HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Charlie Sheen may face 45 days in jail for assaulting wife Brooke Mueller in Aspen last Christmas, but a source says he's most worried about being able to smoke behind bars. The actor's criminal defense attorney has been asking local law enforcement if they'd be willing to make an exception to the jail's no-smoking policy. Authorities say they aren't likely to make an exception to the rule, which has been in effect for 10 to 15 years. The Two and a Half Men star is likely to end up in Aspen, Colorado's Pitkin County Jail, which allows nicotine patches for inmates. Nicotine gum is not allowed to prevent gum from ruining the carpet.

Fox executives on Monday promised to boost a sagging American Idol as they outlined plans for a new season. Fox will finish the 2009-10 TV season as the second most popular network behind CBS but first among the 18-to-49-year-old audience it targets for a record sixth straight year. Fox's most compelling mystery for next season remains: Who will replace Simon Cowell when he leaves American Idol this month?

Demi Moore is ready to tell all. Demi is meeting with different publishers in New York about penning an autobiography.
