Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

The Charlie vs. The Selma

selmaThere’s war on Charlie Sheen’s Anger Management set and there’s talk of fire-ations up in there! Who is getting the boot allegedly?

None other than Selma Blair!

Allegedly, Blair complained to executives about Charlie’s CPT problems (aka, ‘ability to report to set on time’) and that his work ethic smelled reeked of blah and terrible. Well, those execs told Charlie and Charlie, in turn, flipped his crackpipe! Now, he claims has fired Selma and will replace her with…

The Mila! (As in, Kunis!)

And get this: Sheen wants to pay Mila $1 million per episode to appear.

No word from Selma’s people so far. And anyway, can Sheen really afford Mila at $1 mil per?

Computer says yes, but?

Stay tuned…

Charlie Sheen Talks About Working With Freckles On Anger Management Set

charlie_sheen

Charlie Sheen got to see first hand what it is like to work with always-late-hot-mess drama queen Lindsay Lohan on the set of Anger Management. And let me just say that MOST of the rumors about Freckles are true. So did she steal jewelry from the set? Was she late and unprepared? Did she show up with a hangover from hell?

Check out what Masheen says about our beloved Freckles here. You may be surprised! Or not…

Charlie Sheen May Have The Last Laugh

Remember when Charlie Sheen was fired from Two and a Half Men and we thought we had seen the last of him and then he went on that massive tour where he made obscene amounts of money offering up tomfoolery and then again we’d thought we’d heard the end of him? Then he was tapped to head Anger Management and we thought it would never see the light of day? Well, that little show that couldn’t possibly right the Sheen ship has indeed done just that and now critics are scratching their heads as to how Sheen manages to land on his feet when most crackheads fall by the wayside.

Sheen’s Anger Management on FX pulled in the biggest numbers for that network’s for that network’s history, delivering over 5.5 million viewers in its debut. If these numbers hold up over ten episodes, the network will be forced to order 90 episodes of the series, which would make it ripe for syndication, which would in turn make Sheen rich all over again, which would mean that we would all be subjected yet again to a future streak of rented titty balls, coke runs, and bar brawls.

 

Let’s keep those ratings up, folks!!!

VIP EXCLUSIVE: Katlin Mastendrea Talks Working With Charlie Sheen on Anger Management Set

Katlin Mastandrea is fairly new to the television world, but the young actress has already had one huge gig with her role on the TV show “The Middle” and NOW she’s set to star alongside Charlie Sheen in the FX show “Anger Management”. Celebrityviplounge.com had the chance to chat with Katlin about her life in the business and most importantly what it was like to work with the Masheen because we are all dying to know, right?! Is he really a warlock? And was he spotted with Tiger Blood on set?

Check out our interview below.

CVIP: Hi Katlin! It is great to chat with you. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself, where you grew up and why you decided to pursue acting?

KATLIN: I grew up in Littleton, Colorado. I have a younger brother who I am very close to. I guess I am more of what most would consider introverted; but I see myself as an observer of life. You need to stand back and just take things in and absorb what is really going on around you. I find it very calming, extremely funny, and definitely helping to listen more. People usually assume I am very shy but I am really just observing and taking everything into account. It definitely helps when pulling subtle details into my work/acting.

I am a gamer; I enjoy reading a lot of fiction, non-fiction if history related, but mainly fiction. I am working on a series of my own, book wise, and illustrating it as well. I am learning bass guitar. I find creative things are most comforting for me. I am in college, pursuing a career in directing. The whole process of what goes into making film is very exciting to me (crew all the way through producing and directing). To me, to be able to tell a story to its fullest and move people, take them away from reality for just a bit, is just, well, incredible.

CVIP: You are a co star of The Middle. How has this role changed you as an actress and what has been the most challenging part of playing Ashley?

KATLIN: I can’t say it has changed me as an actress. It is more like trying out another possible side to myself if given the same circumstances as the character. I don’t see myself as Ashley, but more as someone I can relate to as far as not caring how others perceive you, or try and push you into a certain way to be. She is definitely a free spirit that really likes wizardy stuff to the point of obsession, and of ‘course, she doesn’t see it as an obsession. The most challenging part is containing the character to being almost robotic, stoic. My impulse is to just go full on weird Ashley and bits in English gentlemen voices, and totally improv her. But, stoic robot is good. English gentleman Ashley will have to be for another venue, later time, but she is there, waiting, lurking in the back of my mind.

CVIP: Are there any similarities between you and your character Ashley?

KATLIN: Definitely the part of worrying about how others perceive you. I think Ashley is just comfortable in her own skin and finds it very normal, so far, regardless of what others may think. Hence, giving her the name “Weird Ashley”. For me, I am who I am. If I tried to fit in with everyone, I would lose myself in the end. Like minds find like minds. I think I am in the perfect profession to follow that logic too because many of us are a bit shy/introverted on the surface, but when you give us a window to play in, you can’t shut us up.

CVIP: You are working with Charlie Sheen in Anger Management. Can you tell us a little bit about your role and what was it like working with Masheen? We like to call him Masheen because he is a force to be reckoned with. ..a machine, so to speak. The guy is a great actor…kind of kooky…ok, a lot of kooky. So what was it like working with him?

KATLIN: Ok, I think you are basically asking what it is like to work with Charlie. It has been a lot of fun. Set has been very productive and easy. Almost sad that it is multi-camera because it is done so quickly. The creative banter is fun to be around and the guy is very funny. The whole cast is really funny and plays off each other quite nicely. Charlie seems to be always thinking one step ahead. You can tell he knows what he wants to happen and just plays around with a scene a bit to get it perfect. I guess you could say he is a perfectionist in a great way. You definitely don’t feel like an outsider when you come to set.

As far as my character, she is Olivia and one of Sam’s (Charlie’s daughter) best buds. She thinks she is so wise beyond her years, and things that drive her decisions could be considered a little off the normal scale. I guess she would be my alter ego if I had one with her obsessions. The character is a bit fun to play around with to say the least.

CVIP: What is the set atmosphere like on Anger Management?

KATLIN: It is quite fun. I think the newness of the show adds some bit of excitement, but overall, the cast and crew they have put together, you can’t help but feel a bit at home, in your element. The moment I step on the lot, security guard is cracking jokes with me, then check in with Kosh and he usually has something funny to chat up about and right on down the line. For me, it has been a great soaking in of the talent surrounding me. You can learn a lot from the veterans of the group. Which, aside from Daniella, Hannah, and I, they are all pretty much veterans, so it is a lot of fun to be a part of and watch. It is really quite exciting.

CVIP: What actors/actresses do you look up to?

KATLIN: Helena Bohnem Carter is my fav of favs. I also love the SNL ladies…Gilda, Tina, Amy, Kristen and Abby. Along with Johnny Depp, Jim Carrey, Robin Williams, Eddie Izzard. I truly aspire to being able to play an array of characters such as these people have portrayed and continue to show us. I would just like to camp out in their minds for a day and play.

CVIP: Do you have any secret talents?

KATLIN: Opening doors with my toes when my arms are full.

CVIP: What is on your ipod right now?

KATLIN: Games – Pocket Gods, Tiny Towers; Music – Marina and the Diamonds, Fun, Foster the People, The Killers, Mika.

CVIP: Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

KATLIN: Continue to work (act) in tv, alongside of films. I see myself as apprentice director-in-training, gopher, writing, court-jester, everything I possibly can to stay in this field of dream. Who knows, maybe Lorne Michaels will be able to add me to his long, long list of “hire me please”.

CVIP: What is the greatest piece of advice that someone has given you?

KATLIN: In the words of RuPaul, and paraphrasing here, “don’t mess it up.”

You can check out Katlin on Anger Management on FX on the season premiere tomorrow Thursday June 28th.

Charlie Sheen Retiring After Anger Management

Charlie Sheen is already announcing his retirement from the acting business. After he finishes up his upcoming FX show Anger Management, he says he is throwing in the mudder focking towel. And to that we say, BOO!!!

Masheen, as I like to call him, told the New York Times, “I’ve got a dream life as a direct result of television, you know? But at some point you just get tired of wearing somebody else’s clothes, saying somebody else’s words and working in somebody else’s space. When I’m done with this business it’s just going to be about soccer games and amusement parks. And when this ends, I’m done. This is my swan song… There’s a lot more out there to do than make-believe, you know?”

Well I don’t think that he will be going anywhere too soon as a second season of the show has been picked up by FX even before its June 28th premiere.

I mean cripes, we don’t need the guy having any extra time on his hands. Do we? Stick to your craft, Masheen! Don’t go!

Charlie Sheen and Ex-Wife Denise Richards in New Show

Now who says ex-spouses can’t work together?

Well, me, actually. I totally wouldn’t do it.

But apparently Charlie Sheen is proving that it is possible! He has enlisted te help of ex-wife Denise Richards to star in a new show titled, “Anger Management.”

Okay, irony, anyone?

And to further prove that fiction often mirrors real life, Richard’s character will play the ex-wife of Sheen’s character. But the idea of acting with each other isn’t entirely foreign, because apparently Richards showed up on an episode of Spin City (wow, remember that? Nope, me either) and an episode of Two and a Half Men. But Denise Richards will only be a guest star of the show, not a regular character, so there’s only so much fun we can ha
Anve with this.

d if your next question was if this show is based on that really stupid movie out a few years ago? The answer is yes! Although it’s loosely based on it, the general premise is still the same with harlie Sheen’s character as a baseball player with anger issues, who winds up with in unconvential anger management therapist. But this time Sheen potentially falls in love with his therapist, as played by Selma Blair. And that didn’t happen in the movie, did it?

Describing his character, Sheen says, “He’s flawed…He’s an ex-ball player who had anger issues, whose career ended because of an incident…trying to break a bat, you know, didn’t go well. He’s a guy that just wants to give something back.”

He also claims the eight days on this show were more fun than the eight years on Two and a Half men. Uh-huh. Yah. Sour grapes anyone? Although he does admit his desire for a “Torpedo of Truth Tour” being a tad “cringeable.” His honesty is refreshing, to say the least.

Can’t wait for Anger Management? Me too. so be sure to catch it on FX on June 28 at 9/8C.

Masheen is coming back to TV Summer 2012!

It’s official Masheeners! The Masheen is coming back to television on June 28th in the premiere of his new FX series “Anger Management” and he is the star of the show. The once cracked out (at least we think he is sober now) actor stars as a therapist who has anger issues and explains why he decided to take on such a role.

Charlie said, “I chose ‘Anger Management’ because, while it might be a big stretch for me to play a guy with serious anger management issues, I think it is a great concept.”

We are hearing that the show is going to run this summer on Thursdays at 9:30 and is based on the “Anger Management” movie starring Adam Sandler and Jack Nicholson film.

Teen Mom Amber Portwood still suicidal after rehab!

“Teen Mom” fans who have been pulling for Amber Portwood to get her crap together real fast may be a tad disappointed to hear that the young mama still doesn’t want to live. It’s only been TWO months since Portwood checked out of rehab treatment for depression and anger management, and now the poor girl was rushed to the hospital after suffering what she found out to be a severe panic attack.
