Sheen to tell his side of the story
Clear your calendar early this week — that is, if you care about the whole Charlie Sheen drug/alcohol/porn star/anger management situation.
The troubled actor — who has been running his mouth on the radio recently, slamming “Two and a Half Men” and its show’s creator, Chuck Lorre — is giving his first TV interview today on NBC’s the “Today” show, followed by ABC’s “20/20” tomorrow. Portions of the ABC interview are slated to run on “Good Morning America” today and tomorrow.
ABC released a portion of the interview, in which a crazed-looking Sheen talks a mile a minute.
“I have one speed, I have one gear — go,” said Sheen, who claimed to be clean and sober. “And I dare you to keep up with me.”
“I am on a drug — it’s called Charlie Sheen,” the actor added.
CBS recently suspended production on Sheen’s hit show after the star went on an insult-fileld radio rant — which some have called anti-Semitic — against Lorre.
At the time, Sheen was holed up in the Bahamas with porn star Bree Olson, gal pal Natalie Kenly and estranged wife Brooke Mueller.
