UPDATE: Forget Oprah, Charlie Sheen should have his own channel.
The actor’s media tour continues Monday night with an appearance on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight, followed by a return visit to NBC’s Today show tomorrow morning, and then Access Hollywood that evening.
On Morgan, Sheen said that he would apologize to CBS Corp. CEO Les Moonves and seemed to shrug off his earlier demand for a Two and a Half Men salary raise to $3 million per episode. “That was stupid,” he said.
When Morgan said the actor has taken cocaine, Sheen quipped: “I’m not taking it, I had to pay for it.”
Sheen admitted that advertisers threatened to pull out of Men due to headlines about his behavior and complained that CBS brass and Men creator Chuck Lorre have not called him since he tore into the producer in a series of interviews.
“It would be nice if there was some measure of support from anybody at this point,” Sheen said.
Access put out a teaser that quoted Sheen reacting to rumors of CBS’ interest in actor John Stamos as a potential replacement for him on Men (sources dismiss the reports): “I like John, but he don’t have what I have and the show sucks if he’s on it. Sorry!”
As for the description of Sheen’s appearance tomorrow on Today: “Sheen opens up about his new live-in girlfriends he calls ‘the goddesses’ [porn star Bree Olsen, model Natalie Kenly]. Plus, ‘the goddesses’ speak out about the Charlie Sheen behind closed doors and how they feel about his children.”
