Comedy Central Denies Inviting Charlie Sheen's Former Gal Pal, Porn Star Capri Anderson, to Roast
Comedy Central has denied reports that it invited Capri Anderson, the porn star who was with Charlie Sheen when he vandalized a New York Plaza hotel room in October of last year, to the roast in his honor airing next month.
A network spokesperson tells The Hollywood Reporter that “Capri Anderson will not be participating in the roast nor attending.” Additionally, the spokesperson told us, “There has [been] no invite.”
Huffpost reported on Tuesday that Anderson told them, “I am considering a request that I partake in the upcoming roast. I am ready to let bygones be bygones and laughter is the best remedy.”
The site also reports that its sources say Anderson isn’t the only one who got such an offer and that several invites went out to women from Sheen’s past.
“Charlie is getting paid a fortune to be roasted and nothing is supposed to be off limits,” an inside source tells the site. “However, if he really wanted Capri or other ladies excluded from the show, I’m sure producers would make it happen.”
THR requested comment from the network on whether it extended invites to Sheen’s past female companions aside from Anderson. It didn’t return our request by the time this article posted.
Apparently, at least one of Sheen’s exes is clearly not attending. Ex-wife Denise Richards turned down her invitation.
Sheen's Comedy Central Roast airs Sept. 19, the same night Two and a Half Men returns to CBS.
[Update: A network spokesperson tells us, the "current guest list does not include the exes or Capri."]
