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.

There's a group of people that come on these sites for the sheer purpose of disruption, especially to disrupt any negative comments about the Kartrashians. They invaded Radar (and ultimately failed), and now they've come here. "Hooahjuice" is one, as is Queen Petra. There are more. They try to make every story about the Kartrashians, if possible. They all operate in a little different way. They will be relatively new members of TMZ.

At one time, Charlie Sheen was a popular, lovable, entertaining individual on TV. Now, he has become a boring, conceited know it all, self obsorbed individual who is learning he is no longer relevant except to those who depend upon his wallet. Now, he is singing his familiar song, "I'll QUIT!!! Let's HOPE he KEEPS his PROMISE!!!

Bah... why can't Charlie just grow up, grit his teeth, and power through the remaining episodes. I like Selma. I don't believe she deserves this treatment.
.
Considering Charlie's track record, I'm a little suspicious as to why all of a sudden he can't stand his coworker. Maybe he should put down the crack pipe and care about something besides himself.

Charlie Sheen was and still is an arrogant, self-important putz. Hey moron - did you sign a contract? If you did, they should hold you to it and, if you walk, they should sue you for everything you have.

Charlie, check into Betty Ford. A bed has opened up there and since you already paid for it take advantage.

Signing up Charlie Sheen to stay focused for 200 episodes was ambitious to start off with, given his tendency for erratic behavior. The producers should have had a contingency plan for this. Me, I'd just fire his ass... enough with the male diva crap!!

Charlie is the star, not her. She should have just been happy that she landed a sit com role. There are thousands of actors who don't get that far.
