PARTY PALS? Perhaps the Hoff caught a Steve-O contact high (Photo: Getty Images) All of the speculation around David Hasselhoff's hospitalization has jogged a few people's memories of an April 5 charity event featuring a hiccuping Hoff. He was slated to give a speech but was so staggery and slurry by the time it was his turn, organizers wondered if they'd have to fortify the podium.
Guests at the UCP Wheels for Humanity annual event in Century City, California, got the impression that the Hoff was the one who was fortified, but with an open bar's worth of adult beverages, celebrity PI Paul Barresi tells Radar. Maybe he was just tired. And a witness says the Knight Rider star was shuffling around, guzzling 10 to 15 bottles of water in a two-hour stretch, telling anyone who'd listen that his ex-wife had gone through 15 attorneys and racked up $3 million in fees. The event was supposed to be a dignified affair, but Hoff also showed up with headshots and was offering to sign them for people.
