Passion of the Crisis

Everyone's 'favorite' "If-You're-Different-Than-Me-I-Hate-You" Ranter is back!

Mel Gibson is currently filming for his role as The Beaver, but after his performance in a series of recorded crazy phone calls with the mother of his daughter, it sounds more like he's The Beater. (I'm not even going to bother writing some of the things he said here. It's really a "must listen" to get the full impact.)

What I really can't understand is how Whoopi Goldberg can defend him: "I know Mel, and I know he's not a racist," Whoopi on 'The View' on Monday, seeming both earnest and cautious to weigh in. "I have had a long friendship with Mel. You can say he's being a bonehead, but I can't sit and say that he's a racist having spent time with him in my house with my kids. I don't like what he's done, make no mistake."

Uhhh... then again, this is the same person who said Roman Polanski's actions weren't "rape rape."
Anyway, I love it when these types of phone calls get "leaked." Remember Pat O'Brien's?:
Or how about Alec Baldwin's:

Ah, yes, all nice reminders as to why I'm glad I do technology PR and not entertainment. (Although I'd make an exception for the adorable Betty White)
