According to a report from yesterday on TMZ, Brooke Mueller is threatening to send a legal letter to Comedy Central to squelch any would-be negative jokes about her that might crop up during the network’s scheduled roast of Charlie Sheen, her ex husband. “We’re told Brooke’s people are seriously considering sending Comedy Central a letter, demanding it not broadcast any anti-Mueller jabs,” the report says.
However, a Comedy Central rep tells us today that no legal papers have been sent to the network.
When Comedy Central announced its plans to roast the embattled actor, their press release included a statement from Sheen, saying, “You could say I’ve been providing kindling for this Roast for a while. It’s time to light it up. It’s going to be epic.”
And Kent Alterman, head of original programming and production at the network revealed that, “Charlie has assured us that nothing will be off limits in this Roast, which scares even us.”
And apparently it’s scaring Mueller as well. Let’s hope she decides to keep her concerns to herself and not make a legal issue out of this. She chose to marry Charlie Sheen. She knew what she was getting into.
The roast will film on Sept. 10 in Los Angeles and will premiere on Comedy Central on Sept. 19. Will you be tuning in?
