We try to avoid celebrity gossip at Videogum, AS YOU KNOW. Our coverage is mostly limited to Michelle Trachtenberg’s untimely fainting while hosting a party at the Sunglass Hut, and Hugh Laurie’s magical Burger King Gold Card. i.e. We only cover the stories that MATTER. Which I’m sure you’ll agree is the case with this morning’s headline:
CHARLIE SHEEN APOLOGIZES FOR CALLING DENISE RICHARDS THE N-WORD.
Ha ha ha. WHAT?
Charlie Sheen is apologizing for a three-year-old voicemail that ex Denise Richards made public.
The voicemail included a curse-filled rant from Sheen calling Richards – the mother of their two young daughters Sam, 4, and Lola, 3 – a “f–king c–t” and a “f–king n—-r.”
In response, the Two and a Half Men star said in a statement released Wednesday, “I deeply apologize by my choice of words to all I have obviously offended; especially to Tony Todd, an African-American, who was my best man at my first two weddings.”
I mean, that sounds like a real DOOZY of a voicemail, but I still don’t understand what Charlie Sheen is talking about. Am I google image searching the wrong Denise Richards?
Whatever, it’s all good now. In these types of situations the most important thing to do is to publicly apologize to your one black friend, because he’s the one who proves you’re not racist. Done and done.
