Shhh! Don’t tell Denise: Charlie is the top TV earner
He hasn’t been in a decent movie since Platoon but Charlie Sheen doesn’t care. A new poll by TV Guide shows he’s coining it in, thanks to his role on lacklustre sitcom, Two and a Half Men. Apparently, Sheen gets $825,000 for each weekly episode.
That’s more than enough to keep money-grabbing ex Denise Richards in the style she is accustomed to. She might now want to get her hooks into Sheen’s fellow CBS star William Petersen, who takes home $600,000 an episode for portraying investigator Gil Grissom on the hit police drama “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.”
Meanwhile, despite all her complaining about the mean script writers, Katherine Heigl is the best paid female TV actress, raking in $13 mil for her role on Grey’s Anatomy. It’s unlikely she will complain about that.
