Charlie, Charlie.

Sheen, Ebert: the tweet-off.

Charlie Sheen’s response cracks me up: it’s the definition of lonely.

Sure you “go down on 5 ladies-for-hire” or fame n’fun-seeking “friends” for an hour…but then you’re alone in your cheap mansion with a bunch of less-than-loving people who don’t love or know you.
