Wow!! All the hateful comments. The Cyber bullying in America is 2nd only to S Korea. The only difference is in America websites such as TMZ and Radar do the reporting and the readers respond by posting mostly nasty and hateful comments. In S Korea the cyber bullies and hackers attack the celebrities and anyone who posts something online that they consider demeaning to Koreans such as the Korean lady who posted on her blog that short guys are losers. Cyber bullies not only hacked into her computer and got her email address, mailing address, and telephone # they made copies with her photo on it and placed the "Loser girl" posters all across campuses in S. Korea. The poor girl was almost driven to brink of suicide.

How long will it be before its the same in America? I don't know who Artie Lange is but I wouldn't wish for him to drop dead or die. If you have nothing nice to say about anyone how about not saying anything at all.

Oh great now Howard will have to be even more "sensitive" to Artie's feelings than he already has been, and we won't get any of the story. He'll tell us Artie has quit the show, he is sorry to see him leave and that he hopes it is the best for Artie. Keep the info coming TMZ, cause we won't get in on Howard.

Artie, first off, we all hope you get better.

Second, I hope you realize that its now time for you to leave the show. You had a nice little run. But, you basically shot your load 3 years ago and haven't added anything to the show since. The shows are always better when you are not on air. And after listening to the History of Howard Stern Part 3, it is obvious that your comedy is hackier than Jackie's. I would hope Howard keeps the door open for Jackie or Billy West.

For the sake of the show and your health, be a man and walk away. Now is the time.

I was just reading about Artie on Wiki after reading this story and the last paragraph was "On January 3, 2010 it was reported by a reliable source that Artie Lange was pronounced dead at a Toms River, NJ hospital. The details are that Lange ingested a large amount of sleeping pills and chlorine bleach. There has been no autopsy scheduled yet to confirm and no there has been no return call from Lange's management company."

Is this a really bad joke or WTF? I refreshed the main page of TMZ but I didn't see an updated story, just MJ.

To the last poster - I hope you are wrong............ but if it is not this time - Artie will keep trying. What a shame - no amount of money in the world can help this guy.

Marriage to Lisa G. is the only thing that will save Artie's life.
