Charlie Sheen has come full circle. From young star to hearthrob to someone who is being shunned for being sick, he has seen it all. I don’t know if he gets it, but he is seeing the kind of downs that every people see in their lifetimes. Let’s just hope that the man doesn’t give up on life out of a broken heart before they discover a cure for the dreaded disease he has contracted.
How do you live after life has pronouced a moratorium on all your hopes and dreams for the future? Charlie Sheen is in a very bad phase right now. He has admitted to the world that he has contracted the only disease in the world that can’t be cured medically yet.
AIDS is very hard on the patients, but the social stigma that you contract just from contracting the disease is more painful. It is a foregone conclusion that his old sexual partners will sue him legally and he is already preparing for it by putting his house on the market. Will anybody want to buy it? The social stigma will kill Sheen even before the disease kills him.
It will be really painful for Sheen to have the transition from hearthrob of millions to a man who has become a living horror story. He was the romantic icon of the nineties. “You learn love from Charlie Sheen,” was the maxim my generation grew up with. It comes from Jewel’s 2001 hit “Intuition.” Is this the Universe’s way of dishing out Irony? Are we supposed to tell ourselves that if we over-indulge in the sensual pleasures, death adds us to the roster early?
Six plus ex-partners are going to sue Charlie Sheen and they have even roped in Gloria Allred to represent them if the rumor is to be believed. Gloria Allred is the lawyer who has been skinning Bill Cosby lately. So Charle Sheen is preparing for the worst.
The worst he could do is scream, “Bring it on!” and jump into the frey.
The news is all over the internet. We picked it up from Radar online.
