What’s the Buzz: Sheen, Berry, Tebow

8 May 2013 By Emily Hite, Columnist No Comments

Sheen Content Without Custody

In what has to be one of the strangest divorced couples news stories, Charlie Sheen’s ex-wife Denise Richards has been granted temporary custody of his twin boys after they were removed from their mother, Brooke Mueller’s, home. This isn’t the first time Richards has taken the twins under her wing.

In December 2012, the boys stayed with Richards when Mueller went to rehab.

Sheen is fully on board with the new situation because they are in a stable and loving environment unlike the unsafe one reported by Child Services in L.A. Richards is taking her role of temporary guardian so seriously that she has already requested a court hearing to prolong the guardianship for at least 30 days. This shouldn’t be hard to convince a judge because Mueller is currently in rehab for the 20th time.

Amanda Berry Found, Reunited

She may not be a celebrity, but Amanda Berry has captured the nation’s attention with her miraculous escape from her abductor. After being held captive for 10 years, Amanda Berry, her 6-year-old daughter Michelle Knight and Gina DeJesus were rescued from the Cleveland home of Ariel Castro, 52. The three women were all kidnapped on separate occasions between 2002 and 2004 when they were in their teens and early 20s. When Castro was out of the house Monday evening, the women started screaming for help. A neighbor, Charles Ramsey, heard the screams and upon seeing the frantic women, kicked open a door. Ramsey amusingly explained, “I knew something was wrong when a little pretty white girl ran into a black man’s arms.”  The women have since been hospitalized and reunited with their families.

Tim Tebow On Top

Forbes released their list of “Most Influential Athletes 2013” this week. Tim Tebow took home the number one spot. Tebow beat out Michael Phelps (No. 2), Usain Bolt (No. 3) and Derek Jeter (No. 4) for the top honor. Despite being recently released from his position as back up quarterback with the New York Jets and his only job offer being a $75 a game position by an indoor football team, The Omaha Beef, Tebow still manages to hold his own in the public eye. Tebow was deemed influential by 29 percent of respondents and with 2.2 million Twitter followers he is able to reach an very broad audience. Tebow’s influence is definitely being heard beyond the list this week as the Texas Senate passed a bill called the ‘Tim Tebow Bill,” which would allow for home-schooled students to participate in local public high school sports teams. Since playing as a home-schooled student for his local high school, Tebow has been an advocate for the rights of athletes who wish to be home-schooled.
