Earlier this week, Charlie Sheen was brought to the hospital in New York City, after security at his hotel called the police (usatoday.com). It appears that the “Two and a Half Men” star was creating quite a ruckus in his room, due to either intoxication or an allergic reaction to medication. Hmmm…which do you believe? I’m pretty sure that allergic reactions don’t usually result in psychiatric evaluations.
The actor is no stranger to legal issues. He has been in and out of rehab over the years for drug and alcohol abuse. Sheen has also been known to become physical with the ladies in his life, most notably with current wife Brooke Mueller. USA Today reports that he also had an altercation with a girlfriend back in 1996. We all remember the bitter custody battle that ensued between Sheen and ex-wife Denise Richards in recent years.
It would be acceptable enough if the man had had a little too much to drink. But, new reports indicate that porn star Capri Anderson was in the hotel room with Sheen on Monday night (cbsnews.com). In fact, she was the one who called security, it is believed. So, what does this tell us, folks? It looks like some things never change.
Sheen has had bout after bout of bad press, at his own doing, while the ratings for his show soar. I don’t know how people can continue to watch him. Every time I see his face, I am reminded of the women that he has hurled his anger at, and it disgusts me. There was a time when I enjoyed the talent that Sheen brought to the movie screen, but that was a long time ago.
The man needs more than just probation and rehab. Those things are obviously not working for him. About a month ago, People.com reported that Sheen walked his 25 year-old daughter down the aisle. How can he have the audacity to bring a porn star younger than his daughter – she’s 22 – to his hotel room? It’s despicable, and it is a reflection of the type of person he really is.
Denise Richards must be a saint. She has to shield her two young daughters (with Sheen) from the constant negativity surrounding their father. Then, she is on hand to help when he is taken to the hospital Monday night. After all that she has been through with Sheen herself, Richards is perhaps the only friend he’s got right now.
There’s not much hope that Charlie is going to become a changed man. The worst part about it is that he’s got a total of four young children (twins with Mueller, too), and he won’t even be a better person for them. I know that alcoholism is a disease, and drug addictions are hard to kick, but it doesn’t appear that he’s trying very hard. And, that is probably making a lot of people very sad, most importantly his kids.
