David Hasselhoff hospitalized in L.A. again; Mindy McCready, too

Tbd-davidhasselhoff052610 It was about this time last year that David Hasselhoff was in the hospital for alcohol poisoning, one of two well-publicized trips to the clinic (the other was in November). He must think it's an annual thing, because RadarOnline says he's back in an L.A. facility because of his drinking.

The site says his 17-year-old daughter Hayley took him to the hospital because he had been on a booze-filled tear for three days prior to being checked in on Sunday. It wouldn't surprise us at all to hear poor Hayley then checked herself into a mental health retreat, especially since The Hoff is so steeped in denial he thinks he's in Egypt.

"I'm sure he'll try to deny it this time, too," Radar's source said. "And that's sad, because it's his daughter who is suffering when she has to take care of him after a bender."

At least when this episode is over, Hayley can visit mama Pamela Bach, who was recently jailed for DUI. Jack Daniel's is no doubt planning a marketing strategy centered solely on this family.

Meanwhile, singer and local addict Mindy McCready, who was on Celebrity Rehab last season fighting drug addiction, was also hospitalized in Cape Coral after an apparent overdose. That turned out to be a reaction to prescription painkillers she was taking for a broken toe, her rep told the AP. We'll have to take his word on that for now.
