ACTOR David Hasselhoff has been trying his hand at rowing in Henley.
The Baywatch star joined a crew from Upper Thames Rowing Club for a trip along the royal regatta course.
Sunseekers and rowers lined the bank to watch him take his first tentative strokes in an eight.
Hasselhoff was filming for a “best of British” series for the Living channel, in which he will spend time with Radio 1 DJ and “Hoff” fanatic Scott Mills, when he spotted rowers training for the Henley Royal Regatta next week.
After mooring up next to the club’s new �1 million headquarters, the 52-year-old American asked the mixed crew to teach him some techniques — and they were happy to oblige.
David talks about the King of Pop – Michael Jackson in his latest blog post on Hoffspace.
This last week was a sad one for me personally as well as the rest of the world. Not only did my dear friend Ed McMahon pass away, the undisputed King of Pop, Michael Jackson passed as well.
Michael was a great guy and the most amazing performer. He kept the world mesmerized with his dancing, fascinated by his personality, and singing along to his songs for the last thirty years. He will be sorely missed.
Here’s one of my favorite (and many of yours too probably) memories of Michael: the debut of the Moonwalk. Nobody else moves like that.
Dhiveja Sundrum gets to chat to singer Patricia Lewis and American television star David Hasselhoff in Thursday night’s episode of Top Billing, on SABC3 at 7.30pm…
The three meet at eco game lodge Thaba Ya Batswana, where Sundrum chats to the stars, over an African-inspired meal, about their history together (they were once romantically involved), the importance of their long-standing friendship and how Hasselhoff, star of America’s Got Talent and Baywatch, made contact with Lewis again after so many years.
Also discussed are Lewis’s recent health concerns and the recording of a new duet together.
“We also get to sit in on a radio interview with the old friends and watch them perform a short concert at Monte Casino,” says a Top Billing spokesperson.
When he first heard the news, David says it took him by surprise, “It just didn’t register because … he was such a man full of life. He was always, ‘don’t worry about me pal, I’m a Marine, you know us Marines are fighters, we never give up.’”
David goes on to describe Ed’s many accomplishments and gives his thoughts on why he was such an icon. Watch the video for more as the “America’s Got Talent” judge details how their personal friendship grew over the years.

The show started off with an interesting open – shots of the different ” – Got Talent”‘s from around the world. When I look back on it, it was a rather cool concept to the start of the show. At the moment, though, my film/TV side came out and I couldn’t stop thinking how low-quality the clips looked.
The start of the show was rather uneventful. Just enjoyed seeing the Hoff be the judge, and seeing his humor come out.
I actually like watching the terrible acts. I enjoy seeing the terrible acts in the beginning and finding new favorite acts that I want to see in the next rounds.
Only new thing this season that I didn’t like was the strobe light thing on the X’s. Hurts the eyes after a bit.
Favorite act? It would have to be FootworkKINGz. They were AMAZING! Not only were they right on with the music but their feet were so fast AND they were together! It was a surprise and I really like the non-singing acts, myself.
The Voices of Glory trio of kids who sang to their mother while she was in a coma for 8 months were also great. They had great voices, and blended together perfectly. Their act literally did give me chills, though. I was pulling a Sharon with the tears at the end there.
Rockin’ Rory was great. I’m such a sucker for pet acts that are actually really well done. That dog was amazing! It was so cool how the dog literally fly in the air and did tricks so quickly with those frisbies. It was a well polished act and I can’t wait to see what they do in vegas.
Last but not least, the Hasselhoff song! That had me rolling. The whole beginning I thought it was Pamela Anderson he was going to sing about. Especially that part where he sang that he bought his speedos off of ebay, but knew he couldn’t fill them out like David. I’m glad Piers put him through! I was hoping. He can actually sing, which made it a bit sweeter. What is in store for us in Vegas? Another Hoff song? Maybe we won’t even get to see him.
I feel sorry for the Impressionist guy. He was so terrible.. he really had the passion and believed he was good at it. I wanted him to be good. That was probably the single act that I really just felt bad for the guy. You can see the pain and sadness in his eyes when the judges told him no.
The one act I felt that shouldn’t have made it to Vegas was the Love triangle couple. The act looked amateurish, and just wasn’t that interesting at all.
