Charlie's World

     Oh Charlie Sheen.  I think that just maybe, you might be the coolest guy's guy in the history of ever.  Let's look at the facts.  First of all, he bought tickets for an entire section of Angel's Stadium because he and his buddy wanted to catch a home run ball.  That's awesome.  I would do that in a heartbeat.  It was especially cool that he looked like a total fool standing out there and he did it anyway.  And I sort of feel bad that he didn't catch a ball.  But whatever.  He did it and that's cool.  He also has a tendency to drive sweet cars, hang around with adult film actresses, makes $2 million for each episode of his TV show, and all sorts of other things that only a guy would think was cool.  He even hung out with Michael Jordan in that commercial.  But what I love that is making him cool right now is what came out when he opened his mouth to address the incident that happened in New York City a couple of weeks ago.
     For those of you who don't know, the NYPD were called to Sheen's room at the ultra ritzy Plaza Hotel and found a naked, drunk, and irate Charlie Sheen in a completely trashed hotel room.  He was upset because he claimed that 22-year old (Sheen is 45 by the way) Christina Walsh, the porn star that he had in his room with him, stole a $150,000 watch from him.  He was taken to a friendly local hospital, supposedly because he was suffering from a reaction to an allergy medication, not because he was drunk, and he was accompanied by his second wife, Denise Richards when he went for medical treatment.  Oh yeah, we should probably mention that he is married to his third wife, Brooke Mueller, from whom he filed for divorce four days after the incident.
     Haha.  What a guy.  Partying with porn stars, watches that cost more than any house I will ever own, more wives than you can shake a stick at, and kids with all of them.  But I love what he had to say when he finally opened up about the incident.  He told Extra "If a guy has one bad night, everybody goes insane and panics. I'm not panicking, everything's good."  Awesome!  I couldn't agree more.  People have bad days, people let it snap from time to time.  Granted, when you have a history like Charlie Sheen's, and you are a super famous actor, you have to expect a slightly different set of consequences, but he still has a point.  Guy had a crazy night, got a little drunk, and got a little worked up.  It happens all the time, let's not get all worried about it.  Walsh plans a lawsuit because she claims that she was afraid for her life, but let me just say this: Before October 26, very few people knew who Christina Walsh was, and if it was anybody un-famous who did this with her in the room she wouldn't have even batted an eyelash.  So there.
     You want to know what is even better?  Charlie has a reasonable view on life, wealth, and celebrity.  When asked about the watch that apparently started the whole incident, he said "The way I look at it, if you have expensive tastes, you gotta be prepared for expensive losses."  Wow.  Now doesn't that sound like common sense.  I was so refreshed to hear him say that.  Now, $150,000 is no small sum of money no matter how you look at it, but it probably hurts him a lot less than it would hurt, oh, say you or I.  SO he has a pretty good handle on how things work.  He isn't one of those people who buys a Ferrari and then complains about how much it costs to replace the bumper.
      So good for you Charlie.  I wish you the best.  I am not going to get into your divorce, other than to maybe advise you that your third marriage has not failed, and you seem to like porn stars a lot, so maybe you shouldn't be getting married a fourth time.  Just seems like common sense.  And you have proved to me that you are a common sense kind of guy.
