Charlie Sheen is using his warlock powers for good, not evil -- today he toured the destruction left behind by the tornadoes in Alabama and says he's planning an event to raise money for the victims.

Sheen posed today for a few pics with police officers and National Guard soldiers and told the locals he wants to bring "money, hope, faith and healing" to the area.

Alabama should be winning in no time.

You are right it is pointless and that is why I don't get into it with you anymore because I have come to realize that my statements or anyone elses statements regarding anything negative about charlie to you are pointless and in vain, however, now and then we are able to comment on each others post and even now and then I do see where you do have a point and I actually agree with you on some things and some of those points believe it or not have absolutely nothing to do with charlie sheen

***********************

No, you misunderstood. Not STATEMENTS. QUESTIONS are pointless, as I usually know the answer, jusst like I'm sure you know my answers to yours;)

I draw conclusions about his wives based on what I SEE and READ about them.

I do the same....so I don't see the difference, except that we view things differently. I draw my conclusions on charlie mostly on what I HEAR come out of his own mouth and his ACTIONS, not on what I read or hear from other people. I never really gave Denise any credibility years ago but now his actions and words give her past accusations a lot of credibility. I don't see where she had any motivation to lie in her divorce do***ents. I'm sure you'll come up with a conclusion of your own as to why she would lie...

You're casting pearls before swine, m'dear. That one will not concede that you might have any points if they're negative regarding her idol.

I would like to believe that he's doing this from an altruistic standpoint, but past behavior, as you've pointed out, is predictive of future behavior. As I've said, if I'm wrong, I'll gladly apologize.

It remains to be seen, however, whether he puts himself on the line here. Most likely, it will be more exhortations for his followers to give - without risking his bottom line to any appreciable extent. I still don't think that's WINNING.

ksis,

it was a recent thread, I will have to look for it but I will tell you this, my comments were based on my own experience as a divorced mom (years ago) with a child and the fact that although there were times I did not like my ex and vice versa and maybe he was dating someone or doing something I did not like, I knew how important he was to my child and I cared more about that and I put my own feelings aside because it wasn't about ME, it was about my child and his feelings and his love for his dad and I firmly believe that Denise Richards has done this....brooke on the other hand, not so much. I think she has been very selfish when it comes to her kids but I also think charlie has been as well but I also think Denise has had cause for concern recently and that is why she pulled back but I won't be the least bit surprised to see charlie with her girls in the future because as I've said before, I don't think charlie is evil, I think he is messed up and needs to step back and shut up with all this wierd crap he's been spewing and at least give the perception that he has his kids best interest at heart and you don't do that by saying some of the things he has been saying and doing

I don't know why she would and I don't know what happened between them, but I DO know that she went with him to NY last year and partied with him and Capri ANderson in Plaza. I do know she defended him after he trashed the hotel room on live television. I simply don't trust people who change their attitudes like that towards those that supposedly abused them.

Reba and Blake Shelton announced help a few days after it happened. And I'm pretty sure those Officers and National Guard have more important things to do instead of standing around taking pics with "Loser". I agree, money is money and doesn't matter where it comes from just as long as there is help, but why does anyone need to make a "special event"... just pass on some of that money you made from the last concert/show you had.

God can and often does use imperfect people to accomplish his purposes.
an example
( The prostitute who played a key role in the conquest of Jericho (Josh chaps. 2-6). Occupying a house upon the city wall (Josh 2:15), Rahab gave lodging to the two ..).

Charlie Sheen has been bitter, hateful etc... but we all sin and fall short of the glory of God.
I do not like for people to call evil good-(and Charlie has been venomous)
Everyone deserves the chance to start over.
It is my hope that Charlie Sheen really does change, and that he does not allow himself to be consumed by hate. (calling his boss a ***** A-hole while begging for his job back, calling his children's mothers whores and sluts really shows how consuming his hatred was)
Hopefully Sheen has put a period and moved on.

I am praying that Charlie becomes a better man, and makes a name for himself for good rather than for attacking his former employers and ex wives.

A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.

Pray with me for him.

Matthew 19:26 “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

I do not remember her exact words after he trashed the room but I don't think I would categorize them as "defending" him and I can understand why you wouldn't trust people who "appear" to be changing their attitudes towards someone they claimed abused them and this is EXACTLY why I do not like brooke. I just don't think it applies to Denise. Denise did have dinner with charlie and capri but she also said, she did not realize capri was a hooker and maybe at that point if Denise did indeed defend him as you put it, it was just about wanting to still try and support him at that point. You can't deny that she was making an effort though with him and the girls...well you can deny it but you shouldn't, lol

*********************

If you find it, then please repost it here. I am getting lost in all those threads today as I am doing some other things on the net at the same time.

As for Denise...I don't see that much of a difference between her and Brooke. I mean, I'm sure she IS a better mother, because she is not a drug addict, but just like I didn't trust Brooke when she whined to the judge to give her the TRO because Charlie supposedly threatened her (and again we had only her words on the paper, no witnesses), I also don't trust Denise when she says she is so damn afraid to let Charlie spend time with the girls. She wouldn't even allow him to see one of them on her birthday. Come on.
I know that Charlie probably could have been a better father, but unlike Brooke, he has been clean and sober ever since he decided to give up drugs. He is changing his life and focus and Denise still seems to be leaning towards supporting Brooke, and she is surprised that Charlie is bitter and expresses that bitterness on stage???
I think both women are selfish and they are not doing the kids any good.

I remember seeing an interview on tv (I think I saw it on YT) soon after the Plaza thing, and I would call it defending. Maybe I'll try to look for it later.
And you honestly believe that she didn't realize Capri was a hooker?? A strange woman at a dinner table. Hmmmm...who could that be? LOL
I simply don't see all that effort on her part during the time when the effort SHOULD be made, namely NOW, when he is finally clean and sober.

well, at the very least both women have been through a lot with charlie and he has to take ownership with that. I agree that he is clean now and if he can keep it together he should be able to be with his kids. I guess where you think Denise should not be surprised at charlie's bitterness on stage, I will say, then we shouldn't be surprised at Denise's bitterness for him showing his bitterness on stage???
My point about all the crap on stage has always been that judges don't like that and someone needs to let charlie know that it will not help him in the future as far as custody if he continues. I know you like that he is honest and out there and tells it like it is but there are just certain instances (like for the sake of your kids) when you need to keep certain things to yourself.

KSIS: I simply don't see all that effort on her part during the time when the effort SHOULD be made, namely NOW, when he is finally clean and sober.


Well, that is your view but apparently it is not Denise's. I mean come on a couple weeks ago he was trashing her, which ironically when she was on a show that I saw and talked about it, she did not seem very upset about. I think she is just used to it and almost expects it from charlie. I also have to point out to you that NOW would be impossible because he has been on tour and besides, I think he has to win some trust back. He has been away and maybe once he gets home and shows some consistency, he'll see the girls. Parents need to be consistent with kids, at least Denise can explain to the girls that charlie has a job that means he has to travel

Oh geez where do I start......

As I said yesterday, I'm reserving final conclusions based on (1) what his idea of help is and (2) how AL feels about it - not necessarily in that order of importance. We won't know either for awhile yet.

I've lived through numerous disasters, including hurricanes Carla, Katrina, and Rita. You may not remember or know about Carla - that was 1962 - Carla was a Cat 5 with a Cat 4 landfall. I was living near the Gulf Coast waterfront at that time and ours was the only structure left standing on the block. Kinda leaves an impression on a person.

I've been both the recipient of and a participant in relief aid during/following natural disasters. My experience has been that not all so-called help is welcome or actually very helpful. Sometimes help becomes an impediment to others who are trying to get things done, such as tying up the time of key service personnel for photo ops. Celebrities are often resented for these sorts of "help".

On the other hand, when a celebrity is high profile like Charlie is at the moment, it may be worth the disadvantages to get the public attention back on the issues at hand in a local area. The public has a short attention span. Right now, we have other major news stories taking up attention and Charlie's media attention is waning as well. It could be a win/win for both Charlie and Alabama for him to be engaged in a fund raising effort.

He would be well advised to also contribute his own money to the cause not just raise other people's money. Matching funds would be generous. He would also be well advised to follow through on every promise - or risk the tide of public opinion turning on him. Last but not least, he needs to hire a PR firm or some similar entity to do the paperwork on his charity work, especially if he plans to continue in this vein. He needs not to handle the money himself.

Most adults that I know are not naive about celebrities who do charity work, both publicly and privately. We realize that there are many reasons why they do this work, including a genuine desire to help or to give back or to pay forward. It also keeps them relevant, cleans up their public image, garners them political influence, launders their money, and so on.

Mostly what it doesn't do is tell us a whole lot about what sort of human being they are. Its akin to politicians shaking hands and kissing babies. Its just the way business is done these days.
