Pamela Bach


Born: 16 October 1963
Birthplace: Tulsa, Oklahoma
Best known as: Actress and ex-wife of David Hasselhoff

Name at birth: Pamela Weissenbach

Actress Pamela Bach is known for playing blonde beach babes and for being the ex-wife of TV star David Hasselhoff. She began working as a model and actress in the early 1980s and made guest appearances on TV shows such as T.J. Hooker (1982-86, starring William Shatner) and Hasselhoff's Knight Rider (1982-86). A semi-regular character in Baywatch (1991-2000), Bach joined Pam Anderson, Carmen Electra and Gena Nolin as co-stars to Hasselhoff, and in 1989 Bach and Hasselhoff got married. Their bitter divorce in 2007 included a custody battle for the couples' two teenage daughters and gave the tabloids material for months. Bach said Hasselhoff was a philandering drunk; he said she was an overly suspicious cocaine abuser. In the end, Hasselhoff was awarded custody of the kids and Bach was awarded a generous alimony settlement. Her other credits include the TV series Sirens (1995-95) and the feature film Castle Rock (2000).

Extra credit: Until her divorce, Bach used the name Bach-Hasselhoff... She is no relation to Catherine Bach, who played Daisy Duke on the TV show The Dukes of Hazzard.
