Celebrity Heroes Spotlight: Eye on Dick Belzer!
Dick didn't let his fragile build and lack of intellectual success stop him, he went on to pay someone to ghost write a few books. One touching on a subject very close to his heart, "UFO's, JFK, and Elvis: Conspiracies You Don't Have To Be Crazy To Believe" (Ballantine Books, 1999). Dick has had not one, not two but three successful marriages! And while sometimes he gets knocked down Dick will always hire his lawyer to get him back up again! Wrestler Hulk Hogan hurt him while demonstrating a wrestling move on a 1986 TV show called 'Hot Properties'. He was knocked unconscious and required stitches on his head. He sued Hulk for $5 million, but later settled out of court. Due to excessive wimpiness, Mr. Belzer has difficulty doing anything requiring physical activity and in a twist of irony was recently injured again when Hulk Hogan's daughter accidentally hit him in the face with her hair when she turned her head. Mr. Belzer was knocked unconscious and taken to the hospital where he recieved three stitches in the face. He has not decided whether he will sue Ms. Hogan or not, fearing her father may again kick his ass for real this time.
Mr. Belzer claims that he knows more than any of the soldiers in Iraq because he "reads" 20 newspapers a day and they don't. Okay Dick - we believe you, *wink wink*. But that's our Dick! He lives to make us laugh - whether the joke is on him or not.
