Every TV network, radio station and newspaper is all about Charlie Sheen. Even on the video screens at gas stations have audio, talking about him. I don’t think that a hermit could escape the world’s following of this off-kilter man.
What an exciting few months for Charlie Sheen, right? After being hospitalized for partying too hard, The Warner Brothers studio canceled a small amount of episodes from the remainder of this season’s hit show, “Two and a Half Men.” The motive behind this was to give Sheen a chance to complete rehab and return to work in an improved way. Instead of concentrating on himself, his actions were….well, everyone living everywhere, even under a rock, knows about Sheen’s rantings.
So, now the execs have fired Sheen for his bashing of the bosses. The question remains; will the show go on? My vote, yes. While both Rob Lowe and John Stamos have been potential replacements, only Lowe has gone on record, having turned down the work. Lowe has signed a multi-year contract with “Parks and Recreation.” I would like to see Stamos back on TV. I think that his fine-tuned acting skills would leave him being a natural fit to the very famous cast.
Sheen thought he was untouchable, THE show. He was the main character, but the thing about an ensemble cast, is that each member of that cast can be replaced. Looks like Sheen is about to find out he isn’t bulletproof.
His personal, well not-so-personal life isn’t going very well either. Soon-to-be ex-wife Brooke is involved in a custody battle with him over their twins, Bob and Max. As we all know, the boys were removed from his house, because of alleged death threats that he made to her. It was just published on TMZ.com that the two have reached an agreement for child visitation/custody. I am sure though, that in 30 minutes, this information will be out of date. Hopefully Sheen has learned to stay off of Twitter.
Ex-wife Denise Richards has also kept her kids at a distance from this entire mess. Not able to attend his daughter’s birthday party, but he did manage to put a call through to her. He is wanting to have a party for her at his house this Saturday,but Richards has put her foot down. I can see a second custody battle in the works, can’t you?
So, besides going on every news media show he could think of, besides Nancy Grace (don’t blame him for that, she would have devoured him); Sheen is busy writing up lawsuits. His latest is the report that he is suing Chuck Lorre, producer of “Men”, and Warner Bros. for $100 Million. His lawyer claims that Sheen was fired when he was sick, which is state and national law.
There is also the rumors about a new “Major League” movie, and a porn show, “Two and a Half Women”….
So, with all that is going on in Charlie Sheen’s life, it is no wonder he is hiring an intern to help him out. How many people have applied? Well, a small number, 74,000. With that many applicants, he is going to have to hire someone to hire the intern.
This whole situation is just a mess. The man has issues, and to say the least, needs some help. It is honestly sad to watch what fame, money and drugs to can do a person. For those of you ready to go a day without hearing about Sheen, well those days are probably far, far away.
