Usually a long and seemingly sincere visit to rehab is the first step for Hollywood celebrities hoping to clear up their reputations – and it generally WORKS. People love to forgive. Mel Gibson’s handlers (what’s left of them) are certainly trying to talk him into rehab right now, but when the arrogant actor is in the throes of his addiction (to alcohol and possibly other substances) and he’s in denial. (Dr Drew of Celebrity Rehab is probably licking his chops as we write this.) Gibson has insulted and offended just about everyone – women, Jews, Latinos, gays, journalists, blacks, cops, non-Catholics, – and he’s already blown his chances for redemption. Rehab isn’t enough. We suggest he move back to Australia and live on a farm out of the limelight.

    he could afford it…isn’t that what Russell Crowe has done?

    Mel has demons and an effed up daddy that’s for sure. I believe he’s bipolar, which is not an excuse for his violence, but it certainly explains a lot.

    Anyhoo, that’s what happens when you screw your respective wife over for some Russian gold digger. And he was dumb enough to have a child with her. She’s going to take him to the cleaners. If you hear the tapes, she’s egging him on and set him up to take a fall. He’s screwed!

    Yeah Sally! I am not superstitious, or New Agey, but I believe that woman have a special place in the cosmos, and when a man screws over a creative woman, an Earth Mother, or any other type of woman who really channels her female energy, he is up s**t creek (I think the Kennedys are cursed because of what Joseph Kennedy did to Gloria Swanson). And if Gibson’s ex-wife is not an Earth Mother, I do not know who is. Good luck Mel, you are going to need it.

    Mel is an asshole for sure, but what exactly did he do that was so horrible? Have a psychotic verbal rant in the PRIVACY of his own home that’s what and last I heard that is not a crime. We may not like his attitudes but as far as I know all he did was say something people didn’t like. I’m not a big fan of sending someone into lifelong exile over WORDS. If people can forgive Charlie Sheen, Woody Allen, Roman Polanski, Robert Downey Jr, and Danny Glover I don’t see why Mel shouldn’t be given the same consideration. I do really think he’s mentally crazy and in need of psych care.

    He’s certainly a major drunk, we know that much

    Kylie: you’re correct in stating Mel is a drunk. But what is worse is his rampant racism, which is released into the light by his alcoholism. Drunks tend to speak their TRUE mind when under the influence. And Asshole Mel uses these words as hammers to injure people where it will hurt them most, and he KNOWS it. So, no, crazy or not, sober or not, he does NOT get a pass and does NOT get a “get out of jail free” card either. Calling ANY woman a “cunt”, even a golddigger like this woman apparently is, AND after she gave birth to a child of his, is disgusting. Calling black people “niggers” and telling her he wishes a “pack of” them would “rape her” isn’t even human. Calling Mexican people “wetbacks”, or any of the other many ugly terms he calls people, are NOT acceptable OR forgivible. He knows better and always has, and any adult who chooses to be offensive to others in these ways does NOT deserve acceptance by any of the rest of us. They only deserve to be ostacized by society and banished as far awy from other humans as possible. They haven’t earned the right to live within range of other humans, and don’t deserve our company or consideration.

    So right Reta. Unfortunately Mel’s behavior is becoming standard male behavior – being conscious, gentile, respectable and respectful, literate, etc., is “queer”, and the douche bag is the 21st century archetypal male. Wanna be a man? Be a pig!

  9. By SebastianCanada
    On July 11, 2010 at

    Oops. That is “genteel”. What a bizarre slip considering Mel’s anti-Semitic comments.

  10. By Hilary
    On July 11, 2010 at

    Reta: As usual, you are right on! I wonder, though, if the ex-girlfriend really is a golddigger, or maybe she really fell in love w/ him before she realized what a sicko he is? Also, nothing has been written about Timothy Dalton in all of this — isn’t he the father of her 14-year-old son? Is Dalton not interested in getting his kid out of this scary situation? Just wonderin’…

    He’s rich beyond reason and can do as he wishes. YOU see and hear this filthy talk and brutal action towards another human being all the time in movies and conversation of the rich and godless. Who would ever put him upon a pedestal and expect the pope to emerge to name a saint and bless the crowd each time?

    it is NONE of OUR business what kind of language mel uses, to whom about what, EVER.
    his ‘rant’ is not ‘terrifying’ and it is hardly really racist…tons of people use these terms on a daily basis….as far as being ruined or whatever, mel has more money than god….so what if he never works again. in this business MONEY TALKS and mel has it…
    he did make a rather bad choice with this person…if anything he needs relationship rehab and for everyone to calm down and butt out of his life. Amen.

    Severe drunks talk like Mel does, and he is probably bi-polar. I believe the girlfriend was looking for a big payday before she met Mel: a stepped-up version of Robert Blake’s nightmare, just better looking.
    SebastianCanada thanks for your first comment.

    Damn it, when you know that he’s probably more happy than Woody Allen at a kids school where an the hell is Strom. This is your hero, idol and czar. You both see the world the same way where the hell are you? This is your shining momemt.

    Um,I think it is safe to say Mel would not be welcomed in Australia either. He hasn’t been considered Australian for decades.

    Never found that guy attractive EVER. I could never understand women who swooned over this guy. He always seemed creepy to me…

    Right! Hard to see what Mel has done wrong….she is a Russian gold digger,,,he should have dumped her long ago….many would be there to take her place. Mel just calls it like he see’s it.

    Reta, no one should need a “get out of jail” card simply for what they say especially when a mental illness is involved. The day we start putting people in prison for their words is the day we become a totalitarian society. People with bipolar or schizophrenia frequently rant hateful stuff they don’t mean when in a state of psychosis then have little memory of it after the fact. Mel also drinks heavily which can make a bipolar person highly unstable and psychotic. He needs psych care not exile away from humans. He isn’t Joran Van der Sloot for heaven’s sake!

    ps: I’m sure lots of rappers say equally hateful things but they get a pass. Everyone’s out to get Mel because he’s white and a big Christian.

  20. By Indy

    When he gets stone drunk, that’s when the demons in him get stirred up. He needs an exorcism STAT.

  21. By Reta
    On July 12, 2010 at

    OH YEAH…I forgot…he’s a “Christian”! Hahahahahahahahahaha! I wonder if he can pinpoint the spot in the Bible where it says it’s okay to call your baby’s mother a cunt, or threathen to bury her in the rose garden, or tell her you hope a “pack of niggers will rape her”?
    Wow, going to church with Mel must REALLY be an interesting undertaking…
    I’d rather take hell!

    i don’t care if she is/was a gold digger. he has not right to say these things to her, much less hit her.

    You heard it from Strom, he didn’t do anything wrong. Well that’s good enough for me.

  24. By Sally
    On July 12, 2010 at

    Here’s a question nobody seems to bother asking: Why the hell was she taping him anyway????? People say lots of things in the privacy of their own homes. Nobody is perfect. I know when I’m pissed at someone or something I say plenty of mean things I wouldn’t say if I was in a calmer state.

    Um Reta, my dear, she is a CUNT. She’s a gold digging piece of trash. As I recall many on here bashed Mickey Rourke’s girl, a Russian prostitute. You mentioned that she was out for his money. What makes this tramp so different from Mickey’s girl?

    As previously stated Mel is bipolar. My husband’s stepsister has this problem. They can’t help it and medication sometimes doesn’t do the trick. They escape with alcohol and act out. And they say lots of hurtful things they later don’t really remember.

  25. By Sally
    On July 12, 2010 at

    DiDi thank you. You’re the only one that seems to get it. Mental illness is the saddest, most isolating experience for the individual.

  26. By angie
    On July 12, 2010 at

    I’m surprised by the sympathy being expressed by a few here for Mel on the basis of his alleged bi-polar disorder. He’s well beyond being a full grown man with near limitless resources at his disposal to manage his condition. He lost me over the drinking and driving incident. He buried himself when he dared raise a hand to that woman, beating up her face and even chipping her teeth. He doesn’t give a damn because he’s an arrogant narcissist. If his condition is really so serious that it excuses him of responsibility, then he belongs in an institution. Either way, he’s out of control – an accident waiting to happen – and I hope the district attorney out there holds him fully accountable.

  27. By clementine
    On July 13, 2010 at

    I think Mel ought to take his zillions of dollars and go away for 5 years. Get help, or not, drink or not, it doesn’t matter. He doesn’t need to work, he doesn’t need money, he has the FREEEEDOM to do whatever he wants, and as such, he should go away and not be heard from for a long long time. He’s behaved this way for a LONG time, and he isn’t going to change. If I had his kinda dough, i’d be on a private island somewhere, drinking beer and eating sushi. Go away Mel, you aren’t welcome here any longer…

  28. By Reta
    On July 13, 2010 at

    Sally, I have a LOT of experience with mental illness. My “mother” tried to kill us 3 kids when I was 3 and she lost custody (duh!) and was put in a mental hospital for years after that. She is still alive and still refuses treatment. I have no pity for her, she has had every opportunity to help herself and has refused.
    I also understand this woman recording Mel. I had to do the same thing when my sociopath brother called me threatening me, and I used the tape to get a 3 yr restraining order (which DIDN’T keep him away). I had to move completely away and it took him 13 years before he found me again. I also have a bi-polar sister so I really DO understand mental illness and how badly it affects a whole family.
    I believe Mel is a ticking time bomb and is behaving like the people who go off and kill their whole families when they can’t take any more. If he continues to refuse to get treatment and also keeps drinking he is doomed and anyone in his circle is in danger. If the courts are smart, they will not allow unsupervised visitation with Mel.

  29. By Sally
    On July 13, 2010 at

    Reta, I’m so sorry to hear about your family. My heart goes out to you. It’s not easy and it’s certainly emotionally taxing. But you didn’t choose your family. You can’t help who they are.

    This woman pisses me off because she clearly walked into this relationship knowing who Mel is. And recording him wasn’t to protect herself or her child. She did it to squeeze money off of him. She’s exploiting his illness and alcoholism and it’s pretty clear by this barrage of bad press. KARMA IS A BITCH!

    I, by no means, am not supportive of his violence. It’s just a sad situation considering he’s the father of 8 kids. I’m just looking at this from another perspective.

  30. By Bettye Bluejay
    On July 13, 2010 at

    My take on Oksana: She’s a psychopath (read The Psychopath Next Door) and pushed all of Mel’s buttons, because psychopaths don’t have consciences. They know how to use people. Mel Gibson’s behavior was awful, but he had an equal partner in the ugliness.

  31. By angied
    On July 14, 2010 at

    To those disparaging Oksana, did you know she’s the former wife of actor Timothy Dalton, with whom she had a son, Alexander (Sasha) Dalton, now 12 years old? Some act like she just stepped off the boat from Russia with a plan to make it in this country by targeting a stupid, rich American. She and Timothy parted ways amicably, and she made no attempt to empty his bank account. She began taping Mel because he started to frighten her. He carried on abusively in front of her son too you know. I would have taped him too, his big movie star status be damned. Where’s the outrage that Chris Brown received? Do you have to be a bigger celebrity, or did Rihanna have to be a lesser star? Not buying the gold digger accusations, at all. More like what defense attorneys do when they try putting the victim on trial in rape cases. Outrageous.

  32. By DiDi
    On July 14, 2010 at

    Reta, keep in mind that when someone is mentally ill they don’t know they are mentally ill, in their mind it’s YOU that’s the problem and they don’t understand why you are harassing them. Also, some mental health drugs don’t work and have horrible side effects the person cannot tolerate which is another reason they refuse. Antipsychotic drugs permanently destroy your intellect and cause permanent impotence. Would you want that done to you? Also, drugs only work for a short time then they stop working so what does a person do then? Unfortunately there is no magic cure, it’s a lifelong disease.

    As far as the tape goes, I found it interesting that Oksana told him he “needed medication” on the tape so she knows he is mentally ill therefore why didn’t she call for help instead of TAPING him???? It’s clear she only wants to grab his money.

  33. By Sally
    On July 14, 2010 at

    Timothy Dalton was never married to her. They just have a son together. And he’s not in the same $ league as Mel Gibson.

    So a person’s abusive in front of your child and the best you can do is tape them and exploit it in the media. That doesn’t make any sense. Wow what a caring mother. The chick is fucked up. If she’s “not off the boat” and been in the game for a while then shouldn’t she know his character?

  34. By Sally
    On July 14, 2010 at

    DiDi you’re the only person on this post making any sense.

  35. By Reta
    On July 14, 2010 at

    I think she originally was after his money. AND she kind of proved that when she let him bankroll that horrible failed attempt at “music” she made. Part of his rant is about the money he wasted on that. I also think she went after Dalton for his money. Child support from a rich guy for 18 years can add up to a lot of money, so her saying Mel has left her penniless is bullshit.
    But I DO support her taping of him, because I had to do it too against my brother. Otherwise they just say “no I didn’t” and it’s a “he said she said” thing and goes nowhere.

    There is no rehab for being an asshole.

  37. By angie
    On July 15, 2010 at

    Sally, I repeat that had I been in her shoes, I would have taped him too, particularly because he’s a rich and powerful man that I’d be no match for. You’re basing your defense of Mel on an unproven assumption you’re making, and trivializing Mel’s beating Oksana’s face while she held their baby in her arms. The fact that her son was in the vicinity is secondary to that. For whatever reason, your thinking is extremely biased in this case. Whatever.

  38. By star
    On July 15, 2010 at

    I agree the woman is more deserving of the benefit of the doubt than Mel Gibson at this point. She has no history of prior problems with anyone that I’m aware of, while Mel on the other hand… I’m sure he turned on the charm to win her heart and get into her pants as only an award winning actor can. The worst I can fault her for so far is stupidity for believing he’d miraculously change his spots for her.

  39. By Sally
    On July 15, 2010 at

    Angie, why wouldn’t she go to the police? She waited six months later to take him to court and released totally illegal tapes. Perhaps, you’re biased in your view as well. It’s clear Bitch is a gold digger and that’s my opinion. She’s also an idiot.

    She just totally destroyed her case. It’s illegal to tape a conversation without another’s consent in some states and that includes California. Look it up. So I doubt you could “have taped him too”.

    Twelve states require, under most circumstances, the consent of all parties to a conversation. Those jurisdictions are California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Washington. Be aware that you will sometimes hear these referred to inaccurately as “two-party consent” laws. If there are more than two people involved in the conversation, all must consent to the taping.

  40. By PHOENIX
    On July 15, 2010 at

    The tapes were surrendered in court today on the judges order to be examined by experts, and will be admitted into evidence against Mel if it’s determined they were not tampered with.

    And you can most certainly CAN LEGALLY tape anyone who MAKES THREATENING PHONE CALLS to you, regardless of where you live.

    Have you even listened to the 5 tapes released so far? That woman says nothing to incite Mel, and everything to keep their exchanges calm. Mel’s idea of “pushing his buttons” is for a woman to DARE open her mouth in defense of herself while he’s abusing her. He’s an animal and I hope they throw the book at him.

  41. By Kelly
    On July 15, 2010 at

    Radar Online has pictures of their baby Lucia bruised as a result of the attack on Oksana by Mel while she was holding the baby. When Oksana tried to leave the house, he pulled a gun on her to force her to stay. While waving the gun in her face he told her that if she wanted to leave fast, the gun would help. You can listen to all the tapes at the Radar Online website.

    Love him or hate him, this guy is a loudmouth who doesn’t hesitate to tell it like he sees it- but there’s one thing he NEVER talks about: his prostate problem. Long story short: he LEAKS! He likes to project an image of macho virility, but under his custom made suits are custom made “diapers.” He’s VERY self-conscious and has absorbent but undetectable “panty liners” sewn into all his underwear, to avoid wet spots. Thanks to his arrogant behavior, he has more than a few enemies and he’s terrified his secret will be exposed and he’ll be forever ridiculed!
