Billy V 1/13/16: Charlie Sheen, Star Wars and Na Hoku Hanohano Deadline

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Charlie Sheen is back on his HIV medications after seeking out alternative treatment in Mexico. On Tuesday, Sheen appeared on an episode of The Dr. Oz Show to reveal that he had stopped taking his HIV medications and was seeking alternative treatment in Mexico. But later Tuesday Sheen's manager (Mark Burg) said Sheen was back on his medication following the taping of the episode, which took place December 8.

SPOILER ALERT FOR STAR WARS FANS!  J.J. Abrams isn't directing Star Wars: Episode VIII, but he knows a lot about it. Questioned about the theory that new Star Wars heroine Rey (Daisy Ridley) could be a Kenobi or a Skywalker, Abrams teased, "I know quite a bit. Obviously, it's not for me to talk about in this moment because this is Rian story (SW XIV Director Rian Johnson) to continue now and the last thing I'm going to do is reveal something that he would be upset about." Asked if it's hard to hold onto such a big secret, knowing Rey's identity, the all-knowing Abrams joked, "Not for me!"
