Every time I cover Charlie Sheen, I think of what a horrible excuse for a human being he is. He had unprotected sex with multiple partners without informing them of his HIV positive status, a felony for which he’s under investigation (we know how that’s going to go), he’s a known abuser who threatens his own daughters with death and physically abuses his partners, he spends money on prostitutes, drugs, and payoffs to the people he harmed while cutting child support to his children’s mothers. I could go on. He’s a disgusting POS who should not be getting interviews on major outlets like he’s some kind of ambassador for people living with HIV. Still he keeps getting chances and the press gives him positive coverage. The latest on Charlie is that he wants a reality show.
The Emmy-nominated actor, 50, is shopping a reality show about living with the virus and “his life in general,” a source exclusively reveals in the latest issue of Us Weekly. “He’s met with various producers. He’d really open up and allow the cameras inside his world…”
The father of five wants a fresh start at work and at home. After years of bad blood with ex-wife Denise Richards (in January, the actress filed a lawsuit against Sheen, claiming he threatened her and their kids), he spent the 4th of July watching fireworks with her and their daughters Sam, 12, and Lola, 11.
“They’re on good terms,” shares a second insider, who is close to the former reality star, 45.
For his part, Sheen, who also has daughter Cassandra, 31 (with ex Paula Profit), and sons Bob and Max, both 7 (with ex-wife Brooke Mueller), is trying to turn his image around.
Last month, he told Piers Morgan he gets “the future of HIV treatment” (a drug called Pro 140). The actor also noted last year in an open letter for the Today show that his viral load was “undetectable.”
“Like every other challenge in my life, again, I was victorious and kicking this disease’s ass,” he wrote. “I wish my story had ended there. Unfortunately, for my family and myself, it had only just begun.”
And if Sheen gets his wish, he’ll take viewers along on his journey.
No US, I know this is an exclusive and props for getting these quotes, but it is not “bad blood” with Denise Richards. Again, he threatened to kill their youngest daughter and called her a ‘f-ing pig whore.’ He kicked Denise and their two daughters out of the home in his neighborhood which he convinced them to move into, changed the locks and then trashed and stole their things. All of this is public record but these new stories get run like Charlie is just some ex-TV star who happened to get HIV. Poor Charlie, spreading HIV to countless unknowing partners, emotionally and physically abusing everyone he’s close to and then smiling and acting normal in interviews. He just deserves another chance. Let’s give him a reality show.
