The official story is still that Charlie Sheen was only in a hospital yesterday because of a hernia he got from laughing too hard, and yet, today he “voluntarily” entered an undisclosed rehab, and his CBS show Two and a Half Men will be temporarily shut down because of it.
Sheen’s highly successful sitcom, Two and a Half Men, is going on hiatus due to the star’s decision to enter rehab, according to a statement from CBS, Warner Bros. Television and executive producer Chuck Lorre.
“We are profoundly concerned for his health and well-being, and support his decision,” they say in the statement.
Well, obviously he was forced to do this, because not only does he not care about getting clean, he thinks he’s cool. Earlier today, a source told People.
“He loves the attention, he loves to shock people, he loves that he gets away with all of this. And he can because there are no consequences – that’s the problem. It’s who he is, like it or leave it.”
Could someone please just introduce him to Lindsay so we can get this over with and move on with our lives.
PREDICTABLE UPDATE – In a text message this evening, Sheen said, “I’m fine. People don’t seem to get it…. Guy can’t have a great time and do his job also?”
