Mel Gibson talks babies, and blame on Leno
I have to hand it to Mel Gibson, he knows how to cause a commotion, but, admittedly, I was impressed the way he treated the current situation, meaning his pending divorce and girlfriend who is pregnant, on Jay Leno last night.
Gibson, 53, said he took the blame for the divorce. “My wife and I, our marriage ended three years ago and we’ve been separated ever since then,” Gibson said. “These things happen. It’s unfortunate, it’s sad, but you know she is an admirable woman – we still got kids together. We’re friends.”
When Leno pressed Gibson by asking, “So what happened?” Gibson replied, “Look. When it’s all said and done, I did a pretty good hatchet job on my marriage myself. I’m to blame. If you’re inclined to judge, put it here.”
I find that refreshing, whether it’s true or not, and I know it won’t stop the delving into his and soon to be former wife’s privacy. But it’s nice to know he understands he was a mess up. I mean, we all do tragic things. I hope he’s just learned and changed from his “hatchet job”.
Jay Leno went on to ask about the rumored baby on the way with Mel’s current girlfriend.
“What, is she 17, 18?” Leno asked. Gibson replied that [Oksana] Grigorieva was almost 40 and “now I am going to have two women mad at me!” Leno then said, “The rumor I have heard is that you guys are going to have a child?” Gibson then confirmed, “This is true. We’re gonna have a child.”
Piling it on, Leno joked, “So that will make 29? ” Quickly, Gibson responded, “Well, actually eight. I guess I’m Octo-Mel.”
If you were thinking that it was the pregnancy that finally lead to Mel’s wife to file for divorce, here’s a tidbit for you...People Magazine says
“This [Oksana’s pregnancy] has nothing to do with the divorce. Mel didn’t even know Oksana was pregnant when they filed.”
So there ya go… I’m sure this will not be over soon. Especially with the celeb news being as slow as it has been lately.
