Still Winning

I'd hate to see what losing looks like.
As you probably know by now, Charlie Sheen has been fired from Two and a Half Men. After what seems like an endless barrage of interviews about his ‘winning philosophy,’ his goddesses, his tiger blood and his incessant biting and nipping at the hand that has fed him for the past eight years, it’s over.

I am kind of getting tired of watching celebrity melt downs (Mel Gibson, Lindsay Lohan). In fact, I have not once sought out information about the pipping hot mess that is Charlie Sheen. Instead, I’ve had it forced on me at every turn. I can't turn on a television, listen to a radio show or surf the web without seeing Sheen.

So what now? I don’t know and neither does CBS. Although Sheen is out, the show might not be over. It is ironic though. It was Sheen’s bad boy antics that the character of Charlie Harper was actually built around. The part created as a vehicle for Charlie Sheen has to find another Charlie Sheen to play Charlie Sheen.

Sheen still insists however that he is winning. He released a statement today that said:

“This is very good news. They continue to be in breach, like so many whales. It is a big day of gladness at the Sober Valley Lodge because now I can take all of the bazillions, never have to look at whatshiscock again and I never have to put on those silly shirts for as long as this warlock exists in the terrestrial dimension."

You have to wonder if a reality show isn’t in Charlie’s future. I mean, the guy is a reality producer’s wet dream. A celebrity living with two women, with two gorgeous baby mommas, a former (maybe current and future) drug user who gallivants with porn stars and oh yeah, who is completely off his rocker. The only question is whether it will air on E! or VH-1.

I haven’t ever watched even one full episode of Two and a Half Men, so it doesn’t even register as a blip on my TV radar. However, I wonder if fans of the top rated show will want to see John Stamos or another actor try to fill Charlie’s shoes (I wouldn’t want to be anywhere near Charlie shoes because there’s no telling where those shoes have been or what they’ve done!).

In other Sheen related news, one of the goddesses, Rachel ‘Bree’ Olsen, walked out on Charlie and the other goddess, Natalie Kenly, on Friday night. After taking some time to cool off, she returned to Sober Valley Lodge. It was all good. Bree tweeted, “I chipped one of my warlock fangs on a great white shark I had to murder. Pissed me off and like an ass I took it out on her.” Uh-huh.

It's definitely sober living at The Sober Valley Lodge...
