    …and water is wet, and the sky is blue, and the grass is green, and the Kardashians are unscrupulous famewh*res…

    I know this Brad Pitt picture is in the featured links section, but this is the first time I’ve ever seen Shiloh’s features come from her parents. I know everyone’s always like “mini Angie! mini Brad!” but wow, she looks just like he did when he was younger!

  3. anti-icon says:

    This is a hilarious exchange between TWO people with zero respect for women at all. It’s just that in this bitch fight, Eszterhas appears to be the winner — bringing Mel’s rants to us anew. Does anyone, anywhere in the world, doubt that Mel talks like this day in and day out? Hate both these losers.

    I bet Eszterhas has said some UGLY things about women himself. He and Mel Gibson probably bonded over their contempt for the female gender.

      Thanks for the reminder! I knew I hated Joe Eszterhas for a reason. I don’t remember what he said b/c it was back in the 90s when he wrote Basic Instinct but I know it was really misogynist vs. Ashley misogynist.

      I remember hating him more than I ever hated Mel but maybe I’m mellowing with age or maybe I didn’t think Joe Eszterhas was mentally ill just vile. I think Mel is mentally ill and anti-Semitic, knowing who his dad is he has to be. That also has to be where he got “h*be” no one born after 1950 says “h*be”.

      • anti-icon says:

        yes, Joe Eszterhas was a pig in the press, without shame, in his remarks about women. I believe he had a writing partner at the time, who was also male, but not a pig. The writing partner (whose name I forget, and I’m just using my recall) was much more press savvy and also the reason Esterhas made it big. The writing partner died….car accident, or cancer? Esterhas then had to go it alone, and that brought us Showgirls. Nuff said.

    thanks kaiser, my bulimia might return after having just eaten dinner and seeing this photo on top of page. ugh.

  8. Aiobhan says:

    I loved Ru’s new video but am sad that my fav did not make it to the final three. I am rooting for Sharon to win.

    Mel Gibson is an ass. But Esterhas is just as bad for choosing to work with him knowing that Mel Gibson is an ass. Plus he wrote Showgirls and Basic Instinct he should be used to sleezy men with inflated egos and violent tendencies.

    Tori Spelling talking about having sex a month after her baby’s birth makes my lady parts tense up in fear.

    Also, this, “I was like, ‘Well, I don’t want him to think that the sex is going downhill.’ So here you go, baby number four!” is perfection. No Tori, you can’t turn down Dean, you know what he did to the last wife who didn’t give him what he wanted….

    My answer to Eszterhas’ letter? A big fat DUH.

    • blasted1 says:

      Has Joe been living in a cave for the past 5-10 years?!? He could be the only person left on the planet who doesn’t know that Mel is a fascist. Esterwhatisname shouldn’t be writing anything for anybody; not with his illustrious track record.

  11. Stubbylove says:

    Still completely disgusted and disappointed about Gibson. He was one of the hottest, sexiest and talented actors back in the day. Now he’s batshit crazy, a boozehound, has a scaley smoker’s winkled face and has turned into his father. Sux.

  12. e.non says:

    first off — i had no idea eszterhas was still alive…

    second. what friggin b.s. — as if eszterhas doesn’t have the same degree of contempt for women that gibson has for jews.

    they are both feral pigs.

  13. Keen says:

    Can I just write-in Hilary for 2012? That would make me feel a lot better. Thanks.

  14. Jayna says:

    Joe is the scum of the earth. He sure kept working and taking that check. Mel has worked with tons of people and never had issues. I think he hides his insanity from the professional side of his life. I might actually believe Mel this time for most of the statements. But who knows?

    • ZenB!tch says:

      *cough*Team*cough*Mel*cough* here too. I think Kaiser may be too young to remember Joe Eszterhas – I barely remember why I hate him. I just felt ill reading his words and then saw the comments here and remembered I hate him because he hates me.

  15. Madison says:

    You forgot to add “AND Joe Eszterhas is a bitter mysogynist ahole” to the headline.

    Joe is bitter because he was fired from the Maccabbe movie project by Mel and Warner Bros because after a year he failed to deliver the script he had been contracted to write, that’s real truth to this story.

  16. KK says:

    Och God. Gibson is truly ass. it was proven again. Can’t stand him

  17. Maya says:

    You can’t just present Joe Eszterhas’ letter and not Mel Gibson’s response (which reads more sane).
    Anyway, both of these people aren’t what I’d call pillars of humanity. Joe is the original ‘Hollywood animal’ and Gibson, well…we all know what he is.
    I just wonder why Eszterhas, who BTW hasn’t had a decent script sale since, forever, accepts Gibson’s free hospitality and then decides to pen this letter. He knew what Gibson was going in and yes, I do think his angry letter has more to do with the rejection of his delayed script. A script that the studio didn’t even like.
    I really don’t buy the totality of the letter. Some parts, perhaps. The outbursts and so on, but I think Joe Eszterhas went a little over the top when he decided to mention Mel’s daughter and other stuff.
    Joe’s letter reminds me of the creepy letter a psycho relative of mine wrote to his wife, after he tried to grab at most of her money. He tried to basically blame her for his behaviour. In this case, I think Joe is projecting onto Mel for the fact that he wrote a shit script.

    Re: Tori Spelling’s sex-capades. She must have had a c-section, right? We TRIED it, a few weeks after I gave birth vaginally. It was rather uncomfortable for me, and I believe my husband used the term “hot dog down a hallway”.

  19. audreys says:

    I feel so.sorry for.that PC Doll, what a lack of self-respect. I see these kinds of.women in a whole different light since CAn bE become darker. As for.Mel Gibson, meh, he’s probably anti-semetic, but I never liked him anyway.

  20. foozy says:

    i’m with mel on this one!!!

  21. ZenB!tch says:

    I don’t buy the Eszterhas letter for one reason. Mel knows his Bible. As a cradle mainstream Catholic, I’ve been embarrassed by his calling himself Catholic for a while so when he did the Passion of the Christ and he quoted the, Bible I sat there with my (Protestant) Bible and checked every single quote and they were right.

    I doubt Mel is Biblically or historically illiterate enough to think there is anything about Christians in the Torah good or bad. The Torah was allegedly written down by Moses* thousands of years before Christ. *someone correct me if I am wrong.

    Also the Catholic Bible has extra books called the Apocrypha which are not accepted by most Protestants. These books are in the Catholic Old Testament which makes the Catholic Bible extra Jewish – yeah I added that to annoy Mel.

    • jc126 says:

      Just ftr, those extra books in the Catholic Bible are called Apocrypha only by non-Catholics, because they don’t believe they’re true/should be in bible – “apocryphal”.

      Estzterhas was on Today, he’s an idiot for bringing his kid around Gibson.

      Ditto to all the people who pointed out the scripts Joe E. wrote that are misogynistic pieces of crap.

  22. ZenB!tch says:

    OK I can’t remember why specifically I hate Joe Eszterhas. His wiki says he returned to the Roman Catholic Church and that he wrote a book about his newfound devotion to God and family after surviving a throat cancer diagnosed in 2001.

    So is his rant on Mel part of his repentance? If he really repented, is he as embarrassed by Mel as I am as a Catholic?

    Or is he still a lying misogynist pig?
