Last night I sat down to watch ABC’s 20/20 interview with Charlie Sheen. After witnessing him self-destruct on CNN with Piers Morgan, I thought nothing could surprise me. But I was wrong. Very. Wrong.
To say Charlie Sheen is off the deep-end would be the understatement of the decade. Not even the world’s greatest fiction writer could come up with the disturbing statements that came out of his mouth.
“I am on a drug. It’s called Charlie Sheen. It’s not available. If you try it once, you will die. Your face will melt off and your children will weep over your exploded body.”
“I’m tired of pretending I’m not a total bitchin’ rock star from Mars.”
“If you borrowed my brain for five seconds, you’d be like, ‘Dude! Can’t handle it, unplug this bastard!’ “It fires in a way that’s maybe not from, uh… this terrestrial realm.”
“I was banging seven-gram rocks, because that’s how I roll. I have one speed, I have one gear: Go.”
“Look what I’m dealing with, man, I’m dealing with fools and trolls.”
“I’m bi-winning.” “The only thing I’m addicted to right now is winning.”
“I wish him nothing but pain in his silly travels especially if they wind up in my octagon. Clearly I have defeated this earthworm with my words — imagine what I would have done with my fire breathing fists.”
“ CBS picked a fight with a warlock.”
“I will not believe that if I do something then I have to follow a certain path because it was written for normal people. People who aren’t special. People who don’t have tiger blood and Adonis DNA.”
I literally stared at my television with my mouth wide open and my jaw on the floor. I had no idea just how delusional Charlie Sheen has become. And quite frankly, it’s alarming at best. Although I have to admit, Charlie made ONE coherent and rather lucid statement when he said something along the lines of how it’s disturbing when ‘Breaking News’ revolves around what’s been happening in his personal life as opposed to what’s happening in Libya.
Yet clearly, Charlie should NOT be giving live interviews on television. Especially considering his publicist, Stan Rosenfield, recently dropped him as a client. And here’s a little tip, Charlie, please do not speak with the media while you are obviously undergoing crack-cocaine withdrawl. It’s too upsetting to watch.
While I don’t particularly believe the fact that he’s a mega celebrity means he has an obligation to present himself as a role model to the general public. However he most certainly has an obligation to his family and all five of his children.
What’s happening to Charlie is indeed very sad. My heart and sympathy go out to his father Martin Sheen. As a parent myself I can’t even begin to imagine how Martin must feel watching his son, Charlie, completely unravel AND in front of America. It has to be absolutely devastating.
As of late, Charlie has lost his job, he’s lost his children, and seemingly he’s lost his mind. I fear if he continues down this destructive path he’s going to join the ranks of Anna Nicole Smith and Michael Jackson.
