7. How They Met
Brooke Mueller seemed like a good change for Charlie Sheen, who was reeling from a nasty custody battle with his ex-wife, Denise Richards. Not much was known about Mueller when they first started dating, except that she had gone from working as a real estate agent to walking the red carpet on the arm of the then-highest paid actor on television. She had also been trying to make it as an actress, but was unsuccessful. It was Grey’s Anatomy star Eric Dane and wife Rebecca Gayheart who introduced Sheen and Mueller back in April 2006 at a birthday party for director Brett Ratner.
