Pamela Bach, officially charged with DUI this morning, wants to talk to you about alcohol abuse. Not hers, though—her ex-husband’s. The model has issued a press release begging anyone withinear shot of David Hasselhoff to help the America’s Got Talent judge face his drinking issues, which have reportedly landed him in the hospital multiple times this year.
The despair—feeling hopeless and unable to believe that things can ever change with David’s alcoholism over the years—has affected our whole family. We want our lives to be different, but nothing we have done has brought about change. We ask David’s fans, supporters and handlers to take swift action to save this wonderful man’s life. I have always been close to my daughters to comfort and support them as well always being there for David. We will be forever hurt from this cruel disease. I am grateful for our two daughters, who have been incredibly brave, strong and protective souls.
Ironically, it’s Bach—not the Hoff—that faces mandatory jail time if found guilty of her second drunk driving charge this year. Bach was arrested for the crime over Thanskgiving weekend, ironically (there’s that word again) after spending the afternoon consoling her daughters over Hasselhoff’s latest hospital stay. TMZ’s police source claims the concerned mother was “hammered” at the scene, with a BAC of .13. You’d think she’d at least acknowledge this.
