Good thing the cameras are there. It's hard to manipulate the public without them.

And just to think --

One year ago the piano player was endlessly giving interviews about all of her own charity work -- on Mr. Gibson's money -- and somehow none of these charities have any kinds of records of her 'work'?

He needs to quit smoking. He looks like a corpse.

Well, I hope that all 20-somethings can retain their looks at 55 without surgery. Good luck to that.

Mel Gibson has made mistakes; however, which one of us can admit to never having made a hurtful mistake – large or small, especially while angry or under intoxication. He’s human and has the same weaknesses as the rest of us. He’s not obligated to prove his self-worth to us; he’s only obligated to himself. He doesn’t owe us anything. Regarding where he chooses to do his charitable work – who cares?! We are one human race! That’s what is wrong with society and this world, which is the downfall of societies – TOO MUCH DIVISION: race, religion, money, power, etc. Volunteer and or donate money yourselves to whatever charities you deem deserving instead of criticizing him where he chooses to do his.

Anyone who has followed Mel's career will know that he has done amazing charity work without a lot of fanfare throughout the years. He is just doing what he has always done, nothing's different.

Mel is a good person, I don't care what others say about him. Oksana charity work? Yeah, only to herself. Anyone that helps children has a good heart. Did Oksana do any charity work before meeting Mel Gibson? Did she even work at anything in her life, other than being a pro at getting money from other people?

With everyone in the pics but Mel being Mexican, that's a local hospital alright.

Umm - Mel is in Guatemala - not Mexico. Talk about racist. Are all Hispanics Mexican to you??

And, to everyone in a tizzy because stars don't give at home. They actually do - along with the rest of us. It's called taxes. We all pay for programs that help those in "need," such as welfare and food stamps. Other countries, such as Guatemala, do NOT have programs funded by taxpayers - or anyone. I give Mel credit for doing what he can for children that are truly in need.
