The diagnosis came years ago, but Sheen said he’s speaking now to ease the stigma… and to put a stop to blackmail attempts from those threating to make the information public. Also, Mizzou makes more headlines, Geraldo Rivera’s reunion with his daughter following the Paris terror attacks, and extending the copyright on The Diary of Anne Frank.
