Today in Charlie Sheenanigans: Sheen slams AA and 'Two and a Half Men' creator

Sheen Another day, another chocolate-milk-fueled rant: On Thursday, silence-adverse "Two and a Half Men" star Charlie Sheen called into "The Alex Jones Show" radio program and took a shot at Alcoholics Anonymous and Chuck Lorre, the co-creator of his hit show, adding to an ever-lengthening list of targets that also includes Lindsay Lohan.

"I was told if I went on the attack, they would cancel the show," Sheen said of his CBS bosses. But that didn't seem to stop him.

Angered by the vanity card that Lorre aired after an episode of "Two and a Half Men" saying he'd be angry if Sheen outlived him, Sheen called the executive producer a “clown” and tried to insult him by revealing that his real name is “Haim Levine.” (It's actually Charles Michael Levine.)

“I didn’t care about that vanity card, I went straight home and dispelled that, that was actually one of the few compliments that clown has paid me in frickin’ almost a decade,” Sheen said on the show.

“I embarrassed him in front of his children and the world by healing at a pace that his un-evolved mind cannot process.... I’ve spent, I think, close to the last decade, I don’t know, effortlessly and magically converting your tin cans into pure gold. And the gratitude I get is this charlatan chose not to do his job, which is to write.”

Sheen has previously admitted that his sobriety has been "off and on," though he brushed off the idea that AA would help him, calling the organization a “bootleg cult” with a 5% success rate. Sheen insisted that he'd been healing himself with his mind.

This isn't the first time Sheen has opined so freely on "The Alex Jones Show": in 2009, he went on the air to publicly request that President Obama reopen the official investigation into 9/11 to see whether the government agreed to lie about the official story.

Whether this most recent interview would inspire similar controversy didn't seem to worry Sheen. Asked about his health, he replied "It’s all good guys. Quit panicking. No panic, no judgment.... You can kill me but you do not have the right to judge me.”

go away

Wow...it appears that Charlie is trying to out one of his Jewish producers; " he tried to insult him by revealing that his real name is “Haim Levine.” Where's Rabbi Marvin when the left needs him now?

Interesting that he would discuss Chuck Lorre's real name. Doesn't he realize that Sheen isn't his real family name either?
Put Big Bang Theory back on Mondays and give Mike and Molly a fitting intro. Two and a Half men is just not that funny anymore, despite what the ratings say.

Charlie is a naughty boy that's part of his charm. He and the cast In T.A.A.H.M are magnificent, the scripts are magnificent.Every episode hit's the spot. Get over yourselves guys and keep loyal to your fans.Laughter is the one thing that gets us through these troubled times. Who cares if Charlie likes a tipple and a snort anyway, it's his Liver and his nose..... and none of our damn business. Keep on keeping on guys, the press love you, they need you, and so do your dedicated fans.

Given that Charlie Sheen's real name is Carlos Estevez, why does he think it's a big deal if someone else has a stage name? He's making no sense -- which, given his history, is a bad, bad sign....

Charlie sheen is a freakin idiot. If it wasn't for chuck lorre he would even be on the show not to mention its not lorre who has been holding up the show it has been charlie and his crap.

I'm enjoying watching this spoiled, withered, little turd who was born on third and spent his life thinking he hit a triple self-destruct. It's all going away, Charlie!! Say goodbye!!

Actually, people that work a 12-Step Program have an average success rate of 37 percent.

Sheen is an addict and addiction is progressive....in other words. Sheen's ego and his self-will run riot will be his destruction.

Although I don't know how well Charlie is doing--and it doesn't appear too good to me--he is right about the incredibly low success rate of A.A. That is according to their own inner documents. In fact, their rate of success is no better than people who try to stop alcoholic behavior on their own.

Charlie Sheen is my hero.

Let this train wreck go and let him hit bottom... he clearly is enjoying himself and his narcissism

Well, if I had a family member in need of help with their addiction problem, and I had a choice of sending them to an AA meeting or to Charlie Sheen's house for the evening, I still think I might choose AA. I'm just guessing here, but that's what I think right now.

Charlie - good luck with the chemical dependency. AA has worked for some people. If you can get your addiction under control without it, great! I do wonder where the 5% success rate comes from, though. As there is no formal organization in AA, they don't gather statistics like that. They spend all their money on coffee instead.

Dear John? Where do you get your numbers? First off... if people who 'work' a 12-step program actually have a 100% success rate... secondly, it is an anonymous program...how would you know what the numbers really are???

Sounds like you have some program in you... but not nearly enough.

How would any of you know what the success rate of AA realllly is? How naive and ignorant the comments really are...

Yea Charlie, the AA program does not work very well when you have a coke straw up either nostril, a 2 litre of Jack Daniels in one hand and 3 hookers in the other. But it is 100% effective when you take the suggestions of the folks who are successful in AA....keep getting your advice from the bottom of a whisky bottle you'll figure it out eventually.

Charlie who?

Oh Charlie.. you are very angry & sad and your ugly heart is shining through bright.

OK, it's official: "Charlie Sheen", aka Carlos Estevez, is a raving lunatic. I agree with "lame" who said, "Let this train wreck go and let him hit bottom... he clearly is enjoying himself and his narcissism."

There is no bigger talentless ass-clown that Charlie Sheen. It's insanely remarkable how he's managed to make so much from so little.
