Claiming he is completely sober, actor Charlie Sheen said today he plans to show up for work despite CBS's decision yesterday to pull the plug on the top-rated comedy "Two and a Half Men" this season.

In a text message to ABC's "Good Morning America," Sheen also said he has a Plan B and is in talks with HBO about starting his own show called "Sheen's Corner," which would be a whopping $5 million-per-episode deal.

But RadarOnline.com reported shortly after that HBO is not in talks with Sheen for any show.

Sheen's weird behavior didn't end there.

In a photo from Wednesday published on the website of the London newspaper The Daily Mail, Sheen was seen with his wife, Brooke Mueller, and girlfriends Natalie Kenly, a nanny, and porn star Bree Olsen, on their way to the Bahamas.

Mueller and Sheen are in the midst of finalizing their divorce, but have inexplicably been seen together over the past week. But Sheen said Mueller left the vacation early and wished her "luck" in her travels -- sarcastically adding that his ex-wife is "going to need it, badly."

Sheen had a message for the other women in his life: "I have real fame, they have nothing. They have zero. They have that night. And I will forget about them as the last image of them exits my beautiful home."

On Thursday, Sheen attacked the show's producer Chuck Lorre in a bizarre letter to TMZ.com from the Bahamas, saying, "What does this say about [Lorre] after he tried to use his words to judge and attempt to degrade me.

"I gracefully ignored this folly for 177 shows ... I fire back once and this contaminated little maggot can't handle my power and can't handle the truth."

The "Two and a Half Men" star continued his rant today against Lorre -- referring to him as a "clown" and "loser" in the text messages to ABC.

The show has been in hiatus since last month when Sheen entered rehab following a 36-hour bender with booze, drugs and porn stars. :clap:

In a series of interviews, Sheen also called Lorre "a stupid, stupid little man and a p---y punk that I'd never want to be like."

Sheen also referred to Lorre as a "turd."

Bummer.

War is an extension of economics and diplomacy through other means.

Economics and diplomacy are methods of securing resources used by humans.

Securing resources is the one necessary behavior for all living things.

War = Life

Yes its a real bummer for the 200 plus people Charley just put out of work for his behavior. This time his melt down will cost him, but unfortunatly Charly could just retire, and unless he was totally stupid, live the rest of his life in luxury. I can't imagine the residuals he will make alone for quite a long time, if reruns keep going.

The show is great because of him, but it is also great becasue of the cast of costars. John Cryer is really funny, as is Conchita Farrel. The kid is really underrated and plays his part perfectly. Its not just Charley Sheen.

The real tragic part of this as well as seeing a prime example of the road to self destruction, is the fact 200 families, just like you and I, lost their jobs. We only hear about the $2M per episode Charley gets, we don;t think about the stagehands, and set people, make up artists, film and editing crews, all the people who make their money like any factory worker paid a scale for an hours work. The are not multi-millionaires, they are regular folks with regular homes and cars, kids in school, little league and scouts, just paying the bills and chipping away paycheck to paycheck, like everyone else. Its a feast or famon industry, and many of them called the unemployement dept. this morning. Way to go Charley Jerk Sheen.

News a few days ago was CS spending $780,000 on 4 cars, 3 of them going to his prostitute friends, and 1 to his ex wife. The cheapest car went to the Ex wife, was $160,000. I doubt any of the stage crews have these kind of cars.

One positive thing with Charley's rant about his employers, is that he has stooped so low, he just lifted up Mel Gibson and Jesse James to a higher level of regard. Charley Sheen is headed for a bad end, and it isn;t far away.

Charlie and Lindsey would make a lovely couple. Glad those nuts are on the left hand side of the nation.

Of course this wouldn't be the same tune played if it was a different kind of sickness he was enduring, say cancer. There is a double standard in society when it comes to mental illness versus physical illness. Stigmatizing.

Boloney, Charley has been to rehab and given more chances anyone deserves. He was doing this long before this show, and still got into this job. One good thing appears he has the common sence to not drive when he does what he does.

This guy is really out of control!

Sheen says he wants a raise to return to show

NEW YORK – Charlie Sheen says he wants a raise to come back to the CBS show "Two and a Half Men."

The troubled star appeared on dueling morning show interviews Monday to continue an attack on CBS and producers of his hit sitcom for shutting down the show because of his off-set behavior. Both ABC's "Good Morning America" and NBC's "Today" show aired lengthy segments of their interviews in their first and second half hours.

It was startling television that overshadowed morning-after Oscars coverage. Sheen boasted about his "epic" partying, said he's fueled by "violent hatred" of his bosses, said he cleaned up from drugs at home at his "Sober Valley Lodge" and said he's "tired of pretending I'm not a total, bitchin' rock star from Mars."

NBC interviewer Jeff Rossen appeared taken aback when Sheen said he wanted to be paid $3 million an episode to return to the show. He's reportedly paid $1.8 million an episode now, one of the highest-paid actors on television.

"You want a raise?" Rossen asked.

Replied Sheen: "Yeah, look what they put me through."

On ABC, Sheen said to correspondent Andrea Canning that he planned to sue his bosses.

"Wouldn't you?" he said. "I've got a whole family to support and love. People beyond me are relying on that. I'm here to collect. They're going to lose. They're going to lose in a courtroom, so I would recommend that they settle out of court."

Complete entertainment coverageWhile Sheen said in a radio interview last week that it would be impossible to do a ninth season of "Two and a Half Men" with the show's creators in charge, he said in the television interviews he's ready to work another season.

He said CBS owes him an apology, "publicly, while licking my feet."

Sheen, who was hospitalized three times in three months, said that he's bored now with cocaine. But he said he "exposed people to magic" when they partied with him and that he loved doing drugs.

"What's not to love?" he said on ABC. "Especially when you see how I party. It was epic. The run I was on made Sinatra, Flynn, Jagger, Richards just look like droopy-eyed armless children."

ABC and Radar Online had Sheen's blood and urine tested for drugs over the weekend.

The results were "a big win for Charlie Sheen, no question," said Radar's Dylan Howard. He said the dual tests revealed Sheen hadn't had drugs in at least 72 hours.

"I am on a drug," Sheen said. "It's called Charlie Sheen. It's not available because if you try it you will die. Your face will melt off and your children will weep over your exploded body."

When Canning asked Sheen whether the people who supplied him with drugs were out of his life, Sheen hesitated.

"That's nobody's business," he said. "I think you know the answer to that."

The interviews heightened the competition between the two top-rated morning shows. ABC spokeswoman Alison Bridgman said Sheen had promised Saturday that ABC would get the only television interview last weekend but "changed his mind." Both "Today" and "Good Morning America" said they planned to air more segments of their interview on Tuesday, and ABC is planning a "20/20" special with Sheen on Tuesday.

Both networks had their own boasts: "Today" said Sheen had given NBC his "first morning show interview," while ABC said it had gotten the "first television interview since the controversy erupted."

Who cares.

Bring back Archie Bunker--they'll forget all about Charlie.

I agree--double standard is an absolute fact.
