Sandra Bullock talks divorce

It’s been three years since Sandra Bullock split from Jesse James, but she has no desire to go backward and examine what happened, especially not publicly.

Days after Bullock won the Best Actress Oscar for The Blind Side, tabloids reported James had cheated on her. She reacted swiftly, by going under the radar and filing for divorce.

Now she tells Vogue, “We’re all where we’re supposed to be” and “I’m grateful that I’m here, blessed to have what I have.”

What Bullock has is a son, Louis, adopted in January 2010.

Cold as ice

Prince Harry may need to take his next vacation in South Florida. The royal spent the night in a giant freezer to simulate the conditions he will face when he treks to the South Pole in November.

The 29-year-old, who will race with a team of injured British service people against groups from the Commonwealth and the U.S. (including actors Alexander Skarsgard and Dominic West), spent about 20 hours in a cold chamber where he was subjected to temperatures of -31 Fahrenheit, with wind speeds of 45 miles per hour.

Harry also tested the clothing he will wear on the 200-mile expedition and learned how to avoid frostbite.

Maine problems

Oklahoma City prosecutors have filed felony charges against rapper Mack Maine following an alleged altercation with two women aboard a tour bus.

Maine, 33, whose real name is Jermaine Anthony Preyan, was charged with aggravated assault and battery and sexual battery, according to court records.

Preyan invited two women on to a tour bus on Aug. 22, an affidavit said, and grabbed one woman’s right breast. It also says he held the door shut when the women tried to leave and allegedly punched the second woman in the face as she walked down the steps, “breaking her jaw and knocking her down.”

Murder for hire

The front man of the Grammy-nominated metal band As I Lay Dying will stand trial on a charge of trying to hire someone to kill his estranged wife, a judge in San Diego ruled.

The decision came after a preliminary hearing for Timothy Lambesis that featured testimony by prosecution witnesses, including an undercover officer who said he posed as a hitman and was told by the singer he wanted his wife Meggan Lambesis “gone.” The couple had just separated and were fighting over their three adopted children and finances.

Vegas, baby
