Good question, Martina McBride. She just tweeted today (Feb. 28), “Anyone wonder why those two little kids are allowed to be in the house with charlie sheen right now?” Charlie Sheen, the once-great film and television actor who’s been in the headlines at lot lately, has been spending the past week doing interviews full of his own brand of holier-than-thou swagger about his substance abuse issues. And I can only assume what McBride’s tweet was about was the interview he did with TMZ.com from the backyard of his estate in Los Angeles. At one point, he points to his house and says of his young sons, “They’re right in there somewhere. The kids are here, and that’s all that matters.” He also said that telling his kids not to take drugs would not help them stay drug-free and that one day he would tell them about his “epic” and “gnarly” drug days. Maybe someone in charge will read McBride’s tweet and question Sheen himself and get the kids out of his house. Of course, now that he’s been suspended from Two and a Half Men and his publicist has resigned, finding someone besides Sheen who’s in charge could be the biggest obstacle.
