Charlie Sheen Wants to Find the Cure for HIV with the Help of Dr. Oz
The good doctor teased what we can expect from the actor’s upcoming appearance on his show on #WWHL.
Charlie Sheen will appear on The Dr. Oz Show next week to not only discuss his recent HIV diagnosis but to also take action. “Charlie, obviously, is suffering with his HIV, and he wants to chase the cure," Dr. Oz teased during his appearance on Watch What Happens Live Wednesday night. "We’re going to be taking some untraveled roads together looking for it."
Charlie revealed he is HIV positive in an interview with Matt Lauer on TODAY in November. During that interview, Charlie also said that he had engaged in unprotected sex with two people since he was diagnosed roughly four years ago, but it was "impossible" for him to have knowingly transmitted the virus to others. They had been informed of his diagnosis ahead of time and have been under the care of Charlie's physician Dr. Robert Huizenga, he said
Andy Cohen asked Dr. Oz if he thought Charlie's decision to have unprotected sex following his diagnosis was "irresponsible." “So I actually, with his permission, had one of the women with whom he’s been having unprotected sex on my show, and she’s a nurse. And she made the point where there had not been a case where a man with very low, undetectable levels of HIV had transmitted the virus," Dr. Oz said. "Now I still think it’s irresponsible to have sex if you have HIV without protection. That, I think, is a smart thing to do no matter what. But I must say, she thought about it. She certainly knew all the information. She made an informed decision, so it’s hard to blame him alone for that decision.”
Part 1 of Charlie's interview airs Monday, January 11 on The Dr. Oz Show.
