Goddess in the Doorway

As mentioned previously, I’ve been writing some cover stories for Playboy. Indeed, I have one out now: I interviewed Rachel Oberlin, better known as Bree Olson, even better known as one of Charlie Sheen’s “goddesses.” If you’d like to know more about Sheen’s sex life, his Patek Philippe watches, or his Apocalypse Now obsession, you can read the resulting piece on the Playboy website here (that particular page is JBSFW [just barely safe for work], I think, depending upon your workplace.)

If, however, you just want to know which Colonel Kurtz monologue in Apocalypse Now was creepily echoed by Charlie Sheen during his full-frontal publicity assault, I can tell you that here: it was Kurtz’s speech about the Vietnamese children getting their arms hacked off after being vaccinated by American soldiers. Or as Sheen employed the metaphor: “The run I was on made Sinatra, Flynn, Jagger, Richards–all of them–look like droopy-eyed, armless children.” Two and a half men, indeed.

    I understand the marketing reasons why the interview dealt mainly with Charlie Sheen but it is too bad a little more about Bree Olson was not included. I have met and chatted with her. She comes across as a smart, funny lady with lots of interesting stories. Some of those stories are just as interesting as her Charlie Sheen adventures. She has packed quite a bit of living into twenty-four years. Hopefully you, or someone else, will give her a chance to tell some of those stories in the future.

    Not safe enough for Caribou Coffee, apparently – their WiFi blocked access to your article!
