I'm not sure when the MTV Movie Awards started creating new categories each year but this year's award for New Cult Film (that didn't even have nominees) was clearly just an excuse to give Charlie Sheen something to do. Why he had to be involved remains a mystery to me.
There's no getting around it: Charlie Sheen is coming back to television.
Not to be outdone by Jason Russell's public display yesterday, Charlie Sheen's former "goddess" Bree Olson has surfaced with this bizarre but perhaps well-intentioned video response to the Kony 2012 movement. The short film shows Olson writhing in various states of undress, interspersed with images of Joseph Kony and his victims. Let her explain.
Sigmund Freud theorized that humans have a death drive, a latent desire for self-destruction. In a media ecosystem rife with celebity death pictures, celebrity death bets, Celebrity Rehab, I'd say we have a culture-wide "death drive," too. The reaction to Whitney Houston's death two weeks ago, reported the day before the Grammys, underscored our obsession with such celebrity tragedies. What would be the Oscars' version of that particular fallout?
Kim Kardashian is getting divorced after only 72 days. That's only two and a half months. Apparently celebrities are especially susceptible to being married for very short periods of time. Here are some that were so short they make Kim's look long, and some that lasted a bit longer and make Kim's look short, sort of like when she'd stand next to her future ex, Kris Humphries.
Recently we stopped by a Halloween superstore in search of some new work clothes (dressing up in costumes helps stave off writer's block), and noticed amidst the racks of Slutty Thises and Slutty Thats a pile of rubber Charlie Sheen masks for sale. It didn't surprise us that someone would want to dress up as this year's ultimate Hollywood meltdown and fright show, given the "Boo!! Scary!!" angle of the holiday—but little did we know that "Charlie Sheen" would actually win this year's costume popularity contest.
Tonight's Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen featured jokes so offensive we almost felt guilty laughing at them, all told rapid-fire in one bit after another. That's probably why Sheen's more subdued remarks at the end balanced out the otherwise crazy 90 minutes.
Just like the weekend, the 63rd Primetime Emmys are history. This year's telecast was hosted by Glee's Jane Lynch and aired live on Fox from the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles. Despite Alec Baldwin's last-minute pullout, pretty much every small screen star showed up to celebrate television's biggest night.
We haven't seen much of Charlie Sheen since earlier this year—when we didn't see much that wasn't Charlie Sheen—but the former Two and a Half Men star stopped by The Tonight Show on Thursday ahead of next Monday's airing of his Comedy Central roast.
