And the heat is on apparently for an unfortunate divorce proceeding between television star David Hasselhoff and his wife Pamela Bach. Back in the day on Baywatch, Pamela was a frequent guest star at the behest of David. David was also an Executive Producer of the show, as well as a main star. David, always seemed to go out of his way to spot light his wife.

According to news reports, Pamela's court request of a restraining order was denied. Let's hope all family court matters are settled amicably.

And for all of you Electra Anderson columnist fans, she will return.
