Brooke Mueller was spotted out for the first time at the 9th Annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball on Saturday. It was her first public appearance since the Christmas Day incident with husband Charlie Sheen.
She wasn't wearing her wedding ring and spoke about her future:
"Mentally, I feel really clear and spiritually, I feel really connected. I'm doing good. [I learned to] put my priorities straight, and to focus on doing the next right thing in front of me. As long as I do the next right thing, I'll be all right."
She also brought up her twin sons with Charlie, Bob and Max, saying:
"They're fabulous. They're just so perfect, I love them so much. I hope to be the best mother I could be. Everything else is secondary."
As for the future projects she says there are "a few opportunities" coming her way:
"There are one or two that look really interesting, really interesting. I'm looking forward to the future."
And with no mention of Charlie?
Looks like the future won't include him!
