I hope he OD's sooner than later. He was in NYC with his children and couldn't even take a break for a few days from the partying. He is a pos, period.

He still gets the easy women (blame urselves easy women!), and the big pay days. I don't think he's lost anything.

He needs a straight jacket more than a sober coach.

This story may be valid. A few days ago, Charlie was tweeted by someone who simply stated, "I can help!" Clicking on the link brought up the woman's Web page which listed her background as a sobriety coach.

I noticed a couple of days ago, the tweet had been deleted. So, maybe Charlie reached out to her and she was hired. I hope it helps him to not abuse alcohol and drugs.

good... brooke is another one of those drunk women who thrives on fueling their partner's drug/alcohol rages...

you know, he's not the first poor schmuck she's done this to either. I honestly think she gets some sort of sick joy out of getting hammered and starting fights to watch her significant other get arrested.

i don't condone sheen's behaviour but there are many men and women in hollywood who seemed hell bent on making those around them look bad so they can make themselves look good.

Another star using rehab as a crutch. When will the insanity stop.

How absurd. GO TO AA like all other alchoholics. Look.. you are not a movie star, just on a hit show RIGHT NOW, those shows DO end, remember Friends, Sienfeld, Raymond, King of Queens, ALL of those folks go away are never really restored to any kind of A-list status. He looked really old and haggard on his show last week, I do believe all really is starting to crumble. The show wasnt even that funny... even the best shows go off the air.. then what?????

Charlie is gold to CBS.
He's never held up production, and the ratings keep on climbing......

There's no such thing as bad Charlie Sheen press. Two and a Half Men climbed in ratings Monday night following a week of ongoing rumors and controversy surrounding the CBS star, proving once again that viewers shrug off his tabloid-headline habits.

Men (13.6 million viewers, 4.7 preliminary adults 18-49 rating) was up 7% for an episode titled "The Crazy Bitch Gazette." With Men resuming production this week, Sheen is expected to be back on the set today.

The comedy rose along with the rest of the CBS block despite heavier competition from Fox this week.

CBS' How I Met Your Mother (9 million, 3.7) was up 16%, Rules of Engagement (8.8 million, 3.4) gained 13% and Mike & Molly (3.6) -- coming off some controversy of its own last week -- rose a tenth. At 10 p.m., Hawaii Five-0 was also up slightly.

ABC aired the 200th episode of Dancing With the Stars (19.7 million, 4.0), down 7%, with Castle (11.8 million, 2.8) down at least a tenth.

Fox's final game of the World Series gave the network the nightly win. The game drew 14.9 million viewers and a 4.2 adult demo rating. That's down about 17% from last year's Game 5, though up about 13% from the lowest Series of all time two years ago.

NBC's Chuck (5.5 million, 2.0) gained a tenth, while a Women of SNL (5.4 milion, 2.0) special held its lead-in.

The CW's 90210 (2.1 million, 1.0) and Gossip Girl (2 million, 1.0) were steady in the demo, though reached season highs among total viewers.

hope the sober coach is not a woman
please guys
he is still being enabled by the people who let him work on his show and get paid a gazillion bucks per episode
everything is swept under the carpet so he continues to do it
he is allowed to do everything
he will always be an addict he will always be abusive he will always have hookers drugs etc
he can't stop because he is allowed to
HE SHOULD BE IN JAIL AND THEN WHEN HE SERVED HIS TIME GO INTO A REHAB CENTER
and not be allowed to work on his show
enough of this loser

Uh    

The lack of being able to edit a msg prior the activation of same, the lack of a msg filter to control spam ( or the lack of using same) indicate an unsophisticated messaging system and staff.

I bet the 'sober coach' has DD breast implants and looks great in a thong.
