Is Chuck Lorre writing a tell-all book about his ordeal with Charlie Sheen?
The Two and a Half Men creator hinted at such in the vanity card following Monday's episode — which aired hours after he, Warner Bros. TV and Sheen reached a settlement in the actor's $100 million lawsuit over his firing.

Likening himself to an "unwilling contestant in a reality show," Lorre wrote that he "pretty much hated every second of it" and kept praying for it to end.
"But it did not. Somewhere along the way, something inside me died," he continued. "Anyway, now, suddenly, I'm being told that the reality show's been cancelled. Apparently, it was just one of those things that somehow got out of control. Sorry. Whoops. Live and learn. Moving on. Game over. And that's fine. I am so good with that. Yes, please, let's all move on. There's just one problem. That thing inside me that died? It walks at night. It's angry. It's hungry. And worst of all ... it's writing a tell-all book."

Details of his settlement with Sheen were not released, but Sheen will reportedly get $25 million out of his contract and must drop all of his legal claims.
The actor was fired from Men
in February after making numerous rants against Lorre, Warner Bros. and CBS when the show did not resume production following a hiatus to allow Sheen to enter rehab.

Sheen has backtracked on his rants lately, saying on The Tonight Show
that he was out of control and would've fired himself too. He also appeared at last week's Emmy Awards
to wish his replacement Ashton Kutcher
and the Men
crew well on the new season.
