With a positive attitude and a positive diagnosis, the only person more happy than Matt Lauer to hear about Charlie Sheen was Bill Cosby. The spotlight has changed, Jell-O boy, put your ruffies down and step aside.

Charlie appeared on the Today Show with Matt Lauer to spread the word that the stigma will end and the shame is now over as he is positive that he is HIV positive. HIV is not a death sentence but it is a product of a lifestyle that Sheen has not been ashamed to admit to.

  1. He fraternizes with prostitutes.
  2. He has unprotected sex sometimes with more than one person at a time.
  3. He abuses drugs and alcohol.

Let’s be clear, Charlie, you are not the victim here. It really sucks that you have HIV and I don’t wish that on you or anyone, I really don’t. You have spread not only your seed, but also your money to hide your little secret. You tell us that these extortionists (prostitutes) took you for $10 million or more. At upwards to $35,000 a pop when you would invite them to party, that is less than a year’s worth of prostitutes. I say you got off easy but that would be a bad euphemism, and really unlike me.

I have to admit that your wordsmithing is divine. This paragraph alone makes you Pulitzer worthy. Locked in a vacuum of fear, I chose to allow their threats and skullduggery to vastly deplete future assets from my children, while my “secret” sat entombed in their hives of folly.” But Charlie, despite your panache with the pen, I can not understand how you feel you have been victimized. Sorry, did I stutter?

Guess what, Tiger Blood? Maybe your choice in friends could save you some money. Why don’t you start there and then we might feel for you.

You say in your open letter that “It was a suicide run. Problem was, I’d forgotten that I’m too tough for such a cowardly departure.” Are we to believe you had forgotten you are too tough to be a coward for the last 4 years but you had never in your “abysmal decent into profound substance abuse and fathomless drinking” forgot a dose of your meds or forgot to tell a hooker that you were positive? 

Maybe it slipped your mind to mention the type of condoms you prefer are only good for preventing pregnancy and not for disease prevention. That’s right, lambskin condoms are not the preferred choice of those with any communicable disease but they are your preferred choice. #Losing. Or, did you forget to tell your Goddesses in 2011 that you were HIV positive while strapping on a sheep’s intestine instead of good old american latex and choosing nothing at all during menstruation? Maybe you owe Bree Olson a call because she slept with you for a year and you forgot to mention your HIV status to her. Even porn stars deserve respect Charlie. Let me guess, you were Chicken Dinner

Finally, I think your medical knowledge is unfit for network television…or did you play a doctor on TV that I have forgotten? Are you to tell us, conclusively mind you, that the two women you slept with under the supervision of your doctor willingly had unprotected sex with you after your diagnosis? Was it worth it to them? Was it worth it to you? Did you offer them a Jell-O shooter first, Charlie? 

Let’s be clear, you are not a coward for having HIV, that just sucks and it is too bad you have to shout it to the world to get out of your personal hell. But, you are a coward for paying off prostitutes for secrets, playing the victim and not being clear with your partners and needing unprotected sex with two separate women after your diagnosis. Shame on you.

In 2011 you called the Two and a Half Men’s producer a “contaminated little maggot”. That just sounds like the pot calling the kettle Charlie and in your own words, karmic.

Love and Peace.

  1. Wow. I would have thought his HIV-positive status would have taken Sheen down a peg or two, and if that didn’t I would have thought having been blackmailed by some of his former partners and finally coming clean about it would too, but reading his statement he seems just as arrogant as ever.
    So thank you for this major takedown. I doubt it’ll do any good–most likely it’ll bounce off his tiger blood–but it’s like you’re offering an antidote to his poison pen.
    Yeah, I’m gonna stick with “pen” even though it feels like I’m cutting the word short.

  2. Do you think anyone was surprised by Charlie’s diagnosis? I know I wasn’t, and I’m not even privy to ALL the high risk shenanigans he partook. Even though he didn’t disclose, the partners he’s had would have to know they’re taking at risk. Right?? And in no way am I defending Charlie’s inaction, I’m just thinking everyone involved would have to know they were/are practicing risky behavior. Sad all the way around really.

    It took me two tries to ‘get’ the pen reference and now I can’t stop laughing. Christopher, there is no taking you down.

    But Charlie is such good fodder it is hard to dislike him. I can’t respect him, but he does make me laugh.

  5. I’m so behind the times I had no idea he was HIV +ve And this post was like reading People magazine only it wasn’t long enough. Apparently I’m all about the celebrity gossip. Got anything on the Kardashians? Kanye? How ’bout Eminem?
