Charlie Sheen is an idiot. First he does enough coke to kill a village, then he tarnishes his own image by creating a home haven of porn stars, then he has the gull to actually sue CBS, Warner Bros. and Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre for $100 million, claiming wrongful termination after he had to abandon the show to undergo rehab treatments.
On March 7 Warner Bros. issued a statement about Sheen’s firing:
“After careful consideration, Warner Bros. Television has terminated Charlie Sheen’s services on ‘Two and a Half Men’ effective immediately.”
To which Sheen responded with:
“This is very good news. They continue to be in breach, like so many whales. It is a big day of gladness at the Sober Valley Lodge because now I can take all of the bazillions, never have to look at whatshis[expletive] again and I never have to put on those silly shirts for as long as this warlock exists in the terrestrial dimension.
In his lawsuit Sheen is stating that since he wasn’t fired through all his other transgressions in the past, the studio had no reason to fire him this time around.

Adam Jasinski, a former winner on the CBS television series Big Brother has been sentenced to 4 years in federal prison. Jasinski was found guilty of using prize money from the show to mastermind and fund a prescription drug ring.
You may recall that Jasinski was busted in 2009 when he attempted to sell 2,000 oxycodone pills to a government informant.
Rather than going through a lengthy court battle, Jasinski this week plead guilty on drug possession charges with intention to distribute, he also plead guilty for failure to file a 2008 tax return, the same year in which he won his $500,000 Big Brother prize.

Hookers, domestic battery, drunken hotel binges with fits of anger, it should come as a surprise that CBS execs are said to be at a “high level of concern” over the recent troubles caused by Charlie Sheen.
The Two And A Half Men star has been making headlines since he threatened to kill his then wife Brooke Mueller during Christmas day 2009 at their Aspen, Colorado home. Sheen then spent parts of 2010 in rehab, while police were called to his hotel room in late 2010 where he was found passed out drunk and naked with hooker/pornstar Capri Anderson hiding in his suites closet, an encounter that later led to charges being filed against Sheen.
Sheen is currently the second highest paid actor on TV and a crucial part of his hit TV show. At one point Sheen’s antics were brushed out of the spotlight, as hookers and boozing fit his characters persona, however President of Entertainment for CBS Nini Tassler decided to answer questions at this weeks Television Critics Association Winter 2011 Session.

Shh. Don’t Tell Steve is a Twitter account with just over 15,000 followers at the time of this post, hardly a ShitMyDadSays success, but that hasn’t stopped CBS from developing a show around the Twitter account.
Network execs are busy developing the show which include quotes from a guy who follows the antics of his roommate. Such quotes as “Steve loudly challenging people to a drinking contest…Nobody biting, so he’s just doing shots and declaring himself the winner.”
