Last but not least, Howard told E! News he didn't rule out having former sidekick and pal Artie Lange back on The Howard Stern Show. Lange left the show after his suicide attempt two years ago."Well, you never know. Artie is a dear, dear coworker, friend, love the guy. He spent many years on our show. And I...felt rather foolish I didn't know he was having problems to the level he was having. I felt a little naÃ¯ve about that," said Stern. "And I think when it comes to Artie and anybody who has a problem, I felt that it was so severe and what happened, that I didn't even think I could approach it on the radio just yet. I wanted to make sure that Artie felt good. You know, it's really more about Artie than me. And I just wish him well. I just want him to have a glorious, joyous life and I really mean that." fucking liar.
