Artie Lange Stabbed Self Nine Times in Suicide Attempt
So while it was easy to make light of the fact that Buck probably wasn't too broken up when Lange was rushed to the hospital on January 2, the latest development in the story doesn't have much of a punchline at all.
Lange's condition was initially kept under wraps but it turns out he was hospitalized after stabbing himself nine times -- with six "hesitation wounds" and three "deep plunges" -- in an unsuccessful suicide attempt.
That's a sad, sad situation that makes everyone's heart sink.
Says Stern of his longtime on-air partner's struggles...
...as quoted in the NY Post:
"We all have our demons," Stern said on-air this week, referring to Lange's past battles with addiction. "Artie has given this show tremendous moments of great comedy. He's a tremendous contributor. He is a good man. Don't forget how great he is."Here's wishing Lange a speedy recovery, from wounds both physical and mental.
