Charlie Sheen Wants His Job Back

Photo c2011 Ann Lawlor/Showbiz411
Well, this is about as surprising as Lindsay Lohan failing a drug test. 

Mr. Tiger Blood appeared at Radio City Music Hall on Friday night.  He was half an hour late.  Frankly, I'm shocked he wasn't tardier.  According to Roger Friedman, who was there, the theater was empty enough that he could move down from Row T to Row RR, to seats on the aisle with plenty available around him. 

Apparently patrons began booing Charlie from the beginning.  The "show" consisted of an interview with a friend and some rerecorded answers to Sheen's previous interview with ABC's Andrea Canning.  I smell a threat of a lawsuit in 3 . . . 2 . . .

According to Friedman, despite the prodding from his "friend", Charlie couldn't come up with any gossipy stories and appeared listless and uninterested.  When the audience heckled him, he cursed at them. 

He did inform the audience that he's had lots of sex with lots of hookers and has taken lots of drugs.  All old news.  Certainly not worth the price of admission.

He admitted that he wanted his job with Two and A Half Men back and even invited Chuck Lorre to come hash out the details with him today (Sunday).  Yes, this is the same Chuck Lorre that Sheen was so disdainful of last month 

He also took potshots at Oliver Stone and his own brother, Emilio.  Nevermind that thanks to Stone, he got his big break in Platoon or that his brother has never said an ill word about him and has actually appeared with their father, Martin Sheen, to beg Charlie to get help.  I think the lashing out at his brother bothers me most about this.

I am amazed that people are paying $70+ for tickets to watch this crap.  Are they paying because they are expecting Sheen to OD on the stage?  Because honestly, is he really saying or doing anything noteworthy enough to take time out of your schedule to go see him, much less pay to do so? 

And I hope that Chuck Lorre doesn't even think about meeting with Sheen and taking him back.  Sheen has royally screwed his career and after his disgraceful behavior and comments, he doesn't deserve another chance.  At least not with Lorre and Warner Bros.  Welcome to the real world, Chuck.

  1. I'm so sick of this guy and I'm glad they didn't take him back. Honestly, enough is enough.

Are You Watching Detroit 1-8-7?

If you're not watching Detroit 1-8-7, you should be.  This is one of those shows that has a lot of promise, that works really well now and will only get better over time . . . but gets almost no marketing and no push from its network.  Those bastards. 

I have dealt with this in the past with NBC (Nothing But Cancellations) - - remember JourneymanThe Black DonnellysMy Own Worst Enemy?  All shows that had interesting concepts and could have really been developed but were cancelled in their first seasons.  Shame, NBC.

I hope ABC doesn't follow suit with Detroit 1-8-7.  If you like dramas that involve police investigations, Detroit 1-8-7 will fit the bill.  Michael Imperioli, late of The Sopranos and Life on Mars, helms this show as Detective Louis Fitch and while I haven't always been a huge fan of his, he nails this role.  Without him, this would be just other generic drama but he brings so much depth and interest to this role, it elevates the show out of cookie cutte…

Meet Melissa, the Queen Bridezilla

So I was channel surfing last night and ended up having a good two (okay, maybe three) hours of my life drained by WE's bridal bitchfest Bridezillas.  I realize the point of the show is to showcase what out of control hags some women are when planning their weddings but Miss Melissa really takes the cake. 

First, she claims to be 23 and I always find it interesting that most of these chicks look older than they claim to be.  I'd like to see a birth certificate before I agree to that.  She also claims to be in medical school, which is really funny considering (1) Melissa seems to have an awful lot of free time on her hands, to bitch, whine, complain and threaten to kill people and (2) for someone who claims to want a career saving lives, she sure talks about taking a lot of them.  (Case in point:  Melissa, concerned that she won't be happy with her wedding cake, tells the camera that if the baker screws it up, she will kill her and eat her). 

So . . . Melissa and her oh-s…

20/20: The Hennis/Eastburn Case Profiled in "Witness"

Thank goodness for online television viewing because I missed this episode of 20/20 which aired a few weeks back, dealing with the seemingly improbable legal case of Tim Hennis. 

I have kept up with much of the Hennis case, involving the brutal 1985 murders of Katie Eastburn and two of her daughters, Kara and Erin.  I read the excellently written book Innocent Victims by Scott Whisnant.  I watched the well done television movie of the same name. 

I found the 20/20 segment to be very well done, presenting as much of the overwhelming amount of evidence as possible within the forty or so minutes allowed.  Particularly heartbreaking were the emotional interviews with the victims' husband and father, Gary Eastburn, and the surviving Eastburn child, Jana, who was less than two years old at the time of the murders. 

20/20 also interviewed author Scott Whisnant, who continues to hold firm to his belief that Tim Hennis is innocent and has been railroaded, as well as Hennis' former de…
