| Filed under: Howard Stern

wenn841522.jpg

As we mentioned yesterday, speculation had reached a fever pitch (amongst diehard fans of the show) that one of Howard Stern's sidekicks, Artie Lange, had checked himself into rehab.

Well, it's true.

Lange's publicist has confirmed today that he has checked himself into an intensive outpatient rehab program.

A source says Artie is making "his health a priority."

Lange also canceled his stand-up shows this weekend in Connecticut.

Get well soon!

    Good for you, Artie. Good luck!

    I'd feel better if it was an inpatient, six-week program, but it's a step in the right direction.

    Take care of yourself, Artie.

    Artie, I work for Weight Watchers. We can help!



  15. 15

    Well it's a step in the right direction. He should be doing in-patient, but hey… at least he's trying. Good luck, Artie!!!



  16. 16

    My, he looks HORRID! And under all that weight, he's a pretty handsome man. Yeah, I remember when he was much, much thinner.

    Artie's the funniest thing on that show. I hope he gets control of his addiction. They need him.



  17. 17

    do you know what he is in rehab for?



  18. 18

    I just don't understand… like I said in the last post, he hasn't canceled his show, at least as of yet. I work IN THE THEATER at Foxwoods, and we are still selling tickets…



  19. 19

    Thanks God! Don't be a dumbfuck, Artie…stay in there and get better.:)

    The Howard 100 news updates are not even mentioning it.



  21. 21

    Get Well soon, Artie!!!!!!!!! We love you!!



  22. 22

    I knew it…REHAB!!!! What do I win????? Yeah, it was obvious, lately he has just been so run down in the monring, which translates to late nights. He is eating sugar crap like it's going out of style, just so he can stay awake, I imagine. Sugar, caffeine, still tired??? Translation? Addict….



  23. 23

    I LOVE Artie!!!! Good luck sweet thing!



  24. 24

    Yeah right. Artie lies like a rug, Perez. He's just lazy & doesn't want to follow through with his gigs.



  25. 25

    Get Well and Good Luck Artie!



  26. 26

    Utter bullshit. Probably just means he's going to NA or AA.



  27. 27

    HA!
    I was right! It's not surprising he'd wimp out and take "outpatient rehab." Artie's not into it; this is some kind of compromise. Maybe, after he was so obviously wasted in front of Mel, HR got involved and gave him an ultimatum to clean up or get out.
    If Artie were *Sirius* about getting sober and healthy, he'd check into inpatient rehab for as long as it takes.
    This is going to be as effective as him popping a Subutex and suddenly being over his heroin addiction (which is the only time he's been thin btw). Unless and until Artie takes care of the demons (him not being there to hold the ladder on the day his dad became a quad and what sounds like a shitty childhood before then) he *self-medicates* to escape, Artie won't be healthy and is bound to be abusing alcohol or some other substance within months (if not days).

    He had to think of some excuse to get out of work, so he could stay at his new house & eat Mommy's cooking.

    Both of them are so ugly. How is it that fat, ugly, greasy men are able to find employment??



  30. 30

    We love you Artie and wondered what it was. Get well soon and for the christ sake, take it a day at a time. Wish it was inpatient but what the fuck are you gonna do.



  31. 31

    Howard 100 news just reported that this is not confirmed despite what the New York Post is reporting. But they are confirming that he will be at the studio for Monday morning's show. So that was the shortest rehab in the history of earth.



  32. 32

    If Jenna Jameson can get prgnant, then old LARD ASS can take care of himself. Hope he cannot sign himself out, because the asshole will leave as soon a it gets tough, like about 2 hours after he arrives.



  33. 33

    artie is such a great part of the show. i really hope he gets the help he needs and learns to take care of himself!! good luck artie!!!!



  34. 34

    About time!!!! I hope this time it works!! Good luck my baby gorilla!!!! GET WELL!!!!!!!!



  35. 35

    WOW………………….I MEAN WOW !!!!! He must really want Dainer back !! I think inpatient would be better but it is a start. Can't wait for MOndays show, I wonder what he was on last week.

    and mmmm Howie looks great in that picture



  36. 36

    I dont hold much faith in out patient rehab. I believe he needs intensive inpatient treatment.



  37. 37

    Re: SlickWilley
    Dude.
    It's OUTpatient "rehab."
    Artie isn't committed at all.

    I feel like he needs an in-patient program for sure.

    I agree - about time! I hope that he is successful in treatment.



  41. 41

    so it only takes a week to kick Subutex, cigarettes, caffeine, sugar and greasy foods?

    could this all be a ploy to cover up Howard's wedding that might be happening this week?



  42. 42

    WHAAA Artie's in rehab, WHAAA!! Just kidding! On a serious note, I'm so so so happy Artie's getting help for himself. I hope he stays clean & gets Dana back. GO ARTIE!!



  43. 43

    Artie has a lot of demons besides drugs. I hope he gets the psychiatric help he needs, besides rehab. We love you Artie, the show wouldn't be the same without you!
