Mel's doing just fine, thanks

Tbdgibson051407_2 Crazy Mel Gibson was the subject in court today, and it sounds like he’s making progress on his alcoholism. TMZ says Mad Mel’s lawyer Blair Berk went to a hearing in Malibu where the people checked in on the actor/director/producer.

“I truly believe the rehabilitation in this case is being very effective,” the judge said, after Berk assured the court Gibson was meeting the terms of his probation. The judge added he’d like Gibson to appear in court eventually for a once over, but at this point “it’s counterproductive to have him in the courtroom.”

Well, it wouldn’t be counterproductive for The Juice*, but we’ll have to wait until his Aug. 23 hearing for more.
