I think if Artie were actually in rehab, TMZ, Perez Hilton, even Howard 100 News would have broken the story. Just my opinion.
You should see how terrible he looked during the 50 Cent interview last week. He was wearing a cap to try to hide his face, but when you could see him his look and his actions were bizarre. Very unlike his low points in the past. Something really severe is going on with him at this point. You can see it.
Vargas, Artie was never off anything. I guarantee it. Do you really think he's gonna go through the ordeal of getting off heroine without any professionals to help him.
Dr Drew said it best, "He's either in rehab or he's still on it."
I think Artie's trying to rehab and get off the shit. But that may be too optimistic. All I know is something has to change, Howard is obviously annoyed and it's no longer just a day here and there, but it's several days at a time and it's becoming a pattern. I wish him the best, but he's really trying everyone's patience here. Here's to hoping he returns with a clear head and clean.So are we all just pretty convinced that Artie is back on Heroin or whatever?
They are pretty sure he is lying about his psychiatry visits so why wouldn't he lie about drugs?
I fear Artie is not long for this world.
I love him on the show and wish him the best but I think he needs to go and get himself healthy.
I would see no logical reason to wait until the new year. Unless they would say they tried to work it out, but he had to leave to not hurt Artie's chances of getting another gig.I hate to keep referring to SFN, especially consider 90% of the posts there are idiotic, but MANY seem to be suggesting that Artie was fired, and Howard won't reveal it until the New Year. I doubt it, but I have a feeling it's coming. I can imagine HR telling Artie he's on his last chance - get it together, or he's done in the New Year -- officially.
