So, let me get this straight: Artie has admitted to lying about his drug use, his relationship with Dana, his therapy sessions and his stint in "rehab" but he's mad at Gary because he thinks that one comment from Gary will give people a false impression of him as a liar?
Gary is waaaaay off base, for him to suggest Artie is somehow disrespecting the show is nuts. Artie shows up (mostly) and is funny so I really don't understand why he is upset with some BS here and there.
I'm an Artie fan, but it's getting harder to root for him. The core of his argument is simply bullshit. "No, no, I only lie on the air for entertainment purposes, and then it's only having to do with drugs." HUH? But he's so offended that Gary can't trust him anymore. Typical bullshitter's deflection. Ignore the real problem and concentrate on a technicality.
ARTIE IS A HEROIN ADDICT. He will crash and burn, and it will be ugly.
I love how Artie gets upset for people calling him a liar and then he admits to lying because he feels it is ok to lie to his boss about everything.
Two weeks ago Artie came back from a rehab and wants them to piss test him and now he is buying synthetic urine in case he's got to take a drug test.
Artie gets hurt by a slight yet he continually hurts everyone on the show and everythign in his life by lying, drug use, alcohol abuse, gambling everything but then somebody calls him on it and he gets pissed.
I love Artie on the show and think he's hilarious but his behavior is completely horrible and he should be called on this everyday.
