Howard Stern, Artie LangeHoward Stern vowed on Monday to refrain from commenting on his hospitalized sidekick Artie Lange, but not before saying he "wanted to vomit" after reading rumors about the comedian's fragile health.

A spokesman confirmed over the weekend that Lange, 42, is in a New Jersey hospital, but no other information has been released.

On his Sirius Satellite Radio show Monday, Stern vowed to keep quiet on Lange's condition, but didn't shy away from showering his buddy with praise (via PhillyBurbs.com).
