Brooke Mueller

Checks in to

Brooke Mueller
has had a change of heart ... and has checked herself in to a full-time rehab center  ... TMZ has learned.

Mueller's rep, Steve Honig, tells TMZ, "After further reflection and consideration, Brooke has decided to remove herself from the media spotlight and has entered a long-term in-patient treatment center where she can focus on her recovery without distraction."

"She has already arrived at the facility and, out of respect for her privacy, no further information will be released about her treatment. Brooke’s goal is to maintain her sobriety and she believes this is the best option to reach that goal."

“Brooke will retain custody of the children, who will remain in their home and familiar surroundings and be under the care of their longtime nanny. Charlie and Brooke’s parents fully support her decision and everyone recognizes the importance of maintaining the children's normal routine."

Brooke had previously decided she would enter an outpatient rehab program to be with her kids -- so much for that.

Brooke was seen boarding a private jet in Los Angeles last night ... presumably headed for her rehab center. Mueller was seen smiling and chatting with her entourage before getting on board.

No word on where the rehab center is located.

I love how the rep states that her goal is to "maintain her sobriety". That implies that she's currently off drugs and alcohol and wants it to stay that way, lol. What a crock.

Not sure why Brooke is in the media spotlight, other than having her PR people notify TMZ, Radar, and other outlets about her antics and where she can be photograpped.

This is the sad truth about Hollywood. Hugely insecure people with too much money wanting to be loved by their fans.

If this crazy bitch were anyone else, she'd have her kids taken away from her. She doesn't deserve her children, she's clearly too selfish.

Run, run, RUN TO REHAB BROOKE!!! RUN FROM THE LAW!!! Your children should be running away from YOU! What a shameful and selfish crackhead you grew up to be. You CAN'T FIGHT the cocaine posession, YOU had it, maybe you weren't going to sell it, but you still OWNED a qualifiable sales amount. Honig is a waste of gastric media space, who would believe him anyway? How old are you now? Ten years of getting high constantly? GROW THE F-C- UP! The D.A. aren't buying your, "OH POOR ME", excuses and want you IN court Dec. 19, 2011, NOT 2012, so good luck with the creepy crawl back to rehab freedom. What I wouldn't do FOR my kids to have any amount of the money Charlie throws at you to give your kids over to a NANNY! Sick woman you are!

3mos... I'm healed. Anonymous contribution to the Judge and Prosecuter's Office by an Anonymous party. Case closed. Back on drugs. That's the going routine for the celebs these days.

You are a looser, no talent. The only thing you are famous for is being Charlie's wife and a crack head. Try getting a job , all you know is living off your rich mother , then moved on to Charlie's bank book. What ever you ever done that's not a total waste? Those kids need to go to thier father for good. Without 5k a month you would have to get a real job and do something with your life.

Because it is the only option to stay out of jail, keep those kids and ultimately the monthly support she receives (cha ching!!), she'll do rehab. It's sad. She'll never be sober until she has nothing to buy drugs with.

There is no private jet.

She is going to rehab so that when she goes to jail, she won't have to go through withdrawl as bad as it would be from coming straight off the pipe into a cell. Smart move Brooke.
She will NOT get any sympathy in jail and she knows it. Better for her to curb the craving now with help from a Dr rather then cold turkey when the judge sentences her for her drugs.
Good luck Brooke, you're going to need some.

All this woman does is collect Charlie's $55,000 a month, do drugs and party. Could you imagine if she had to live in the real world (40-hour-a-week job, watching her monthly expenditures)? She wouldn't last one week.
