The Charlie Sheen Saga

Sigh. Really, I’m pretty sick of this entire story and wish it would just disappear. In fact, this is why you have seen no updates coming from the Yak about him, and will probably rarely see one in the future. Our members are keeping tabs on this ongoing saga in the Forum HERE, but otherwise, headline news we have decided he is not.

The only upside I see to this whole debacle is Sheen is hogging up the press wires, giving us a reprieve from “Bieber fever”. Did you know his hair sold on ebay for $40,667? Yeah see, a reprieve thank goodness!

As for Charlie, you see, I already have an addict in my family, who is Mr. Sheen, except without the money, fame and media coverage. Well, there is another distinction… Mine is humble and has a great big heart, when sober. I live this saga and really don’t need to see this on my television. That said…

For those who would like a quick general recap of things, we decided to throw out everything we know about what he has done, said, others have said etc. in one short(ish) update. Leave us a comment and let us know what you think below.

  • 2/24 – Sheen berates his boss on a radio show, throws out his real name “Chaim Levine”, calls him a whole slew of nasty things. Maggot comes to mind. The production of Two and a Half Men gets halted.
  • 2/24 – Sheen says he is in talks with HBO for his own show, ‘Charlie’s Corner.’ HBO denies any such thing.
  • 2/25 – Rant continues with texts to Good Morning America, again boss bashing.
  • 2/27 – Sheen schedules sit down interviews with the media, telling ABC they would have the exclusive. He then proceeds to talk with NBC.
  • 2/28 – Sheen wants a raise from 2 million per episode, to 3 million per episode.
  • 2/28 – Sheen says he will sue CBS and Warner Bros. for $300 Million for pulling the plug on the rest of the Two and a Half Men season. He said “I’m out of a job. I got a whole family to support” as for the reason.
  • 2/28 – He apologizes to Chuck Lorre for referring to his real name in a radio interview. He said it was a joke.
  • 2/28 – Sheen denies he suffers from Bi-Polar disorder, says he is “bi-winning”. “I win here. I win there.” Admits he was “banging 7 gram rocks” as to his drug use, but claims he is sober now. He says the last run he was on would make “Sinatra, Flynn, Jagger, Richards look like droopy-eyed, armless children.” (editors note: Something to be proud of.)
  • 2/28 – CBS announces the crew will receive compensation for the outstanding episodes not filmed. Sheen takes credit for that.
  • 2/28 – Sheen’s publicist quits. The next day, Charlie would tell Howard Stern that his publicist quit via text message, and that his publicist’s “feelings are coming from his ego and from his emotions, and I don’t have time for either one right now because we’re fighting a war.”
  • 3/1 – In an interview to NBC’s Today, Charlie, in response to footage of anĀ appearanceĀ made by his father (Martin Sheen) and brother (Emilio Estevez) in which they expressed concern, said “They tried. But I said, you know, I’m not ready, I’m not interested in your rhetoric right now. I appreciate your love, your compassion, if that’s what you wanna call it. But I’m 45 years old, and I’m not interested in people treating me like a 12-year-old.”
  • 3/1 – Sheen puts down John Stamos as a potential Two and a Half Men replacement saying “I like John, but he doesn’t have what I have and the show sucks if he’s on it.” He also says that it would be nice if any of his co-stars (Jon Cryer or Angus T. Jones) would back him up, saying everything Charlie says is the truth.
  • 3/1 – John Stamos responds, via Twitter, that “contrary to the rumors, i am not replacing charlie sheen on two and half men. however, martin sheen has asked me to be his son.”
  • 3/1 – Les Moonves, President of CBS Corp. says he wishes Sheen “would have worked this hard to promote himself for an Emmy.” He had no news on whether or not Two and a Half Men would return or not, but says financially, this isn’t hurting CBS.
  • 3/1 Sheen has interview with Howard Stern wherein Stern praises him for being special, that he should have his own radio show, and talks about what the sex is like at home with Charlie and his goddesses.
