Lorre: Sheen's Fall From Grace is a 'Sprint'

3/1/2011 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Chuck Lorre just posted an existential statement on his website with a vanity card from tonight's episode of "Mike and Molly" -- and if we're reading it correctly, it sounds like "Two and a Half Men" is over and out.

The statement is long and rambling -- it seems he's mocking Charlie's recent ramblings.  Lorre says, "I believe that consciousness creates the illusion of individualism, the false feeling of being separate."  Translation:  Charlie may think he's blazing his own path but he's still on the well-traveled trail of life.

Lorre goes on:  "I further believe that this existential misunderstanding is the prime motivating force for the neurotic compulsion to blot out consciousness."  Translation:  Charlie is living in a dream world.

There are other gems, but Lorre ends by writing, "The Fall from Grace is, in fact, a Sprint from Grace.  Or perhaps more accurately, Screw Grace, I am so outta here!" 

As for writing, "I am so outta here!" could be Lorre talking or it could be what Lorre thinks Charlie is saying. 

The more we think about it, it seems he's referring to Charlie, but either way, what really seems "outta here" is "Two and a Half Men."

I never paid much attention to Chuck Lorre or Two and a Half Men, but this statement makes me kinda love Lorre. It's a very clever way to respond to Charlie's antics.

But I hope Charlie's family is able to convince him to seek help before he permanently ruins his career (if he hasn't already?). He's obviously going through some sort of manic episode.

Wow! These two are acting like kids. Enough with the b/s. Talk to each other and not the whole world. Can you say "Grown Ups".

The Real Victim    

To avoid being found with blood on their hands, the network felt compelled to make a valiant attempt to distance themselves from this self-destructive individual.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it!

Charlie caught in another lie.

In the TMZ interview he said he had talked to Jon Cryer and Angus' mother. On Piers Morgan he said he had not talked to any of his co-stars and was mad that he's heard nothing from them.

Go Team Charlie Sheen!

Vanity Cards - a suitable title.

Again, Sheen hit the nail on the head. For the amount of money that Sheen brings into CBS, the shareholders and the BIG steak holders in the company will bring him back.

AND i hope Sheen pulls in 2mill+ an episode.

Yep...I'm in bankruptcy, so why do i stand for this guy? Because for once, a successful monied individual 'gets it', and is going to bat for people. The man has a good heart, no matter what the idiotic naysayers say.

CBS was damned if they did and damned if they didn't.

CBS was being criticized more and more for profiting from Sheen's public self destruction and for ignoring a moral responsibility to do what they could to intervene with him.

This is the first time Charlie has not been able to skate and is for the first time really feeling the consequences of his own behavior. He doesn't like it obviously.

Chuck Lorre is an egomaniac who thinks he is brilliant and can't stand a person, whom he thinks is below huimself, getting paid to party on his show.

The truth is, he probably ran out of ideas for the show and wants to pin the demise on Sheen.

I think a lot of people see this as a threat to personal freedoms. Even if we don't want to behave like Sheen, we want to know that we woudn't be scrutinized or fired for some misbehaving on our own time.

Am I missing something? CBS didn't cancel the remaining episodes based on Charlie's personal ills? Or so I thought? I thought they shelved the remaining shows AFTER Sheen went on a public rant trashing his bosses?

I am behind people being able to do what they want in their personal time to some extent. But everyone knows, you publicly trash the people holding your paycheck and career in hand, and you are walking a tight rope. The show was on track to resume today until Sheen went on a tirade for all to hear and really said some horrible, pig-headed things. He has no one but himself to blame for the fall-out.

Chuck may have wrote the show but Charlie and John are the stars. Come on CBS don't you have any say so to settle this feud between these two and get our show back on the air. We don't care about this bull **** fighting we just want to see the show. Charlie appoligized to Chuck what does he want?

CHUCK LORRE IS A KNOWN ******* IN THE INDUSTRY! TRUST ME, I'VE WORKED FOR HIM, THE GUY IS A JERK.
HE THINKS BECAUSE HE PRODUCES MANY SUCCESSFUL SHOWS, HE CAN TREAT PEOPLE LIKE ****.
CHARLIE MIGHT BE YOUR TYPICAL BIPOLAR/MANIC/SUBSTANCE ABUSE INDIVIDUAL, BUT HE'S THE REAL DEAL. CHARLIE IS ALWAYS SUPER NICE TO EVERYONE ON SET.

CHUCK IS, A JERK.
CHARLIE WILL NOT TAKE IT ANYMOE. GO CHARLIE!!

Jesus Christ Chuck Lorre is getting exactly what he wants here!! Mike and Molly has become a huge hit now as well along with Men and Big Bang and other shows. Lorre is obviously having trouble keeping creative with all the shows and is using Sheen's behavior as an excuse. If he wasn't he would continue to be silent but he again has to antagonize Charlie with these bull**** vanity cards. Sheen will sue, and win(no morals clause)but in the long run all us fans lose!! ****ing Hollywood!!!
