It's Brooke Anderson here, and today I’m really fired up over Charlie Sheen’s attorney and his unbelievable defense of the "Two and a Half Men" actor.
Yale Galanter just appeared on HLN’s “The Joy Behar Show” and claimed that Charlie’s alleged hotel rampage in New York City may have never happened.
Yale admits Charlie did bring a woman up to his room, but basically denies everything else! So where did all the reports of Charlie’s wild night come from? And if they aren’t true, why doesn’t Charlie sue the tabloids for spreading rumors?
Behar asked him that question, saying if Carol Burnett could sue the tabloids for their misreporting, then why can’t Charlie Sheen? Galanter responded: “I don't think that somebody who has got the celebrity status that Charlie has could ever sue a tabloid… Carol Burnett is not Charlie Sheen. Charlie Sheen is the most popular actor on the planet.”
Wait, so did Yale really call Charlie “the most popular actor on the planet”? He’s popular, no doubt, but that’s a STRONG statement! I’ve covered massive stars like Brad Pitt, Eva Longoria and David Beckham going after tabloids...Is Charlie Sheen really more popular than Brad Pitt?!?
So what do you think? It’s our "Showbiz" Flashpoint today: Is Charlie Sheen really the most popular actor on the planet? Post your comments below and we’ll try to work some in the show.
Of course, that’s not the only story sparking big controversy today. Check out what else I’ll have for you today.
Madonna is speaking out about being bullied! On the same day “Glee” is dedicating an episode to the issue of bullying, Madonna reveals her own experiences being bullied as a kid.
And, LeAnn Rimes is releasing her controversial new song called “Crazy Women." The song is reportedly about women and the men who drive them crazy and cheat on them! Isn’t this just going to make it hard for people to forget her cheating scandal?
