Judge says no to Sheen, estranged wife

We would have been keeping you updated with the ins and outs of Charlie Sheen's custody battle over twins Bob and Max with estranged wife Brooke Mueller, but nothing much was happening. In fact, even when they finally hit court on Tuesday, nothing happened — the judge kept their custody agreement as is. Well, it's not like either one of those parents can deal with the kids alone. Following Brooke's super-duper bender last week and Chuck's overall mental decline, both of them were jockeying for sole custody of their twins. No way, the judge said, especially after Denise Richards and Brooke's mom offered to take the kids, TMZ reports. They will keep the court-approved settlement they reached on March 10.
