    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 naïve 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.

    That's code for "you will never be a regular on my show again, so don't ask and make it awkward for me"

    I love when Howard plays stupid as if he didnt know the level that Artie was at

    He admitted MULTIPLE times using Heroin....was sleeping during the show due to the use....fighting employees.....I mean, who actually believes that Howard didnt know that Artie was at a severe extreme level?

    The whole Artie situation made me realize that Howard really is a cunt. I don't give a shit what anyone says, Howard turned his back on Artie. Howard made the whole Artie thing about himself. What Howard is going through, what Howard didn't see, how guilty Howard felt, etc. If Howard really gave a shit, he would be promoting Artie's show, he would have gone on the show, he would have had Artie on THSS, but most importantly he would hang out with Artie every once in a while and make sure he is doing fine. Fuck Howard.

    Jimmy Kimmel called into the Nick and Artie show this week. Jimmy Kimmel is the polar opposite of Howard..................except for the dumping of the wife and kids then hooking up with a talentless fame-fucker part. But at least Kimmel got rid of his guttersnipe.

    It was a fantastic appearance; a natural conversation between friends, full of warmth and respect and genuine affection, but still funny as hell.

    Jimmy seems like the type of guy who would get out of bed at 3 in the morning to bail a casual acquaintance out of jail. Not only would Howard not do that, but he'd snigger on the air about how he didn't do it, and the only reason he'd have the guy on the air is to ask if he got raped in jail.

    During Artie's meltdown and comeback, Jimmy apparently checked in with Artie once a week.

    Howard, the guy whos show Artie held up for almost a decade, wouldn't even take his calls.

    But he loves black people and thanks seals, so come on, middle America!!!

    Yeah, Howard is full of shit about that. Many times he said he didn't care if Artie was using drugs while Artie was going on his downward spiral as long as he is funny for the show. It was like how Chris Rock described how Chris Farley's people handled him in his final days - get him sober enough to perforn and let him kill himself on his own time. If Artie didn't try to kill himself and Sirius wasn't getting tired of Artie's addiction, Artie would have probably continued his downward spiral while on the show until he finally ODed.

    Yeah, but if he's going to sell himself as one, he's going to get rained upon.

    And there's being a dick, and then there's being a dick to friends.

    The revolution, she don't add up.

    Scumbag. How about even mentioning "I know he's got a great new radio job and I'm happy for him"? Or "he's e-mailed and queeted me and left me messages but I don't want to return his calls"? Or "he keeps saying publicly how he misses the job and wants to come back for a visit, but I say fuck him"?

    It's worse than this because Howard clearly didn't care if Artie killed himself on heroine as long as he produced on the show. While you could see others on the show clearly concerned about Artie's downward spiral (if that spilled on the air, you gotta think it was 10x worse behind the scenes), Howard said publicly that he didn't care because it was good radio when Artie like Artie passing out on the air.

    Color you lucky, then.

    So why you here? I thought venting and commiserating were the only two things on the menu.
