Last year, Charlie Sheen went on a massive coke and porn star/hooker bender that ended with him being fired from Two and a Half Men and going on insane rants on the Internet. What was great about this, is it allowed me to systemically remove friends and family from my life who genuinely believed Charlie was “winning” and knew what he was doing. They were right up there with anyone trying to talk me into a pyramid scheme. Anyway, while promoting his new show Anger Management because he’s reduced to starring in a show based on an eight-year-old Adam Sandler movie, Charlie has admitted he was out of his goddamn mind the entire time, and wow, this was a whole lot of words to basically say I love being right. People reports:
“I’m not crazy any more. That was an episode,” Sheen says, laughing, as he spoke with reporters at Sunday night’s Fox Network Television Critics Association party in Pasadena, Calif.
“I think I’m a different person than I was yesterday. Everything is a lot more mellow and focused and much more rooted in reality.”
… Of late, Sheen says instead of sounding off on Twitter, “I’ve been spending a lot of time with the kids, a lot of time with the family and I’m getting back into work mode,” adding that he is goddess-free these days. “I’m a single guy hanging out with my children.”
So basically Charlie has gone from the extreme high of banging hookers and snorting briefcases full of blow to the extreme low of forlornly sitting around the house with his kids like Ward Cleaver. Phew. For a minute there I thought there’d be all kinds of red flags here, but everything looks in order to me. Who wants ice cream?
