Whoopi Goldberg Hasn’t Spoken to Pal Mel Gibson

She threw her support behind Mel Gibson early on in his most recent whirlwind of scandal, but that’s about all the contact that Whoopi Goldberg has had with her longtime friend.

Speaking with OK! magazine, Whoopi said that she hasn’t been in contact with Mel since the new crop of leaked audiotapes allegedly showing the Passion of the Christ actor berating his ex-girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva. When asked by the magazine about her contact with Mel, Whoopi replied:

 I have not … I’m sure he’s taking care of what he needs to take care of.”

Still, she’s not entirely ruling out the possibility of reconnecting with Mel, saying “we’ll see” when pressed about if she had plans to keep reaching out. Whether you’re on Mel’s side or not, that’s what friends are for.
