Says Sheen didn’t reveal status


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 ‘f-ck you’ and hang up the phone.

Sheen tells Lauer on Today, that he is HIV positive, but he does not have AIDS:

I’m here to admit that I am in fact HIV Positive…It started with what I thought was a series of crushing headaches. I thought I had a brain tumor. I thought it was over. It’s a hard three letters to absorb. It’s a turning point in one’s life…[I had to speak out] to put a stop to this barrage of attacks of sub-truths and very harmful and mercurial stories that threaten the health of so many others…I have a responsibility now to better myself and help a lot of other people.

Sheen also says he has been the victim of years of blackmail, giving millions of dollars in extortion money to prostitutes with whom he had relations in hopes that they would keep his HIV status a secret.

My trust turned to their treason.

He admits having unprotected sex with two individuals, whom he says were warned beforehand and “under the care” of his doctor.He also says he’s no longer doing drugs, but still drinks “a little bit.”

Scotty and I had a great year together as we travelled the world and crossed a lot of things off our bucket list. She’s a terrific gal – but we’ve mutually decided to go our separate ways and not spend the rest of our lives together. I’ve decided that my children deserve my focus more than a relationship does right now. I still have a tremendous fondness for Scotty and I wish her all the best.

Charlie Sheen interview


Seacrest interviews Sheen during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about the tight schedule of his show Anger Management. 

In about a month, we’ll have done 100 episodes and we’ll have finished the work of six or seven years in a normal sitcom schedule. It’s been a grind. We do two shows a week. Sometimes we shoot five days a week the good news about it is you don’t have a lot of time to over-think what you’re doing. The bad news is you don’t get a lot of time to prepare.

Rihanna brush off


The actor goes on a Twitter rampage against Rihanna when she refuses to meet with his new fiancee when the three wound up in the same restaurant. He tweets:

So, I took my gal out to dinner last night with her best friends for her Bday. We heard Rihanna was present as well. I sent a request over to her table to introduce my fiancee Scotty to her, as she is a huge fan. (Personally I couldn’t pick her out of a lineup at gunpoint.) Well, the word we received back was that there were too many paps outside and it just wasn’t possible at this time. At this time? AT THIS TIME?? Lemme guess, we’re to reschedule another random 11 million to 1 encounter with her some other night?No biggie for me; it would have been 84 interminable seconds of chugging Draino and ‘please kill me now’ that I’d never get back.My Gal, however, was NOT OK with it. Nice impression you left behind, Bday or not. Sorry we’re not KOOL enough to warrant a blessing from the Princess. (Or in this case the Village idiot.)
