You know that feeling you get when you’ve gone too far? You get that pit in your stomach, your temperature shoots up and you know it’s time to SHUT UP? Well, Charlie Sheen has not had that feeling! I’m guessing here. I could be way off, but methinks the verbal diarrhea on display here lately proves me right. Good ole Charlie Sheen doesn’t know when to shut his trap. The reasons for this lack of instinct are part of an ongoing debate in the media. Is he so high out of his mind that he can’t stop himself? Is he on some sort of crazy comedown from all the drugs that he’s just spiraling toward a crash? Has he just fried his brain so completely at this point that he doesn’t have those natural instincts that lean more toward common sense? I, for one, don’t have the answers. I just know that it’s been beyond sad to watch this grown man spiral into who knows what and just grimacing in wait for the crash and burn. He has undoubtedly provided humor along the way. Some things certainly made me say what the eff? With talk of trolls and fools and awakening a sleeping giant. Huh, Charlie? However, there are some missing pieces that I can’t stop thinking about. This whole time I have been thinking about his kids. There are five of them. The oldest is grown and recently married. The other four are all very young, impressionable, well…kids. The youngest being two year old twins. How in the world do you explain their father’s behavior and recent tirades to them? How do you shield them from it? Can you? Especially when he thinks his children will one day see his behavior as gnarly. His word, not mine. He says he’s leading them by example. What example is that, exactly? I hope his hold on the media’s spotlight goes away soon and I hope he does as well. Only I hope that he goes someplace where there is real help. For him, I’m not sure what that place is – I just hope it happens soon. There’s only so much you can explain to 2 year olds. Thoughts?

  1. I have been watching this unfold and am surprised to realize that I can’t get enough of it. This meltdown is like OJ, Anna Nicole and Michael Jackson all rolled into one very untidy package, but I can’t stop watching, reading and listening to all that he has to say even if it is really strange stuff. I do feel badly for his kids and have to wonder what the heck his most recent ex wife is doing by leaving those kids with him. Even if he isn’t on drugs he is clearly messed up. And, leaving them with a porn star for a babysitter just wouldn’t work for me.

  2. Jen, I know! I couldn’t agree with you more! They ask him about the 2 year old twins and he says “they’re in there somewhere”. I’m like, huh? There is a time to be funny dude and this ain’t it! And yet, I can’t look away! 🙂

  3. This is tragic on so many levels, but I really think that he must be seriously, seriously ill.

    I don’t say this to excuse anything; I say it because I think he’s dangerously close to self-destruction.

    I feel for his children, and fear for them, too.
    The saddest part of all of this is that nothing will happen to alter this situation unless he wants it to.

  4. Cam, I agree with you. Everytime I hear about him on the news I change the channel. Because he NEEDS help and I am glad that they got the kids away from him until he gets help and control over his life.

    • Wanda – living out here and working in the entertainment industry it’s all we talk about. So sad – but true. I really hope he gets help SOON.
