Charlie Sheen and his adverse allergic adventures in the Eloise Suite [Updated]
Though Sheen's publicist said the actor was in the hospital because something mixed funny with his prescription medication, emerging reports appear to place that allergy firmly in hookers-and-blow territory.

People described by TMZ as "bigwigs" associated with "Two and a Half Men" allegedly want to fly Sheen home to L.A. by private jet ASAP, though Sheen's publicist said the actor would be in the hospital until Wednesday.

Now, we admit we never read the "Eloise" series, but we're willing to bet it does not include the titles "Eloise in Rehab" or "Eloise Hires a Special Friend," and that the woman calling from the closet Tuesday morning was not the Plaza's "Eloise Ambassador."
