Former Ashley Madison spokesmodel Michelle ‘Bombshell’ McGee branded the website “a scam” in a scathing interview with INSIDE EDITION.
McGee, who famously had an affair with Jesse James when he was married to Sandra Bullock, spoke exclusively to INSIDE EDITION for an interview that will air in full on Wednesday.
She said the cheaters’ website asked her to represent them in 2010 and set up an account. She said she filled out a profile using her real name and image but said she never logged back in.
So she said she was surprised when strangers later approached her and said she had spoken to them online.
“I feel like they used my profile to lure people,” she said.
She believes Ashley Madison used her profile because she claims women do not genuinely go on the site.
“I think there are actually women on there but the real women are scam artists or porn girls looking to generate more income to the website,” she said. “But almost of them are fake profiles that Ashley Madison posted so they can maintain control.”
She said she was paid to recruit friends to create profiles for the website, including Merilee Gerth. Gerth told INSIDE EDITION that she had no intention of having an affair through the website.
“Once I created the profile, I had nothing to do with it,” she said. “They were looking for women to fill out profiles so they could take over the profile and monitor it and respond to any men.”
Due to this, women whose husbands signed up to the website should not be worried, McGee added.
“People have zero affairs on Ashley Madison,” she said.
When asked what she thought of the company, she didn’t hold back.
“I think they're scam artists, I think they're shady, they're snakes,” she said. “I think they're dishonest people all around - to the people they con to join the website and to the customers on the website.”
Ashley Madison has not responded to INSIDE EDITION'S requests for a comment on McGee’s claims but on Monday, they released a statement disputing reports that women members were not active on the website.
The statement said that 87,596 women signed up to the service in the last week alone and in that time, women sent more than 2.8 million messages on the site.
"Ashley Madison is the number one service for real people seeking discreet encounters," it said.
