He lost in court. Now Charlie Sheen is taking his fight public.
The Two and a Half Men star – who took ex-wife Denise Richards to court in a failed attempt to prevent her from including their two daughters in a reality show – is now urging viewers to tune out the upcoming E! series.
“I think we should all just boycott the damn thing!” Sheen, 42, half-jokingly told PEOPLE Wednesday night at an Academy of TV event for his sitcom. “Issue a mass boycott.”
In January, a judge gave the former Bond Girl, 37, permission to include the ex-couple’s daughters Sam, 3, and Lola, 2, in the as-yet-untitled show (which is being produced by Ryan Seacrest’s company to air this summer).
But the legal ruling did nothing to dampen Sheen’s opposition to the project. “You don’t go to court and make stands to prevent that if you don’t firmly believe in it,” he said.
Regarding the court’s decision, the CBS star added, “The world is upside down sometimes.”
Wedding This Summer
Fortunately, the actor has plenty else on which to focus: returning to work after the writers’ strike and planning a wedding to fiancée Brooke Mueller.
The couple – who became engaged last July – are finally zeroing in on a wedding date.
“We’re going to it this summer,” Sheen said. “Yes, we’re tired of this question.”
After countless media enquiries about their nuptials, Mueller jokingly added, “You guys pressured us into it. So here we go!”
