And the texts keeping coming.

A defiant Charlie Sheen texted ABC's Good Morning America today, insisting he's 100 percent sober and is still planning to turn up for work next week on Two and a Half Men. This despite the fact that CBS and Warner Bros. Television shut down production for the rest of the season after the actor slammed the show's creator, Chuck Lorre—what appears to be the last straw in an ongoing, bitter feud.

Here's what Sheen had to say this morning.

In a series of texts, the 45-year-old actor slammed Lorre as a "clown" and "loser." He also repeated what he told Radar Online yesterday—that he's in talks with HBO about headlining his own show called Sheen's Corner at $5 million per episode (think this is news to HBO execs?) and that he is willing to take a drug test on camera to prove he's clean.

Tough luck, says a source close to the production. Even if Sheen shows up, there won't be anything for him to do. Our Two and a Half Men insider says the set will be closed for the rest of the season and no one—Sheen included—will be getting paid. No determination has been made on whether TV's No. 1 comedy will remain shuttered beyond the four episodes left in the current season.

Yesterday, Sheen called into syndicated radio's The Alex Jones Show from the Bahamas, where he has been vacationing with ex-wife Brooke Mueller, new girlfriend Natalie Kenly and porn star Bree Olson.
