Sandra Bullock meets with her stepdaughter for lunch, avoids paparazzi for days

82nd Annual Oscar Nominee Luncheon

Radar Online has information about Sandra Bullock’s whereabouts that shows that she’s been able to hide from the paparazzi despite being the most in-demand star of the moment. Sandra was staying at the posh Beverly Hills Hotel, but took pains to avoid photographers. One paparazzo called her to a “celebrity Houdini.” She was known to have been at the hotel earlier in the week, although her current location is unknown. I think it’s somewhat safe to assume that all the paparazzi photos we’ve seen of Sandra since the scandal have been carefully orchestrated. I have a lot of respect for the way she’s handled this whole scandal. Even the photos we’ve seen of her have probably been pre-approved. I would have liked to have heard her condemn her husband’s behavior, but that’s just the part of me that’s out for revenge. She was classy yet open about it and I understand why handled it the way she did. She is one smart, and tough, cookie. Here’s the report from Radar:

Several sources told that Bullock spent days at the hotel, mostly staying out of sight and deliberately avoiding the paparazzi who are so desperate to photograph her in the wake of Jesse James’ cheating confessions on ABC’s Nightline.

“She’s become the greatest celebrity Houdini,” one photographer told “She can escape from any situation – but she does it without being seen.”

There have been few photos of the Oscar-winning star since the revelation of James’ multiple affairs. And her public statements about her husband have been kind considering what he did to her. She filed for divorce in Texas.

The Beverly Hills hotel is exceptional at protecting the privacy of its guests, making it the bane of L.A.’s snap-hungry paparazzi. That protection coupled with the hotel’s luxury and private bungalows, make it an excellent choice for a celebrity like Bullock.

Her movements have been so secretive that all the paparazzi know for certain is she was there earlier in the week but they quickly lost her trail.

“She was there,” one source told “But who knows, tomorrow she could turn up in New Orleans.”

Sandra could have been staying there in order to spend some quiet time with her stepchildren, who are still living with their dad, Jesse James. Star Magazine reports that she had lunch at the hotel with little Sunny, 6, on May 23. Their story about how Sandra brought gifts for Sunny is really sweet and tugs at my heart. They write “The gals, dressed alike in black-and-white outfits, laughed, hugged and played with a hot pink Etch A Sketch during the meal. At one point, Sunny even put her headband on her smiling stepmother!

I just imagine Sandra having to give up a life with a little girl she helped raise and only getting a visit or two with her in the next few months. Jesse didn’t just betray Sandra by stepping out on her, he really denied his kids a life with the woman who had planned to be there for them as they grew up. He should be crying for Sunny over that, not for the fact that she’s the same age he was when he was allegedly abused. It’s all about Jesse, though, and how he’s supposedly hurting while he hurts everyone around him with his selfishness.

    Glad they got their girly time but, yeah, they all got ripped off due to JJ’s narcissism, smh.

  2. Brittney says:

    She’s wonderful.
    And she’s proof that (most of) the celebrities who complain about their privacy being invaded by paparazzi on a daily basis could actually *do* something to stop it.

  3. YT says:

    Jessie really did a great job of destroying everyone’s lives. Sandra is probably seeing the kids more than the tabloids know. Good for her for keeping a low profile and not dragging this through the media. We’re not even getting daily updates from “sources”.

  4. Kim says:

    To me the saddest part of this whole story is the fact that the kids will suffer the most by losing their step mother and not being able to see her or their baby brother as often. I blame Jesse for cheating AND Sandra who i 100% think knew he was cheating but didnt want to jeopordize the adoption (its way harder to adopt when not married). If she was upfront with herself she could have divorced Jesse silently w/out it being the media hoppla it is now that the kids have been dragged into. It would have been easier on the kids to not have to go thru this so publicly. Dont get me worng Jesse is the culprit here and the one who cheated so i blame him 90% but Sandra does have to take some responsibility for not following thru with what she knew was true (him cheating on her) and leaving him.

  5. bellaluna says:

    Good on Sandra for keeping her time with Sunny as private as possible. I hope she’s able to continue her relationships with all three of her step-children, and I hope they develop a wonderful relationship with little Louis.

    @ Kim:

    I doubt you’ve ever had someone you love deceive you so thoroughly. It is entirely possible (especially since Sandra’s work required her to be away for extended periods of time) for a spouse to keep secrets of this magnitude. I hope you never experience that deceit by a loved one. I have, and it’s devastating.

  6. Sudini says:

    @Kim – ….huh? WHY are there always people out there who insist on saying “she must have known!” whenever a guy cheats?? How do you know she knew? That’s total and complete speculation at best.

    100% of the blame goes to Jesse for destroying this family. Period. He made the decision over and over and over again to lie and cheat. Period.

  7. chunkstyle says:

    Wow, the sisters look so much alike in that photo! Glad she is still doing right by them, I’m sure they need someone as awesome as her in their life right now.

  8. Jeri says:

    Kaiser, CB – Thanks for all the new posts. A lot of bloggers have taken off & put out prepared (as opposed to new) posts for the Holiday weekend. THANK YOU for working today!

  9. Ursaline says:

    She’s got to be hiring some ex-CIA or something. They are really impressive.

  10. Feebee says:

    Wow, Sunny looks so much like her dad in the photo with her sister. Might be the expression.

    What a shame Jesse (and guys like him) never think about the collateral damage of cheating.

    Boo hoo to his allegations of abuse. While if true, it’s horrible, it’s not relevant and simply sounds like an excuse and ‘poor me, my dad hit me when I was a kid so I screwed around when I was married and ripped my six year old’s world apart’.

  11. Celebitchy says:

    @Jeri – thank you! Also Kaiser deserves more thanks because she was working hard as always while I was slacking off.

  12. Jeri says:

    Gary Coleman died. His wife had life support disconnected @ 12:05 MST.

  13. dre says:

    Im sorry, but the pic with the two sisters look like 2 homeless children!!!
    I wouldnt let my kids out of the house looking like that and I live below the poverty level. Seriously, come on!

  14. Isla says:

    Beautiful story but fake because Sunny and Jesse were not in Los Angeles, monday.

  15. Kim says:

    Jesse admitted on Nightline that Sandra asked him about affairs in the past and he lied.

  16. fugly says:

    poor kid (sunny)look waayyyyyy too much like pop. hope she grows out of it.

  17. DoMaJoReMc says:

    @ Kim:
    I’ll bet the questions stemmed from the sexual harassment suit brought against him by a former female employee.

  18. original kate says:

    “its way harder to adopt when not married.”

    kim, maybe for us little people, but not when you are a celeb. just ask madonna, rosie, meg ryan, mia farrow, sheryl crow, angelina…

    to me the saddest part is that jesse is a self- centered baby who cared more about his dick than he did about his family.

  19. I have to say Sandra has never looked better than since this whole scandal started……….looking good. Done a lot for her.

  20. Raven says:

    First off Kim she did not need him to adopt she could have went thought the prose by herself like she doing know. Second off do you know Sandra Bullock are you a family friend can you read minds so how do you know that she know he was cheating on her ? Are you saying that anyone who ever been cheated on known beforehand? I think not people are taken by surprise and betrayed by people they love all the time

  21. Morgs says:

    They are so gonna get back together on the DL.

  22. Tina says:

    I’m glad Sandra gets to continue having a relationship with the children she helped Jesse raise for so many years. I feel horrible for the children that are involved in this.

    @Kim–I absolutely cringed when I read your post. I have an ex-husband that betrayed me. We had our struggles just like any normal relationship, but we were also best friends and had a wonderful relationship in the beginning. Then a bomb was dropped on me 6 years into the marriage. I found out that because of his ADHD, he was a mastermind at leading a double life. I eventually found out he not only had affairs, but long term relationships with multiple women without me having even the faintest clue. He was so good, that none of the other women even knew about each other…and there were FOURTEEN of them (at least). There were no warning signs until the very end, about 3 months prior to the end of the marriage is when I started to become suspicious. Just because Sandra was suspicious of JJ (as I was suspicious of my ex-husb)…you don’t just pick up and leave the SECOND you suspect them…you can’t just throw away an entire marriage until you know for sure that they are being unfaithful beyond a shadow of a doubt. I was completely taken back at how naive you are to even cast any shadow of blame on Sandra or any person that is cheated on. You don’t suspect someone and just walk away. There’s so much more to it. I hope it never happens to you, I don’t think you’d be able to handle something so painful and tragic. You sound like you walk away from things easily and have trust issues.

  23. Jennifer says:

    @Morgs – I honestly don’t believe that. The way that Ms. Bullock has handled the whole situation so far is proof-positive that she does not need him, especially if he is going to be a lying cheating bastard.

    I am so glad that she is still seeing the children even when the marriage is done and over with. She really does love them and it shows how great of a mother she will be to her new baby.

    I always like Sandra Bullock before, but I love her after everything that has happened and seeing how she has handled it!

  24. poopie says:

    if he’s going to list all of the ‘poor me’s’ as excuses for his being a scumbag, don’t forget to list ” because my voice sounds like a girly girl”

  25. Kelaa Khaa says:

    I think SB and JJ will get back together as well, for the sake of the kids. I wonder if they make those electronic bracelets for the part of JJ’s anatomy that has an affinity to tattooed skanks so sb could know where it was hanging out at all times.

  26. Whitey Fisk says:

    @ original kate:
    “self- centered baby who cared more about his dick than he did about his family” – so true. One you have kids, you don’t just cheat on your husband/wife, you cheat on your children. You make a decision that your temporary sexual gratification is worth the inevitable pain your child will experience. It boggles my mind that anyone with children ever cheats.

  27. gg says:

    I don’t think at all that Sandra knew he was cheating on her. She asked him, he lied, and probably believed him.

    I also don’t think she will get back with him romantically. She respects herself. Would YOU allow that disease-ridden, tattoed skank-boning thing inside you ever again? I sure wouldn’t!

    The CDC needs to register it like a virus at this point. With a tattoo! LOL: WARNING – This wee-wee is CONTAMINATED! DO NOT BONE!

    How embarrassing for the girls to know about slime dad. Don’t mess with them!
