"CHARLIE SHEEN: THE PARTY NEVER STOPS" PREMIERES WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 9 AT 10:00PM ET/PT
LOS ANGELES - February 8, 2011 - It's been a wild year for Charlie Sheen, whose much publicized and destructive antics have dominated entertainment news coverage lately, and who has the television industry scratching their heads about how to handle one of America's highest paid actors. With countless documented nights partying with adult film stars from New York to Vegas, along with reports of drug use and violence, Sheen has somehow managed to remain above the fray and his hit TV show "Two and a Half Men" has only become more popular with audiences. However, when the star checked into Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after a reported 36-hour alcohol and cocaine bender, his friends, family and bosses were left wondering if this was the tipping point for the troubled actor. "Charlie Sheen: The Party Never Stops" premieres Wednesday, February 9 at 10:00pm ET/PT only on E!
In this all-new special, E! takes viewers through Sheen's crazy past year, mapping out the star's destructive few months, including a trip back to rehab after an incident in Aspen with estranged wife Brooke Mueller, where the star allegedly came after her with a knife. E! was the only entertainment outlet to interview with arresting Aspen police officer Valerie McFarland, who details exactly what happened that night. Our in-depth reporting will take viewers back to the much publicized incident last year at New York's Plaza Hotel where police were called to find a petrified adult film star locked in a bathroom, a reportedly trashed suite and almost incoherent Sheen. In late January, Sheen found himself back in the news when he was rushed to Cedars complaining of severe abdominal pain, causing many to wonder if the star has truly hit rock bottom. The actor had been rumored to have been up for the past 36 hours in the company of numerous adult movie stars along with a large amount of cocaine.
Kacey Jordan, one of the adult film actresses who was there during the days long party, details how the night began when a "suitcase" of cocaine arrived, and how Sheen became increasingly destructive as the binge went on. Once word got out, the entertainment press and Sheen's family converged on the hospital and scrambled to find out the real reason for the 911 emergency. "I hope this isn't another Plaza Hotel," Jordan told E! As Sheen retreated to his mansion to begin an at-home rehab program, E! is the only media outlet who the actor reached out via text message, to E! Online's Marianne Garvey, and gave his reaction on several of these incidents. We will hear from Garvey to get her take on why she thinks Sheen reached to her exclusively about these latest reports.
With this latest incident, the potential fallout within the industry begins and CBS is once again stuck in the middle with the health of its biggest star and their #1 hit show is back in limbo. When the word got out that Sheen was headed back to rehab, reactions from Network executives and the show's crew poured in as production shut down again for its $2 million-a-week star to put his life back together. What's next for Charlie Sheen? He's currently (at press time) doing rehab at home and vowing to come back to work very soon. Will Sheen ever get control of his addictions? Does he remain the Teflon actor or has he reached the tipping point?"
