If the rumors concerning Selma Blair and her role on FX’s Anger Management turn to fact, the actress’ relationship with Charlie Sheen has deteriorated well beyond the feud stage. A report at TMZ indicates the two are “at WAR (their capitalization, not mine)” and, in fact, Blair may be out of a job. At least if Sheen has his winning way. With that in mind, allow me to get this out of the way: so much for Sheen (and Blair) managing their anger, right? Bad jokes aside, it appears as if Sheen has a hard time getting along with, well, anyone for long periods of time.
Granted, in this case, it appears as if Blair started the mess by saying Sheen was “a menace to work with,” and that the actor has poor work habits. The report indicates she told this to the executive team behind the series, and, as is the Hollywood way, word got back to Sheen, which lead to the following predictable reaction from the actor:
But sources close to Sheen tell us the actor did more than just complain … he told everyone HE FIRED SELMA altogether — although it’s unclear how official it was.
Charlie then made it clear to “AM” honchos … if Selma shows up to set Monday — when the show is scheduled to shoot — he’ll refuse to work.
TMZ goes onto say that their sources indicate the bosses at FX are hoping this goes away. Oddly enough, the news about the Blair/Sheen blow up comes just six days after the actress posted the following on Twitter:
Thanks for a great day back @charliesheen . You looked pretty darn handsome.

I suppose it’s worth noting that Sheen did not respond to Blair’s tweet, and if the news of this fallout is true, it’s doubtful he will anytime soon. Whatever the case, I hope someone tell him to stop hitting the “Return” key when he wants to make a new line in a tweet. Twitter’s word wrap works quite effectively. An example:
don't forget MONDAY NIGHT ON FOX!! 9:30 pm! Anger Management!! come one come all! I'm counting on you America! c http://t.co/edF2hBkpsB
