ARTIE LANGE WALKS OFF HOWARD STERN SHOW!
Thursday, April 10, 2008
It seems Artie Lange has finally hit rock bottom. This morning, he walked off his job on the HOWARD STERN SHOW.
It all started in the halls with Artie getting into a screaming match with his assistant, Teddy. Teddy was brought into the studio where the two went at it live on the air. Artie was upset with Teddy over a bunch of things, mostly because Teddy kept forgetting to do things. Artie also accused Teddy of being bad with money and said he has loaned him thousands of dollars.
Artie told Teddy he wanted him to quit and said he hates him. The argument turned physical with Artie throwing a cup of water at Teddy. Several members of the crew rushed in to hold Artie back. They brought him out to the hall to calm down. Robin screamed out, "Jesus Christ! What the f is going on here!" Howard said Artie was out of control and should go home for the day.
A very angry Artie came back in and accused Howard of causing the fight. "If I got to him, he'd be dead right now," Artie said. Artie told Howard that he wanted the fight to happen, which Howard denied. "Your job is stay under control," Howard said. Artie said he couldn't guarantee that he wouldn't get into a fight again. "I love you, but I can't do it anymore. I'm an out of control person," Artie said. Artie threatened to resign. "I'm not a good person Howard. I gotta leave. I love you." Artie left the studio.
"If Artie' going to throw stuff, I can't allow that. I can't put people in danger," Howard said. "I don't know what to say about it other than I'm deeply upset and depressed," Howard said.
Moments later, a very shook up Teddy came back into the studio. He said he doesn't know how he'll ever fix things with Artie. Teddy also said he'd take all the blame for the fight, but Howard wouldn't let him do that.
The whole crew was left speechless for the rest of the show. The tone was like a funeral.
This isn't the first time Artie has gone after someone on the show. A few months ago, he got into a yelling match with Sal and threw a CD at him.
We'll have to wait until Monday to see if Artie comes back on the show.
