The Insider’s Pat O’Brien in Rehab
Apparently someone couldn’t handle another day of Danielynn coverage…
The Insider’s Pat O’Brien has once again become the focus of Hollywood news. The entertainment/tabloid show host just readmitted himself into rehab for alcohol abuse. This marks the second time in three years O’Brien has sought treatment for this problem.
Back in 2005, the 59-year-old hit rock bottom under very public circumstances. Sexually explicit voicemails he recorded while under the influence somehow found their way on to the internet. In an attempt to save face - and his job - O’Brien was forced to make a mea culpa on a primetime version of Dr. Phil.

Interestingly enough, Pat’s employers spent less time addressing the latest situation than they did the anorexic twins. Here is the short statement from The Insider’s website:
“The Insider” co-host Pat O’Brien has entered a rehabilitation facility for treatment. O’Brien and his doctors felt this is the best course for maintaining his sobriety.
O’Brien spent 40 days in treatment during his last stay; no word how long he may be out this time. Correspondent Thomas Roberts was seen filling in for the host on today’s show.
