The Sheen Scene

Charlie Sheen has been all over the news lately.  It's like the Michael Jackson interview from a few years back... I want to stop watching, really I do, but for some reason, I just can't.  Any chance that he's remaking that crazy Joaquin Phoenix documentary?

Over the past few weeks, Charlie Sheen has bragged about hitting seven-gram rocks, called his girlfriends "goddesses" and said that he's always "winning".  He even claims that he himself is a drug and that he has tiger blood running through his veins.  (I know somebody who tried to buy a gram of Charlie Sheen once.  Turns out it was only Emilo Estavez cut with meth.)

It's clear to see who the "half man" is on Two and a Half Men.  In short, he's a total nut job.

Sheen has admitted to alcohol, drug and prostitute addictions that no high-dollar rehab facility can cure.  And I'm not even sure that he wants to be cured.

Is this a publicity stunt?  Personally, I don't think that there's a PR rep inventive enough to script this stuff.  And, Charlie Sheen's not that good of an actor.  Check out his "Sheen's Korner" podcast (video posted below).

But I must admit that I've never had any interest in Charlie Sheen until recently.  I'm not alone because XM has just launched "Tiger Blood Radio": a station strictly devoted to 24/7 updates on Charlie Sheen.

Is he really doing and saying that much stupid stuff?  Why, yes.  Yes, he is.  He makes cocaine addicts thankful that they don't do that much cocaine.

Yesterday, he was officially fired from Two and a Half Men.  CBS will not pay him his contracted rate of $2 million an episode (remember when everybody freaked out over the Friends cast getting $750,000 an episode?).  But I'm happy to read that the rest of the cast and crew will be paid out for their contracts.  It's like paid vacation for them.  Take that, tiger boy.

John Stamos was rumored to be replacing Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men, but CBS has officially announced that there is no truth to that rumor.  However, Martin Sheen has not yet gone on record about the rumor that he asked John Stamos to replace Charlie Sheen as his son.

Charlie Sheen established a Twitter account, and by the next day, he had over 1 million followers, setting a new Twitter record.  Sheen's antics have beaten out Libya's story in the news for two weeks.  

What the heck is wrong with us?  Well, we love dirty laundry, we love to watch a star rise and fall, and apparently, we love to watch a man wave a machete from a 50 story building rooftop.

After nuclear war, the only things that will survive are cockroaches and TMZ.
