Between two divorces, his TV characters, his failed relationships and everything else we should’ve guessed that drama followed Charlie Sheen wherever he went. To prove that point, his ex-wife, Brooke Mueller, is now also making waves. According to the Aspen Times, Brooke was arrested at a nightclub in the ski town. She was charged with “third-degree misdemeanor assault and felony possession of cocaine with intent to distribute.” Â In other words – mama got some coke and she was lookin’ to partay!
Brooke posted bond (to the tune or $11K) and was released but ordered to appear back in court on the 19th of the month. We know how the family – including her twin sons with Charlie – loves to celebrate a happy, healthy traditional holiday. So we hope the court date won’t get in the way.
The producers of Two and a Half Men have finally decided that Ashton Kutcher will be the one to take over from Charlie Sheen, but it will not be in the role of Charlie Harper that Sheen made famous. Â In fact, there’s a big cloud of mystery surrounding the nature of the character that Ashton will play, or how the script writers will explain Charlie’s sudden disappearance from the storyline.
Sources close to the show say that details are still being worked out, and that the character has been evolving steadily ever since producers made the decision to bring Ashton in as part of the cast. Â Evolving into what exactly, nobody seems to know, and Ashton isn’t talking yet.
According to the latest reports coming out of Hollywood, Demi Moore‘s boy toy husbandÂ Ashton KutcherÂ is signed on and ready to replace Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men. Charlie Sheen was fired from Two and a Half Men in March after too many exhibitions of extreme behavior, including allegations he threatened to kill his wife during a domestic dispute andÂ engaged in crazy,Â drunken binge fests with various porn stars.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ashton Kutcher will reportedly play “the Charlie Sheen character” on Two and a Half Men and will be introduced “in a way that satisfies the network and the studio.”
“We are so lucky to have someone as talented, joyful and just plain remarkable as Ashton joining our family,” Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre said in a press statement.
Sources report Ashton Kutcher was willing to take quite a bit less cash than Sheen was making on the show, according to PerezHilton.com. Charlie Sheen was raking in about $1.25 million per episode, while Ashton Kutcher is reportedly willing to take half that amount per show.
Production on the 9th season of the show is expected to start this summer.
Brooke Mueller has refused a court-mandated drug test, which is part of her custody agreement with Charlie Sheen, and it may mean big problems for her later if she wants to keep her kids. Â Friends had been saying that Brooke had started using drugs again recently, and she had even been seen pawning a stereo and a watch for extra money.
So it’s not surprising that she refused the drug test, but of course it means the result gets automatically recorded as dirty. Â Now the ball is in Charlie’s court – I can’t imagine that he actually wants Â physical custody of the children, as he can barely take care of himself, but whatever move he makes next is bound to be entertaining.
9/11 conspiracy theorists are frustrated that Charlie Sheen seems to have taken his eye off the ball, and is not using his recent increase in press coverage to focus on bringing attention to the conspiracy cause. Â The 9/11 Truth Movement originally praised Sheen for speaking out loudly and frequently about his beliefs that the WTC collapse was an inside job, but recently Charlie seems more inclined to talk about prostitutes and all-night drug benders. Â Members of the 9/11 Truth Movement have appealed to Charlie to get back to talking about important issues, and have threatened him with protests if he doesn’t.
It seems like Charlie Sheen‘s old habit of paying people to love him extends far beyond the context of prostitutes – now he’s paying his audience to applaud. Â Charlie had a rough night on Friday during his first show in New York, where the audience was back to their old heckling and booing routine. Â As a result, ticket prices for the second show plummeted, and Charlie decided to improvise with the audience instead of sticking to his script.
Audience members at the second show started out hostile, but when one man asked Charlie for money, he reached into a bag, pulled out a wad of cash, and gave the man $100, asking, “will you applaud for me now?” Â The crowd erupted in cheers, and Sheen was given a standing ovation at the end.
Boy, does Charlie Sheen have his work cut out for him with his new stage show. Â He opened up the tour in Detroit over the weekend, and basically the entire thing fell apart right from the beginning. Â After some initial cheering, Charlie quickly turned the crowd against him by making jokes about how much better he was than everyone in the audience.
Many rounds of booing and heckling followed, and then people just started walking out. Â The second show in Chicago seems to have gone slightly better, with Charlie turning the change of city to his advantage by starting a “Detroit sucks” chanting campaign in the audience. Â There was no booing or people leaving the performance early, but it still seems that Charlie has a long way to go before he can declare this a “winning” tour.
