Charlie Sheen Heads To Haiti As Sirius XM Devotes 24 Hour Radio Station To His Antics
All Sheenisms. All the Time. Now that’s what we call “winning!”
On Saturday, Sirius XM introduced the world’s first 24-hour satellite radio station dedicated to the world’s new most popular Tweeter: troubled Hollywood actor Charlie Sheen Tiger Blood Radio, which debuted this morning at 6 AM ET, will run through 6 AM Sunday on Sirius Channel 108 and XM channel 139.
“Tiger Blood Radio” will “take listeners behind the headlines, exploring the media frenzy/media reaction, as well as the medical, psychological, psychiatric and pop-culture and celebrity angles. Additionally, through a recap of news coverage, it will offer a timeline of recent events,” Sirius bosses said in a statement Friday.
Sheen has dominated the headlines since Warner Bros. and CBS halted production on his smash sitcom — Two and a Half Men — after his repeated verbal attacks on its producer, Chuck Lorre. The admitted crack addict has used the downtime to chat up reporters in a hist of interviews that featured banter about his impending divorce, the custody battle over his twin sons, and life with his two lovers — “The Goddesses.”
We’re still trying to figure out why Charlie’s still being allowed to walk the streets without medication. Despite this, somehow the kook’s landed a passport and is headed to the devastated Caribbean nation of Haiti. At the urging of pal Sean Penn (best known these days as Scarlett Johansson’s Penis Supplier), Charlie has agreed to join the relief efforts that have been going on since the impoverished country was slammed with an earthquake in Jan. 2010.
“I’m excited as hell because, you know, if I can bring the attention of the world down there, then clearly this tsunami keeps cresting,” Sheen told Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush Friday.
Penn — who spends most of his time lending a hand to the rehabilitation of Haiti — thinks embattled Sheen could do a lot of good there — for himself and the people of the land.
“I think his energies, intelligence and passion could be both of service and servicing to him, as it is to all who are touched by the struggle of the Haitian people,” the Oscar winner said in a statement.
“Charlie is one of the very few public people who cannot be accused of using the media to his own benefit. I would very much like to show my old friend the world of needs on the ground in Haiti, and introduce him and his tremendous wit to our hard-working Haitian staff.”
