Charlie Sheen really likes calling into radio shows. The troubled TV star took to the air waves once again, this time calling into syndicated radio show "The Alex Jones Show" to slam "Two and a Half Men" creator Chuck Lorre in a rambling, erratic interview.
Sheen ripped into Lorre, saying that he must have embarrassed him "in front of his children and the world by healing at a pace that his un-evolved mind cannot process." But Sheen didn't stop there went on to call Lorre a "turd" and a "clown" and later used an anti-semitic term while referring to Lorre's name. Sheen said he is eager to get back to work but has now seemingly escalated a very public battle with the producers the hit comedy.
Sheen was even more outrageous than in his recent series of radio interviews since announcing he was entering rehab, claiming he is "100 percent" clean. "Here is your first pee test," he said to Alex Jones, the "next one goes in your mouth. No, you wont get high." In the live interview Sheen also said he has no time for Alcoholic's Anonymous, saying "I am special and I will never be one of you" and referred to the group as a "bootleg cult" with a success rate of 5 precent. He went on to say "I have a disease? bulls**t! I cured it ... with my mind."
The interview comes as the actor left Los Angeles to spend some time in the Bahamas with his ex-wife, Brooke Mueller and his new girlfriend. In the the interview Sheen says Mueller left the vacation early and wished her well in her travels, sarcastically adding that his ex-wife is "going to need it, badly."
Earlier this week Sheen's father, actor Martin Sheen, broke his silence about his troubled son. "With prayer, we lift him up and we ask for everyone who cares about him to lift him up," Martin Sheen said Tuesday night at a movie premiere in London.
"If he had cancer, how would we treat him, you know?" Martin Sheen, 70, told Sky News. "... Addiction is a form of cancer, and you have to have an equal measure of concern and love, and lift them up, and that's what we do for him."
But Charlie Sheen, 45, says he's doing just fine. Indeed, amid the latest scandal, he said in another interview with the "Dan Patrick Show" last week that he has found love all over again.
When the radio host asked Sheen whether he was in love, Sheen said, "Eh, 100 percent. What's not to love ... you got to see this one."
"Well, you won't tell me who she is," Patrick replied.
"Oh, I'm sure the world will know soon enough," Sheen said.
Cameras have caught Sheen kissing his new mystery woman. He was seen with the same woman on a yacht Tuesday night. Her name has yet to be released.
Charlie Sheen told "Good Morning America" that his new love is not a porn star or actress, and that the couple met through a mutual friend at a party.
The mystery woman told "GMA," which agreed not to reveal her name, that she is a graphic designer. Sheen says he rescued her in a way and trusts her, that she's the only one who understands him.
When his new girlfriend was asked if Sheen was sober, she said, "We don't use the word 'sober' in this house, we use 'clean,' and he is clean.'"
Sheen says he is 100 percent sober, he has things in check and is enjoying every moment, "I have 'mondo' gratitude for this life. Life is a fantasy."
Charlie Sheen Ready to Work
Sheen's hit CBS show is on hiatus. Still, the show's ratings are strong; even repeat episodes continue to bring in millions of viewers.
When Sheen was asked if he's ready to go back to work, he said, "I've been ready for like a year."
Despite Sheen's antics and all the negative headlines, his father said he hopes to one day share the screen again with his son.
"That would be another miracle," Martin Sheen said. "And we look forward to that so much so."
