Jesse James stopped by to promote his new book, ‘American Outlaw,’ and laughed when Howard asked after his old ‘Monster Garage’ show: “It just ended…five years ago.”

Jesse said he focused his more recent efforts on healing himself: “I did all the hard work on myself in rehab and therapy and, for the first time ever, I love myself and feel like I accept myself for what I am and I’ve forgiven myself for what happened and now I can actually love someone and be in a relationship.”

Howard wondered why Jesse had asked Kat Von D to marry him when he’d already blown 3 marriages, so Jesse explained: “It’s just a testament to what an amazing girl she is–someone that, you know, kind of stood by my side through all this. You know, when everybody kind of turned their back on me and–and totally persecuted me and, like, nobody wanted to be my friend. She was there for me through of all of it.”
