Charlie Sheen made his final appearance on his web show 'Sheen's Korner'. As Lisa de Moraes reported:
It was billed as a fan chat with Charlie Sheen and the series finale of his web show, "Sheen's Korner." But fired "Two and a Half Men" star Charlie Sheen took exactly zero questions from fans Tuesday night.
Instead, he talked for eight minutes straight -- some of it was comprehensible. Sheen did not address comments he'd made earlier in the day in which he called his "Men" co-star Jon Cryer a "a turncoat, a traitor, a troll." Nor did he address the addition of Rob Lowe's name to the Charlie Sheen Replacement Rumor List. Among the things we learned:
* Sheen feels, "Oh how they once begged to attend to attend my perfect banquet in the nude, now they just beg for the keys to my gold. Here is my unwanted guest list. The names slightly altered to prevent their stench from polluting my magic daiquiri, or even worse, stealing my favorite pony. A pony named Steve, his orange mane painted blue, blue like the evening sky, as he gallops into the basement to acquire the ancient flatware and a rotting cheeseboard covered in the mold of their moral dysentery."
'Two and a Half Men' co-star Holland Taylor defended Charlie Sheen in an email sent to AP. As Michael Cidoni reported:
"Two and a Half Men" star Holland Taylor defended the actor she has worked with since the show began in 2003.
"Charlie was cordial and polite with all of his cast mates and crew, sometimes even courtly - and always witty," Taylor said Tuesday in an e-mail to The Associated Press. "We watched movies at his house occasionally - warm evenings with interesting, spirited conversation. This is the guy I know.
"In this very sad and complicated time, I really have no comment," she continued, "beyond valuing my own history with Charlie, and my abiding affection for him."
Since Charlie Sheen's first interview rant many 'experts' have sought to explain the actor's bizarre behavoir. As Lisa de Moraes reported:
Like the sight of relief workers pouring into devastated areas, nothing so heartens reporters chronicling the gut-wrenching story of a Hollywood celebrity crackup as the sight of e-mails streaming in to offer unsolicited assistance in the form of easy quotes from academics, lawyers, and other aspiring talking heads.
Sadly, we were overlooked by University of Southern California law professor Jack Lerner, who volunteered to Variety the observation that Warner Bros. Television's 11-page letter, explaining in glorious detail why it was giving Sheen the old heave-ho, "puts to rest the argument that this dispute was ever about anything other than Sheen's addiction, like creative differences or antagonism between Sheen and ['Men' co-creator/exec producer] Chuck Lorre."
In the letter, Warner Bros. cited an "incapacity" clause in Sheen's contract, a clause about "moral turpitude" and recent interviews in which Sheen vowed not to work with Lorre, by way of explaining why it was giving Sheen the hook.
