Charlie Sheen plans to go to work on ‘Two and a Half Men’ this week rather than dying in a frenzy of hookers and cocaine, his manager told TMZ on Sunday.

Mark Burg, who said he went to Sheen’s house to check on him to make sure he wasn’t nearly dead, said he found the actor eating a turkey sandwich and asking for a copy of this week’s script. ‘He looked as normal as he’s looked in a long time,’ Burg told TMZ.


Guess it’s easier to visit Sheen in person in his gated community than to, say, reach him by phone to see how things are going? Probably, given the relative ease with which bad drivers seem to snatch up cars out of the neighborhood.

The story that Sheen was on a binge of hookers and blow and ‘is going to die this week’ came, in the wake of his allegedly drunken meltdown at the Plaza Hotel, via RadarOnline. Burg called the account ‘fabricated lies,’ and according to Gossip Cop said that Sheen was simply watching Brett Favre and the Vikings lose.

Radar’s also the source of a report that an assistant allegedly found the actor last Monday night naked in a New York restaurant bathroom with cocaine on his face after trying to have $12,000 worth of sex with a porn star -- all that alleged to have happened before the hotel brouhaha in the wee hours Tuesday. Don’t get us started on the $5,900 bottle of vino and the Denise Richards drop-in.

Sheen, 45, was hospitalized on Tuesday for a psychiatric evaluation and returned to L.A. that night. Porn star Capri Anderson, a.k.a. Christina Walsh, reportedly feared for her life in that hotel room last week and intends to file a civil complaint against the actor, her spokesman said. The 22-year-old actress didn’t file a police report in New York. Wife Brooke Mueller revealed Friday that she and Sheen are separated and no longer live together. ‘I have nothing bad to say about him,’ she told photographers. What a difference a year makes.
