Two and a Half Men was arguably one of the most popular American sitcoms ever made. The show managed to last for 12 seasons from 2003-2015. The series made headlines after the main character Charlie Harper, played by Charlie Sheen, left the show after the actor had a feud with the executive producer. Although many thought it would mean an end to series, they were wrong and the lovable Ashton Kutcher came to replace him.
Throughout the 12 years of production, there were hundreds of female characters. Charlie, Alan and Walden each had numerous girlfriends, but Charlie’s list was definitely the longest. Of course, Charlie was not the best or most faithful boyfriend. In the scene of Charlie’s funeral, all 50 of his past lovers showed up, only because they were hoping to ‘spit on the body.’
Although the show’s main characters are of course, the two (and a half) men, it wouldn’t have been the same without the multiple female characters who came in and out of the beach house. A show solely about two brothers would have quickly gone dull without the women of the show. The series was truly driven by the female stars, who helped create moments of comedy, drama and sometimes a bit of insanity. The two brother’s relationships with the women in the series helped the audience get a better understanding of the many layers of Alan and Charlie. They helped us see them at their best, and their worst… but usually the latter.
If it weren’t for the ladies, then who would have been there to put Alan and Charlie in their place?
If you are wondering where the many women of Two and a Half Men are today, then look no further. Keep reading to find out what your favorite TAAHM girls are up to…
