This is a special edition of Eye Candy Monday. Not all the pictures are pretty.
Remember, Charlie, when you smiled like this?
But you don't smile that way any more. For quite some time, shots of Charlie Sheen show a grim guy wearing a hat and shades.
Word is, you're thinking of getting gold teeth. For fun? Well, maybe . . .
or maybe it's because when you do smile, showing your teeth, you look like this:
Readers may ask why I send a Valentine to a guy who hits women.
This guy has hit women:
I think drugs and alcohol had a lot (I'm not saying everything) to do with why he did. And why you do.
Eminem had the guts to record a song, with Rihanna, called "Love the Way You Lie," that actually examines violence against women. It isn't really as simple an issue as we thought it was. I learned this from an abused wife I tried to help. Now, we've all learned it, from Eminem and Rihanna.
But he had to get better to make an album like Recovery.
You're in rehab now, Charlie. You could recover. Here's a guy who looked like he was down for the count, not all that long ago. This is Robert Downey, Jr.'s mug shot. He went to rehab and paid attention. And he did it. Day by day, for ten years now, he has stayed away from the same demons that are killing you.
Now he looks like this.
Charlie, you are the highest paid actor on TV and the star of a hit comedy show, Two and a Half Men that is now in its eighth season. You're number one, man. Except today the last episode in the can will air, after which the show goes "on hiatus." It's all up to you, now.
Please get better.
I'm not afraid. To take a stand.
Everybody, come take my hand.
We'll walk this road together.
- Not afraid, from Recovery, by Eminem.
Charlie Sheen, you are not alone.
