Radar has just released a third audio clip of Mel Gibson screaming at his ex (this is the “wetback” clip. Another highlight: “You’re a f*cking mentally deprived idiot. You’re a f*cking using whore…I own you. You don’t count.”) but at least now one of his Hollywood friends is saying something in his defense.
Similar to what producer Dean Devlin said after Mels DUI and anti-Semitic comments in 2006, yesterday on ‘the View’ Whoopi Goldberg said she is friends with Mel and does not believe he’s racist.
“I don’t like what he did here, but I know Mel and I know he’s not a racist … I have had a long friendship with Mel, I just wanna make this really clear … You can say he’s being a bonehead but I can’t sit and say that he’s a racist having spent time with him in my house with my kids, I can’t say it.”
Whoopi deserves a lot of credit for being fair enough to balance her emotions with what she knows to be true. Unfortunately Joy Behar and Sherri Shepherd are still a racists dream come true, someone for them to point at and say “see?”. Seriously, do white supremacists produce this show, what in the hell are those dummies doing on TV?
MEL GIBSON - stars in the movie ‘The Beaver’, directed by Jodie Foster, which was supposed to be released in September. Now Foster and the studio don’t know what to do with it. I asked Gibson what he told Foster as far as an apology, and this (NSFW language) is what he told her, but that’s pretty much his answer to everything. (e online)
TRANSFORMERS 3 - is currently filming in Chicago, and new set pics reveal that there are now NASCAR Transformers too. Not for marketing purposes, just because it makes a lot of sense to hide as the most conspicuous cars on earth. (jalopnik)
PREDATORS - is getting tremendous reviews and positive word of mouth, but some fans are annoyed because this iconic shot from the trailer is not actually in the movie. In the movie, Adrien Brody is only hit by one Predator laser. Why would fans complain about this? Because their lives are fantastic. (io9)
OPIE - of the Opie and Anthony show broke the story that New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner died today, according to his exclusive MLB sources. They were the first news outlet to report this, breaking the story on air around 8:30am, while CNN picked up the story almost 90 minutes later. After that they laughed at a dancing retarded girl, though CNN has yet to confirm that story. (twitter)
SOFIA VERGARA – had too many awesome bikini pictures yesterday to put in one post, so here are some more. Also continued from yesterday: my erection that’s hard enough to chop firewood. (splash news online)
New Mel Gibson audio has been released today, featuring Mel threatening to kill or beat up his ex girlfriend several different times during the 8 minute tape, meaning either he’s a sociopath or she’s some type of hard-to-kill zombie. Highlights include…
– MEL: “You need a f*cking bat in the side of the head. Alright, how about that?” (just in case that wasn’t rhetorical, “No thank you.”)
- MEL: “I’ll put you in a f *ckin rose garden you c*nt! You understand that? Because I’m capable of it. You understand that?” (I don’t think she understands yet. Maybe another dozen threatening examples would help.)
- OKSANA: “What kind of a man is that? Hitting a woman when she’s holding a child in her hands? Breaking her teeth twice in the face! What kind of man is that?” MEL: “Oh, you’re all angry now! You know what, you f*cking deserved it!” (maybe she was swinging the baby around by its feet.)
He gets so angry at one point he’s literally breathless. Does anyone know where this guy is, by the way? Are we safe? He’s a violent maniac with his back against the wall and a billion dollars. We should declare him an enemy of the state before he builds some sort of doomsday device.
ROMAN POLANSKI - will not be extradited by the Swiss to the US. He of course was convicted in 1977 of drugging a 13-year-old model and fucking her in the ass, but he fled the country and has never served a day in jail. Well maybe I’ll just go over there and fuck some of their teen models in the ass. Two can play this little game, Switzerland. (huff post)
EVERYONE GOT MARRIED THIS WEEKEND - including Carrie Underwood to NHL star Mike Fisher, Martin Lawrence to Shamicka Gibbs, and John Krasinski and Emily Blunt to each other. By contrast, I found a big box, painted numbers on it and pretended it was a race car. Oh god I’m so lonely! (people, people, people)
MEL GIBSON - has said offensive stuff for a long time, and here’s a list of some of it going back as far as 1991 when he said: “They take it up the ass. (points to his anus) This is only for taking a shit.” To make matters worse he was answering a question about Mexicans when he said that. (gawker)
SOPHIE TURNER – spent the weekend in a bikini in Malibu, and I think I see a shark behind her in one of these pictures. She should take her bikini top off and signal for help. (pacific coast)
Mel Gibson has gotten a lot of bad press lately, but finally someone is saying something nice about him. Turns out he made a promise to his girlfriend that he would bury her in their rose garden after she passed away. It’s kind of sweet really, that he would want to keep her so close. And girls go crazy about roses.
“Mel made a series of serious and violent threats against Oksana,” a source, with direct knowledge of the situation, told RadarOnline.com.
“When things in their relationship started going badly and he made the first threats against her, Oksana decided she needed to protect herself.
“She made the recordings and on one of them, Mel is heard telling Oksana, ‘I will bury you in the rose garden,’ which she believed to be a clear reference to killing her.”
The big question now is will this hurt Mels career. These days, even if you only punch a woman in the face, knock her teeth out, threaten to burn her house down, threaten to kill her, call Mexicans wetbacks, call black people niggers, imply black people prowl the streets in packs looking to rape white woman, drive drunk, and verbally abuse police one time, suddenly you get labeled as a “bad guy”.
