As seasons one and two of Baywatch hit stores, David Hasselhoff continues to take himself too seriously.

Fortunately, Pamela Anderson does not. The former faux lifeguard recently sat down with TV Guide for an interview.

Pam Picture

TVGuide.com: Did I catch you in between weddings to Kid Rock?
Pamela Anderson: Yeah, actually, you did!

TVGuide.com: So, will some people's preconceptions of Baywatch be proven wrong when they pop in these DVDs?
Anderson: Proven wrong? Probably not. [Laughs]

TVGuide.com: What do you find yourself fixating on when watching these early episodes?
Anderson: I just love watching it because I know I had the best time of my life shooting it, being there with my dog and my family. It was the best job in Hollywood, so every time I see bits and pieces of it I'm reminded of that. Plus, I live on the beach, so I still walk past "my tower," Tower 14, every day. I think it will be kind of fun now to watch the show with my kids, who are now 8 and 10, and still don't know what Baywatch was.

There's a whole generation of kids who haven't seen it, so I think it's going to be really popular on DVD. It's such a simple, sweet show that's harmless and funny.

TVGuide.com: What's the most far-out story line you remember playing?
Anderson: Oh, god... I remember a giant electric eel or squid attacking somebody.... Every story was pretty far-fetched, but in a silly way.

TVGuide.com: What do you know about the "lost episodes" included on the Season 1 DVD set?
Anderson: When they first started shooting Baywatch, they didn't realize what they had, and they sold 10 percent of it to, like, 50 different people, so nobody who created the show ended up with anything. They lost merchandise rights and they sold off rights to all these different people, and different people owned different episodes, so it was quite a hunt to get all this stuff back together.

And then the company that bought it all came to me and said, "We can't imagine doing this [DVD compilation] without having you connected to it," so I thought, "Great, I'm finally going to make some money off this show!" [Laughs] I don't think I'm ever really driven by money, but in this case it's nice to have some ownership in the DVDs.

TVGuide.com: Switching topics: Steven Tyler recently went public with his own hepatitis C diagnosis. Have you had a chance to give him any advice?
Anderson: We actually talked about it a long time ago, before he made it public. He had been really supportive of me, and he was telling me what he was going to go through to kick it, and he did, and it was tough on him. My version of hepatitis C is very manageable and is easy to cure, but my doctors advised me to just wait it out because I'm so healthy and I haven't seen the bad effects yet. I go once a year to get a checkup, but my doctors tell me I'm fine.

TVGuide.com: Aren't you "pregnant," by some accounts?
Anderson: [Laughs] No! We've got three kids now. [Kid Rock has] to make another hit album before we make more kids!

TVGuide.com: Now, are they doing a big-screen Baywatch or not?
Anderson: I've heard they are, yeah, and they've contacted me about it.... I don't know, I don't like remakes of TV shows. The show is good as a TV show, that's what made it so fun. It's hard to remake it.

TVGuide.com: Isn't there talk that they'll get some new chickadee to play C.J.? Like, Jessica Simpson?
Anderson: I heard that rumor, too, but I think it's just a rumor.

TVGuide.com: So where are we going to see you next?
Anderson: Have you heard about the Borat movie? [Laughs] You have to check that out....

TVGuide.com: Are you in there somewhere?
Anderson: You'll have to see! But yeah, I'm doing some films right now and I'm running around with my kids, trying to get things together for my family. We're in transition right now. [Laughs]

Not that this is a bad thing. It's a very good thing, in fact. But we wouldn't be surprised if a few fans weren't hoping for another car giveaway from Oprah Winfrey instead.

The talk show host has presented her audience with new vehicles, paid down their debts and granted wishes on her Wildest Dreams Tour. This latest act, however, was deemed the goddess' "favorite giveaway ever."

Goodbye, Oprah Winfrey

On Monday's show, Winfrey gave more than 300 audience members $1,000 debit cards to donate to charity, the Associated Press reports. She called her present the "gift of giving back" and we can only imagine how proud Brangelina must be of such an action.

"I can honestly say that every gift I've ever given has brought at least as much happiness to me as it has to the person I've given it to," said Oprah. "That's the feeling I want to pass on to you."

Fortunately, Heather Mills was not in the audience to steal all the cards and accuse Winfrey of assault.

People can give the entire sum to one person (no relatives or Hilton sisters allowed) or they can divide it among various charitable causes. Audience members also received a DVD recorder to tape their stories for a future show.

"You're going to open your hearts, you're going to be really creative, and you're going to spend it all at once on one stranger or spend a dollar on every person," Winfrey said. "Imagine the love and kindness you can spread with $1,000."

Or all the nude Marcia Cross pictures you could buy.

Lance Armstrong has blown by cancer, Tour de France cyclists and, soon, New York City Marathon runners.

But it looks as though Ivanka Trump has now left the champion in her wake.

Pregnant Ivanka Trump

Following rumors that this random pair were going on dates, the daughter of Donald Trump has reportedly hooked up with an even more unexpected celebrity: Topher Grace.

According to Page Six, the former star of That '70s Show and soon-to-be co-star of Spider-Man 3 was spotted with Ivanka at her 25th birthday party in Las Vegas. The duo parties provately at Pure night club, with the curtains closed around their table for a full half-hour.

Before that, they were seen canoodling on the balcony during dinner with friends that included Wilmer Valderrama. There's no word on whether or not fellow pal, Ashston Kutcher, was in town.

But he may have been too busy scolding step-daugther, Rumer Willis.

Shana Moakler may have thought she got the last word on Paris Hilton, but leave it to Hugh Hefner to bring the two ladies together again.

The two blondes may not have made nice at the Playboy Halloween bash over the weekend, but they also didn't violently murder one another. And that says a lot. Especially when Travis Barker was also in attendence.

Paris in Hawaii

Jeremy Piven, Three-6 Mafia, Nicky Hilton and Pauly Shore were also on hand to enjoy the mansion scenery; i.e. naked women. There was also a fully clothed Owen Wilson sighting, as the actor was spotted getting cozy with a mystery blonde dressed as an angel.

Most of the costumes skewed towards the skanky, of course, but the winner of tasteless costume of the night went to a man: Bill Maher. The comedian arrived as the late Steve Irwin, with a stingray barb through his chest.

Come on, Bill. Would society, or at least Karrine Steffans, really approve?

In the end, the party ended on an awful sour note: with Hilton dancing like a fool to one of her own songs. As partygoers looked on, the heiress, who donned her own version of the classic Playboy Bunny outfit, writhed to her pathetic non-smash, "Stars Are Blind."

Every time we look at a Paris Hilton picture, we wish we were, too. Or this Travis Barker picture. Good God man, what the hell is wrong with you.

There was some naked Anne Hathaway in Brokeback Mountain. And some more in Havoc.

Still, the beautiful actress has found it necessary to make sure NO ONE out there mistakes her for nude-o-phobe, Owen Wilson.

Anne Hathaway in Interview

So pay attention, fans. Hathaway is just fine losing her clothes, as the actress recently was quoted as emphasizing:

I grew up studying classic painters. They certainly didn't shy away from nudes. I don't find anything morally reprehensible about it. I think it is different to pose in a pair of hotpants on the cover of Stuff magazine. That's something I'm just not interested in doing.

Can someone please pass that line of reasoning along to Jessica Alba? And George Clooney. We know how much the women love him.

David Hasselhoff has pulled out of co-presenting the MTV European Video Music Awards after claiming the show's producers had no taste.

This from a man who used to talk to his car.

The 1980s style icon was due to present the awards with Justin Timberlake on November 2nd in Copenhagen, but the Sunday Mirror claims the Hoff balked once he saw the night's script.

Apparently the 54-year-old, who recently climbed the UK chart with "Jump in My Car," was not prepared to deliver such set-pieces as ripping off his co-presenters shirt and remarking "you need to get some more chest hairs like me."

Another planned scene involved the girlfriend of Cameroz Diaz wondering where Hasselhoff had gone, only for the camera to pan out to a Jacuzzi offstage where the Baywatch actor was entertaining some ladies with champagne.

"It was all tongue-in-cheek stuff, but Mr Hasselhoff didn't find it funny," an MTV source said. "He told them he's a massive star in Europe - and doesn't want to be made fun of. MTV had spent a month on the scripts and are gutted the Hoff pulled out at the last minute."

So are we. But we can at least take solace in these Kristin Cavallari pictures.

As we've discussed in the past, it's not easy to see the private parts of Kate Hudson.

One may need a magnifying glass to admire the boobs and tush of this tiny actress.

K. Hudson Pic

Maybe that's what she has in common with rumored boyfriend, Owen Wilson. As the picture below depicts, it's also difficult to catch this actor with his pants (or bathing suit) off.

While filming a scene for his next movie, Drillbit Taylor, in Malibu on Friday, Wilson required the use of a butt double. We wonder what the funny man had to hide.

We also wish Anna Nicole Smith was this shy with her body.

Special thanks to one of our readers, who we shall call Kerri, for this suggestion. Our celebrity look-alikes aren't always on the mark -- sometimes, such as in the case of Tom Cruise and Kim Jong Il, they're really more for laughs than any sort of serious comparison. But we think this pair of look-alikes is particularly solid. At least as far as six-month old celebrity babies and Icelandic pop singers go.

Suri Pic

Yes, that is little Suri Cruise (left), and the amazing Bjork. Despite turning 41 later this year, we think Bjork is a dead-ringer for the spawn of TomKat.

Despite recent difficulties, Whitney Houston isn't the only one doing great.

Cheery anchor Katie Couric is maintaining her upbeat personality in the face of decreased rating for the CBS Evening News.

Couric Pic

Claiming that despite her third-place ranking among the major three network newscasts, she's "feeling great" and "having a great time," Couric told USA Today:

"We kind of ignore people who are observing everything we do and praising, criticizing or analyzing it, and we're just doing what we want."

Sounds like a typial night out for Lindsay Lohan and Rumer Willis to us.

Couric, who delivered a ratings wallop with her Sept. 5 debut, says that being in first place "was never an expectation by anyone at CBS News, and it shouldn't have been an expectation by anyone in the outside world. Viewing habits are slow to turn around."

Couric also noted that "Rome wasn't built in a day and neither will The CBS Evening News." Somewhere, though, Tara Reid pointed out her boobs actually were built in a day.

Among the highlights of which Couric is proud was last week's interview with Michael J. Fox a day after radio host Rush Limbaugh accused the actor of not taking his Parkinson's disease medicine in order to accentuate his symptoms while shooting a commercial for a Democratic candidate favoring stem cell research.

Couric considered Thursday's interview with Fox "absolutely riveting TV, not to mention an important news story."

In other words: it was the opposite of anythig ever written about Suri Cruise.

It takes a lot to surprise the staff of The Hollywood Gossip. For example, Nicole Richie NOT fainting after working up any sort of sweat would be shocking.

However, news that Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe have separated after seven years of marriage definitely caused an audible gasp in the office.

A Reese Witherspoon Photo

"We are saddened to announce that Reese and Ryan have decided to formally separate," a rep for the couple said in a statement released Monday. "They remain committed to their family and we ask that you please respect their privacy and the safety of their children at this time."

TMZ.com first reported the couple's split and People magaine confirmed it.

Witherspoon, 30, and Phillippe, 32, have two children, daughter Ava, 7, and son Deacon, 3.

Witherspoon, who won an Oscar for her role in last year's hit Walk the Line, is next expected to appear in the drama Rendition. Phillippe is currently starring in the WWII drama, Flags of Our Fathers.

We hope Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore aren't next to call it quits.
