iVillage Woman of the Week: Sandra Bullock

One sordid story dominated celebrity news this week, and one woman quietly grieved while legions of supporters rooted for her

Each week we pick one woman who's done something to make us proud.

This week, we're simply full of hope that Blind Side star and Oscar winner -- America's Sweetheart, really -- Sandra Bullock makes us proud by taking the high road as her once very private marriage falls to pieces in public. She hasn't said a word since allegations of husband Jesse James' infidelity began highjacking headlines, but she has certainly brought out the empathetic girlfriend in all of us (let's remember, this is a woman who reveled in being a good stepmom and gushed about the guy she believed "had my back.") Now, even fellow Academy Award winner Mo'Nique has been compelled to offer Bullock, 45, a shoulder to cry on.

Let's just say we're not so proud of the women who -- if their stories are true -- entered into affairs with the (allegedly) cheating husband. But we all feel for the glamourous Hollywood star who was flying high on a major career comeback in early March, and whose trusting heart must be breaking right now.
