The one and only Pamela Anderson opened up about her early experiences in the entertainment industry. This included an unsettling encounter with a ‘90s sitcom star Tim Allen, who has outright denied that Anderson’s story ever took place.
According to Variety, Anderson discusses in her upcoming memoir “Love, Pamela,” about booking the role of Lisa the Tool Time Girl on the family sitcom “Home Improvement,” starring Tim Allen, Richard Karn and Patricia Richardson. From 1991-1997, Anderson appeared as Lisa for 23 episodes of the mentioned TV show. That role gave Anderson her first taste of major fame back in the day.
The actress writes about an on-set interaction she had with Allen on the set of the ABC series. Per an excerpt from the book published recently by Variety, ahead of the book’s January 31 release, Anderson wrote: “On the first day of filming, I walked out of my dressing room, and Tim was in the hallway in his robe. He opened his robe and flashed me quickly – completely naked underneath.”
“He said it was only fair because he had seen me naked. Now we’re even. I laughed uncomfortably,” added the actress, said a report on USA Today.
Allen denied Anderson’s allegation in a recent statement by Allen’s representative Marleah Leslie. “No, it never happened. I would never do such a thing,” said Allen in a statement.
The unflinching honesty of “Love, Pamela,” is previewed by Anderson’s allegation. “Love, Pamela,” a memoir that will see the “Baywatch” bombshell and Playboy cover girl cast aside the glamorous façade to tell her life story, interspersed with original poetry. While “Pamela, a love story,” an accompanying Netflix documentary, is also set to drop on January 31.
It is important that high-profile women such as Anderson are finally taking back their narratives, experts say, because doing so can be a crucial step in healing from trauma. In April, a licensed professional counselor, Jessica MacNair, said that “it’s your story to tell, and it doesn’t belong to anyone else. So, when that’s taken from you, it’s painful. It’s traumatic.” “So, for (Pamela) to reclaim that and do it on (her) own terms is inspiring and even healing,” added MacNair.
