But it's not all flashy cars and phantom nominations for the Hoff these days. Despite being loved and admired by billions, Dave's alleged drinking problem, which we all thought was cured after his little visit to the Betty Ford Clinic for the Besotted Rich and Famous, in 2002, has started to resurface again in the tabloids, just because he didn't get on a plane the other day.
The Sun reported that the Baywatch star was stopped from boarding a Los Angeles flight from Heathrow because he was staggering around, mumbling, and propping himself up on a pillar.Everyone gets a little disoriented at Heathrow; the place is a vast menagerie. It's sounds to me like the folks at British Airways and the Sun have no experience dealing with genius; the normal rules don't apply here. Besides, his publicist stated quite clearly,
He was not drunk. He was not refused boarding. It was his own decision not to get on that plane.These groundless accusations come just a month after Dave's last set of troubles which included a freak shaving accident and allegedly getting tossed from Wimbleton. As to the first incident, who hangs a chandelier in a bathroom. The Hoff is like 6'9" or something; of course he's going to injure himself. The interior decorator should obviously be flogged. And Wimbledon? Dave's publisher to the rescue again, clearing it all up beyond a doubt,
"David Hasselhoff enjoyed a day's tennis with friends at Wimbledon yesterday [Monday]," Hasselhoff spokeswoman Judy Katz said in a statement sent to ABC News. "During the afternoon, there was some confusion over accreditation as his party attempted to reach court 13. The situation was quickly resolved with the help of stewards. Reports that claim they were ejected were incorrect."Enough said, sorry Dave, thanks Judy, and now for a little easy listening,
