One person who knows Sandra well is not a fan of Jesse’s but does shed light on the situation. In an exclusive video interview with RadarOnline.com, Sandra’s ex lover, David “Shark” Fralick says that the Oscar-winning star has always been attracted to “edgier” guys.
Fralick, who is a dead ringer for Entourage’s Kevin Dillon, said he had a steamy three-month relationship with Sandra in the 80s. “I was the epitome of the bad boy,” he says. He had long blond hair, was 6-foot-3 and weighed 220 pounds and says “She was attracted to that.”
The poster child for bad boys is obviously Jesse James, Sandra’s husband. He’s in sex rehab in Arizona and, as RadarOnline.com has exclusively reported, five women have now been linked to him in extra marital affairs.
Sandra’s public image as America’s Sweetheart has left many people puzzled about her attraction and marriage to James.
Fralick believes Sandra is drawn to bad boys like James and himself because of the way she was raised.. “I think they were very strict and rigid,” he said of her parents. “I guess the word ‘control’ comes to mind and that when she was not behind those four walls of living there at her parent’s house…there are certain guidelines you have to abide by to help keep peace in the family, and maybe she was experimenting on seeing a different type of person.”
Fralick, who starred in the daytime soap The Young And The Restless and Gone In Sixty Seconds, met Sandra when they were both starting their acting careers and they worked as bartenders or as he describes it: “We both twisted bottles.”
They often worked until 4 a.m. or 6 a.m. and then “we got busy and hung out and celebrated the long hard evening afterward,” he told RadarOnline.com, adding that Sandra had a penchant for slap stick comedy, music and animals.
He told RadarOnline.com that he has a personal message for the woman he called “my New York Sweetie:” “I feel for you girl. It’s been almost 30 years since we hung out in New York at the New York California Club above Nathans and I sympathize with you. I feel for you. I hope you’re ok. I wish you the best. If you need to reach out to an old friend that’s — not trying to get into your pants — call me ‘Shark’ — what can I say?”
Today, David Fralick teaches acting at the Hollywood Film And Acting Academy and is heavily involved with the In Defense Of Animals charity group – and has several projects in the pipeline including a role in The Story Of Bonnie And Clyde alongside Hilary Duff and Kevin Zegers.
