CHARLIE Sheen wants to make a reality show about living with HIV.

Seven months after the 50-year-old actor revealed he is HIV positive, Charlie is ready to tell his story and really "open up".

Speaking to US Weekly, a source said Charlie wants the show to be about, "his life in general," adding: "He's met with various producers. He'd really open up and allow the cameras inside his world."

Charlie was once one of the highest paid actors on television with the sitcom 'Two and a Half Men', but his reign came to an end after his erratic behaviour, disparaging comments about the series' creator Chuck Lorre and drug use forced studio bosses to terminate his contract.

In Charlie's final season on the show, he was earning a staggering $1.8 million an episode.

Since his career meltdown and subsequent HIV announcement Charlie has been trying to get his life back on track and recently said that telling the world about his diagnosis was "like being released from prison".

He said: "It was like being released from prison ... and we unearthed the stepping stones to a rubicon of change."

However, the star regrets not being "more involved" in his children's lives.

Charlie - who has Cassandra, 31, with his ex-partner Paula Profit, daughters Sam, 12, and Lola, 11, with his former wife Denise Richards and seven-year-old twins Bob and Max with his ex-spouse Brooke Mueller - admits he has many regrets about his past but insisted he is trying to make up for his mistakes.

He said: "I regret not using a condom one or two times when this whole thing happened. I regret ruining 'Two and a Half Men'. I regret not being more involved in my children's lives growing up ... But, we can only move forward from today, and they wouldn't call it the past if it wasn't."
