He may be notorious for his pervy ways with the ladies, but according to a story in the New York Daily News, Charlie Sheen’s preferences aren’t limited to the real article. Rush & Molloy report that the actor once proudly owned a $6,000 full-sized, anatomically-correct cheerleader doll.
Apparently Charlie didn’t see anything wrong with his latex lady. An insider told the publication that he even brought her along to the “Spin City” set back in the day. But all that changed when Charlie offered a couple of real live women the chance for a foursome with him and his inanimate pal.
“They couldn't stop laughing at him,” the source told the Daily News. “Charlie got so mad that he ran the girls out of his house. Then he took a meat cleaver and chopped one of the doll's hands off. He and his bodyguard tried to dispose of it, like it was a real body. They wrapped it in a blanket and drove around in the middle of the night till they found a dumpster.”
But was it really rejection that made the former escort agency serial-client go axe murderer on his cheer-squad reject, or ribbing from his friends that the doll bore a stricking resemblance to ex Denise Richards?

Sir Paul prepares to pay up
Paul McCartney and Heather Mills are finally ready to talk money, reports the UK Times. The estranged couple, along with various sundry legal representatives, is scheduled to meet at a location other than the usual Royal Courts of Justice in an improbable attempt to avoid the media.
Slideshow: The week in celebrity sightings In what is speculated to be the largest divorce settlement in England’s history, the former Mrs. McCartney could walk away with a settlement somewhere between £25-£30 million, according to the Times. Here in the United States, that translates to something around $51-$61 million, and that amount doesn’t even include child support for the couple’s nearly 4-year-old daughter, Beatrice.
Incidentally, it’s reported that Heather “I’m not a gold digger!” Mills is insisting on an amount closer to £50 million (about $102 million), and Sir Paul may just be willing to shell out more to avoid added ugliness.
The ever-employable Lindsay Lohan
Turns out, the end of rehab isn’t necessarily the end of Lindsay Lohan’s career. The New York Post’s Page Six reports that studio bigwig James Robinson would hire lil’ LiLo again despite problems in the past.
Robinson, you may recall, is the Morgan’s Creek CEO who tore Lindsay a virtual new one during the filming of “Georgia Rule.” Key phrases in his publicly posted letter to the hard-partying actress included “discourteous, irresponsible and unprofessional.” Now, however, he tells Page Six, “I would absolutely work with her again. I'd treat her like one of my own kids. She has all this fame and no one in her family to reel her in, no one to guide her, and one thing led to another. She is very, very talented and was never a diva on the set.”
Meanwhile, “Rush Hour” director Brett Ratner told E! Online’s The Awful Truth that he’d definitely consider Lindsay for a part in his upcoming Hugh Hefner biopic. “She's very talented ... if she's sober,” he said. “She would be great as a Playboy Bunny.”
Dish on the fly
Outspoken actor George Clooney has no aspirations for a Capitol Hill career, but in the latest issue of Time magazine, he has some harsh words for those who’d criticize celeb activists. “I welcome any of these dumb pundits who make celebrities out to be bad guys to a discussion about Darfur. Because I've been there, and I've met all the players, and I guarantee you the pundits haven't.” For his part, Clooney put his money where his mouth is and raised millions for the refugees of Darfur. ... Life is imitating art on the set of “30 Rock.” A Page Six spy claims Tracy Morgan “didn't know his lines, he wasn't listening to the director and was arguing with cast members on set.” Sounds more like typical behavior from his fictional counterpart Tracy Jordan.
