September 19, 2008 --
PAT O'Brien is out of a job. The former host of "The Insider," who was demoted to a correspondent after several stints in rehab, infuriated his bosses when he sent out an ill-advised e-mail Monday to his "Insider" and "Entertainment Tonight" co-workers, which boasted of his own popularity. The e-mail also said one of "Insider" host Lara Spencer's segments on the show makes viewers "want to vomit." Sources told us O'Brien was fired yesterday, and a rep for "The Insider" confirmed he's out.
