CHARLIE Sheen has blamed his drinking for his alleged attack on wife Brooke Mueller.

The Two and a Half Men actor, who was arrested on Christmas Day after reportedly assaulting his spouse with a knife, has told friends he felt "awful" about his actions but knows it wouldn't have happened if he had stayed away from alcohol.

Despite the alleged attack, Sheen is determined to make his third marriage last for the sake of the couple's nine-month-old twin sons Bob and Max.

Sheen, 44, and 32-year-old Mueller are said to be having marriage counselling in a bid to save their 19-month union.

Sheen was arrested for second-degree assault, menacing and criminal mischief while the pair were holidaying with family in Aspen for Christmas.

Details of the phone call made by Mueller to the police have been revealed.

She said: "My husband had me with a knife and I'm scared for my life. I thought I was going to die."

l Simon Cowell wants to create a cartoon series.

The music mogul, who earned an estimated $75million (about R555million) last year, is a big fan of animated show The Simpsons but admits he is jealous of its worldwide success.

He said: "Their appeal is broad and it makes a lot of money. You kind of hate them for making so much money.

"Maybe I should start a cartoon one day."

Cowell, 50, has previously made cameo appearances on the show - but admits he only took part to preserve his youth.

He explained on the TV show The Simpsons: Celebrity Friends: "It's the best thing to get the call. You last forever and are young forever on that show, so I love it.

"The only reason for doing it is to look good and stay young forever."

The American Idol and Britain's Got Talent star recently signed up to make another appearance on the cartoon, despite admitting his last appearance didn't go well.

l Kevin Jonas bought his new wife glass slippers to wear at their wedding so she could feel like Cinderella.

The Jonas Brothers singer wed Danielle Deleasa in a romantic ceremony on December 19 and was determined to give the nuptials a fairytale feel.

He told People magazine: "I knew that my princess needed her glass slippers and her castle. I've never seen a more beautiful bride."

The couple, who had been dating for two years, held their wedding breakfast in a heated marquee decorated with an enchanted forest and icicle-shaped crystal decorations.

Deleasa added: "I always wanted my wedding to have that princess feel. I couldn't have imagined this."

The wedding went ahead despite a blizzard threatening to ruin the nuptials, and was attended by 400 family members and friends, including Demi Lovato, who starred with The Jonas Brothers in Camp Rock.

Deleasa, who was led down the aisle by her father Thomas Deleasa, also wore a silk-and-crystal flower in her hair because she was wearing one when she met Kevin in the Bahamas in 2007.

Jonas's brothers, Joe and Nick served as his best men, while the bride and groom recited traditional vows and exchanged Jacob and Co. wedding rings they'd designed for one another. - Bang
