McCarty has been friends with Bach for 30 years and came to her defense after Hasselfhoff's representatives, instead of dealing with their client's severe alcohol problem, dragged Bach into the situation, claiming she was behind the supposedly exaggerated reports.  Blaming Bach and hiding the truth so angered her friend Lisa that she told the following:

"Reporting this incident where David had a .39 blood-alcohol reading might finally shock him to his senses, they feel."

Lisa, a Dallas-based interior decorator added: "Hayley (their 16-year-old daughter) and Bach love David very much and want to see him live. They have lived through too many of these frightening blood alcohol poisoning incidents to know David's life is in grave jeopardy."

"This event was major. To say he just had a drink and went to the hospital is ridiculous."

Addressing the Hasselfhoff team's bizarre public relations strategy of blaming Bach for the news reports, Lisa told  "Bach did not talk to any press about this. Any statements she was the 'leak' to and the ensuing legal threats from Hasselhoff's attorneys against her as 'the leak' are unfounded."

Lisa McCarty isn't the only one apparently fed up with the Hoff's disinformation campaign and failure to take responsibility for his actions. The Hoff was driven to the hospital by Bach after he was found unconscious by daughter Hayley. Now Bach's spokesperson, Dominic Friesen, issued this statement to

"Despite attempts by her ex-husband's lawyers to divert attention from the hospitalization of David and undermining Bach's life-saving involvement, she maintains her ongoing commitment to the health and well-being of the entire family. Differences aside, she responded bravely to the crisis and continues to request privacy during this difficult time."
