We're not sure that a woman who made a great portion of her living by providing this mess with hookers has any business defending him, but whatever. We'll see what she has to say.
Former Hollywood Madam Heidi Fleiss is speaking out on behalf of Charlie Sheen, and thinks that his hard-pAArtying, wife-beating, and hooker-happy behavior is just a-okay, and people need to lay off - because apparently, she doesn't think that he's an addict, like Lindsay Lohan!
"Look, people need to leave Charlie the fuck alone. Do they really expect him to go to church when he is not working? He is the highest paid actor on television — on a really popular show — and he always delivers by turning up on time and putting in great performances, and that's all that matters. There is no comparison with Lindsay Lohan because she is not functional and is an addict with a sickness - I should know because I've been to rehab several times too. It's not as if we see Charlie smoking a crack pipe or anything, the guy just loves to party, and people just don't seem to want to accept that. Also, Charlie is making a lot more money than Lindsay and he should be allowed to spend it whatever way he sees fit. She's the one that has to try and get her career and life back on track. He's doing fine. Really - Charlie Sheen with hookers? It's not a real surprise, is it? Who's fooling who here?!"
We're gonna sit with this one for a second before we decide exactly how we'd like to respond.
…aaaaaand we're off:
All right, listen, just because someone has the monetary means to act however the hell he wants - and with ZERO regard for others, might we add - does NOT make it okay.
And we're not sure what your exact definition of the word 'functional' is, because we're pretty sure that locking a hooker in a bathroom and having a cocaine-fueled meltdown in a hotel room while your ex-wife and CHILDREN are down the hall doesn't fit anywhere into that!
Nor does threatening your OTHER ex-wife with a knife, choosing to ignore your call time so you can run around Vegas at a porn convention without letting the bosses of your show - who provide you with $1.8 million per episode - know where you are and why you won't be where you're supposed to be!
But we digress.
Don't get it twisted, bb.
Just because his behavior is consistently ridiculous does not make him functional or not an addict. It just makes him sad.
