For a couple years I've been wanting Artie back on the show and especially since he left the loony bin and rehab and when he called Gary and said he wanted to come on and talk "about everything that happened". But.. HOWARD WAS RIGHT for not having Artie on the show. Tonight on Jimmy Fallon, Artie said he was still doing drugs this past time in rehab. I don't know if he's said that before in other interviews or on Nick & Artie, I haven't heard it. But.. ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? He stabs himself nine times, goes into a psych ward then to rehab and that's not his bottom? He still decides to use? Tonight REALLY for the first time opened my eyes and I see Artie for the little baby that he is. He's so fragile that the people in his life are shoving cigarettes and moot-za-rell down his throat just so he doesn't drink or use. He went from a whop to a whopper to a whale. He has to be weighing 350 now. Thanks Howie for not having him on, you were right. Because you know if Artie was on the show he would have to talk about using, how he left and the night he tried to kill himself and he isn't ready to do that.. you saw how uncomfortable he was during the Joy Behar show when she asked about the suicide attempt. I always thought Howie didn't want Artie on because he had guilt or just wanted to distance himself from Artie, but now I could see Howie not having him on the show for Artie's own good.
