Roseanne Barr defends Charlie Sheen; takes jabs at Chuck Lorre, 'Two and a Half Men' writing

Roseanne-BarrImage Credit: Dr. Billy Ingram/WireImage.comEveryone has an opinion on Charlie Sheen and his troubles these days, and now one of the most vocal women in Hollywood has taken to her blog to give her two cents in a series of fiery blog posts that defend Sheen’s antics and take aim at Chuck Lorre, a former writer/producer on Roseanne.

It all started yesterday, after Roseanne Barr published a rambling blog post about Sheen and Lorre on her website, titled “Charlie Sheen makes me look sane.” “Charlie is not on drugs,” Barr wrote (spelling, punctuation, and grammar are hers), “though he can get them from the porn star goddesses that come and go, but his urine shows clean – i think charlie is in a manic high, and is unable to get any drugs to bring him down anymore – his tiger blood statement is from that ‘eye of the tiger’ focus that manics have,” she wrote. “Manics can really work hard and play hard at the same time, until they hit a wall, and then they are in bed and depressed for a long time, so they start taking drugs again to get energy to work. Charlie, take a break dude.” 

She then turned her sights on former Roseanne writer and Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre, adding “…those s— chuck lorre lines could choke a f—ing horse, and render any actor who recites them stone cold soul dead. No grown man could really look himself in the mirror knowing that he  delivers s— jokes and adolescent sniggering over breasts and women’s body parts lines to the Tea partier types who are big fans of Chuck’s hilarious hijinx.”

Since that initial post, Barr has updated twice with related musings. The most recent goes so far as to say Sheen’s troubles stem from frustrations with his Two and a Half Men material. “He must have felt humiliated, caring about our country’s takeover by bulls— artists, but prevented from ever speaking about it or mentioning it on any televised or internet media. I’ll bet he just tried to mask his shame by crackin’ out.”
