While photos from the Celebrity Apprentice premiere party make clear that Gary Busey still loves to get down, Saturday Night Live was a little offbase when they suggested “firstname.lastname@example.org” would nod along with Charlie Sheen’s TV interview rants. Busey told People that he’s actually “praying” for his longtime buddy. “Charlie is in a tailspin. Charlie’s got to understand what the truth is. The beautiful thing about the truth is that it requires no questions.”
“I want Charlie to get up out of the mud and reclaim his life and I’m praying for him,” the Celebrity Rehab vet explained. “The advice I have for him is to look at himself and the truth in his heart, because what he’s doing is not true to his heart.” Hopefully Gary can show Charlie that one doesn’t have to give up incoherent interviews—and dancing next to stripper poles with a cigar in your hand—to embrace clean living. “Most people do think I’m difficult. That was 20 years ago. I’m giving with love. I’m really alive with love.” Maybe Gary’s journey will come up on Dr. Drew’s Charlie Sheen: Winning…Or Losing It? special tonight on VH1.
