Charlie Sheen may have been ousted from “Two and a Half Men” in favor of Ashton Kutcher. But don’t think for a second that he’s out of the television game. According to insiders, he is thisclose to inking a deal for a comeback show. You know, because he’s been gone for so long. We have no idea exactly what the series will be—beyond that it’s created by Charlie for Charlie—but rumor has it that there will be 10 episodes in the first season. The word on the street is that Sheen is working with Lionsgate TV on the show and that TBS has been the highest bidder so far, only the network claims that isn’t the case and that they aren’t even in discussions. Huh?
Perhaps sometime this week we’ll hear what Charlie has planned for this new show. But in the meantime, we’d like to gift him with eight concepts for his return to the small screen. Keep reading »
“I get into the good stuff about my marriage because people have only gotten the rotten stuff. There was a beautiful love story between us … I went through a lot and I get asked a lot of questions about that time in my life so I figured that I would share my story and, hopefully, anyone that is dealing with challenges will know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. We had one of the worst divorces so if we get into a good place, that’s great.”
—Denise Richards shares with reporters what they can expect in her memoir, The Real Girl Next Door, which will be released in late July. Apparently, anyone expecting a smear of Charlie Sheen a la their divorce trial will be sorely disappointed. As will anyone expecting Shakespearean-level writing. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
“Ashton Kutcher is a sweetheart and a brilliant comedic performer. Oh wait, so am I!! Enjoy the show America, Enjoy seeing 2.0 in the demo every Monday, WB. Enjoy planet Chuck, Ashton. There is no air, laughter, loyalty, or love there.”
—Charlie Sheen reacts to the news that Ashton Kutcher will be replacing him on “Two and a Half Men,” the sitcom he was fired from before losing his marbles. Interestingly, sources say Ashton will be making $650K to $700K an episode, which is an insane amount of loot but still far less than Charlie’s price tag of $1.8 million an episode. So it looks like producer Chuck Lorre might be the one who is winning most of all, what with the publicity and savings per episode? [People] Keep reading »
With Charlie Sheen out at “Two and a Half Men,” everyone’s been wondering who producers will hire to replace him on the insanely popular TV show. Well, I haven’t been wondering because I think that show is garbage, but this isn’t about me. Sheen was apparently in favor of his pal Rob Lowe stepping in. Hugh Grant was rumored to be up for the role, but negotiations “broke down” at the last minute. Well, it looks like a replacement has been found and it’s … Ashton Kutcher? Keep reading »
“Brooke’s an open book. She’s not afraid to show who she is. She’s not afraid to tell the truth. And as a producer of the show, I love that for TV. I love someone who’s not afraid to show everything. We’ve been friends for years … Brooke doesn’t mind that [Charlie and I are] friends. She knows that I met him before I met her.”
—Paris Hilton talks about Brooke Mueller, who will be for her new show “The World According to Paris” what Nicole Richie was for “The Simple Life.” Brooke is, of course, Charlie Sheen‘s ex who he allegedly pulled a knife on during a Christmas day fight in 2009 and who more recently accompanied him and his goddesses on that trip to the Bahamas. We’re guessing Charlie’s recent meltdown will do for Paris’ new series what her sex tape did for her maiden voyage into reality TV. [People] Keep reading »
“Here’s the good news — my goddesses have already f**king approved [Mila Kunis]. She’s pre-approved! I would have great tolerance for many missing items provided it involves Mila f**king Kunis: If Mila Kunis is stealing your s**t , trust me, you’re still f**king winning, you’re still winning at that moment … I’m going to go on her Facebook page and discover her likes. I’m going to buy them all and then she can come steal them. A super f**king hot thief named Mila Kunis. Mila, please, we we have a warehouse full of your favorite s**t to steal.”
– Charlie Sheen announced who he’d like to be third goddess to join his harem and the lucky lady is “Black Swan” actress Mila (f**king) Kunis. An unexpectedly talented and classy choice, I must say. I’m sure Mila is so flattered. I’ll bet you anything, right now, she’s packing her bags — but leaving behind her dignity — and calling a cab to take her right on over to the Sober Valley Lodge. Yep. Charlie should probably expect the doorbell to ring in 30 minutes, give or take, depending on LA traffic. (This is the “bitch, please” look I imagine Mila will give upon hearing this news, BTW.)

It’s no secret that Charlie Sheen is gross and scary with a capital ‘S.’ And that the people who have shelled out $80 to see his disaster of a stage show, “Violent Torpedo of Truth,” have made a questionable decision. But I am truly baffled by the audience of more than 3,000 in Cleveland who, upon Charlie’s urging, began chanting “F**k that bitch!” with him in reference to his ex-wife, Denise Richards.

People spend their money on all sorts of crazy things—for example, Shake Weights and baby powder pink Hummers. But it still baffles me that folks are paying upwards of $80 to see Charlie Sheen‘s “Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not An Option” tour. I mean, his rantings are all over the interwebs … for free.
Apparently, the appeal of the show isn’t to love on Sheen. Judging from the reaction he got opening night, maybe it’s to hate on him, too. Keep reading »
