Sheen

Shopping Book Deal --

Starting Bid $10 Mil

2/26/2011 5:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen tells TMZ he's writing a tell-all book about life on the set of "Two and a Half Men" -- with details about what led up to the final implosion -- and he wants at least $10 mil for the publishing rights.

Charlie Sheen Book Deal
Sheen tells us he wants the world to know what really happened behind-the-scenes of the show during his 8-year run ... the good times and the bad ... and he plans on naming names -- including co-stars.

We're told Sheen even has a title in mind -- "When the Laughter Stopped."

Sheen says even though he's still working on the book -- he's expecting a bidding war for the publishing rights ... starting around $10 mil.

As TMZ first reported, "Men" honchos shut down production for the season after Charlie told us he wanted to fight creator Chuck Lorre.

Why didn't Chuck use his brain and hit Charlie where it hurts? Why didn't he fire Charlie and replace him with Emilio. That'd piss off Charlie and although him and his bro might come to blows, it's the best thing for the show and it's crew. All those jobs did not have to be lost.

I think Charlie should become a preacher and charge people admission at the door.

Yeah, thats it! THATS the ticket!

Aren't there enough preachers already selling tickets to heaven? That area of show business is pretty full.

This guy is a jackass. He has no regard for the hundreds of people who will no doubt be out of a job due to his antics. Grow up, Charlie.

Wait a minute - wasnt all this precipitated by Charlie OD'ing on crack cocaine, which required a hospital visit via ambulance?

Where are cops in this?

Where is the rehab?

Does the fake book tell about his fake sharing of crack with cast and crew?

Whats it really like smoking a large bowl of crack using the AddictoMax 3000 Bong?

Does he visit his fairy land when he is sober too? Or does it just sound like it when he is on radio?

If you had the BALLS you claim to have you'd write your candyass book about the dealer who sold you crack. You have no balls. You would never expose your drug dealing master to the public.

You beg a country to condemn the military for causing 911 yet you hide your drug dealing masters in the shadows.

Your life is a lie. You have no power.

Charlie Sheen you are an insect scurrying away, fearing for it's sad pathetic life.

Paint yourself a man of conviction while you whisper in secret begging for your next coke high. Drug addict, you won't be missed. You're a stain buried below mountains of integrity that will forever suffocate you.

In his own words:
emails to Richards: For example, on Aug. 22, Sheen wrote to the mother of his children: "You are a pig. A sad, jobless pig who is sad and talentless and, um, oh yeah, sad and jobless and evil and a bad mom, so go [expletive] yourself, sad, jobless pig."
That’s not all. In other e-mails, Sheen ridicules Richards’ mother, who is undergoing treatment for breast cancer. "Go cry to your bald mom, you [expletive] loser," Sheen writes.
Email to their children's nanny: "The girls won’t remember you or even care about you. You couldn't have done worse if you tried. Thank God they’ll no longer be exposed to someone SO WEAK. Go have a kid of your own. Maybe that way you’ll stop ... confusing the fake kids for a real one. Oh, but that might take some guts. Something you so obviously lack with hopeless vacuity."

So, evidently, nothing has changed and the vitriol we're hearing now is not drug withdrawals but who he really is and always has been - Same old Charlie and if these emails prove anything, the co-stars of 2-1/2 are probably not coming to his defense for a reason.

Just a point of annoyance about Charlie... He recently had "Death from Above" tattooed on himself after watching Apocalypse Now too many times. "Death from Above" is the motto of airborne military units. It's a matter of pride with these guys and to tattoo that on yourself when you've never been in the military and, certainly are not jump qualified, is a pretty good reason to have your ass kicked. That was a very ***** move on your part, Charlie. It's no different that those idiots who claim military honors and yet have never been in the military. Going to pin a Medal of Honor on yourself next, Charlie?

=======================

Point made - he is just a dime a dozen, scouring for a way to keep up his lifestyle.

I think next he is going to write a script and sell it for 100 BILLLION dollars (seen Dr evil) about his life.

He will write the outline and have a ghost writer fill in the blanks.

It'll go like this.

CARLOS ESTABACHE-VAN

A history

1. Born to known actor

2. Started od'ing and acting entitled early on

3. Failed at too many movies, got well paying sitcom job saying the same dirty sex jokes over and over and over - pretty much his dream job

4. Fires himself after smoking the AddictoMax 3000 CrackBong.

5. Dont forget to sprinkle in wife beating and porn star whoring. Please

AddictoMax 3000! Haha!

"I will sell my autobiography for one billion dollars! Then my superfoxy hookers (they only appear ugly to you stupid mortals because you're un-evolved and hypnotized) will move to an island off the coast of Costa Rico and I'll will star in my own version of Two and a Half Men but it will be called One Man and Two and a Half hookers (note to self, hire midget hooker to be the half) and Chuck Lorre will never be invited to come watch it until he fights me in the octagon!"

My husband has been sober for going on 5 years now. I do not imbibe as a rule because I'm usually with my husband and I like to show solidarity in his quest to stay sober. (I was never a big drinker any how) I think Charlie Sheen is surrounded by "YES" people. Could someone please tell this man "NO!" Perhaps if Charlie did buckle down and write a book, this would be good therapy for him. Just lock the liquor cabinet, take his cell, and maybe a wonderful author will arise.

If they hold off writing the book for a bit they can also include an In Memoriam to Charlie.

And they called MJ whacko! There's no way this drug addled, sex addicted fruit cake can be in withdrawal. As long as we, the people encourage his crazy behavior, the longer it will be before he hits his real bottom. Charlie is becoming delusional and I hope NO book company bids on a book written by him. I'm afraid he's perilously close to the same end met by MJ, Elvis and so many other uber rich junkies :-(

Too bad these posts don't include sound effects. Your line with a rim shot at the end would have been awesome. Well actually it was awesome anyway but the rim shot would have made it even awesomer... is that a word? Awesometistic? Awesometastic?
