Charlie Sheen Brushes off Anti-Semitic Remark by Claiming Jewish Mother

Nadene Goldfoot
Charlie Sheen has just professed to being Jewish.  He just came out with the fact that his mother, Janet Templeton, former art student,  is Jewish but he doesn't know who her father was.  His 3rd ex-wife, Brooke Mueller, is also Jewish, he said. She's the mother of the twin boys.   He never thought of using these facts when he was mad at the writer of his program and called him Chaim, his Hebrew name, instead of the name he is known by.  For that angry incident he was thought to be rather anti-semitic.  He was very angry with him at the time and most likely was trying to give him a slur of some sort by his action.  I'm sure Charlie's  not a practicing Jew, or he wouldn't have reacted that way. 

Charlie was born Carlos Irwin Estevez on September 3, 1965 in New York.  His father is Romon Gerardo Antonio Estevez, better known as Martin Sheen, a well known actor.  His grandfather was Francisco Estevez,  born in Spain and his grandmother was Mary Ann Phalen from Ireland.  They were a Catholic family. 

Charlie has been gaining a lot of notoriety as his TV show, Two and a Half Men, has been cancelled due to his wild lifestyle.  A psychologist has gandered an opinion that it is more likely due to a possible bipolar disorder  than his excesses of drinking and drugging right now.  Charlie claims to have cured himself.
