"Two and a Half Men" creator Chuck Lorre, known for his creative use of “vanity cards” at the end of his various shows to reveal behind-the-scenes tidbits, packed some interesting info into a card that ran after Monday’s episode of CBS’s “Men,” Deadline.com reports.
The timing of the card is especially interesting, given that Charlie Sheen’s lawsuit against Lorre and Warner Bros. TV was settled earlier the same day, as previously reported.
The message strongly implies that Lorre — even though he wants to put the episode behind him — also wants to exorcise his demons about the Sheen ordeal — perhaps even writing a tell-all book.
Here’s the text of the card:
“Sometime last year I realized I had become the unwilling contestant in a reality show. I didn’t understand the rules, wasn’t sure if there even were any, and pretty much hated every second of it. For many months I kept hoping and praying that it would end. But it did not. Somewhere along the way, something inside me died. Anyway, now, suddenly, I’m being told that the reality show’s been cancelled. Apparently, it was just one of those things that somehow got out of control. Sorry. Whoops. Live and learn. Moving on. Game over. And that’s fine. I am so good with that. Yes, please, let’s all move on. There’s just one problem. That thing inside me that died? It walks at night. It’s angry. It’s hungry. And worst of all … it’s writing a tell-all book.”
