Steve-O -- Sobriety Is Its Own Reward

12/4/2009 2:13 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Steve-O isn't just happy because he's not going to jail -- after a judge dismissed a felony drug charge today for good behavior -- Steve-O's happy because now he gets to be sober just for himself. And it feels good.

Steve-O

The "Jackass" star stopped by the dreaded California DMV after appearing in court today with attorney Barry Gerald Sands -- where he proved to a judge he's been 100% sober for 18 months since his arrest in 2008. The judge was so impressed he dismissed the felony drug charge for cocaine possession ... and even took Steve-O's arrest off his record.

But some things never change -- Steve-O tells TMZ he was at the DMV because he lost his wallet after getting naked and donning a wrestling singlet for an upcoming Jackass 3D flick.

Calling Kanye 'Jackass'

Obama Caught on Tape Calling Kanye 'Jackass'TMZ has obtained the audiotape of President Barack Obama calling Kanye West a "jackass" for hijacking Taylor Swift's acceptance speech during the VMAs.

The audio was recorded just before Obama went on camera to do an interview with CNBC. Before the interview began, Obama -- referring to Kanye's antics on stage -- said "I thought that was really inappropriate," then adding, "He's a jackass."

After making the remarks, Obama said "Where's the pool?" Presumably, he was worried the joke would go wide. He noted the last time that happened, he got burned for killing a fly.

Obama said, "Cut the President some slack."

Bam to Wife -- We Can Work It Out

8/5/2009 2:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Missy & Bam MargeraBam Margera has found a more effective way of dealing with his marital problems than going on a four day bender: Marriage counseling and meds.

The "Jackass" star, who was recently hospitalized with "dehydration" after a drinking binge, says he's been trying to work it out with wife Missy -- and she's forced them into couples counseling twice a week.

Bam also tells us Missy "thinks I have a split personality, like Jekyll and Hyde" and he has been taking the antidepressant Lexapro to control his "mood swings."

He says, so far, the counseling is working.

'Dehydrated' from a

4 Day Bender

We just spoke to Bam Margera who said he was rushed to the hospital Sunday after a four day drinking binge -- not because of a possible drug overdose.

0720_bam_ex_nwm-1
The "Jackass" star blames the "4-day bender" on marital problems, telling us "I may get a divorce ... booze helps."

TMZ also spoke to Bam's mother -- who told us Bam's wife Missy called 911 because she was worried about his health after learning that he popped an Ambien during the drinking bender.

Margera says his kidney and leg muscles were a mess from not eating or drinking enough water -- but the hospital flushed out his system and he was released to his home after speaking to a psychiatrist.

Now, Bam claims he's in good health and he even sent us this photo -- taken after he was released from the hospital -- to prove it.

He Was 'Severely Dehydrated'

bams-mom-he-was-severly-dehydratedApril Margera
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.

"Jackass" Star Is a Wee Bit Pissed

7/11/2008 1:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Wee Man might be facing a regular-sized butt whooping.
Read the docs
Let us tell you a little story. Wee Man, of "Jackass" fame, is pissed off at Vegas performer Wee Matt. Wee Man claims Wee Matt has been telling people he's him -- not for money, but for chicks. Now Wee Matt is pissed at such an accusation and wants to fight Wee Man for a little honor.

Wee Matt, through Vegas impresario Jeff Beacher, is challenging Wee Man to a fight -- for $100,000. The proposed bout would take place at Beacher's Madhouse in The Mirage Hotel on Halloween. We're hearing both sides have agreed verbally, but nothing is down on paper yet.

Jackass Admits He Was a Jackass

6/3/2008 1:37 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned that professional jackass Steve-O has fessed up to felony coke charges -- he just changed his plea to guilty in an L.A. court.

His lawyer Barry Sands tells us that O-town decided to change his plea after making a deal with the judge: If he enrolls in a narcotics program and stands "on good behavior" -- that's probably complicated when you're talking about Steve-O -- the case will get tossed.

Steve-O's got 48 hours from today to enroll in the program -- clock's tickin'.
