Biography

Pamela Anderson (born 1.7.1967)
Pamela Anderson is an American / Canadian actress and glamour model, perhaps best known for her role in the popular American TV series Baywatch.

Childhood: Pamela Anderson was born in Ladysmith, British Columbia, to Carol and Barry Anderson. Her mother was a waitress and her father was a furnace repair man.

When she graduated from Highland Secondary School, Pamela Anderson moved to Vancouver and became a fitness instructor. When she went to watch a BC Lions match, she was shown on the big screen wearing a Labatts t-shirt. Labatts offered her a modelling contract, which she accepted.

In 1989, Pamela Anderson accepted an offer to model for Playboy and moved to Los Angeles to develop her career. After moving there, she landed a role as the original 'Tool Time Girl' on the sitcom Home Improvements, starring Tim Allen. She left the show after two seasons and it was then that she landed her breakthrough role, playing CJ Parker in Baywatch. Other actors in the show at the time included David Hasselhoff, Erika Eleniak and Yasmin Bleeth. Anderson returned to the role for a 2003 reunion show, Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding.

1996 saw Pamela Anderson starring in the film Barb Wire. It had a lightweight supporting cast and was a commercial flop. However, she continued appearing in Playboy and in April 1997, hosted an episode of Saturday Night Live.

In 2004, Pamela Anderson released a book, Star, which was co-written by Eric Shaw Quinn. She embarked on an extensive book-signing tour at Wal-Mart stores. Her second book, Star Struck, contains thinly-veiled references to her marriage to Tommy Lee.

The following year, she landed a role in a Fox sitcom, Stacked, playing the role of Skyler Dayton. The series also starred Christopher Lloyd.

The Comedy Central channel devised a show entitled the Roast of Pamela Anderson to pay respect to her. The show's guests included Courtney Love, Jimmy Kimmel and Sarah Silverman.

In July 2008, Pamela Anderson entered the Australian Big Brother house for three days. Her jaunt in the world of reality TV continued with Pam: Girl on the Loose on the E! channel.

Anderson took on the role of 'Genie in the Lamp' at the Aladdin pantomime, at the New Wimbledon Theatre in London. The role was previously played by Ruby Wax. Anita Dobson and Paul O'Grady were also lined up to play the role.

Personal Life: In 1995, Pamela Anderson married Tommy Lee, the drummer of Motley Crue. They had two sons, Brandon Thomas Lee (b.1996) and Dylan Jagger Lee (b. 1997). During their marriage, she was professionally known as Pamela Anderson Lee. A home sex video of the couple was stolen from their home and leaked onto the internet. Later, another video of Pamela Anderson and Bret Michaels of the band Poison was also leaked online.

Since divorcing Tommy Lee, Pamela Anderson has been engaged to Marcus Schenkenberg, a model, as well as Kid Rock. She married Kid Rock on a yacht in 2006. They divorced later that year. She then married Rick Salomon - formerly Paris Hilton's partner. However, in February 2008, she asked that the marriage be annulled, citing fraud as the reason for the annulment.

Pamela Anderson is a high profile advocate for PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals).

John Cleese To Star As Villain in Baywatch-but-not-Baywatch Spin-Off. What?


John Cleese David Hasselhoff Pamela Anderson

We’ll admit to being a tad confused with this one. A new Baywatch spin-off movie has been announced; with Monty Python star John Cleese fulfilling the role of antagonist.

But even though David Hasselhoff, Pamela Anderson and Alexandra Paul - who appeared as Mitch Buchannon, CJ Parker and Stephanie Holden in the original Baywatch series – will star, the film doesn’t really have anything to do with Baywatch. They don’t have the rights. They can’t mention the word Baywatch. And they probably don’t need to.
