It saddens me that this is considered news. Charlie Sheen calls in sick. I do that all the time, and often for similar reasons.

Is that what we are calling it these days? An ear infection? Last time, with the hotel incident/hospitalization, it was an adverse reaction to medication. Remember when Lindsay Lohan would get too hammered to make it to work, especially during the filming of Georgia Rules. Heat Exhaustion is I believe what her people called it. Look, you can call it whatever you want to call it, but at the end of the day a spade is a spade and a hangover is a hangover.

The Machine really screwed the pooch on this. He is on a downward spiral. CBS is paying way too much money for this show.
Time for Sheen to fade away.

Oh no he didn't. Sheen partied so hard that he lost his head and could not find his ears. Guess what? The dr. won't be able to find the ears either. Way to blow off work Charlie.

To all the Charlie Sheen haters, remember: he went to the doctor--and then to work. Most people, myself included, would take the whole day off.

Try not to be so jealous of Charlie, his money and lavish lifestyle. If I could spend even one night partying with Charlie, I surely would, as I guess most, if not all of you would if given the chance.

I wonder why Charlie feels like he has to buy @$$?!?
If you look at the pics of him, he's not THAT bad looking.
He's not head turning hot either though.
Middle of the road, I'd say.
He does have that "bad boy" thing going for him though...that's always a plus.
He's straight up honest abt it too.
He's got the money and there will always be willing women so let the man be.
