Charlie Sheen’s wife in intensive care

Brooke and Charlie SheenCharlie Sheen‘s wife, Brooke, was admitted to hospital Wednesday with a fever of 105 degrees and an infection following dental surgery. She was placed in the intensive care unit and was given antibiotics to control the infection, but in the meantime developed pneumonia. Although the Sheens are under a court order to stay away from each other due to a domestic violence incident on Christmas Day, the prosecutor’s office in Aspen, Colorado, where Sheen was charged with second degree assault, menacing and domestic violence, granted the actor’s request to modify the protection order so he could visit his wife in the hospital. A court hearing in Aspen regarding the domestic violence case was scheduled to take place this week, but has been put on hold until next month. ~Alexandra Heilbron

    I hope that Brooke gets better soon as well as these two can settle their differences in a timely manner. It would seem be a tragedy to see another Hollywood couple go down the tubes.

  2. darlene • January 22, 2010 @ 10:12 AM

    I wish you a speedy recovery Brooke and I hope everything will go find with your healing process.Nice couple it’s too bad for fighting especially when we are in a brand new year.

  3. Judy • January 22, 2010 @ 11:21 AM

    I too hope that she gets well soon and can resolve things with Charlie. I love him! he’s hilarious!

  4. Marilyne • January 22, 2010 @ 11:31 AM

    Charlie really needs to get more counselling regarding his anger and his drinking. I feel that was probably the cause of his domestic abuse situation. That is something women should not put up with, not even once, ask Rihanna!!

  5. mandee • January 22, 2010 @ 1:24 PM

    i hope she gets better as well! also, i probably shouldnt have read this lmao now im going to be all paranoid 😛

    i hope brooke gets better

  8. Pat Scott • January 22, 2010 @ 2:25 PM

    I wish Brooke a speedy recovery and a safe and happy life for her and her children.. I am not sure she will get that with Charlie Sheen. He has a very bad history with domestic violence. The only way she should consider reconciliation, is if he goes to counselling and then it should be on a trial basis. She might have to give up the “good life” for the sake of a happy and safe one.

  9. Diane Antoniak • January 22, 2010 @ 2:41 PM

    I hope that Brooke will have a speedy recovery and so her kids would have their mom back home and Charlie Sheen should know better not to beat his wife and I agree with Pat Scott the only way that Brooke consider reconciliation with Charlie is for him to go to conselling for his bad history with domestic violence.

  10. Heather Langlois • January 22, 2010 @ 3:30 PM

    I hope Brooke will recover, and yes i agree that Charlie should go for counselling, and also to rehab for his drinking. If he truly wants a relationship and marriage he should go to rehab to help him, as he needs it. I know he loves Brooke and she loves him, but come on Charlie do you really want to keep being arrested for violence, when you can help yourself by going to councelling and to rehab. We all love your show Two and Half Men, as it is hilarious, and from watching that show no one would ever think you were violent. Get help Charlie to save your marriage and for the children, so you all can live a normal life…

  11. Robert Copeland • January 22, 2010 @ 5:22 PM

    I really wish there was a “Help Women stop pushing your buttons counselling course” It takes two to tango!

  12. Nancy • January 22, 2010 @ 5:32 PM

    So, Robert Copeland, the reason why Charlie flipped out was because she told him on Christmas morning that she wanted a divorce because they are so different, that she likes going out (a people person) and he always wants to sit home….WOW! She should know better than to push his buttons, shouldn’t she?

  13. Moviefan • January 22, 2010 @ 5:34 PM

    Yeah Robert, women are always to blame. If they get hit or threatened, it must be their fault. If it takes “two to tango” then she would’ve been holding a knife as well. That’s not “two to tango”, that’s one out of control jerk being a bully.

  14. Paula • January 22, 2010 @ 5:38 PM

    I agree Robert. The other side is often over-looked. There is help … Alanon.

  15. demigod • January 22, 2010 @ 5:51 PM

    I also agree Robert. It does take two, and we haven’t heard the whole story. Was she pmsing x-mas morning?

  16. tributegirl • January 22, 2010 @ 6:51 PM

    Even if she was, that’s no reason to hold a knife to her throat.

  17. gypsy • January 22, 2010 @ 9:44 PM

    My prayers are with her,this is a life threatening infection in her blood stream.I hope the antibiotics were started in time to aid in a speedy recovery.

  18. Doug • January 22, 2010 @ 10:30 PM

    The comments on this story are a riot. You people are retarded. Lol.

  19. Carol • January 22, 2010 @ 10:48 PM

    Christmas morning, bad timing. They have kids so they could have tried to keep it happy, if only for that one day. BUT…no matter what was said or when, domestic violence is not acceptable under any circumstance. People can change, but not a lot do. The biggest part of change is that person has to want to change. And to want to change you have to admit there is something wrong…people can’t seem to get past their own issues.

  20. mandee • January 23, 2010 @ 2:04 AM

    i wonder if you would all blame charlie if it had of been brooke holding the knife to charlies throat?

  21. L • January 23, 2010 @ 11:27 AM

    You know the problem these people have too much money and too much time on their hand,
    think of the poor people in Haiti!!!

  22. demigod • January 23, 2010 @ 2:18 PM

    Tg, ‘love’ and/or ‘dysfunctionality’ can make people do crazy things.

  23. mandee • January 23, 2010 @ 5:37 PM

    by the way, anyone thats willing to help me out ? is it had OF or had HAVE ? i always get that confused 🙁

  24. Angela • January 23, 2010 @ 5:49 PM

    Had HAVE. People started writing “Had of” because when “had have” is contracted it to say “had’ve” (as in, “if he had’ve just walked away instead of losing his temper”) it sounds like “had of,” but it’s a contraction of “had have.” If you think about it, Had OF doesn’t make sense in any sentence.

  25. Deborah • January 23, 2010 @ 6:43 PM

    I hope Briike has a fast recovery from Denatal surgery ,Infection and Pneumonia,Also I hope Charlie sheen does well in rehab and start dealing with gis issues Maybe somewhere down the room they may be a family again.

  26. Deborah • January 23, 2010 @ 6:44 PM

    I wish Brooke and charlie sheen all the best in the future after he attends rehab

  27. mandee • January 24, 2010 @ 2:32 AM

    Angela on January 23, 2010 5:49 PM thanks for clearing that up for me 😀 after i wrote it i thought it didnt make any sense, thats why i was asking for clarification.

  28. Dylan A • January 24, 2010 @ 5:10 AM

    Wishing brook a speedy recovery. and no its not right to hit women at all. under no circumstances.

    Whats funny is rich people seem to have more problems then regular working folk. and we thought the rich were intelligent? come on Charlie get your act together. if your having fights as a couple then go to counsoling and dont just pull this knife incident out again.

  29. tributegirl • January 24, 2010 @ 10:40 AM

    demigod, I know, but to use her possible pms as an excuse for his violence doesn’t make any sense to me. In fact, if she was pms’ing that bad, I would expect it to be HER that would have gotten violent. Either way, it’s just an excuse, the person is still responsible for their own actions.

  30. deMamaBee • January 24, 2010 @ 12:08 PM

    I hope you get well quickly Brooke. it is unfortunate that you have so many issues to deal with.

    Charlie, get into rehab! It might not save your marriage but perhaps you can help yourself.

    Abusers are control freaks and nothing but insecure bullies. When they don’t get their way they have a tantrum and take it out on the people closest to them in the worst possible manner.
    Abused victims tend to start believing that they have to put up with it,particularly since abusers are very good manipulators. They make the victim believe that it is their fault and/or that it won’t happen again and they apologize and say how much they love you. (They are very insecure and want to make sure they have control over you)

    …chances are it will happen again and again in a vicious cycle

    It is extremely difficult to make the decision to leave an abusive relationship as the victims self esteem has been battered to nonexistence.

    Good for you Brooke for doing what you must to get out of an abusive relationship

    Not only you but your children do not need to be subjected to Charlie’s abusive and volatile behavior.

    and by the way..
    So what if Charlie is a celebrity, he is just a man who happened to get a job acting and made lots of money doing that.

    it doesn’t give him or anyone the right to abuse their spouse.

    My prayers are with you Brooke

  31. deMamaBee • January 24, 2010 @ 12:29 PM

    As for Robert Copeland..

    There are courses for you. Since you seem to have issues with women, Psychologists around the world offer counceling to help build your self esteem and courses in anger management.
    There will always be someone who is good at pushing buttons, heck, my kids try to push mine once in a while when they don’t get their way.
    Its how you react to it that makes all the difference.

  32. Wayne • January 24, 2010 @ 1:44 PM

    I dislike it when people jump to government conspiracy just because of Charlie’s “20 minutes with the president” thing. Charlie doesn’t drink people. It is a dry house. The main thing is they are human and they are trying

  33. mandee • January 24, 2010 @ 3:05 PM

    “it doesnt give him or anyone the right to abuse their spouse.” thats pretty obvious. when did anyone say that the only reason he beats his wife is because hes rich? or that his money makes it ok?

    what about charlie? how come no ones considering that his abusing women is a mental disorder? perhaps he should be in rehab and should be seeing a counselor to work out his issues and find out WHY he is the way he is. im not excusing what he does/did, im not saying its ok or that it is a good reason for him to abuse his wife, but it is a possibility. for the most part you cant change if you have mental problems that make you the way you are, especially if youre not willing to see someone and try to work them out for yourself. shouldnt the fact that hes now lost 2 wives and 4 children be a good enough reason to seek professional help and find out why he is the way he is?

  34. mandee • January 24, 2010 @ 3:07 PM

    also, demigod just read your comment. it shouldnt matter if she was pmsing, he doesnt have the right to physically harm her. although im confused as to why some people agree that its ok to pull someones hair, or slap them in the face when they say something the other person doesnt like as long as its a WOMAN doing the hair pulling or slapping? how can it be ok for one gender to do things to other people because they dont like whats being said, but its not ok for the other gender?

  35. demigod • January 24, 2010 @ 3:41 PM

    C’mon guys..I WASN’T making excuses for him. I did call it ‘crazy’.

  36. deb722 • January 24, 2010 @ 4:19 PM

    Get better soon Brooke. I wish you, Charlie and the entire Sheen family the very best. Good luck to all of you! 🙂

  37. Nancy • January 24, 2010 @ 5:25 PM

    Mandee: Who said that it’s ok for a “WOMAN” to hair pull or “slap someone in the face when they say something the other person doesn’t like”?

    deMamaBee: I agree, and Charlie Sheen is only famous because he was born into the business and his daddy got him in.

  38. mandee • January 24, 2010 @ 5:39 PM

    i had a feeling youd be the one to comment on that. i wasnt referring to you, but every article there is people are commenting on how they think its fine (even just about kelly) that they physically harmed someone else. i meant anyone that thinks its ok for a woman to smack someone for saying bad things about her or her boyfriend etc, how can you think thats ok but not think its ok for a man to smack his wife/girlfriend when she says something that pi*sses him off? it just seems hypocritical. and no, i wasnt looking to start a fight with you.

  39. Nancy • January 24, 2010 @ 5:47 PM

    To me, there is a big difference between someone “saying something the other person doesn’t like” and VERBAL ASSAULT. On the flip side, there is a big difference between slapping someone in the face (for saying something you don’t like) and self defense (for verbal assault), there is also a big difference between a slap and a beating or a slap and holding a knife to someone’s throat.

  40. Nancy • January 24, 2010 @ 5:49 PM

    Also, in my comments, I never specified any gender.

  41. Carol • January 24, 2010 @ 9:19 PM

    You are right Nance, it is not gender specific,and I bet the tables are turned, just a lot of men don’t come forward. Abuse is wrong, and he can’t help their marriage until he helps himself, which is not a quick fix in a 90 day recovery program. First he has to want it, second, he has to seriously do it, and this is long term. So unfortunately if she wants to wait for him for an indefinite amount of time, sure, the marriage might work. Chances are, it won’t

  42. Carol • January 24, 2010 @ 9:20 PM

    I mean “if” the tables are turned

  43. mandee • January 24, 2010 @ 10:49 PM

    youre right, there is a big difference between slapping someone and holding a knife to their throat…slapping is physically painful while holding a knife to someones throat is only psychologically frightening. and, once again i wasnt referring to YOU in my comment.

  44. gypsy • January 24, 2010 @ 11:27 PM

    My opinion..A slap you get over,in a hour or so,a knife to the throat STAYS WITH YOU FOREVER!

  45. gypsy • January 24, 2010 @ 11:41 PM

    Before anyone dives on my comment I should add physical beatings and raping,molesting come under the knife/gun category.It is very different than a slap or pushing a person! This is my own personal opinion!

  46. demigod • January 25, 2010 @ 12:13 PM

    A slap, you get over in an hour or so?? A woman will remember that for a loong time!

  47. mandee • January 25, 2010 @ 12:21 PM

    gypsy, why would you assume i would “dive” on your comment? you have the right to your opinion and i have the right to disagree. slapping someone and holding a knife to their throat are two different kinds of abuse/assault. one is simply frightening while the other is painful. if charlie doesnt BEAT her and they were both drunk when he held the knife to her throat, perhaps it wasnt even in anger? perhaps it was in some weird sex thing they were doing and she just took it wrong because she was drunk? we have no idea what they do in the bedroom, it could be part of their foreplay. drunk people tend to overreact or take things differently than they would if they were sober. demigod, i agree, anyone would remember being slapped their entire life basically. but, gypsys also right, theyd probably get over it pretty quickly.

  48. gypsy • January 25, 2010 @ 2:13 PM

    Mandee.the dive on my comment was not aimed at anyone in particular.Agree to disagree?OK!

  49. gypsy • January 25, 2010 @ 2:25 PM

    Denig..People play slap and tickle all the time!Remember I did say it was my opinion,perhaps other’s would.To me a slap would be forgotten very quickly,other woman may agree with you,that’s their choice.I’m not speaking for them,just myself!

  50. mandee • January 25, 2010 @ 6:43 PM

    ohh ok, it just seemed like it was specifically aimed at me because of the comment i said before you said yours. im good with disagreeing, we are able to do so in an adult manner so its all good 😀 how are you anyway? havent talked to you in a while. also, to anyone that cares, i wont be on probably for a few days (have a class to go to for the next 4 days) hope you all have a good week!

  51. Jxx • January 25, 2010 @ 11:29 PM

    I wish her a speedy recovery and for them both to have a happy marriage.

  52. Patrica • January 26, 2010 @ 4:34 AM

    I wish for Brooke a speedy and full recovery. I also hope that not only Charlie but she herself go and the counselling they both need. She knew what she was getting into when she married him, she then had children with him. I am sure that she was filled in the toxic relationship between him and Richardson, who judging by what I’ve seen on her reality show needed and still needs a lot of counselling. Domestic abuse is never just one sided and it didn’t JUST happen, it was there and it was fed on by the media. Only Charlie and his spouses know what went on behind closed doors. I am by no means absolving Charlie, it’s clear he has a real problem, between his substance abuse and his anger issues. Richardson for one tried to keep him from his children and she used the media to try and keep him away, we don’t know for sure the real story about their marriage and the ending anymore than we know what went on between him and Brooke. Any woman or man who threaten to use the children to get their own is just asking for trouble.

  53. mandee • January 26, 2010 @ 10:10 AM

    “Domestic abuse is never just one sided” BS its not. women/men dont ASK to be beaten or abused, meaning the ABUSER is the one thats doing it to them by his/her own choice, meaning it IS one sided.

  54. Nancy • January 26, 2010 @ 5:05 PM

    I agree, Mandee. Just because one person has a problem (being Charlie in this case), doesn’t mean everyone involved is to blame. Some people seem to think okay, well none of us were there to know what went on so, they are all to blame. As for what Denise Richards said about their kids…well, we weren’t there either, were we? Maybe she has good reason…maybe she don’t…maybe he didn’t only abuse her.

  55. mandee • January 26, 2010 @ 8:44 PM

    i agree. we have no idea what he did to her and her children, or to this woman. we have no idea if he abuses women and children or if they are just claiming he has abused them to make him look bad. no one will ever really know until HE admits it, theres a video or a pic of it, or bruising, broken bones etc that are reported to the police and the hospital the minute it happens. if charlie is abusing his wives (ex and current) then clearly its not the woman thats to blame, because how can it be BOTH of them and not him? come on now.
