Artie Lange: Suicide Attempt!

| Filed under: Sad Sad

wenn5339606.jpg

After speculation surrounding his recent hospitalization, it's been reported that Artie Lange attempted suicide.

Artie's mom called 911 on Saturday morning as she found the blood-drenched comedian in his Hoboken apartment. She came by his place to deliver food and discovered that her son had stabbed himself. Lange suffered six "hesitation wounds" and three deep plunges, but surgeons managed to save him despite the vast amount of blood.

Sad. Hope he gets the help he needs!

    I'll wait to hear it from Howard. It is totally believable though. Artie has serious issues.
    Get well soon fat-ass. the show isn't the same without you!!!

    wow, he used a knife? brutal, our uncle shot himself in the head..he was a farmer and he knew how to end it now!! prayers to the family♥

    So sad. I hope this world doesn't lose Lange yet. Hopefully once he heals he will realize he doesn't need to end his life.

    Wow, I don't really like Howard Stern's show but I hope Artie is able to face his demons and finally overcome them in a positive healthy way.

    Artie!!! Prayers to you and your mom and sister. C'mon, you are needed-think of your family and how they'd miss you!

    Oh My God! I love Artie. After reading his book you really get to know him and his demons. Too Fat to Fish was such a great book. I hope he gets better but I think it's going to be a long time. I am not much of a prayer person but my prayers are with him and his family. His mom already lost her husband to an awful death and she and his sister have worked very hard to help him. Bless both of them.
    Your biggest fan, Lisa

    If you REALLY want to die, why the hell would you stab yourself?? You'd have a much better chance by leaping off a building or putting a gun in your mouth. tsk.

  19. 19

    Holy shit, now that is one serious suicide attempt. Sad indeed, I love Artie, i think he is brilliant on the show. Looks like his days on the Stern show, are truly over.



  20. 20

    trying to stab yourself to death? thats horrible! I always liked Artie (especially on Madtv). I hope he gets the help he needs and doesn't become another hollywood statistic!



  21. 21

    wow. is that a case of mothers intuition, or what.
    thank god his mama loves him and was bringing him some lunch.
    otherwise homie would be dead already.



  22. 22

  23. 23

    This really sucks to hear.
    Come on Artie get yourself clean
    and live !!! For your family, fans
    and most of all for yourself.



  24. 24

    Oh Artie, Get better man. I understand you are in a deep dark place, but suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. You can beat these demons. You just have to want it — BAD….and go to any means to get CLEAN. Love ya big man.



  25. 25

    I can't stand these weak scumbags that try to commit suicide and fail. Hang yourself with a rope 100% success rate. Die you scum



  26. 26

    I'm not sure if I believe this..but if true…please Artie—HELP YOURSELF!!!!



  27. 27

    Holy Shit!! Thats Crazy!! Get well Soon Artie!! We love you!

    jesus fucking christ, artie, what a way to try to do yourself in. was he whack out of his mind on the junk or what? his poor mom and sister, i feel bad for them. no family should have to suffer through something like this. pull it together, fatboy, you're pissing away a charmed life.



  31. 31

    I love me some Artie, but in Artie tradition all I'm going to say is "WAHHHHHHHH!"



  32. 32

    I feel so bad for him…..he has such demons. I hope he can find happiness. Thank God his old school Italian mom still brings him homemade food…

    I used to think a gun was the best way (railroad tracks work too, but that means the engineer is the tool for murder, and that seems wrong); one of my relatives used hanging, another a gun; but now I think helium is the best> fast, painless, and not endangering others (doesn't waste gas either, like sitting in a closed garage with car engine running). Leaping from heights (Cooper Anderson's brother) works but you might land on someone (cruel!) and it leaves a mess. Tricking the cops into shooting you can work but that's selfish. So I think helium, yeah…..die with a high-pitched voice. It's poisonous…

    I've never heard of this person or listened to that show. but if you're going to use a knife….wrists, and vertical cuts, not horizontal.



  34. 34

    This seems so fishy to me!! Why would a drug addict try to kill himself by stabbing himself 9 times?!?! Something seems off! Artie is much loved and this story just brings me to tears bc it isn't his time yet! Please have a quick recovery and get yourself mental health when you get back you health!



  35. 35

    Sad to find your child like that! Stay strong Artie. Get well and maybe some help with your problems. Prayers to you and your family.



  36. 36

    I listen to the Howard Stern show everyday & miss Artie dearly. I'm not surprised to read this, but one of the probs is that he's FIGHTING so hard to STAY off of drugs/alcohol. I had a strange feeling he was at the breaking point after being off the show in Dec. I truly hope he hangs in there!!!



  37. 37

    goapebilly you are a heartless douche. Get Well Artie!!!



  38. 38

    You are very loved Artie - you can believe it. Get well soon!



  39. 39

    Pull through Artie, all the best man



  40. 40

    People who really want to kill themselves kill themselves. Period.



  41. 41

    Love you Artie!



  42. 42

    I love you, Artie….get well soon!

    Amy from Pittsburgh…



  43. 43

    What a fucking moron. When you are THAT fat, stabbing yourself is pointless. He wasn't going to hit a major organ through all that fat. The best he could have expected was slowly bleeding to death. Brilliant idea. Let's hope he succeeds next time.



  44. 44

    How sad…he is sooo funny



  45. 45

    true i will only listen to howard stern



  46. 46

    He's just upset that all his brothers left that Pier 39 in San Francisco



  47. 47

    omg what takes so long looking for my blog



  48. 48

    artie, you are the best part of the show, please get help.



  49. 49

    Artie, this makes me so sad! We LOVE YOU so much!



  50. 50

    Why is it okay for you to steal other news stories word for word. Get a life perez.



  51. 51

    I KNOW 5 PEOPLE THAT HAVE KILLED THEMSELFES, SUCCESSFULLY, STABING YOURSELF IS NOT ONE OF THEM!!! DUH FAT ASS, YOUR LOSING RESPECT AND SYMPATHY FROM THE STERN FANS WITH EACH CRY FOR ATTENTION. GROW THE FUCK UP OR GO…GOOD RIDDANCE



  52. 52

    Wow. Artie chose self-inflicted stabbings to end his life?
    Really sad. Such a painful way to go.
    I hope they can help him. Best wishes for a full recovery, Artie.



  53. 53

    Please get some help, get real, you gotta get well for yourself ,YOUR mom & countless others. LOVE YOU !!! this is very upsetting to me…

    Re: PENNSYLVANIA GIRL
    You're exactly right. Artie timed his *attempt* with his mom's weekly refrigerator cleaning/filling visit.

    What a lovely way to thank his mom and sister for their devotion and continuing efforts to take care of him when he can't be bothered to take care of himself.

    What a lovely "F-U" to Sirius for forcing him to take a leave of absence and clean up his act (at least, FINALLY, no one's buying his "I'm doing 'do it yourself' rehab" while he nods off on the Show) — see what they made him do!

    What a lovely "F-U" to Stern for giving him chance after chance after chance and the benefit of every doubt. Even at the *end* however, Artie couldn't win the passive/aggressive battle with Howchie, who's waiting for Artie to call him.



  55. 55

    Who cares?



  56. 56

    Re: Shamela
    You are so right. He had to know it would be his mother that would find him like that. We who listen to Howard regularly know Artie is totally selfish and a mommas boy-even his fans. I can't believe he would get so gakked that he'd STAB himself. I can see OD'ing or something but that is really fucked up. his mother must be devastated!



  57. 57

    Aww bless him. I hope he has some good people round him to bring him back to happiness.



  58. 58

    I love Artie, it would be devastating if he ended it…..
