All of Charlie Sheen's talk of tiger blood, Adonis DNA, and winning makes for great tabloid and Twitter fodder, but it's more than a little shocking to the actor's friends, like Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Adrienne Maloof.
"Charlie's been our neighbor and our friend for quite some time," Maloof tells USA Today. "Yes, it's a little disturbing some of the things that he says, and I don't really know Charlie to be that way."
Little disturbing? The troubled actor's recent bizarre rants have developed a fan base of their own -- the self-described "unemployed winner" blinked and gained more than a million followers on Twitter. Adrienne's not one of them, but she insists there's no bad tiger's blood between the neighbors.
"I give him my support and love," says the petite business powerhouse. "He's really actually a wonderful person and I just don't understand this other side to him, and hopefully he works though this."

It is so seldom we get a glimpse at someone as caring and genuine as you seem to be. The world would be a better place, if all people with your status had the same values as you...money is nice to have, but most people with it, care little about how they protray themselves to others. You never act haughty, aggressive or insulting. You always are the voice of reason and look for the best in those around you. There is such a significant difference in those from old money and the ones trying to "be" with new money. Your family is one to be proud of and proud to be from. Hoping your kind and encouraging words can help your friend, Charlie to seek the help he needs. My heart breaks for his children and his parents.
Adrienne - you are the nicest person on your reality show...The other women pale in comparison, not much class compared to you. But don't let your kindness for others pull you down. Dysfunctional people are responsible for themselves only. Just be a guide. I like it when you tone down your looks to a more natural appearance.
Adrienne, You are looking fab! It just shows your compassion, you just don't jump on the the ship of criticism. You can relate to the person he is and not what his issues. Bravo for being a genuine person. Looking forward to you new season. Wish all the ladies the best, including the troublemaker. Hoping, she can identify her faults and work on them. I guess it brings drama ... Voice your opinion; as disfunctional as this group was sometimes, not too many others will make a good fit! You are all liked for one reason or another.
All the best!
