Finally an actor with the balls to tell the rest of the world what Hollywood is really like. If Charlie wasn't making so much money for what he calls these "turds", they'd have heaped in a dumpster in a millisecond. But with so much at risk and Charlie making a smidgen of what the "turds" are making, I sure if he stays within rehab he'll do fine. Go Charlie, expose Hollywood for what it really is!

I think that Chuck isn't ignorant and that what he may say will be interesting. It is possible that he has the goods on these execs and the way things are done may not be as clear and correct as they're supposed to. chuck has the ability to blow the lid off a lot of people and their secrets and i wouldn't be surprised if they are trying to get a gag order as we speak. Chuck always turned up and knew his lines and was professional according to reports from cast etc. Makes me wonder what else happened that made him say screw you? maybe hes had enough, maybe it will open up an understanding of where he went off the rails and why. Al i know is if you've crossed chucky these are very dangerous days indeed and i look forward to the whole thing being played out once and for all. my money is on chuck xxx

By any standard, he's mentally ill. Media outlets wouldn't put a raving street person on the air, so why does having a home qualify Sheen for air time? I'm not calling for a boycott or blacklist, but I think all media outlets -- TMZ included -- should voluntarily stop talking about a very ill person. No interviews on the newscasts and news shows, no jokes on late night TV, no morning radio show call-ins, and no reports about what he's doing. Just do it out of simple human compassion for a person who's seriously ill. The attention he's getting is feeding his illness. If you were interviewing someone with heart disease, you wouldn't take them to McDonalds. If you were interviewing a drug addict, you wouldn't take them to a crack house. Whether Sheen wants to get help or not is up to him, but stop giving him public attention. And that includes you, TMZ. "Just reporting on what he does" has the same effect as jokes by Leno and Letterman, it gives him the attention he seems to believe is his divine right. Johnny Carson stopped doing Nixon jokes after it was reported he was drinking heavily and walking around the White house mumbling to himself. Sheen should get the same and if you won't stop because he's mentally ill, then stop because everyone is sick *of* him. Look at the few posts that support him. Their average IQ is room temperature. No one will miss reports about him.

He just doesn't know when to quit. Not good enough to make a damn fool of himself on the net....has to do it on national tv, too. He's just nailing his coffin shut.

And what kind of idiotic things are going to fall out of his mouth during this interview? All he is going to do is 'whine and complain' about poorly he was treated during the past 8 or 9 years on 2 & 1/2 Men. And by poorly, I mean a regular salary, the times that CBS gave him off the show to take care of her personal issues during these past 8 seasons, the syndication monies, the DVD dividends, and contract/negotiations to get him to come back for another two seasons as the highest paid actor on television today ($1.2M) per episode.

Charlie has completely come undone. He does not give on iota about anyone but himself, his ability to call 'foul' on his bosses, because he FELT he wasn't being treated properly, so what does he do, he just and goes out and blows his salary on coke and whores. Not only that, but he literally screwed the people that he said he would do what he could to help them out while he was in rehab, which he has not done. Instead he just unhinged his mouth for all of this CRAP to fall out.

So instead of helping the people that helped him get to where he is at today (tv/money, etc et-al) he just CRAPS all over them so he can PROTECT himself and get more money, if not from CBS/Warner Bros., for working, but by going to ABC to do this interview. I wonder how much ABC agreed to FORK over for an hour with this DOUCHE BAG!

I have lost complete and utter respect for his man. He has been given chance, after chance to get his act together and at every turn all he does is just go back to his old ways of ADDICT BEHAVIOR.

CBS had better get this right and start the legal proceedings for the loss of Advertising Revenue they are going to experience for no one tuning into Monday nights since this show is over with, obviously for the rest of this season, and if he continues to back-hand CBS/Warner through the media outlets he has done so far, he is done. CBS/Warner, should begin the process of 'breach of contract' re: Sheen, and demanding that he pay them back the loss of revenue for the show they had to cancel due to his ERRATIC/ADDICT behavior.

I am not going to say that I am not going to watch this soon-to-be completely derailed train wreck's interview, because if Vegas were taking bets on what kind of interview this is going to be, it is going to be Charlie doing what he has been doing these past two weeks, being in FULL-BLOWN ADDICTION MODE and unhinging his mouth for CRAP to fall out!

Should be interesting!!!!

SEE ya Tuesday Turkeys!!!

He that TV show for 8 years high as **** on cocaine and no one noticed. I am more than sure he can do a TV show and appear to be calm, collected and plain. This interview will be VERY boring, he will be tight lipped and he will act completely clean and sober.
He will speak softly, slowly and calmly directly to the interview. You will see a scripted, charming and polite Charlie Sheen. High on crack, booze and viagra yet seeming to be sober as your postman. He has had this drug abuse problem for nearly 30 years, he stole a care when he was 16 and is more than capable of fooling authority figures.

If Charlie Sheen can do just ONE thing it is fool someone into believing he is polite. Charming Crack Head Charlie Sheen.

Charlie needs you to be fooled by him. Keep an eye on his CRACK face, notice the make-up covering the discolored crack face.

Charlie Sheen will be playing his greatest role ever, he has managed to be on the "List of Doomed Careers". I can already see the do***entary depiction of this very junction of his life.


BUT THERE'S ALWAYS HOPE!!!! HERE'S HOPING AND PRAYING FOR YOU CHARLIE.

I hope he'll be so high that he will mention how he accidentally killed a porn star, and how his dad helped him to cover up.
