No Drug Testing for Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller’s Custody Settlement

Published by:

“Rehab veterans” and ex-married couple Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller reportedly excluded what we dare say may be a necessary stipulation in their custody settlement, at least considering their “history.”

TMZ shared that it was able to find out that neither Sheen nor Mueller are required to undergo drug testing, something which may not be a good idea especially in the case of Brooke, who is the designated primary care giver for the ex-couple’s twin sons.

The issue over the absence of testing in their custody settlement may stem from the fact that there have been alleged sightings of Brooke that indicate that she may not be totally rid of her drug habit. She was photographed carrying what looked like a makeshift crack pipe last Friday, although one might wonder why she would dare do that in broad daylight knowing that shutterbugs are most probably on the lookout every which way she turns. She had just finished a stint in rehab, her latest attempt at seeking help for her drug issues.

Back in April, days before entering rehab, Mueller was also caught on camera at a pawnshop in Los Angeles, trying to sell a watch and a stereo for cash, and seemingly anxious about the entire affair. The store, however, allegedly passed on the two items, as Mueller was unable to provide a valid I.D.

A couple of months later, she was once again photographed engaged in what was described as “shady moves” in Hawaii, clutching a wad of cash in her hand and speaking to random people in cars.

Charlie Sheen Admits to Steroid Use to Prep for Major League

Published by:

Charlie Sheen has been the subject of a thousand and one stories about drug and alcohol use, and just when one would think that the star has told all, he is able to let just one more cat out of the bag. Apparently, aside from snorting cocaine and drinking alcohol, Sheen also tried performance enhancing drugs, in preparation for his role in Major League, a movie that is considered as one of the pivotal points in his career.

Charlie SheenA feature on the Herald Sun shared that Sheen revealed his past steroid use in an interview with Sports Illustrated magazine. He took the drugs, Sheen said, due to “ego” and “vanity.” He was quoted as saying: “Let’s just say that I was enhancing my performance a little bit. It was the only time I ever did steroids. I did it for like six or eight weeks. You can print this, I don’t give a f—. My fastball went from 79[mph] to like 85 [127-136kph].”

While the drugs helped him perform, Sheen shared further, it unfortunately did not help boost his stamina and recovery during filming.

At that time, the actor said, he was having difficulty with the physical demands of the role, which had him pitching a whole lot: “I had to throw 150 pitches in a night and turn it around the next day. I was like, ‘Guys, do you know why they have a five-man rotation? So you can heal!’ They said, ‘Look, we’ve only got the stadium for four nights with the fans.’ I would stop at the doctor’s on the way to work for cortisone shots and anti-inflammatories.”

Brooke Muller Agrees to Regular Drug Tests to Keep Twins

Published by:

Charlie Sheen is making headlines, and his ex and the mother of his 23-month-old twin boys Bob and Max, Brooke Muller, is in the news too, as she fights for the safety and custody of the twins.

Charlie Sheen, Brooke Mueller and twinsMueller obtained a restraining order to keep Sheen away from her and their sons over violent comments he allegedly made. The order came after Mueller filed claims of physical abuse and threats. The police then took the twins from Sheen’s Hollywood Hills home. With Mueller also dealing with her own substance abuse problems, the twins are now with her mother.

Several reports say, however, that Mueller “will do anything that needs to be done to keep her kids” so much so that she is willing to undergo a drug test every week until her almost 2-year-old sons turn 18.

While Sheen keeps on calling himself a “winner” and everything he does as a “winning” thing, let us hope that their young kids don’t end up as the “losers” in this mess.

Charlie Sheen on Secret to Staying Upright While at Work

Published by:

According to a feature on The Wrap, Charlie Sheen spilled the tricks that he had up his sleeve, via a call to “The Dan Patrick Show.” The actor talked about getting through tapings of his hit sitcom “Two and a Half Men” even after pulling an all-nighter; he was also very specific about the fact that he never showed up drunk or high on set.

So what was his big secret? Furniture. Now why didn’t we see that one coming?

Charlie Sheen Two and a Half MenSheen shared: “Never been drunk, never been high on the set once… But — would show up having not slept much. Doing a network run-through and asking the director, Jamie Widdoes — huge shoutout, best guy alive — um, to move my mark a little but just so I could be next to a piece of furniture or table… so I wouldn’t fall over.”

He clarified, however, that the trick was not for everyone: “That is an expert move by a seasoned professional. I’m sorry. An amateur stays on his mark and then falls over during the run-through.”

Very clever, don’t you think?

Sheen also had some advice for Lindsay Lohan, who has been charged with felony grand theft, after allegedly stealing a necklace, which she insists had been loaned to her. Sheen’s advice to Lohan was to work on her impulse control, by trying to “think things through a little bit before you do ’em.”

Charlie Sheen Back to ‘Two and a Half Men’ by End of February

Published by:

With lead actor Charlie Sheen in rehab, and CBS Entertainment’s issuance of a statement indicating that Two and a Half Men “has been placed on production status,” there were concerns – and rumors – raised regarding the future of the show. With some reports saying that Mr. Sheen’s rehab stint may last for as long as three months, staff and crew who work with the show were reportedly worried about whether they will still get paid.

Two and a Half MenA report on ET Online, however, shared that there may be no need for the crew to worry; the star of Two and a Half Men plans to return to work by late February, at least according to Charlie Sheen’s manager Mark Burg. Burg shared to the Los Angeles Times that Sheen was concerned about the fact that the crew of the show may not get paid, and would like to get rehab over and done with as soon as possible, and get back on set. Burg is also an executive producer on Two and a Half Men.

Burg said: “Charlie would like to get back to work as soon as possible because he’s concerned about the crew… The end of February is what I’ve been told.”

There are two more original episodes of the show that will air on Feb. 7 and Feb. 14, but after that, the show will be airing reruns.

Charlie Sheen himself released a statement the day before Burg spoke with the Times, saying: “I have a lot of work to do to be able to return the support I have received from so many people… And to my fans, your good wishes have touched me very much.”

Charlie Sheen Speaks Out: “I’m Fine”

Published by:

In a previous post, we shared that actor Charlie Sheen has voluntarily sought help for his issues and checked into a rehab facility. In an exclusive report, RadarOnline.com, one of the first to break the news regarding Sheen’s decision to go into rehab, shared that the actor had sent a text message to RadarOnline Senior Executive Editor Dylan Howard, around the time that the announcement was made.

Charlie SheenSheen reportedly said the following in the message: “I’m fine… People don’t seem to get it… Guy can’t have a good time and do his job also?”

Reports of the actor’s decision to go into rehab came after news that he had landed in the hospital after a wild party with porn stars, where he reportedly spend days smoking and snorting cocaine. RadarOnline reported further that Sheen was anemic, had an elevated white cell blood count, and was dehydrated.

A friend of Sheen’s had insisted, however, that he had been taken by ambulance early on Thursday to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for a hernia. He was released from the hospital Thursday night, after receiving treatment for what doctors suspected was an ulceration, according to the report.

Sheen was said to have been convinced by his father, Martin, as well as CBS, his employer, to seek help. CBS had announced that Sheen’s hit TV show, Two and a Half Men, was going on a production hiatus while Sheen tries to work on his issues.

The text message sent by Sheen to Howard was received at 4:23 pm PT. It was unclear as to whether he had already checked into the undisclosed rehab facility at the time that Howard received the message.
