Uh-oh. It was reported during Charlie Sheen’s wife, Brooke Mueller’s first rehab stay that homegirl was there to beat an addiction to crack, but not only did her family deny the claim, but it just sounded fake. Crack? Who the hell does crack that isn’t Whitney Houston or homeless? Well, I guess Brooke Mueller does because she’s back in rehab again and this time the people in Brooke’s life aren’t keeping so quiet.
“Brooke has been in denial about her problem for a long time,” one source close to her told RadarOnline.com.
Brooke checked into rehab last week. She has both an alcohol and a crack addiction problem, and has been treated for both in the past, RadarOnline.com is reporting exclusively.
And then there’s this, also from Radar:
She left North Carolina for Charlie’s court appearance in Colorado and then returned to Los Angeles.
“She went on an all-nighter,” the source said. “She was just out of control.”
Brooke has been boozing heavily and smoking crack for months, according to the source. She was drunk at 8:30 am Christmas when she called 911 and told cops that Charlie held a knife to her throat and threatened to kill her.
Oh, and sadly, this isn’t even the closest she’s come to hitting a wall:
RadarOnline.com reported previously that Brooke was treated for crack addiction around 2001 as an inpatient in a Los Angeles facility.
“She had a bad problem even back then,” one person who knows her said. “She would leave the facility, score drugs, get beat up and wind up in the hospital.”
And the source who is close to her now told RadarOnline.com: “She’s smoking crack and she’s drinking heavily. Everyone around her wanted her to get help.”
Holy crap, you guys! It’s not as if I thought that the woman who married Charlie Sheen was going to be totally sane, but a crack addict?! Ugh. I wish nothing better for Charlie, but this is, of course, a complete tragedy due to the fact that Brooke is a mother. And I hate to say it, but do you think somewhere out there, this pleases Denise Richards to no end?

In what represents an appropriate metaphor for his life in the last 6 months, Charlie Sheen’s vehicle went off a cliff early Friday morning.
The car’s On*Star system automatically notified emergency services when the crash occurred at around 3:45am somewhere off of Mulholland Drive. Sheen himself was then notified by phone because he wasn’t in the vehicle when it crashed. Or so the story goes…
The official story is that the car was stolen by persons unknown from Sheen’s driveway, and then crashed off a 400 foot embankment into some brush. Sheen states that he arrived at his home at 8:30 and was in bed by 10:30. He didn’t even know his car was missing until he received a call from On*Star.
I suppose a very skillful, stealthy car thief could have sneaked into (and then out of) his gated community, disabled the alarm, stolen his car without anyone noticing, and then had a fucking aneurism or something to make him run the car off a cliff.
The insane conspiracy theorist in me pictures a sauced Sheen having a doozy of a D.U.I. and calling a friend to quickly spirit him away from the scene before anyone was the wiser. But that theory doesn’t hold much water.
Three other cars were reportedly broken into in the same area that night and a Bentley was later found crashed off another embankment down the same road. There’s no indication that anyone was in either of the cars at the time, so this might just be the work of vandals who have something against either luxury vehicles or Two and a Half Men.

Brooke Mueller took off to North Carolina last week to go to a “wellness facility”, which is usually Hollywood legalese for “drying out and doing rich people things in a safe, drug-free environment”. Rumors started flying that Brooke was on crack (crack!?), and that the day Charlie got all knifey on her, she was high. Brooke’s attorney thinks you’re a moron if you believe that story, though and said the following to E! News about his client:
“She’s in North Carolina with her mother for some rest and relaxation, and she is still being treated for her infection and pneumonia,” he says. “The story about her being in rehab is a crock of crap.”
Brooke’s mom is with her at the rehab facility and also insists that her daughter is just there to relax and get her shit together. She also spoke to E! and said, “I’m with Brooke right now. It’s true that we are at a resort that specializes in many things for a ‘wellness’ facility…People come here for a variety of reasons. Brooke’s reason is mainly to get away and be pampered, and, at the same time, she can work on her physical and emotional health.”
So we’re settled on that. Brooke Mueller is just going to therapy and getting massages. But I’m interested to know where crack came in to play. What an interesting drug to accuse someone who’s not Whitney Houston of being on.

Sheen headed back to work this week at CBS, and the studio is being supportive, but careful to leave themselves an out if they decide later on that he’s not worth the trouble. CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler said that they are regarding the matter as personal:
“We are being very sensitive to the fact that this is a very personal and very private matter for Charlie,” Tassler said. “Right now it is business as usual.”
Which is executive-speak for, “His hit show makes us a lot of money, so we’re not going to drop the hammer unless it stops making us a lot of money.”
Sheen filmed an episode of Two and a Half Men earlier this week in front of a live studio audience that was said to be “very supportive.” Executive producer Chuck Lorre also seems to be standing by his man:
“I can’t speak to his personal situation but I can tell you that he showed up on Monday and we had a great week. Rehearsals went really well and last night we did a live show in front of a studio audience, and it was a big success for us.”
I always thought the title Two and a Half Men referred to the two grown men and the little boy on the show. But seeing Sheen as a knife-wielding psychopath gives it a whole other meaning.
Prosecutors will decide whether or not to file charges on Sheen at a court hearing that is scheduled for February 8th. Perhaps everyone is just adopting a wait-and-see attitude until then? Thus far, the only real backlash Sheen seems to have faced is being dropped by Hanes as their spokesman. It’s not often that one gets dropped by their underwear instead of the other way around.

Brooke Mueller and Charlie Sheen are supposed to stay away each other until a judge sees their case regarding Charlie going hella craycray on Brooke with a knife over Christmas. Brooke’s lawyer even said as much to People Magazine in an interview. However, the two were seen dining last night and Hollywood and word has it that Brooke is dying to get back with her more-famous hubby.
The drama between them sounds pretty high school (According to some stories, Brooke “instigated” the near-stabbing incident after starting a fight over Charlie’s daughter Sam) and Charlie doesn’t have the best relationship track record. He’s just recently straightened things out with Denise Richards. Remember how ugly that got?
While you can always argue that they are staying together for the sake of their children and the vows they took, the two had a fight on Christmas that could have resulted in someone being murdered. I’m not Dr. Drew or anything, but I can tell you that that’s a bad news bears situation for everyone involved.

Another day in the Brooke Mueller and Charlie Sheen saga turns up yet another story and this one does not paint a pretty picture of Brooke at all. Turns out that back in the day (1996), Brooke was somewhat of a party animal and was arrested twice, once for a DUI and a second time for cocaine possession.
From E! Online:
E! News has learned she was arrested on two separate occasions: once for driving under the influence and causing damage to property, and later for possession of cocaine. (Both cases were ultimately dropped.)
The first charges came back in 1996, when a Palm Beach police officer spotted the then 19-year-old Mueller driving erratically. The car, which held three other passengers, rounded a corner and crashed into a road sign, knocking it down but managing to avoid any injuries.
Not to downplay the dangers of drunk driving and drug use, but who cares that when Charlie Sheen’s wife was 19 she did this stuff? Sure, it’s relevant if you consider everything a person’s done in their life when assessing their ability to parent or be a decent person, but if that’s how we’re making judgements, then no one’s going to cut it. No matter what Brooke put up her nose in the mid-90s, attacks on her character take away from the severity of Charlie’s crime. Holding someone at knifepoint can not be explained or excused because the victim is maybe a bad person or has done bad things in their life. If we found out Tiger Woods’ wife had some old DUI charges, would we excuse him having over a dozen mistresses? Probably not so much. Let’s not cloud the facts with irrelevant details, huh?
