During a morning phone call March 4 to the Access Hollywood Live show, our Charlie told hosts Billy Bush and Kit Hoover, “My mum – actress Janet Templeton – is Jewish” Carlos Irwin Estevez went on “So I guess that would make me Jewish and my children Jewish. And Brooke Mueller, my ex-wife, is Jewish. So I guess I should have rolled that out, too.”
A perplexed Bush told Charlie, “You’re getting accused of anti-Semitic remarks – you might want to say, ‘By the way, I’m Jewish!’ “
Our Charlie responded, “I know, I know – stupid me. I just got caught sleeping, caught napping, which is rare for me. Anywho … But I’m proud of it. There you have it.”
Charlie, 45, star of the hit TV comedy “Two and a Half Men,” which has been suspended for the rest of this season and may be canceled, lashed out last month at the Anti-Defamation League following its charge that Charlie had exhibited “borderline anti-Semitism” in referring to his producer, Chuck Lorre, by his Hebrew name, Chaim Levine. Charlie has demanded an apology from the ADL.
Our Charlie, has a long history of drug and alcohol abuse, that he’s still ranting is testament – he believes – to his inherited genetic superiority, Go Charlie Go!
