Roseanne Barr Defends Charlie Sheen, Attacks 'Big Drunk' Chuck Lorre
She famously feuded with Lorre when he was a producer on her ABC sitcom.
Roseanne Barr is defending Charlie Sheen in a blog post titled "charlie sheen makes me look sane" after he was fired from Two and a Half Men Monday.
"Charlie is not on drugs, though he can get them from the porn star goddesses that come and go, but his urine shows clean--i think charlie is in a manic high, and is unable to get any drugs to bring him down anymore---his tiger blood statement is from that 'eye of the tiger' focus that manics have," she wrote.

"Manics can really work hard and play hard at the same time, until they hit a wall, and then they are in bed and depressed for a long time, so they start taking drugs again to get energy to work."
Her advice to Sheen? "Charlie, take a break dude. Go to Greece, Paris, China, look at great art and lay low. you got fired, dude."
She couldn't resist making a dig at Two and a Half Men co-creator Chuck Lorre, whom she famously sparred with when he was the supervising producer on her eponymous sitcom.
("One of the benefits of working 70 hours a week in hell is that the mind covers itself so you can’t remember it,” Lorre said in a 2007 interview. The network wanted a comedy, and Barr wanted that too -- but one that also dealt with sensitive social issues. She got her way in the time-honored diva tradition: refusing dialogue, walking off the set and threatening to quit.")
"Anybody can do your job, really. other guys are funny and not repulsive to intelligent women, though those shit chuck lorre lines could choke a fucking horse, and render any actor who recites them stone cold soul dead," Barr wrote. "No grown man could really look himself in the mirror knowing that he delivers shit jokes and adolescent sniggering over breasts and women's body parts lines to the Tea partier types who are big fans of Chuck's hilarious hijinx."
"I fired Chuck Lorre for being a big drunk on my show, and he went on to become one of tv's most successful writers (about dick jokes). Maybe Charlie can start producing porn movies now!! " she sniped.
