Charlie Sheen was hospitalized early Thursday morning due to abdominal pains. According to TMZ, the 'Two and a Half Men' star was partying hard with several porn stars into the wee hours of the morning.

And, now "sources" are putting it out there that Charlie Sheen was rushed to the hospital because of a hiatal hernia condition.

It's nothing new for the bad boy at CBS, who has been an utter atrocity for the past year and change. Ever since he threatened to kill his wife Brooke Mueller over Christmas in 2009, Charlie Sheen's life has been spiraling out of control.

A source also told TMZ that a drug dealer came to Charlie Sheen's home with a briefcase full of cocaine during this epic party. It amazes me that Sheen's exploits are not just publicly documented, but covered like sporting events.

And yet the CBS network sits by and allows this to go on while continuing to employ Sheen - the star of TV's highest rated sitcom .  The prized show sees ratings spikes whenever Sheen is in the news for wrong reasons.

Charlie Sheen's story is not just apalling, it's pathetic. It's not even sad because he's a 45-year-old man who chooses to lead a life of self destruction, and CBS exploits his situation for ratings. He has become a freak show. Many people tune into this show because Sheen is a real-life disaster and how he looks these days. His exploits have become a running joke at this point.

Apparently, some of the brass at CBS are concerned about Sheen's drug problems. It's too little and far too late. Where were they a year ago when he held a knife to Brooke Mueller's throat?
