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."
Meanwhile, Bullock's sister is trying to keep her Oscar-winning sibling from being a paparazzi target. According to People magazine, Gesine Bullock-Prado took to her blog, Confections of a (Closet) Master Baker, to shoot down rumors that Bullock fled to Vermont to spend Easter with her sister. Bullock-Prado said the reports make no sense since she was in Chicago for the holiday.
"So to set the record completely straight, if the post on Easter about gorging my way through Chicago doesn't convince you to my whereabouts and only my whereabouts, then let my reservations on the lovely United Airlines be a true and honest testament to what I ate for Easter dinner and with whom, and it wasn't with my lovely family at some nameless Vermont inn I've never set eyes upon," she wrote.
Bullock's friend George Lopez is also singing the silent star's praises.
"She's a beautiful person, and when she needs friends, of course, I'm going to be there," the comedian said in an interview on E!'s "Daily 10" show April 15. "She knows how much I care about her. And, you know, when times are tough, friends step up."
Bullock herself has only spoken publicly once since reports about James' cheating surfaced last month. At the beginning of April, she broke her silence -- not to discuss her marriage but to deny reports of the existence of a sex tape.
Why comment on that rumor and not the slew of other sex scandal reports?
"This one involved her," E! executive news editor Ken Baker said.
