Pamela Anderson poses during a photo call for her Broadway debut in "Chicago" at The Civilian Hotel on March 23, 2022 in New York City. Tim Allen attends the Disney+ Original Series "The Santa Clauses" Premiere at Walt Disney Studios on November 06, 2022 in Burbank, California.
Earlier this week, an excerpt from Pamela Anderson’s upcoming memoir, Love, Pamela detailed an unpleasant incident when she was on set of Home Improvement. Anderson, who was 23 years old at the time, said Tim Allen flashed her quickly in the hallway — completely naked. “He said it was only fair, because he had seen me naked. Now we’re even. I laughed uncomfortably.”
The next day, Anderson doubled down on her claim and spoke about the alleged flashing in more detail, telling Vanity Fair: “This true story is just one of many surreal and uncomfortable situations I learned to navigate.” She went on to emphasize that she has “no ill will” toward Allen, but that the incident “should never have happened.”
However, it now seems that Anderson is trying to make it clear that the claim was not made with malicious intent. She tells Variety, “Tim is a comedian, it’s his job to cross the line. I’m sure he had no bad intentions. Times have changed, though. I doubt anyone would try that post #MeToo. It’s a new world.”
A little too late for that, as a clip of Allen appearing to flash another one of their Home Improvement co-stars on set resurfaced online earlier this week, adding to the flashing controversy. The footage was taken from a blooper reel and shows a scene between Allen and his onscreen wife, played by Patricia Richardson. Facing away from the camera, Allen lifts the front of his kilt.
Speaking to gossip website TMZ after the blooper clip resurfaced, Richardson made it clear that Tim was “well dressed under there,” and went on to clarify that she was “shocked that he lifted the kilt, not by a man in boxer shorts.”
Anderson’s memoir and a Netflix documentary titled, Pamela, a Love Story, are set to drop Tuesday, January 31.
Pamela Anderson's Sexy Style Transformation Throughout the Years
Pamela Denise Anderson was born on July 1, 1967, in British Columbia. Pamela was first “discovered” at a British Columbia Lions football game when her image was shown on the stadium screen. The fans cheered her and she was brought down to the football field, and because of her fame in Vancouver, she signed a commercial contract with Labatt’s beer to be the “Blue Zone Girl.” After she booked more ads, Playboy soon approached her and by October 1989, she was on the cover of Playboy magazine.
With success from Playboy, Anderson moved to Los Angeles, California in 1990. A year later, she made her television debut on Home Improvement, where she starred as Lisa, the Tool Time Girl. Anderson appeared for 23 episodes from 1991-1997. Anderson then left to focus on Baywatch, playing the role of C.J. Parker.
In 1994, Pamela met Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee on New Year’s Eve 1994 in New York City. In February 1995, they got married in Cancun, Mexico. The couple welcomed two sons over the next few years, Brandon Thomas Lee (born June 6, 1996) and Dylan Jagger Lee (December 29, 1997). During this time, the couple had their pornographic video stolen from their home. Both of them sued the website that stole the video, but their case was not settled and the video is still on the internet. Two months later, Pamela filed for divorce when her husband assaulted her and he was sentenced to six months in jail.
