TMZ is reporting that Howard Stern sidekick and occasional actor Artie Lange was rushed to the hospital in New Jersey "for undisclosed reasons":
A rep for Lange tells TMZ:
"I can confirm that Artie is in the hospital. Artie has chosen to keep all information on this matter between him and his doctor. There will be no further comment."
Lange has been absent from "The Howard Stern Show" for the past few weeks.
Now, I'm no doctor, and I don't even play one on TV, but I'm going to go out on a limb and say this guy might not have been in perfect health to begin with. Years of binge eating and nose candy don't always make for the perfect specimen...jussayin'. Get well, Artie.
