A lot has gone on in Charlie Sheen’s world over the weekend.
First off, three of his children had birthday parties, which he missed.
His twin sons, Bob and Max, had a birthday bash thrown by estranged wife Brooke Mueller and co-hosted by Kathy Hilton (Paris Hilton’s mom). The party boasted a bounce house and lots of balloons.
Mueller was having a nice time with the focus on her children rather than the drama surrounding Sheen’s life.
Sheen’s daughter with ex-wife Denise Richards also had a birthday party this weekend. She turned seven last week and had a gymnastics party.
Charlie did not attend either gathering.
Meanwhile, tickets for two Charlie Sheen LIVE: The Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option shows sold out within 18 minutes. One dollar from every ticket sold went to the Red Cross the help the tsunami victims in Japan.
The shows are set for Detroit on April 2 and Chicago on April 3. More performances and location are likely to be announced this week.
It seems that scalpers helped in the sellout, as Stubhub listed 1,412 seats available for the Detroit venue, and more were up on Craigslist. The number suggests that more than a quarter of the tickets sold went to scalpers. Nearly the same holds true for Chicago, as 1,243 tickets are available at Stubhub, nearly a third of the venue’s capacity.
Besides selling tickets, Sheen is also selling merchandise.
He began selling official t-shirts from his website, CharlieSheen.com, which was launched Friday. Shirts feature phrases such as “Duh, Winning,” “I’m an FA-18 Bro,” and “You’re Either in Sheen’s Korner or You’re With the Trolls.” You can get your own memento of the craziness for just $19.95.
Finally, Alec Baldwin wrote a blog article for the Huffington Post explaining why Sheen will lose his lawsuit and career. He also told Sheen to beg for his job back.
“You can’t win. Really. You can’t. When executives at studios and networks move up to the highest ranks, they are given a book… ‘How to Handle Actors.’ And one principle held dear in that book is that no actor is greater than the show itself when the show is a hit. You know what you should do? Take a nap. Get a shower. Call Chuck. Go on Letterman and make an apology. Write a huge check to the B’Nai Brith. And then beg for your job back.”
Baldwin continues to advise Sheen to “sober up.” If he wants to really make CBS and all the execs angry, he will ask America for forgiveness, which will essentially make CBS and Warner Bros. take him back.
His final piece of advice for Sheen: “P.S… Buy Cryer a really nice car.”
Well of course Charlie did not take too kindly to that.
“Charlie believes no one is smarter than he is,” says a friend. “He doesn’t ask or take advice from anyone. If he has a problem then he will solve it himself. He’s certainly not going to take any advice from Alec. As far as Charlie is concerned, Alec should shut up, sit down, and keep eating.”
