Blame it on Sandra Bullock. At least that's what Jesse James ex wife Janine James is doing after she was sentenced to six months in prison for tax evasion.

"At this low point in my life, I tried to create the lifestyle I thought was

taken from Sunny when her father left me for Sandra Bullock. That was a big

mistake," she wrote in a letter to the court prior to her sentencing.

"I was hurt and confused and made bad decisions about how I spent my money, ignoring my back taxes. I was threatened and intimidated by Jesse's wealth, afraid I might lose my daughter to that wealth someday, and tried to 'keep up.'"

Prosecutors say the 40-year old adult film star owes $294,000 in back taxes.

Investigators say Janine did have enough cash to buy a $648,000 home in Eugene, Oregon in 2005.

The former Penthouse Pet Of The Month has until March 10th to report to prison.
