Joey Buttafuoco called in to announce he was going back to the Los Angeles County Jail for a violation of his parole. After Joey mentioned his parole violation involved his possession of a shotgun and some shells that were given to him by his mother, Howard commented that, if he were Joey, he would’ve done everything in his power to avoid more jail time, but Joey explained that he would have…had he known the gun and the shells were still in his house.

Joey added he was sentenced to another year behind bars, and that he just wanted to serve his time so he could get back to being with his family. Joey also reported he had an intestinal disease that caused him to lose 51 pounds over the past year, and that he also battled testicular cancer earlier this year as well. To make matters worse, Joey noted he was starting to experience a problem with his prostate to boot, but that he wasn’t sure if it was cancer or not.
