Charlie Sheen was right. When we asked him if Two and a Half Men would be shut down for some time, Sheen told us it was "all crap."

Now Sheen's even got a time frame to go back to work: his rep tells E! News the actor is eyeing a return to the set by the end of the month. "I understand that is what is being targeted," says publicist Stan Rosenfield.

Well, that was one quick "rehab."

Production on Two and a Half Men temporarily halted last week when the actor announced he would seek treatment for substance abuse (one show source told E! Online's Awful Truth that the crew "was really pissed" about Sheen's hijinks affecting their livelihood). The treatment has been taking place at his home instead of a more tradition rehab center.

Yesterday, Sheen texted us and told us to "believe nothing" in the news when it comes to reports about him and his partying.

"I will never speak about any of this as long as I'm alive. You're all gonna have to keep towing the same redundant line, guessing wrong," he said. 

He then suggested the focus on his situation was overblown and that we should be focusing instead on the political unrest in Egypt.

"BTW, two wars are in an endless state of sorrow. Egypt about burned to the ground, and all you people care about is my bullsh-t....?"

Sheen called it "pathetic" that the media care about his extracurricular activities.

"Shame shame shame," he said.

We wished the troubled actor well and told him people really do just want to see him get healthy and happy and return to work.

"Absolutely I see that," he said. "For that I am grateful."

Sheen also released a more polished statement last night via Rosenfield, thanking his cast, crew, producers and fans for their "concern and support."
