Bam to Wife -- We Can Work It Out

8/5/2009 2:30 AM PDT

Bam 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.

Bam 'Dehydrated' from a 4 Day Bender

7/21/2009 1:25 PM PDT
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.

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. 

Bam's Mom He Was 'Severely Dehydrated'

7/20/2009 11:30 AM PDT

April 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.

TMZ has learned "Jackass" star Bam Margera was rushed to the hospital yesterday after paramedics responded to a 911 call for a "possible overdose."

We're told state troopers and medical personnel arrived to his home in West Chester, Pennsylvania at around 1:30 PM.

Story developing...

Bam Margera Wasted. Falling. Naked.

11/11/2008 1:13 PM PST
It turned into a s**t show outside Key Club last night when Bam Margera and his completely obliterated friend let loose on the Sunset Strip, and ended up rolling around half naked on concrete in a random bar parking lot.

It got so bad, we can't even show you the worst of it ... and trust us, you don't want to know.

"Jackass" Star Is a Wee Bit Pissed

7/11/2008 1:42 PM PDT
Wee Man might be facing a regular-sized butt whooping.

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
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'.

Steve-O Blows Stunt, Not Coke

4/23/2008 9:53 AM PDT
When Steve-O wasn't eating pavement in Hollywood yesterday -- the "Jackass" told TMZ he'll be pleading not guilty to felony drug possession charges in court later today.

Check back to see if Steve-O does better in front of the judge than he did at landing a 360 shove-it -- we'll be live streaming the whole thing from inside the courtroom starting at 8:30 PST.

Bam: Vito's the New Kobe

8/29/2007 10:19 AM PDT
It's hard to be taken seriously when you've got a tattoo of two animals humping on your leg, but former "Jackass" star Bam Margera tried anyway.

TMZ caught the bad boy skateboarder outside of Koi last night, where he had a cute little dinner date with legend Tony Hawk. Bam tore into lawyers going after his uncle, Don Vito, who is accused of fondling three girls between the ages of 13 and 15, during an appearance at a Colorado mall last year. "These small town lawyers, they want to get their names in the paper .... It's like the Kobe Bryant thing," Bam said. The daredevil added, "But it's done now, so cheers to Vito."

What Bam didn't realize is that Don's drama is far from over. Yesterday, Vito was released on bail yesterday after forking over $50 grand, but he's definitely not in the clear. He'll be back in court on October 22, when the trial is scheduled to resume.

Steve-O and Trishelle Play Doctor

8/9/2007 1:58 PM PDT
Is there a doctor in the house? TMZ caught up with Dr. Steve-O and beautiful "Real World" Nurse Trishelle, after their Laugh Factory gig last night. Jackass Steve-O took a page from the Michael Richards book-o-laffs and called himself -- not the audience -- the n-word during his act. "I would never call anybody that word, except myself, man," explained the stoney doofus.

So what's the diagnosis? "Medically speaking, I need to go take some bong hits," said Steve-O, who proved once again, that pot does not make you funny.

Bam Looks Like a Jackass

11/3/2006 3:04 PM PST
Either Bam Margera got caught under a flight of pigeons ... or he's the messiest painter alive.

We aren't sure why Bam rocked the "I just lost a paintball fight" look, but if you saw "Jackass: Number Two," perhaps you can imagine what crazy stunt he attempted that created this splattered fashion faux-pas. Whatever it was, we hope someone caught it on tape.

Bozo the Jackass?

10/23/2006 3:01 PM PDT
Long before Steve-O first stapled his scrotum to his leg, the "Jackass Number 2" star was actually juggling balls -- instead of inflicting pain to them. Seriously.

TMZ has obtained a photo of Steve-O, aka Steven Gilchrist Glover, during his training at Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Clown College back in 1997. Steve-O was one of only 33 people accepted into the program to which over 2000 applied. After graduation, Steve-O the Clown went on to an illustrious career as a performer for Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines.

Good thing he picked up that stapler.

Steve-O Does Comedy -- Without Injuring Himself

10/18/2006 3:47 PM PDT
TMZ fav Steve-O is capable of making us laugh in a multitude of ways -- and yes, most of them involve bodily harm. But now Steve-O is taking a crack at a safer form of comedy: stand-up.

"I just had a really big movie come out, and I'm trying to think, 'What do I next?'" Steve-O told the crowd at the Laugh Factory in Hollywood last Friday, where is he is known to take the stage from time to time. "I feel like I'm scrambling for any kind of career other than breaking bones and shoving s**t up my a**."

In his act, he talks about the rap song he recorded with Psychic Realm, which TMZ posted and allowed users to vote on -- 98% of readers thought the song was "dope." But apparently those results could be tainted: "I got all my MySpace friends, I'm like, 'Vote for me! Vote me dope!'"

Steve-O even reads off various comments TMZ readers wrote about him, including, "Steve-O should stick to stapling his balls to his leg."

Seems like he may have a career beyond that now.
