Roseanne Barr says Charlie Sheen is 'winning' and takes a swipe at Chuck Lorre
Roseanne Barr took to her blog to talk about Charlie Sheen and his battle with CBS and Warner Bros. Television over the actor's recent antics and firing from "Two and a Half Men."
"Charlie is not on drugs, though he can get them from the porn star goddesses that come and go, but his urine shows clean," Barr says in a post with several expletives titled "charlie sheen makes me look sane." She adds, "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. Manics can really work hard and play hard at the same time, until they hit a wall, and then they are in bed and depressed for a long time, so they start taking drugs again to get energy to work. Charlie, take a break dude."
In another post written on Tuesday called "charlie sheen is winning i have decided," Barr writes about the actor's recent firing, "He is off two and a half men, and will hopefully get the money they owe him. No longer will he have to be publicly hated derided and humiliated by intelligent women, and perhaps one might befriend him, which would so change his life."
"After careful consideration, Warner Bros. Television has terminated Charlie Sheen's services on "Two and a Half Men" effective immediately," the production company said in a statement on Monday, saying in a legal letter that the actor "appears to be very ill."
Production on "Two and a Half Men," which tells of the life of a party-loving bachelor who lives with his brother and nephew, was suspended in January after Sheen, the highest-paid star on television, began treatment for drug and alcohol addiction. Filming on the show was halted in late February after he ranted against Lorre in a radio interview.
Meanwhile, Barr also took jabs at "Two and a Half Men" co-creator Chuck Lorre, who worked as a supervising producer on Barr's sitcom "Roseanne" which ran from 1988 to 1997.
"I fired Chuck Lorre for being a big drunk on my show," Barr wrote in one post.
"I was going to guest on 2 and a half men once, but when i got the script, it was putrid, so they got cam manheim to do it," she claimed in another. She added, "Chuck got pissed off at me for refusing to be part of his brilliance, and insulted me in the nyt, saying that I 'beat the wit out of him.'"
Barr is gearing up for a new Lifetime reality series, set to debut sometime in 2011, following her life on macadamia nut farm in Hawaii.
In a statement to Entertainment Weekly in February, Nancy Dubuc, Lifetime president said, "Roseanne Barr is an undeniable force of nature and the idea of following her in this unique premise excited us from the get-go. Roseanne is funny and brutally-honest, and our audience will relate to her decision to go on this adventure and create an entirely new life for herself."
