Julia Roberts Leaving Hollywood? FOX Investigating Paula Abdul?
July 29, 2005

Rumors are flying again in Tinseltown, and from Charlie and Denise to the beautiful Julia Roberts, "Extra" is giving you the 411 on Hollywoodís hottest stars.

Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards were once one of Hollywoodís golden couples. Then came the shocking news of their divorce just before the birth of their second child. But now, Inside TV has reported that the couple is trying to work things out, and that they are even seeing a marriage counselor. So is it true?

No -- Since Richards filed for divorce back in March, Charlie has remained very involved with the couple's two baby girls. But Sheenís publicist told us the rumors are not true.

Sheen is now filming episodes for the third season of his hit sitcom "Two and a Half Men," and Richards is working on her new show, "Sex, Love and Secrets," which debuts in September on UPN.

On to our next rumor, we all know that former "American Idol" contestant Corey Clark claims judge Paula Abdul coached him while the two had a secret affair. But is the FOX network now investigating Abdul?

Yes -- Although Abdul has denied the charges, calling Clark a "liar" and an "opportunist," FOX wants to find out the truth for itself. Auditions for season four will begin next month, and Paula will be there even if the investigation is still going on.

And finally, is Julia Roberts saying goodbye to Hollywood?

Believe it or not, yes she is. The Oscar winner has signed on for a 12-week run on Broadway next spring. Roberts will star in a family drama called "Three Days of Rain."

Julia says she's fulfilling a dream. Meanwhile, Robertsí close friend Denzel Washington recently finished a Broadway run of his own.
