'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Are Sheen's friends and fans turning on him?

We've got more shocking Charlie Sheen news today! Police showed up at Charlie Sheen’s home late Thursday night to search for weapons.

And listen to this: It’s “National Unfollow Charlie Sheen Day” on Twitter. Have Charlie’s fans had enough?

I think I have. Charlie’s a complete disaster, and it is really sad. And it’s not just a day of digital Sheen dissing – some of the biggest names in Hollywood are outraged and speaking out.

Speaking of big Hollywood names, I think J. Lo is great on “American Idol”. She truly cares, and it shows, but today we’re asking what you think – is all this crying making you like J.Lo more than ever? Or is she not doing it for you? Vote here.

And have you heard? Today’s the day Mel Gibson is supposed to appear in court to face domestic violence charges. Will Mel stay out of jail with a plea deal?

We’re also naming the Most Provocative Celebrity of the Week. The nominees: Charlie Sheen, Mel Gibson and Lindsay Lohan – for not accepting a plea deal, yet, in her jewelry theft case. I want you to vote on our Facebook wall.

Other big stories we’re fired up about on the show today…

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are over!

See you on "Showbiz Tonight" at 5 p.m. ET and again at 11 p.m. ET/PT on HLN today!

Watch Showbiz Tonight Weekdays Exclusively at 11PM ET on HLN.

    Another one-Star Jones. Yea-she's ok. She's been through a lot. While she went through so much everybody loved it.
    Poked all manner of fun and jokes at her. Now she looks like a million bucks, has written a "fiction" book–if it turns into something else it exists in thereader's mind. Nice move Star. She's smart, she's a lawyer. She's sassy and free.
    She knows just who she is and that's the freeing experience.Proud of ya!

    NO! Charlie Sheen's friends aren't going anywhere. I think he's keen! I think he's great. He's having fun and
    everybody doesn't understand him because they don't want to and they can't make him conform. Go, Charlie!
    I'm for you-I understand! Good for you!

  5. Sick of it!

    Showbiz tonight!!! the "whole world" is NOT watching Charlie Sheen...I chose to stop watching and turn you off. While it is sad to see anyone destroy their life, Charlie is NOT "News" or entertainment.....can't you see you are so much a part of the train wreck that we are supposed to be watching. Remove the cameras and maybe the train can stop before it crashes!!!!

    Charlie Sheen aka Mr. 😈 seems to turn on everyone who isn't on his delusional bandwagon. Most people have already grown tired of hearing/watching his lunatic rantings 🙄 Please get help Charlie before you die 😥

    I feel so bad for Charlie being caught in the bondage of addiction. His real friends and family have tried intervention over the years. The people around him now are just there until the party is over then they will abandon him. There are only three outcomes of addiction, recovery, prison or death. I think (if he were thinking rationally) he should check into the best rehab facility available and do inpatient for no less than a year. After that he should have sponsors by his side for a very long time. He has to have his moment of "clarity" which might be a while in coming. In the meantime, why can't the media be a little more sensitive? A tragedy is unfolding before our eyes and it seems that a majority of people enjoy watching a good man go down. God bless Charlie. I pray for his recovery.

  11. CNN tips for Tracy from a fellow sufferer

    bad letter combinations / words to avoid if you want to get past the CNN "awaiting moderation" filter:

    Many, if not most, are buried within other words, so use your imagination.

    NOTE: You can use dashes, spaces, or other characters to modify the "offending" letter combinations.
    ar-se.....as in Car-se, etc.
    co-ck.....as in co-ckatiel, co-ckatrice, co-ckleshell, co-ckles, lubco-ck, etc.
    co-on.....as in rac-oon, coc-oon, etc.
    cu-m......as in doc-ument, accu-mulate, circu-mnavigate, circu-mstances, cu-mbersome, cuc-umber, etc.
    cu-nt.....as in Scu-ntthorpe, a city in the UK famous for having problems with filters...!
    ef-fing...as in ef-fing filter
    ft-w......as in soft-ware, delft-ware, swift-water, etc.
    ho-mo.....as in ho-mo sapiens or ho-mose-xual, ho-mogenous, etc.
    ho-rny....as in tho-rny, etc.
    jacka-ss...yet "ass" is allowed by itself.....
    ja-p......as in j-apanese, ja-pan, j-ape, etc.
    koo-ch....as in koo-chie koo..!
    pi-s......as in pi-stol, lapi-s, pi-ssed, therapi-st, etc.
    pr-ick....as in pri-ckling, pri-ckles, etc.
    ra-pe.....as in scra-pe, tra-peze, gr-ape, thera-peutic, sara-pe, etc.
    se-x......as in Ess-ex, s-exual, etc.
    sh-@t.....but shat is okay – don't use the @ symbol there.
    sp-ic.....as in disp-icable, hosp-ice, consp-icuous, susp-icious, sp-icule, sp-ice, etc.
    ti-t......as in const-itution, att-itude, ent-ities, alt-itude, beat-itude, etc.
    tw-at.....as in wristw-atch, nightw-atchman, etc.
    va-g......as in extrava-gant, va-gina, va-grant, va-gue, sava-ge, etc.
    who-re....as in who're you kidding / don't forget to put in that apostrophe!

    There are more, some of them considered "racist", so do not assume that this list is complete.
    Allowed words / not blocked at all:

    raping (ra-pe is not ok)
    shat (sh-@t is not ok)
    The CNN / WordPress filter also filters your EMAIL address and NAME as well – so you might want to check those.

    I have found the best way to re-submit is to hit the back button, look for and fix the problem, delete your cookies, and then hit "post".

    If you don't want to use dashes or other characters and seriously want your words to remain correct, you can paste in the proper code strings to take the place of any letter. To do this, either google "html ent-ities" (without the dash) also known as unicode strings or go to "w3schools.com/tags/ref_ascii.asp".

    Look for simple tables that show the alphabet with the associated character string and replace any letter with the string – and it will post the correct letter without falling afoul of the nasty filter.
    Example: fuck (I used the characters &,#,1,1,7,; to form the "u") 😯
    Also: there is no "moderator" as many people like to assume. The filter is automatic. As is the "report abuse" button – it deletes the post without human review after a certain number of hits. This is not to say that CNN might actually have someone check things once in a while, but they do not, I'm pretty sure, "moderate" the comments in this anonymous blog as far as I can tell.

    This is another instance where you didn't post my comment CNN. You people make me sick. Unless someone says something sick and perverted, chances are it won't get posted. CNN SUCKS!!!!!!

    Charlie Sheen has completely lost it. http://foodiegossip.blogspot.com/2011/03/charlie-sheens-cooking-show-winning.html And when he get's "it" back and realizes how insane he's been acting, it'll take years to recover from that embarrassment.

    Because you people at showbiz try to turn everyone against Charlie and you have no idea what the truth really is – I am going to follow him on Twitter. You should be ashamed of yourself – you insult every actor that does not act the way you want – man I would love to see the paps follow you and get into your lives!!!!!

    It's almost like people yelling for the guy on the bridge to jump. It's getting sad now. I don't want him to die, but he is on a course that leads to total destruction.

    Charlie is a mad genius... the shows producer says he is too "out there" to show up for "work" & basically play himself.. a hard partying rich playboy who is out of touch with reality, and goes on benders... a role that was written for Carlos. So Charlie takes a drug test in front of cameras.... then goes on every TV and radio station in the known universe to rant and rave about how they breached his contract. Then does his own web casts... obviously reading from cue cards or a tele-prompter, non stop for the last week. It seems like going to the set of 2.5 men would be child's play by comparison as far as work goes. He is wacky... but not slurring his words ..and or having a hard time delivering complicated monolog. Seems like he has a pretty good case to me. just saying...
