It's Not Easy Being Sheen
Charlie Sheen's strange meltdown has gone nuclear. Last October, he was hospitalized after he was allegedly found naked in a trashed Plaza Hotel room with a frightened prostitute. The Two and a Half Men actor reportedly checked into Promises rehab facility shortly after.
Well, that is all so 2010. Charlie is upping the ante in 2011. Just two months into the New Year, and the party animal has been hospitalized again for allegedly partying with porn stars. You'd think a rehab specialist who makes house calls would be enough to keep the star from self-destructing. But over the past few weeks, the actor has waged a public battle against critics and friends. His nonsensical, paranoid and borderline megalomaniacal rants on talk radio got his sitcom cancelled for the remainder of the season. He has appeared on multiple television shows defending his lifestyle and claiming that he cured his addictions with his mind. He's a celebrity gossip gift that keeps on giving. He has turned his personal struggles into a public spectacle. To his credit, most celebrities try to avoid the spotlight when wrestling with their demons. Charlie Sheen is practically selling tickets to his wrestling match.
