The Hasselhoff divorce settlement is just a real estate estimate away.
We wanted to make the headline 'Judge makes potentially last mistake and hassles the Hoff,' but got voted down by everyone with any modicum of sense or headline writing ability on our staff. Whatever.
So, the rhubarb is that David Hasselhoff of German music fame decided to get divorced from his wife. Her name is Pamela Bach and she's got a really funny way of estimating real estate value. She thinks their 10,000 square foot spread in Encino, California is worth $8 million. Pffft. We're in a recession, dude. And real estate is in the crapper, friend. And you live in Encino, man.
The Hoff, for his part, has a much better understanding of boots-on-the-ground property value. He estimates that the home is worth under $5 million. Then the judge, according to Business Week, pulled a valuation of $5.95 million. Yeah, Judge Robert A. Schnider may be well respected in his field but he hassled the Hoff by nearly 20%. Doesn't he know a little something about, "A shadowy flight into the dangerous world of a man who does not exist. Michael Knight, A young loner on a crusade to champion the cause of the innocent, the helpless, the powerless, in a world of criminals who operate above the law." Yo, how's that for justice, your honor? That f*ckin' car could talk, B.
At any rate, this should be about the final nail in the coffin for David Hasselhoff and Pamela Bach's divorce settlement. Their 16-year marriage ended in 2006, something about shirtless, drunk, cheeseburger eating on YouTube and 1 party not being able to handle that kind of awesome weirdness. It's a bummer when these long-term marriages come to an end it's always about the money.
