This is not a rerun.
“It’s amazing how much Charlie parties but he’s still able to go to work and perform,” a source told Radar. “The show tapes multiple episodes at a time and Charlie is somehow able to still deliver his best.
“It’s almost impossible to understand when you realize how hard he parties.”
As Radar reported exclusively, Sheen is back using drugs on a daily basis, with an insider revealing: “For at least the last eight months or so Charlie has been having a quarter to half an ounce of cocaine delivered to him every single day and was spending nearly $2,000 a day on drugs. Sometimes he’d even get two to three quarters of cocaine in one day.”
It was that type of drug consumption that led to his infamous showdown with the show’s execs and Lorre, the creator of Two and a Half Men. That disaster culminated in Sheen being fired, suing, and settling for a considerable sum of money (#winning!).
Now, however, Sheen is getting no static from FX, his new network.
“He shows up, he does his job, he’s given them a hit show,” the source said. “The ratings triggered a clause that picked up the show for another 90 episodes.”
Charlie’s personal life though is more complicated. His twin sons with Brooke Mueller, Max and Bob, have been spending a lot of time with his ex wife Denise Richards. (Mueller has been through rehab several times.)
“Charlie still has the dream of having a ‘porn family’ and still is hanging out with porn stars in his own home,” the source said.
“And when he’s not with the porn stars, he’s often with one or both of his exes.
“It’s the strangest situation in Hollywood.”
