Artie Lange's Suicide Attempt Not His First!

So sad.

Artie Lange's recent suicide attempt has not been the first for the Howard Stern Show sidekick as he has been dealing with depression, weight issues as well as drug and alcohol abuse for years.

He outlined his thought process after a previous suicide attempt back in 1995, by the use of sleeping aids and whiskey, in his book Too Fat To Fish:

"It’s hard to admit any of this, even all these years later, because when I think about it there is one thing that scares me most of all: I was 100 percent serious about dying… When I started to feel the effects of the drugs two minutes later, my will to die did not change, but I had the weirdest emotional reaction:

"I was morbidly curious about what was going to happen and obsessively began going over the possibilities… I was actually excited and looking forward to whatever lay in store for me."

How awful!

Those are the words of a very sick individual and we really do hope that Artie is finally able to get the help he so desperately needs.

We're rooting for him.

  2. 2

  3. 3

    me too, I



  4. 4

  5. 5

    This piece of trash should kill himself. Next time use a rope 100% effective you weak piece of trash.



  6. 6

    MARIO STFU BEFORE YOU POUT YOUR FOOT IN YOUR MOUTH AGAIN ARTIE HAS NNOT BEEN FIRED FROM THE SHOW AND YOU KNOW NOTHING. ASSHOLE.



  7. 7

    if you care so much about fatboy why haven't you retracted that bullshit you posted about sirius/xm waiting to fire him til he was emotionally able to cope with it? did you hear langford's report about your bogus story and tim's total denial of it yesterday?
    way to make the situation even worse, perez. sometimes you are so cruel.



  8. 8

    his book came out in 2008, his suicide attempt happened in 1995 when he was on MADTV and his costar dave herman rescued him.. he is deeply troubled and all his fans, me including, are praying for him



  9. 9

    FUCK YOU PEREZ!! You don't care about him–yesterday you printed a rumor about him being fired from Sirius—you don't print lies for millions of people to read if you care about somebody. Artie is a true talent and genius–unlike you–who hasn't an original thought or talent.
    GET WELL ARTIE–and don't read this fucking negative blog



  10. 10

    we love you artie, get better
    the haters are the trash



  11. 11

    It's going to be a long road ahead for Artie. I don't see his return to the show anytime soon. Addiction and depression are such a scarey mix. Get help big guy and take care of yourself.



  12. 12

    Hey idiot…Too Fat Too Fish didn't come out in 1995



  13. 13

    Love you, Artie!! Please get well soon. This world would not be the same without you!!!

    As a sober ALCOHOLIC and past DRUG user who also happens to suffer from DEPRESSION (self medicating with alcohol and drugs is quite common). I feel for him (as a fellow HUMAN) as in the past I had two failed (obviously) SUICIDE attempts.
    Just last night I got honest with my therapist that I has a SECRET STASH of 270 Ativan pills "TO END THINGS" if they got too BAD. I turned those over 2 hours ago.
    I will continue my therapy/medications AS prescribed), stay busy, and remember as I have said here before:
    SUICIDE IS A PERMANENT SOLUTION TO A TEMPORARY PROBLEM.

    I love, love, love, Artie. I hope he gets the help he needs, and can finally one day really be happy. He deserves it!!!!!!



  16. 16

    The suicide attempt was in 1995. Duh!



  17. 17

    Still I can't imagine STABBING himself! He really must have just lost it.
    I think if he truly wanted to die he would have-like his hero Belushi.

    I'm going to miss Artie on the show. Can't see him coming back then he'd have to discuss this all on the air. SAD!

    Also…you should know that the VP of Howards channels on Sirius has said the rumors of Artie being fired are not true.



  19. 19

    The book came out last year not 1995



  20. 20

    Yeah, this book was published in 2008, not 1995.



  21. 21

    I HOPE YOU PISS OFF HOWARD WITH YOUR BULLSHIT AND AFTER ALL HES DONE TO HELP PROMOTE THIS FUCKING SITE YOU UNGRATEFUL BASTARD. ID LOVE TO SEE HIM RUIN YOU THIS YEAR, IT WOULD BE THE BEST STERN KILL YET….



  22. 22

    why is there shame associated with wanting to die??? WHy this stigma? Why does he have to feel ashamed to "admit" this, and why does it make him "very sick"? Good grief. What's wrong with making the decision to stop living, if you have reason? Death will happen anyway, eventually. People are so childishand squeamish; it's not like he confessed to attempted MURDER!!!



  23. 23

    How come every time Mario says something that suggests he may actually have a heart (or a soul, for that matter) it comes across as completely insincere?



  24. 24

    If at first you don't succeed… I'm glad Perez is not holding back on this unlike that hypocrite Stern! Stern wishes cancer on people, wishes them dead and then surrounds himself with losers like Artie. The best thing Arite can do if he lives is get as far away as possible from the cancer himself aka Stern.



  25. 25

    We can always count on you to "report" stuff thats already PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE …as if its breaking news. You really are a fucktard. Its bad enough that all you do in general is riff off of what the actual, legitimate media puts out there. Now youre breaking news that is over a year old. Idiot. At least you managed to not make any glaringly retarded spelling mistakes on this one…so uh, good job Mr. Media. PS I cant believe Howard ever even allowed your pathetic, untalented ass in his studio esp. after you ripped off his title. Your appearance sucked and all of his fans think you are untalented and pathetic. Just look up the feedback to your appearance. But i digress . .

    In short, WE KNOW. Loser.

    on Howard 100 News they referred to you, Perez… as "former" Stern Show guest. Did you catch that news. "Former" means what?

    I love Artie and i am so sorry this has happened. I hope he gets everything he needs to have a better life. Its hard to think of what he may have been going through in his mind before this happened. Artie your a good guy please get well fully mind body and soul. Prayers



  29. 29

    ARTIE'S DONE! HOWARD WAS TALKING ABOUT FAT MAN IN PAST TENSE YESTERDAY. WOW, GUESS HE'S FIRED AND AN ADDICT AT THE SAME TIME. KINDA GOOD REASON THO…



  30. 30

    Give me a couple months with this guy. I'll put him on a raw vegan diet. Some cacao beans to change his mood, some lucuma and yacon syrup as low glycemic sweeteners and some wheat berries, nuts and flax seeds to make his breads. And tons of veggies. Hey, he can even have some organic (raw) wine. Sometimes all you need is some God made foods and a little love to turn your life around.



  31. 31

    SURE YOU'RE ROOTING FOR HIM…JUST LIKE MJ, THAT JOHNSON CHICK, BRITTANY MURPHY AND THE REST OF THEM! YOU LOVE THIS SHIT SO DON'T ACT LIKE YOU DON'T ASSHOLE! INSTEAD OF POSTING TOTAL BULLSHIT ABOUT THESE PEOPLE AND THEIR LIVES, WHICH MEAN NOTHING TO YOU BUT A GOOD STORY, WHY DON'T YOU MAKE A REAL DIFFERENCE IN THIS WORLD AND PRACTICE WHAT YOU BREACH YOU BULLY! KARMA'S A BITCH BULLYBOY!

    Re: ap076 – Oh dear–I had no idea. Glad you're still with us and stay with us– will you luv. Keep strong, Alice has a soft spot for her new pal *wink*



  38. 38

    Perez, your attacks on people contribute to feelings of depression. You're a terrible human being.



  39. 39

    Re: ap076 – Oh sweetie good luck with your progress. Stay strong. I hope Artie does well too. Very funny guy.



  40. 40

    Hey Geniuses, Perez was saying the incident was back in 95, not the book. To quote another radio legend (Don Imus) - You're an idiot.



  41. 41

    Re: ap076 – I'm so glad you were unsuccessful in your attempts. I hope you and Artie get the help you need. I went through years of chronic depression, so bad I tried to top myself a couple of times. The last time I tried was 1998…I took an overdose of sleeping pills. When I woke up the next day (I didn't take enough obviously) I was asked by the nurse how I felt…she went to answer for me, expecting me to say "relieved" but I felt disappointed. I'm glad it didn't work now, things are so much better now than back then for me.



  42. 42

    I really wish you would kill yourself Mario, you low life scum fucker.



  43. 43

    Hey idiots, it says that he attempted suicide in 1995 which the book highlighted…morons



  44. 44

    Artie - please get well soon. Howard's show is funnier with you eating your huge breakfast while bitching about homos and the rat pack on air. Eric the Midget wants you back, well and alive. You are sorely missed by us - your fans and the rat pack!
