He just can’t leave well enough alone.
I swore off writing about Charlie Sheen long ago, but you can’t ignore a fire that burns at the edge of your consciousness. Sheen was one of the few celebrities that was gifted enough to justify ignoring his many public failings (Robert Downey Jr. is another) but he has fallen so far so fast that I find myself endlessly fascinated by him.
His latest debacle?
He called in to TMZ Live on Thursday and started in on Two and a Half Men, saying, “I’m tired of lying. I’m tired of pretending the show doesn’t suck. I’m tired of pretending Ashton doesn’t suck. I’m tired of pretending like, they’re not completely adrift. Because when you take away the anchor of your show, you’re adrift. … These guys are like approaching salvage vessel, you know?”
Of course, he took aim at his replacement, Ashton Kutcher, albeit indirectly. “I just feel bad for him. He’s saddled with such bad writing.”
He also admitted he still watches the show that gave so much to him; quite a shock, right? “When the show was good, it was great. But now, there’s just nothing about it that’s interesting. I forget that it’s on the air. It’s kind of leaving your child behind with somebody and them not really taking very good care of it.”
Like he could ever help himself.
I suppose Sheen just couldn’t stand Whitney Houston hogging the spotlight by dying.
Sorry, Charlie, but even with Tiger Blood pumping through your veins, you can’t compete with death.
