T.J. Simers of the L.A. TIMES has some fun doublespeak from Jamie McCourt today, as she strikes out to defend her reputation against charges that she cheated on husband Frank and spent company money on a trip to France with her lover.
(Jamie McCourt: No denial that she cheated with Fuller)
“To read everything that’s been said is devastating, and my kids are pretty upset about it,” she says. “I want my kids to look back and say she took the high road. It’s hard, but that’s what I’m going to try and do.”
But in the previous paragraph, Simers writes,
Some of her advisors, who suggest there are things that maybe Frank would not want revealed, have been pushing her to fight back.
So Frank has skeletons too? Wonder where Simers got the idea to write that? Thank goodness Jamie’s taking the high road! Read more…
Finally, we have the big breakthrough in the McCourts divorce case. With Jamie McCourt attempting to get her job as Dodger CEO back after she was fired by club owner and husband Frank, the Dodgers filed legal documents today against Jamie’s claim that are akin to an atom bomb.

The Dodgers attorneys claim that among the reasons Jamie was fired was a secret trip she took with “her bodyguard” to France - when she was supposed to be representing the Dodgers in Israel. She also billed the team for all her expenses in France.
The trip happened in July. The date of separation in the divorce proceeding is July 6.
Next question: Who was the “bodyguard” that accompanied Jamie to France? Read more…
TMZ gets its hands on Jamie McCourt’s official divorce filing today, and it’s a doozy.
(We all had the same reaction)
First off, Jamie lists the date of separation as July 6, 2009. Here are some of the things Jamie is demanding in the settle with husband Frank:
- travel by private jet
- 5 star hotel accommodations
- travel expenses - Unlimited
- business dinners 5 nights per week
- business lunches 5 days per week
- making Dodger Legends available for events without charge
- access to team doctors for McCourt family members
- access to the owner’s suite for Dodger home games and non-baseball events at the stadium
- Tickets to All-Star games and playoff games — even if the Dodgers aren’t playing
- a pass to all National League games
That’s not even the best part. Read more…
TMZ posted photos today it claims are of Jamie McCourt and her new boyfriend, a gent named Jeff Fuller.

We got these pictures of Jamie yesterday, lunching in Malibu with Jeff Fuller — the new guy in her life. Now, in the awkward department, until recently Jeff was the Director of Protocol for the Dodgers.
We’re told Jamie and Fuller began seeing each other after she split with Frank. Fuller was fired from the Dodgers in omid-October.
So Fuller just “recently” left the Dodgers and only started “seeing” Jamie after her split with Frank McCourt? Their timing is uncanny!
