Trouble on the ‘Anger Management’ set


Shocker of shockers: Charlie Sheen is making waves on Anger Management, reportedly forcing out Selma Blair.

In a statement, producer Lionsgate confirmed Blair’s therapist character won’t be back. Rumor is the two actors clashed, and Sheen threatened to bolt unless Blair did first. Insiders told The Hollywood Reporter the Cruel Intentions cutie criticized Sheen’s work ethic (ha!).

On Twitter, she thanked fans for their love and support. TMZ reports Sheen has extended an offer to Mila Kunis to be his next guest star. Doubtful Ashton Kutcher would sanction that. First off: It’s just too weird. Secondly: They’re busy. Hello! magazine is saying the Two and a Half Men star, who replaced Sheen on the NBC hit, has already proposed to Kunis and they are to wed soon in the English countryside.

“You can ask me anything about Ashton,” Kunis told Italian magazine La Donna. “I won’t answer. . . . But I can tell you that love is great, love is wonderful and it’s all around us.”

Labor drama

Us Weekly is reporting that Kim Kardashian gave birth five weeks early due to preeclampsia. Her blood pressure was “skyrocketing,” an insider told the mag, and the baby was “in distress.”

Photo op?

Almost a week after disturbing photos emerged of Charles Saatchi grabbing the neck of his wife Nigella Lawson’s throat, the couple was back at the same restaurant in London, drinking wine. Nothing physical went down this time.

Fashion faux pas

A Milan court convicted Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana of tax evasion. They were found guilty of failing to declare 200 million euros ($268 million) through a Luxembourg company to authorities and given a one year and eight months suspended jail sentence. They were ordered to pay a penalty of about $670K.

Days like these

Madonna says there were days she was exhausted during her recent world tour, but she pressed on. You won’t see those rough behind-the-scenes moments in her new film, The MDNA Tour, which premieres Saturday on Epix, a cable and online network. Madonna, 54, said she had nights in which she would cry and say, “I don’t want to do this.”

Hard times

Joe Manganiello’s road to stardom was bumpy. The Magic Mike looker, 36, told Men’s Health July/August issue that he hit rock bottom after playing Eugene “Flash” Thompson in 2002’s Spider-Man. A few months after the shoot ended, Manganiello was kicked out of his house for not paying rent. “Lost my car. Lost all my clothes. Furniture. The sheriff gave me five minutes to collect my things in a duffle bag.” His recurring role on HBO’s True Blood set him on the right financial track.
