she said she never filmed a sex tape with James, the actress has avoided saying anything about his sex scandal. But she hinted at her feelings when she stepped out without her wedding ring two weeks ago. Photos acquired by "Entertainment Tonight" showed Bullock walking with her dog and a friend, sans her vintage platinum wedding band with interwoven diamonds.
While Bullock has been staying off the public stage, the women romantically linked to James appear to be relishing their time in the spotlight.
According to TMZ.com, McGee is in the running to host an in-development reality show about philandering famous spouses, "Celebrity Cheaters." Her potential co-host? Jamie Jungers, one of Tiger Woods' alleged mistresses.
McGee tried to defend her reputation days after issuing an apology to Bullock.
"I am not a homewrecker," she told E! Online's "Daily 10." "I don't believe I destroyed their marriage. Jesse destroyed his marriage. My message to Jesse would be, 'If you were honest to me up front ... we wouldn't be in this situation.'"
"It's hard to be the most-hated person in America," she added. "It's easy to target someone who looks different."
Earlier this month, McGee issued her first public apology to Bullock.
"I feel bad for Sandra," the heavily tattooed model and stripper said on Australia's "Today Tonight" on April 12. "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."Gesine Bullock-Prado and Sandra Bullock in 2005.
