I'm not sure if you knew this about me but I'm a HUGE Howard Stern fan!!! I've been listening since my freshman year in High School (14 years). Are there any fans out there that heard the show this morning? It was crazy!!!! Comedian, Artie Lange walked out of the studio after an argument and major outburst at his personal assistant, Teddy.
The whole thing unfolded on the air this morning and it was scary. Lange began to express his disdain for his assistant of nearly two years because of recent money issues and that he didn't do his job well. Teddy retorted by implying there's more to the job than meets the eye.
The two are slated to travel to Amsterdam this evening and the squabble began over setting up Lange's travel accommodations. However, the in-studio dispute quickly escalated into a discussion about how much Lange finances Teddy. As the argument continued, Lange became enraged and physically lashed out at Teddy...Thankfully people restrained Artie and he didn't physically harm Teddy but it was really close!
Artie offered his resignation to howard - and he told him to go home and and cool off.
Teddy returned to the studio several minutes later and said there was overreacting from everyone, but did not downplay the seriousness of the situation. Show producer Gary Dell'Abate came in to analyze the situation, but he and Stern admitted they "did not know what to make of it all." He also said that after it all went down he was shaking...He couldn't believe how Artie handled himself.
Do you think artie wil come back to the show?
Do you think Sirius should suspend/terminate Artie?
Do you think that Artie and Teddy will make-up and go to amsterdam?
