    1st?

    Of course whenever we discuss Artie, there is always the possibility of Rehab. However, as an avid listener, I believe that Artie is really sick. He has such poor eating habits, and he simply does not take care of himself properly. His body is rebelling against him. I love cuddlymuffin (as George Takei calls him) and I hope he is on the mend.

    I think Artie downgrades Sterns show. He isn't even funny. Stern, I think you need to get rid of him.



  4. 4

    I think he did.
    First!



  5. 5

    He was in Regina, SK Sunday night…he played at Buffalo days (our exhibition)



  6. 6

    now that we have all registered… can we pleeeeeeeeeease try to lay off the whole "FIRST!" thing? especially when most people who write it are usually the 30th+ post. its soooo annoying.

    i don't know…

    no way!!!



  9. 9

    Firsty first first



  10. 10

    They said he'd be back for the story Monday, I don't think rehab lasts only a week. He wouldn't suddenly cancel all his gigs and the Bob Saget roast for it.. probably just sick.



  11. 11

    He should have been loooooong ago!

    Re: Syddney – please grow up.

    who………….what……………huh??………….who the hell are these ppl?



  14. 14

    OR is Howard actually get married this week and Artie is at the wedding? the show is on a 2 week vacation, just enough time to get married and go on a honeymoon



  15. 15

    I hope so. I love Artie and want him to learn how to get healthy and stay that way.

    What are you guys talking about?? The Stern Show running 'best of' this week because they are all on vacation this week. Did I miss something here or did no one else pick up they are just running clips?



  18. 18

    Oh christ. Plz don't die Artie. :O(



  19. 19

    Not a clue where Artie went. And I don't really care to be honest.



  20. 20

    I hope Artie's ok! ;)

    he's not in rehab and he's not MIA. How long has it been since anyone has seen him? A couple days at most.



  23. 23

    dumby, dumb, ass –> jennbrown8



  24. 24

    I thought I saw Artie waddling around his shore house this weekend… don't think it's rehab.



  25. 25

    Re: klmnjaro

    Howard 100 news is not on vacation, have you not been listening to their reports?



  26. 26

    Artie is in Hoboken living it up while all you fools speculate, we all know he is nasty but he's funny as all hell. Stop all hating on Artie he needs Jesus!

  27. lolia says – reply to this


    27

    I though Stern was on vacation all week, so I didn't bother tuning in. Are you sure you're not listening to a rerun????



  28. 28

    I think he's MIA - let's hope it stays that way!



  29. 29

    MIA?? They're on vacation.. What the fuck are you talking about?
    I guess the whole show is MIA.



  30. 30

    Not sure why you may think he's missing? pretty sure he was on the show last thursday and for some god for saking reason they are off this week. but rehab, probably not seriously he's just so unhealthy.



  31. 31

    I love Artie, but I think he's just being LAZY!! And I'm very suspicious that Howard & Beth got married!!! He WAS talking about getting his "B" tat last week. And they never announced that they were on vacation AGAIN this week. I'm just saying…………..



  32. 32

    Well last week I swear to God there was something going on. Howard was annoyed with him and he rambled more than usual, nothing had any point and he kept losing the plot, again, more than usual. I think he's been using for a long time and taking the Subutex to come down. Hell, he calls in sick so often, not to mention falls asleep there's no point in pretending Artie is coping, his increased mentions of Dana (his former girlfriend) also make me think he is using/depressed.

  33. SuzyP says – reply to this


    33

    The show is on vacation this week, has the news said something about him being MIA???? I love Artie!



  34. 34

    First, the Stern Show is on a one-week, not two-week vacation.

    Second, Artie's not a part of the family/inner circle that will be attending/attended Howchie and Beth0's private wedding (assuming it's this week and wasn't last month).

    Third, either Artie got all stressed about his scary book and OD'd — which isn't out of the realm of possibility given how *animated* and obviously high he was in the 3 weeks before this vacation and given his history of getting hooked on heroin when he was stressed about Beer Ball (his movie) –

    OR/and Artie finally figured out that he needs rehab. He never went when he got off heroin; he just used (and later abused) Subutex and never got to whatever issues he was medicating himself to escape. The fact that his drug usage affected the Afghanistan/Middle East shows (he got loaded on Valium and was almost arrested) AND THE STERN SHOW for the last 3 weeks might have been the final wake up call his family needed to get him into intervention.

    As any longtime listener knows, almost every time Artie's been *sick* it was drug related.



  35. 35

    This is a classic radio stunt. They are simply on vacay and will return in a week or two. Enjoy the 'best-of's'….



  36. 36

    The show is vacation AGAIN. I'm guessing Howard and Beth O. are getting married!



  37. 37

    It's Beer League, not Beer Ball!



  38. 38

    Shamela is a dumb cunt



  39. 39

    They've been running "Sirius So Far" for this week…they're on vaca and alsos clearly says it on the Sirius site



  40. 40

    Thanks for posting this.

    SOMEONE FIND ARTIE LANGE!!!!!! FAT MAN COME HOME!!



  41. 41

    first of all … im sick of one and two week vacations it's bad enough they have off all fridays. Second i think the beer ball comment was supposed to be a pun on the real title beer league.. third i hope artie is in rehab i think he probably got sick from all the drugs and alcohol possibly od'd and had no choice but to go to rehab and lastly i hope howard and beth o did get married its about damn time…

    Another thing besides the drug abuse lately is this "survivor guilt" he has about his father, and not being there to hold the ladder, waaaa. Both he and Howard make me sick with their constant whining about their daddy issues. The only one who has any legitimate right to complain about their father is Robin, yet she's the only one who never, ever mentions it truly seems to enjoy her life..



  44. 44

    Please… he's performing at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods this upcoming Saturday…



  45. 45

    He is at Fat Camp….Seriously, he is in Rehab!!!



  46. 46

    Re: starssaygoodbye
    WRONG. Nice try at misinformation.
    Artie cancelled both of the shows this weekend. He had Levy post that they're cancelled — without explaining why — at the Miserable Men site and at SFN.
    If the shows aren't cancelled, that'll be news to Bob Levy and the rest of the guys who were planning to make some money — and now can't since Artie pulled out.



  47. 47

    Yep, rehab.



  48. 48

    Re: iocus

    What he says.



  49. 49

    Sham! Miss you!

    I hope that Artie is alright… I do enjoy him on the show, and I think that he is a genuinely nice guy.



  50. 50

    I hope he does go to rehab he has some major issues.



  51. 51

    I love, love, love Artie and hope that he's well!!!



  52. 52

    Maybe he's come to realize the being healthy is good and it could be a sign he wants Dana back?



  53. 53

    Sterns a PIG,
    Artie's a HOG!!



  54. 54

    artie rules..hope he gets to feeling better.



  55. 55

    I LOVE ARTIE!!
    I HAVEN'T LISTENED THIS WEEK, BUT I HOPE HE'S OKAY.
    AND FOR THOSE WHO THINK ARTIES DOWNGRADES THE SHOW, FUCK OFF!! HE'S THE BEST IT WOULDN'T BE THE SAME IF HE WAS GONE, EVEN WHEN HE'S JUST SLEEPING ON THE MIC

    CINDY



  56. 56

    I think he is in rehab….



  57. 57

    Re: Shamela – HI SHAMELA!!! I didn't know you were in here too !!!



  58. 58

    Artie is the best part of the Stern show these days. Howard is only concerned about finishing up his contract and getting on with his fancy new lifestyle. Screw all the hanger ons that use the hell out of Artie because he is messed up emotionally and physically. Levy and all the other idiots (Sal, Richard, the killers of comedy…) can learn to fend for themselves and quit feeding off of Artie's fame and fortune. Artie needs to learn how to say NO to all of the losers that keep borrowing money from him and abusing his friendship. Let the guy get well.



  59. 59

    I think they are just on break?



  60. 60

    Howard 100 News reported that Artie blew off Bob Saget's roast in L.A.. Do you know something P.P.???? I think he was just sleeping off a calzone and Jack bender, but I wish he was in rehab. Don't die, Artie.



  61. 61

    Artie Lange = Live Lard

    Do they have rehab for that?



  62. 62

    My senses tell me that Howard is getting married and that's why the show is on best of mode… If Artie was in rehab or sick, the show still would be on. This definitely wouldn't be the first time, trust me. Booyah!



  63. 63

    Shamela, I heard u wanted to fuck Perez in his tight balloon knot? xD



  64. 64

    He lives down the street from me and I used to see him at least once a week getting coffee. I haven't seen him in a long time. Perhaps he is in rehab, or he finally quit (which would be terrible). Howard, what's going on?

    65

    It would be hilarious if he is in rehab…what a fat mess he is.



  66. 66

    I love Artie but hate the fact that Stern is on Vacation again. It seems he just got back from his 4th of July break. Argh.



  67. 67

    This happens all the time. If you are a true listener, you would know this. He probably has a cold and didn't come in. He gets sick often b/c he doesn't take care of himself! He is not off to rehab, I am sure of it.



  68. 68

    Jesus, these stupid fucks that keep saying "they are on vacation!" "he's not MIA" need to fucking read. Yes, the show is on vacation this week BUT Artie canceled all of his scheduled appearances and bailed out of going to see the Boss. Anyone that knows the show knows that some serious shit had to go down for Artie to miss Bruce. Artie did mention before the break that he was waiting for some test results to come back and I think this may have something to do with that. On SFN, Levy's wife has said it should be hitting the news soon on what is happening so it has to be substantial. She also noted that his Mom and sister are fine so it's not a family situation. I would bet that if it's not rehab (and why wait until Monday to let the cat out of the bag…but then again, Howard likes to spill the dirt on the show and will cockblock anyone else like Howard 100 from doing so.) it has to be something to do with his current state of health: physical and/or mental. I wouldn't be surprised if he had a heart problem at this point. Years of drug abuse (heavy coke abuse), smoking, drinking and obesity will take a toll on anyone's heart at this point. Either that or his liver is fucked. Rehab just doesn't seem to fit. I would think the main stream press would have picked it up by now.



  69. 69

    Dang that sucks if he is in rehab. Artie is the main reason i like listening everyday. I did sense he changed a little bit after returning from the uso trip…hmmm Maybe howard is getting married?
    _
    Why does it seem they are taking a bunch of time off lately..jeez we only get a show 4 days a week



  70. 70

    Artie is in Re-Hab
    Arizona



  71. 71

    They are on vacation because Howard got married



  72. 72

    Re: blahfrickinblah
    Levy's "wife" is a stalker groupie who likes to pretend that Howard and Artie are now her close pals. She hounded Bob on the SternFanNetwork, for God's sake! He's too dim-witted to realize how scary she is. And they're no "friends" of Artie to be begging him to do stand-up at their loser club on his vacation because they're broke!
    So far, nothing she said is true. We know as much about what's going on with Artie as she does.

    its "best of" week… it isn't like its the first time they've ever done it



  74. 74

    We love Artie!! Hope he is well & taking care of himself & finally learning to say NO to everyone who always wants something from him….If Howard & Beth are getting married, MAZEL TOV!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can't wait to hear all the updates when they return.



  75. 75

    I sure hope he is!!! He is the best part of the show - we need him healthy!!!



  76. 76

    Who cares about Beth & Howard's wedding?! Let's get more details on where Artie is! Maybe he OD'ed?



  77. 77

    Kinda fishy for the Howard Stern Show to take the entire week off and it not be a Jewish holiday. Definitely not Kosher.



  78. 78

    Re: Shamela – Too bad I work at Foxwoods and it isn't cancelled. Nice try being nasty…

    Artie lives in my building, and I usually see him all the time. He has not been around for a while. When he is here, he is usually nice to everyone, but he did get really big. Oh well, three words…Stamps.com



  81. 81

    I'm gay, folks



  82. 82

    You'd be wise not to push me.

    You've been warned.



  83. 83

    And…..it's confirmed.
    He's in rehab.
    Good luck, Artie.



  84. 84

    Who cares? Stern is old news…wait until the merged Sirius XM listeners get a listen to Opie and Anthony!
