Skip to comments.Charlie Sheen Enters Rehab, Two and a Half Men Shut Down
Posted on 01/28/2011 9:37:39 PM PST by traumer
Charlie Sheen is saying, "Yes, yes, yes," to rehab.
His rep just released a statement that the embattled sitcom star "has voluntarily entered an undisclosed rehabilitation center today.
"He is most grateful to all who have expressed their concern," the statement said. "Mr. Sheen asks that his privacy be respected at this time and that no additional information will be provided."
But what about Two and a Half Men? Earlier today, Sheen's rep said the actor would return to work next Tuesday
RELATED: Source: Charlie Sheen doesn't think he has a problem
A statement issued by CBS Entertainment, Warner Bros. Television and executive producer Chuck Lorre says that the hit show has been placed on production hiatus.
"We are profoundly concerned for his health and well-being, and support his decision," the statement said.
Sheen was rushed to a hospital yesterday morning from his L.A.-area home because, he told friends and family, he was suffering severe abdominal pain, possibly due to a hernia from laughing so hard while watching television.
However, a source has told us that Sheen had been on a long partying bender that included a bevy of porn stars.
"He says things like, 'Men like me don't die,'" the source said yesterday, adding that the actor does not think he has a problem. "Give him some free time and he's off and running."
Let's hope any free time he has now will be spent on his recovery.
sorry - I don’t know what happened it’s posted twice....
No problem, I just go buy a couple of comedies for the weekend.
Am I supposed to care? I give more of a s(((( that some obscure guitar player is making his rounds in US coffee shops than anyone named Sheen is acting like a, well.. Sheen..
Are you sure? Are you sure?
Are you sure? Are you sure?
HA very funny....
Happens to me too. I tried hitting the Post button twice but it didn’t work, so I had to manually go back and post again this time.
It’s another Friday. Yawn.
I don’t watch his programs but whatever demons are on him now will kill him until he understands who he was born to be.
until = unless (injecting my own life there, oops)
But he was born to be EXACTLY what he is !
That’s why he is successful..... and probably never bored ;o)
I disagree, he is successful because of his father. He is dying because he doesn’t know GOD. Demons have filled that void.
By “rehab center”, he means a motel room with a closet full of hookers.
Actually, these threads are set up as a sort of trap for losers who bitch about celebrities whose lives they secretly covet.
Now that we've snared you we will point at you and laugh.
Oops! I thought I was scheduled to torment the idiots today. I’m really sorry.
I’ll hand you over to the official idiot tormentor. I sincerely hope that enjoy the rest of your tormentation experiance. Please remember our company the next time you decide to be an idiot and you require tormenting service.
From what I heard this guy has a tolerance to drugs like a bull.
I don’t know how you would get Charlie back to the set soon and maintain treatment. Once Belushi did so by hiring a watchdog on himself 24-7; but once he was gone Belushi slipped.
I guess if he goes to work he will need that watchdog and then when done he needs to stay at a treatment facility for as long as it takes.
That was one tormented [and tormenting] post, dude....;D
Nature takes care of people like him.
Having said that, I hope he gets cleaned up but I’m not betting any money on it.
He’s no Robert Downey Jr.
The man has lots of money and somewhere along the line he got addicted to sex, then all the drugs associated with that life were introduced.
You would have thought he would get past that when he married or turned 30.
I always liked Mr. Sheen. I hadn't watched his show. But my brother convinced me. I started watching the old shows on satellite. They are very funny.
Friday night I watched the funniest yet episode. His brother Allan gets a dummy and takes up ventriloquism. Those dummies creap me out anyway.
Half the city was kept awake by his 36 hour party with cocaine and porn stars. His neighbors saw the porn/hookers or whatever helping him into the ambulance....
for Sheen “rehab” is where he goes to rest between 36-hour cocaine and hooker parties
you would be surprised.. but meh.. not worth it.. keep fronting for your little Charlie. ha ha..
BTW, the “obscure guitar player’ who I was referencing to see tonight was one of the original Agnostic Front creators so like I said, who gives a s(((( about a Sheen.
What a Pussy.
Ah. I see Mr Sheen has chosen the "Six-Step Fast Track Rehab" for people on the go. Excellent choice. Only for the most discriminating partyers.
Hearts of gold I'm tellin ya...Hearts of gold....
Liberals never grow up so “turning 30” makes no difference, really...:)
According to Downey, having a kid snapped him out of his serial stupidity.
I suggest then that you NEVER watch this movie.
how many innocents have been murdered and how many familes have been destroyed so Charlie Sheen and his like can get their cocaine?.. if he had any balls he would put a bullet through his head.. he’s a piece of garbage
Apparently you have never known an addict. You are a class act.
Great...now I gotta clean up coffee I spewed all over the couch.
>> how many innocents have been murdered and how many familes have been destroyed so Charlie Sheen and his like can get their cocaine?
>> Apparently you have never known an addict.
I have and that’s no excuse for the destruction of innocence Lib-Lickers 2’s referring to.
He was born with them but from hanging out with hookers and porn stars for the past 20 years, they are time bombs. Likely to pop some day.
I gather Sheen’s big problem is that he managed to give himself a sex hernia. This happens with fair frequency in combination with cocaine or ecstasy.
In his situation, divorced three times, four kids, a heck of a lot of alimony, so his future earnings are limited. He has probably reached the conclusion that he will never be in a stable, happy marriage. So he probably sees hedonism as a serious option, especially with those who also don’t want to get married.
So he’s on the downhill side of life. With that lifestyle, he is not looking at an extended retirement, so, why not?
He can't be accused of uplifting American culture, but he had talent. What a waste.
True, talented but he got bit by the drug bug which IMO is what is happening to most all in prison or on the streets.
His family was lucky on that one.
If Charlie was a poor, black man, they would have thrown his ass in jail and threw away the key a long time ago.
Sheen buys suitcase loads of the stuff to party with his friends week after week year after year while thousands of police and innocent people are slaughtered by the cartels and you use the addict excuse?
he’s funding the murders and he doesn’t give a damn
I hope he is able to clean himself up and conquer his demons. Along with everything else he needs to do in this regard, he needs to quit his show - the character he plays is too close to the person he has become in real life. It’s almost as though that role is an enabler for him.
Sheen isn’t buying drugs so he can fund murderers. Sheen is buying drugs because he is hooked on drugs. I am not making excuses for Sheen although I do not wish that he “put a bullet in his head” either.
Would you want every drug addict and alcoholic to “put a bullet in their head”?
Check out two Downey quotes:
I have a really interesting political point of view, and it’s not always something I say too loud at dinner tables here, but you can’t go from a $2,000-a-night suite at La Mirage to a penitentiary and really understand it and come out a liberal. You can’t. I wouldn’t wish that experience on anyone else, but it was very, very, very educational for me and has informed my proclivities and politics every since. [Downey in [i]The New York Times[/i] in 2008, on why some of his political opinions now lean more conservative than they used to]
Tofu is the root of all evil, and there’s only one thing that can change a man’s mind, and that’s a modified Uzi with an extra-long clip.
I knew there was a good reason I’ve always liked the guy.
Interesting. He appears to be much more intelligent and complicated than the average actor.
Carlitos, you’ve been in and out of rehabs over the last twenty years, two or three times the last couple of years, one as a condition of pleading out of your domestic-violence thing with Brooke Mueller. You just might have a problem.
Amen. I completely agree.
