Artie Lange Hospitalized After Suicide Attempt

The Howard Stern Show’s Artie Lange was hospitalized after a suicide attempt this past weekend in which he stabbed himself nine times, says the Post. Lange reportedly sustained six "hesitation wounds" and "three deep plunges." His mother reportedly found him bloodied in his Hoboken apartment on Saturday morning and called 911, at which point surgeons managed to save him. The comedian has famously battled drug and alcohol addictions; for an in-depth look at Lange’s past troubles, see Vanessa Grigoriadis’s Rolling Stone feature. [Post]
