World Skeptical as Charlie "Tiger Blood" Sheen Declares He's "Winning!"

Thanks to the advent of social media, specifically Twitter, the public now has unprecedented access to celebrities. Case in point, one middle-aged sitcom actor named Charlie Sheen. The 45 year old Two and a Half Men star has taken the internet and media world by storm. From interviews airing on ABC, TMZ, and The Howard Stern Show, to being a trending Google and Twitter topic, the man is everywhere.

Can't keep up with the hoopla? Here's what you need to know:

  • Two and Half Men has been shut down for the season. (I will judge you if you are upset about this.) The final straw was Charlie publicly calling creator Chuck Lorre "...a stupid, stupid little man and a pu**y punk that I never want to be like."
  • Charlie claims he is not on drugs, or not the kind you think. He cured himself: "I closed my eyes and made it so with the power of my mind," and don't forget that his "tiger blood" and "Adonis DNA" make him above addiction. He tells reporters, "I am on a drug. It's called Charlie Sheen."
  • Charlie is living in his LA home nicknamed "Sober Valley Lodge" with two women nicknamed "goddesses." One (Natalie) is a graphic designer and one (Rachel) is a porn star.
  • Charlie and the goddesses are all in a relationship. There is most definitely sex. "Together, it's like, it's on. Sorry, Middle America. Yeah, I said it," Charlie says. "Natty and Charlie have their own special connection," Rachel explains. "I have my own connection with Charlie, and then Natty and I also have our own relationship."
  • It's not just about sex. "Maybe the three of us will get married. I don't know," Sheen joked. "I'm gonna say this. It's a polygamy story. All my guy friends are gonna like throw tomatoes at me. It's like an organic union of the hearts."
  • Charlie's nearly 2 year old twin sons Bob and Max were staying at the house as well, until the star was forced to surrender them to police after estranged wife Brooke Mueller filed a restraining order and a judge stripped Charlie of custody. "This is not the America that I grew up in," Sheen is heard saying, as the cameras rolled. "Tiger blood now drips from my fangs!"
  • His parenting wisdom includes gems such as, "I can say, 'Hey kids, your dad's a rock star. Look at his experiences. Look at what he survived.' Bang. There are some of your lessons" and "Lead by example and teach your kids right and wrong. If my right and wrong is a little bit different than anybody else, then my kids will be different too."
  • He joined Twitter on March 1 and broke the Guinness World Record for reaching 1 million followers quicker than anyone else. He's since shared these photos on Twitter:

Charlie and a "goddess" invite you to 'choose your vice'. One hallucinogenic chocolate milk for him, one Naked juice for her.


Proof positive that Charlie is "Winner!", because if a cake says it, it must be true.


What was Charlie up to Tuesday morning? Playing free-form 'Pong' on his flat screen and reminding everyone he is "still winning!"

Here's a little fill in the blank fun:

If Charlie Sheen is "Winning!" then I'm _________________.

All of the hoopla and ensuing media attention has led some outlets to seemingly take the high road. From Studio Briefing:

"While it is tempting to participate in the media's rubbernecking of the Charlie Sheen pileup, Studio Briefing has decided to opt out and limit our coverage of it only to its commercial effects."

We fully agree with Mediaite.com's Washington correspondent Tommy Christopher, who wrote Monday that those interviewers who are featuring Sheen on their programs are "not just pointing at Charlie Sheen's self-immolation, they are throwing gasoline on it, and with Sheen's distress as obvious as it is, making accomplices of the audience."

Ben Grossman, editor-in-chief of Broadcasting & Cable magazine, probably put it best, saying, "As it has become apparent that Mr. Sheen is in need of help, this news organization will not exploit his condition for ratings and we feel at this point airing this interview is not a legitimate news story. We wish him the best of luck going forward." He then chided the entire media industry for "celebrating the sad effects of an illness. And that is not a healthy way to do business."

Is it fair to enjoy watching the Charlie circus?
