Charlie Sheen was hospitalized shortly this past week after allegedly trashing his hotel room at the Plaza Hotel where he accused his lady friend of stealing his wallet. Police responded to a call that an emotionally disturbed individual had caused a ruckus at the hotel.
This is not the first time Charlie Sheen has made the tabloids. At various times, he has been formally charged with felony menacing, third-degree assault and criminal mischief as well as being charged with domestic violence. Shame on you, Charlie.
Charlie Sheen is the son of actor Martin Sheen and Janet Templeton who have two other sons and a daughter, all of whom are actors. We never hear a word of gossip about Martin Sheen and his wife, or for that matter Charlie’s siblings. Martin Sheen is a devoutly religious man who took his stage name from Catholic Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen. His birth name is Ramon Estevez. When his son Charlie first started receiving headlines about his escapades, his father asked the public for their prayers for Charlie.
Charlie Sheen can be seen currently on the TV sitcom Two and a Hal Men, for which he receives $1.88 million for each episode. In 1994, he was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
It is not too late for Charlie Sheen to turn his life around. His alleged use of cocaine is probably the biggest cause of his trouble. He has been in Rehab at least twice; however, this has not solved his problem. As we hear often, the desire to change has to come from Charlie himself.
Charlie has four children by his two ex-wives, a successful career and parents and siblings who want the best for him. If only he could see what he is doing to his loved ones as well as to himself.
We have so many role models from the Hollywood community. Ron Howard, Matt Damon, Clint Eastwood, Robert Redford, to name a few. Charlie, turn your life around. Read about these prominent fellow actors, model yourself after them. Perhaps prayer could help. Give it a try. You have a long life ahead of you with the possibility of doing much good in the world. Make a real name for yourself instead of the sordid, unpleasant reputation you have made for yourself. I am looking forward to hearing good things about you. Don’t disappoint your fans.
