Charlie Sheen Is Back on His HIV Medicine After Briefly Seeing a Quack in Mexco
Part Two of Charlie Sheen’s interview with Dr. Oz aired yesterday, and it got a little weird. In a pre-taped segment, he revealed that he’d been off his HIV meds for about a week. He said, quote, “Am I risking my life? Sure. So what? I was born dead. So that part of it doesn’t faze me at all. I told my mom on Day One that the disease picked the wrong guy.” He stopped taking the anti-retroviral drugs because he wanted to check out an alternative therapy from a really strange doctor in Mexico, who’s not licensed in the U.S. And that didn’t work out too well for him. But in his sit-down with Dr. Oz, he said that he’d just received word that his HIV levels became detectable again. So he’s back to doing things the traditional way. His rep says, quote, “Charlie is back on his meds. He tried a cure from a doctor in Mexico but the minute the numbers went up, he started taking his medicine.” Get more & see the video clip here.
Taye Diggs Called a Professional Snuggler But Wanted More than Snuggling
Sometimes a massage parlor really is just a massage parlor. And sometimes a professional snuggler is just there to snuggle. Tay Diggs found that out in September. According to Radar Online, Taye was at a New York restaurant and just happened to meet a 26-year-old woman named Lisa, who works for an online company called The Snuggle Buddies. Two days later at about 7 in the morning he texted her to request her “services”. He told her, quote, “Discretion is a must.” When she got there, he told her he was on molly, and he was under the impression they were going to have sex. She says, quote, “I’d assumed he knew the rules of snuggling. It’s a completely non-sexual thing.” But she did let Taye kiss her because he’s beautiful, of course, and then took off her bra because he wanted to see her breasts. Then he got naked and pleasured himself. Lisa stayed for about four hours, but says everything else was platonic. She says she went to the press because she found out after the fact that Taye has a girlfriend, and that’s not cool. Taye has been dating a model named Amanza Smith Brown since 2014. Get more here.
