Was it coincidence or a comment that you put the Tom Cruise note right after the Hobbit audition? Inquiring minds want to know.

"Is Mel Gibson mentally ill? No, that isn't a rhetorical question"

Yeah, I was discussing this with someone last night. He shows signs of early onset of dementia. He needs to get a CAT scan, no doubt about it.

mat00, which story on Story Lab? The most recent ones I found all had only 0 or 1 comments. Gotta live up to my WaPo soubriquet, ya know!

"Oprah Winfrey makes guest list for Chelsea Clinton wedding."

Who wouldn't want to invite Oprah to their wedding? I'd probably put a new car on the registry along with a few other of Oprah's favorite things....

In the realm of Mel Gibson speculation, dementia can also be brought on by alcoholism. However, unless he also has memory loss, I think the bipolar diagnosis makes a lot of sense.

Elias, I can't count. Polanski belongs in jail with Lilo or Stamos does? Or both? A threesome, maybe?

Posted by: reddragon1 | July 14, 2010 10:00 AM | Report abuse

"Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston get engaged." So Sarah *is* running in 2012.


"Is Mel Gibson mentally ill? No, that isn't a rhetorical question..." No, it pretty clearly *is*.


LiLo, you should be getting ready for jail. There will be time to play matchmaker for dad later.


"Piers Morgan poised to replace Larry King." Somehow, I suspect "The Piers Morgan Game" as played on Kevin Pollak's Chat Show will be a lot less fun than "The Larry King Game."


"Roman Polanski's lawyers call for misconduct inquiry." Well, he did flee the US to escape sentencing and --- oh, you mean the people PROSECUTING that...?


"John Stamos defense attorneys deny he is promiscuous drug user as actor takes stand during extortion trial." Meanwhile, critics also deny he's an actor.


Bret Michaels engaged: you think you had a headache BEFORE, pal...

Thanks, mat00! Nothin' like a big ol' car-wreck to rubberneck at in the morning, so to speak.

Hey, it is Bastille Day today. Wasn't something significant suppose to happen?

Mel get run over by a maurdering herd of drunken elephants? LiLo being fitted with her new orange apparal? Wee Tom not wearing lifts in his shoes. The Lindberg baby being found?

"Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston get engaged" -- First comes baby, then comes love, then comes marriage with built-in baby carriage. Ah, young love today.

"Lindsay Lohan lashes out at Joan Rivers on Twitter" -- How is this jailbird still tweeting? Does minimum security now include wi-fi? Honestly.

"Piers Morgan poised to replace Larry King" -- That lighted map behind Larry will be replaced by a giant X that Piers can activate whenever he tires of a guest.

"Roman Polanski's lawyers call for misconduct inquiry" -- Irony alert! Pot, meet Kettle. Kettle, Pot.

"John Stamos defense attorneys deny he is promiscuous drug user" -- Sporadic maybe, but promiscuous? Never. Please, don't insult Blackie Parrish.

"Tom Cruise still locked in for 'Mission: Impossible IV'" -- It's going to be a short film. (Oh come on, like you weren't already thinking that.)

"Oprah Winfrey makes guest list for Chelsea Clinton wedding" -- Oh Chelsea, what were you thinking? Now you're going to need that metal detector / security set up to frisk everyone for cell phone cameras and trust me it's not in that tight budget you discussed with Mom and Dad. Look what you've done! Now you'll have to replace the band with an iPod and the white tablecloths with vinyl and....

(Side note: My father-in-law went to a wedding at Oprah's house in Santa Barbara. The stories.... he did say Oprah was delightful and gracious though. Go figure.)

byoolin, by 2012 Bristol and Levi could be married, then divorced. Or still engaged.

Mickey Dolenz too. I so cannot wait to see MegaPython v. Gatoroid. (Yes, I am being serious. No, I am not as crazy as Mel Gibson and Tom Cruise put together).


See, Levi just grew up and realized saying what people wanted to hear was not a good thing.

Thanks for that threesome image Reddragon. Off to the Island store for industrial strength brain bleach.

Hey, little Bristol, shotgun!
It's a nice day for a . . . white wedding.

Maybe they can get Billy Idol to sing at the reception.

Sas, Nosy, in that family, it's possible that by 2012 Trig could be someone's baby daddy.

In honor of Bastille day we should all have wine with lunch.

Is Gibson bipolar? Yes

and no.

reddragon, Wouldn't LiLo be too old for Polanski anyways?

Posted by: DorkusMaximus1 | July 14, 2010 11:24 AM | Report abuse

Dorkus,

Just thot of that too. But Polanski is older too, and may be not so um, enthusiastic as he once was. Also, since the eyes are the second thing to go, he may not notice.

Dementia, alcoholism, bipolar disorder ... how about "he's just a real jerk"?

Palin family trivia question: which one is Trig and which one is Tripp? And is there a Trapp too?

Presumably Mel learned a lot of that hate-speech from his fascistic, Holocaust-denying father. Problems like alcoholism, bipolar disorder or dementia probably just keep him from censoring his words appropriately. They may be an explanation, but not an excuse.

"Traps" are a family value for Sarah. She, her mother and Bristol all got pregnant out of wedlock, although Sarah and her mother got married before their babies were born.

Seriously? I never knew that. Dang, maybe the Palins should change their last name to UberHypocrites.
