It turns out Charlie Sheen is to blame for Selma Blair's exit from "Anger Management." Sort of.

On "The Tonight Show" on Sept. 11, Sheen told Jay Leno that his "Anger Management" character needed spicing up and apparently that meant the end of Blair's character.

"One of our primary characters, Selma Blair, who played Kate, was written out because (the show) was not about our relationship, and the problem was too many people were still excited about the 'Two and a Half Men' character and thinking the 'Anger Management' character was a little dull," Sheen told Leno. "So, that is not the case anymore.

"She leaves and (my character) is circling the drain. So it's really fun to watch and hella fun to play."

And not exactly a tough acting job. Sheen has waged a well publicized battle with drug and alcohol abuse in the past.
