Sheen Donates $1 Million to the USO

Charlie Sheen is planning to share the wealth with our nation’s troops…

The 46-year-old part-Spanish actor has announced that he’ll donate one-percent of the profits from his new FX series Anger Management to the United Service Organizations Inc. (USO), guaranteeing a minimum donation of $1 million with an unlimited cap on the final donation amount to the military aid organization.

“It’s an honor for me to be able to give back to these men and women of the military who have done so much for all of us,” said Sheen of his donation. “They put their lives on the line for us every day, and I’m just happy that my work on Anger Management can bring a little bit of relief to the troops and their families.”

This donation marks the largest contribution ever from an individual to the organization as well as the first time the USO has received a percentage of the profits from an actor’s television show.

The first installment of the donation is $250,000 and will be handed over later this week in a private ceremony to Sloan D. Gibson, President and Chief Executive Officer of the USO.

The funds from Sheen’s donation will be used towards an entertainment facility for injured military troops in Bethesda, MD.

“The USO would like to thank Charlie Sheen for his very generous $1 million donation to our Operation Enduring Care Campaign and his interest in helping us lift the spirits of those who have endured so much to protect the freedoms we enjoy daily,” said General John I. Pray, Jr., Executive Vice President and Joint Chief of Staff, U.S. Air Force. “His support is greatly appreciated, especially from our wounded warriors and their families.”

The USO is a private, non profit, non-partisan organization whose mission is to support the troops by providing morale, welfare and recreation-type services at hundreds of locations around the world.

Sheen’s new show Anger Management airs Thursdays at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT on FX.

The program claims that a source close to Cruz and Bardem, who will reportedly be appearing on screen together in The Counselor, confirmed that the Oscar winning actress is expecting her second child, less than two years after the arrival of their first child Leonardo was born.

In a recent interview the Vicky Cristina Barcelona star admitted that she’s enjoying her role as a housewife and mother, describing it as the “best thing in the world.”

Cruz, currently appearing in Woody Allen’s To Rome With Love, married the 43-year-old Bardem in a secret ceremony in the Bahamas in July 2010, some 12 years after they first met on the set of 1992 film Jamon Jamon.

Ramirez Gets Hitched on Fourth of July…

Sara Ramirez is no longer a single lady…

The 36-year-old Mexican American Grey’s Anatomy actress and singer married her longtime partner, Ryan Debolt, on Independence Day.

Sara Ramirez
“On July 4th 2012, after a year long engagement, Sara Ramirez and Ryan Debolt were married in an intimate ceremony in New York. The private event was attended by close family and friends,” confirmed Ramirez’s rep.

The Tony-winning actress got engaged to Debolt, a Los Angeles-based banker, while in Paris last summer.

Ramirez, who is also a singer/songwriter and has appeared in such Broadway musicals/plays as Spamalot, was featured in Grey’s musical episode, “Song Beneath the Song,” in March 2011, and then followed that up with the release of her first EP.

She recently worked with youngsters in narrating Prokofiev‘s Peter & the Wolf in performances by the San Francisco Symphony Youth Orchestra.

Pitbull: Alaska-Bound?

He’s commonly referred to as Mr. 305… But Pitbull may soon have to start calling himself Mr. 907…

As part of an exclusive marketing deal, Walmart will send the 31-year-old Cuban-American rap superstar to the store that received the most “likes” on its Facebook page.


Right now, the leading candidate is Kodiak, Alaska. And there might be a reason.

A writer for The Boston Phoenix newspaper thought it would be comical to send Pitbull to the most remote Walmart possible, and is encouraging people to “like” the Walmart in Kodiak.

And, so far the ploy seems to be working.

The Kodiak Walmart had more than 35,000 “likes” Monday, more than five times the town’s population.

Kodiak has a significant lead in the contest to land Pitbull, but actual numbers weren’t immediately available, Walmart spokeswoman Sarah Spencer said.

Walmart shoppers have until July 16 to like their local stores and pull ahead of Kodiak.

“I know Pitbull is hoping his Miami Walmart shoppers start liking their Facebook page,” she said.

That would require some heavy lifting, with one Miami location sitting tight with 45 “likes” Monday.

“He’s definitely coming to Kodiak if Kodiak wins,” she said.

It would be the rapper’s first visit to Alaska.

Pitbull, who is touring Europe, seems to be taking the contest in good nature. “Wherever the fans want to have a party, I will be there,” he said in an emailed statement sent Monday from Austria.

Kodiak Island is about 225 miles southwest of Anchorage. It’s home to the nation’s largest Coast Guard base, and the island is known for its Kodiak brown bear population.

That fact wasn’t lost on Pitbull, who tweeted Saturday: “I hear there’s bear repellant at Kodiak, Alaska (at)walmartspecials.”
