Currently Booming: Former Co-star Jenny McCarthy Blasts Charlie Sheen After HIV Disclosure

To say that Hollywood has had a mixed reaction to Charlie Sheen's admission of being HIV+ would be an understatement. So many have crossed paths with the fallen star, leading I'm sure, to many having at least momentary concern about their own health. Some have expressed support and concern for Sheen but many others, including ex-girlfriends and former coworkers, such as Jenny McCarthy, are lashing out.

McCarthy addressed the topic on her radio show this week, saying, "Now being on ‘Two and a Half Men’ myself, I feel like in playing a love interest, you would think there would be some type of, I don’t want to say criminal issue, but I don’t even know how to feel about that. I was like, ‘Wait a second, if I have to be upfront about a herpe, how could you not be upfront about HIV?’ I look back and I’m like, ‘OK, that would have been some valuable information.’ I mean look how many people have played his love interest on the show."

Sheen has said that he was diagnosed in 2011 so there is the possibility that while working with McCarthy he really had no idea that he was HIV+ but still, she makes some pretty valid points. If cold sores legally need to be disclosed then it seems more than fair that an incurable disease would need to be as well.

Do you think that actresses that have worked closely with Sheen over the last few years will try to take action against him?
