Experts and Attorneys hired by Mel Gibson are publicly stating those tell-all tapes were 'doctored', altered and spliced. That would translate to these 'Anderson Cooper-Geraldo Rivera' style expose' on these tapes as them being entirely thrown out and unmissable in a court.

It seems Mel Gibson's Ex wants what is best for their child, however extortion and attempts to destroy Mel Gibson's future earnings doesn't translate to helping their child nor in gaining a large financial settlement in the divorce child custody settlement, it is simply revenge and being vengeful.

gerald Jolly   July 15th, 2010 8:13 pm ET

In my opinion having heard all seven tapes, I do not believe that they are all real, there are just to many voice cadence changes to make them believable.

I am now more convinced that the entire B. S. is nothing more than an atempt to extort money from him.

And I truly believe that the Russian Mafia is involved in this nonsense in some way

Smith in Oregon   July 15th, 2010 9:07 pm ET

Lawrence Taylor appears to have raped a minor who was kidnapped by LT's pimp, who delivered her to Lawrence Taylor's room and after Lawrence Taylor raped the minor, paid her 300 dollars for her services as a unwilling prostitute.

Police arrested Lawrence Taylor's kidnapper and pimp, found the 300 dollars LT paid the minor for sex, seems like a slam dunk Mrs. Taylor.

Lawrence Taylor should receive 10-20 years in State Prison for these grave crimes and roundly condemned for his actions.

Susan Lund   July 15th, 2010 9:08 pm ET

To me, the best person to replace Larry is Jeff Probst. He is very smart, very curious and asks the same kind of "to the point" questions that Larry asks. Just sayin'. The 3 choices in next week's TV Guide are not the best, I think, but Jeff would do a wonderful job, I believe.

Dodie   July 15th, 2010 9:10 pm ET

Why are the tapes not verified before they are televised to the public? Do you realize this could ruin Mel Gibson's career. The media is using a potential hypothetical situation and making it public for profits. Where is the media responsibility?

Angela Smith   July 15th, 2010 9:11 pm ET

First of all, I am sure everybody in their lifetime have been in heated arguments with their other half, the difference is….. it was not posted all over television…… Who is to say that Oksana was not provoking Mel and saying things to him while holding the mute button then recording his response….women can be very vindictive if we want to be….she probably waiting till he had a few drinks then pushed his buttons to where he had to blow up, she had it planned for sure….that’s why she was able to record it…....Listen …Mel is a good guy…ask his Ex wife and his kids….Oksana…shame on you for making these tapes Public….and Arsenio Hall… was never a friend if you turn your back on Mel now…..True friends help out when they are going through hard times…..Mel…I am here if you need a friend….I wouldn’t turn my back on you
If Mel request to have my email……let him have it…I will talk with him and show my support.

Good for you Stephen Gibson for trying to be there for Mel in his darkest hour....

Angela Smith

Angela Smith   July 15th, 2010 9:18 pm ET

I am sorry not Stephen Gibson but Stephen Baldwin.....Thank you for having Mel Gibson's his darkest hour.....

Michael Armstrong Sr.   July 15th, 2010 9:20 pm ET

I think that woman drove him to insanity .

Lynn   July 15th, 2010 9:21 pm ET

Hi Larry,

Re: Mel Gibson

Any chance the Russian ex-girlfriend is drugging Mel Gibson's drinks
so she can take all his money?

Where is her 12 year old child of the ex-girlfriend?
Is he/she living with the mother? If not, how come?

Michael Armstrong Sr.   July 15th, 2010 9:22 pm ET

Gold diggers come a dime a dozen and with a soun effects artist anything could happen .

Michael Armstrong Sr.   July 15th, 2010 9:26 pm ET

Look guys your talking about Holly Wood land these actors are good at make beleave and so is there help this women has an acomplis.

rick   July 15th, 2010 9:30 pm ET

are you all blind?
she is making the tapes.
she is releasing the tapes.
she has a custody battle in the works.
she has future millions at stake in a
future divorce, and this isn't motive?
why not smear the guy while you are
robbing him? will no one come to
mel's defense? i will.

Angela Smith   July 15th, 2010 9:31 pm ET

Michael....I agree...I think she is out to ruin his name....she had it planned the whole time...she knew what to say and when to say it to upset him so bad.....Tell me one person who have not said things out of anger.....I know she had the mute button down when she was cursing him out but then recording his response only.......

sheila   July 15th, 2010 9:32 pm ET

Thank you , Expert Paul Ginsberg for being a CLASS ACT- VERY CREDIBLE unfortunately I cannot say the same for the guy West. God Bless You !!!

sherri New Jersey   July 15th, 2010 9:33 pm ET

Why does anyone care what he says, it's no one's business but their business.

I hate that these things become big stories same thing as the Tiger woods thing. I really could careless what's going on in there lives .

We all have our own problems to worry about.


Sharon   July 15th, 2010 9:34 pm ET

I believe tapes are not chronoligically correct. Why is the x-girlfriend so calm when she is being verbally attacked and accused of being well not dressed to nice.

Dodie   July 15th, 2010 9:35 pm ET

@Angela Smith

While some women can be manipulative, so can men. It does not matter if he had been drinking or not, as that is no excuse and he needs to be responsible for his words and behaviors. Mel Gibson had a choice, he could have hung up when he became angry. Anger is a normal emotion, it only becomes a problem when we infringe psychological, physical and emotional pain on others. Are we perfect? Heck NO! This does not make Mel Gibson a bad person, he just needs to learn when to distance from the triggers. Many X wives would never admit to abuse due to their embarrassment. BTW, you have a very interesting name!!

Michael Armstrong Sr.   July 15th, 2010 9:36 pm ET

@ Angie Im married I know the routine a woman can drive you crazzzzzy .

Dodie   July 15th, 2010 9:37 pm ET

@ Michael Armstrong Sr.

No one can drive us to anything unless we play the game and not take responsibility. You are very funny... lol

Dodie   July 15th, 2010 9:40 pm ET

Angela Smith

There is a high propensity that she might want revenge. However, we were not there so making judgments from assumptions is just that... silly conjectures!

Dodie   July 15th, 2010 9:41 pm ET

@ Michael Armstrong Sr

rofl only if you "allow" her to!!!

Michael Armstrong Sr.   July 15th, 2010 9:42 pm ET

@ Dodie sometimes games can be a whole lot of fun unless you loose .

Angela Smith   July 15th, 2010 9:42 pm ET

No excuse for sure but when you have been can't reason or stop from saying things.....shame on her for recording this when she could have simply walked away and ended the relationship when it started to turn bad...........why is my name interesting....LOL

Danica   July 15th, 2010 9:43 pm ET

Since when doea a famous person HAVE to comment on an emotional rage rant made in a personal phone call that was probably illegally recorded? It says more about the person who exposed the tape.

Vickie Johnson   July 15th, 2010 9:43 pm ET

Yes, I believe the tapes were planned and doctored. Odd to me that his ex-wife never had any problems with supposed assaults. I'm sorry, but I am a big big big Mel Gibson fan and if he made a movie TOMORROW, I WOULD GO RIGHT OUT AND BUY A TICKET!

ckesling   July 15th, 2010 9:46 pm ET

thank you robin sax for putting mark geragos in his place.people who have not been in a domestic violence situation should not comment on this topic.oksana has nothing to gain by lying about this...just because mel is a very rich man does not give him the right to abuse her the way he did. some of the words he called her, the mother of his child is horrible !!!i hope he goes away forever.i hope he does serious jail time.. domestic violence is a serious problem.hope that dentist still has those pictures !!!! come on mel, lets hear YOUR side of the story !!! i'm sure your hiding behind your lawyer.

Angela Smith   July 15th, 2010 9:46 pm ET

LOL Micheal....Yes we can so be nice....ha ha

Dodie   July 15th, 2010 9:52 pm ET

Trust becomes a huge problem with a person that has been deceived and "burned". Instead of blaming the "X", if you are smart enough to get a divorce, it would be wise to take care in your next choice. We also need to remember that if we cannot trust again, we eventually end up "burning" ourselves.... It is important to heal and move on with life. Too many of us become "stuck" and remain there for the rest of our lives.....

Rand spokane wa.   July 15th, 2010 9:54 pm ET

Larry you've got alot of patience to attempt a conversation with this woman..

Dodie   July 15th, 2010 9:56 pm ET

Michael Armstrong Sr.

Games are defined as winner or looser. How about just having fun...

Dodie   July 15th, 2010 9:58 pm ET

@ Angela Smith

Both need to take responsibility in a relationship. It takes two to play the game and two to create a bad relationship. Ah, Angela... you know why I think your name is interesting... lol

Dodie   July 15th, 2010 10:00 pm ET

If one is unable to control their behaviors while drinking, it might be wiser not to drink. That is the same issue with driving and drinking...

Angela Smith   July 15th, 2010 10:01 pm ET

@ckesling......again....there were pauses in the can make people assume the worst if you are in control over the situation....Oksana was in control over the taping so she could have cursed and called him all kinds of names while holding the pause button down....then when he responded she started to tape again....she had this planned....

Angela Smith   July 15th, 2010 10:04 pm ET

@Dodie......No I don't...why....LOL....I dont get it.....

Angela Smith   July 15th, 2010 10:06 pm ET

I agree Dodie about the is a shame and a waste to ruin your life in that is not worth it....

Dodie   July 15th, 2010 10:15 pm ET

Angela Smith

Games are dangerous in relationships. Always someone becomes hurt.
If you win, then the person you care for would lose. Something I would never want for someone I care about! About your name.....Yes, you get it... you have always gotten it... lol

Sharon Wright   July 15th, 2010 10:18 pm ET

Lawrence Taylor's wife is in big time denial. I hate to tell her no matter how grown a 16 year old is she still is a minor. I belive he might have been set up but he should know that no good is to come when a woman just appears in your room.

Angela Smith   July 15th, 2010 10:20 pm ET

@Dodie.....Hmmmmmm....must be over my head or something.....LOL....

Dodie   July 15th, 2010 10:35 pm ET

CCTV said that all of Europe is 38 degrees C including Russia. That is 100 degrees to us. I do not believe I have ever seen Europe this hot....

Dodie   July 15th, 2010 10:40 pm ET

Angela Smith

Over your head... like as a crow flies? Just hope when it passes over, you are not deuced! lol...

W.Wallace   July 15th, 2010 10:47 pm ET

It's official. At 6:33 of the 8:00 recording posted at radaronline, you clearly hear Oksana say: "...listen to me, Mel..." So, now that the cat is out-of-the-bag, and unless Mel can prove it was his "Hollywood imitator" who is actually recorded on the tape, this dude is in a kettle of hot water. I have never heard a man refer to his wife/girlfriend/partner with the "C" word as many times as he uses it on that recording. What a whimp, that guy!

Dodie   July 15th, 2010 11:50 pm ET

CCTV mentioned an inconsistency in the ocean floor by the Horizon oil well...

Smith in Oregon   July 15th, 2010 11:51 pm ET

Republican potty'ticians getting their 'jig' on? Huh?

That was the crowing report today by US Senate Republican minority leader Mitch McConnell. Only three Republican Senators voted YES with all of the Democratic Senators for a sweeping regulation and overhaul on Wall Street financing and banking.

Yes, a mere 3 years after the worst possible disaster in America's long Banking and Wall Street Investment history and America is still languishing in that economic upheaval, Republican Senator Mitch McConnell is 'crowing' and proud of the Republican obstruction, proud that every single Republican US Senator except three voted against sweeping regulation and financial overhaul on Wall Street and Banking practices?

First off Mitch McConnell thanks to Bush-Cheney, American taxpayers bailed out your friends in Wall Street to the tune of hundreds of Billions of taxpayer dollars! Second, obstructing and attempting to block regulation on those obviously reckless practices to protect Americans living on Main Street, USA is utterly crass and absolutely irresponsible!

I openly urge American voters to entirely vote Democratic across the entire board of possible incumbents and candidates during the mid-term elections.

jack   July 16th, 2010 12:00 am ET

@Dodie July 15th, 2010 9:35 pm ET
Very well stated.

Carrie   July 16th, 2010 12:04 am ET

It is very difficult to listen to the news about Mel without wondering when his "people" are going to provide mental health crisis intervention to help him regain control of himself. People get into problems with perception, assumptions and judgement calls. None of us have a grounded understanding of what events occurred that set this whole crisis into motion.It is my perception that the events here didn't start over night.

Larry, you are the one that came bring some of this into balance. I have faith in you with regard to dealing with this mess.

jack   July 16th, 2010 12:11 am ET

I don't know if they are true or not, but there have been news stories alleging that he may have hit her in the mouth and maybe knocked a tooth out. If she can confirm that to be true, I would have to say that Mel Gibson crossed the line. It is one thing to be very angry. I think every one here has sometimes been angry and said things they regretted. However, if he did hit her, and they have real proof, that would be going to far, I think. That would be criminal. Let's hope that Mel didn't and they are false stories. I think we all want to like him. At any rate, I can still enjoy his acting, as that is his creative side. If these allegations of violence turn out to not be just malicious rumors, I hope he seeks help. Sounds like he really does have an alcohol problem. But, as they say, "en vino est veritas"

Dodie   July 16th, 2010 12:21 am ET

@ jack

Good evening... how are you tonight?
I listened one of the tapes. Actually, it really was not so bad. Yes, he sounds very angry... and possibly drinking, I did not hear him threatening her, he was just angry over the "box tickets" etc. If I was in her shoes, I would have just hung up the phone. Since we do not know the actual truth, it is just all conjecture.

Personally, I would prefer to discuss what is going on with the ocean floor by the Horizon well... I heard CCTV mention there was some inconsistency with the ocean floor... I am not exactly sure what that means.... Do you have any idea?

Dodie   July 16th, 2010 12:28 am ET

@jack July 16th, 2010 12:11 am ET

Well stated, Jack!

Holly   July 16th, 2010 12:30 am ET

I have heard some of the tape. Wouldn't she say somthing like you hit me with your daughter in my arms? Wouldn't that put his daughter in danger? I never not once heard her say "His daughter" I find that odd

jack   July 16th, 2010 12:31 am ET

@Dodie...Fine, thanks. Hope you are doing well. Haven't heard anything about the floor problem. I hope not. I was feeling good that they had contained the oil leak, and was hoping they would do a big cleanup now.

DS Florida   July 16th, 2010 12:31 am ET

Could the tape have been recorded on a cell phone? If it was on her lap the sound quality would be better for her voice and distant for his. Most phones are designed to cancel out background noise...

just a thought

sima   July 16th, 2010 12:32 am ET

mel Gibson says all bad things about his girlfriend now , didn't he leave his wife for her???????

Nuno   July 16th, 2010 12:35 am ET

If this domestic abuse was such a big deal how come his soon to be ex didn't report it to the police then? why now? what can be the purpose behind all this if not for money and publicity. Hollywood is full of stunt people it seems. Just wondering what's going to be the next case the media will develop and make such a big deal... money money money it's not about anything else, for both media and his ex.

chris   July 16th, 2010 12:35 am ET

Larry...truthfully who cares about the back and forth banter that is being presented on your show and within the media about Mel weither he did this our is all speculation that makes for sensational television which Americans have been so good at crippling the integrity of the press and media. What is truly note worthy is the fact that this is going on and being substantiated....similar to the movie Contact with Jody Foster...she dropped through the trasport device in a matter of seconds but recorded hours of static...did it happen.... absolutely...Mel needs to be held accountable for the unlawful actions and true disregard for humanity with his behavior weither this is true on the instances reported...he has a history already..if it walks like a duck, talks like a duck....he is a terrible acting human being–Mel Gibson....quit reading so much into this story....Larry you WERE better than this.....all the best in your retirement–sincerely 🙂

Dodie   July 16th, 2010 12:35 am ET

Thank You Deborah Hoffman... You are my hero!!!

Mrs Taylor:
Husbands are incredible liars when they get caught – I know this from my personal experience.

Since you seem to believe everything you are told, I have some ocean-front property in Arizona I would like to sell to you.

Avery   July 16th, 2010 1:10 am ET

Holy their are a lot of money grubbers here! It's not like she held a gun to his head to date her! Just because he has money doesn't mean he has to spend it on her. But God forbid a man would want to on the women he loves. You people are cynical and jaded. I'm sorry you're never had a meaningful relationship with the opposite sex before.

Mitchell Mullin   July 16th, 2010 1:48 am ET

Alcoholism is a serious problem! It does endangers more then one's self but countless others. Proverbs 20:1 reads: "Wine is a ridiculer, intoxicating liquor is boisterous, and everyone going astray by it is not wise." – NWR.

Dear Larry King, I love your program. I am sincerely honest, when I say I am heart broken to hear your leaving. I listen to your show all my life. I am touched you doing for a good reason. Many can learn from this wonderful example in such a material age. I hope before you 'throw in the towel' you'd consider interviewing Dr. Firpo Carr. That would be a once in lifetime interview, I sure.

Wini   July 16th, 2010 2:55 am ET

I am thinking along the same lines as Angela Smith. How convenient a tape recorder happened to be in the Mrs. hands locked, loaded and ready to PLAY. The Mrs. was too in control for these arguments not to be cut and pasted.. No outbursts from her ever. Must be nice to keep a level head in a heated argument. If it were me ... I'd be outta that room in a half a second. Never having time to switch on a recorder.

She's a disgrace to the REAL victims of domestic violence!

Dodie   July 16th, 2010 3:32 am ET


I love the translation behind (in vivo veritas) even though it could be used as a pun. you are a witty one! :~) Enjoy that beautiful mind of yours!

Rejino   July 16th, 2010 3:33 am ET

"Top" experts have certified...? Can we get a list of these "Experts" and their credibility?

Yes, he is a celebrity. Yes, because of it, it blows this entire situation out of proportion. This needs to be settled by a "Husband & Wife", and possibly in court. As a veteran, Mr. Gibson has every right to say what he wants when he wants to, to whoever he wants to, so long as he doesn't harm himself or anyone around him. It is every husband's right, just as it is every wife's.

What married couple out there can honestly say that they have not said things to each other out of anger or spite?

It's 3:00 am here on the East Coast. I usually don't pay attention to this kind of situation, because there are other events that warrant our attention. However...I'm bored.

I disagree with this panel about not saying anything. I think Mr. Gibson should say everything. "I was angry.", "I may have millions in my pocket, but I'm still a man.", blah blah blah...

Dodie   July 16th, 2010 3:47 am ET


yes, alcohol often brings out the truth... lol

Randy   July 16th, 2010 9:40 am ET

Mel the truth allways comes out in the end. Hang in there! To many stupid people believe anything they hear on the news.

Randy   July 16th, 2010 9:43 am ET

Cheryl let it go! Not all men are pigs!!

***   July 16th, 2010 10:03 am ET

Ahh, Dodie/Mary Jane
You seem to enjoy playing games! lol.
Those tapes are obviously coerced and the woman was not in fear for her life when listening to her calm demeanor. Mel needs anger management help, but clearly this woman has an agenda and that is extortion. The wonderful smell of money is what she is sniffing for.

Wallace White   July 16th, 2010 10:28 am ET

30 per cent of the NAACP membership is white. What per cent of tea party membership is Black? This is not about race, it is about the tea party being the new Nazis–Jews better watch out.

Jimmy (What more in the name of love?)   July 16th, 2010 11:45 am ET

The guy who has been hosting the Larry king Show the last few days. Not sure of his name but yes he does a good job. Someone mentioned that so I just wanted to say that may be a good thing.

There has been a lot of coverage on this show on The Larry King show and for the most part the shows were excellent. Well done. And a lot of opinions were giving by men and woman on the show. I cannot believe Mel smashed her in the mouth and broke her teeth. If so shy was that NOT in the news. I mean it was but in accordance with these tapes.

\Where did she get service for the teeth and how sure can it be that really took place. There is no evidence of that when the news people approached her car as seen on the television. Could be that it really happened and it was not as severe as said or it happened but by accident or a number of various situations.

I did not know Mel was a drinker and an alcoholic. Never seen him on any talk show or anything like that. It does sound like his is being framed. Sure he should never hit a woman but think about the brains that had to go into making a career like his. How would he let this happened? The Dr. Larry had on the other day had good advice.
How did things fall apart this bad. Mel's first wife did say Mel never hit her. The tapes may have been altered. You can hear the difference in tone and not just the tone. Mel's reaction to at times seems OUT OF SINK. Almost like they are on two varying subjects. And why could she have not did it in front of a counsel/lawyer or THE POLICE for that matter. Why did she have to do it over the phone.

About Mel's perception of woman. Mel is not alone. But attacking that perception is WRONG. Why? because HOLLYWOOD is all about that.
He's an actor... It's about vanity, looks and acting. Who said life is all about the act. Shakespeare. SO she gets breast implants but can she implant a good heart. And same for men too. It's not the implants. It's the heart. Just because Mel dishes these things out of his mouth does not mean they come from his heart if he is not him selves. His regular self. The one he used to be "ONCE".
Look at his track record.. Successful movie star/Actor. Marriage 30 + years. What's her record??????????? Sure because all this came out in this way it's now like he has no record.... But he is Mel Gibson.
Huge Star..

Men are pray to woman.. Thy want a good looking man and RICH.
When you get there the odds of living a normal life is GREAT. Not all actors handle it the same way. Some of them seem to manage their lives well. They are human just like anyone else.

But I think some men falls pray to this. And sometimes just like one of the guest woman guests on Larry's show a few nights ago said they blame her for everything. That's true to some extent. You know that old saying men are from Venues and men are from Mars.
When you become a couple to do thing together and I guess men see what's going on and they are nervous about the pray to their woman. Who cares if other men look at her. Tell her.. Go have him..
Don't be insecure. Your your own person. If you can't control the
other person you should not be there in the first place. Of course there are woman who marry men and right after they stop listening.
Pasture once said "Run ..... " But this is life and it's not perfect.
We make mistakes... We do it in public sometimes and so on..
And we try and fix something that was broken even before we got there. The so called baggage. The "Devil" is in the details.
Remember that saying.

Sometimes people say racist things they don't mean. No one is perfect. They say we are all the same take away the skin color. It's not true. Different cultures have different traditions. They even think different. But we can can friends and love each other. Hate produces nothing worthwhile. It's a cancer of the heart mind & soul.

It sounds like Mel suffers from emotional baggage. And the events that unfold have not been working in his favor. It sounds like a lot of wrong decisions were made . And so all of this comes out.

A few weeks ago there was nothing. Then this.

Isn't is illegal to tape someone without their concent in the first place.

When you listen to her voice on those tapes. She is Calm and composed. She seem like a professional con artist the way she manipulates the conversation. So smoothly. Very clear as they say with a really good microphone. A professional con artists is what it sounds like. We don't know the cause of the hitting. If she was con/smart even to pull of taping Mel then she is smart enough
to probably have pushed him to hit her. Why don't we have that on tape. Why did she not tape that? She could of used a cel phone.
Pocket recorder.. There everywhere these days.

Yes that oil spill is more important to the public than this. But I think seeing Mel Gibson on film. I loved Mel as an actor. Fantastic!!!
I think people just want this to work out and Mel to be a good guy and do what he was born to do. What he was doing.

I think he can recover with the right help. Perhaps one day we will see Mel on the Larry King show. Problem is they live there life in public but people having been going through these things since the beginning of time. I never heard of this girl Mel was seeing before.
From experience seeing what I see I sense. Professional Con Artist.
But that may not be the case.. but the way things unfolded and taking into account everything that what it seems like.

It's easy wiped away because of the things Mel appears to be saying on tape. Sure like others I sucked up to the celebs.. but that white books told the truth.

* I think there needs to be a renewed time for Love instead of manipulation.

* I think ins schools instead of spending three years on algebra
they should teach and preach peace and love. How can they when a good portion of them are like this anyways...But it's possible.
And yes give praise to the great teachers that really care in life. I've seen some incredible teacher sin life.

I'm not a preacher but good old common sense is gone out the window these days just as predicated it would be. I read this and think who cares.. It's just an actor.. Another celeb.. rich spoiled..

But it's public and when we thing about these things we relate it to our own experiences and life. Some of use preach but were no better.
But I have seen good men.. and woman.. great managers of life and marriage. Men & Woman need to "LEARN" how to respect each other again. And society would benefit from not judging people on vanity
and race. I think Men need to learn to be more secure and accountable to them selves than to a woman. It starts with us and the other way around to.

I hope this works out for the little baby.. And that things work out for the better.. Goldberg said on the view Mel is not a racist. I hope to hear about healing soon. There are woman who have been hit by men and I am sure there are woman who provoke and woman who do not. May depend on their upbringing. There are woman who frame men. And woman who don't do that.

Lindsey – Reads a book for advise. Made fame early. We all want that! But came form a dysfunctional family. But likely enough to have the tools and blessing to make it. But you cannot erase the dysfunction. Why it is so is very complicated but has something to do with "Accountability" and sometimes a bunch of unforeseen circumstances that is not the fault of the person at hand.
Chef Ramsey. Read about his life. What did he do. Get the hell away from it. MOVE! MOVE! But when you caught in the glory of it your pray to it. Learn from people who have experience and are great thinkers.. winners in life...Learn from actors/celebs that did manage their lives well. Once you leave home your your own person. Mom should let go.
Sure love your kids but leave them alone.

Best of luck to everyone. What more in the name of love?

I do understand Mel Gibson, as some of these girls (only some) from the Eastern Block will use any man to achieve the American Dream in an expedited way. See my story, from Wall Street to bankruptcy:
Natasha was young, good looking and also wanted to get married to Al as she wanted a green card and his assets. Natasha managed to transfer most of Al's assets to her family, and Al’s savings dwindled. One Saturday morning operation “Remove your Husband” started. Al woke up to a bright beautiful day, feeling optimistic about the future. Suddenly the Marlboro police showed up and he was accused of all kinds of bad things and tape recordings were played. An old hunting rifle was dug up from the back-yard by Natasha’s mother in order to show how dangerous Al was. Natasha and her mother requested the police to arrest Al and remove him from the house. Then Natasha goes to the police and files for a restraining order against her dangerous husband as she needed this FRO to get citizenship quickly. Later on forged checks were used in court to try to extort extra funds from Al. Then the police, grand Jury and the criminal court got involved as Natasha claimed Al placed an advertisement that she is an escort. That turned not to be true… and the story continues.SUPERIOR COURT OF NEW JERSEY

Mel has been found guilty of racism in the kangaroo court of public opinion and is being prosecuted by the media thought police.

Women who manipulate know exactly what men want. These women are young, beautiful and take very good care of their outer being as they know men think with the wrong head. If men could go past the exterior shell to the heart of the woman, they would not be manipulated. The problem is, men want a good heart in a very beautiful woman. Most beautiful women have to work at being beautiful which could mean surgery, diet, exercise, etc. For this reason, their focus is on their exterior and not interior.

The ex-wife is trying for the best child custody settlement by attempting to destroy Mel Gibson's future career as a movie actor, director and producer? Seems entirely meant for revenge and extortion. The tapes sound doctored and appear to have spliced sound bites with voices that often do not sound like Mel Gibson. The release of this expose' appears planned to directly harpoon Mel Gibson's work with Jodie Foster now slated for release.

This could backfire on the ex-wife ending up with multiple civil liability case lawsuits against her from various companies in the industry.

My take on Mel Gibson now? He's like your average male who screwed up big during his midlife crisis. But, not because of what you or I think of him, but for the same reason its a major screw up when Joe Nobody does what Mel did, because of what the family he left behind, for some young ditz home wrecker, thinks of him.

We can all sit back and judge Mel Gibson for being a fool, but we all know of someone closer to home that's been just as foolish.

I think Mel should do us all a favor and never waste another second on his wife and children for, and focus on regaining his self respect.

I couldn't care less what is going on between Mel Gibson and his psycho girlfriend...or whatever she is. You don't record people and sell it to the media.

T. McKeehan   July 16th, 2010 9:42 pm ET

I still love Mel and I am praying for him. As one very wise person said once, "He who is without sin, cast the first stone."
This lady is obviously all about the money and she appears to have plotted all of this.I do not think this excuses his actions.
I appreciate the professional way in which Larry has covered this story. We will miss you Larry!

Why even give this guy air time. He's like the little bully in grade school who doesn't care how he gets attention - as long as he gets it.

Gibson is my guy i dont care about any tape or nothing i just like him no comments

I for one believe that WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND. GIBSON left his wife of 18(!) years for a YOUNGER woman and now he's paying the price. Strange, though, that people are trying to blame HER for all this mess. But still, not strange, she is foreign, RUSSIAN, see!!
Chris Brown is still being punished for what he did to Rihanna, his whole career is in shambles.
And where is that CONGRESSMAN and all those others who were saying that MICHAEL JACKSON was getting too much coverage when he died? He was found INNOCENT and was acquitted, there was NO evidence found in NEITHER cases he was being accused of. Did he deserve the coverage? Yes he was not only the GREATEST ENTERTAINER, he was also a GREAT HUMANITARIAN!!
AMERICANS and DOUBLE STANDARDS, they go together like a HORSE and CARRIAGE!!

RE: Mel Gibson tapes

The woman is a leach. She set Mel Gibson up.

What is wrong when you stop a person and ask him or her for ID that will tell if they are illegal or not? They don"t even need a law to do that, it's called a drivers license.
