What Happened to Artie Lange’s Nose?

A bit of an Artie Lange updated for all who have been following the Artie Lange drug saga. Artie will be allowed to continue his drug court probation despite having been arrested for violating its terms.

According to the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office, Lange has been held at the Superior Court in Newark, New Jersey and will be held there for a couple weeks before being transferred to another facility. Where to, exactly, is not clear.

Lange was arrested on May 21, 2019, at Freedom House, the halfway house where he was staying. The Essex County Sheriff’s Office said that Lange was sober and “coherent” at the time of his arrest. The manner in which Lange violated his probation terms is not clear. Some reports stated that Lange was caught with heroin, but the sheriff’s office denied this.

Recently Lange was filmed by a fan (video above) while pumping gas. The video of Lange began circulating online last week, showing his now-flattened nose, which is common among people who have abused drugs. Lange has admitted to a history of snorting cocaine and heroin.

Recent Artie Lange Mug Shot

Plastic surgeon Paul Nassif, from the reality TV show “Botched,” said this week that he could fix comedian Artie Lange’s flattened nose.

Nassif told TMZ that Lange’s condition, called a “saddle nose deformity” is a result of a collapsed septum. If Lange can get permanently clean, Nassif said, he would be willing to fix it.

Joey Boots, 49, found dead by fellow Wack Packer High Pitch Erik

Recently we lost Eric the Actor and Riley Martin. Now Howard Stern regular Joseph Bassolino known as Joey Boots, was found dead at his Bronx apartment building, TMZ reported Friday. He was 49.

Joey Boots, a television-radio personality, and member of the Wack Pack, was found dead in his apartment by High Pitch Erik — who found Joey while broadcasting on a live podcast.

According to media reports, High Pitch Erik and the building manager discovered Joey Boots after he failed to show up for an appearance on a podcast. Erik says he found Joey slumped over in a chair and ice cold without a pulse.

Medics were called and reportedly pronounced Joseph Bassolino dead at the scene, TMZ reported. A cause of death is not yet known.

Rest in peace Joey.

Beetlejuice on TMZ

Howard Stern fans are gonna LOVE this clip — Jake Gyllenhaal, on the other hand, might not … because his former co-star Beetlejuice is talking some serious smack.

TMZ interviews Beetlejuice in NYC yesterday and asks him about Jake Gyllenhaal. Beet said, “We got to know each other. When he sucked my c**k.”

He added, “[Jake] got knocked the f**k out ’cause I hit him!”

Hulk Hogan calling in the FBI over Sex Tape

It’s proving to be quite the soap opera, and now the latest in the Hulk Hogan sex tape saga is that the video was reportedly leaked by ‘an unhappy ex-employee of his best friend Bubba the Love Sponge.’

Despite the reporting by Howard 100 News Reporter Jon Lieberman who claimed there would be no criminal charges from the sex tape leak, Hogan plans to contact the FBI over the tape.

With rumors that Shock Jock Bubba the Love Sponge may have leaked the tape, Hogan is determined to get to the bottom of who sent it to Gawker.

A source told TMZ that Hogan had tried to report the crime to local police in Florida but because of the statute of limitations and the nature of the offence, officers could not help him.

Hogan’s lawyer added the wrestler will meet agents on Monday.

Meanwhile source told Radar: ‘Even though Bubba knew how much the Hulk sex tape would be worth, he didn’t stab his friend in the back and he’s not the one who released it.

‘It’s a former employee of Bubba’s who was outraged when he left Sirius to go back to terrestrial radio. He wanted payback.’

The source added: ‘Bubba didn’t secure the tape properly and showed it to a bunch of people. And that’s why they’re all in this mess now.’

Artie Lange on TMZ (Video)

Artie Lange is FIRED UP about the possibility of returning to a full-time radio gig — and tells TMZ he’s very confident his old boss Howard Stern will have his back.

ange was outside Dan Tana’s in Hollywood with his friend and potential new radio partner Nick DiPaolo last night — when we asked how Howard would feel about his on-air comeback.

“Howard’s the greatest guy in the world” … Artie said … adding, “He’s been supportive of everything that’s happened and he’s been a good man to me … so hopefully he’ll be supportive of this … but you never know.”

As TMZ first reported, the people behind Artie’s project are hoping to lock a deal that would nationally simulcast the new show on DirecTV and Fox Sports Radio.

So far, we’re told … no official deal has been reached.

Howard Stern advertiser Ashley Madison offers Tiger Woods 5Mil

TMZ has obtained a contract sent to Tiger by the people over at AshleyMadison — a website for people who want to secretly cheat on their spouses — offering him $5 million to provide services in connection with the “advertisement, endorsement, sale and promotion” of the website.

The site’s honchos never call Tiger out for cheating … they just think Tiger and his self-proclaimed “personal sins” are a perfect match for their cheeky agenda.

Howard Stern was doing the live reads for Ashley Madison on the Stern show, but then they gave the duties to Artie Lange, since Howard got married.
