Charlie's 'Assistant' Mum on Being Bad Influence

2/1/2011 11:38 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen's assistant, Rick Calamaro, muzzled up when a photog asked him about a TMZ story yesterday -- that virtually everyone in Charlie's circle believes Rick is a bad influence on the actor.

Rick Calamaro
Rick -- big in the L.A. nightclub scene -- used to party hard with Charlie back in the day. But as we first reported, Charlie brought Rick back into his life last summer -- as his "assistant." 

Rick was with Charlie at The Plaza Hotel during the now-famous Capri Anderson incident. He was in Las Vegas last month during Charlie's bender. And Rick was at Charlie's house last week when Charlie partied with the porn stars.

Rick, who says he doesn't like reading about himself, is being blamed by various people connected with "Two and a Half Men" for being a central negative force in Charlie's life.

But he likes chocolate milk.

Is it just me, or does this guy look suspiciously like Adam from "Mythbusters"? I'm just sayin.

While I must agree that Sheen is solely responsible for his own decisions, my background as a "freelance grip" back in the day reminds me that often, people like Calamaro latch onto people like Sheen. Calamaro's a leech, and got a hold of Sheen. Sheen most likely didn't see it coming. He should have. Charlie has a weakness, and shamefully, he decided to let his guard down.

This is what vultures like Rick Calamaro do. They get a hold of someone like Sheen, and take everything they can out of him. (Notice Calamaro didn't look concerned about Sheen.) In spite of the comments on his looks, Calamaro must be pretty good at his craft to be driving around in that Merc. (if, in fact, that IS his Mercedes.)

An old saying rings true even these days: "You are judged by the friends you keep".
