Uneasy Feeling

I imagine the producers, cast and crew of Two and a Half Men are sitting pretty uneasy this morning after the news of star Charlie Sheen's arrest. I've been there myself. Lost a job over a celebrity who just couldn't keep his $h!t together.

If Sheen had been arrested in LA LA land, I would tell them they have nothing to worry about. Everyone knows that juries in LA find it impossible to believe a celebrity could dream of hurting his wife with a knife (or even bullet).

But Sheen had the misfortune of being arrested in Colorado and could possibly do eight years, most certainly putting an end to the top-rate sitcom and all those jobs. Wait....Colorado??? That's where juries can't believe a celebrity would ever possibly rape a woman, right? Hmmm. On second thought, maybe they don't have a thing to worry about at all.

The whole Charlie Sheen affair makes me quesy. I'm thankful my job doesn't hinge on unhinged celebs--just unhinged journalists...
Happy new year!

I think that most celebrities only care about themselves-they've been sucked up to so much that they believe they can do whatever they want and get away with it. It's sad that juries are star-struck and let them get away with so much.

That being said, I doubt that Charlie will have to do much more than probation, he can afford lawyers who can get him off with a slap on the wrist. Besides, if it happened in LA, judging from past examples, it's unlikely he'd spend more than 24 hours in jail.

Words - Teehee! I've known a few of those too! ;-)

Janet, He will be tried in Colorado.

I knew he'd be tried in Colorado-if there's a trial, that is. His lawyers could make it go away.
