Spokesmen: 'Enormous speculation' about Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller split is untrue

LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) - Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller want the world to know their "martial trials and tribulations" have not split them up.

"Please let us clarify this: They are not seeking a divorce nor has one been contemplated," their individual spokesmen said in a joint statement Monday.

Yale Galanter, speaking for Sheen; and Mark Burg, representing Mueller, said they wanted to correct "the subject of enormous speculation in the media" that has spewed forth online since Sheen's December 25, 2009, arrest on domestic violence charges. FULL POST

'Treme' recap: Barq's root beer and a coffee-fueled Crescent City

It's Christmastime in New Orleans, but only John Goodman's in a festive spirit. Four months after the storm, things are far from 100 percent and it's fraying the nerves of the characters in "Treme."

Creighton Bernette (Goodman) has taken to YouTube for a Barq's root-beer fueled rant; Janette DeSautel's restaurant is forced to close for a night because the gas to the stoves won't stay on; Albert Lambreaux can't get his insurance money; and Davis McAlary loses a wheel and some musical equipment because of a "Cave of Mystery" pot hole on the West Bank.

The characters are surviving – in this episode, on coffee. They've chosen Cafe Rose Nicaud on Frenchman Street as the coffee stand of choice. While it is December, I suspect many of those patrons are drinking cold-brewed iced coffee. It's a year-round kind of drink in the Crescent City. FULL POST

Lynn Redgrave, a member of the famed Redgrave acting dynasty noted for her roles in "Georgy Girl" and "Gods and Monsters," has died. She was 67.

Redgrave's death was announced by her children.

"Our beloved mother Lynn Rachel passed away peacefully after a seven year journey with breast cancer," the children - Ben, Pema and Annabel - said in a statement. "She lived, loved and worked harder than ever before.  The endless memories she created as a mother, grandmother, writer, actor and friend will sustain us for the rest of our lives.  Our entire family asks for privacy through this difficult time."

Redgrave was the daughter of actor Michael Redgrave, sister of Vanessa Redgrave and aunt of Joely Richardson and the late Natasha Richardson. She first gained fame for 1966's "Georgy Girl,"  a comedy about an upbeat woman making the most of Swinging London. The role garnered her an Oscar nomination. She was nominated more than 30 years later for "Gods and Monsters," in which she played director James Whale's housekeeper.

Over the decades, Redgrave appeared in several movies and many TV shows, including recent appearances on "Ugly Betty" and "Law & Order: Criminal Intent."

A funeral is scheduled for later this week.

Conan O'Brien: I didn't get screwed by NBC

Conan O'BrienIf there’s one thing Conan O’Brien - former "Tonight Show" host and current touring comedian – wants the world to know after his "60 Minutes" interview, it’s that he’s doing just fine.

“I’m doing great,” he told CBS correspondent Steve Kroft Sunday. “I hope people still find me comedically absurd and ridiculous and I don’t regret anything.”

At the moment, it doesn’t look like O’Brien has much to frown about anyway. After getting kicked out of his post at NBC's "Tonight," O’Brien has rebounded with the aforementioned tour, a very active Twitter account and a contract with TBS for another late-night program, to start in November preceding George Lopez on “Lopez Tonight.”
