Hollywood is overpaid. They are bottom feeders calling themselves artists. Look at their lives. And their politics.

What about the grandkids? Are you willing to give everybody a pass on their safety? This guy is crazy and violent. And only his Dad can intervene.

Absolutely not. Child Services should remove the children to safety immediately - but they won't because Charlie would have 100 lawyers all over them in a heartbeat.

That's why I said only his father can intervene. Or the childrens mother. Richards filed in court to keep him away from their daughters.

I suppose the reason why a lot of people might not be sympathetic with a rich person going off the rails like this is that there are those of us who are lesser mortals who have to worry about money and paying bills and other stuff that people living in the Hollywood bubble don’t have to worry about.
Personally, I can kind of understand junkies in ghettos who shoot up heroin because they grew up in a life of poverty crime, sexual abuse etc and use drugs as a means of escape from their crappy lives, but what is the excuse of a man who has grown up with privileges and riches from sinking so far into the gutter?

I agree but while they are all being overpaid the people who we actually tune in for may as well get a proportional cut.

I think that Charlie Sheen just wants off of the wheel/ treadmill, and the only way out is to get fired. His 2 mil per episode goes to wives, children, govt taxes both fed and state and of course job related expenses. Drugs keep him going at this point but his brain is already affected and his body will not hold up forever under this chemical abuse. He is clearly self destructing and his current antics can only end in disaster or tragedy for himself. Sheen is spiritually adrift. He needs help and I hope he can get it from the right sources and be saved from himself.

I don’t have TV and haven’t seen a movie in a long time. My only exception is the Jesse Stone series and some westerns on DVD.

This is a stunt for ratings, plain and simple. I actually talked to many people that watched his show for the first time after this all started. People that don’t mind or even like his antics will love the show. He plays “himself” so this is like free advertising.

Lots of sick people encouraging him will make millions/billions? while he and those that actually care about him will suffer once the high wears off.

The guy already consumes as much crack and fake women as his body can physically handle. When “chemical happiness” (including empty sex) eclipses any real happiness in your life, you always need more to stay happy. Charlie is pretty close to the ceiling.

I completely agree with your analysis. It addresses, however, a point other than what the one to which I objected.

Even when I can have compassion to someone, I have no moral right to ask the same from others. If the poster does not feel compassion to Sheen, who am I to say that he must? It's his choice.

Finding sickness entertaining is another matter altogether. I do find dancing at a hospital bed --- finding Sheen's meltdown entertaining -- to be akin to dancing on a grave. No, there is nothing irrational about dancing on graves either, but Jews and Christians don't do that; it's against Judeo-Christian values.

So, I expressed a puzzlement about someone being entertained by a meltdown. To that I receive a reply which includes considerations of wealth. I don't buy that and, I suspect, neither do you.

In my book, dancing on a grave of a rich person is as wrong as dancing on a grave of a poor one.

Charlie was really off the rails this morning. What’s scarier to me is the fact that they said they tested him and he was clean. I think he absolutely has a problem that no amount of drug or babe rehab will cure.

You are right. It certainly isn’t the right thing to do, but somehow, it just doesn’t seem as abominable to mock someone for their misfortune when they are the ones who are entirely responsible for it...

Why do the networks owe Charlie anything more than his salary? You sound like a lib claiming big business needs to share it's profits with the workers.

Charlie is well paid considering all they have to deal with and he "deserves" to pay the costs of the delays and revenues he has caused

I haven't seen the videos yet, I'll watch them in a minute. I saw him on tee vee this morning. He was wide eyed and crazy. He said, “I'm on a drug and it's called Charlie Sheen.” He's a crackpot. I expect to hear of his overdose death sometime later this year.

I was referring to his salary in regards to his drug use. Last I checked you have to pay for hookers, booze and cocaine. And it has been reported that he spent $20,000 on cocaine on one night!!!

And if you want to talk about compassion have compassion for all of the people out of work because of this drug addict sicko.

If you read all of my posts I am referring to his drug usage not his income level.

I don't agree with your radical beliefs, you probably think I'm doomed to hell since you believe your specific denomination is the only way to Salvation. WHICH is ammo to anti-Christian humanists.

I don't believe that if you are a Catholic, Lutheran, Baptist, ect.... that you are going to hell, obviously you have a different belief.

My sister belonged to a cult which kicked them out because they didn't go to church three times a week because my brother in law has testicular cancer and is immobile. You know what denomination that was? Baptist. Now are all Baptist Churches bad? Absolutely not, this just happened to be run by a psychotic who actually sent out literature demanding that woman have a certain length of hair, how they are still affiliated with Baptists is beyond me.

Do you think that a cancer ridden person who cannot attend church three times a week because of their illness and is condemned to hell like their preacher said?

Because your rhetoric is identical to that preacher who states that anyone who doesn't believe everything he preaches is going to burn in hell. That is how you are coming off in your post. And it saddens me that there are so many Christians who are quick to try and throw religion into everything. I go to Church, leave me alone with your damnation talk, too bad I can't block posters because ranting from zealots belittles this website.

This was a humorous article to take our minds off of the disasters across the world. Instead you inject your radical beliefs into this story. Hmm, maybe you are that same preacher, wouldn't surprise me...

LOL you are a zealot, go reread the Bible where Jesus talks about "judgment" last I checked you weren't God Almighty!

And who are you to assume what religion or beliefs I have that isn't any of your business. Last I checked I did not have to sign a waver on this website that I must subscribe to TopQuark's religious denomination.

If you want to discuss religion there is a whole area of Free Republic where people argue religion.

As the Admin_Moderator stated this is in the Chit/Chat category.

I for one could careless about your opinion. You are a zealot who thinks everyone should follow your religious beliefs. That is very judgmental and quite frankly turns my stomach because you are demeaning Christians by acting like judge, jury and executioner.

This is my last response to you. You are a cultist, and I don't think that the best de-programmer in the world could fix you.

Arguing with someone who is clearly mentally ill, I sincerely believe those in cults are mentally ill, are not worth arguing with because no matter what I say you are going to preach to me that only YOUR rules will get me to Heaven. Last I checked that was up to Jesus, not you.

73 posts, one religious zealot who believes that they are the only ones who can pass judgment. He is a cultist which is evident in his rants.

Rambling about Karl Marx and Judeo-Christianity and saying I am a Marxist and anti Judeo-Christian because I made a thread regarding Charlie Sheen is the sign of an imbalanced individual. I am not going to reply to their posts anymore because you can't argue with someone that brainwashed.

“Charlie thinks they love him and want him because he’s such a talented desireable man.”

No, he truly thinks the opposite. The insane drug use is to to forget it.

Many rich people turn to drugs because so many of the women, friends and sometimes family that “love” them are only after their trinkets. The richer and more famous, the worse it is. Especially in people born rich that never developed relationships prior to wealth.

The same thing goes for very beautiful women and people using them for sex.

Possessing extreme wealth or beauty often makes it harder to achieve the most important things in life. Things that you will never see in tabloids and MTV shows that promote meaningless possessions and sex 24/7.

You have no idea how much shows like that make. 3 Million a season is nothing compared to what they pull in for a hit show like that.

Sheen wants $3 million PER EPISODE. And according to Forbes Magazine a few months ago, the show brings in $3.1 million an episode.

You clearly don't understand how pathetic your comment sounded. Calling me an idiot merely because I said Charlie should be charged for the time and loss of income for others? Not only was that rude but it shows your lack of character. I rarely have a problem with anyone on FR but you are an asshole. I doubt you really have any connection to any sort of entertainment work, because liars usually brag and pretend to know more than they do.

And for the record, I don't care how much his show makes - others depend on him to be there to work so they can work. I'm not referring to the other cast members only, but to the support staff as well.

Watching that interview was like watching the interview with Charles Manson......both totally bizarre.

Sheen reminds me of a very good friend's brother who developed schizophrenia at about the age of 29. One day the brother showed up at my apartment after he had driven 300 miles from northern Michigan to the Detroit area where I lived claiming he had an appointment the next morning with the French consulate to discuss the funding of a railway system from Detroit to northern Michigan and he needed a place to stay for the night.

It was quite apparent that he had stopped taking his medications, which he was prone to do. To say that was a bizarre evening is an understatement. Fortunately my friend lived across town and he was able to come over and spend the evening too after he got off work.

Look, friend: nobody was preaching here. I've just heard that too many times lately: if someone is "rich," he deserves a difference treatment. And what I said was much smaller that what it has become in this discussion: the man is now quite clearly sick. When he was responsible for his actions, we had the right to judge his actions. But when a person has psychiatric meltdown, it is far from entertaining. No, I don't find it humorous, as you say you do. That's all.

I wish you and your family all the best.

An F18, with Tiger's blood, Adonis DNA, telling people to beg to work for him, to lick his feet, etc., etc. It's jaw dropping arrogance.

Lots of talk about a raise on here. Personally I find him to be a repulsive, deplorable, megalomaniacal ass and wouldn't want him associated with my network in any way. What advertiser is going to want to shell out to be associated with him? Sorry, by the time he stops talking, he'll be a joke - a personification of everything that is disgusting and wrong with Hollywood - and no one will want to be associated with him.

“What’s so entertaining about a man with progressively more severe psychiatric problems? Since when is sickness entertaining? “

I love this because Charlie Sheen is the public face of the Troofer movement. Every time he makes a fool of himself all over again, a leftist loses his wings.

I’m nuking more popcorn as we speak.

You clearly don’t understand the entertainment business. Not surprisingly you’re ignorant about how it works. You have no idea how much shows like that make. 3 Million a season is nothing compared to what they pull in for a hit show like that

1. He's asking for $3million an episode (and a pony)

2. Actors often have an inflated sense on how important they are to the success of the show (Suzanne Somers, David Caruso, Rob Lowe to name but 3)

Some of us got a few breaks and maybe had a little talent and worked hard. Others, like you, are losers who the family is ashamed of. Have a good shift at McDonalds tonight you peice of trash.
