MEL GIBSON'S NEWEST RANT
You had to know this was coming. Screenwriter JOE ESZTERHAS said he had recordings of MEL GIBSON flying off the handle yet again. And now, one of those recordings has been released.
Quick backstory: Eszterhas had been hired to write what was supposed to be one of Mel's next movies, "The Maccabees". The movie got shelved, and it was supposedly because Joe's script wasn't up to snuff. But Joe wrote a nine-page letter saying it was Mel's fault. He accused Mel of being a Jew-hating anger ball who wanted to kill his ex-girlfriend OKSANA GRIGORIEVA and had no intention of actually making the film. He also claimed that his 15 year old son Nick recorded many of Mel's rants on his I-pod. Mel claimed most of this was untrue but now the tape is out...
The new audio was recorded during a trip to Costa Rica, there were several people present including Joe and Nick, Joe's wife, friends of Mel's and members of his staff. In the video, Mel is RAGING. He screams at Joe, quote, "Why don't I have a first draft of 'The Maccabees'? What the [eff] have you been doing?" He also goes after Oksana, saying, quote, "I am earning money for a filthy little [expletive] who takes advantage of me . . . So hurry the [eff] up!" Then he yells at all his guests, quote, "Who wants to eat? Who the [eff] wants to eat? Go have something to eat. Hurraaayyyyy!" (???)
As for his reasons for releasing the audio, Eszterhas says, quote, "The bottom line is it shows to me he badly needs help. "My interest isn't to damage him with this tape but to prevent damage being done to others, starting with Jews, including Oksana and now, I'm sure, me. "I strongly believe that unless he seeks and receives some kind of psychiatric help, someone is going to get hurt."
Rock and roll and radio legend Dick Clark died yesterday of a massive heart attack, after having some kind of outpatient medical procedure the night before. He was 82. Dick suffered a huge stroke in 2004 . . . but he continued to make brief, annual appearances on "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve" . . . which he created in 1972. Dick Clark started in radio in the early 1950s . . . as a MAIL ROOM GUY. He got his big break in 1956, getting the hosting gig on a local Philadelphia TV show called "Bob Horn's Bandstand" after Horn was fired. As "American Bandstand", the show went national and launched the careers of everyone from BUDDY HOLLY to the JACKSON 5 to MADONNA.
Dick's credits also include "The $25,000 Pyramid", "TV's Bloopers and Practical Jokes". . . which he hosted with ED MCMAHON. . . and the "American Music Awards". Over his long and storied career, Dick has won five Emmys and a Peabody Award. He's in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Television Arts and Sciences Hall of Fame . . . and he has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Just about EVERYBODY Tweeted about DICK CLARK'S passing. Including PRESIDENT OBAMA who issued a statement saying that Dick, quote, "reshaped the television landscape forever as a creative and innovative producer and, of course, for 40 years, we welcomed him into our homes to ring in the New Year.......As we say a final 'so long' to Dick Clark, America's oldest teenager, our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends . . . which number far more than he knew."
Over the weekend, RIHANNA Tweeted a picture of herself sitting on the shoulders of some bald dude at the Coachella music festival. She called it her "PARTY SPOT". And apparently, she really did party while she was up there. Because on Tuesday night, she posted another picture of herself on the guy's shoulders.
And in this one, she appears to be messing with some kind of WHITE POWDER. Right on the dude's head.
It's hard to tell what she's doing. Some people think she's cutting lines. But it looks like she's got a ROLLING PAPER in her hand . . . not something you could actually cut lines with. And there's another photo where it looks like she's SMOKING something. Judge for yourselves what you think it is..
