EVEN REHAB CAN’T SAVE MEL GIBSON’S REPUTATION AND CAREER
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.
