Brooke Mueller -- How to Juggle Parenting and Rehab

4/20/2011 3:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's a safe bet ... Brooke Mueller didn't get any tips from Dr. Spock on being an engaged parent and a rehab patient ... but she's figured it out to the satisfaction of the custody judge.

Sources tell TMZ ... Brooke's most recent rehab -- for drug use -- is only part time.  She's an outpatient by day, and a mommy at night. 

Brooke's arrangement was good enough for the custody judge, who ruled she was still able to take care of her twins per the custody agreement she struck with Charlie Sheen -- with a little help from a small army of nannies, of course.

The judge did make one change in the agreement -- both Brooke and Charlie must now submit to random drug testing once a week -- more frequently than before.

Mr.WHORE-LOCK - You might need to hire poster Nancy as your new
attorney. Listen to her - and STOP taking porn stars with you
into FAMILY court!!! THAT'S why you screwed up your custody
hearing, you FOOL! And since you are suing all these people, you might want to sue whoever it was who told you you were funny...oh, that would be YOU! You need new glasses if you think your ''goddesses'' are half-way close to beautiful...total skanks!

Sonja less than a minute ago So the drug addict who keeps using, who failed to comply with a court ordered agreement to stay clean and has physical custody of the kids is the 'better' parent huh? right...


I guess when the alternative is Charlie Sheen then your answer is yes...according to a judge! But I don't think many people think Brooke is a better parent, but the situation where the kids are with her parents there helping is definitely a better stable situation right now. Those boys have known the grandparents their entire lives

I just really think if brooke wanted to be sober and stay sober and listen to most expert she would take time out of being mommy and go to a long term rehab and then sober living facility and she needs time to worry about her self and only her self and not have go back to the life that makes her use and stressed out that will trigger her using before she can take care of her kids and I know charlie didnt listen to experts but intill he uses we cant say he needs to go to rehab but if he does slip then he needs rehab and he doesnt need to do it his way. anymore

@Nancy: Previous TMZ articles and other sources are reporting shared legal custody, with Brooke having primary residential custody and Charlie having visitation. (E.g., the New York Post this morning: "The couple will continue to share custody of the tots under an existing arrangement."
Do you have a source asserting Brooke has full legal custody?

*****

The following would indicate that she has legal and physical custody, as he would not be seeking to "strip" her of it if she didn't have it:

"Gross says he'll ask the judge to strip Brooke of both legal and physical custody, on grounds that Brooke has relapsed and checked back into rehab."

Ok so some are so unhappy that Charlie didnt get custody. I am happy it remained the same....neither of them should have custody, not for a long time...Lets assume that the judge deemed them both unfit,( which basically they are right now)...does this not mean that the custody of those boys would go to the courts and to strangers...right now they are with their grandparents, happy and safe, yes I am sure there are nannies,children of the rich no matter who all have nannies. I totally think the judge made the right decision.

@Nancy: The quote you provide doesn't say she has *sole* legal custody; if they have shared legal custody, he'd be seeking to strip her of her share. That's my question: does she really have full custody and he's trying to get full custody, or do they have joint shared custody and he's trying to get full custody? My understanding was that the latter was correct.

@pegnew

Charlie already has a highly paid, very competent, family law attorney. The problem here is the fact that NO ONE can MAKE Charlie do anything he doesn't feel like doing. No one can put a muzzle on the guy out in public - or doesn't seem able to so far.

And a muzzle is about the only thing that's going to keep all this garbage from spewing out of his mouth as long as people still laugh at it. Charlie does not seem to have a filter that tells him when people are laughing AT him, as opposed to laughing WITH him. Really quite sad when you get down to it.

Just skimming, it would appear that you are right, and they share joint custody per the agreement that was implemented in March. I'm going to see if I can't find the article I was reading that straight out said that she had sole custody but, failing that, you are correct.

I agree both are way to unfit right now to really have custody those kids im sure are fine with brooks parents even if they raised a drug addict doesnt make them bad people same with martin sheen and company they all seem like nice people for the most part and I know brookes parents maybe havent helped her in everyway to get sober but im sure they would do anything to get sober so hopefully they keep or will do that its just a sad situation for those kids maybe brooke has learned her lesson this time with staying sober and charlie will keep sober I mean when a drug addict slips it doesnt make them hitler we all know deep down in side they prob really want to be sober but both of them need to stop ****ing around and man up for these because there kids are getting older and are going to start understanding and reading what there parents are doing and those kids will prob hold a grudge on them if they dont shape up.

@Nancy: "Charlie's bid for sole custody was shut down, despite the fact that Brooke fell off the wagon in a big way last week. So both parties keep the custody rights they had when they reached their settlement March 10." If not joint custody, what custody rights did he have? (Visitation is not custody.)
