While the lawsuit of Chuck Lorre and Warner Brothers versus Charlie Sheen may have come to an end, Chuck still seems to be haunted by his fallout with Charlie. The Two and a Half Men creator took a jab at the 45-year-old actor in last night’s vanity card following the hit CBS sitcom, now starring Ashton Kutcher as Charlie’s replacement in the lead role.
“Sometime last year I realized I had become the unwilling contestant in a reality show. I didn’t understand the rules, wasn’t sure if there even were any, and pretty much hated every second of it,” Chuck wrote in the Vanity Card. “For many months I kept hoping and praying that it would end. But it did not. Somewhere along the way, something inside me died. Anyway, now, suddenly, I’m being told that the reality show’s been cancelled. Apparently, it was just one of those things that somehow got out of control. Sorry.”
He then made reference to a tell-all book Charlie was shopping around for a publishing deal.
“Yes, please, let’s all move on. There’s just one problem. That thing inside me that died? It walks at night. It’s angry. It’s hungry. And worst of all…it’s writing a tell-all book.”
Now that the lawsuit is over, and Charlie seems to be on the mend, do you think these former pals will eventually rekindle their friendship?
A rep for WB released the following statement yesterday: “Warner Bros. Television, Chuck Lorre, and Charlie Sheen have resolved their dispute to the parties’ mutual satisfaction.”
Regardless, Two and a Half Men is still going strong sans Charlie. The season 9 premiere raked in over 27 million viewers, setting a record for the sitcom.
