Trust me it sounds like Mel Gibson is playing with his personel insturment when he is yelling at that woman over the phone. THE WAY HE SAYS I NEED A WOMAN and he is screaming says it all.

Oh no, now Mel is in for it, the infamous tapes are being handed over to the big boys and girls in blue. Poor Mel, he is going to have to face himself and see what he has become an abuser.

This is pointless, Gibson is friends with the Sheriff's department. When he was exposed for saying "sugar tits" and what have you, the cop who spilled the beans is the one who got in trouble because his superiors were trying to cover it up. THey like Gibson because he did free commercials for them a number of years ago, and they've been known to look the other way when it comes to his dirty deeds. One could say Gibsons arrogance when it comes to misbehaving is due to the belief he thinks he's above the law.

If the police do not have them clearly Mel does not have the tapes then how did they leak if Oksana says she did not leak them? Oksana knew Mel's hair trigger temper. We all did! Boy did she play him when he was ready to leave her!

Oksana may find herself on the bad side of this if Mel's first reporting Oksana carrying the baby like a "ragdoll". I'm waiting for Mel's side of this as it is possible he was protecting the child from Oksana during this alleged altercation. Besides, if Mel was a danger to his child, why didn't Oksana fail to protect the baby during the custody negotiations?

This is all about hurt, money, betrayal and set-up. Too bad Mel couldn't see he was being set up.

I fear for Mel. I think this is the beginning of a very long stint in jail... On one hand I feel like he deserves it... on the other hand I think he was totally set up. At any rate it is sad!!

We keep hearing the word "tapes". Then Radar Online says Oksana turned over DVD's. Perhaps there are tapes AND DVDs, with the DVDs made from the tapes. While the tapes/DVDs sound authentic, this is Hollywood and I won't put anything past any of them with the resources they have. Too bad it isn't video.

We also get a taste of Oksana's true self when she almost loses it. She pulled back when she realized she was on tape. I wonder if someone was there coaching her.

Of course she will sound like the victim and the rational one when she is the one recording the conversation.
The fact that she recorded this and fed it to the media shows just how evil she can be.
The truth is....we do not know both sides of this story.
