Welcome to Case of the Mondays, a weekly post that takes a look around Hollywood to see who's having the worst day.
C'mon, did we really expect this to actually work? It wasn't that long ago when Charlie Sheen
took the world by storm with his complete disregard for anything resembling normal human behavior, including (but not limited to):
- Getting fired from Two and a Half Men
- Getting arrested for trashing a hotel room and locking a hooker in the closet
- Shacking up with at least three different porn-star girlfriends at the same time
- Admitting to abusing an assortment of illegal drugs
Now, as his time at the top of Hollywood's #1 Most Popular Idiot List begins to fade, Sheen has launched the next step in his quest toward complete career destruction by winging a national tour. The actor quickly found out that he'd have to do a little more than throw catchphrase sound bytes at auditoriums packed with thousands of people who paid top dollar when his tour opened up in Detroit over the weekend. Just what would a national tour featuring Charlie Sheen in all his messed-up glory actually look like? If you guessed "sh*t," then good on you.
Yup, this weekend's Detroit show -- which came complete with random Charlie Sheen speeches and audience participation (in the form of walk-outs and loud booing
) -- was just the beginning of what looks to be a pretty embarrassing last ditch effort to help his "winning" shtick remain relevant. Sheen bombed big time, according to reports
, though word out of the Chicago show was that he was a little more prepared, looking to the talk-show format as a means of being a little more entertaining.
Needless to say, the value of tickets for Sheen's remaining shows has tanked (to about $24, we're told), and the only people "winning" out now are those networks who declined to air his ridiculous show on television, sparing the rest of us from more of Sheen's brain-dead ideas.
