Pat O’Brien, the disgraced ex-anchor of “The Insider,” is returning from his fall from grace. The former CBS sportscaster and “Access Hollywood” co-host will combine the lessons learned from his years in TV and his struggle with alcoholism in an upcoming tell-all with biographer Andrew Morton.
He’ll also address, albeit briefly, his divorce in 2004 from wife Linda, and “my unfortunate scandal.”
In 2005, when O’Brien was at “The Insider,” he left slurred voicemails, leaked to the Internet, asking a woman to join him for drugs and sex. In one, he suggested a threesome with his girlfriend, Betsy, whom he subsequently married.
