The NY Post reports that despite their initial reservations about even granting her an audition, producers of a new ABC Family series have given the former Bond Girl a role.
Richards is the ex-wife of Charlie Sheen and mother to two daughters with him, a daughter she adopted post their divorce, the two boys he had with Brooke Mueller and possibly parenting some neighbor children I don’t know about.
Socio, is an hour long drama about a teenager’s life after he is released from jail for killing his aunt. Richards will play the boy’s mother, a socialite who now must deal with the fall out of her son’s return.
Someone needs to tell Charlie Sheen that he’s not performing on his own roast on Comedy Central, but rather a tried and true, stuffy, corporate and quite establishment-ish celebration…A Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was given, forpitysake! Oh. Wait. It’s for SLASH.
Less than three months after his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Slash received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today. Speakers included producer Robert Evans, radio host Jim Ladd and Charlie Sheen, who had the best line of the ceremony. “It’s quite fitting that Slash is getting a star on the very street Axl Rose will one day be sleeping on,” he said. “This star is going to be stepped on more than the coke we did in the Eighties.” Slash covered his face to hide his laughter during the Axl crack, but if the odds of a Guns N’ Roses were a trillion-to-one before today, they just got a bit slimmer.
p.s. I LOVE Slash. Love him. (I think I love Duff McKagen more, though…was he there??)
Sources confirm that Ashton Kutcher will be replacing Charlie Sheen as the lead on CBSs’ Two and a Half Men. Kutcher’s reps have declined to comment, but the deal is said to be all but signed. No word yet on how much he will be getting to join the show, but the payday is said to be huge according to The Hollywood Reporter. Recently Hugh Grant, who turned down the offer, and Rob Lowe were considered as replacements for Sheen, who is still busy running around the country being crazy.
The show’s creator Chuck Lorre is said to be putting together a storyline that will introduce Kutcher in a way that will satisfy the network and studio. “It’s really funny,” one source says. “People are going to love it.” I guess this means that the show will actually be funny now.
