Artie told the crew he called into Michael Irvin’s Dallas-area radio show yesterday (at Michael’s request) to discuss his appearance on “Joe Buck Live” – and even though Michael had previously apologized for his public criticism of Artie’s appearance, Michael took the opportunity to attack him again. In a clip from the show, Artie defended himself, telling Michael: “I wanna feed my kids.” Howard and Robin wondered what Artie meant, so he joked: “I have illegitimate kids you don’t know about…I was out of my mind and trying to say, ‘I’m trying to make a living.'” Artie then laughed that HBO was rerunning his Joe Buck appearance “constantly” – but the uncensored version only airs after midnight.
