Bam's Mom

He Was 'Severely Dehydrated'

just called into WMMR radio in Philadelphia to explain why a 911 call for a "possible overdose" was made for Bam yesterday.

April -- who just got back in town from a vacation -- said Bam had been filming for the MTV show "Nitro Circus" and had become "severely dehydrated." She said when Bam films stunts for shows like "Nitro" -- which is just like "Jackass" -- he forgets to take care of himself and doesn't eat enough.

April also said "basic partying" played a factor and she heard Bam walked to the ambulance on his own power.

As we first reported, Bam was taken to the hospital yesterday at around 1:30 PM.

Of course he was dehydrated, from licking too much salty ball sweat.

Is that what you kids are calling it these days?

Come on, its his Mom, she is the last person to openly talk about her son and drugs. That said, how about a real job, ummm, jackass?

Did he really think that behaving like a HUGE baffoon for the camera was going to get him loaded for life? At some point I would think it was time to grow up?! One looks like a moron with grey hair wiping out in a shopping cart into some bushes.

Gee, what does your son do for a living? Oh he sucks snot out of his nose, wipes out on skate boards, falls off of buildings, talks like a teenager when he is 28, you know, the normal.

LOL I love when totally clueless parents feel that it's best to call a radio station and explain their "child's" behavior, without realizing that it's a crock that only THEY believe, and that it only makes it worse.

He's not 22 anymore, the body can only take so much 'basic partying' and abuse. Then it'll be some pain pills because of injuries, more drinking and of course living with a heroin addict isn't going to help much either. Time to grow up a little Bam.
