Artie Lange on Howard Stern’s New Book: Two Chapters Are About Me

Artie Lange released a new book on July 17, 2018, titled “Wanna Bet?: A Degenerate Gambler’s Guide to Living on the Edge.” Wanna Bet? is Artie’s third memoir which was co-written by Anthony Bozza, like the previous two.

A description of the book from Amazon:

The stories found in Wanna Bet? paint a portrait of a man who would just as quickly bet tens of thousands of dollars on a coin toss as he would a well thought out NBA or NFL wager. Along for the ride are colorful characters from Artie’s life who live by the same creed, from a cast of childhood friends to peers like comedian and known gambler Norm McDonald.

“I get the same jolt of adrenaline when I lose as I do when I win,” he insists. “That’s because when I lose, I lose big. My losses are like a huge ship passing by, trailing a wake of chaos, and there I am, having the time of my life, just an asshole on a Jet Ski catching air off the backwash.”

Howard Stern’s new book will reportedly be out Sept 25th and Artie Lange is curious to see how much of him is in it. “I’m curious to see what it is, you know. [Howard] is a master of marketing. Two chapters are supposed to be about me,” says Lange.”

“I failed upwards,” says Lange.” When the other comics were there, Gary went around and told everybody the only time Howard doesn’t want you to talk is when there’s a guest in.” Part of the job was writing jokes for Howard which Artie really wasn’t very good at. “I stunk at talking in his voice, I just couldn’t do it. I’ve always been like that, I can’t write for other people.” Lange, thinking he was going to lose the gig, gets called in by Howard and Gary. So being a failure at writing worked out for Artie because as he said, “I got to co-host the show.”

“Howard says, ‘Listen, none of the stuff you’re writing is working out.’” Artie apologized and was ready to get his things when Stern continued, “‘so I’m going to leave your mic on all the time.’” Both Lange and Dell’abatte were shocked.

“What??? Howard says, ‘No one else has that, even Robin’s mic I turn down sometimes, so the only two people’s who’s mic is going to be on all the time is me and you.’” Gary later said to Artie, “Art, you should be flattered because this show is everything to him and he’s putting it in your hands.”

Howard Stern Writing New “Tell-All” Book Which Will Be Released On September 25, 2018.

Howard Stern is writing a “tell-all” book, according to Radar Online. This project would be the third in a series of books for publishing company Simon and Schuster, and a continuation of his first tome titled Private Parts which was published in 1993.

Stern has been alluding to a “secret project” on his radio show for quite some time, and Radar Online learned that this might just be a new tell-all book.

Radar reported that over the past two months, Howard has spoken of being “overly excited” for the project. He also noted on his radio show, according to Radar, that he had to “look through old pictures” for the project.

The site reported that on July 17, a fan who claimed to work as a librarian said he stumbled upon an “untitled nonfiction” book added to the Simon & Schuster Canada Publishers’ list. The September 25 release date allegedly listed the author as the radio host. Radar reported that within several days after the discovery, the author was changed to “to be confirmed.”

Private Parts was released by the publisher in 1993 and it was the fastest-selling book in the company’s history. It was later adapted into a hit film in 1997 starring Stern and his radio show staff as themselves.

In late 1995, Stern published a second book called Miss America.

Radar reported that Stern’s new tell-all could “address a lot of controversies over the years, including his fall-out from former sidekick Artie Lange, his first divorce, possible health issues, and rumoured upcoming retirement.

Artie Lange commented on Howard’s upcoming book, “I’m looking forward to reading Howard’s book. I’m really curious what the hell he would put in there.”

“I’m on probation now until I’m 54,” Lange, now 50, said. “That’s a long time for a junkie not to f uck up. It’s incentive.”

Stern is expected to write about his stint on “America’s Got Talent,” and how he met and married his second wife, Beth Ostrosky in 2008.

TRUMP BOOK ‘FIRE AND FURY’ REVELATION: Trump told Melania that he would not win the election

Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House was written by Journalist Michael Wolff after he allegedly spoke with more than 200 individuals in President Trump’s inner circle.

Fire and Fury documents the first year of Donald Trump’s presidency. CNN got excerpts of the book – in which Trump’s former senior strategist Steve Bannon once called the President’s daughter Ivanka “dumb as a brick.”

Bannon, who left the White House to return to Breitbart News, didn’t respond to requests for comment but a source close to him reportedly did not deny the insult. Here are some of the excerpts from the book we found particularly interesting:

  1. Trump wondered what a golden shower was after hearing reports of the intelligence dossier that alleges that Russian security forces have compromising details about the president. “Having dispensed with Jeff Zucker, the president of the United States went on to speculate on what was involved with a golden shower,” Wolff writes.
  2. Trump didn’t want to win, and no one in his campaign thought he would win. “Well, it would only be a problem if we won,” ­former national security adviser Michael Flynn assured his friends about his decision to accept $45,000 for a speech in Russia. Trump reassured Melania that he would not win the election. On election night, when it became clear that he would win, “Melania was in tears—and not of joy.”
  3. Trump’s daughter Ivanka described Trump’s hair as a perfectly engineered hairdo that takes many steps to complete. “She often described the mechanics behind it to friends: an absolutely clean pate—a contained island after scalp-reduction surgery—surrounded by a furry circle of hair around the sides and front, from which all ends are drawn up to meet in the center and then swept back and secured by a stiffening spray,” the book says.
  4. Trump eats at McDonald’s so often out of paranoia and because he is a germaphobe. “Long afraid of being poisoned, he would say that one reason why he liked to eat at McDonald’s was that nobody knew he was coming and the food was safely prepared,” the book says.
  5. Trump would mention getting in bed with other women. “Trump liked to say that one of the things that made life worth living was getting your friends’ wives into bed,” the book claims.
  6. As a candidate, Trump had no interest in learning about the Constitution, which he knew very little about. “I got as far as the Fourth Amendment before his finger is pulling down on his lip and his eyes are rolling back in his head,” said Sam Nunberg, a former adviser to the Trump campaign.

Trump responded to Bannon’s alleged statements curtly. “Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my Presidency,” President Trump wrote in a statement distributed by the White House. “When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind.”

Jackie Martling: Some People Are Going To Say “What a BACKSTABBER!” When They Read My Book

Comedian Jackie “The Joke Man” Martling was the head writer for The Howard Stern Show from 1986-2001. Martling says he was earning just shy of $578,000 and decided to ask for an average of $1 million over five years. K-Rock’s general manager Tom Chiusano offered $611,000 and finally bumped it up to $650,000 although he admits he would have settled for $800,000.

K-Rock gave Martling a deadline and warned that if it wasn’t signed the deal was off the table. Martling writes that his lawyer advised him to not go into work so he emailed Stern to let him know he wouldn’t be in that Monday, the rest is history.

Now, in his new book, “The Joke Man: Bow to Stern,” Martling gives Stern fans insights into some of the show’s greatest moments.

Do you think Howard will read your book?

“I think he’d have to read it out of curiosity. I don’t know if he will address it on the air but it’s the elephant in the room. I have not heard from him at all. There are a couple of stories in there I’m sure he’s not going to be thrilled about, but tough noogies.”

How did you come together with Howard?

“I sent him a set of my stand-up records in 1982. He called me up and I spent a day with him in February of 1983. He said, “You’re a lot of fun, come back next week.” For three years I did that for free, but I was getting promoted on WNBC. When he got fired and went to K-Rock, I had been passing him notes. It was so gradual from sitting in and laughing to passing notes. When he was going to mornings on K-Rock, he called me up and said, “I need a price for you two days a week. I want you to come in and do your thing with the notes.” That was our entire business conversation for 15 years.”

Your exit from the show was legendary. Did you address that in the book?

“Yes, I put everything in there about my salary when I left, what I asked for and what really happened. I want people to know the true story. There’s not an exaggerated or false word. So many people think I walked out leaving them high and dry like all of sudden I just didn’t show up on a Monday. I had walked out like three or four times. Each time they knew I wasn’t coming in. I left because I didn’t get my contract or because they wouldn’t negotiate with me. I’m a good soldier. For 15 years I was there in my seat at 6 a.m. every day with very few exceptions.”

Were you surprised by Howard’s move to satellite radio in 2006?

“I always thought the fact that we went right up to the censor line made the show. I never thought he’d go to Sirius because the whole show was dancing around the rules.”

Do you feel people will suspect this is a tell-all book?

“Of course they are going to immediately think it’s got to be a tell-all. I’m sure some people are going to say, “Jackie wrote a trashy book,” without reading a page. That’s a barrier that was going to be there no matter what I did. It’s meant to be a memoir that goes deeper on stories fans already know but it’s not negative. There’s going to be a lot of people saying, “Man, you didn’t spill any beans on the Stern Show or about Howard.” Other people are going to say, “Man, what a backstabber! You said so much stuff about the show.” Hopefully, it will start some kind of dialogue.”

Artie Lange writes SHOCKING forward to Jackie’s new book “The Joke Man: Bow to Stern”

THE JOKE MAN: BOW TO STERN is a memoir on Jackie’s life. From trying to make it as a New York stand-up comic to working on the biggest radio show of all time, The Howard Stern Show, “The Joke Man” shares his personal stories. Jackie doesn’t hold back in his new book, revealing why he left the show and his falling out with Stern and the staff.

Radar Online obtained an early copy of the book which is set to be released October 24, 2017. Radar reports that Artie Lange “snubs the King of All Media” in the forward to the book. Lange, apparently he went on to highlight that Howard Stern was NOT the best part of The Stern Show, rather, it was Martling.

“I found out later my influence wasn’t Howard. It was Howard a lot, but was the sensibility Jackie brought to the show,” Lange wrote in the Forward for Martling’s upcoming book, “The Joke Man: Bow to Stern”. He added, “that’s been my style, with much thanks to him.”

“Way back, if you asked any of my buddies who we’d like to hang out with, it always would have been Jackie,” Lange revealed. “In my stand-up and talk show appearances and even the sketches I wrote on Howard Stern, the biggest influence was probably Jackie Martling. Because of what he brought to Stern, the political incorrectness, the subtle stuff he used to do in the background. That’s what all my premises were. He was truly dangerous.”

Artie Lange thinks “Howard has lost his mind”

Artie Lange Crash and BurnOn a recent episode of the Artie Quitter podcast, Artie talked about how Howard Stern has so completely cut him off that he even refused to accept “top dollar” advertising money to promote his memoir, Crash and Burn.

He didn’t accept advertising for my book. He wouldn’t even hear the commercial. Its different than hating me. Howard is pretending I don’t exist. I stopped caring because he’s clearly a lunatic. – Artie Lange

Artie went on to say how Touchstone, a division of Simon & Schuster, came to him and said they have never had a company turn down their advertising until Stern. Howard apparently refused to play a 30 second pretaped commercial for Crash and Burn.

His recent rant from the Artie Quitter podcast got picked up by some major news outlets. Opie from Opie Radio invited Artie on to discuss his relationship with Howard Stern. He referenced the rise in power of Marci Turk, an efficiency expert who fast climbed within the ranks of Stern’s organization three years ago after bonding with Howard over a time-management system called Getting Things Done.

Describing Turk as ‘a 34-year-old redhead who basically read a book that Howard liked.’ Lange noted the awkward dynamic in Marci Turk telling people, “You can’t talk to Howard unless you talk to me first, you need permission,” adding, “These are guys who worked with him for 20 years!”

He said that Stern’s loyal producer Gary Dell’Abate, 55, must feel ’emasculated’ after Turk ‘took over his office’ and ‘may or may not be getting more money.’

Howard has lost his mind. I think my old friend Howard — he was my hero, and became a coworker, and became a friend, and — I think he’s lost his mind. If the stories I hear are accurate … And I don’t listen a lot so I don’t get to hear, Ellen Degeneres, he loves her dancing, and that is sickening. I couldn’t imagine, that seems hypocritical. – Artie Lange

Artie has not been heard on The Howard Stern Show since battling mental health issues back in 2009.

Robin Quivers New Book Vegucation of Robin

Robin Quivers, who is 60 has credited her vegan diet, a choice she made back in 2007, with helping her lose more than 70 pounds in just 6 months.

The Vegucation of RobinFrom the books synopsis it’s clear Robin is looking to inspire people and lead them to try the vegan lifestyle.

“On her sometimes rocky, though endearingly hysterical, path to newfound health, Quivers discovered the power of the produce aisle in changing her body and her mindset,” the synopsis reads.

Charting her inspiring road to wellness, ‘The Vegucation of Robin’ describes her transformation inside and out, and, including ninety of her favorite vegan recipes, she encourages readers to join her in putting their health first.”

Artie Lange’s new book titled Crash and Burn

Artie Lange talked about writing his second book, tentatively titled ‘Crash and Burn,’ during Thursday’s appearance on Joe Matarese’s ‘Fixing Joe’ podcast.

“It’s going to be called ‘Crash and Burn’ as of right now, and it’s going to be about—the crashing and the burning. That’s a working title. It’s going to have a lot of stories where I’m baring my soul a little bit. There’ll be some stuff from my teenage years and just stuff I remember, like there were kids I looked up to and I realize that my psyche was screwed up at an early age.”

“I feel like a new person. Ive never felt this good in my life. Never—mentally, physically—I mean, I could still use a few sit-ups at this point.”

Artie Update: Second book coming soon

Howard Stern Show writer Sal Governale says Artie Lange is currently working on his second book, a follow up to his bestselling ‘Too Fat to Fish’.

When an audience member asked Richard and Sal at their comedy show if Artie would return to the Howard Stern Show, Governale gave this reply.

“All right, I’m going to tell you about Artie Lange. A lot of people ask us this and I’ll tell you personally. After Artie went through his unfortunate bout of personal demons, I had the opportunity to speak to him and Artie is really working on making himself better. He suffers from clinical depression. Artie is just trying to better himself. And he really is working hard at it. He’s working on his second book.”

They Call Me Baba Booey paperback has new Artie chapter

Howard Stern Show producer Gary “Baba Booey” Dell’Abate has released a paperback version of his autiobiography featuring a new chapter about his trip to Afghanistan with Artie Lange.

The additional chapter in Dell’Abate’s bestselling memoir ‘They Call Me Baba Booey,’ details his 2009 trip to entertain the troops along with Dave Attell, Nick DiPaolo, Jim Florentine and Lange, who was co-host of the Howard Stern Show at the time.

While the new chapter features some discussion of Dell’Abate’s pre-trip anxieties and how cool it felt to shoot a machine gun, what Howard Stern Show fans will likely be drawn to most are the details of Artie Lange’s airport breakdown and how it changed his relationship with Dell’Abate forever.

After the gang of comics missed their flight home after four days roughing it downwind from a literal pond of feces, and learned they would have to wait more than 24 hours for their next flight, Lange went ballistic. Dell’Abate recounts how Lange, who was struggling with heroin addiction, had somehow scored and ingested a handful of Valium at the airport, and then set off on a “mean addict” rant, accusing Dell’Abate of exploiting him by taking video of the trip.

“You piece-of-s**t c**ksucker!” he screamed. “You know what you are doing! I know what you are about! I don’t trust you! I should kick the s**t out of you right now!” (‘They Call Me Baba Booey, paperback, p. 289)

Lange and Dell’Abate spoke about the fight to some extent on the Howard Stern Show when they returned from the USO tour in 2009, but Booey never spoke on air about the way Lange’s behavior made him feel the way that he does in this new chapter.

“I looked at him a different way after that,” says Dell’Abate. “It was a turning point for me in how I thought he felt about me.”
