      “alot of common sense”

      Common sense would tell you “alot” isn’t a word.

  • Dino Archon

  • Steve

    Looks to me like Charlie Sheen has gone on a drug induced trip that he is not coming back from.

    • TT

      i hope your wrong – but the pictures of the “then and now” are a bit disconcerting……I do wish him well..

  • Monalsa Liz-ardo

    He needs a mouthpiece, his Publicity agent quit. He has enough funds to last his lifetime and alimony, why work?

  • Daniel

    Maybe he won’t need an intern now that he’ll have a lot more free time on his hands.

  • BD McGee

    That’s a lot of people with no life.

  • Fred Lopez

    sheen is a loser and anyone who would apply is a bigger loser

    • Laughing in el monte

      Or, plotting how to skim his fortune when he’s all too busy snorting cocaine off Bree Olson.

  • Gary Busey

    Hire me I would perfect person for the job!!!

    • Deb

      Actually, you would be and I’m not kidding.

  • c.berg

    All my children are grown and quite sane; I would be happy to take this young confussed man and guide him along on the right path and not take any sh-t from him either. I am six foot tall and weigh 175 lbs. and don’t mess with me because I will come out the winner. Let me know!

    • thoMz


      you’re fat and full of LOSE.

  • roe

    I myself did not think sheen was the show , it was the housekeeper, Rosie and the mother. I enjoyed the show when they were on. I hope they get a bigger part on the show

  • RN Angel

    At the rate he’s going, Charlie needs to start lining up pallbearers, not interns.

  • Rollo2

    Never watched his show, I’m twice his age, and SN is for people who don’t know anybody, or anything, important.

  • Rollo2

    Talk about a temporary position,… Maybe Charlie should call MANPOWER?

    • Ernest Strong

      Not MANpower. He’s into women

  • Gustoff

    Well, when he says “intern” he really means “nanny”, and when he says “nanny” he really means “skanky porn star”, so if you want to apply the only “social networking” you’ll be doing is working on Charlie’s hard drive.

  • Mr. Webster

    Do you people read your comments before hitting send. Your grammar and spelling are terrible,

    • Pookie

      Hey, be nice…making fun of someones gramma is wrong! Some of them can barely see to type.

      Gram if you see this, I love you!

  • Ernest Strong

    Did Nancy Pelosi or Debbie Wassermann apply? I would think that someone experienced in the ways of Interns might be first on line. Hillary Clinton comes to mind.

  • John Angel

    You’re all missing the point, at least he’s not cowering like most of you.
