This article just cracked me up. It seems David "The Hoff" Hasselhoff fancies Lucy (get in line buddy..there is a long list of men and women who fancy Lucy) The REALLY funny story not mentioned here is that Xena Warrior Princess obliterated Baywatch in the rathings :) Too bad these journalists didn't dig deep into the ratings to find that gem.
The following is from the kiwi press: Sunday News
Baywatch cult hero David Hasselhoff has told how he once tried to chat up Kiwi actress Lucy Lawless, sexy star of Xena: Warrior Princess.
"I chased Lucy Lawless one night and she said, `I waited tables on you 10 years ago'. I laughed my butt off, because now she's a big star," Hasselhof told Sunday News.
"I knew she was from New Zealand and God, she looks pretty in person."
Lawless was a teenage part-time waitress in Parnell, Auckland, when Hasselhoff – then the star of the hit TV show Knight Rider – visited New Zealand in 1986.
When the pair next met, in America during the mid-90s, he was headlining Baywatch – the most-watched TV show in the world, with over 1.1 billion viewers.
She was named one of the "50 Most Beautiful People in the World" by People magazine after steaming up the small screen as Xena. Hasselhoff failed to win Lawless' heart, but, even at 58, he still had an eye for the ladies earlier this week on his latest visit here to promote a new ice cream.
"One girl was sitting next to me and I asked her what she did.
"She was a singer, so I thought, `Maybe we should do a duet together, about an old guy and you being too young for me' – I could pull that off," he laughed.
"But she was beautiful and if I never see her again, I'll always remember how real she was."
