Artie Lange tells Howard hes sorry “for being a lyin drug addict” in person

Artie was tweeting about his vacation in Paris this morning and about going to a Bruce Springsteen concert while there. He ended up posting a few interesting tweets about Howard Stern and a recent meeting they had:

“Recently got to Thank Howard for helping me live and said I’m sorry in person for being a lyin drug addict Can’t say where but he was great”

“Howard when you’re done with the taping I know great places for sushi in South Newark. Lol. Kick ass brother. Artie”

Possible studio appearance in November?

Artie Lange coming to TV on August 12th

The Nick and Artie Show gets a new studio, designed by the Man Caves show, a DIY Network program hosted by “licensed contractor” Jason Cameron and former NFL lineman Tony Siragusa that helps domesticated men turn a part of their homes into man-friendly hangouts.

Construction on that space finished two weeks ago, and The Nick & Artie Show is set to move in by the end of the month.

The new studio has all the trappings of a testosterone-laden man cave.

“They set it up so they have foosball games, a full kitchen, all this jazz,” said someone familiar with the studio’s design.

“It was an interesting deal,” said Mr. Peters. “[The space is] obviously a unique use, and that posed some unique challenges.”

The space will be used to both film and record Messrs. Lange and DiPaolo during their late-night show, which airs from 10 P.M. to 1 A.M.

They are going to launch the television part of the show on August 12th.

Artie Lange on JKL (Jimmy Kimmel Interview)

Former Howard Stern sidekick and Hoboken comedian Artie Lange appeared last night on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” to promote his new sports radio show with fellow comedian Nick DiPaolo.

The two spoke about their so-called ignorance of sports and Lange’s recovery from drug addiction, which he spoke about in October on David Letterman.

“You look great,” said Kimmel.

“Do I really?” shot back Lange. “Because I’m looking at the monitor and I think you’re bullshitting.”

Lange spoke about how rehabilitation centers attempt to use board games to take addicts’ minds off drugs.

“They’re say to a crack head, ‘Hey, we know you’re a crack head, but do you wanna play Monopoly?’ And the crack head goes, ‘No, I don’t want to play Monopoly, I want to smoke crack.'” he joked.

Artie Lange Plotting HUGE Radio/TV Comeback in September

Sources with direct knowledge of the negotiations tell us Artie would team with his pal and fellow comedian Nick DiPaolo for the talk show.

We’re told the people behind “The Dan Patrick Show” are putting the deal together — and like Dan’s show … Artie and Nick’s would be nationally simulcast on DirecTV and Fox Sports Radio.

Artie hasn’t had a permanent home on the air since leaving Stern in January, 2010 — but when he guest hosted an FSR show last week … he said he definitely wants to come back to radio.

It’s not a done deal yet … but we’re told both sides are anxious to make it happen in time for a September premiere.

Stay tuned.
