The "Two and a Half Men" season premiere DESTROYED "Dancing with the Stars" in the ratings -- and the Charlie Sheen hype machine ... not Ashton Kutcher ... is to thank for it.

And, Harvey thinks Chaz Bono is "the heat" on "DWTS" -- and Chaz proved it by unveiling his TOPLESS man body for all to see. Plus, West Hollywood bans fur sales -- so we go live to ritzy Rodeo Drive .... where an uninformed fur-lover states her case.

I don't care to wear fur but I'm totally against this ban because I don't feel the government should be telling us what we can and can't wear. When you open that door so much more can go wrong. How about the government learn to do their job and we'll do ours... dressing ourselves.

Ugh... their human rights record are crappy. Shudder to think how they treat animals. Ever seen a Russian circus with a bear? Horrible.

I think the U.S. should monitor fur imports more closely. Make sure they were harvested ethically. If people want them.

No Fur! It feels so much better on the animal. Just pet it.

Fur was a necessity a century ago for people to keep warm. There are enough manmade products that look nice for fashion sake, which is why people wear it. I do own leather purses and shoes, so I need to think more about my purchases, too.

I believe there are other ways of killing the animals. Bullet to the head's quick and painless.

I remember watching a video about a coat that JLo wore. They showed the Foxes being bludgeoned and skined. Their reasoning was that once the animal dies, it releases a chemical into the fur that makes it a lower quality.

Harvey got his meat/fur/leather and now he has a change of heart after years of "enjoying" this and now he wants to regulate everyone now that he's an old man.....thanks

When I was in public accounting, one of my clients owned a mink farm. Anyone who does not understand how terrible these poor animals are treated and rasied needs to vist one of these farms. It is absolutely eye-opening. I promise they would never ever wear fur again. Unless you are totally the most cold hearted person around.
