Sheen Live On Saturday Night From ‘Sober Valley Lodge’
LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Live, it’s Charlie Sheen on Saturday night. The irrepressible “Two and a Half Men” star announced on Twitter today he will be on a live webcast tonight from his mansion, which he has dubbed “Sober Valley Lodge.”
The actor told his 1.8 million Twitter followers that “Sheen’s-Korner” will be broadcast on Ustream.tv at 7p.m.
“.Sheen’s-Korner on the air in T minus 07 hrs,” the actor wrote on Twitter. “Hey HBO, is that jealous face? …oops, DUH!…My lawyers asked that I stop talking with the press. so, if it’s just me, how upset could they possibly be? .Sheen’s-Korner.”
Sheen’s estranged-wife, Brooke Mueller, got a temporary restraining order and removed their twin sons from his home, Thursday, citing his increasingly erratic behavior and alleged threats against her. The two are divorcing.
Meantime, the Sheen saga is sparking interest for attorney Gloria Allred.
Allred, who once represented a woman allegedly assaulted by Sheen, said the alleged threats against Mueller should be investigated by authorities.
In 1996, Sheen pleaded no contest to misdemeanor battery with serious bodily injury after he was accused of knocking his then-girlfriend, Brittany Ashland, to the floor.
Allred represented Ashland and said she sees a pattern in the actor’s behavior.
“This is the same individual making threats who attacked her before,” Allred said. “There is enough here.(Authorities) should be proactive in a situation like this.”
Los Angeles police said they would not investigate unless Mueller filed a complaint, which she had not done by Friday, but Allred said an exception should be made.
“This is a public safety matter because he could endanger others, including the police officers who respond to a domestic violence call,” she said.
Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Hank Goldberg issued a restraining order Tuesday after Mueller accused Sheen of being “insane.”
She alleged Sheen repeatedly threatened to kill her, and that Sunday he told her, “I will cut your head off, put it in a box and send it to your mom!”
Sheen has said he does not hit women, but in 2009 Mueller and Sheen separated after a domestic violence incident in Aspen, Colorado.
Sheen pleaded guilty to misdemeanor third-degree assault after Mueller said he restrained her with a knife.
Sheen has been on a media blitz in recent days, lashing out at the producers of “Two and Half Men” for canceling production for the remainder of the season.
Production had been put on hold when Sheen was hospitalized after a marathon party at his home and then entered rehab.
Sheen’s public bashing of series co-creator Chuck Lorre eventually prompted CBS to cancel the rest of the show’s season.
In other developments, Sirius XM radio today started a 24-hour Charlie Sheen news and discussion channel called “Tiger Blood Radio.”
The station is on Sirius Channel 108 and XM Channel 139.
