Artie Lange Suicide Attempt Alleged By Page Six

by at . Comments

The New York Post's Page Six is reporting this morning that the abrupt hospitalization of Artie Lange last weekend came after a suicide attempt.

Lange, a comedian and Howard Stern sidekick, has not spoken publicly since. Stern alluded to, but did not read the Page Six report Thursday.

From the report, posted early this morning:

"Troubled comic Artie Lange was hospitalized Saturday after stabbing himself nine times in an apparent suicide attempt, sources told The Post."

"Lange's frantic mom called 911 Saturday morning after she entered his Hoboken apartment and found the bloodied funnyman, a law-enforcement source said."

"Lange sustained six 'hesitation wounds' and three deep plunges."

"A source close to Lange's management team confirmed that the Howard Stern sidekick stabbed himself, adding that his mom had come to visit him that day to drop off food. Surgeons managed to save Lange despite heavy bleeding."

At first, an obviously shaken-up Stern said he would read the Artie Lange story, then changed his mind several times before deciding not to.

"I'm sorry. I just feel sick about this, I don't know what to do," he said.

Stern talked about the troubled Lange for about 15 minutes. He referred to Lange's troubles with substance abuse (the cause of his absence from the show since early December) and reminisced about his early appearances on the show.

At times, Howard Stern almost sounded like he was eulogizing his sidekick, which he realized, adding, "I don't want this to sound like a eulogy."

Get well soon, Artie.

Oh and BTW everyone !!!!!!Isn't it kinda funny how everything on our planet is heading in a negative direction..and everyone thinks there isn't any reason for it...well maybe there is ...How about GREED , HATE ,DECEPTION, SEX(which i love,but can see how it's destroying people) and many more...These are all just words that we see in our everyday life ...so by that standard...if there is no such thing as good and evil forces..Why then if we all understand the basic meaning of these words is everything heading toward chaos along with the acceptance of all these everyday things that I have just mentioned.WE are all getting slapped in the face with this and everyone just says ...Interesting.........WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!

Stern is a pathetic scumbag who feeds off the misery of other people just like jerry springer and maury povich..Artie was a true comedian before he got himself mixed up with Stern ..Stern saw him and he is a smart man obviously....And laughed along with all of his degenerate listeners as Artie was obviously on his downward spiral...Ratings are good !!!Hey Artie why don't you go out to the yada yada yada and cover the story for our show btw heres an extra 2 grand for your partying needs!!! EF stern I'm glad he's off the airwaves....I'm just sorry his ratings on satelite might get better because of this terrible thing...

Yes it is hitting close to home, artie you would joke and laugh at an a-hole for what you did and why with so much to live for. maybe deep depression is not about how much money you have or how much success and love you have from fans to keep you happy but, screw you Artie you fat pig,cause you would make lite and laughter, and saying it was just a joke after saying it does not work in my book, I've been working on success for myself for many years and I would be very happy a appriciate life

I agree with bill, Artie needs to move on and get away from Howard Stern and his gang. They are all low lifes and beneath him.
