Now that Michelle 'Bombshell' Mcgee has collected $30,000 for discussing her affair with Jesse James and photos of her posing in Nazi regalia have surfaced, those close to the tattoo model are speaking out in her defense.
Michelle's best friend and strip club coworker, Mary Gusman, tells Radaronline.com that Michelle felt betrayed by Jesse.
"Jesse James did kind of deceive her because she really honestly was under the impression that he and his wife were living in different houses," Mary said. "It's really true that she believed him and his wife were going separate directions."
Mary also gave her thoughts on Jesse and Michelle's relationship.
"I think initially it's 'Oh my gosh, it's Jesse James' and then he was really relatable," she said. "They really had a connection and they could talk. She could really talk to him and he could talk to her, as far as she told me. It was a really nice situation."
Michelle's boss and one of the owners of Pure Platinum Strip Club, Eric Von Sydow, also weighed in on her character--and branded her the new Elvira.
"Michelle's an enigma," Eric told Radar. "There's a lot more going on than meets the eye. You can look at it, try to size her up and you think you know what she's about - then she just goes deeper and deeper and deeper. She's the 2010 Elvira."
He said that Michelle, whose stripper name and son's name are both Avery, is good at what she does.
"Michelle 'Bombshell' she is our rock star, she is our queen of the damned," he said. "She is the one who brings the wild side, the pure sensuality to the thing. If you wanted to get dominated out there she's the girl for the job."
Meanwhile Jesse James' friends have nothing good to say about his behavior.
"He really (bleeped) up this time and he knows it," one of his friends told Radar. "What a stupid stupid thing to do, mess around on Sandy with a girl like that? She is nothing but a tramp. Disgusting."
The friend thinks there's no chance Sandra will forgive Jesse.
"I saw him earlier today and he's real quiet, he's really down," he said. "He knows that he's really (bleeped) up and he wants to try and reverse the damage but thinks he can't. Sandy isn't the kind of girl that's just going to take this sort of treatment. Looks like the end of marriage number three for Jesse, and that's really sad."
For her part, Jesse's ex-wife Janine Lindemulder, porn star and mother of his 5-year-old daughter, whom Sandra has fought for custody, is glad she has moved on.
"Thank God For My Faithful Hubby!!" Janine tweeted.
