Good work, Artie! Not only did you confirm the obvious -- that you've been lying about your *sobriety* -- but now you've gone and ruined Howard's last days of vacation. Get thee to real rehab and give us ARTIE-FREE STERN SHOWS for a few monts. We don't need to hear your belligerent lies and insults -- no one believes you anymore, not even your mom.

I live in Toms River!! He was actually already in Toms River before this happened - per APP.COM so I think he was probably staying around here for a couple days, probably around the boardwalk here.

This was reported on July 6th 2009 at app.com:

I am afraid this guy is far too delusional to ever get help for his many addictions. Some people have to lose everything before they wake up, unfortunately his career and life may be gone by that point.

This unfortunate TRAINWRECK is his own worst enemy. I hope he doesn't take anyone else out with him when he really effs up! He is such a negative, spoiled, rude, loudmouth but he's really just a a temperamental person who takes adulation and privileged treatment as a right and reacts with petulance to criticism or inconvenience. Grow up anus- you're not even funny any more!

I can't believe it. First we learn Chastity Bono is gay, and then Artie Lange is a drunk. Oh, the humanity!!!
