Too late to help Charlie Sheen, 'Sesame Street' explains adverse allergic reactions [poll]
Had Charlie Sheen watched Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel on "Sesame Street" instead of swinging by "Mary Poppins" with ex-wife Denise Richards and their daughters in New York on Sunday, he might have learned a little something about allergic reactions.
And perhaps a more informed "Two and a Half Men" star could have avoided the "adverse allergic reaction" his publicist says got him hospitalized early Tuesday after Sheen reportedly trashed his room at the Plaza Hotel and made his companion -- said to be a hooker -- scream and cry and call security while hiding inside the closet.
Rumors of a cocaine binge aside, we'd like to give Charlie the benefit of the doubt for a second or two. Maybe he just had an adverse allergic reaction to some of the city's bedbugs? Wait, those were at the Waldorf-Astoria, not the Plaza.
