Olson, who was in a relationship with Sheen when he received his HIV diagnosis, tells Howard Stern that he never informed her about his status. She said that there were threesomes and a “stream” of women he slept with, and that he wanted to use lambskin condoms, which are ineffective in protecting against sexually transmitted infections. She says she has been tested for HIV and does not have the infection.
We were sleeping together every night. Never said anything. ‘I’m clean,’ he told me. ‘I’m clean, I’m clean. There were times when we didn’t use condoms.
When Stern asks if Sheen owes her an apology:
I don’t want it … I’d say ‘fuck you’ and hang up the phone.
Stern says Trump will be the 2016 GOP presidential nominee.
I’ll tell you why I think he’s going to be the nominee: He’s proven that no matter what he says, people dig him. [Voters] hate illegal immigrants but they just feel funny saying it — whether it’s rational or not — ‘Is the illegal immigrant draining your economy?’ Possibly. ‘Is he taking away your job?’ Possibly. I think more or less, people are super tired of politicians, meaning that they like the idea of a successful businessman running the country who might actually be able to get s— done…But the problem with it is, and Donald Trump will find this: being the president isn’t like being the president of a corporation. You still got to go through Congress for everything you want to do. And that’s the tough part. You’ve got to be one who can consolidate on both sides of the aisle, some sort of coalition. And it’s very difficult.

My whole attempt with this ‘America’s Got Talent’ was to go on a show that I enjoy. I love all these shows, my TiVo thinks I’m a 30-year-old woman.
Seacrest interviews Stern during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about judging on America’s Got Talent.
