Artie Lange Released From Hospital

by at . Comments

Howard Stern's sidekick Artie Lange has been released from the hospital following an apparent suicide attempt last week, the New York Daily News reports.

The New York Post reported and police later confirmed that Lange stabbed himself nine times in the gut with a Wolfgang Puck kitchen knife a week ago.

Hoboken, N.J., Police Detective Mark Competello said that Lange's mother found him on the floor of his home January 2 and he was rushed to the hospital.

Competello said the 42-year-old comedian was unconscious when he arrived. Doctors cleaned the stab wounds and operated, and Lange has been released.

Earlier in the week, Howard Stern spoke out about his troubled friend on his Sirius XM radio program, but didn't reveal the reason for Lange's hospital visit.

Hopefully Artie Lange recovers quickly and fully.

"We all have our demons," Stern said. "Artie has given this show tremendous moments of great comedy. He's a tremendous contributor. He is a good man."

"Don't forget how great he is."

Addressing the matter a second time after the disturbing reason behind for Lange's hospitalization was revealed by the Post, Stern was livid over the leaked story.

Artie's family requested that the matter remain private and Stern obliged; Someone leaked the info to the Post, however, and his friend was understandably upset.


I'm waiting for you son


I believe Howard is being a little hypocritical as well as the entire staff. They seem to relish in other peoples misery but when it hit's close to home the main theme is concern and outrage at a news leak? How about a little fairness to those who have been on the other end of his insensitivity at hard times in their lives.


Get better Artie. Get back to the Stern show. We all love you! Best wishes from a ton of fans in Utah!


to be fair, i hope the Stern show runs bits about this, and makes fun or Artie just like they would any other celeb who tries to kill them self. To be honest im surprised Howard is so pissed about the news leaking out. He is the first to openly bash anyone when they fuck up.


I understand the depression you are experiencing. I fell to the level of not wanting to live since I was involved in a train crash in Florida. I don't think it ever goes away. But when you think about your family and what it does to them it is not just about you. Hopefully you will rise above the demons and just have a happy life. I don't think being on the stern show helps with you having to reveal too much of your inner thought. Be well my friend, I miss you and already you have contributed more than a life time of funny antics and your soulful feelings. Lov your work. And if you come back to Howard I hope people can appreciate the extent of depression and how it can run and ruin your life. Best of luck in the future.
