Adultress Michelle “Bombshell” McGee reveals her skewed concepts of racism and anti-Semitism in shocking interviews airing Monday and Tuesday on CTV’s ETALK.

Reporter Lainey Lui spoke with the world’s most-hated woman yesterday in Toronto, where McGee was shooting commercials as the new actress for the pro-adultery website AshleyMadison.com.

During the interview, she reveals shocking beliefs about her past and her relationship with Sandra Bullock’s soon-to-be ex-husband, Jesse James.

The two-part interview airs Monday, May 31 and Tuesday, June 1 at 7 p.m. ET on CTV. Viewers can also watch it online beginning this Tuesday at www.etalk.ctv.ca.

Lainey, ETALK’s resident gossip maven, goes head-to-head with a placid McGee over her skewed definition of racism, James’ past abuse, and why McGee believes she did Sandra Bullock a favour. McGee also defends her decision to participate in a campaign for the controversial “dating” website:

On her pattern of racism and posing in a Nazi uniform:

McGee: “I guess one could view it that way.  I don’t believe it’s racism at all.”

Lainey: “You don’t believe wearing a Nazi costume indicates racism?”

McGee: “No not racism.  Anti-Semitism? Yes.  If that was the intention of putting the costume on.”

Lainey: “Anti-Semitism is prejudice against Jews, which is actually racism.”

McGee:  “Oh okay, well that’s your view on that.  I don’t see it that way.”

On Sandra Bullock:

McGee: “In a twisted type of way, I guess Sandra should be thankful that I did come forward and let her know that her husband did cheat on her.”

On participating in an Ashley Madison campaign:

McGee: “I have two beautiful boys to take care of, I’m a single mom. So yeah I have profited off of this but it’s also my first priority is to take care of my kids, to make sure they have a roof over their heads and food.”

Lainey: “So you own the cheating?”

McGee:  “I do.  Absolutely.”

Lainey: “As a way to support the children?”

McGee:  “Yeah.  I will do what it takes to support my children. Absolutely.”
