Sheen's Uncle Looks to Capitalize on Charlie's Rehab

1/29/2011 10:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

UPDATE: Joe Estevez tells TMZ the guy claiming to be his manager is just an acquaintance and does not rep him at all. He calls the whole thing a "total and complete fabrication."

Charlie Sheen's uncle, Joe Estevez, is looking to cash in on the problems of his nephew ... by lobbying for Charlie's role on "Two and a Half Men" while Charlie is in rehab.

Charlie Sheen's Uncle Rehab
TMZ has obtained a letter sent from Joe's manager to Chuck Lorre, the creator and EP of "Men." The letter describes Joe as "by far the funniest of the Sheen & Estevez clan."

Joe's manager throws out the idea, "Chuck, just a wild thought ... How about a test episode of 'Two and a Half Men' where Joe comes to house sit while Charlie is on 'vacation?'" Good to know Charlie's family has his best interest at heart.

Oh my god, this post reminds me of why I left Perez Hilton's website... where do I go now? Radar? I thought TMZ was different. Whever wrote this (Harvey I am sure) should go back to the basics. Dont put your opinions into your posts. It's not objective and it makes me sick because I know you have just influenced 30,000 readers to hate on Charlie's uncle... uhm... Harvey, stop it... you know better and stop squinting on TMZ live... put on glasses or go back inside.. you look 75 years old out there.

Estevez family blames everyone else for their demented behavior. Nothing new, you break the law and pay to avoid jail.

Joan Crawford did this same exact thing to her adopted daughter Christina when she was in the hospital for an ovarian tumor/cyst. She jumped in and tried to revive her career by subbing for Christina on her soap opra. Disgusting. No shame. Unbelievable.

Well at least now when TMZ says that "a source" told them something about Charlie, we can make a strong first guess that THIS is the nabob talking to TMZ.

What a putz.

I'm thinking "Uncle Joe" could use rehab himself. He seems to be desperate for attention. As for the television show--I like the show despite Charlie Sheen--not because of him.

Uncle Joe needs to take a spot in the back of the line behind the drug dealers, hookers, porn skanks, tv executives, and Alex Jones truthers who are all already exploiting Charlie. With his permission and cooperation of course.
