Seth Rogen and Judd Apatow appeared together on the Howard Stern Show to talk about their new movie “Funny People.” But when the conversation came around to Seth’s former “Knocked-Up” co-star Katherine Heigl, the two answered facetiously. They revealed to Howard that the controversial comments Heigl made in a 2007 Vanity Fair interview apparently still burn, although Apatow seemed inclined to forgive.
The high-energy and humorous interview covered a number of topics including what it was like when Judd Apatow and Adam Sandler used to be roommates during their early days in LA, about Seth being bashed on “Entourage” and dealing with the pressures of success.

Bellefonte, PA 16823
I am currently serving time at Rockview State Prison for an aggravated assault charge. I received a 4-8 year sentence for punching a man one time. He sustained a broken nose and seven stitches to the back of his head from hitting the ground. But damn, all that time for a single punch? You’re probably wondering if I had a public pretender or not, right? The answer to that is no. I had a payed attorney from Philly PA by the name of Daine Grey, who promised both me and my wife that I would not be facing any jail time. Boy was he ever so wrong. You better believe my wife gave him a piece of her mind. From what I understand, he has an appeal in on my behalf. I am confident however, that if my case makes it back to court, my sentence will be reduced. For God sakes, there are inmates here that shot people and got less time than I did. Well, you heard enough about my legal problems. I now want to tell you a bit about the real me. I am 36 years old and married to my beautiful wife Michele. We have been married for 14 years and have a 13 year old son named Ryan. I grew up in Bayonne NJ and was raised by my dad. I attended St. Anthony’s high school in Jersey City NJ, where I was the starting forward for the men’s varsity basketball team. We were coached by Bob Hurley and ranked #1 in the nation. At the end of my senior year, I received a 4 year scholarship to play Division I basketball at Duquesne University, located in Pittsburgh PA. Let’s just say it didn’t go as planned and I wound up getting kicked out. Years later, I was selling cars at a Honda dealership in Jersey City NJ where my brother Bobby was working as finance manager, I was doing real well, but there was something I wanted to do and that something was to be my own boss. That dream became a reality when I happened to meet a man by the name of Lester Green, you see, Lester was a dwarf and funny as hell. So what I did was bring him on the Howard Stern show. He is now known by millions around the world as, “Beetlejuice” and I am his manager. If you would like to see our website go to:
If you're wondering why I'm looking for a pen pal being married, it's because you can only hear I love you, I miss you, and can't wait until you come home, but so many times. Besides it also hurts too much.
Thanks to Lobosco for the info. RIP Sean. I met Sean who escorted Beet to the Shrine for a tour a few years ago. Good dude.

A member of Howard Stern's wack pack was pulled from her penthouse in cuffs after cops received a call she was acting erratically and was possibly armed, police sources said.
Ivy Supersonic - whose real name is Ivy Silberstein - screamed wildly at police as she was loaded into an ambulance outside her luxury Union Square building at 1:30 p.m., witnesses said.
"She was screaming and cursing a lot at them," said Jose Menoscal, a truck driver who was parked on E. 14th St. "She was bleeding from the arms ... she was handcuffed to a wheelchair as the police rolled her out."
The heavily-tattooed Silberstein, who investigators believe sliced herself in the arm with a knife she's been toting in recent days, was taken to Bellevue Hospital for observation. She was not charged with a crime.
Silberstein's removal from the Zeckendorf Towers marked the end of a bizarre 24 hours for the fashion designer, who posted frenzied messages on her Facebook page alleging that Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly was conspiring against her.
"Who ever [sic] has a copy of the voice notes file send to FBI," she typed. "UR very smart - send same tapes to Homeland and CIA protect me from Ray Kelly FedEx it to Obama now!!!"
Silberstein, 42, posted one last time moments before she surrendered, asking people to call her lawyer. Police sources said Silberstein's doctor called 911 to say that his patient, the daughter of famed attorney Jerome Silberstein, was bipolar and off her medication.
This was not the first brush with the law for Silberstein, who most recently was issued a summons last month for sneaking a recording device into Bernie Madoff's sentencing.
The pitch was widely ridiculed, both on the Howard Stern show and in the mainstream sports media. The phrase "Baba Booey" has since become the term for a terribly flubbed First Pitch.
On July 17, 2009, Gary put the ball, as well as the Mets jersey that he wore for the pitch, up for auction to support his Lifebeat charity. After several days of intense bidding, Taylor Mitchell, owner of satellite radio retailer TSS-Radio, won the auction for $18,000.
"I bought the ball for 4 reasons: The proceeds go to a great charity, the ball and jersey provide great publicity towards fellow Stern fans, and we really want to keep this ball alive and viewable to those that wish to see it. Plus, if you are as big a Stern fan as me, this is an important piece of history," said Taylor.
The ball and jersey are on display and available for viewing by appointment at TSS-Radio's offices in Chicago. "If you are a Stern fan in Chicago and would like to come over to visit, drop us a line, we will happily show you the ball and hook you up with a t-shirt. If you need help with your satellite radio setup we can also help with that. We also have setup a Facebook fan page for the ball and the pitch, which you can find athttp://www.facebook.com/pages/Baba-Booey-First-Pitch-Blunder/126264485785."

Rick's Cabaret New York has an all-female softball team that play in Central Park.
They challenge all-male teams, and last Sunday the opponents were the cast and crew of FOX New Channel's "Red Eye" Show captained by on-air host Greg Gutfeld.
As usual for a game with the Rick's Cabaret Girls, no one seems to know the final score. "We just play for fun," said Rick's Girl Marci. "We've been known to use our bodies to distract the guys, and it seems to work."
The best part of the game is always the post-game party at the popular midtown Rick's Cabaret club (50 West 33rd Street).
"No hard feelings if we win," said Rick's Girl Cathy. "At the party we girls all take off our clothes and dance for the guys, and nobody remembers anything about the game."
Rick's Cabaret is known as the club of choice for celebrities and pro athletes. Several players from The NY Yankees and the NY Mets can be frequently seen at Rick's Cabaret New York.

Capt. Janks' lawyer getting prank reimbursement calls
His client, known for similar capers, is having theft charges from 5 counties consolidated
By Robert H. Orenstein
OF THE MORNING CALL
July 19, 2009
You almost had to expect this.
The lawyer for Capt. Janks -- the one-time ''Howard Stern Show'' radio personality who gained notoriety for making bogus calls to news shows -- is getting crank calls seeking reimbursement for Janks' no-show performances.
''We are getting prank phone calls from Pittsburgh, Texas,'' said Thomas Carluccio, Janks' lawyer from Plymouth Meeting, Montgomery County, recounting where some of the calls originated.
Janks -- his real name is Thomas Cipriano -- from North Wales, Montgomery County, faces theft charges for getting paid in advance to appear at bars and restaurants. In each case, authorities say, the comedian promised promotional spots on Stern's show and a free satellite radio. But he never showed, according to police.
Meanwhile, charges from five Pennsylvania counties are being consolidated in Montgomery County Court.
''Where the evidence shows a pattern of a common planned design or a scheme that shows a criminal enterprise, the courts allow them to be brought together in one place,'' said Bradford Richman, an assistant district attorney prosecuting the cases. ''It would be a waste of judicial resources to try this in four or five different counties.''
After the media reported the first charges in Montgomery and Bucks counties this spring, other business owners contacted police to report their problems. That led to additional charges in Philadelphia, Berks and Chester counties, Richman said.
In all, Cipriano faces theft charges in 10 incidents where he generally received from $250 to $350 in advance, Richman said; nine businesses -- one paid for two performances -- gave Cipriano a total of about $3,700.
Charges in Schuylkill County were dropped this spring, Carluccio said, after Cipriano repaid the bar. Court records indicate charges were dropped.
At least two business owners in Delaware and New Jersey pressed charges. Richman said those cases cannot be tried in Pennsylvania.
Carluccio tried to settle the Pennsylvania cases out of court, saying criminal charges should be dropped because Cipriano broke a contract, which is a civil matter.
Richman disagreed: ''When you have this number of cases, there is just no way this is a civil matter.''
''If we can't resolve the issues, then we will go to trial,'' Carluccio said.
Carluccio, a longtime fan of Stern's show, said he has been representing Cipriano for free. He met Cipriano last year through a mutual friend, who said Cipriano needed help in an unrelated legal matter.
Carluccio said Cipriano was in drug rehabilitation in February, and Cipriano, 43, told Stern on the air that he was addicted to painkillers.
Cipriano spent 22 days in Montgomery County jail without bail after police filed the first charges. He was released May 14.
''At some point in time, his whole life crashed,'' Carluccio said.
Janks' supporters -- including a Stern cohort, comedian Artie Lange -- have been helping raise money to reimburse bars and restaurants, Carluccio said.
Lange raised $8,500 and has committed another $1,500 from benefit shows, Carluccio said. Lange could not be reached for comment, but he has discussed the benefits on Stern's show.
With the money, Cipriano has repaid seven bar and club owners a total of about $3,000, Carluccio said.
Another Lange benefit planned for Thursday in Delaware County was postponed, Carluccio said, adding he never expected the magnitude of Cipriano's problems.
''I had no idea,'' he said, ''it would develop the way it has.''

Stern sidekick postpones show; theft charges mount
Thursday, July 16, 2009
By Carl Hessler Jr., firstname.lastname@example.org
NORRISTOWN – As theft-related charges mount against him in Berks, Chester and Montgomery counties, nationally known radio show prankster Captain Janks has postponed a benefit performance that was to raise money to refund bar owners for personal appearances he allegedly ignored.
Thomas Michael Cipriano, 43, who portrays prankster Captain Janks on the Howard Stern radio show, postponed a benefit performance scheduled for July 23 at the Deck Restaurant in Essington, according to his lawyer, Thomas E. Carluccio.
“The benefit show was to raise money to refund tri-state area bar and club owners for appearances Cipriano did not attend,” Carluccio said in a news release. “Captain Janks has been systematically refunding the owners in Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey, in return for the cases against him being resolved.”
Carluccio claimed, to date, Janks has paid about $3,000 to seven bar owners.
In court papers, authorities from multiple jurisdictions accused Cipriano of defrauding bar owners by taking payments, between $350 and $500, for personal appearances and not showing up. Some of the bars are in West Reading, Plymouth and Cheltenham.
However, Carluccio claimed a proposed agreement to dismiss three criminal cases in Bucks County in exchange for Janks making refunds was recently withdrawn and the cases transferred to Montgomery County for prosecution.
“The result of the change means if Janks were to raise the entire amount of the funds to resolve the potential claims against him, he could still be prosecuted in every case,” claimed Carluccio, promising Janks will work with Montgomery County prosecutors to resolve the outstanding cases as quickly as possible.
“If the cases cannot be resolved, Cipriano will be forced to go to trial to prove his innocence,” Carluccio added.
Currently, Montgomery County prosecutors are handling about 10 alleged theft-related cases against Janks, comprising nine victims from five counties, including Berks, Montgomery, Chester, Bucks and Philadelphia. Under state law, one county can handle criminal matters from several jurisdictions when the crimes represent an alleged course of conduct.
“We will not simply drop all of these cases because Mr. Cipriano has a benevolent friend who has given him the money to pay these people back. You can’t commit thefts and get away with it because you happen to have the money to pay people back,” responded Assistant District Attorney Bradford Richman. “We don’t drop charges because a defendant waltzes in and says to.”
“This case is in the criminal justice system because of a criminal course of conduct involving many, many victims in many, many counties,” Richman said. “Whether it goes to trial is up to Mr. Cipriano and I am open to any resolution which addresses all of the interests in this case, including the interests of the citizens of Pennsylvania.”
Cipriano, according to Carluccio, apologizes to the bar owners for not being able to attend scheduled performances. Funds “generously raised by Artie Lange of the Howard Stern Show” on Cipriano’s behalf will be distributed to bar owners with legitimate claims in New Jersey and Delaware, Carluccio said. Lange is another comedian and radio show personality.
Cipriano, of Fort Washington Avenue in Upper Dublin, previously pleaded not guilty to charges of theft by deception, receiving stolen property and deceptive business practices in connection with incidents that occurred in Montgomery County between December 2008 and February 2009.
Cipriano, according to a criminal complaint filed by Plymouth detectives, contacted the owner of The Old Mansion House in December and offered to perform at a March 13, 2009, promotion at the bar.
“Cipriano promoted himself (to the owner) as the guy that makes the Howard Stern phony phone calls to TV and radio talk shows,” Plymouth Detective Jeffrey M. McGee Sr. alleged in the criminal complaint.
The owner of the Plymouth business agreed to the event believing it would increase business. Cipriano collected a check for $350 covering the promotion fee, court papers alleged. However, Cipriano never canceled the appearance and didn’t show up for the gig.
Cipriano, who previously listed addresses on North Third Street and Royal Avenue in North Wales, allegedly engaged in similar conduct in February when he promised to perform at the Edge Hill Tavern on Limekiln Pike in the Glenside section of Cheltenham but never showed up.
Cipriano remains free on $2,500 bail pending trial.
Court papers filed by detectives indicate Stern confronted Cipriano about the allegations on-air during a Feb. 23 radio show segment entitled, “The Oxy Made Him Do It.”

In this weeks Steppin' Out magazine, bloated Howard Stern sidekick, Artie Lange is named "Asshole Of The Week" for his recent DUI arrest and Lexapro excuse. See text below and column attached:
Too Fat To Fish? or... Too High Too Drive?
BY CHAUNCE HAYDEN
No celebrity has had the distinction of “Asshole of the Week” honors more than Howard Stern flunky Artie Lange. In fact, rarely does a week go by when this bloated comic doesn’t do something moronically stupid. Thus, I do my best to restrain myself and try to keep “Asshole” consideration for other celebrity standouts equally deserving. However, I cannot restrain myself any longer. Artie... you’re an asshole!
This past Monday, Lange, who in the past has lied about his drug use, addressed his recent arrest for DUI in Toms River, N.J. by proclaiming that he had been clean and sober for months. Here’s a tip for you rookies out there: Drug addicts lie, and they lie often. Lange is a self-admitted drug addict. Let’s move on.
Lange’s attorney has ordered him to keep his mouth shut about the charges, but that didn’t stop this dope from opening his big mouth once again and swearing that he blew a 0.0 on the Breathalyzer test that was given at the scene of the arrest. Yes, Artie, the Toms River Police Department has nothing better to do than to arrest innocent slobs like yourself. Maybe the cops were just big fans and wanted your autograph, though I doubt it since your fans seems to be shrinking faster than a hamburger placed anywhere near that vacuum you call a mouth. How stupid do you think we are?
So, where does that leave us? What could poor Artie have done wrong that would have led to his arrest for DUI? After all, there’s no way Lange had any booze or illicit drugs in his massive system. Hmm. Thinking... thinking... wait! Fatso apparently just remembered that his erratic driving could possibly be due to the antidepressant Lexapro! Phew! That’s it! Lexapro is to blame.
Good one, Artie! One thing, though: I’ve been taking Lexapro for three years, and I don’t ever recall being arrested for smashing into another car and failing a roadside DUI test. Indeed, Lexapro pulls you out of the gloom and doom of everyday life but causing you to drive into other cars, it does not. Nice try, chubby.
Artie Lange is scheduled to appear in court on Friday, July 17 unless, of course, Lexapro makes him forget to show up.
Artie Lange talks about the Accident, DUI and Jail from savebabygorilla.com
July 13th, 2009
Please answer the poll question at the bottom of this article.
“Actually, I can’t talk about it. I’ll spill my guts another day. I’m actually doing something sensible and listening to a lawyer,” said Artie Lange, talking about his arrest last Friday for Suspicion of DUI after a traffic accident.
Artie explained that he was on the way back from the pharmacy to pick up antibiotics for his sick mother when the accident occurred. No wonder the police arrested him, it sounds made up already. Of course, this is just the beginning of another story in a life that turned a book into a best seller. Artie said, “It wasn’t even an accident…no, not really.” Two 20-year-old kids were in the other car involved in the collision. They both recognized Artie and were adamant that they were not close to being hurt. Artie said they were both “cool with it”.
At the time of the accident, Artie was driving a Nissan Sentra. He explained that it was a rental car because his Mercedes was in the shop getting around $8,000 worth of repairs done to it. Back in June, Artie had parked his car over night at the airport. When he returned the following day, he noticed that his car was damaged and whoever was at fault had already left the scene. Artie’s friend and director of Beer League, Frank Sebastiano called Artie to joke about how bad it looks that he was driving a Senta.
Once the police arrived, Artie was given a Breathalyzer, in which he passed with a 0.0. He swears that he was not drinking, nor was he taking any illegal drugs. However, he did say that he had just started taking a prescription for Lexapro. He said the cops were very nice and cordial about everything.
After the arrest, Artie was taken to jail and only stayed there for about an hour and a half. Artie recounted, “Oddly enough, I am very familiar with those surroundings. It was weird being in a cell, I was like, I’ve been here before.” He thought it was his 18th time he had been arrested. While there he was given a urine test to check for narcotics. Artie said that he voluntarily took all the tests.
Artie’s court date is scheduled for this Friday. He said he is taking this all very seriously since it is a DUI and can lose his license and possibly work. Artie joked about his mug shot, “I already had a mug shot, I think I was happy with my first couple…and what I must look like in this mug shot because I hadn’t showered yet and neglected to shave the entire vacation.”
TOMS RIVER -- Howard Stern sidekick Artie Lange was charged with driving under the influence after he crashed his car into another vehicle in Toms River this afternoon.
Lange, 41, was driving a leased 2009 silver Nissan Sentra on Silver Bay Road around 1:30 p.m. when he rear-ended a car stopped to make a left turn onto Brand Road while he intended to proceed straight, said Toms River police Capt. Steven Henry.
The second car, a silver 2004 Pontiac Grand Am, was occupied by two 18-year-old males from Toms River, Henry said. Both vehicles sustained minor damage but no one was injured, he said.
At the scene, the investigating officer determined Lange appeared to be under the influence, Henry said, noting that police could not immediately determine whether there was alcohol or drugs allegedly involved.
Lange, who lives in Roseland, was arrested and charged with careless driving and driving under the influence, Henry said.
He said Lange was released at 4:45 p.m. but the Nissan would be impounded for 24 hours.
Henry did not know why Lange, who was alone in the car, was in Toms River but said he is known to have friends who live in the township.
He said Investigating Officer Brian Jarka recognized the comedian, who Henry said acted like a "complete gentleman" and was "very cooperative" with authorities.
Lange is scheduled to appear Saturday night at the Toms River branch of the Ocean County Library for a discussion and signing of his book, ``Too Fat To Fish,'' to benefit the library.
Comedian Artie Lange charged with DWI in Toms River
Bad boy radio personality Artie Lange was charged with driving under the influence of an intoxicant and with careless driving today after police responded to a minor traffic accident.
A police detective discovered Lange at the scene of a minor motor vehicle collision at Silver Bay and Brand avenues, reported at about 1:30 p.m., said Capt. Steve Henry.
Lange, 41, scheduled to appear at the Ocean County Library here Saturday night, was charged with driving under the influence by Patrolman Brian Jarka based on an assessment done at the police station, Henry said.
"There was no indication that he was under the influence of illicit drugs," Henry said.
But he was under the influence according to the psychological and physical assessment, Henry said.
A laboratory sample was taken to substantiate the assessment, Henry said.
Detective John Bajcic was driving in the Silverton section when he came up to the minor accident and stopped to investigate.
"Mr. Lange was 100 percent cooperative," Henry said.
Patrolman Gary Flynn responded to the reported crash and Lange was taken to police headquarters.
Lange is scheduled to appear at the main branch of the Ocean County Library 7 p.m. Saturday to discuss his New York Times best-seller, "Too Fat to Fish."
A former star of the television show "MADtv," Lange also has appeared in the movies "Dirty Work," 'Elf," 'Old School" and "Beer League," which he also co-wrote and produced.

We've just learned Artie Lange was busted for suspicion of DUI moments ago in New Jersey.
Law enforcement sources tell us the "Howard Stern Show" veteran was arrested about a half hour ago in Toms River after he got into a minor car accident.
