I'm sure you've noticed the spectacle Charlie Sheen has been making of himself. He's displayed his children and goddesses all over the Today Show and other programs. He's insulted his boss, gotten himself fired, had his children taken away, and now he's parading across the country in a one man show, which is being received with poor reviews. In fact, he's been booed off stage a few times, and People calls it an epic fail in their April 3rd article.
Does he think he's being clever? Does he think the public will come around to his side after putting on such an absurd display of lousy behavior and weak decision-making skills? Does he really think he will "win?" I look at this whole fiasco and think, "Well, there's an example of what I don't want to be like." Charlie's certainly an anti-mentor and not anyone I'd want any career advice or career guidance from. Were I to encounter him, I think I'd just run as fast as possible in the opposite direction.
I think all these things in judgment and shock and horror, but then I stop to think, "Maybe this is the biggest scheme his character from Two and a Half Men ever played." The conspiracy theorist in me believes they could all be in cahoots to win the final episode and series finale of Two and a Half Men the biggest ratings in history. This could all be an elaborate PR scheme, to win endless media attention and free publicity for the finale of a lifetime.
Is it possible that Charlie is thinking that he'll have the last laugh for pulling the wool over America's eyes? What do you think?
