the stories were "leaked" before he made a slur on television. i think its reasonable to assume that there is at least some truth in them.
i remember watching him on oprah and i wanted to like him. he seemed to overcompensate for inadequacies, but have his heart in the right place. he doesn;t seem to hold back of himself, and on the set, just like when working in theatre (worked backstage for six years) you must keep yourself contained in order to keep peace on a boiler room situation.
and it definitely fits with his profile to assign blame to everyone except himself. it's too bad. really. i like his passion, but i don't appreciate his spewing himself onto other people with no regard for their feelings.
