Mel Says He's Sorry

Mel Says He's Sorry

Looks like all those crazy remarks Mel made on Friday when arrested did happen. Now he has come out to apologize for his over the top behavior. He said,

"After drinking alcohol on Thursday night, I did a number of things that were very wrong and for which I am ashamed. I drove a car when I should not have, and was stopped by the LA County Sheriffs. The arresting officer was just doing his job and I feel fortunate that I was apprehended before I caused injury to any other person. I acted like a person completely out of control when I was arrested, and said things that I do not believe to be true and which are despicable. I am deeply ashamed of everything I said, and I apologize to anyone who I have offended.

"Also, I take this opportunity to apologize to the deputies involved for my belligerent behavior. They have always been there for me in my community and indeed probably saved me from myself. I disgraced myself and my family with my behavior and for that I am truly sorry. I have battled with the disease of alcoholism for all of my adult life and profoundly regret my horrific relapse. I apologize for any behavior unbecoming of me in my inebriated state and have already taken necessary steps to ensure my return to health."

wtf, I'm confused. I'm sure in my inbox this morning there were emails of posts by JustLikeHoney. Yet when I went to the thread, I can't see them. I always loved reading her posts, I've missed her, and then she's here when I wasn't. This sux.

I've always like Mel. I think it took guts and some great PR advice for him to immediately come forward with that very public apology. I am not certain, though, in an industry full of Jewish Executives, that he will survive this. What I do have to say, is that it is about time, that these celebrities antics are made public. They claim they are people just like the rest of us, well if that is the case, then there should be no cover ups and there shouldn't be anyone protecting their outrageous and obnoxious behavior. I say it is high time that they are made out to be who they are for all of us to see. Then maybe we wouldn't be such "fans" of theirs any longer if we found out what they were really like. And then maybe they would actually "appreciate" what fans they do have and realize that they need to treat everyone equally, not like us common folk are garbage...

EP, penniless is doubtful since Mel G is reported to be THEE wealthiest *actor* in HW due to his personal worth of an estimated $850 mil. Keep in mind that at the end of the day in HOLLYWOOD, money doesn't have a crescent star, a cross, or a star of David on it. Unless we out here choose to not pay to see his product output en mass, it won't stop the show, and as far as us not choosing to make him more wealthy, we the public have very short memories. Hypothectically speaking of course, Johnny Depp could have said the same things prior to PIRATES II, and he could have been denounced by everyone and their mother but guess what? that still wouldn't have kept it from breaking records at the box office. JMHO

i agree i hope he doesnt teach them the hatred that was handed and passed down to him. i 100% agree that he needs help but its unfair that he wasnt given the chance to form his own opinions. he should really see someone about this hatred he has but we are just as hateful towards him and judgemental. i just feel sad for him. i feel bad that his father is sooooo hateful and handed that right down to mel. its a shame cause he could have done so much positive for the world instead he is mad and hateful...seriously its just horribly sad and im grateful i wasnt brought up like he was.

I agree. It is very hard to rise above the trash one is taught when one is young...not that one shouldn't try like hell, but it is hard. I just hope that he hasn't taught his brood of kids these things. & If hea has, well, I hope they see how hateful it is

it says something that he apologized and didnt blame anyone but his own self for what happened. imo he is a stand up guy. his father just proved that he was raised a certain way and raised mel a certain way and he believes certain things because of how he was raised. what he said about jewish ppl and culture was horrible and unexcusable. on the other hand he was raised his entire life taught certain things and felt certain ways on certain issues. im not making excuses for how he feels or what he says, but if he felt bad about what he said and knew it was wrong and actually apologized, than more power to him on trying to overcome the feelings he knows are wrong. once again im not trying to start a war and i dont agree with what he says im just trying to point out what i feel is obvious. it is hard to separate what you believe than what your entire family believes and taught you as a child, a young adult and as an adult. its sad that he was taught such negative things and raised believing and taught such prejudice but he didnt make up the things he said he just repeated what he had been told his entire life. im not trying to disagree or offend im just saying my opinions so please forgive if this comes off offensive, its just hard to write things instead of speak them.

One sat he told me to pack my bags that we were going away for the weekend! I was like 'what??' anyways we got in the car and we drove to another town and he took me to a 5 star hotel and we stayed in a beautiful room with its own pool! I was in shock and didnt know what the occasion was (i did suspect he might propose but i didnt think about it just incase he didnt then i would of been upset) so he took me to dinner down by the pool, still nothing so i thought if he was gonna propse he would of done it by now, so went back up to the room and i was feeling a bit bumbed out that he didnt so i went to take my jewlery off and i turned around and he was on one knee holing a ring asking me to marry him! I was in total shock i dont think i said yes i just cried and i couldnt get over it! The ring was perfect, marquise shaped with diamonds on the side, thinking about still takes my breath away!!
