Charlie Sheen’s father, brother express support

While promoting their movie “The Way” in Washington on Friday, Emilio Estevez and Martin Sheen expressed love and support for their sometimes-troubled family member, Charlie Sheen. Their comments mark the first time either has spoken publicly about the actor’s troubles since March.

Martin Sheen, 71, and Mr. Estevez, Charlie’s 49-year-old brother, have reconciled with the wayward Charlie. In fact, they now say there never was truly a split.

Charlie showed up to the AARP screening last Friday [in Los Angeles] and surprised us on the red carpet. It was lovely to see him,” Mr. Estevez said. “The photos are all up on the Internet.

“You know, we’re a tight family,” he added. “I live right down the street from my folks. I talk to my mother every day. I’m a momma’s boy. We all are. So there’s no exclusion in this family. You’re part of it. We embrace you and lift you up.”

Nearly a year ago, Charlie Sheen’s public meltdown started making headlines after he was hospitalized when police found him naked and intoxicated after a hotel owner complained that he had trashed his room. What followed was a rehab stint, a failed stand-up comedy tour, a restraining order from then-wife Brooke Mueller, ever-present rumors about his live-in girlfriends - an adult film star and his former nanny - and, of course, the birth of “tiger blood” and “winning!” jokes.

But all that is in the past, says Martin Sheen; he doesn’t hold Charlie’s antics against him any more than he would against his other two children.

“When somebody is spinning out like that, do they not live closer to your heart?” the elder Mr. Sheen asked. “That’s what we were going through. Yeah, we couldn’t control it. We couldn’t get in there. But we knew that there was someone home. That’s the guy. We embrace him.

“As a parent, which one do you love the most? You love them equally. But you direct your love - do you not? - to the one who needs it the most at the time. It doesn’t mean you love one less than the other, but whoever needs the most at the time, you go to them. That’s what we experienced.”

Emilio Estevez wrote and directed “The Way,” a film about a man on a religious pilgrimage through France and Spain as he mourns his son. The film stars Martin Sheen and opens Oct. 7.

‘Girls Next Door’ star gets $1 million breast insurance

Holly Madison, the former Hugh Hefner girlfriend who co-starred in the reality series “The Girls Next Door,” took out a $1 million insurance policy with Lloyd’s of London for her breasts, she told People magazine Thursday.

Miss Madison, who currently appears in “Peepshow” at the Las Vegas “Planet Hollywood” hotel, explained why: “If anything happened to my boobs, I’d be out for a few months and I’d probably be out a million dollars. I thought I’d cover my assets.”

Miss Madison had plastic surgery in 2001, changing her size from an A-cup to a D-cup. She has discussed the surgery openly, citing confidence and self-esteem issues as her reason for the big change.
