Members of the crew tell TMZ .... they were told "Men" creator Chuck Lorre spearheaded the move, got Warner Bros. on board and as a result more than 100 people will be getting their paychecks.

Members of the crew estimate they will collectively get around $2 million for the 4 weeks of work.

One crew member tells us he and his colleagues are "ecstatic."

They should not get punished because Charlie's such a p_ick! This guy's a real loon! I hope they find someone to fill his spot to show him that "one monkey don't stop a show!" My Mama used to always say that you can show 'em better than you can tell 'em!

WHO CARES?!    

RADAR INTERVIEW- SCARY!!

Scary stuff...he laugh's when he see's himself answer question about girls possibly dying while being with him.
When asked what he wants his fans to know..."Trust me, follow me to the promise land."

We have shifted from denial into "cultism".

Again, this is better than any episode of "Intervention".

Rosenfield had to go. Sheen has gone rogue - he is not playing by the 'mundane, everyday' structure/rules anymore. The gloves are so off, and people who don't understand get scared and scream CALAMITY at him.

There was no way for Rosenfield to stay aboard as publicist when Sheen intends to gather as much lemming attention as possible from this incident, for a higher purpose, which means he needs these explosive stories to gather that media momentum. You see, haters NEED to perceive Rosenfield's exit as it is presented to you, by TMZ.

In reality, Rosenfield may have even known that Charlie was going to lash out at him for "quitting" on TMZ....all for lemmings like sad sad to eat up and judge.

A rogue rock star's publicist's reputation will only suffer when the star has taken over full control, as Sheen has. No doubt Rosenfield saw the writing on the wall quickly and they spoke...

All this started with Sheen's corporate bosses attempt to reach into his personal life, based upon a one-day visit to the hospital which interfered with production. Ultimately risking televisions #1 rated sitcom on a bluff of the shows absolutely irreplaceable star.

They tried to bully the wrong cat, he does have tiger blood! He called the bluff and is teaching them how to play the game!!!

Artists are your beacons of truth and courage, and Sheen is living up to that in a great many ways. I do hope for his continued health and success.

Open your eyes and minds, haters.

Details?    

Team Lorre, he is quiet and pays the crew.

Charlie is mean, blames everyone but himself, and caused the crew to be unemployed.

You can rant all you want Sheen, but those are the facts.

Also, I beleive the people of AA do except you for who you are. You just don't like the reality of their mirror. You are accustomed to payed hookers telling you what you want to hear.

I think the person that is taking money from your 5 kids would be YOU. All that drug money. All the paid women. Flying jets to pick up party guests so you can see yourself as cool. That would be you.

You know the people who really love you were there before all your money and fame. These people you pay to be near you while you suffer from delusions of grandeur. They are oppurtinistic enablers.

Wake Up Charlie. You are treating people very badly and it is not humerous anymore. It's sad.

Also, You used to be kinda cool. Now you appear to be an egomanical jerk. People who run around talking about how great they think they are, are OBNOXIOUS!

P.S. Totally Uncool to call a man out as being a member of an anonymous group. You obviously do not get AA as you can not even get that it is Anonmous!

Carlos, you are hating the very people who wanted to help you. The people who stood up to you because they cared more about you than pimping your drugged up *ss out for all it's worth. The people who GAVE YOU MILLIONS per episode.

I would say Charlie is losing because he has become obsessed with Mr. Lorre, Warner Brothers, and CBS. And he has really bad diarrhea of the mouth.

Get help dude.

Glad They are Paying the Crew. Ths Other Actors will probably also get payed, Except.. Good Time Charlie. It was C.S. fault 150 Percent that the show will not go on. It was His Rants and Raves.. Those are the Consequences...One thing. Charlie is Mentally Ill and Needs help. The drugs and Booze just added to it. Clean, The Poor guy needs Mental help. ASAP.

Congrats to Warner Bros. & Chuck Lorre for putting people first.
The crew's four weeks payroll roughly equals one episode payday for 'deluded Charlie'; believe me when I say that Lorre & Warner Bros. have made the best investment & move of the year.
Now, just do the show without Sheen (Sorry, Charlie!). How about an episode with Berta, Alan, Mom & Nephew sitting around the kitchen table "envisioning Charlie - missing with his crazy
former neighbor/now 'not-married' to a mannequin/and wondering what he must have gotten himself into. The mantages of the individual 'daydreams' is comedic manna from heaven & will allow the show to go forward with taste & humor but not belabor the self-inflicted career suicide by the highest overpaid actor in situation comedy history. Maybe then it will only be his career suicided, not him.
