To those of you too busy reading about the historic uprisings in the Middle East, let me catch you up really quickly on the ongoing turmoil in the faraway country of Charlie Sheen. The millionaire sitcom star has been publicly self-destructing. Years of alleged substance abuse, marital problems and bizarre behaviors have, apparently, climaxed. Over the past week or so, he has seemingly divided like a cell into multiple versions of himself and simultaneously appeared on every live television talk show currently being produced. But like most modern celebrity scandals, the personal immolation we’re witnessing isn’t really about the vaguely human celebrity whose antics and flaws and outrageous moral lapses are beamed from dozens of differently shaped boxes directly to our brains.

It’s the week that Charlie Sheen came unhinged. Since production on his uber-popular sitcom “Two and a Half Men” was derailed over fallout from his latest bender, the star has been on a frenzied media blitz — apparently to promote the drug he says he’s on, “Charlie Sheen.”
The feverish interviews have teetered between neurotic and delusional. His self-described “grandiose” behavior has led some to speculate that the 45-year-old actor may have bipolar disorder.
“He looks bipolar — he’s in a particularly manic phase,” celebrity psychology expert Stuart Fischoff tells PopEater. “His reality testing has been severely impaired, marked by delusions of grandeur. His head now is as large as the moon.” Read more… Keep reading »
Just when Charlie Sheen finds his babysitting goddesses, Brooke Mueller files a restraining order against him and has authorities pull their sons, 23-month-old twins Bob and Max, from his house. Brooke says Charlie took the boys on February 26 and hasn’t allowed her contact since. “I am very concerned that he is currently insane,” she said in the biggest “no duh” statement of the year. “I am in great fear that he will find me and attack me and I am in great fear for the children’s safety while in his care.” [People]
Charlie, of course, is taking the battle to the media. Keep reading »
Charlie Sheen just can’t stop talking, can he? Over the weekend, he invited cameras into his home and introduced them to his two “goddesses”—a porn star named “Rach” and a model named “Natty“—the two women who are living in his home, which Sheen has now fittingly dubbed the “Sober Valley Lodge.” On one hand, these two ladies sound like glorified babysitters. “We run errands, we eat, we play with the kids. We watch movies,” Natty describes in the clip above. But on the other, their arrangement sounds pretty dirty. “We have two beds in the bedroom and it is a 2-1 switch off,” Charlie explained to Howard Stern. “They will take a separate bed and then I have to choose.”
But their connection is deep, Charlie swears. “These women don’t judge me. They don’t lead with opinion. They don’t — they don’t — they don’t lead with their own needs all the time,” he explained. “Maybe the three of us will get married. I don’t know. It’s a polygamy story. It’s a polygamy story. All my guy friends are gonna like throw tomatoes at me. It’s like an organic union of the hearts.”
So who are these two? After the jump, all you need to know about Natalie Kenly and Rachel Oberlin. Keep reading »
Anna Goldfarb at the blog Shmitten Kitten has an active imagination. This post originally appeared on her blog. Enjoy!
Charlie Sheen is a nutjob so I used his real quotes and imagined we were on a blind date. Enjoy:
Me: Thanks for meeting me here. I’ve heard good things about this place.
Charlie: I’m still alive, which is pretty cool.
Me: Yeah, it is. Janet told me a lot of things about you. Most of it was good. (laughs nervously)
Charlie: I have a 10,000-year-old brain and the boogers of a seven-year-old. Keep reading »
