Pat O'Brien Out of Rehab - Into Junk Food

3/11/2008 5:37 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Pat O'Brien is out of rehab, but execs at "The Insider" are mum about his future.

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."

I HAVE NO SYMPATHY FOR HIM WHAT SOEVER ,, HE IS WHAT HE HAS MADE HIMSELF PATHETIC ! IF THAT WERE ANYONE ELSE COMMITING A CRIME WHICH IS WHAT HE DID , SEXUAL HARRASSMENT AT THE VERY LEAST. WE WOULD HAVE BEEN IN JAIL ,,BUT HE "GETS" TO GO TO REHAB ?~! ITS NOT THE ALCOHOL THAT MAKES HIM DO IT ,, ITS HIM THAT MAKES HIM DO IT ,, HE SEEMS SO CONDESENDING WHEN HES ON THE SHOW TALKING ABOUT ALL THE SCANDAL WHEN ITS ABOUT SOMEBODY ELSE ,, THEN HE WANTS , EXPECTS PEOPLE TO NOTTALK TO HIM AND GIVE HIM HIS PRIVATE TIME .. OH PLEEEEEEZ HE DOES LIVE IN HOLLYWEIRD AND PRESIDENT OF THAT WHOLE F'D UP CLUB..IT AMAZES ME WHEN BRITTNEY WAS IN REHAB ,,OR LOHAN,, THEN REPORTED ON IT EVERYDAY ..REPORTERS FOR THE SHOW ALWAYS ON HER TRAIL,, HAVNT HEARD ANYTHING OTHER THAN ITS A PRIVATE MATTER AND THEY WISH HIM WELL IN HIS RECOVERY ,, I THINK THATS TOO BIAS FOR ME , ITS ABOUT SCANDAL THE SHOW IS BASED ON IT , SO LETS HEAR IT , LETS SEE A LITTLE ONE ON ONE UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL SIDE .. I THINK THE VIEWERS DESERVE IT ,,

Sorry about his "disease" and may God bless, but when it's your time to give it up, give it up with all the grace you have, and by all means - DO NOT go out in public looking like that!! And by the way, some of our group here needs to proofread their comments before they click the add comments icon

wow! i am impressed that "the insider" even knows what the word "inappripriate" means. now, they dont usually mind being inappropriate about all the intrusions they show on that rag, so i wonder why they suddenly felt the need to be appropriate now? oh yeah! its because its their a** they're trying to protect! i think the words "shady and deceptive" seem a more appropriate description to their evasiveness regarding mr. o' brien...

Pat OB is a great host and I really think he should go back to his spot on the Insider! He has to work!!! But I think ultimately the decision should be his with alot of consideration and cooperation from his peers and superiors.

I think he is a very good host and makes it look really easy. Insider will never be the same again if he does not return. Donny is okay, but Donny Osmond is Donny Osmond. Sweet, baby-faced pretty boy who has alot going for him and can leave Insider to the guy who does it best!

let him go. He's too damn old to appeal to the younger set anyway. It was the show and the parties that got him the way he is now. Stay home and sober up then get a paper route or something

Reading, it is obvious that some people like Pat OB and some don't. That is the way it will always be... but for heaven's sake, just be kind. Just be compassionate to someone who needs it and who has never done anything to us.

Code words, if they are concerned that means you're fired. Pat was on his last leg and I believe he's history.
