Maybe he should think about his disagreements with Oksana and remember the kids once in a while. It's nice to see him civil(If he'd just stopped for the paparazzi outside the theater in Cannes...people would have thought better of him...he should listen to spin doctors more often).

@St Murphy You just hate Guatemalan's in their own country! Mel can go where ever the hell he wants to. I think it's wonderful he's helping people where he is also interested in rainforests and pyramids.

I'm especially glad he isn't bothering to worry about that nasty bitch who tries to harass him 24/7, her name starts with an O. The best thing he can do for Lucia is get full custody! Helping kids starts at home :-)))

i totally agree with you on his personal life but i am tired of all the save the children fed aid to other countries when if you look at it we as a country need just as much if not more help.it just happened to be him doing it at this time.if i was a racist i would not have saved black children hasidic jewish children perform CPR on hispanic children run into burning buildings regardless of color,race,creed or sexual preference..i am however an american.why not all the text help from the red cross like the tsunamis and earthquakes in other countries?i do also have a 10 yr old son and i have him whenever i am not on duty.

OK, I will try this again, perhaps TMZ is offended by my quoting the bible:
Matthew 6:1-4
Take care not to perform righteous deeds in order that people may see them; otherwise you will have no heavenly recompense from your heavenly Father.
When you give alms, do not blow a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets to win the praise of others.
Amen, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you give alms, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that almsgiving may be secret. And your Father who sees in secret will repay you.

@St Murphy Why thank you. How do you know Mel hasn't helped tsunami victms in Japan, tornado victims and children here in the states? He's free to help when and where he wants to. He doesn't ever do press releases, he is "caught" by the press at times. Either way he's under no obligation and does it anyway, despite his fortune dwindling thanks to the greedy

the whole point is..when something needs to be done in another country..we are always the first ones to jump up and help but in the long run we are also not doing the same for lets say,,,joplin missouri or massachusets with all the hub bub and special red cross aid by text etc etc like the tsunamis and quakes..we do not take care of our own before others no matter how you look at it.

@Lilac Lay off with the holier than thou crap, please. Even the devil quotes scripture. 99% of what Mel does for charity work isn't reported. Just a guess but a good one

Why don't y'all get off the computer and celebrity tabloid sites and go help some kids if it means so much to you?

I absolutely hate how TMZ will hold a comment, never send it to your mailbox, and then it shows up after you post another one "just in case". Oh, well on TMZ sometimes it's not your fault when you come off repetitive.
