Roseanne Diagnoses Charlie Sheen, Rightly Accuses Chuck Lorre of Writing Soul-Crushing Comedy
If there's anyone who knows what it's like to butt heads with Two and a Half Men co-creator Chuck Lorre, it's Roseanne Barr. The comedic actress worked with Lorre for two years on her self-titled ABC series before firing Lorre, a writer and producer at the time, for alleged alcohol problems. And now, in a post titled "charlie sheen makes me look sane," Barr has taken to her blog to sound off Sheen, his (and her) longtime nemesis Lorre, and Two and a Half Men.
Roseanne posted the following rant to her blog RoseanneWorld.com this morning and surprisingly (or unsurprisingly?) it is full of well-wishing, ill-wishing and advice.
this thread is for charlie sheen talk and mental illness talk. Charlie is not on drugs, though he can get them from the porn star goddesses that come and go, but his urine shows clean--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. Go to Greece, Paris, China, look at great art and lay low. you got fired, dude. anybody can do your job, really. other guys are funny and not repulsive to intelligent women, though those sh*t chuck lorre lines could choke a f*cking horse, and render any actor who recites them stone cold soul dead. No grown man could really look himself in the mirror knowing that he delivers sh*t jokes and adolescent sniggering over breasts and women's body parts lines to the Tea partier types who are big fans of Chuck's hilarious hijinx. I fired Chuck Lorre for being a big drunk on my show, and he went on to become one of tv's most successful writers (about dick jokes). Maybe Charlie can start producing porn movies now!!
To recap, Roseanne diagnoses Sheen as a manic depressive, diagnoses Lorre as a successful dick joke writer who shills for a Tea Party audience, and warns any actor in a Lorre-produced comedy that his/her soul will die if he/she does not escape immediately. Melissa McCarthy, I think that last part is directed at you.
