Sandra Bullock will face U.S. TV cameras next week for the first time since her scandalous split from cheating ex Jesse James.

The star will sit down with Today show host Matt Lauer in New Orleans on Tuesday, six months after her world was turned upside down by reality TV star James’ infidelity.

Bullock’s March Best Actress Oscar win was overshadowed just days after she lifted the statuette for her role in The Blind Side, when a U.S. tabloid revealed James had cheated on her with tattoo model Michelle McGee.

The actress went into hiding, emerging in April to reveal she and James had adopted three month old baby son before news of his affair had broken.

A divorce, ending their five-year marriage, was finalised in June.
