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 seems like the male version of Amanda Bynes, just running around being shocking and inexplicable. Is he really crying out for help? How is he going to break a multi-million dollar contract and risk being sued for all the money he is costing people by quitting? He is not just threatening her job but the jobs of the whole show.


He acts like a tyrant. What is he so mad about, that she is right? He shows up late, holds everyone up, costs production money, and no one is allowed to mention it? There comes a time when you have to put your foot down and say enough is enough with bullies and out of control people.


Why is he so prized as a star? Is it because he is the epitome of sleaze? Is this like a brain washing operation where they need him to convince people that this is the prototype of the new American man? I feel like this is Germany prior to WW II with the culture being infused with raunchiness in order to corrupt the morals of the Germans enough to introduce the Third Reich.


I think he just shoots his mouth off. If he had to put his money where his mouth is, he would probably want to eat his words.

Let me try to get this right. Charlie shoots off mouth and gets fired from 2 1/2 men. Replaced by Ashton. Show doesn't fail as Charlie would have hoped. Ashton begins dating Mila. Charlie wants to hire Mila. Did I get it right ?

Love you Selma but his work ethic can't be that bad. Every time I snort an 8 ball before work I can't accomplish s***.

You would think Charlie Sheen had a tougher skin, considering his actions in life. Did the lil pornster thinking of you as a father type send you over the edge reality in to a bottomless pit of engorged, rapidly running ego? Don't wallow in there too long, less you drown in a river of harsh self-reflection and insecurity.

WTF?    

Grow up Charlie I think those two boys of yours are more mature then you and could have handled it better.

I am a fan of Charlie and I say let anger management crash and burn just to teach him a lesson, his egos cashing checks his body can't cash. Time to be a man and stop behaving like a b*tch, I want the old Charlie back you know the nice one who could act that we had in the 80s.

ratings have dropped anyway. they need to just cancel the show. Charlie doesn't deserve a job he doesn't deserve the money he makes, he obviously doesn't have the interest of audiences anymore. these networks make no sense to me. Lets overpay a jerk off that causes problems for himself and everyone else that audiences don't care for all that much. what a great idea!!! Selma is waaaaaay to good for a sitcom with CS. She deserves better.

Charlie needs to put on his big boy panties and grow up. Not everyone likes you. You've made poor choices in your life. You were also able to become a hero of sort and a laughingstock by "winning". Why can't some celebrities learn to fight in private instead of always willingly dragging the media and the public into it. If she did leak those messages then that sucks but it's not the end of the world.

The best thing for the producers would be to fire Sheen. He's the loose cannon.
