Well, you’ve gone and done it now Charlie.
Just when I thought I could spend my time writing about the other terrible things unfolding in this crazy, mixed up world, you decide to fully publicly implode.
After a profanity-laced tirade during which he repeatedly bit the hand that feeds, well fed him, Sheen’s bosses did the unthinkable (At least in terms of revenue) and gave him a gift – the “Golden Network Axe”, and cancelled Two and a Half Men!
At least for the rest of the season. Had you there for a minute, right?
“Based on the totality of Charlie Sheen‘s statements, conduct and condition, CBS and Warner Bros. Television have decided to discontinue production of Two and a Half Men for the remainder of the season,” the short statement from CBS says.
Here’s a sample of Sheen’s latest debacle on talk-radio, primarily directed at two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre.
“I violently hate Chaim Levine [Chuck Lorre],” he said on Thursday, calling from the Bahamas. “He’s a stupid, stupid little man and a pussy punk that I’d never want to be like. That’s me being polite,” reports TMZ. In a missive to fans, Sheen called Lorre a “contaminated little maggot,” adding, “I wish him nothing but pain in his silly travels especially if they wind up in my octagon.” The same day, he told Radar via text message that he’s poised to complete negotiations for a HBO show called Sheen’s Corner. Sheen would be paid $5 million an episode for the program where he would invite guests to ”focus on the truth and the absurd!”
What’s interesting to me is the fact that Sheen started this latest firestorm from the comfort of the Bahamas where he’s supposedly vacationing (from what?) with his ex-wife Brooke Mueller, adult film star Bree Olson and ‘nanny’ Natalie Kenly! Multiple news agencies, including Entertainment Tonight, are reporting on this foursome but the story is small potatoes compared to this latest dish.
I just don’t know how much more damage Charlie can do, but I wish he would keep it confined to his little twisted porn paradise. Haven’t the rest of us suffered enough as a result of these celebrity train wrecks?
