The Hoff is a Cutter?
David Hasselhoff was rushed from his London hotel room to a nearby hospital after giving himself a serious cut during a "shaving" accident on Thursday. He sliced a tendon in his right arm and had to have surgery.
Publicist Judy Katz says the erstwhile Knight Rider hero was attempting a post-workout shave in the gym at London's Sanderson Hotel when he hit his head on a glass object, pieces of which cut into his arm.
While various British media reports claim the offending item was a chandelier (!), Britain's Sun tabloid pegs the culprit as a glass shelf.
"David had just finished working out in the gym at the hotel where he was staying," Katz is quoted in the paper. "He was getting ready to shave and bent down but when he stood up David hit his head on a glass shelf and it shattered.
"Some of the glass got into his hand and cut it quite badly."
The former Speedo-loving Baywatcher was taken from his temporary West End digs--he's in London working on some TV commercials--to St. Thomas Hospital to undergo an operation to repair the severed tendon.
"He's fine," Katz told the Associated Press. "He's out of the hospital and will resume filming tomorrow."
Please, I don't believe that for a second. He's a freak. You know he was having a bad day, turned on some Ani DiFranco, lit some candles, smeared on the goth black eyeliner and presumed to cut. You know all those years of ridicule from having to wear those red speedos just bled away onto the white tile. He couldn't get enough. Oh, say it ain't so! The Hoff can't be a cutter!
