Charlie Sheen's media warpath offends warlocks, rankles Mars enthusiasts

Celebrity rants of yore have offended plenty of minority groups, but Charlie Sheen’s bizarro comments in the past week have alienated some niche communities, including Wiccan groups and Mars enthusiasts.

Christian Day, an actual warlock who’s been outspoken about Sheen’s use of the term “Vatican assassin warlock,” will perform a cleansing ceremony on Sunday in Salem, Mass., to “protect, heal, and bind” Sheen by sending him ideas — directly into his head, via light — against maligning warlocks in the future. Day finds Sheen’s understanding of warlocks shoddy, to say the least. “The Vatican has assassinated plenty of warlocks, but the assassins are not warlocks themselves,” he explains.

Day will use a sword to cast a circle around himself and his fellow magic practitioners during the ritual: READ FULL STORY

What's weirdly refreshing about Charlie Sheen

Forget, for a moment, the drugs, the porn stars, the endangered TV show. There’s something else going in the Charlie Sheen saga that was rather extraordinary: How stunningly, blatantly honest Sheen has been on the topic of being a celebrity.

Has any star ever so brazenly touted the advantage of his status? “I’m tired of pretending like I’m not special,” he’s said, while slamming others as jealous losers who “lay down with their ugly wives and their ugly children,” and who wish they could have Sheen’s money, his women, his fame, his lifestyle. “I’m gonna hang out with these two smoking hotties and fly privately around the world,” he said. “It might be lonely up here but I sure like the view.” READ FULL STORY

I was knocked unconscious and required medical attention, including a CAT scan,” Mueller said, in her sworn statement, adding she had a written apology from Sheen about the incident.

The couple later engaged in an infamous Christmas Day 2009 confrontation that required law enforcement, and Mueller now claims that Sheen later told her, “I should have killed you when I had the chance.” READ FULL STORY

Charlie Sheen on 'Today': 'At this moment, I do not know where my children are.'

In another Today interview, Charlie Sheen confirmed to NBC’s Jeff Rossen that police came to his house last night, just as his two twin sons were being put to sleep, and removed them from his house, fulfilling a court order that the boys’ mother, Brooke Mueller, had attained yesterday, claiming Sheen’s home was not a proper environment for children. Sheen was composed, but admitted “At this moment, I do not know where my children are.”

Sheen denied charges that he had recently threatened Mueller’s life, and invited anyone to observe his unorthodox homelife to assure that it’s a safe and loving environment for his kids. “There’s nothing to hide,” he said. “There’s nothing but love and compassion and absolute support for these amazing children.” The entire interview is after the jump.

Charlie Sheen's children surrendered to police: Reports

Reports emerged late Tuesday night saying that Charlie Sheen has surrendered his twin boys to police custody following allegations that the beleaguered Two and a Half Men star had been abusive to his ex-wife. A source has reportedly confirmed to People that the police visited Sheen’s Beverly Hills mansion Tuesday evening and removed the two boys. Earlier on Tuesday, Sheen’s ex Brooke Mueller won a restraining order based on her allegations that the actor was physically and verbally abusive to Mueller. According to People, a judge has prohibited Sheen from getting within 100 yards of Mueller or the children.

Late Tuesday, Sheen tweeted: “My sons’ are fine… My path is now clear… Defeat is not an option..!”

Both Sheen and Mueller are required to attend a hearing on March 22 to determine whether the restraining order is extended.

Charlie Sheen gives Piers Morgan biggest audience since his premiere with Oprah

Charlie-Sheen-on-Piers-MorganWhat’s a Charlie Sheen interview really worth?

If you’re CNN’s Piers Morgan, about double your usual audience.

Monday’s Piers Morgan Tonight, in which the Brit host interviewed Sheen, was seen by 1.3 million viewers. That ties Morgan’s second night on the job as his biggest audience since his show’s January premiere — and that episode featured a heavily promoted interview with Oprah Winfrey. Among the show’s adults 25-54 demo, Morgan had 561,000 — his best ever (including the Oprah episode).

Here’s what’s most remarkable: The interview was only announced via Twitter five minutes before it started airing live, just as Sheen pulled into the building. Imagine the rating if the network had a day to promote it.

Among the morning shows interviewing Sheen, NBC’s Today had 6 million viewers and ABC’s GMA had 5.9 million — this is a win for Today since GMA normally has the edge the day after the Oscars . The numbers potentially bode well for ABC’s 20/20 interview with Sheen tonight.

Les Moonves talks Charlie Sheen, hopes 'Men' returns

Addressing a Morgan Stanley Technology conference in San Francisco and reported by THR, Moonves said in response to a question that Sheen is “on the air quite a bit these days. I wish he would have worked this hard to promote himself for an Emmy.”

CBS confirmed Moonves’ comments, which sought put a positive spin on the show halting production and recent dramatic events. The executive noted that in the short term the show not producing more original episodes “is actually a gainer for us.” He explained that since the Men repeats perform quite well, producing eight fewer episodes this season saves the network “quite a bit of money.” READ FULL STORY

Charlie Sheen to fans: 'Don't be worried. Celebrate this movement.'

Charlie Sheen was back on Today this morning, having invited NBC News’ Jeff Rossen to return to his home, the “Sober Valley Lodge,” Monday afternoon to tape another sit-down, as well as a kitchen chat with the two women Sheen refers to as “the goddesses.” Asked what the goddesses have that his ex-wives didn’t, Sheen said, “These women don’t judge me… They don’t lead with opinion. They don’t lead with their own needs all the time. They’re honest enough to tell me, ‘Hey look, park your nonsense. You got to help me solve this, and we solve it.’ What I tell them is don’t live in the middle. Get away from your emotions, get away from your ego, and therein lies the solution.” Sheen said all three of their opinions carry the same weight in his mansion, where the goddesses now live and help parent his twin boys, until they’re approaching crisis mode — then his age and wisdom win out. If they follow his plan then, Sheen said, “Everybody will win, and everybody’s needs will be taken care of.”  READ FULL STORY

Chuck Lorre vanity card: 'I am so outta here!'

Two and Half Men showrunner Chuck Lorre has posted a new vanity card on his Web site that runs after tonight’s episode of Mike & Molly. In the card he addresses Charlie Sheen’s situation for the first time since last week’s media ordnance deployment:

Charlie Sheen says he'd apologize to Moonves, puts down John Stamos as 'Men' replacement

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.” READ FULL STORY

'Two and a Half Men' crew will get paid

Charlie Sheen may not be getting paid for the canceled Two and a Half Men episodes — but the show’s crew is.

Sources confirm to EW that Warner Bros. will pay the Men team for four of the eight episodes that were lost due to CBS and the studio halting production on the show. Men exec producer Chuck Lorre, a studio source says, was instrumental in pushing through the payday. One estimate put the cost of reimbursing the crew for the four episodes at $2 million.

“It’s a start,” Sheen told the AP when he was told the news, noting that payments for co-stars Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones should be “next.”
