It had to happen sooner or later, didn’t it?
“Charlie Sheen has voluntarily entered an undisclosed rehabilitation center today,” spokesman Stan Rosenfield announced yesterday.
I guess he figured it worked so well for Lindsay Lohan, why not give it a shot?
After yet another bender jam-packed with drugs and porn stars, Sheen’s body finally made him an offer he couldn’t refuse – “Get help or die!”
Of course, the usual vultures came out to feast on the carcass of this story.
“Due to Charlie Sheen’s decision to enter a rehabilitation center, CBS, Warner Bros. Television and executive producer Chuck Lorre are placing ‘Two and a Half Men’ on production hiatus,” a CBS statement said. “We are profoundly concerned for his health and well-being and support his decision.”
“What can we do?” one of Sheen’s CBS bosses complained, according to E! Online. “He shows up to work on time. He’s polite, and he makes us hundreds of millions of dollars.”
Exactly, as long as the Golden Goose was popping out ratings eggs, nobody at the network cared what he did. Now it’s not only come back to haunt them, it’s going to hit the bottom line.
And that they care about.
