In this sneak peek of American Chopper, former Monster Garage Jesse James goes head to head with Paul Teutul and Paul Teutul, Jr., to build a new bike.
True to form, he's also got a lot to say about his personal life.
"I became a big shot and married some Hollywood actress and didn't talk to anybody anymore, so I feel bad," James says at the beginning of the episode.
His reference to America’s Sweetheart Sandra Bullock, who he cheated on rampantly, as “some Hollywood actress” is not likely to endear him to viewers.
As for why he came back to reality TV?
"I feel obligated to reconnect with all these people and show 'em that I'm still the same fabricator motorcycle guy. I'm not what I became," says James.
It’s not clear if James is blaming Bullock for “what he became,” but given the reasons for their marriage imploding, it's hard not to read into it somewhat.
After divorcing Bullock, he got engaged to Kat Von D, only to have that fall apart as well after he reportedly cheated on Kat 19 times (according to her).
James goes on to say that his bikes are "built to be punished." It seems that could also apply to any woman crazy enough to enter a relationship with him.
