Charlie Sheen: Where has all the crazy gone? [Poll]

Charlie Sheen

Charlie Sheen, where have you gone? No, not Charlie Sheen the person; we're talking about Charlie Sheen the phenomenon.

Sheen's been doing the rounds to promote "Anger Management," his new FX sitcom, and he's been doing it with a degree of decorum that's pretty much no fun at all, compared with his winning warlock presentations that ran through the early part of last year. It was early last March, in fact, when he lost what was then the highest-paying gig on TV, lead actor in "Two and a Half Men."

These days he's acting like a grown-up, though he did note to Matt Lauer on "Today" on Thursday that "looking like a real insane wordsmith was fine." (Maybe because he wasn't on the outside looking in?)

He's doing rather kind parodies of himself in an ad for Fiat, and in a "commercial" with Jimmy Fallon (see it below) in which he's been cloned, and gets confused about taking a call from an old friend -- and is even confused about which version of himself is the real one.

"At the end of that whole episode I thought, 'Oh crap, what have I done," he told Wendy Williams on Friday. Fortunately, he found a "very forgiving fan base" (not to mention forgiving studio execs, which Williams did bring up).

Of his fans, Sheen said, "They know that I'm a guy that just deals with the truth and admits when I'm wrong.

"And that situation" -- his firing -- "was something where I wasn't wrong." OK, so, maybe there's some of the old fighting Sheen left in there.

"No one seems to want to remember," Sheen told People. "They all talk about 'tiger blood' and 'winning' and everything. But no one talks about what I was so upset about."

Oh, we remember, Charlie, we remember. So tell us -- are we the only ones who miss Meltdown Sheen?

Charlie Sheen apologizes to Ashton Kutcher -- in character [Poll]

Charlie Sheen

Charlie Sheen, who last week slammed Ashton Kutcher and "Two and a Half Men" as 'completely adrift," has issued an apology to his replacement on the hit sitcom. Oddly, however, he signed it with the name of his killed-off "Two and a Half Men" character, Charlie Harper.

The apology, delivered via Twitter in the 7 a.m. hour Tuesday, reads as follows:

Dear Ashton-
My bad.
I was disrespectful to a man doing his best.
I got excited and threw you into a crossfire.
The rest of my statement I stand behind.
You, however, deserve better.
Safety in your travels good sir.
- The "late" Charlie Harper

It's all a bit more tempered than the opinion he delivered calling in to "TMZ Live" Thursday:

"I'm tired of lying," Sheen said on the webisode. "I'm tired of pretending the show doesn't suck. I'm tired of pretending Ashton doesn't suck. I'm tired of pretending that they're not completely adrift. Because when you take away the anchor of your show, which they stupidly did, you go adrift. And these guys are approaching salvage vessel."

As Show Tracker pointed out last week, that "salvage vessel" is doing better in the ratings this season than it did the last few years with Sheen.

Sheen -- who'll be seen next in the sitcom "Anger Management" on FX -- blamed the writers, saying of Kutcher, "I feel bad for him. He's saddled with such bad writing. ... There's just nothing about it that's fresh or interesting. I forget that it's on the air."

What say you -- should this apology be accepted? Or should Kutcher wait to see if he can offer constructive criticism on "Anger Management" instead?

Denise Richards swims with dolphins — and Charlie Sheen

Denise Richards, with daughters in June, is vacationing with ex Charlie Sheen

Denise Richards is spending a holiday vacation swimming with the kids, the dolphins — and ex-husband Charlie Sheen.

Sheen, Richards, their daughters and Richards' newly adopted daughter, Eloise, 6 months, are vacationing together, and the goodwill couldn't be any rosier.

Richards posted a photo of sky, rocks and water with the caption "Beautiful..." on her WhoSay account, where she commented Wednesday morning: "Great morning with the kids ... swam with the dolphins... as @charliesheen would say... it was #epic"

Tuesday, she said: "Fun in the sun today... can't get the girls out of the water! Eloise is loving the pool too."

Then, with a photo of Sheen and their daughters: "Dinner with the family... good times!"

Sheen also posted on WhoSay that it was a "modern" family vacation. Wednesday morning he said: "... just when we thought the trip couldn't get any better ... we met Nuna ... !!"  This was accompanied by a picture of the foursome and a chummy-looking dolphin.

When Sheen and Richards vacationed with the girls in New York a while back, Dad wound up having an unfortunate meltdown. And when we checked in on Sheen most recently, he'd accidentally tweeted his phone number to the public while trying to get hold of Justin Bieber.

Perhaps Bieber missed out on an invite to go swimming with dolphins?

Brooke Mueller, Charlie Sheen's ex-wife, is arrested in Aspen

Brooke-mueller

Brooke Mueller, Charlie Sheen’s ex-wife, was arrested over the weekend after allegedly assaulting a woman at an Aspen, Colo., bar on Saturday night. She also was found to be in possession of at least four grams of cocaine, police said.

Though the couple had a tumultuous relationship and Sheen has had his own troubles with Aspen police, the actor was nowhere near Mueller Saturday night; he had tweeted from Cartagena, Colombia, on Friday.

According to a source, Mueller, 34, was at the bar Belly Up when the alleged assault occurred. When notified of the incident, police tracked Mueller to another bar, Escobar, where a source said she arrived noticeably intoxicated just after midnight. When police arrested her, she reportedly yelled out, "I run this town!"

Mueller, a former real estate investor, was booked and released on $11,000 bail. She will appear in court on Dec. 19.

Sheen was arrested in Aspen on Christmas morning 2009 for allegedly beating Mueller, who was married to him at the time. She was the one to call 911, saying that Sheen was drunk.

Sheen and Mueller, who divorced in February of 2011, had a lengthy custody battle over their of 3-year-old twin sons. Sheen went to court in April to ask for full custody of the children after Mueller entered a rehab clinic for drug use. Both are required to pass drug tests as part of their custody agreement.

It was unclear who had custody of the sons at the time of Mueller's arrest.

Charlie Sheen's $100M lawsuit put out of its misery (at 75% off)

Chuck Lorre and Charlie Sheen in 2005

Charlie Sheen, Warner Bros. and Chuck Lorre have signed a deal to put Sheen's $100-million lawsuit out of its misery. The man who was once TV's highest paid actor sued his former bosses in March, just days after he was fired from "Two and a Half Men."

With the heat of battle behind them, a 75% discount appears to have won the day: The Los Angeles Times last week broke the news of a $25-million Sheen payday on the horizon.

Beyond a statement from Warner Bros. saying that those involved "have resolved their dispute to the parties’ mutual satisfaction," nobody had much to say Monday, according to Company Town. And that's probably for the best, reflecting on the kinds of things Sheen the Tiger-Blooded Warlock had to say back when he was talking nonstop to anyone who would listen.

Sheen was fired from his "Two and a Half Men" gig on March 7, via an 11-page termination letter that in the Ministry's opinion was one of the greatest legal reads of all time.

In other Sheen news of a time-to-play-nice nature, Charlie was spotted Saturday dining with brother Emilio Estevez and parents Martin and Janet Sheen at Ninethirty at W Los Angeles-Westwood. Everyone ordered the salmon, an onlooker said, except for Papa Sheen, who went wild with a burger, hold the onions.

Denise Richards not coveting Charlie Sheen's maybe-money

Denise Richards

Denise Richards doesn't seem to be in any rush to make any new bucks off Charlie Sheen.

Richards, who has two daughters with the former star of "Two and a Half Men" and in June adopted an infant daughter, Eloise, already receives $50,000 a month in child support from Sheen. Brooke Mueller, who also has two daughters with the actor, is having her similarly sized support money sent directly to her from his Warner Bros. paychecks, to guarantee its arrival each month.

However, with Sheen reportedly close to a $25-million payday from Warner Bros., TMZ managed to elicit a "Not my money" comment from Richards, who was out shopping when the camera lens was shoved in her direction.

And after Life & Style reported that Richards had almost accepted a $100,000 offer to appear as one of the exes in the Charlie Harper funeral scene on "Men," a source told E! News that she never would have taken such a gig. "Charlie would have gone ballistic," the source said. E! also confirmed that an offer had been made.

So much for the L&S "insider" who said it was a difficult "no" for Denise, as "she really wants to get back into TV." Though, actually, that person also mentioned that "Charlie would have gone crazy." Are we seeing a theme here?

About Charlie's pending Warner Bros.' bucks: The $25-million deal reported Tuesday by the Los Angeles Times would close the door on the dispute over his firing, removing the need for arbitration in his $100-million lawsuit against his former employer.

Sneak peek: Charlie Sheen roast is done, ready to be served

Charlie Sheen roast preview

Like one of his own torpedoes of truth, Charlie Sheen is barreling down the promotional pike for his upcoming Comedy Central roast.

Taken to task by the likes of Kate Walsh, roastmaster general Jeff Ross and newcomers including Anthony Jeselnik, Sheen was a good sport at the taping Saturday at the Sony Pictures lot in Los Angeles.

"How much blow can Charlie Sheen do? Enough to kill two and a half men," cracked Jon Lovitz, his being among the mildest of countless references to Sheen's drug use, his predilection for escorts and his history of violence. 

In first-look video from the special, to air Sept. 19 on Comedy Central immediately after CBS' reboot of "Two and A Half Men" starring Ashton Kutcher, Ross takes a jab at Charlie's family.

"You make your own father ashamed that he shares the same fake name as you," he said.

What's not to roast? Our pals over at Show Tracker have a peek at Sheen's entrance.

Betty White voted America's 'most trusted' celebrity

Betty White voted 'most trusted' celebrity by Americans in a new Reuters poll, beating out Denzel Washington and Sandra Bullock

Betty White has been voted America's favorite and most trusted celebrity, a new poll indicates.

White, the former "Golden Girls" funnywoman who is currently starring in TV Land's "Hot in Cleveland," beat out Paris Hilton and Charlie Sheen as the person "whose endorsement of a company would be most likely to drive business," according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll of 2,012 Americans.

And she didn't have to go to the Marine Corps birthday ball to do it.

The 89-year-old animal lover won an Emmy last year for her "Saturday Night Live" hosting gig, has appeared on "Community" and in Snickers commercials and was named Associated Press entertainer of the year last December. Perhaps that trustworthy face of hers could help do some damage this fall on her "Punk'd"-style prank show "Betty White's Off Their Rockers"?

The other most favorable celebrities behind White are Denzel Washington, Sandra Bullock, Clint Eastwood, Tom Hanks, Harrison Ford, Morgan Freeman (who tied for seventh place with Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge), Will Smith and Johnny Depp.

Topping the not-so-hot list are: Paris Hilton, Charlie Sheen, Britney Spears (who ties for third with Kanye West), Arnold Schwarzenegger, Tiger Woods, Kim Kardashian, Mel Gibson, Donald Trump and LeBron James.

Ashton Kutcher's 'Two and a Half Men' character revealed [Poll]

Ashton Kutcher will play Walden Schmidt on "Two and a Half Men"

Ashton Kutcher, Internet billionaire with a broken heart? That's the back story on Walden Schmidt, Kutcher's character on the new incarnation of "Two and a Half Men," CBS revealed Wednesday.

Because "Two and a Half Men" is in production, Walden Kutcher -- we're sorry, Ashton Kutcher -- was a no-show in Beverly Hills at the twice-annual Television Critics Assn. press tour, covered by Show Tracker.

"When everyone walked on that set on Monday [for the revamped show's first table read], you could cut the air with a knife," CBS honcho Nina Tassler said. "Do you pay extra special attention to the first season? Absolutely."

Questions about Charlie Sheen and his high-profile firing at the end of last season were largely deflected, according to Show Tracker. Dang it. 

The death and funeral of Sheen's Charlie Harper character, plus the sale of Harper's Malibu house have been rumored as elements of the two-episode season premiere. Also expected, according to Deadline: cameos from ex-girlfriends, characters from other Chuck Lorre shows, and real-life celebs who'll appear as themselves. Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones will of course be returning in their roles.

So, back to that Internet-star-with-a-broken-heart concept: Add a little more to Kutcher's real-life social networking oomph and general business savvy, then subtract a little Demi Moore, and it's sounding pretty close to typecasting. Especially if you catch a glimpse at that fit-for-a-billionaire trailer Kutcher's been rocking outside the "Men" soundstage.

Then again, the boozing, womanizing Charlie Harper character did come more than pretty close to Sheen's reality, with no addition or subtraction required -- except maybe when it came to subtracting those goofy "Men" shirts, and adding a few more porn stars.
