Winning! Charlie Sheen in Atlanta with Denise Richards, kids

Charlie Sheen’s in Atlanta, having tagged along with ex Denise Richards, who’s here working on Tyler Perry’s latest Madea movie, “Madea’s Witness Protection.” Their kids are here, too.

“Packing the family..heading to Atlanta tomorrow to finish the movie. Kids coming & Charlie Sheen,” Richards tweeted this week, adding the hash tag “familytime.”

Sheen responded: “As always D… A great week coming!! XO”

The two have had a rocky past but have mended fences, Richards told Access Hollywood in January after spending the holidays together with the children.

“We’ve actually become like brother and sister, we really have,” she told Access Hollywood. “We’ve become very, very good friends and we wanted to have a trip with our daughters – and it’s Christmas for them, so it’s good. When we all spend time together, it’s great for the kids and for us too. We actually get along.”

She added that she and Sheen make things work by focusing on the kids.

“I think [the key is] making it about the kids. The stuff between the couple — if you’re divorced — it’s no longer about you anymore,” she said. “You have to be the bigger person and make it about the kids and so that’s what we’re doing.”

Sheen was here last year, making a tour stop at the Fox Theatre. My colleague Rodney Ho and I flipped for it and he lost the coin toss, so he covered it. “Things started getting ugly fast,” RoHo wrote. Read all about it here.

The Atlanta trip, on the other hand, has been pleasant, it sounds like. Earlier this week, Richards tweeted this photo indicating Perry’s a great guy to work for and posted, ”Mr. Tyler Perry makes sure we have fresh flowers in our trailer every week…so lovely!”

The Sheen-Richards camp has been staying in Buckhead. We’ll tell you where after they leave. #notstalking.

A source spotted Sheen last night running a pretty mundane errand in Buckhead and said he looked very thin but otherwise low-key. He was pleasant and soft spoken, our tipster says.

Richards seems pretty low-key, too. She flies commercial and opts for comfort. Here’s a blog post in which she details the outfit she chose for the flight to Atlanta a few weeks ago. She appears to be standing in an airport security line.

“It was important to me that I looked put-together, but that I would still feel relaxed during the almost four-and-a-half hours on board,” she wrote.

From her Twitter timeline it sounds like she’s about wrapped up with her part in “Madea’s Witness Protection.”

I have enjoyed Denise’s kind Twitter words about ATL and I hope she comes back. I really enjoy having the celebs like Charlie Sheen, John Travolta or Jennifer Anniston here. Makes things more interesting and my guess is they like it too because they can move around without being hounded too much.

@Jeff is correct about the Pink Pony as I received the news from a bartender. Our sources are better than Jennifer’s and we don’t get paid for it. Winning!

Sometimes, I understand exactly where Charlie was coming from during his more than public melt down. He vocalized his economic anxiety. It’s complete frustration. You threathen a man’s income and it’s Katy bar the door. As for me, it’s been years since I had a bump in personal income, while all my expenses have been on the rise. Just the cost of fuel, groceries, insurance have all soared. Except, I can’t proclaim any term like ” winning”. I guess mine is more like ” Whining”.

Kids? Charlie probably “got with” his ex and then went over to the Pink Pony for more.

And people don’t want gays and lesbians to have kids or get married! Yes, by all means, let’s allow Charlie Sheen and people like him to maintain the “sanctity of marriage” and show us what a proper family looks like.

Really miss Charlie on “Two and a Half Men.”
He actually made the show.
But I do hope he has pulled himself together. He has so much to offer and to be thankful for.
I think deep down Charlie is a very good person.

@Atlhoho

Please, explain to me your reasoning for your less than flattering remark about our blog host. What is your motive? Name calling for sheer fun of it? Does it make you feel smug? Please, tell us what you do for a living? Then, please allow everyone open access to comment on you work ethic and performance in an open forum.

I confess, I post the occasional snarky comment about the featured celebrity but not an unwarranted attack on our host.

It’s supposed to be a light spirited blog about visiting celebrities. Nothing more.

Look before I leap...

ATLhoho’s comment says quite a bit more about his/her questionable lineage than it does about Jennifer’s.
It’s pitiable that he/she is such a sad, bitter littler person.

Happy 1M Jennifer.

Who the Hell would pay money to see another Media movie. Sorry Madea. I guess the same fools that think Obama is doing a good job and plan to vote for him again.

We saw the couple this weekend at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta. They were walking through the penguin exhibit. Charlie was wearing big thick black glasses and walking around talking on the phone. Denise was guiding the kids through the exhibit. Once noticed they were not there for very long but Charlie did shake hands with many of the people walking around the aquarium.
