Our spies spotted POB at Gelson's market in Pacific Palisades last Saturday. He looked painfully, painfully thin with sunburned skin -- "bordering on scorched" we're told. He loaded up on at least ten cans of Pringles and a bunch of bags of M&M's. At one point he was at the deli waiting for his number to be called, when a woman recognized him and started the whole "Oh my God," thing. Pat wanted no part of it and just bailed. Guess he didn't find it "so f***in' hot."
We called "The Insider" to find out if POB is coming back. A spokesperson told TMZ, "At this time Pat O'Brien is focused on his recovery and it's inappropriate to comment on rumors about the show."
