David Hasselhoff is doing fine. But, as usual, the media's a bit on the sick side.

According to his attorney, the Hoff's trip to the hospital yesterday was a minor incident and was blown out of proportion after the fact.

"He is totally normal," lawyer Mel Goldsman told E! News Monday. "He was released almost immediately after he arrived at the hospital."

The America's Got Talent judge felt dizzy at his home Sunday afternoon and was taken to a nearby hospital by ambulance, prompting speculation that he had been nipping at the cooking sherry.

In fact, he was good to go after about an hour, Goldsman said. A rep for Hasselhoff explained that the actor was experiencing a side effect from taking the antinausea drug Antivert and Antabuse, which is used by recovering alcoholics to create acute sensitivity to booze.

"I'm not sure if it was the combination," Goldsman said, "but I do know it was related to one of the drugs he was taking."

E! News also caught up with Hasselhoff as he pulled into his Encino home this afternoon.

Our camera was there as his driver, spotting the paparazzi, drove around the block first but then ultimately sped on through the gates, leaving the shutterbugs in the dust.

But the Hoff looked fine, didn't he?


While Hasselhoff was getting some R&R yesterday, his fellow TV stars were walking the red carpet at the 61st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. Check out our wall-to-wall coverage right here.
