Wonder if he used such language around the beach beauties? David Hasselhoff is feeling kind of played out and frustrated these days. In the upcoming issue of Men's Journal, the former star of "Knight Rider" and "Baywatch" moans about how he is overlooked for prime acting roles. ". . .I should be on 'The Perfect Storm.' Why am I not doing pictures like that?" he asked. George Clooney seems to be the target of most of his bitterness. "Look at the roles I've had. I had to talk to a car," he said alluding to the infamous KITT.

He's uber in Germany. Bigger than the Bismarck, Berlin's Alexanderplatz and the super chili dog at Der Wienerschnitzel rolled into one. David Hasselhoff of the syndicated cheesecake-by-the-sea show "Baywatch" is a music star in Deutschland, regularly filling 15,000-seat halls with a rock 'n' roll production that would do Rick Springfield proud. Tomorrow, the former star of "Knight Rider" will try to crack the American market with his pay-per-view special, "David Hasselhoff & His Baywatch Friends," a 90-minute affair that also features Marla Maples Trump, a kooky swimsuit competition and, of course, David singing.

"The Young and the Restless," which is midway through its 14th year on CBS, should be with the network even beyond its next 14 years. Everyone eagerly anticipated the debut of "Y&R" in March 1973, and John Conboy, producer at the time, didn't disappoint. Conboy (now executive producer of "Capitol") had, and still has, a talent for finding new actors that not only looked good on screen, but could act as well. (David Hasselhoff of "Knight Rider," who played Snapper Foster on "Y&R"; and Tom Selleck of "Magnum P.I.," who played Jed Andrews on "Y&R," were Conboy discoveries.

The makers of "Baywatch" have their standards. A couple of years ago, All American Television Productions, the company that produces the syndicated hit, decided to exclude crime elements from the weekly surf-and-silicone action series. That left "Baywatch" regular GregAlan Williams, who plays beach- patrolling cop Garner Ellerbee, without a job. And the opportunity for the program to explore "the very special, magical relationship between he and Mitch, played by David Hasselhoff," had all but vanished, said Syd Vinnege of All American.

WHEN WE first heard Stephon Marbury was starring in a musical in China titled "I Am Marbury," we briefly morphed into Tom McGinnis and let go with a lusty, "Are you kidding me?" The 37-year-old Marbury, it seems, is a megastar in China. Bigger than Jerry Lewis in France or David Hasselhoff in Germany. Heck, there's even a statue of the two-time NBA All-Star outside the MasterCard Center in Beijing where he led the Ducks to the Chinese Basketball Association title in March. The musical, which opened last night in Beijing and runs 11 days, is sold out for the first three shows.

Filed in Los Angeles Superior Court this week, the invasion-of-privacy suit is over a June 26 story (in stores) suggesting that Reese didn't want to tell the suits behind her coming flicks that she was pregnant, and was hiding her bod under 1920s-style swimsuits, baggy clothing, and "Empire-waist dresses.

WHEN BIANCA RYAN writes that back-to-school essay next month about how she spent her summer vacation, she'll probably need a second page. Then again, maybe she'll just bring in a videotape. The 11-year-old from Mayfair last night became the $1 million winner of NBC's "America's Got Talent" after winning more votes than nine other acts who performed in the show's finals Wednesday night. Looking stunned and tearful, Bianca told host Regis Philbin, "I don't even know" when he asked her how she felt about the win. By that time, like viewers at home, she'd had to wait through a seemingly interminable number of variety acts until, at 9:55 p.m., she finally learned that she was in the Top 5, and a few minutes later, the Top 3. Runners-up: another 11-year-old, Tennessee yodeler Taylor Ware, and a family of traditional Irish dancers and musicians from California known as Celtic Spring.

Enough about Leonardo DiCaprio, for now. What happened to yesterday's dreamboat, Brad Pitt? Without the blond-on-blonde drama provided by former girlfriend Gwyneth Paltrow, and without a big hit since 1995's "Seven," we haven't heard much Brad buzz lately. So the star is looking carefully at his next project, which may be "Smuggler's Moon," the based-on-a-true-story story of two brothers who ran a film company as a front for a thriving drug-smuggling outfit. Hunky Brad, a drug smuggler?

It was herpes zoster that did David Gest's noggin in, not Liza Minnelli's (allegedly vodka-fueled) rage. So says New York State Supreme Court Justice Jane Solomon, who yesterday threw out the always fabulous-looking Gest's $10 mil civil assault lawsuit against his estranged wife. Gest claims Minnelli beat him around the head and torso so viciously during their less-than-idyllic time together that he had to be hospitalized. The judge ruled that Gest's doctor failed to rebut Minnelli's medical expert, who said the 53-year-old producer's headaches were caused by the herpes zoster virus, which causes shingles.
