Everyone seems to understand this but Charlie Sheen, but Charlie Sheen is crazy now. Earlier today his longtime publicist Stan Rosenfield resigned, saying…
“I worked with Charlie Sheen for a long time and I care about him very much, however, at this time, I’m unable to work effectively as his publicist and have respectfully resigned.”
To which Sheen replied with equal dignity and poise.
“Pussy. He’s not allowed to quit, so you’re fired.”
A lawyer for Sheen has also now sent a letter to CBS demanding he get paid for the 8 episodes of Two and a Half Men that they had to cancel because of him, but CBS has lawyers too, and they’re way better than Charlie Sheens, so instead of cowering in fear and catering to his every whim, they’re in active talks to replace him. E! says…
While Charlie Sheen was on a press tour this weekend, CBS’ top boss was on a quest to save Two and a Half Men.
I just got word that Les Moonves had a nice chat with John Stamos on Saturday about replacing Sheen on the hit sitcom.
Sources exclusively tell me that Moonves approached Stamos at Jeffrey Katzenberg’s Night Before benefit at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
“They were at the bar talking and Les asked John if he’d be interested in replacing Charlie,” one source says. “It wouldn’t be to play Charlie’s character but they talked more about introducing a new character.”
It seems unlikely that this would work but the show was doomed anyway because of Sheens behavior over the past month. Still I bet the cast is looking forward to working with someone who isn’t being kept alive by stabbing a gallon of cocaine into his heart every morning.
