Someone who posted a comment on that site couldn’t help but make this a political issues.

Here’s the comment...


Mel Gibson is not moving out of the USA to avoid bad publicity. And he’s not “disgraced” in my mind as much as Obama and his Democrat Party.

He’s leaving because of the Obama Economy and the complete lack of opportunity in Hollywood due to the political correctness of the Democrat State and the taxes that kick in in 2011. Too bad I can’t go, but I’d rather stay here and fight the Democrat Party Police State anyhow. This is my country. God Bless the USA (and Mel Gibson)!

Looks like Robyn is one smart woman and knows a good move when she sees one. Too bad Mel can’t say the same thing about himself.

I defended Mel on many occasions when he was under attack - but there is no defending him this time. He has stepped way off my planet. I listen to most of the tapped phone calls and all I heard was a raving lunatic.

That's pretty heart-warming. And they had called Oksana a "home wrecker." /s

His wife is a class act!....what kind of ex-wife, spurned for another woman.... takes her ex-husband out of harm's way when the world has turned against him.

If this is all true, she must have a very forgiving, compassionate heart.

She can't be doing it for the money....she already has that...

..she must be truly selfless & full of mercy.

I'm glad to see he is back with his ex-wife. He never should have left her for this gold digging pig. When the relationship fell apart she went for the gold. I'd bet the pregnancy was planned too.

This entire relationship was about money from Oksana Grigorieva perspetive with a baby to cement the relationship. Oksana Grigorieva was ugly on the inside and the outside.

Ask yourself this. How many times has a spouse or loved one TAPED YOU when your were angry and also drunk? Do you really think Oksana Grigorieva would be that CALM and prim in her responses as she TAPED Mel? She pushed Mel's buttons. Mel is thin skinned and took the bait. Se baited him. SHe set him up when he was drunk. She probably looked the part of a whore to get him going. We are not hearing all of it or SEEING what provoked this mess.

It wasn't enough for her to clean up fininancially. She wanted to ruin him when the relatiosbhipe went south.
Gee, I wonder how those tapes were released? Part of their agreement was to "never have those tapes see the light of day". If she didn't do it directly, she had someone else intervene and release those EDITIED tapes. More is coming out on that.

Those Obama fans, have YOU ever described Obama in a verbal manner that you woudn't want taped and aired in public? I admit, I have. Do I regret it? No. The truth isn't always pretty or politically correct. I also have my doubts about the "assault" on her teeth and baby. Time will tell and the truth will prevail.

This is pure gossip and they didn't even get it right. Old Mill Farm is in Greenwich, CT. It's also been for sale since 2007.

Mel Gibson Slashes Price on Greenwich Estate by $4.5 Million - September 10th, 2008

Gibson, who has had his Greenwich estate, Old Mill Farm, on the market for over a year, recently dropped the price from $39.5 million to $35 million.

Beautiful pics at link.

Mel's not the first man to get tangled up with a gold-digging much younger woman. Other than the disgraceful adjectives he used, what he called Oksana was likely the truth.

With the love and support of his family, I pray Mel will find his way back.

The story has been corrected. It originally stated he would return to his “native Australia” but now accurately indicates he was born in the USA. I find it interesting that Gibson lost the Aussie accent he had when he first returned to the United States, probably by design.

Without the two of them it would have been a mediocre movie at best. But those two performances made it worth watching.

Although my friends son is married to a Russian lady. One of the most beautiful blonds I have ever met. Hard working, good family girl and a 22 inch waist when she was married.

I do not understand Gibson. If you are going for young, pick someone beautiful as well. This skank is a troll.

I hope he gets back with Robyn. He mah find her as comfortable as an old pair of Berks’. Which is a good thing. Great actor and producer. Hope he gets help

You're absolutely right. Particularly as he'll have nothing to do there. The man is a border collie, he has to work at something he considers valuable or he'll revert to alcoholism and destructiveness.

“I listen to most of the tapped phone calls and all I heard was a raving lunatic.”

You have noticed that the so-called tapes have apparently been altered? Possibly even faked entirely? I think it too early to decide who is at blame, just yet. Wait for it...

So far, nobody seems to have been able to listen to the original recordings. Just posted excerpts. One expert who examined the posted material says there are a number of "artifacts" that indicate tampering, including dropouts, fades, and transients. He also said until someone gets to examine the originals, no one CAN know what was really said, or if Mel is really the one saying it.

Mel needs to take a break. Even if it is altered he needs to understand his battles and fight them on fair footing. Someone is manipulating his words and that source can be directly linked to who he was communicating with. The reasons seem quite sinister. I hope he can find himself and his strength to fight back.

I find it interesting that Gibson lost the Aussie accent he had when he first returned to the United States, probably by design.

You imply that his dialect adjustment is a smoking gun indicating false character. While this charge may on some level be aimed at the entire acting profession -- and its audiences -- it doesn't make sense as a means of "piling on" to an actor when he's down, since his profession demands a great ear.

Some people are just natural "language people", experiencing language the way a musician experiences music -- with the ability to hear the perfect pitch and the subtleties that each language contains uniquely. Other people maintain their original accent for life, even if it is broken English and they have lived in this country for decades.

The Australian actor Simon Baker speaks the two dialects in public -- American on his hit show "The Mentalist" and Australian in chat show appearances, but is gradually losing his Aussie accent the longer he stays here.

I personally modified my southern accent when I went to college at age 17 in a northern state and was teased over it -- something Gibson undoubtedly encountered if he returned to America at age 12. I adopted what I call "television announcer" as my dialect, and stayed with it as long as I was working professionally. When I lived in an Italian-American neighborhood, it was also useful to learn the Sicilian-inspired dialects you hear on The Real Housewives of New Jersey for dealing with local officials, proprietors and neighbors. Now having retired to Maryland, I'm reverting to Marylandese for casual conversation. I'm also workmanly fluent in several other European languages and use them in my retirement job dealing with the public. "Interesting"? Or just a practical adaptation?

Yep. This would be a good time to get his ducks in a row, and maybe do a little fence-mending with his soon-to-be-Ex-Wife, who seems to still love him, at least a little. Maybe he can do something good with that.

Alcoholism is a family- and a character-killer, it's true. At best, he could add vitality to the Australian film industry. But the road ahead must contain true rehabilitation.

I saw a most intriguing interview with the gay and Jewish Harvey Levin, the lawyer and astute businessman behind the showbiz gossip enterprise TMZ. He was surprisingly compassionate about the Gibson meltdown, implying that Gibson is experiencing a deep self-loathing as he realizes just how badly he has blown it with his family over a younger woman who turns out to be a shark.
