Adrienne Maloof of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
All of Charlie Sheen's talk of tiger blood, Adonis DNA, and winning makes for great tabloid and Twitter fodder, but it's more than a little shocking to the actor's friends, like Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Adrienne Maloof.

"Charlie's been our neighbor and our friend for quite some time," Maloof tells USA Today. "Yes, it's a little disturbing some of the things that he says, and I don't really know Charlie to be that way."

Little disturbing? The troubled actor's recent bizarre rants have developed a fan base of their own -- the self-described "unemployed winner" blinked and gained more than a million followers on Twitter. Adrienne's not one of them, but she insists there's no bad tiger's blood between the neighbors.

"I give him my support and love," says the petite business powerhouse. "He's really actually a wonderful person and I just don't understand this other side to him, and hopefully he works though this."
