While you were sleeping, more women were claiming they”ve slept with Sandra Bullock’s (hopefully soon-to-be ex) husband Jesse James, and although his mistress count hasn”t reached a Tiger-level of absurdity, things don”t look good for the “Vanilla Gorilla.” First, the overly tattooed Michelle “Bombshell” McGee spoke about their 11-month affair and the world saw her dressed in full-on Nazi regalia, then blond stripper Melissa Smith told Star magazine typically classy Jesse contacted her via MySpace to kick off their two-year affair. Now photographer Brigitte Daguerre claims she also had sex with Jesse four times and saved all 195 of his texts as proof. Rumors have surfaced that Sandra was interviewing divorce lawyers, but how many women will it take for her to dump the bad boy for good?

Beck responded on his show by donning 3-D glasses and calling the most successful film of all time “a Smurf-murdering movie.” Round one goes to Jimmy. And Akon has pissed off an entire country”the singer is banned from Sri Lanka after starring in a too-sexy music video (appropriately called “Sexy Bitch”) that featured a Buddha statue.
Don”t tell Angie: Brad Pitt said he’s growing his scraggly beard out of “boredom.” Someone get that man a film role, or even a seventh kid.

The polarizing Katherine Heigl is probably the first cast member to exit Grey’s Anatomy not on the heels of controversy. She says she’s leaving to focus on her new baby. Emma Thompson brought a hot date to the premiere of her Nanny McPhee sequel”a very well-behaved pig who trudged along the red carpet, hopefully far from the prying eyes of PETA.

Dennis Hopper is still trying desperately to end his 14-year marriage, and his lawyer said the Easy Rider star, who is down to 100 pounds and had to stop undergoing chemotherapy for prostate cancer, is too ill to be questioned by attorneys. Naomi Campbell won”t be outdone by anyone”the feisty supermodel is turning 40 in May, and her billionaire boyfriend (who some call “The Donald Trump of Moscow” minus the hair) plans on throwing her a lavish party, surely stuffed wall-to-wall with celebrities and abused underlings. Lindsay Lohan‘s recent night out ended with her tripping and falling into a cactus, and the boozy star is blaming the paparazzi for pushing her.
