And that is fine by me.
Who would’ve thought that a wild escapade would translate into the shutting down of a very successful and lucrative show on CBS. At first, many thought that Charlie was a drug-induced nut-job–much like Mel Gibson, but Charlie proved everyone wrong. The guy really does have tiger blood. It is on display by jumping head first into this media firestorm. This is something that any other celebrity–or normal person–would run away from. Lyndsay Lohan and Mel Gibson don’t have the testicular fortitude to do what Charlie has. The only other person that has done such a stunt was former Illinois Governor, Rod Blagojevich.
In fact, it was the people in the media and all the talking heads that thought Governor Blagojevich was using poor judgement when it came to employing such a narcissistic blazing trail, but he had the last laugh. He was found not guilty on all but one count–in his trial. He will most likely not ever see the inside of a prison, and he made lots of money in the process.
So, what’s in it for Charlie?
In every interview people immediately suspect that Charlie is under the influence of some drug. In every instance, he has submitted to a drug test and passed. What this writer finds hysterical is that all these experts are forgetting that Charlie is an actor. Not only is he an actor, but he is a highly paid one.
Could this just be a stunt?
Although Charlie is a celebrity and a filthy rich millionaire–he is also the underdog. And that is the reason why so many people are behind him. I can sympathize with his plight, actually. It must be tough to go through life feeling used and abused by almighty executives that squeeze the living life out of you for the bottom dollar, and the ex-wives look like saints posed next to his ex-wives.
One can only imagine what it must be like to find out through the rumor mill that you might be replaced by someone else. What would you do?
Well, one thing is for certain…we all know what Charlie is doing, and I love it!
