January 7, 2010 at 6:28 AM (PT)
SIRIUS XM RADIO HOWARD STERN sidekick ARTIE LANGE's absence and hospitalization was the result of a suicide attempt, the NEW YORK POST is reporting in today's editions.
The paper's PAGE SIX gossip column says that LANGE stabbed himself nine times, with three of the wounds described as "deep." He was discovered by his mother SATURDAY morning at his HOBOKEN, NJ apartment and taken to a hospital.
On THURSDAY morning's show, STERN co-host ROBIN QUIVERS, who has spoken to LANGE, reported that LANGE is "doing well physically"; STERN himself read only the headline and opening of the POST story before saying that he could not continue, adding that LANGE's "demons run deeper than I thought."
