Actress urges “Two and a Half Men” actor to “take a break” while recalling bad experience with Sheen and her own former producer
Roseanne Barr is on Teem Sheen. Or, at least, she's not on Team Lorre.
The "Roseanne" actress took to her "Roseanne World" blog on Monday to reflect on the ongoing battle between newly axed "Two and a Half Men" actor Charlie Sheen and his former producer/current arch-nemesis, Chuck Lorre. In the post, titled "Charlie Sheen Makes Me Look Sane," Barr defends Sheen's recent behavior — up to a point — while revealing the bad blood that passed between herself and Lorre when he served as a producer and writer on her sitcom "Roseanne" in the early 1990s.
Barr starts off her online reflection by giving Sheen the benefit of the doubt on his sobriety, writing, "Charlie is not on drugs, though he can get them from the porn star goddesses that come and go, but his urine shows clean — I think Charlie is in a manic high, and is unable to get any drugs to bring him down anymore — his tiger blood statement is from that "eye of the tiger" focus that manics have."
Barr stops short of giving Sheen a total pass, however. Urging the actor to "take a break" and "lay low," the comedienne went on to note that "anybody can do your job, really" — and perhaps even better than he does. Barr wrote, "Other guys are funny and not repulsive to intelligent women, though those s— Chuck Lorre lines could choke a f—ing horse, and render any actor who recites them stone cold soul dead."
Shifting her attention to Lorre, Barr said, "I fired Chuck Lorre for being a big drunk on my show, and he went on to become one of tv's most successful writers (about d— jokes). Maybe Charlie can start producing porn movies now!!!"
Presumably, after he takes a much-needed breather.
