Artie Lange Hasn't Asked Howard For His Job

Artie Lange, who hasn't been on The Howard Stern show for a while now, has been apparently saying he'd do anything to get his job back — yet, he hasn't approached Howard and just asked.

Howard briefly discussed Artie on the Stern show this morning — claiming, "Artie had said he wishes he was back on the show … [which] stirred up a whole bunch of conversation that I don't even know how to begin to address."

When Robin asked if Artie ever personally approached Howard to ask for his job back, Howard replied, "No, but I think he would if he could get a hold of me."

Howard then went on to talk about the prospect of Artie getting his own radio show:

"Of course I support it. I think it would be great. I'd like to listen to Artie."

Howard adds, "I'm glad to hear that he's feeling better … I'm really pulling for him. I hope he does okay."

For those of you who don't know, Artie had a very sad, and very brutal suicide attempt in 2010. He's just recently gotten back out to do some stand up and make an appearance on the radio.

We agree with Howard — we're glad to hear he's feeling better, and we hope that he's okay! He's a funny guy, and it'd be a shame to lose him.

    Howard Stern enjoyed humiliating people, especially women. He take great personal pleasure in enticing people to make fools of themselves and act like animals. He picks on vulnerable Z list entertainers. People not bright enough or too damaged to resist his kleig lights.

    He picks on Z listers? He picks on anyone!

    Stern is awesome! I hope Artie comes back. Obviously it's a whole awkward situation, but I hope things can go back to the way they were before his suicide attempt.

    Drugs are some serious shit! I'll never understand why anyone would ever want to try it, especially the hard stuff, like heroin and cocaine, which he was addicted to. Also he was a booze hound.

    Howard Stern is still doing his show? Wow, he hasn't been relevant in years.



  4. 4

    I don't understand why Artie "couldn't get a hold of him" if he knows that Artie wants to come back. Isn't publicly expressing it enough? They're talking through the media, all polite and all, like two strangers.

    He was on the Jimmy Fallon show last year with Olivia Munn and he and Olivia got going and it was the funniest thing I have ever seen.

    Re: boston61 – Clearly you don't actually listen to him because you have no fucking clue what you're talking about.

    Re: Mr. Happy

    LOL! I love these delusional dopes that say that. Clueless

    @Mr.Happy: Just because you can't afford a satellite subscription does not negate Howard's relevance. According to Forbes powerful celebrity list of 2011 he is still ranked higher than James Cameron, Beyonce, Jay Z, Brad Pitt, J Lo, Tom Hanks, Will Smith, Julia Roberts it is a list too long to finish….Enjoy your ignorance

    Who cares…..!! he will probably die soon. John Belushi, John Candy, Chris Farley… do the math.

    You know it might work out if Artie does come back. Sometimes the show is really tight and other times its a big borefest with Howard and Robin vying for me me i i time.I originally purchased satellite radio because of Howard but sadly I rarely listen now.

    Re: boston61 – Howard picks on everybody, A listers as well. If you listened to the show, you would know that.

    Re: kustumpainter – Howard is neither a drug addict or obese. How does he fit in with those 3 examples?? People think because they label Howard as irrelevant that it will stick. Your thoughts and hopes wont make him go away. Get that stick outta your ass!!
