The Word: Charlie Sheen not so much getting married anymore

Folks who were looking to the tasteful and elegant nuptials of Mr. Charlie Sheen and former adult film star Brett Rossi, I've to some bad news for you. The wedding is off. Capping a solid month of return-to-form erratic behavior, the "Anger Management" star has called it quits with his fiancée, according to Radar Online. "The relationship actually ended a few weeks ago. Charlie finally broke up with her and kicked her out of the house. All of the fighting had just gotten out of control, and Brett was making him miserable," a source who's clearly on Team Sheen says. "Charlie just wanted to hang out with his friends, but Brett always pitched a fit when he did." Well, considering what Sheen considers "hanging out with his friends" — be they real or imaginary and made of candy fire — I can't really blame her.


At least Sheen is being civil about it, releasing a restrained and respectful statement: "Scotty and I had a great year together as we traveled the world and crossed a lot of things off our bucket list. She's a terrific gal, but we've mutually decided to go our separate ways and to not spend the rest of our lives together." And don't worry, getting married wasn't one of the things on their bucket lists, anyway. Their walk down the aisle was planned for Nov. 22, so I can't help but wonder if there was some sort of catering deposit he couldn't get back if he canceled within 3o days of the event or something. The wedding would've been Rossi's second and Sheen's fourth. And you really want to make sure she's the one before marriage No. 5. Everyone knows that's the one that sticks.



Bono makes his sunglasses tease-proof

We've been making fun of Bono's ever-present massive sunglasses for two decades now, going all the way back to the "Zoo TV" tour, but it turns out we're all jerks. Congratulations. When asked by Graham Norton during an interview if he ever takes his trademark shades off, the U2 front-man offered this comedy-killing explanation: "This is a good place to explain to people that I've had glaucoma for the last 20 years." See, don't you feel terrible now? But while glaucoma can lead to blindness if not treated, Bono's going to be just fine. "I have good treatments and I am going to be fine," he said. But we can still make fun of him for the whole forcing an album on all iTunes users thing, right?

Jude Law has yet another pregnant ex-girlfriend

You probably didn't have any doubts about Jude Law's virility, but just in case, the "Sherlock Holmes" star is working hard to put them to rest. "I can confirm that Jude Law and Catherine Harding are expecting a child together in the spring," the actor's rep tells People magazine. And even though Law and Harding "are no longer in a relationship," they "are both wholeheartedly committed to raising their child." If this all sounds familiar, it's because Law had his current youngest child, 5-year-old Sophia, under circumstances, announcing that ex Samantha Burke was expecting after they'd split up. He also has two children with ex-wife Sadie Frost. A word of warning to future ex-girlfriends of Law: Ask for clarification before accepting any "going away presents" he might offer.

"Buffy" star arrested in Boise

Brandon mugshot"Buffy the Vampire Slayer" star Nicholas Brendon had a pretty rough weekend — one that ended with his bruised face and bloodshot eyes staring out from a mug shot taken by the Boise, Idaho police. Brendon was arrested at his hotel in Boise — where he was in town for a Comic-Con appearance — for "malicious injury to property" and "resisting or obstructing officers," according to TMZ. He reportedly got in a drunken argument with hotel staff after breaking a decorative dish a trying to abandon the scene after police arrived. His naively optimistic rep released the following statement: "It would be extremely helpful if we could all put this misunderstanding behind us and focus on more positive things." Extremely helpful to Brandon, I assume. But won't someone think of the decorative dishes?

Russell Brand, live from outside Fox News

Russell Brand doesn't take nicely to having a talk show appearance canceled. The comedian and upstart says he was planning to appear on Fox News' "Hannity" to discuss some hot-button topics until he was told not to bother. So instead he grabbed a laptop and a camera man and did a segment of his own Web series, "the Trews," on the sidewalk outside Fox's New York City headquarters — until security told him to knock it off. And threatened to have him arrested.

"Whether the subject is Islamophobia or it's just the freedom to be in a lobby, Fox is a difficult organization to work with," he says, continuing to film outside the building after failing to gain access. "Whether it's canceling bookings for the Hannity show or kicking you out of their building, which they claim is owned by Beacon Management, it's very difficult to have true freedom." He then hops in the back of an SUV and finishes his segment.
