In this case, the wife beater is Charlie Sheen and the “time” he’s doing, is marriage counseling. Yep, I guess it’s okay to straddle your wife and choke her, as long as you’re willing to talk to some stranger about it more than a month later. Oh and sorry, he’s also going to AA. Good for him.
Yesterday Charlie met with a judge in court in order to get the restraining order lifted. That was allowed, and so now Charlie and Brooke Mueller are back on their way home. Apparently, Brooke wanted the restraining order lifted earlier so that she could speak to Charlie about issues with their kids. Uummm…I don’t know that I would need an order lifted for that actually. I think I’d just do whatever I thought was best, and the guy who smacked me could go to hell if he didn’t like it. I just don’t understand these women who take their man back after they’ve been beaten by them. I know, it’s very common and they usually do, it takes a lot to leave, blah blah blah. I know. Still, it makes me crazy. From Celebrity Dirty Laundry,
“The ‘Two and a Half Men’ star is reportedly determined to sort out his problems and get his relationship with Brooke Mueller – who he is accused of assaulting on Christmas Day (25.12.09) – back on track after a judge modified a restraining order against him yesterday (08.02.10) so the couple can live together again. A source told the Chicago Sun-Times newspaper: “Charlie and Brooke already are going through intense marriage counselling and Charlie has been very religious about attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and serious anger management counselling. “He’s telling everyone that he is going to do everything he can to make it work – and last.”
The restraining order which was put in place after the actor was charged with felony menacing and misdemeanour charges of third-degree assault and criminal mischief, has now been lifted on the condition the 44-year-old star does not drink alcohol, is in possession of guns or harasses his wife. Brooke’s attorney, Yale Galanter, said the couple – who have ten-month-old twin sons Bob and Max – had hugged and kissed in Pitkin County Courthouse after yesterday’s hearing before leaving separately, but planned to return to their Los Angeles home together.
He said: “I can tell you, Brooke very badly wanted to have contact with Charlie. There are many children’s issues she wanted to communicate with him about. “Brooke’s desire was to get the order modified so they could have contact and communicate because of their children. Judge Boyd was gracious enough to grant that and now Charlie and Brooke are on their way back to Los Angeles to continue their lives.”
There’s really not a lot more to say is there? Denise Richards recently told Oprah that Charlie was also abusive to her when they were married. And although she did say that Charlie never hit her, he was still abusive. So he’s stepped it up a notch with Brooke and most likely, will do it again. Because we all know that nothing’s going to come out of this hearing in March.
