As legitimate actors with careers attended the Emmy Awards, David Hasselhoff kept it real by sitting at home chugging vodka like it was the goddamn antidote. Unfortunately for him, it ended up being the antidote to not going to the hospital with alcohol poisoning for the 35th time. RadarOnline reports:
Hasselhoff was home with his 17-year-old daughter Hayley and his male assistant and was on a bender. The Hoff had been drinking for more than a day, a source told RadarOnline.com. He recently wrapped taping for America’s Got Talent and shortly after began boozing heavily on vodka.
When he appeared to be in physical danger 911 was called and he was transported to the hospital. His daughter went with him and was crying heavily.
And RadarOnline.com has also learned exclusively that the actor has been hospitalized with alcohol poisoning more than five times during the past few years.
Hoff has consistently been in denial about his severe alcoholism say people close to him. He denied that it was alcohol poisoning behind his hospitalization earlier this year but the details of his story changed as more people confirmed it.
Do you want to know my favorite part of this story? The fact that I used a picture of David Hasselhoff aggressively holding a hammer. It’s like he saying to alcohol poisoning “Hey, you. Booze. Let’s dance.” And by dance I of course mean sit around the house without a shirt on telling people you wrote a book. “No, really. Just listen to me. Listen. I wrote it all down. In my mind.”
UPDATE: TMZ reports The Hoff’s blaming it on an ear infection. Except when asked to touch his ear he fell down a flight of stairs then ordered a pizza. True story.
