It’s been a few days since we learned that Charlie Sheen would commit himself to 3 months of rehab … and then learned that his rehab treatment will take place in his own home. Today we get to hear from Sheen himself because he is finally speaking publicly about his latest bout of drama … oh yeah, we also learn that Sheen will not be committing himself to 3 months of rehab … it’ll actually be more like 3 weeks of in-house treatment.
In an interview with E! News, Sheen said the idea that rumors such as CBS ditching Men is “all crap” and chastised the media as “pathetic” for focusing on his problems when there’s unrest in Egypt. “Believe nothing,” he texted. “I will never speak about any of this as long as I’m alive. You’re all gonna have to keep towing the same redundant line, guessing wrong.” Sheen is currently undergoing stay-at-home rehab treatment while production on his CBS hit series Two and a Half Men has been suspended.
Just moments after Sheen vowed that he would “never speak about any of this” he issued an official statement on the matter:
“I have a lot of work to do to be able to return the support I have received from so many people. I want to say ‘thank-you’ to my fellow cast members, the crew of Two and a Half Men, and everyone at CBS and Warner Bros., especially Les Moonves and Bruce Rosenblum for their concern and support. And to my fans, your good wishes have touched me very much. Like Errol Flynn, who had to put down his sword on occasion, I just want to say, ‘thank-you.’”
So there you have it, straight from the horse’s mouth. While I find it extremely difficult to believe that the man is actually committed to his own sobriety, I do wish him the best of luck. I am also very impressed by Sheen‘s concern for the political unrest in Egypt. Maybe he’ll learn something in his 3 weeks of rehab and maybe he’ll eventually realize that risking his own life just to have a good time isn’t worth the damage it would do to his family, most especially his young children. So yeah … good luck, Chuck.
