In an apparent apology to fans for losing touch with himself, James, 42, quipped, "I became a big shot and married some Hollywood actress and didn’t talk to anybody anymore, so I feel bad. ... I feel obligated to reconnect with all these people and show 'em that I'm still the same fabricator motorcycle guy. I'm not what I became."
Of course, James and Bullock, 47, called it quits largely due to his affair with Michelle "Bombshell" McGee and several other women. He rebounded in August 2010 with Kat von D -- to whom he became engaged (twice!) before they broke up for good earlier this year.
Von D later revealed that James cheated on her with 19 women.
