    As soon as I saw he was doing an interview, I figured that’s what it was for considering that blind item going around last week about a womanizing actor with HIV.

  2. So he is the one! The Daily Mail had an article last week about a Mystery star who slept with a bunch of people even though he is infected. But really, if you sleep with Charlie Sheen, you have to know you are taking a risk based on his past.

  3. msstargate says:

    Not surprising but very sad.

  4. Mr. Tran K says:

    Very sad about his health. Hope Charlie Sheen is in good spirits.

    • tvjunkie says:

      I hope he rots in hell if the reports are correct that he knew for 4 years and still slept with countless women without telling them.

      • kevstar says:

        You have sex with Charlie Sheen, you make him wrap it up or you take your chances. If these women knew they were having sex with him, shouldn’t they be equally responsible?

  5. Well this should be easier than trying to e-mail all the women he’s slept with.

  6. David4 says:

    I’m glad he is coming forward with this. The more people talk about it the more the stigma can be lifted on the crappy disease.

    However with modern medicine he should live a long and happy life, he just needs to be safer with sex. I hope this informs more people to the new treatments to prevent the spread, including PReP (Truvada) & PeP.

    It’s no longer a death sentence but people need to get tested on a regular basis and not be afraid.

    • Terri says:

      As a health care worker in an HIV program, I’d like to thank you for your extremely mature response. There are so many rude and disrespectful remarks regarding HIV that perpetuate the stigma and it deters people from getting tested and/or remaining in care.

    • Terri says:

      As a person employed in an HIV related field, I’d like to thank you for your extremely mature and helpful response. There are always so many rude and disrespectful comments regarding HIV on social media that continuously perpetuate the stigma. Unfortunately, this makes it very difficult to convince people to get tested routinely and/or remaining in care.

  7. AngelWasHere says:

    I guessed this was him when it just a blind item. Sad, but not surprising one bit. He looks sickly and old for his age. His partying lifestyle finally caught up to him.

  8. BrightLight says:

    When that blind item came out in the past couple of weeks, I knew it had to be Charlie because of that Wikileaks Sony email that’s been out for months that mentioned it. I mean the term “decades of debauchery” was pretty much a dead giveaway. Of course if you really sleep with 5,000 women like he’s claimed, where is the shock?
    As another poster previously mentioned it’s not surprising but it is sad especially for his family, including his young children who have no idea what HIV is. Still I’m glad he has the courage to admit it and not let the rumors keep going wild…even though the rumors and threats of lawsuits are pretty much why he’s finally revealing it anyway.

  9. GraceM says:

    I wonder if he’s the Hollywood stars that a porn star was HIV positive?

  10. Johnathan says:

    I guess one of his Goddesses has blessed him with this one.

    • tvjunkie says:

      That’s one hell of an assumption. He’s a heavy drug user and probably shared needles a lot. Could have easily gotten it that way. But go ahead and be sexist with your assumptions.

  11. Maybe tiger blood will help. says:

    Well, this is no surprise.

  12. Heroin use, no doubt. This is one of the most legendary cautionary tales. Maybe he can turn into some sort of activist for drug recovery?

  13. Jay says:

    Everyone is commenting on his sex life. Do we know yet that he contracted HIV through sex? Isn’t he also know to have been a drug abuser? I just hate that we automatically assume it’s sex related. I guess it is his reputation.

    • When you need something so obviously said, Captain Obvious will save the day! says:

      Captain Obvious! Haven’t seen you in a while. When did you get here?

    • Sterling says:

      Also it is really difficult for a male to catch it from a female during sex. It can happen but very very rarely. It is much more likely that he got it from drug use.

      • dcl33 says:

        You assume he only had sex with women.

      • David4 says:

        What do you mean by rare? There is a one in 550 chance of getting HIV from someone who is infected and without a condom. I have gay friends who one guy is positive and one is negative and they had unprotected sex. If you are aware you are positive than you can get meds to help prevent the spread of it. It’s not as easily spread as most people think. However with the amounts of drugs and sex Sheen himself has said to have had this news isn’t shocking.

      • grazelled says:

        There’s a 4 in 10,000 chance for a male to catch it from a female and 63 in 10,000 chance for anyone by using needle sharing according to the latest information by the CDC. Between males its 138/10k if you’re receiving or 11/10k.

    • LuckRanOut says:

      It’s 50/50 whether it was unprotected sex or shooting up. But either way, given his self-loathing behaviors, it was pretty much a certainty at some point.

  14. Spock22 says:

    Very sad…not entirely shocking but still very sad.

  15. ChicagoDan says:

    If the rumors were true that he’s known for four years, the timing would fit the 2011 meltdown on 2.5M. A real shame. It’s irresponsible to hide status when you know – even if undetectable. However, with his reputation, partners really could’ve had made safety choices as well. We are all responsible for the choices we make.

  16. Shawn says:

    Karma always has away of biting people who have no respect for others in the butt. i dont feel sad for him one bit. i feel sad for all the people he hurt

  17. abby says:

    oh man. not surprising but so sad.

  18. Stacy says:

    Removing the stigma of HIV is good, but who’s going to remove the stigma of Charlie Sheen? HIV didn’t make him have unprotected sex.

  19. I don’t doubt that its true, but I hope not, Hell, I like Charley. I’ve never met him but I like him any way.

  20. Larc says:

    Going to bed with Charlie Sheen and not expecting to catch something is a lot like putting your hand in a fire and not expecting to get burnt. Still sad, but no surprise.

  21. dj says:

    Hopefully, he takes the same meds as Magic Johnson…He’ll have a lot of years ahead of him

  22. Kathy Blake says:

    I’m taking Charlie Sheen to court OMG he made me take off the condom

  23. tahina says:

    Not bit surprised. La vida loca caught up with him. Sorry for his kids and did he have a wife? She better get help stat!

  24. John says:

    Very sad, he’s a talented guy.

  25. MFL says:

    This is sad and I feel sorry for him if that’s the case…but is it not illegal to knowingly infect other people? Could he be sued for this

  26. NotHardly says:

    So not “winning”……

  27. Vampie says:

    I read something similar in a Spanish site, that an known actor was infected with HIV but it was not disclosed yet due to the fact that the actor could have infected many women and they wanted to keep that very reserved, about the identity of the actor with HIV. So now it is very clear is Charlie Sheen. Well I mean look at the life he has had in the past:

    Promiscuous, sleeping with many women, mostly porn stars or prostitutes, drugs no wonder he caught AIDS. I wonder if he also slept with men too, is very possible knowing how Charlie Sheen is as a very promiscuous guy who loves SEX and drugs a lot. Poor the daughters he had with Denisse Richards, but Im glad she dumped that looser.

  28. Marita Rumph says:

    He got it from a transfusion of tiger blood. Seriously, this is not a shock but still I would not wish HIV on my worst enemy.

  29. dan says:

    Porn stars are tested so very often that I would be shocked if he got it from one of them. Herpes is another story which does make it much easier to contract sexually. If there was any guy in the world who had the power to temporarily shut down the porn industry you know it’d have to be Charlie…

    WINNING !!!

  31. Gailcimino says:

    I’m sorry you have this but I love your show early shows I watch them evernight. Your great good luck. Your fan. Gailcimino I on face book
