Pat O’Brien has been fired from The Insider. After being demoted to a correspondent and two stints in rehab (failed stints), he’s just been too crazy and cocky for the higher ups. He apparently sent co-workers an email while he was in Iowa interviewing Joe Biden saying that Lara Spencer’s segment makes him “want to vomit,” because he thought that The Insider should cover more relevant issues like gas, and the cost of food, etc…I don’t disagree with him…but does he remember he works for a tabloid TV show and not CNN? The Insider seems to think that Pat wrote that email out of jealousy because Lara has his old job.
Wow, don’t bite the hand that feeds you Pat. You were being paid by the show, not the other way around. I’m sure he’ll soon pop up on another show or have his own from this. Bad publicity is good publicity sometimes. He’s an entertainment gagsta…a stupid one.
