All is far from quiet on the Charlie Sheen front, with the gossip mill working overtime and possibly even a little real news in the mix. Here’s a roundup of the latest available tidbits:
Warner Bros. has ordered the crew of "Two and a Half Men" back to work next week, even as the home-based rehab of star Sheen sputters along, reports the Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker blog. Sheen is due back at work Tuesday for rehearsals, with a taping set for Friday.
Meanwhile, Popeater’s Naughty but Nice blog reports that CBS is having internal discussions about whether the show can continue without Sheen. CBS declined to comment, the report notes.
Since a 30-second spot on "Men" sells for $200,000, the network is missing out on revenue every time Sheen ends up in the hospital or in rehab, the story says.
USA Today reported that Sheen’s ex, Brooke Mueller, is moving back in with him, along with their twin boys. But the story quotes Mueller’s mom, Moira Fiore, saying the arrangement is temporary until Mueller and the twins can move into their new place close to Sheen’s. "Brooke and Charlie are friends and there is no romantic interest on Brooke’s part," Fiore said.
TMZ says Sheen has a new girlfriend–Natalie Kenly, a bikini model who has been appearing on the cover of the marijuana magazine Cali Chronic X. Meanwhile, a report on Radaronline.com says Sheen is taking a "tropical vacation" with his wife, his live-in porn star girlfriend–Bree Olson–and another woman.
Sheen’s publicist said that "Radaronline is not a creditable source," the Los Angeles Times notes.
