Mel: Oh, you’re all angry now! You know what, you f* cking deserved it!
Possibly I am wrong, but when a man continues to insist that a woman deserved to be hit, most especially when that woman was holding his 8 month old daughter - there is no hope for him.
It is possible, as Mel says in at least one of the tapes, that Oksana is a "gold digger." Let's look at the situation though, Mel is what -- 108 year old? OK, maybe not quite that old, but you get my point. Oksana is a beautiful young woman. Now I am not saying a beautiful young woman can't fall in love with an older man (my SO is older than me by a decade), but did Mel not consider that possibility back before he got a woman pregnant? You know, before he destroyed his marriage with his wife that had like 8 children with him? If he was stupid enough to fall for a gold digger (and I am not saying she is) doesn't he hold most of the blame? Shouldn't he have just looked in the mirror and thought about how he should proceed cautiously because not only is he old, but he is also a total asshole and most women would not want to be with him? I think so.
Then of course there are the threats of murder -- what psycho rant would be complete without them?:
I’ll put you in a f *ckin rose garden you c*nt! You understand that? Because I’m capable of it. You understand that?
What a man, eh? Nothing shows you are a man more than threatening a 95 lb woman.
One of my favorite weird things in these new tapes is that Mel claims to have left his wife, Robyn, not for Oksana, but because they had no "spiritual connection." Ya know, because Mel is so spiritual. Seriously, does he not get that he is sooooooooooo unspiritual that he could not possibly have a spiritual relationship with anyone or anything?
The best thing about these tapes is that he pretty much admitted to beating Oksana and knocking out her teeth (while she was holding his baby) so it should be very easy for him to be convicted of domestic violence there in CA.
Note: I took those quotes from the text portion because the few clips I have heard on TV were too disturbing for me and I couldn't listen to the actual recording.
