Maybe it’s because Sheen’s version of the story isn’t true. Ryder, now 40, has always maintained that her stage name is taken from Mitch Ryder, a musician her father was listening to when her agent called and asked her how she wanted to be credited in “Lucas.” So either Sheen is trying to re-write history or Ryder really was convinced to change her name after the coincidence that her father was listening to a record by Mitch Ryder & the Detroit Wheels when her agent contacted her.
Ryder wasn’t the only topic during his “CenterStage” appearance. Sheen, promoting his new FX comedy series, also talked about his ouster from “Two and a Half Men” last year. Regarding his very public bashing of the show’s creator, Chuck Lorre, Sheen admitted, “A lot of it was my fault, a lot of it was their fault. They went into my personal space, you know? And then my personal space might have been not the most private place in the world,” he added, in reference to his drug-induced meltdown. “It got in the way of work. I like to think that I didn’t get fired, I got traded for a player to be named later” – who became Ashton Kutcher.
