Well, don't let people that are so lame get to you. I mean, come on, these people are not that smart. I mean really, couldn' they come up with a better user name than SugarT_ts and LaLa? LOL
Thanks, but I was making a 'touche' point. Could be the reason Mel isn't saying anything, that often his comments are taken out of context.
They never concede on any point, never admit a mistake or apologise. You can tell they're control freaks.(or wanna be).

No, I didn't. I think I know my initials. You might not like the name, but at least I'm not delusional thinking I'm Mel's next girlf...er..actually victim. Nor do I want to be.

Now Keith Urban; Vince Gill...those are REAL men.

This is a genuine question, is there an organisation in the States which supports showbiz people ? Do you understand me?
A lot of occupations have support groups.

You didn't. Sorry, that was actually meant for the poster from VA. I thought the 'reply' would include both of your posts.

When you say 'support', I'm not sure exactly what kind of support you are referring to; emotional, mental, financial, etc.

They do have a union, Screen Actors Union I believe it's called, although I'm not 100% sure. You cannot act in any film until you're a member though, so I know he is one.

If your question relates to mental health treatment, Mel has insurance through the union, so he can,(and has), seek therapy.

My guess is it will take years to undo the damage to him that I suspect his father did to him. It's not that I don't sympathize, but he's 54 years old. Old enough to take responsibility for his own mental health and his own decisions. Picking on woman,(even ones that we may not like), is not the right answer.

I completely agree with your statements! Bravo!

I think we may have to wait a good while before Mel takes responsibility for his words or actions though. He has not apologized for his homophobic remarks from years ago.

His apology to the Jewish community seems disengenuous because he is obviously still racist, referring to wetbacks and n*****s. It is like saying "sorry" because he was told to do so, not because he felt it within his soul.

how can oyu talk about him taking responsability for his actions when notjhing at all has been proven and its only her say stiuff that the lawyer right today has been proven to be faulse?

not a single of her evidences are true
they are all manipulated and made up

what happened to innocent until proven guilty?

up ot nopw all evidences show that she is guilty of extortion, edamtion, disobeying a judge order whuich is a felony too, recording a perosn wihtout its cosnent and for no reaosns at all others than money, an dnot to prevent a crime, felony too, and lying to the police and crminal investigators and to the judge and lying under oath.

all in all 5 ot 15 years in jail.

add to it the DNA test provign that mel gibson is not the father and oksan is not th emother of that chikld and she is out to being send out of USA.

he was definitly told ot say sorry as je had never made any antisemitic rants.
the media hwo came with tha tsotry was radar online who at the time was about to close.
so know what you are tlaing about before making fuaklse accusations,.
harvey levi, owner of tmz has confessed since that it was all an hoax and that he knew the report he was given by officer mee was a fake.

He told that in an interview ot a newspaper in novmeebr 2009.

He said "It was an hoax" that benefited him greatly finacialy and in term of PR, and that he si stil living on today.

therefor to he is mopre carefull now when delaing withthis extortion case, presented as domestic violence case.

nothign of what is in those tapes is true.

The minute I heard his tone and the intensity of what he was saying, I know I had heard it before from my my ex husband (that is why he is ex). I will never see Mel the way I use to.
Me too...I almost thought it was him for a second! My ex, Mel, without money...
