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 may have moved on from Two and a Half Men , but he has apparently not moved on from TV-related drama. TMZ reported Monday that he had personally fired Selma Blair, his co-star in Anger Management , after he found out she complained to executives about how awful Sheen is to work with. He reportedly refused to shoot if she showed up on set, and last night Lionsgate made it official : "We are confirming that Selma Blair will not be returning to Anger Management and we wish her the very best," the studio announced in a statement.

In a statement Tuesday, producer Lionsgate says the actress won't be returning to the FX comedy. The company says it wishes her "the very best" but has no further comment.
Blair's departure comes while the comedy is about halfway through completing its 90-episode order from FX.
The actress's publicist didn't immediately respond to a request for comment. Sheen's manager, Mark Burg, declined comment, as did FX.
The sitcom represents Sheen's TV series comeback after he was fired from CBS' "Two and a Half Men" in 2011 after clashing with producers.
Sheen has an ownership stake in "Anger Management."
Blair played a therapist and colleague to Sheen's character on the show. Sunday is her 41st birthday. »
Charlie Sheen just can't avoid a little behind-the-scenes drama. The star's Anger Management costar, Selma Blair, has left the hit FX sitcom following a much-reported feud. "We are confirming that Selma Blair will not be returning to Anger Management and we wish her the very best," a rep for Lionsgate, which produces the show, said in a statement. According to TMZ, Sheen, 47, helped orchestrate the actress' sudden departure. The website reports that the volatile actor (who was fired from Two and a Half Men in 2011 [...] »
ABC dominated last week’s primetime ratings race in key demos behind the NBA Finals while NBC was a solid runner-up thanks to reality hits “The Voice” and “America’s Got Talent.”
Actually, sports and reality dominated the demo rankings in general, with only one scripted original — ABC’s “Mistresses” — among the week’s 25 highest-rated ad-supported programs in young adults.
CBS, meanwhile, continues to take its lumps in the early part of TV’s summer season as it is especially hurt by the lower ratings for repeats that all nets are seeing. The Eye has finished fifth or lower in adults 18-49 for three straight weeks, and its decision to start summer perennial “Big Brother” earlier this year — it bows next week — is looking better by the minute.
In a week jam-packed with scripted originals on cable, ABC Family had good news as “The Fosters” rose in its second episode »

I can’t help but feel it was inevitable Charlie Sheen’s FX comedy, Anger Management, would run into troubles behind-the-scenes and that Sheen would be at the center of them. Unfortunately for the series, any feud puts the 90-episode order in jeopardy. We’re only halfway through that order and, despite added exposure from airing episodes on Fox, ratings have plummeted since the initial 10-episode run. So what sort of trouble has Sheen got himself into this time? Apparently he’s trying to get his co-star, Selma Blair, fired. Ever since his own firing from Two and a Half Men, I can only roll my eyes at any kind of decision Sheen makes.
So what led Sheen to actively try and get Blair fired when it was he who pushed so hard to get her on the show in the first place? According to Deadline, all this drama started »

The Doctor! Guillermo del Toro! Vampire pilot for FX! Who Wouldn’T be all over this story? We’ve actually already told you a little about the del Toro vampire pilot The Strain, based on the trilogy of books he co-authored with Chuck Hogan (Prince of Thieves). If picked up, the showrunner would be our beloved Carlton Cuse (Lost, Bates Motel).
So, as the headline blares, the newest cast member is (one of) the Doctor(s). This particular Doctor is the newest to us, though I suspect he’s one of the oldest. It’s John Hurt, reuniting with his Hellboy director del Toro. Hurt’s castmates in include Corey Stoll (The Bourne Legacy, Midnight in Paris), Mia Maestro (Nadia in Alias) and Kevin Durand (Keamy in Lost). Here’s the press release, which includes a synopsis of the show:

Did Charlie Sheen fire Selma Blair from his comedy TV show Anger Management? The actor - who plays therapist Charlie Goodson in the comedy series - is furious with his co-star for allegedly complaining to executive producers that Charlie is too difficult to work with and is constantly late. According to TMZ, after Charlie discovered Selma - who portrays Dr. Kate Wales in the show - had made a complaint about him he spoke to bosses about his huge workload compared to the actress' and told them if she shows up for work today he will refuse to shoot.

The filming of "Anger Management" had been pleasantly uneventful to this point -- aside from some some Lindsay Lohan-related shenanigans, few reports of dustups on the set of the Charlie Sheen-fronted sitcom have emerged as it plugs away at fulfilling its 100-episode order.
The key word there is "had," though. TMZ reports Sheen and co-star Selma Blair are at odds -- so much so that Sheen claims he "fired" Blair and says he won't work if she shows up to the set Monday (June 17).
The trouble started, according to TMZ, when Blair complained to the show's producers about Sheen's work habits on the show, saying he was frequently late and didn't work very hard when he was there. Sheen got wind of Blair's gripes and went off, going so far as to say she was fired. (Sheen has a financial stake in "Anger Management," but veteran producer Bruce Helford »
CBS is sticking to its usual playbook when it comes to launching its fall schedule -- which means a whole lot of premieres during the first official week of the 2013-14 season.
This year, the Nielsen-measured season starts on Sept. 23, and that week will feature the premieres of all but two shows in the network's fall lineup. The outliers are the 27th edition of "Survivor" (Sept. 18), which typically starts a week before the rest of the schedule; and new comedy "We Are Men," which will start Monday, Sept. 30 in order to make room for an hour-long "How I Met Your Mother" premiere on Sept. 23.
CBS also has the Emmy Awards this year, and they will air Sunday, Sept. 22, a day before the season begins. The network also says its midseason drama "Intelligence" will debut on Feb. 24 -- it's sharing the 10 p.m. Monday spot with another new show, "Hostages," which »
