Just in time for ratings sweeps, it’s a night of tell-all tabloid news specials sure to titillate.
First, fresh out of rehab Pat O’Brien sits down for a prime-time mea culpa with Dr. Phil. Speaking of the voicemail messages which made the rounds in the internet prior to his rehab sting, such as: “I want to f***kin’ go crazy with you. I want to talk dirty to you…get another woman up…Let’s get crazy, get some coke.“
O’Brien says that is not him – it’s the booze talking, but he admits it is his voice on the recordings. Clearly the booze has a way with words.
Later Dr. Phil asks, “What was going through your mind that said this is OK, I’m going to do this not once, not twice, but 7 or 8 times?” Of course the answer is that the thought of booze, drugs, and menage a trois’ were what what was going through his mind, though he instead gives some mumbo-jumbo 12-step inspired answer.
Even though he’s only days removed from rehab, O’Brien is slipstreaming right back into the celebrity lifestyle, though presumably doing so now without the monkey of a 40-year alcohol habit on his back. According to Defamer, O’Brien managed to make to the Coachella Music Festival. A Defamer reader reports,
“Pat O’Brien was at Coachella, seemingly a day out of rehab. He came over and talked to me and my friends about how ‘fucking pissed’ he was that he missed the Stereophonics. He even posed for a pic with me.”
Over on ABC, the other tabloid special features former American Idol contestant Corey Clark alleging that he had an affair with Idol judge Paula Abdul. Here’s how Clark says it got started”
Clark alleges his first private phone call with Abdul came after an associate of hers slipped Clark a piece of paper with her number.
“So she was like, ‘You got to have better song choices, and I want to help you do that. I want to look out after you like, like, I’m your mom,'” Clark told “PrimeTime Live,” according to an excerpt released by ABC News.
“And then she was like, “Well, more like your sister.” And I was like, ‘OK, cool, cool’ … And then she was like, “Well, maybe more like your special friend,'” Clark told the news show.As Pat O’Brien would say, “That’s so f***in’ hot!“
