Malibu Mel got a thumbs up today from the judge overseeing the alcohol rehab program he was ordered to take after his drunken anti-Semitic outburst at police last year. “I truly believe the rehabilitation (in) this case is effective, and I don’t want to do anything to interrupt that,” said Malibu Superior Court Judge Lawrence J. Mira, explaining why the actor was not asked to appear for today’s progress hearing. “I know his extensive participation in a self-help program — and I should note he has done extensive work, beyond which was required,” Mira added.
