Remember Charlie Sheen’s meltdown in 2011?
The one where he abused Two and a Half Men creator and executive producer, Chuck Lorre?
He even challenged him to a fight at one point even though they were friends.
Things got so ugly CBS shut down production of the show.
Next thing Charlie knows he’s out of a job and looking for ways to raise cash.
Next came the strange interviews. The bizarre comedy tour that made it look like he’d totally lost his mind.
Then all of a sudden things cooled a bit in Sheen’s world. He has a new job now.
And he’s actually given a couple of reasonably sane interviews lately.
Several days ago, he sat down with Katie Couric and attempted to explain his bizarre 2011 behavior…
“I think I was doing too much testosterone cream and I think it metabolized into a steroid.
I think it was a bit of a roid rage. That’s the only thing I can point to to explain it.
There was no booze, no pain pills. Seriously there was nothing, there was no street drugs.”
This all makes perfect sense to me now because testosterone cream in large amounts will do some nasty things to a man…
One day you’re showing up for work, earning a cool $1.8 million per episode.
And the next, you’re melting like an ice cube on hot pavement. On national television.
If you’re Charlie Sheen, that is.
His obnoxious behavior reeks of testosterone abuse. It’s was hostile. Aggressive. And came out of nowhere.
Actually, it didn’t come out of nowhere. It came out of his doctors hand. The day he handed him the prescription.
Which leaves you scratching your head…
We already know that Charlie has some addictive tendencies based on his past behavior.
So couldn’t the doctor have figured that out giving him free reign with the juice wasn’t such a good idea?
I mean, you gotta know a guy like Charlie is probably going to push the envelope a bit.
“Instead of one pump , I think I’ll try 3 tonight and see what happens”.
What happens is, you call your good friend. Abuse him. And lose one of the cushiest jobs on television.
Then you go on to destroy your life in front of the entire world.
I have a feeling Charlie has learned a powerful lesson about the perils of artificial testosterone replacement.
But I’m certain his doctor hasn’t.
Which explains why you need to be prepared every single time you walk through his door.
Because he’s going to push his junk on you hard. And you need to be strong enough to walk away.
Or better yet, why don’t you play a little offense and avoid that appointment all together.
