Mel Gibson celebrates the 10th birthday of Guatemalan formerly conjoined twins on 'The Early Show'Mel Gibson has done a lot of questionable things in the last few years, but he's also done some good. In 2002, Guatemalan conjoined twins Maria de Jesus and Maria Teresa went through a 23-hour surgery at UCLA to be separated. 'The Early Show' (weekdays, 7AM on CBS) reported that Gibson and the Mending Kids organization partnered to finance the kids' surgery, and didn't release the information of Gibson's involvement publicly.

Gibson has reportedly remained close with the twins in the intervening years, and went to their 10th birthday party recently. "You only have to talk to that little girl to realize that she has this hunger for life and this enthusiasm and this joy," said Gibson.

by Jason Hughes, posted May 6th 2011 3:16AM
Jodie Foster, 'Late Show with David Letterman'Jodie Foster and Mel Gibson have a friendly relationship dating back 15 years. Recently, they worked together on the new film, 'The Beaver,' which Foster directed. But it looks like that friendship may have taken quite a hit from his more recent antics in the public eye, based on her remarks on 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS).

Before David Letterman even finished asking her if she could defend his actions, she vehemently said, "No!"

"He's wonderful in the film," she said, carefully not saying much of anything about his character as a person. It must be an incredibly awkward position for her to be in. Of course, after the investment and work that went into 'The Beaver,' she wants it to be a success.

by Catherine Lawson, posted Sep 30th 2010 6:15AM

Oksana GrigorievaIt may be the final season, but 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' shows no signs of slowing down just yet. It's been announced that the talk show has beaten out '60 Minutes' to land an interview with Mel Gibson's ex-girlfriend, Russian singer Oksana Grigorieva.

According to 'US Magazine' Grigorieva will sit down with Oprah to talk about her rocky relationship with the movie star, with whom she has a baby daughter. The couple have been locked in a bitter custody dispute, and hit the headlines over the summer after controversial taped phone conversations between them were leaked to the media.

STEPHEN COLBERT SHOCKER in the "National Enquirer" (Sort of) (VIDEO)

STEPHEN COLBERT SHOCKER in the 'National Enquirer' (Sort of)What does it take to get into a scandalous tabloid magazine? Or, in other words, how does one end up in the pages of the "National Enquirer"? That's the question on the current 'Colbert Report' (weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central).

Stephen interviews Barry Levine -- Executive Editor of the "Enquirer." This is the cheap magazine that you see in your supermarket check-out aisle, filled with tawdry stories about Lindsay Lohan and Mel Gibson and every other celebrity like that.

Mr. Colbert is outraged that he hasn't been on the cover of the magazine yet. "What do I have to do ... to make it onto the cover? ... Who do I have to sleep with?" he asks.

By way of compensation, Mr. Levine presents Colbert with a fake personalized issue of the tabloid. "STEPHEN COLBERT SHOCKER!" it says. Good stuff; but maybe someday we can get an actual scandal about Stephen. Maybe he could go on a drug binge, or get in a feud with Jon Stewart, or something like that. Of course, these are just suggestions. An actual Colbert scandal could be much cooler than these hypotheticals.

Jimmy Kimmel LiveThis isn't the first time that 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights at 12:35AM ET on ABC) has done a commercial parody featuring a series of ommemorative plates, but every time they do the parody it's funny.

Last night Billy Dee Williams introduced the Mel Gibson series of plates. Each plate comes engraved with one of Gibson's rants from the recorded phone calls with his ex-girlfriend Oksana. You even get a lip phone!

I wonder how many people will call that 800 number.

Kilborn's 'Power Panel' Suggests Mel Gibson, Christopher Walken as New 'Idol' Judges (VIDEO)

'American Idol' Replacements on 'The Kilborn File'As you may have heard, two 'American Idol' judges -- Simon Cowell and Ellen DeGeneres -- are leaving the show after this season. And some of the other judges may be replaced as well. People! We're facing a desperate lack of 'Idol' judges! How can we solve this pressing problem?

Well, fortunately, on 'The Kilborn File' (weeknights, 7PM ET on Fox), host Craig Kilborn swooped in to save the day. During his 'Power Panel,' Craig had several guest comedians suggest possible new alternate judges. Among their suggestions? Mel Gibson and Christopher Walken. (Mel was mentioned because the show needs someone "foreign ... and mean.")

Cool! Mel and Walken! Sort of pretty terrifying. That sounds like the worst/best series ever, but we would definitely at least check it out. Also, during the suggestion phase of the show, comic Kevin Pollak did his Christopher Walken impersonation, which was pretty good. ... But for the record, we still think that this is the best Walken impersonation of all time. We're just saying.*

The ViewJudging from this clip, Whoopi Goldberg isn't a fan of Radar Online. That's the web mag that posted the phone calls between Mel Gibson and his ex-girlfriend that have created a big media firestorm. Today on 'The View' (weekday mornings on ABC), Radar Executive VP David Perel was a guest and got a lot of pointed questions (and fingers pointed at him) from Whoopi, who at one point recently defended her friend Gibson (and then backtracked a bit on it).

It seems that all of the questions that Whoopi asks are ones that she already knows the answers to.

Tracy Morgan Loves Colin Powell, Says Mel Gibson Is 'Hip-Hop'Tracy Morgan felt "overwhelmed" throughout the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner last May, he said on 'The Tonight Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC). "I see you sitting there with Michelle [Obama]," he told Jay Leno. "That was awesome. You see me wink at you?"

Well, as host of the event, Leno was somewhat preoccupied. No matter. The highlight was meeting Colin Powell. "He like knocked down two people to get to me, and he hugged me. I started crying and everything ... I said, 'Sir, I hope you don't mind if I tell people you're my biological father.'"

Morgan didn't reveal how Powell responded. But the comedian went on to give his take on the latest Mel Gibson scandal.
