Charlie Sheen's publicist 'respectfully' resigns after latest round of actor's media outbursts

Charliesmiles Veteran Hollywood publicist Stan Rosenfield, who represented Charlie Sheen through the actor's rehab attempts and breakup with his employers on the hit sitcom "Two and a Half Men," abruptly resigned on Monday.

"I have worked with Charlie Sheen for a long time and I care about him very much," Rosenfield wrote in a brief statement. "However, at this time, I'm unable to work effectively as his publicist and have respectfully resigned." In a follow-up e-mail, Rosenfield said he had represented Sheen for at least seven years.

The move came on the same day that Sheen turned up in another round of interviews on ABC, NBC, TMZ and elsewhere, attacking everyone from CBS to his father, former "The West Wing" star Martin Sheen. Since CBS and Warner Bros. decided last week to halt production on "Two and a Half Men" after Sheen attacked his boss, Chuck Lorre, the actor has gone on a manic round of media interviews. It is unclear what role, if any, Rosenfield played in setting up those interviews.

But the public relations man was still working on the Sheen account Monday morning, when he dispelled an e-mail hoax that said Sheen had retired from acting.

Whats wrong with Charlie ? He has a heart and our leaders broke it !
Charlie knows that the real 911 investigation by real people died behind trying to wake you sheep up the ones who could go to court to tell the truth died one by one !.. On the View, Jones wanted to tell all they tried to shut him up, and the people thinks he s a nut . I could not believe one person said what is building 7 ? in the View blogs. Its the 3rd building that went down the same day NOTHING HIT IT ... all the Feds and SEC info went down in its foot print just like the twin towers into dust not fire they moved the gold before the twins went down! They now have 911 slave act on us they bring it out more and more to take away out rights ! People don't want to think that Nazis live here and that they killed the last president in America Kenney! They invent thing s to kept your mine they are also the stupid a&& news you receive ! READ ON THE REAL NEWS FLASH THIS AIN'T AMERICA ANY MORE ! Hell is coming to you sleepers ! We are not human to them !

Before anyone holds Charlie Sheens feet to the fire with too much enthusiasm forst listen to the interview on infowars.com - it was over an hour long!! All the TMZs of the world are cherrypicking the worst parts to slant the interview- BTW Sheen passed a drug test the next day. He went on about real problems facing us - not the celebutard nonsense, such as: the unanswered questions about 9/11, the fed destroying our country, how hollywood is mostly a bunch of spineless jellyfish; He isn't worryed about 2 1/2 men, they need him more then he needs the show. If you are wasting space berating him for his supposed drug addled life - you are doing what the mainstream globalist controlled media wants you to do, dance puppets dance!!! see loose change, go to infowars.com - get enlightened then come back and rant.

This has become absolutely ObSheen.

I am amazed why we care about the ramblings of a sad and tragic person and marginal talent. What other choice did the publicist have? Clearly Sheen has it all figured out.

I never could quite understand the whole Jewish/Hispanic background and names thing with the Estevez/Sheen thing. Never can keep it all straight.

Without Charlie the show will be Two Men. Charlie needs to grow up alot!

Pride comes before the fall. Charlie's gonna fall HARD!!!
He is an addict.....just has lotsa money ..and is a rich addict. Money doesn't give you character or decency..in fact it attracts a lot of phony friends who want to take advantage of your money .If he hasn't matured and grown up by this age ...he's still infantile in his thinking. and now messed up mentally---big time!
It doesn't look promising for him at all. I see destruction heading his way. Unless there is a lot of prayer for him, and the good Lord intervenes before it's too late!

StJames888, Charlie is an addict, he is going to die. DO you not get that???? He can rattle off bizzare Conspiricy theorie like trutherism, but the fact he is rattling them off at supersonic speed and actually spazzes out several times, goes off subject and rambles, threatens, and is delusional, are all part of his DISEASE called addiction, which WILL KILL HIM if he isnt help, and SOON. Your teeth dont all fall out in a year for a bad weekend, they fall out from using meth daily. Wake up dude, hes a timebomb. Do you think anyone in Hollywood would give up a truck load of money if they didnt see just how bad it is? They quit because if they keep paying him, he will die, and they still have no show, so dont blame them this time.

Well remember this folks. He is a 9/11 conspiracy believer that it was an inside job planned attack by George Bush.

Cuckoo Cuckoo Cuckoo (Same goes for Alex Jones and his fans too!).

Its not that he's sick, or need a preacher or whatever else everyone thinks...
He has MONEY and he buys toys!
Leave him be...
How he spends and what he buys is his own damn business.
What the out come is, is his responsibility.
'DON'T TELL ME WHAT TO BUY OR HOW TO ACT, ITS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS TO JUDGE!

I have no interest in Hollyweird idiots or watching people "act"...but this is no act....this guy is totally mentally ill...i hope he keeps doing interviews...this is "not acting" at it's best.

And he's so talented.

I have been a BIG Charlie fan for years but he has gone TOO far. He needs to grow up. I understand he doesn't need to me told what to do offset BUT, this grandiose idea that HE makes the show is ridiculous. The whole ensemble works so well together and Jon Cryer is EVERY BIT as funny and important to the success of the show as Charlie is. Now he is nothing more that a spoiled stuck up actor who deserves to be black balled until he realizes he's NOT worth the money he's already getting, much less more. He needs to look back a few years at David Caruso when he got too big for HIS pants and how it set his career back. He may be cute to a few brainless girls and even MORE brainless guys that think the wild child attitude is cute but he's fast losing his REAL fans.

"I care about him very much," Rosenfield wrote in a brief statement.

This is hilarious. As if anyone actually cares a tiny iota for Hollywood drug addicts, losers, narcissists, degenerates, and mega-phonies, like Sheen.

If you want sincere love in Los Angeles, get a dog.

WHO CARES!!!! This idiot is another burned out, drugged out immoral, over paid Holywood brat that should have been fired long time ago. On what other job would this behaviour be tolerated?? It's not funny, it's not news, it's sickening. With all the bad things going on in world, why is he even given the time of day?? I got a perfect girl friend for him, Lindsay Lohen. That way they can both do each other in and kill 2 birds with one stone. So to speak.

I watched about three minutes of an interview with Charlie last night (mostly on mute). He's 45, but looks alot older -a tribute to very hard partying.

Ahhh....another attempt at character assassination by the so called "unbiased" media. Pardon me if I don't swallow your (the media and all other morons that spew's the media's crap) spoon fed crap. And shame on all of you Kool Aid sipping Troglodyte's that continue to regurgitate the media banter that Charlie is sick and needs help. "Oh look, he isn't acting the way he should....tsk tsk, he must be on drugs...." The closed minded society that we live in today makes me sick. Rock on Charlie, you are not hurting me and for that I thank you and support you. Life is one way, no backing up, no guarantees....live it the way you want and screw all the people that tell you otherwise.

Can I get a "Rock on Charlie" T-shirt?

Charlie is sick--and he has a disease that tells him 'it ain't so... Charlie is very a very sick man; if he cannot find a way to get clean and sober he is going to die. I agree with a previous commentor who stated that 'he should call Robert Downey, Jr and talk.' That statement is true! I thought for sure that Downey wasn't going to make it.

Charlie needs to admit that his life is unmanageable and that he is not in control of anything! Then he needs to turn his life over to a Higher Power and get to work trying to clean up some of this wreckage he's created!

A talented man; with a village enabling his behavior. 'The Show' needs to go bust so that Charlie can 'get' that he is not the most important person in the world.

Include him in your prayers. Such a sad situation, to watch someone self-destruct right before your eyes.

Does this low-life scuzbutt really think we care? The more interviews he does, the sicker he appears. I have not one drop of respect for him. Crawl into a hole, Charlie and pull the hole in after you.

How would any of you know what Charlie Sheen needs?

"A preacher"?
"find Jesus"?
"He is crazy"?

AND THE BEST ONE
"His father to intervene"? (Martin Sheen the liberal whack bag is supposed to know what's good for anybody? And yes, I know all about Martin's so called Christianity and God fearin' lip service that he spouts off from time to time)

Perhaps he (Charlie) is tired of being told (forced) how to act, dress, eat, speak, walk, talk, etc etc etc. And I don't really care if that is the truth or not, I know how I feel when someone forces their opinion down my throat and the subsequent reactions from me would be somewhat non-mainstream to say the least.

And a big KUDOS to all the religious zealots out there that know what's best for everyone, it really didn't take long for all of you to start assembling en mass, and start pounding your tired rhetoric. .....Pardon me if your word isn't really worth the paper its printed on. Lets not shine the spot light on religion, cause we all know how awesome ANY religion has been throughout ALL recorded history. What with your witch burning, crusades, Spanish inquisitions and boy fondling and all. A wise man once said "Religion is like money, they are both great to have but they look equally lousy when you wear them".

Are you experts because of what the media has told you? This is another character assassination attempt by the so called "UNBIASED" (and Soros funded) media.

Shame on all of the kool aid sipping troglodyte's that continue to regurgitate the media's crap. Let the man live the life he wants to live.
"Ohhh Ohhh, he isn't acting in a professional manner....he must be snorting cocaine off a strippers ass" Big friggin deal! So what if he is? Is he hurting you? Are you not entertained? Isn't that his job, entertainment? Continue to elevate entertainers to an unnecessarily high standard and continue to be disappointed, you have only yourselves to blame if you feel let down. As soon as a bigger story comes along we will all be saying Charlie who?

For crying out loud, be a nation of free thinkers, not closed minded, irrational and somewhat infantile conformists.

I say rock on Charlie, as long as you are not hurting me or my family then your life, personal, professional or otherwise is non of my business. I stand behind anyone that gives the cookie cutter, kool-aid swigging, liberal establishment the finger.

Can I get a "Rock on Charlie" T-shirt?
