Charlie Sheen

Threatens 'Anger' Producers

Fire Selma Blair ... Or I'll Quit

Charlie Sheen
has told "Anger Management" producers -- FIRE SELMA BLAIR ASAP OR ELSE HE'S QUITTING THE SHOW ... TMZ has learned.

We broke the story -- Charlie has been on a mission to get Selma 86'd from the show because he believes she's been complaining about him behind his back ... trashing his work ethic.

Now, sources tell TMZ ... Charlie returned to work Monday and told producers he wants the termination process started TODAY ... or else he'll walk.

It's a big threat from Charlie -- who's set to make between $75 and $200 MILLION if he completes the 100 episode order for "Anger Management" ... depending on how it does in syndication. We're told Charlie's completed roughly half of the 100 episode order. 

We're told Charlie understands that there can be complications with firing someone from a TV show ... but he wants producers to begin drawing up an exit strategy for Blair by the end of the day.

Sources connected to the production tell us ... Selma was not on set yesterday, though it's unclear if she was scheduled to work.

This morning, Blair was spotted out on a walk with her kid -- and when asked about her potential termination from "Anger" she just shook her head and replied, "I don't know anything."

We're told FX network execs are currently in talks about how to handle the situation ... but it's unclear if Blair's fate has been decided.

He is just not used to being around women who are not porn stars and can think for themselves.

I have the solution... wait until Lindsay is out of rehab to fire Selma, and then hire Lindsay, she will never criticize his work ethic!

Selma Blair has actual talent and a legitimate film career. She doesn't need Charlie Sheen, who is nothing more than a joke these days.

Oh also, if he hires Lindsay they can change the name to "Rehab Management" and it could be like John Cleese and Fawlty Towers :D

Oh grow up you freak. You're pissed off this week because a porn queen publicized your attempt to get in her pants and you're on a downward spiral again. Whenever you wear those black glasses it's obvious you've been on a bender. Now WHO in Hollywood will EVER hire your ass again after this? Not once, but twice you pull the same crap, acting like YOU are the boss. You're not, you're just an overpaid dirty old man who does the same character on every show.

In the credits of Anger Management it says that it's a Sheen/Estevez production. Who's he talking to, himself and his family?
