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.

A highly functioning addict doesn't lose a show that pays $1.2M per gig. A highly delusional addict does. See you at a meeting.

I really think Chaim Sheen is mentally ill disturbed and that he has irrevocably damaged his brain. He just is NOT cute, funny or entertaining anymore. Even if there is a way to restore a semblance of what he was through multiple treatments, I will not watch anything he's in or was in. I'm over him.

Charlie thinks much too highly of himself. His time slot is being filled by a lame comedy sitcom about two morbidly obese overeaters... Mike & Molly. But at least, as far as I am concerned, it is good for a laugh now and then. That is more than I can say about Two and a Half Men. If Charlie is worth $1.8 million per episode of Two and a Half Men then Billy Gardell and Melissa McCarthy is worth $10 million per episode of Mike & Molly!

he really needs to get sober and to get a clear mind. and you don't get sober over night, nor within a month! being sober is a thing you will have to work on the rest of your life. he doesn't only need to get rid off drugs including alcohol but also visit a psychologist to see why he needs to be high at all!

well and by the way, cursing God, his church and his bible, won't bring you blessings for your life. you reap what you sow, Charlie!

I hope you'll find a way to bring order to your life.... one day... God bless you!

Sex, drugs and the break down of modern society? You should ask for 50 million, 10 is too low for a starting bid.

Here I am trying to make a Charlie Sheen joke on twitter but it's over capacity yet again. Probably those silly revolutionaries using twitter again to rally and organize to over throw their local dictator. How rude.

It's kind of pointless to post to twitter anyway. I only have one follower and I don't even think it's a real human. I appears to be an advertisement for soccer equipment. It's sort of like having Tom as a friend on Myspace except he sells soccer balls.

Hey look at that, Charlie check out itunes.com

I just read on apple.com that you can directly upload any type of book and sell it without having to worry about an publishing rights.

Charlie at apple.com and even amazon.com you sell your book for any price you want. Why settle for 10 million dollars when you can take all the money?


Your book will sell 20 million copies at least right? That's your pitch when you ask for 10 million, 20 million units sold?

Okay Charlie then just open yourself up an itunes and amazon account and sell your book directly. Sell your book on itunes and we can all download it to our iPads. You can even upload your book to Amazon and we can read it on our Kindels.

Charlie did you know Amazon has sold over 200 million Kindels in the past two years? That's alot of digital books. More money for you Charlie. Skip the Publishing house go right to Digital.

Why give 60 percent of your book sales to a publishing firm when you take %95 of gross sales back home with you with iPad? It just doesn't make sense Charlie. Sell your book on iTunes and Amazon, keep all the money for yourself.

Such a waste of talent and potential... This addict has now turned into a miserable human being, and will self-destruct everything around him.

Twitter is one 13 year old girl making 137 "ilovejustinbieber" monkiers all linked together to create "billions" of twitterers. Right.

10 million? He'll just blow it all on booze, drugs, booze, prostitutes, and more booze anyways! Why not donate to a worthy cause, like Alcoholics Anonymous? Seriously, he is such a sad, self-destructing person. Hope he finds God and Salvation, before he ends up like Michael Jackson, from an O.D. of drugs, and self-loathing!
