Read this: Tiger Mom comes to D.C., Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez, Mark Ruffalo

By The Reliable Source

(Astrid Riecken for The Washington Post)

Amy Chua thought her "Tiger Mother" memoir would be greeted as a charming David Sedaris-esque exercise in self-deprecation. But for her Politics & Prose reading on Friday, her critics came to judge her. Even those (or maybe especially those) who haven't bothered to read the book yet.

Sorry, no Charlie -- but Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez stopped by Georgetown on the charm offensive for their new still-seeking-a-distributor flick (directed by the son, starring the dad)... And Monica Hesse dissects Mark Ruffalo's slacker-dude appeal. "It's supposed to be one night of fun, and three years later he's still sitting on your couch and somehow you're paying for his dental insurance."... The Reliable Souce will return online Tuesday and in print Wednesday.

Charlie Sheen's ex, Kacey, the one carrying Sheen's baby, Kacey Jordan resembles Heidi Montag, but real, natural, and without the baggage Montag seems to carry everywhere. The irony is Kacey Jordan might get offers from Hollywood like Sasha Grey, whereas Heidi Montag has offended everyone - Recently the film producers and executives in that Jennifer Aniston project that audiences forgot the first week it came out. Heidi is a disaster. Kacey has a market. Maybe her agents should visit her in Pahrump before Harry Reid outlaws prostitution near Las Vegas, Nevada.

Charlie Sheen wants to write a book? When do we start? I want to publish Charlie Sheen's book. Sex, drugs, shock rock, TV entertainment, stars in the adult industry, Wall Street movie maker, when do we start writing, Mr. Sheen?

See Sheen is a genius. He is going to milk this attention. Promoter, entertainer, Charlie Sheen will find away to make some serious money off this chaos he has created. It is not shock rock like Howard Stern, Keisha trying to be naughty, or Christina falling from the stage with Brittany Spears behind her. Charlie has a sound story, great comedy, and a market that will buy his books off the shelves.
