David Hasseloff Cheered (!!!) in Las Vegas
David Hasseloff Making a Comeback?
Could the aging former “Baywatch,” “Knight Rider,” and “America’s Got Talent,” television demigod be trying to reclaim his former glory?
Trashing those late night sordid drinking and hamburger affairs, “The Hoff,” appears for now, to be sloshing onward and upward.
His namesake Knight Rider Festival will be hosted in Las Vegas this weekend. And, different than the first festival last year, this one will be graced by his presence. Hasselhoff plans to be at the festival on Fremont Street Experience on the First Street Stage tonight at 5 p.m., ushered in by Elvis impersonator Paul Casey, who created the Las Vegas event, dressed up as The Lone Ranger and riding up the street on a white horse signifying, Casey says, the original “Knight Rider” television show’s intent of being a modern-day version of the “The Lone Ranger.”
Following Casey and his white knight horse will be a parade of 20 K.I.T.T. cars from the series. The first one will be driven by Jack Gill, the main stunt driver for the series.
Listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as “The Most Watched TV Star in the World,” Hasselhoff, who has been on television for more than 30 years, will be joined in the Las Vegas event by television show creator Glen Larson and actors Ann Turkel and Justin Bruening.
Allegedly, there will also be a drive-through wedding chapel with K.I.T.T. serving as best man.
Then it’s off to London for Hasseloff, where the WWE is having him guest host WWE Monday Night RAW on April 12.
And while that’s going on, the fun-loving-in-excess actor, who has also morphed into an internationally renowned singer receiving incredible kudos for his singing skills, especially in Europe, will be on a concert tour in Europe.
Hasselhoff is also on the road of making other endeavors a success too.
The folks at Abercrombie & Fitch hope are banking on the brand and image appeal of The Hoff to change their fortunes in the United States. So far, the traveling salvation show is working- his image is increasing sales revenue by 5 percent, while many of their industry competitors are down by 5 percent.
A&E also sees the shining rebounding light of Hasseloff, hiring him for a 10-epsisode deal for a new reality show with his two daughters. The docu-series, currently unnamed, slotted to air later this year, will take a behind-the-scenes look into the life of The Hoff focusing on his multiple entertainment and business endeavors, as well as his most important role as a single dad trying to help his teenage daughters’ break into the recording industry.

Pamela Anderson Models Her Own Fashion Line
Pamela Anderson, a frequent partier in Las Vegas, is now reportedly in New Zealand, debuting her fashion line A Muse. Anderson showed up at a press conference, along with collaborator Richie Rich, wearing almost nothing but a printed pink scarf as a dress.
As she turned around exposing her back tattoos and butt crack, she was wearing just a thong.
Pammy is apparently desperate and willing to try almost anything, as she reportedly is drowning in financial debt and needs a lifesaver.
The former Baywatch star, 42, allegedly owes $1.1 million to various construction companies for remodeling work on her Malibu home as well as back state taxes, L.A. County records show.

Brande Roderick Walks Tao Nightclub Red Carpet in Las Vegas
If you missed Brande Roderick showing up in stylish fashion on the red carpet on Friday evening to host the Tao nightclub in the Venetian Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, we’ve included a fresh Vegas Backstage Access photo for your viewing pleasure. And we asked again if she was going to be a winner on “Celebrity Apprentice” and again we got the cold shoulder. But…a trivia question of the day: Who was the first “Baywatch” TV cast member that was also a PPOTY (Playboy Playmate of the Year)? Erika Eleniak? Must be Pamela Anderson! Nope – the first Baywatch babe to be the Playboy Playmate of the Year was Brande Roderick. And now she’s the second PPOTY to participate in the Donald Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice” TV show. Brande has already done better than season one apprentice Tiffany Fallon, who was ‘fired’ in episode one.
