Just because Charlie Sheen's "Anger Management" is imploding isn't stopping FX from moving forward with another 10/90 sitcom deal, this one featuring Kelsey Grammer and Martin Lawrence. FX announced the series pickup on Wednesday (June 19) afternoon. The untitled project features Lawrence and Grammer as two Chicago attorneys from very different backgrounds who meet on the worst day of their life.

It seems like breaking bad news through texting is the new trend. First Katy Perry revealed that Russell Brand broke the news that he was filing for divorce via text message, and now an Anger Management source exclusively reveals to E! News that Selma Blair learned she was dropped from the show after receiving a text message from star Charlie Sheen. Though he doesn't really have the authority to make firing decisions, Sheen knows that the show, which received a 90-episode order from FX after its first season, can't go on without him, the insider says. But a source tells E! News exclusively that Blair, who departed the FX sitcom after reportedly complaining about Sheen to producers, "really had no problem »
Well, this is one way to tackle the tabloids. Charlie Sheen took to Twitter Tuesday to post a pic of his "Greatest Dad Award" amid reports claiming his ex-wife Brooke Mueller jeopardized her chances at regaining custody of the former couple's four-year-old twins by leaving Betty Ford Rehab Center. "On a grant from MIT at 41000' archeologists Pekk&Sheen discover what can only be described as ancient bitchen," the Anger Management star captioned the twitpic (whatever that means). According to TMZ, Mueller left Betty Ford last week and entered into a new treatment facility in Orange County. But new reports suggest the judge overseeing the 35-year-old socialite's custody »
You thought the onscreen drama was intense? It's nothing compared to to some TV show's behind-the-scenes drama! Anger Management is the latest series to find itself making headlines for its off-camera tension as Selma Blair found herself departing the FX sitcom after reportedly going to producers with complaints about star Charlie Sheen. "We wish her the very best," Lionsgate said in a statement, confirming her departure. Of course, Sheen is no stranger to famous feuds: CBS unceremoniously fired Sheen after he went on a weeklong rant about Two and a Half Men's creator, Chuck Lorre. But he isn't the only star who's found himself battling it out with his TV show! Most recently, »
Just when the “Community” creator was looking like the biggest ingrate working in primetime, Sheen roars back into the race for the win — if even half of what’s being reported about his role in axing Selma Blair from “Anger Management” is true.
The Blair affair seems to put the lie to all the talk of Sheen’s reformation after his spectacular exit from “Two and a Half Men” in 2011. The tiger blood appears to be boiling again, amid reports of persistent production delays on the Lionsgate TV sitcom because of Sheen’s erratic schedule. So much for the carefully crafted storyline that all Charlie really wants to do is work, and that “Anger Management’s” accelerated 90-episode back order from FX was just what the rehab doctor ordered.

In keeping with the short cycle of nostalgia that sees us rebooting franchises every couple of years, America is once again in the grips of a retro “Charlie Sheen meltdown” fad, in the wake of news that he had Selma Blair fired from his FX series Anger Management. Early indicators that we were reliving the heady, anything-goes days of 2011 began popping up late last week, after Sheen called Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham a “desperate guzzler of stagnant douche agua.” But such familiarly jazzy verse was just a tease for the full-blown Sheen revival currently sweeping the nation, in »
Looks like Charlie Sheen got the last laugh.
He reportedly threatening to walk from his own show unless producers fired Blair, and unlike his days on Two and a Half Men, Sheen has an ownership stake now. So his wish was granted.
In a statement Tuesday, producer Lionsgate said the actress won't be returning to the series, declining to elaborate. The company wished her "the very best" but issued no further statement.
Neither star's rep commented on Blair's departure, which comes while the show is about halfway through a 90-episode order from FX that it received after a generally successful first season.

Charlie Sheen clearly hasn't learnt much from his experience playing therapist Charlie Goodson on FX sitcom Anger Management - it was confirmed last night (June 18) that the winning one's comedy co-star Selma Blair has been booted from his latest show mid-season, with the pair's falling out and Blair's sudden departure necessitating last-minute rewrites.

Of course, this isn't the first time that Sheen's been caught up in controversy - back in early 2011, the star's (alleged) hard-living lifestyle saw him at odds with Two and a Half Men co-creator Lorre, labelling the veteran producer a "turd" and a "clown".
The feud spiralled out of control »

What do people think is going to happen when you work alongside Charlie Sheen? Selma Blair has officially been let go from the truly horrendous Anger Management after ruffling Sheen's feathers by complaining about his work ethic, according to multiple outlets. Sheen, an executive producer on the show and a volatile goblin who should not be entitled to constant appeasement and yet somehow is, apparently fired Blair in a text message and called her a "cunt." That's pretty lousy! And yet totally in keeping with how one might expect noted terrible human Charlie Sheen to behave. Anger Management, a very bad show, has aired 34 of its contractually mandated 100 episodes. »

Charlie Sheen got his wish with producers of "Anger Management" as co-star Selma Blair has been asked to leave. TMZ reported that Charlie became incensed when he learned Selma had allegedly discussed his work ethic on the flagging series for FX. At the 2012 summer TCAs press junket (television critics association), Sheen was asked about the ratings and FX making a decision to expand the order, and the pressure of that. Sheen said, "It doesn.t put any pressure on me. All that pressure.s on Selma. She handles it well. No. That.s something I can.t control. We.ve done the work, this section of it, and it.s really up to what the number decides, and that.s based on how many people have »
