Charlie Sheen 'in talks for reality TV series'


The actor has had a troubled few years, which saw him sacked from his lucrative role on Two and a Half Men due to excessive drug use and verbally attacking producers, engage in bizarre rants and most recently reveal he had been diagnosed with HIV.

Since opening up about his health issues earlier this year, Charlie has been making moves to get his career back on track. As well as shooting new film Nine Eleven and becoming the brand ambassador for condom company Lelo Hex, there’s also rumours he could soon be starring in his own reality TV series.

Sources say the show will be centred on living with HIV and his life in general.

"He's met with various producers. He'd really open up and allow the cameras inside his world,” the insider told Us Weekly magazine.

The news comes after British reality star Jess Impiazzi, who Charlie is allegedly romancing, hinted that the Hollywood actor’s team had approached her about appearing in a TV show.

Speaking to Britain’s Daily Star newspaper Jess said she might be heading Stateside to work alongside dad-of-five Charlie in the near future.

"They've been talking to me about doing a reality show with Charlie over in America," she revealed.

"They've been giving me some ideas. One was doing something along the lines of Nanny 101 which would see me being the nanny. That would be hilarious because I've never looked after kids and I know that I'd be pretty useless with them. They'd probably tie me up or something. But that was the funny idea we had and it sounds good."

Charlie and Jess met at the recent Lelo Hex launch party in London, and were spotted taking in the sights of the British capital not long after. Charlie denied the romance rumours though, saying his HIV-positive status had prevented any possible relationship.
