While The Hoff dried out in the psych ward on Saturday night, his ex-wife Pamela was put into handcuffs for driving while under the influence of booze. That family and the sweet nectar are fucking done professionally.
Pamela told TMZ that she was with her daughters earlier in the evening, trying to comfort them because their father is in the hospital. After she wiped their tears, she went off to dinner to booze her sorrows away. Pamela claims she only had a few drinks, but she blew a .14 on a breathalyzer test, so she must have been doing Big Gulp-sized shots.
Pamela was later released on $15,000 bail. This is her second DUI in one year, which means she’ll probably have to spend some time in a jail cell.
After her arrest, Pamela told TMZ, “I am remorseful and mortified. I am going through a really difficult time between David being in the hospital and dealing with the divorce.”
If you want to booze through your problems, then at least do it right. Do what we all do. Take the bottle, go to the bathroom, lock the door, turn on the shower, sit against the wall and bawl your eyes out while listening to Carly Simon’s Greatest Hits. Don’t get behind the wheel of anything with a motor.
And somewhere in a Vh1 board room, Dr. Drew is pitching Celebrity Rehab: Family Edition.
