Charlie Sheen, star of CBS’ number one rated comedy series, surprised many by calling into the Dan Patrick Show on Tuesday morning about getting back to the set of his television series, not drinking and admits to having a brand new girlfriend. Charlie has told his bosses that he’s ready to come back to work next week, but they feel he might need a little more time.
His response was, “I just figured I was supposed to go back to work because I’m ready. They said, ‘You get ready [and] we’ll get ready.’ And I got ready.” Regarding the advice many people close to him give him, he said, “Most of [the advice I get] is really lame,” he said, adding that most people tell him, ‘Stay like this.’ Today, I’ll stay like this,” he said. “I’m having a ball. I am enjoying every moment.”
Sheen, father of four, also admitted to Patrick that he started drinking again because he was bored: “It tends to do with boredom,” he said, adding that he’s never been one to cave to peer pressure. “It’s about wanting to make things better – whether it’s real or imagined.”
Charlie also admitted that he had Valentine’s Day plans with a new girlfriend, but didn’t want to disclose her name.
