Oh Mel, what have you done now?

Just when it looked like Mel Gibson was finally getting his act together, all this drama went down between him and his ex-girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva. She claims she has a tape of Mel screaming all sorts of nasty things at her. Among the remarks is this gem: "You look like a f--king pig in heat, and if you get raped by a pack of n-----s, it will be your fault." Now, as soon as news broke last year that Mel was dating this woman, I had a bad feeling about it. She just looked like bad news to me. Now that they've split up, it seems obvious that Oksana is doing everything she can to paint Mel in a bad light, most likely because she believes that it will somehow result in her getting more money out of him to support their lovechild. However, if these remarks really were made by Mel and it can somehow be proven, I wonder what's next for the actor? Regardless of what a piece of work Oksana may be, comments like the ones heard on the tape are inexcusable. Mel has finally been making some decent movies again and it looked like he was going to pull a Britney Spears and get his life back on track. I don't know if the public will be willing to forgive another giant misstep like this, though. Another question I want to ask in this case: why did Oksana feel the need to tape the conversation in the first place? Sounds a little fishy to me, unless of course it is because her previous allegations that Mel physically assaulted her actually have some merit, and she was just trying to protect herself going forward. We'll see how all this plays out.
