Steve-O is The Voice of Reason?

June 21st, 2011 // 49 Comments

As the world wraps its head around Jackass star Ryan Dunn wrapping his Porsche around a tree, killing himself and passenger Zachary Hartwell, who we now know was a former Navy SEAL and Iraq war vet, Steve-O, who everyone just assumed and quietly hoped would be the first “Jackass” to die, has approached the situation with surprising poise and grace. While promoting his new book, he responds to a question about Dunn by frankly talking about Johnny Knoxville getting him into rehab and cleaning up his life before he, too, spiraled out of control. I’m in a parallel universe, aren’t I? Answer me, talking dog! Popeater reports:

“Johnny Knoxville and a bunch of our ‘Jackass’ crew staged an intervention and they forcibly locked me up in a psychiatric ward,” Steve O told me. “When I got to the hospital I was so belligerent that they changed my status to 2 weeks. So the 3 days went to 2 weeks and with that kind of time on my hands in a psych ward I eventually came to the conclusion that I really needed to make a change.”

Look, I don’t want to get any further into this Ryan Dunn incident than I did this morning, so let’s stick to some lighter fare and enjoy these anecdotes about Steve-O snorting coke with Lindsay Lohan and solving racism with Mike Tyson, also while snorting coke:

Lindsay Lohan:
“I’ve done a lot of drugs with Lindsay (Lohan), but everybody knows that. Lindsay was over at my house one time and she was in my bathroom probably selfishly not sharing drugs,” Steve O revealed. “But while she was in there, I pulled out my camera and I got this crazy footage. And some time passed and later I go in my bathroom and I find that she left her wallet, so I sent her this text and I said Lindsay, you left your wallet in my bathroom. This was when she was in rehab and she told me to bring it to her. So I meet her in the driveway of this Wonderland Rehab that she’s in and I make her sign a release form of the footage that I have.”

Mike Tyson:
“[Me and] Mike Tyson locked ourselves in the bathroom in this big mansion … so here I am with Mike Tyson locked in this bathroom in this big mansion just doing piles of cocaine and I looked at him and said ‘you know Mike, I’m not a racist guy, but I would like to say I consider myself a nigger. And we had a big discussion over this pile of cocaine. My point was that if we could take the color out of this word then we would really diffuse it as a weapon. Mike Tyson said the definition of that word is the people who use it and I thought that was very insightful.”

“Afterward, he sent me through a brick wall with one punch then made me promise never to do drugs with Lindsay Lohan again. He kept yelling, ‘That bitch scares me, Steve-O, and our talks make me feel like a pigeon up in the air.’ I also thought that was very insightful.”

    ‘professional idiot’…? yes, okay. however, i’d still say he was my favorite. (third biatches!)

    This is how all these guys lived. When did people start seeing them as heroes is beyond me. It was obvious one of them was going to die one day. Ryan wasn’t even the worst of the bunch and look at him now. Read Bam’s twitter account. And lol at him staging and intervention for anyone. He’s the one that needs it the most. I feel so sorry for their families.

    All the Jackass guys are self-destructive, careless, unstable, depressive addicts that need professional help and have their licences suspended.

      “It was obvious one of them was going to die one day.”

      Please Mr. V, enlighten us with more wisdom. They’re ALL going to die one day, as you and I will too..jackass

    • S'up Bitches!

      I really haven’t found out how to see him. Well done? Extra crispy? The autopsy results haven’t been released yet.

      • George

        Extra crispy. They only identified him by his tattoos as the rest of his body was burnt to a…crisp?

      • rican

        I heard Col. Sanders was at the crash scene… he wanted to learn how Dunn perfected that “crispy on the outside, tender on the inside”.

    • Jovy

      “Well done? Extra crispy?”

      You guys are sick.

      • Brooke

        Yeah…. I know he was supposedly driving drunk, which is unbelievably frustrating and I’m so glad he didn’t hit anyone, but I can’t make these kinds of jokes at the expense of someone’s death who was, otherwise, probably not a bad guy. He just made a real shitty decision, and it’s a sad thing to know how easily this could have been prevented.

        Okay… Serious mode off now.

    • Dorian

      The intervention was FOR Steve-O and was organized by the rest of the Jackass crew and a group of his friends. Reading Comprehension 101

    • fred

      u are a fuckn wanker mate

  3. MotherFucker

    I thought Mike Tyson was vegan.

    “While promoting his new book, he responds to a question about Dunn by frankly talking above Johnny Knoxville getting him into rehab and cleaning up his life before he, too, spiraled out of control.”

    someone please translate for me. is that supposed to say “frankly talking about”??

    • catapostrophe

      No, no, cj–while promoting his book, Johnny Knoxville was right there with Steve-O, getting him into rehap and cleaning up his life, Steve-O talking above Knoxville the whole time.

  5. uh...

    “Steve-O is The Voice of The Reason?” The Reason?

    Three words: adult education classes.

  6. The Critical Crassness

    Another in the fine group of geniuses that MTV has given the world…Someone really needs to muzzle the morons in programming a t MTV networks. If it weren’t for MTV, these ass clowns would be just another bunch of out of work addicts, living in the park.

  7. Acrylique

    He said nothing about Dunn.

  9. Lemmiwinks

    In the above photo Steve-O’s expression actually resembles a jawless Roger Ebert. The universe is a weird place.

  10. It’s hard to take a guy who would staple his nutbag to his thigh serious about anything besides how to staple ones nutbag to ones thigh.

  11. AleisterCrowley

    I’m not reading something that fucking long about such a genital wart of a man.

  12. The joaker

    I don’t see where he’s the voice of reason. The fact that a guy is alive and historically a bigger fuckup than one who died seems more like chaos than reason

  13. Dana

    You’re an insensitive asshole. Get a real job and some happiness in your pathetic life. Poorly written and I failed to find the point, as you failed to be funny.

  14. Gypsy

    wow, just wow, and that dumb cunt signs the release, where the hell is that footage cause I definitely want to watch it.

  15. Phukaduck

    In Jackass #4 Steve-O is going to snort Dunn’s ashes.

  16. TomFrank

    Dunn’s passenger was a former Navy SEAL…and wasn’t Nick Hogan’s car-crash passenger victim a Marine? What is it about our nation’s young veterans that they hang out with reckless douchebags?

    • Hey Hick Fuck You

      Rich douche bags throw around a lot of money, which young vets usually don’t have. I know from experience. Who doesn’t want to ride in a fast car? They probably didn’t think they would end up dead. Having that kind of money around you can be intoxicating in itself.

    “…Steve-O, who everyone just assumed and quietly hoped would be the first “Jackass” to die…”

    Actually I was hoping BAM would be the first to die. I hope he still does.

  18. AC

    wtf?! who in the right mind would publish this dumb ass’ book? jeez

  19. randomness

    if he’s dropping big names with stories too go along i’ll buy the book!

  20. Normal Male

    You know the difference between a porcupine and a Porsche right?

    and the porcupine is still alive too.

  21. Venom

    It seems that idiot Dunn in addition to being drunk and having a passenger with him, was also doing about 130 mph at 3 am on the dark on a public road.
    What a fucking great guy.
    Normally you could say at least this idiot only killed himself, but not in this case.

  22. Whyask

    So, my question: Where’s the footage of stoned Lindsay?

    I’d love to see it…

  23. the captain

    well, someone had to be the idiot here……………

  24. rican

    Yo momma so dumb when she heard Dunn blew up in his Porsche she thought he wasn’t drinkin’ & driving.

  25. Dorian

    There was a special that aired several years ago entitled Steve-O: The Demise and Rise that chronicled his downward spiral, the intervention, and his eventual sobriety. As much of an idiot he is, it was actually a pretty well-done and eye-opening documentary. There are clips of Steve-O drugged out of his mind, convulsing and spouting gibberish. If he hadn’t had the support of the rest of the Jackass crew, he probably wouldn’t be alive today.

  26. notyourmomsvw

    Since when is cocaine in the meat group.

  27. William

    The passenger was not a SEAL, his name was checked by a few SEALs who maintain a database of all SEALS from the 1940′s-present. Although he apparently did have two brothers in the Navy.
