Charlie Sheen makes deal to return to ‘Two and a Half Men,’ earn more loot for hookers

Charlie Sheen (aka Carlos Irwin Estevez) Court Appearance
About two weeks ago, TMZ reported that Charlie Sheen had not yet reached a deal with CBS’ parent company, Warner Brothers, to return to his hit show Two and a Half Men. They claimed that Charlie first asked for a whopping $1.5 million, and that WB had “only” offered $1 million. Two and a Half Men has consistently been in the top 20 shows on television since it premiered in 2004, with a peak at #10 in the 2008-2009 season. CBS isn’t about to nix it because their star is an abusive drug addicted philandering creep in the process of divorcing his third wife.

TMZ predicted that Charlie and the network would reach a deal right before the fall season was announced on May 19. It’s May 18, and they were right. We have news that Charlie is back for two seasons. As for how much he’s receiving an episode, it’s thought to be north of the $1 million figure that was originally offered, but TMZ is vague on the actual amount. (Note: TMZ claims that Charlie initially asked for $2 million an episode. That could be true, but they reported on May 3 that he wanted $1.5. Either amount is still a fortune.)

TMZ has learned Charlie Sheen has agreed to a new deal with Warner Bros. to do 2 more years of “Two and a Half Men.”

The deal was made today. One source connected with the negotiations tells TMZ, “Charlie is very happy.”

As for how much Charlie got, TMZ first reported Charlie wanted around $2 million an episode. We’re told Warner Bros. initially offered substantially less than half that amount, but we’re told the company went up considerably.

CBS will announce the return of the show at the upfronts on Wednesday.

UPDATE: Charlie Sheen just released this statement: “To put a fitting end on the two-and-one-half months of whirlwind speculation, I’m looking forward to returning to my CBS home on Monday nights. I want to thank Les Moonves for his support.”

Charlie won’t need all of that money to settle his divorce with Brooke Mueller. He reportedly has a strict prenup that entails that Brooke gets a fixed amount, $300,000, for every year of marriage, plus a $500,000 marriage signing bonus and her share in the family home. Don’t cry for Brooke’s relatively paltry take from Sheen’s earnings, though. She stands to make upwards of six figures a month in child support for the couples’ two children, twin boys Bob and Max, 14 months. Charlie and Brooke’s reps deny that their clients have already reached a divorce settlement and claim they’re trying to work it out. Now that Charlie has signed a deal for Two and a Half Men, they can drop that facade and move forward with the divorce. Charlie now has more than enough money to blow on hookers and watches.

    I knew he was holding out for more money, his show is really funny so I’m glad he’ll be back.

  2. Marjalane says:

    This just infuriates me. This guy is all kinds of skank, and yet we the American public so adore his zany antics that he must be paid zillions of dollars to keep us enetertained??!!

    Gross, gross, gross. At least I am able to say I’ve never seen his dippy show and never will. Not that she’s doing much besides raising the daughters he gave up rights to, but I have a newfound respect for Denise Richards for dumping his butt.

    This makes me hate Hollywood with all by being.

  3. YT says:

    Nice to know the cast and crew of the show have jobs for two more years, though I doubt there is any trust or respect left for Charlie. At least he can afford to rely on his hookers for loyal companionship.

  4. Jazz says:

    I knew he wasn’t leaving the show. It was all a ploy just to negotiate more money. This creep is covered in a slimy coat of teflon.

  5. SolitaryAngel says:

    Trauma AND Legend of the Seeker was canceled, but THIS piece of shit show is still on? I HATE fucking TV network “heads”.

  6. Just a Poster says:

    My thoughts exactly SolitaryAngel!

  7. xxodettexx says:

    okay, first before i read this, i want to react to the headline: HAH! Zing!

    loved it… okay back to the topic…

  8. Laurie says:

    The fact that the show often draws from what is more or less the real life of Charlie Sheen (hangovers, hookers, low self esteem) does make me grudgingly appreciate how immensely talented he is…his art comes at a price and may be his demise … but he is the happy/tragic face that is the stage.

  9. Green Is Good says:

    Charlie needs to get vasectomy. He’s already got four kids he ignores. He doesn’t need any more.

  10. bellaluna says:

    @ Marja & Solitary – ITA! It’s just disgusting, and since I’ve never watched this POS show, I’ll continue to not watch.

    @ Green – I think he actually has five children, but one of them is an adult now.

    Charlie just needs to stick with his drugs, booze, and hookers. Recognise when something doesn’t work for you, dumbass. The definition of insanity is repeating the same process and expecting different results.

  11. Kevin says:

    Makes me wonder what Jon Cryer gets paid. The little fat kid (before he became the fat sullen teenager) and the housekeeper get most of the funny lines anyways. Cryer and Sheen worked together in the movie Hot Shots, if you remember that one.

  12. Lionors says:

    Charlie has *five* kids.

    Before Denise’s two and Brooke’s two, he had a daughter when he was 19.

  13. Jeri says:

    Jon Cryer is building a large new house, a figure for his salary was given & I’m not sure but I think it was around $500,000.

    Charlie’s negotiations have been all over the internet & papers. Not hard to know he was holding out for more money.

  14. Trillion says:

    Is there any show worse than this on TV?

  15. original kate says:

    “Is there any show worse than this on TV?”

    maybe “jersey shore?” maybe.

  16. abby says:

    That picture makes me think he has a toupee on, even though I don’t think he does. Maybe it’s just a bad pic of his hair.

  17. mark says:

    Abby: Looks like implants. Hair at hairline’s too ‘young’ & thick compared to hair on sides of head. Kevin: Another article mentions Cryer’ll get 20mil for 2 seasons: 48 episodes, a bit over 400,000 per. Maybe Cryer’s’s got an automatic raise attached to every Sheen raise. ( Larry Wilcox had a ‘Chips’ contract guaranteeing him 1 dollar more than whatever Eric Estrada made, for the life of the series. Eric fought hard for his raises, Larry just laid back & sincerely wished his co-star good luck:-)

  18. Skelly says:

    News just in…Charlie Sheen has destroyed yet another hotel suite I’ve seen today. It’s his own fault. Why does he floats around with folks that dont really love him?

  19. LEEROY says:

    why dont people just mind there own biz ,two and half men is the best show ,so charlie deserves the money and he can do whatever he wants with it

  20. Rick says:

    Sheen’s rants are reminiscent of the rants of another sort of infamous/famous California guy’s rants also named “Charlie.”
    Ring any bells?

    Hint: The other Charlie has had a problem with parole for several years.

    The authorities never put up a stop sign until someone dies at that intersection until someone dies. Nor will the authorities-especially for coddled Hollywood fancy people-ever hold they’re money makers accountable for they’re behavior.

    If Charlie Sheen knocked on my door after dark, I would do what every responsible American parent should do and that would be lock the door, run for the gun, and call 911. Especially if you have teenage daughters.

  21. Sheen News says:

    Cool article, surprised Charlie makes that much.

  22. Zack Ornedo says:

    I know that down deep Charlie Sheen is probably a good person, such a shame…

  23. jarren jelich says:
