Remember that adorable little girl that Hilary Clinton used to drag around with her in order to prove that she wasn’t capable of eating her young? Well, now that darling little child, Chelsea Clinton, is engaged to some "normal" dude who isn't an actor, politician, or sex tape connoisseur. If there's ever a time to look at your mother-in-law and think "Dear Lord, I hope that's not genetic" - this has to be it. [Buzz Net]

David Hasselhoff was admitted to a hospital on Friday after suffering a seizure. RadarOnline is reporting that the actor's daughter called emergency services when her father fell ill. The Hof was reportedly taken to Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center by ambulance for treatment. Hasselhoff's neighbor told the website, "I asked one of the paramedics how David was doing and he told me his eyes were rolling back into his head, he was drooling and that he'd had a seizure. This isn't the first time this has happened to him." A spokesperson for the L.A. City Fire Department confirms: "Paramedics were called to (a house) in Encino for medical aid. Paramedics arrived at approximately 11:51 am and later transported the patient a nearby hospital." Hasselhoff was released yesterday afternoon after taking part in a psychiatric evaluation by the hospital. [Radar]
