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.

Charlie Sheen treats women like they are nothing more than a toy. Discard when done. Pathetic little drug addict man!!! What's more pathetic is the management around him that would follow through with his wish. Especially if what she is complaining about is true!!!!!

Not cool, Charlie. Everybody needs their job. Request a meeting with her and have your boss serve as Ombudsman. Then you can approach her directly. Talk to her!

Charlie:
Grow a pair! We have all had to work with people that we might not be crazy about. Grow up and laugh all the way to the bank.

So if he quits does he get paid? If not, let him quit. Keep what's in the can, and save yourself some money.

He is trying to push his weight around. He takes her as just another dumb airhead woman with no life goals other than to bow down and kiss his feet. She might be the end of the line on his warlock with tiger blood streak.


She might have connections that he never imagined, people he wouldn't want to anger if he knew what was good for him.


She seems like a cool lady. He is going to pull a Matt Lauer at any rate and make the fans hate him for picking on an innocent women just to get his own ego stroked. I think he is just a reckless fool who is out of control and is going to reap the fruits of his undisciplined life very shortly.

No wonder this show is a complete mess. Look at all the people involved. Charlie Sheen and Brett Butler are drug abusers, Selma Blair is anorexic, their dialogue coach Brian Peck is on the sex offender's database. They have druggies and child molesters on set. How can this show succeed?

HEY TMZ....You've been PUNK'D by Charlie Sheen.

Anger Management is now showing on FOX Monday Nights and getting crap ratings.
Nothing boosts ratings like Bad Charlie Sheen fueled by drugs and revenge.
This is PUBLICITY STUNT to boost his sagging ratings and his sagging ego.
