The top 12 men got the semifinal round of American Idol off the a VERY strong start last night. Diverse and talented, the group made it a pleasure to live blog the 90 minute show.

While we'd accept arguments on behalf of Casey Abrams, Jacob Lusk or Paul McDonald as best of the night, our vote goes to James Durbin. A rocker whose confidence, range and overall personal is reminiscent of Adam Lambert, Durbin was nothing if not original.

Every Charlie Sheen interview and quote is more hilarious than the previous one, until we're forced to remember: the guy is a father of five. He's somehow been the primary parent of two-year old twins during the last few weeks of partying and ranting.

But that's no longer the case. Hours after Brooke Mueller successfully filed a restraining order against her ex-husband, authorities arrived at Sheen's house last night and took little Bob and Max into custody.

Charlie Sheen may be granting time to every media outlet in the country (Chuck, call us!), but there's one person the crazed actor won't be speaking to:

Brooke Mueller. She has been granted a restraining order, TMZ reports. Los Angeles Superior Court has banned the star from going within 100 yards away of his ex-wife. He also cannot have any contact with her.

New details have emerged on Christina Aguilera's recent arrest, and they don't make the singer or boyfriend Matthew Rutler look very good.

Sources tell TMZ that Christina and her man dined in a private room at posh Los Angeles restaurant Osteria Mozza until well past midnight. Deep into a couple bottles of wine, a fellow patron reportedly recognized Aguilera, asked the waiter to send her a drink and was told: "She's already drinking a bottle of wine... or two."

Lindsay Lohan is almost lost in the shuffle these days.

With Charlie Sheen stealing all of her tabloid thunder, the train wreck and alleged jewel thief can't even get any major PR for an interview on Extra.
