Nov. 30, 2009 — -- For a few famous faces, 2009 hasn't been very kind.
This year Lindsay Lohan launched a universally lambasted fashion line, David Hasselhoff awoke in a psychiatric hold, and Jon Gosselin destroyed his marriage and reality TV series. If you think the newly underway holiday season is going to take a toll on you, just imagine how these celebs might fare.
Yes, figuring out how to procure presents and deck the halls is stressful enough -- at least you (hopefully) don't have to worry about your father leaking yet another audio recording of you crying to the world at large, which is Lohan's likely Christmas surprise.
Below, check out three stars in danger of self-imploding over the holidays, and the courses of action they might want to consider:
Oh, the irony: Baywatch's beefcake lifeguard now needs life saving. According Radar Online, the day after Thanksgiving, Hasselhoff was checked into Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center under an involuntary psychiatric hold. Apparently, he had been drinking prior to his hospitalization. A representative for Hasselhoff did not immediately respond to ABCNews.com's request for comment.
On top of that on Saturday night Hasselhoff's ex-wife Pamela Bach was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving in Los Angeles. She's scheduled to appear in court on Christmas Eve.
It's the latest in a long line of drinking-related incidents for Hasselhoff. In October, according to the UK Sun and the New York Post, the "America's Got Talent" judge had a few swigs too many and punched the doctor at his London hotel after returning from Simon Cowell's birthday bash.
In September, Hasselhoff was reportedly hospitalized for alcohol poisoning after his 17-year-old daughter called paramedics to their home (though his reps contended he needed help because of an ear infection, not alcohol.) And in 2007, both his daughters filmed him drunk, on the floor, limbs flailing, attempting to eat a hamburger.
Prescription: Rehab. Rehab, rehab, rehab. That means no egg-nog.
