Passion of the Mel: Payback

That didn't take too long, did it? Mel Gibson is fighting back, fighting for his kids, his livelihood and his reputation. He has gone so far as to enlist his ex-wife in sending a sworn affidavit that he never abused her or their children in 28 years of marriage.

That much must be true. While Mel is a drinker, womanizer, and nutty as a bag of squirrels, he doesn't have the history as an abuser. Not of people.

Still, he's lost a lot already: His agent, the agency that represented him, and I am sure plenty of the hollywood elites won't return his calls. Some might say he is done.

I will tell you what though: He surely has enough money to do as he pleases. He could finance his own films if he choses, and I am sure there is talent out there that would still work with him. Look at Mickey Rourke. He came back and won an oscar, so it's possible.

All that being said, Mel has a long and tough road to hoe. The tone, tenor and language on those recording was over the top and he crossed the line. Whatever his pain is, he needs to fix it and fix it permanently. Lawyers may make a lot of this go away, but if he's still the same, I am sure we'll get Mad Mel 3.

As I have said before, I was a Gibson fan. Who wouldn't love the semi-closeted right wing action hero from Peekskill NY? The Right Guy wishes him well and hopes he gets the help he needs. In time, everything goes away.

Thank you for reading this blog.

PS, I wonder how the conversation between Robyn and him went like?

Mel said more or less what I would have said with the exception of beating her head soft(er). That's not called for and he's paid a steep price for that.

He is a public figure, I don't know that he has a single "friend" that wouldn't sell him down the river. So to that extent I feel bad for him. Hollywood is a nest of vipers. He needs to find a normal place and be around normal people to the extent that's possible.

LL:
The guy was fooling around with a hottie and she got pregnant twice. He's gotta realize that if he had an ear growing out of his forehead, she'd say he's cute. Obviously he wasn't thinking or thinking right and that's what lead to this even if he's right in his assessment. He's still part of it and made the decision to be so. No victims, only volunteers.

You are right though, he needs to get out of the limelight and find a quiet place. I think he has siblings, so may be he could start there. Family is all that's left after awhile.

I hope the same for Mel Gibson also.
