In a rare instance of lucidity, David Hasselhoff acknowledged he'd been signed on to appear on ABC's Dancing with the Stars, set to air on September 20.
"All I know is, I was having a few drinks one night at home, and when I woke up, I was doing the Fox Trot with some woman dressed in incredibly tight clothing. At first, I figured it was another of those crazy dreams I always have, but when I fell and hurt my ankle, I realized, this was real life."
While Hasselhoff was being checked by the medical team on set at DWTS, he was told that he had indeed made it onto the show. "Man," said Hassselhoff, "had I been aware of what my agent was signing me up for, I would have put up a fight. I mean, yeah, the money's probably good, isn't it?" he turned to ask the Producer, who gave him a thumb's up. "So yeah, the money's good, so I'll probably try and hang in there, but I gotta tell ya, sometimes I can't even walk straight. Now they want me to cha-cha? This could be dangerous. Hell, even a waltz could be deadly."
Yes, dangerous but hilarious is what the producers of the show are counting on. Meanwhile, Sarah Palin is said to be not too pleased that her daughter, Bristol, will be exposed to Hasselhoff and other celebrity dancers whose morals don't quite match up to those of the Palins. However, just like Hasselhoff, she's willing to overlook those tiny little details if it means her daughter can further her show business career and keep the Palin name in the news at least until 2012.
