Mel Gibson has a new girlfriend named Ashley Cusato, according to reports.
The new woman in Mel’s life is an actress and stuntwoman who’s been featured as a stunt double for big stars like Bones‘ Emily Deschanel and Denise Richards.
She’s also a brown belt in Yoshukai karate and a former NCAA D-I swimmer!
The two have been dating for about a month, and things are going very well.
Mel has already introduced Ashley Cusato to several members of his family, and they’re fans. Good to hear, because he certainly went through enough with his last girlfriend.

Mel Gibson appeared on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno last night and surprisingly, he willingly brought up his most recent secretly recorded meltdown.
He joked about it repeatedly, no less.
The now-infamous Mel Gibson rant, in which he RAGED at Joe Eszterhas (and was taped in his own home, unwittingly, by Eszterhas’ son), was over the top, he conceded. Still, Mel believes his privacy was violated and his actions were “justified.” Why?
Eszterhas’ script for The Maccabees was non-existent, then awful, Mel said, proceeding to slam the screenwriter for sellingMore >
Basketball Wives star Nia Crooks has been charged with misdemeanor battery for slapping Jennifer Williams on a recent episode of the VH1 “hit” show.
A rep for the Broward County State’s Attorney’s Office says officials decided to file the criminal charge on April 10, after Williams filed a formal complaint.
If convicted, Nia Crooks faces up to a year in prison.
During the January incident, which aired on last week’s Basketball Wives, Nia can be heard threatening to slap Jennifer in the lead-up to the attack.
Jennifer then replied, “IMore >
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is weighing in on the recent Secret Service scandal after it was revealed that one of the accused agents, David Chaney, was “checking her out” on assignment protecting then-VP candidate Palin in 2008.
That’s just disturbing. Not as disturbing as the fact that Sarah Palin was once close enough to the presidency that she warranted Secret Service detail, but still. Bad taste.
Seriously, though. This is a real story.
David Chaney, one of the agents implicated in the Colombia prostitution fiasco, wrote on Facebook of Sarah Palin that he was “checking her out”More >
Amanda Bynes may have been arrested for DUI in early April, but the actress isn’t letting that legal hiccup get in the way of her Hollywood partying!
The troubled star – friends say Bynes has been lost for years – drove herself to hot spot Greystone Manor last night, where she was photographed texting behind the wheel… prior to backing her car over a curb in a red zone!
See for yourself:
Bynes did eventually make it into the establishment, which is more than can be said for the day after her arrest.
Mere hours after the actress was released on bail following her drunk driving incident,More >
Kate Major has called the police on her former lover Michael Lohan, claiming he violated his restraining order, which he claims is totally untrue … again.
This is the April 12, 2012 edition of this oft-repeated story.
Law enforcement sources say crazy Kate called the Delray Beach, Fla., police, claiming Lohan had shown up to a salon she was at (a violation of the current protective order against him) and started furiously banging on the glass windows.
Police arrived, but by that point, MiLo had already split … apparently he did not get stuck in a tree trying to flee the cops this time. WeMore >
George Zimmerman made his first court appearance since being officially charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
Zimmerman wore a gray prison jumpsuit and spoke only to answer “Yes, sir,” after being asked questions about the charge against him and his lawyer.
His hair was shaved down to stubble and he sported a thin goatee, which appeared consistent with his booking photo from the day before (below).
He resurfaced Wednesday to turn himself in after weeks in hiding. Meanwhile, a new document provided additional details on the prosecution’s case.
Screenwriter Joe Eszterhas, who was collaborating with Mel Gibson on his ill-fated film The Maccabees before claiming in a letter Mel Gibson hates Jews, says he’s got proof that he witnessed the latest rage-filled rants from the troubled star.
His teenage son secretly recorded much of it, Eszterhas says.
“A lot of the stuff is on tape,” he tells TMZ. What stuff?
He says the recordings were made in Costa Rica by his son Nick, though he would not say if the following alleged comments by Mel were captured:
- “I want to f**k her in the ass and stab her while I’m doing it.” – on his
It doesn’t appear that President Obama’s opinion of Kanye West has changed.
After Obama let it slip before an interview (below) with ABC’s Nightline two years ago that he thought the rapper was a “jackass” for interrupting Taylor Swift’s speech at the MTV VMAs, he offered up a further assessment of him this week.
The verdict? Unchanged.
Asked if he prefers Kanye or Jay-Z,” the President replied with a smile, “Jay-Z. Although I do like Kanye. He’s a Chicago guy. Smart. He’s very talented.”

Mel Gibson is earning high marks for his probation these days … unlike some people
Judge Stephanie Sautner, best known as the judge who spars with Lindsay Lohan on a monthly basis, presided over a progress report in the actor’s battery case this week.
If he could receive a grade, Gibson would be getting an A+ or 100/100 from Sautner.
It seems like forever ago that Oksana Grigorieva leaked the Mel Gibson tapes and accused him of assaulting her in one of the worst celebrity breakups ever.
The actor pleaded no contest to battery earlier this year.
He was given probation, and unlike certainMore >
