THOU DOST PROTEST TOO MUCH!
When David Hasseloff was asked by a TMZ reporter how he was doing, David’s over the top gestures and overly exaggerated arm movements spoke volumes. Apparently he was using his over exaggerated body movements to get his point across – that he was healthy and that he was fine . But the only point that I believe came across was in the words of Shakespeare” methinks thou dost protest too much!”
He was only asked how he was doing. He could have said “Fine thank you for asking.” But instead he gave way too much information- a clear signal of deception or that he is hiding something.
LOUD AND AN ANGRY EDGE TO HIS TONE OF VOICE
He also said the following in a very angry, hostile, LOUD tone as he looked directly at the reporter and into the camera:
“I’m in Encino I’m with my family. Contrary to reports I’m healthy. I did NOT have a seizure (said with outstretched arms at their maximum distance)
SIGN OF DECEPTION
Then David turns his whole body away from the reporter and away from the camera as he looks to the side while speaking these words: “ I did not be admitted to a psychiatric ward.”
Then David turns back to the camera and points to his chest as he says, My private life is exactly that,” Private !” as he cups his hands and balls both of them into a fist like position indicating extreme anger.
HE DOESN’T LOOK TOO HAPPY TO ME
He then goes on to say “I’m happy” (said in a very unhappy and angry tone with no smile or happy facial expression) I’m healthy “ as he points both fingers directly to the camera which is also indicative of anger) as he says “Have a lovely day” as he kisses his hand and throws a kiss to the camera . as if he is saying “ kiss off!”
REASON’S HE CAN’T POSSIBLY BE HEALTHY OR HAPPY
There is no question that the Hoff is NOT healthy, nor is he happy! If he has a drinking problem and an ambulance was called and he was reported to be disoriented, how can he be healthy? If he acted like he was completely out of it when he came back from Canada and his keeper Al had to wave a paper in front of the cameras so no one could see how messed up David acted. So how is that healthy? It is NOT!
If his 16 tear old daughter Hailey was crying as he daddy was in the ambulance ahead of her not knowing what was going to happen to her beloved father, how happy can he be about that? When he thinks back to his infamous hamburger tape, how happy can he be about that? If this is the 5thtime he has been in the ER this year, how happy can he be about that? If his ex wife just got busted for a second DUI in 9 months and is getting sued from hr previous DUI, how happy can he be about that? And finally, how happy can he be about his daughters having to be the parent to two messed up parents- he and his wife Pamela. With ALL of these things going on,how is David happy?
WHAT DAVID SHOULD REALLY BE ANGRY ABOUT- HIS BEING IN DENIAL!
He is NOT! His voice showed it and his body language showed it.
On the tape he appears to be agitated and annoyed at the rumors which he tries to set straight . He fails miserably to convince anyone.
He appears to be angry at the reporter for asking the question in the first place.
David should be angry at one person- the person he sees in the mirror. He should be angry at David for not getting his head out of the sand and taking the blinders off and seeing what he is doing to himself, He should be angry at himself for trying to kill himself with alcohol as we have seen first hand via his hamburger video. He should be angry at himself for putting his daughters through his issues. And finally, he should be angry at himself for not getting help, going into rehab and sorting himself out.
And if it is true that he was at the Cedars Sinai Medical Center for 48hours on a 5150 you can bet every cent you have that he was in a psychiatric ward. So when you see him turn to the side and break eye contact with the reporter and the camera- he body language says he is clearly LYING!
DEJA VU! HEARING DENNIS COLE’S IDENTICAL ANGRY VOICE AND TONE IN DAVID HASSLEHOFF
Seeing this tape makes me so sad. It reminds me so much of actor Dennis Cole, whom I blogged about several days ago. Years before Dennis died his untimely death due to alcohol and pills, he sounded a lot like David did in this TMZ tape. David’s angry and hostile tone was reminiscent of Dennis’ angry and hostile tone when he was obviously “using” and in denial.
This is a chilling reminder of how a person’s tone of voice can tell you so much if you really listen to what they are saying and how they are saying things. I pray with all my heart that David somehow sees the light and doesn’t end up on the same road to death as my former neighbor, Dennis Cole. http://www.drlillianglass.com
