[ # ] Was The Hoff on sleepings pills or drunk during his UK TV interview?
September 30th, 2006 under David Hasselhoff/Baywatch

David Hasselhoff was accused of being drunk today during a live television breakfast show. Viewers complained to GMTV claiming the Baywatch star slurred his words and seemed half-asleep on its show Entertainment Today. Appearing between 8.40am and 9.10am, the actor sat alongside Jenni Falconer and seemed to slur his words while making suggestive comments to the presenter. The 54-year-old — nicknamed the Hoff — looked confused and seemed to struggle to keep his eyes open. Hasselhoff, who is currently in the UK promoting his film Click, his single Jump In My Car, and his book Making Waves, appeared to find it difficult to pronounce the name of his Click co-star Adam Sandler, calling him "Adam Sanglier". During the live appearance, he also managed to get a link wrong as well as giving a stuttering performance miming his new single. A GMTV insider claimed they had received as many as 250 calls from viewers. The source said: "Those calls won’t all be registered as complaints because some of them won’t have actually complained — they might have just passed a comment on how Hasselhoff looked." A spokesman for GMTV said: "He was extremely tired because of his massive promotional tour which has been going on for three weeks now. "But he did everything we wanted him to do. His behaviour might not have been ‘dead-on’ but it was first thing in the morning. We do not believe he was drunk. There was no smell of alcohol." Hasselhoff has already been at the centre of controversy this year over alleged drink-related incidents. And in July he was banned from a British Airways flight after allegedly turning up drunk. He told staff he was upset about his divorce from his wife, Pamela, after 16 years. His publicist Max Clifford said: "David has so many projects on at the moment and has been busy for the last few weeks promoting his book, film and record in Europe and has also been travelling back to the US in order to see his children. "David took a sleeping pill at 7pm last night and another at 4am this morning and he was up at 6am to appear on GMTV. "It’s no surprise, with his schedule and the extensive travelling involved, that he is absolutely exhausted, as anyone would be."

Why doesn’t he just admit he has a problem already?
