Looks like “The Insider” has been spending a little too much time inside the liquor store. Things are getting really bad for Pat O’Brien, host of the celebrity gossip news show The Insider. Dirty Pat O’Brien voicemails showing off his wild, drunken behavior have been leaked all over the Internet.
Pat O’Brien Checks Himself Into Rehab
On March 20, 2005, Pat O’Brien issued this puzzling statement to the Associated Press and checked himself into rehab:
“I have had a problem with alcohol. I have decided to take action by checking myself into an intensive recovery program. Overcoming this problem is a top priority in my life, and I am excited to return to work as soon as I am able.”
Everyone was wondering what prompted this statement until this morning when a string of dirty Pat O’Brien voicemail messages where he expresses his desires for cocaine, hookers, and wild sex was leaked all over the Internet.

Lessons We Can Learn From The Pat O’Brien Voicemails
After carefully listening to the voicemail messages and researching this story, we’ve created a list of life lessons that everyone can learn from Pat O’Brien’s situation.
Lesson #1: If you write an email while intoxicated, especially a work email, sober up before hitting the send button.
Before leaving Access Hollywood in summer 2004, O’Brien sent out a drunken email critiquing all of his co-hosts including Nancy O’Dell. The email was promptly followed by a public apology and an admission of a drinking problem.
Lesson #2: If you are “horny” and doing illegal drugs, don’t call everyone in your address book and tell them about it. Especially if you are a celebrity!
After leaving Access Hollywood, O’Brien got his own entertainment gossip show called The Insider. At first, it looked like O’Brien got his drinking under control. However, he decided to get drunk, do a few lines of cocaine, and leave a string of dirty voicemail messages all over the place. So apparently not.
Lesson #3: Never leave voicemail evidence that can be recorded and leaked all over the Internet.

NERD NOTE: After the Pat O’Brien Voicemails Scandal of 2005, O’Brien entered rehab and returned to his show The Insider shortly after. Then three years later, in February 2008, O’Brien reentered rehab. Donny Osmond and Lara Spencer helped fill in on The Insider during his absence. But after Osmond turned down a permanent hosting role, O’Brien was brought back to the show in March 2008 in a lesser role. However, just a few months later, on September 18, 2008, O’Brien was permanently fired from The Insider after he wrote a disturbing e-mail insulting Lara Spencer.
