Pam Anderson’s kids know about her sex tape: ‘They know. Stupid internet’

Pam Anderson

Here is Pamela Anderson in the April issue of Elle (the one with Emma Watson on the cover). She looks unexpectedly classy in a demure top and flirty skirt. Much has been made of her new pixie cut. I honestly couldn’t figure out why Pam would go for such a drastic haircut after having big hair for so long. Her hair was as much a part of her image as, say, Jennifer Aniston’s hair is. If I was planning on going super short, I’d probably do it in stages instead of ripping the band-aid off. Going from long to super short seems like a really brave thing. I know how silly that sounds, but hair is such a big part of identity to many women.

Now I understand why Pam went short in a super fast way. She talks about it in Elle, and it sounds like she really wanted to leave her default setting of 20 years (credit to CB) behind. She wanted to change up her image and leave her bad marriages behind too. She’s talking about the Tommy Lee marriage (and maybe the one to Kid Rock?) in this interview. I can’t say I blame her. Tommy is bad news for women. Here are some Pam excerpts:

Her drastic short cut: “At first I thought I looked like Anderson Cooper or like a Q-tip or something. But now I feel really powerful. I have a friend who is an awesome, studly man, and he goes, ‘You know, some women cut their hair and it makes them look even more masculine, but you look even more feminine.'”

Hair changes everything:“I thought it would be weird having sex with short hair but then I kind of got into the mode.”

Her past lives: “The rock-star thing became very destructive, like, wow. I didn’t know what I was doing. I just kind of became that thing. The hair, that rock-star kind of lifestyle, just living a dream. It kind of took over. It started out very innocent and then I turned into a cartoon character. And I started to feel like a cartoon character.”

Have her sons seen the sex tape? “I don’t know if they’ve seen it, but they know about it. They know about everything. Stupid Internet. I don’t know why everyone is so impressed with it.”

[From Elle]

Ha. On that last point, I wonder if Pam was questioning why everyone is impressed with the internet OR her tape. That’s pretty rough about her sons knowing about the tape. She previously admitted that they are teased in school because of her Playboy shoots. What an uncomfortable position for both Pam and her kids.

Here’s Pamela out shopping with her current (ex-)husband Rick Salomon a few days ago. I still can’t believe she remarried him.

    I really like her with the short hair. She wears it well.

    • Camille (The Original) says:

      Agree. So, so, so much better.

    • Suze says:

      Oddly enough, out of all the women who have gone pixie in the last couple of years: Hathaway, Lawrence and Cyrus (I know – only sorta pixie that one), I think Pam looks by far the best.

  2. Dani2 says:

    That Elle photo is gorgeous. Her makeup look in that photo with the pink dress is cringe-worthy though. And the over-plucking of the eyebrows is not a good look.
    Regarding her sons knowing about her sex tape, that must be really hard for them because school kids can be absolutely brutal with their teasing.

    • Vanessa says:

      I think she’d look gorgeous with fuller eyebrows.

    • Dutch says:

      She looks like Tammy Faye Bakker in that pink dress pic

    • Nikki L. says:

      Yeah she needs to lay off the harsh colors, it makes her look a lot older. Softer makeup suits her.

      And agree with Vanessa, she needs to up her brow game a little bit. Overplucked is way out.

  3. MrsBPitt says:

    Got to give Pam credit…I have only seen pictures of her sons on very rare occasions, and they look like nice, normal young men. I haven’t heard of them getting into any trouble….I’m sure they wouldn’t watch the sex tape…who would want to watch their parents getting busy! Yuck!

  4. The Wizz says:

    Following on from the January Jones post, Pammys brows are an example of thin drawn on brows ageing a person. How fab would she look with a thick pair!

    • Dani2 says:

      I said the exact same thing in that thread. She’s a prime example of overplucking.

    • MrsBPitt says:

      she needs thicker brows, especially with that shorter hair…

    • Miffy says:

      Was just thinking the same, HD those things! She’d look so much better.

    • QQ says:


      That said kudos to Pamela for putting the tits and the drunk Marilyn at the beach Impersonation away

    • StaceyP says:

      Hate to inform you ladies, but as you get older your eyebrows just do not grow back, especially lighter hair. I learned from my mom who literally had maybe 5 hairs above each eye. I didn’t over pluck when I was younger, but as I approach 50, I am having to draw in ‘extra brow’ as they are getting sparse. So at this point Pam probably doesn’t have much choice in what she is doing with her brows.
      Well maybe Hollywood does brow transplants?

      • mayamae says:

        My cousin had “Brooke Shields” eyebrows until chemotherapy. Now she has the thinnest palest brows. Her hair also went from a lifetime of auburn to just plain brown. It’s the strangest thing, and I probably wouldn’t believe if I hadn’t seen it.

      • Whatwhatnot says:

        Ugh, Pamela was theeee icon in the 90’s when I was a teen and I did the whole overplucking thing well into my mid-20’s.

        Now I WISH I could grow a full brow back, and I hate that I have to pencil in areas and that it takes like 10 minutes of my morning to pencil then in straight lol

      • lisa says:

        mine are naturally sparse, i have been putting latisse on them for about 2 yrs and they never looked better

      • Mrs Odie says:

        Yep. I said something similar in the January Jones thread. That’s why full brows make you look younger. Just like thick hair. Hair thins as you age (it migrates to the tip of your nose), so those of us over-40 gals couldn’t grow in our brows, no matter how much we may want to.

        At least the sex tape is of her with the kids’ father. I’m sure it’s mortifying, but no more or less than having Pam and Tommy as parents. Surely they’re surrounded by celebuspawn who’ve seen it all.

  5. Assistant Rachel says:

    I like her new image. She looks so much better these days.

    • vic says:

      Me too. Much softer.

    • Nicolette says:

      I like it too. It was time for her to drop the stripper look (no offense to strippers). The short hair and the clothes she’s been wearing really make her look so much better. As attractive as she is, she doesn’t need to have it all hanging out. I give her kudos, after making a career on being a sex symbol, it must be a little hard to change your image, but it works she looks great. The eyebrows could use a fix though.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Me too. Huge fan of the short hair on Pam…I’ve always had a soft spot for her. I think all her animal advocacy work plays a big part in how I feel about her.

    • mayamae says:

      Didn’t she attempt to overhaul her image a few years back? I remember her talking about having surgery to downgrade her implants to make her better proportioned (her words). Then at some point it looks like she went back and had bigger implants placed. She also had some consultant who placed her in more appropriate clothing with softer hair and makeup. She was really pretty, but it didn’t last long.

      • Bridget says:

        She has a make-under about once or twice a decade. I remember way back when she was with Marcus Schenkenberg she removed her implants because they wouldn’t fit in designer clothes. And then she eventually had them put back in and even bigger.

      • mayamae says:

        I don’t think implants are supposed to be switched out like a woman does with her purses. I can’t imagine what her scars look like.

      • Bridget says:

        Its supposed to be such a painful surgery, I couldn’t imagine doing it once let alone multiple times, but Pam’s boobs are her livelihood. And she’s still hustling – she didn’t put her money away when she was making it regularly (remember the dispute with the contractor?) so the boobs are important.

        And I know some people have a soft spot for Pam, but I find her gross. Yes, she seems like she’d be pleasant if you spoke to her… But there’s just way too much sketchiness with her. I can’t believe she married Solomon again. YUCK.

    • Eleonor says:

      Me too. The first picture is really cute. She should stop with ton of heavy makeup, she looks younger without.

      • Kittypants says:

        Agreed. The hair looks great but the heavy make-up isn’t doing her any favours. I get the impression she doesn’t feel ‘complete’ without it on though.

  6. BeckyR says:

    Her boys must be so proud.

    • nofkksgiven says:

      what are you trying to say?

    • MsMirna says:

      We can’t all be perfect moms. She, at least, seems to be trying.

    • Snowpea says:

      What an awful thing to say? Pam, by all accounts, is a lovely, humble woman with a sweet demeanour and passionately advocate about animal rights to boot.

      Her sons MUST be so proud *shaking my head*

    • Agnetha says:

      Seriously, I like Pam and all, but she’s made her career off of being naked and selling her body. Her kids must be embarrassed of all her naked photos, sex tapes (she has several), and marriages. She does seem like a nice person, but that doesn’t mean her kids still don’t cringe at things she has done.

  7. Rhea says:

    I like Pam. Seems like a good mom despite her taste of “bad boys”.
    I can’t help to notice, though—that both her and Kim.K have the same idea to wear either white or pastel outfit in order to look demure and classy.

  8. Lucy2 says:

    I would imagine that ‘s hard for her kids, but then she went and remarrried…that guy. Ugh.
    I actually don’t like the super short haircut on her so much, but I think it was a good move to change it up.

  9. gogoGorilla says:

    I like the haircut but I think she needs to update the color and completely overhaul her makeup choices. They’re both pretty aging, IMO. She looks great in the Elle shot without the overdone eyes.

  10. Jenns says:

    I love her hair. She looks so much better with that cut. She just needs to soften the makeup and it will make her look much younger.

    • jaye says:

      Even she still looks kind of “hard” in up close pics of her face, I do think she looks good with the short hair. The long hair really aged her.

  11. paola says:

    I know why people make a big deal of that tape. 15 years ago all my male friends were praising her b-job technique.
    One of my flatmates used to go out with this douchebag and he told her she should take notes from that tape.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I thnk it is also because they were both crazy specimens of their genders and they were soooooo into each other. So much enthusiasm! The did it like they loved and lusted in a crazy way. With KK’s and Paris Hilton’s tapes, these were just people posing for a camera and going through the motions. Because Pam and Tommy were really the first, they had no idea when they were making it that the world would see it. The “realness” is really hot.

    • Illyra says:

      “One of my flatmates used to go out with this douchebag and he told her she should take notes from that tape.”

      Eww. What a pig.

  12. lisa2 says:

    Here is the thing.. her sex tape was with her husband on their honeymoon. She was having sex with the father of her children. I don’t think taping you sexy time is smart on any level. But she was with her husband; not so random guy that she is not with anymore.

    and as someone said it was 15 years ago. This is what happens with women. You very seldom see people bringing up the past of a man and holding it against him as if it was yesterday.

    This softer look is more sexy than when she had everything hanging out. But then people do grow and change. She seems to be a very good mother. That is what her boys need to think about; not a sex tape that happened before they were born.

    • Luca26 says:

      Also I really do believe it was stolen they fought really hard in the courts to get it out of the public.

      • lisa2 says:

        I don’t get why people get upset with what 2 adults in a relationship do.

      • Luca26 says:

        Personally I don’t get upset I just don’t think it’s my beeswax and I don’t watch any sex tapes. I’ve never seen any of them except for the random clean clips that have turned up on tv. I think as you said they were on their honeymoon and were violated and robbed so I don’t judge them in the same way I do Kardashian, Hilton and so on that sold their tapes and then feigned innocence. I roll my eyes at them because they are full of it not because of what they do in bed because we all like sex (hopefully).

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I think you make a lot of good points. It wasn’t the smartest move to make the tape, but she was a young, newlywed, in love. It wasn’t sleazy.

    • Tapioca says:

      True, but she also made one with Bret Michaels!

      Her oldest son must be nearly 18 by now – I feel so old…

      • V4Real says:

        Yep and she shouldn’t be saying stupid internet, she should be saying stupid Pam for picking up a recorder to record her most private moments. You would think she would have learned from her first mistake and not do a second sex tape with Bret. Once bitten, twice shy as they say.

        BTW I saw the Pam/Lee tape. My crush on Tommy Lee got a little bit bigger.

      • Candy Love says:

        @ V4Real

        I agree I don’t know why she blaming the internet. The internet didn’t make the video she and her ex husband did so they only have themselves to blame.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Lol, I haven’t seen it but I hear he is, um, impressive.

      • Nicolette says:

        Yes she did, and honestly I never believed they were ‘stolen’.

      • KAI says:

        The tape with Bret was made before she met, married and filmed Tommy but the tape did not surface until much later.

      • V4Real says:

        @KAI That just goes to show that she is careless with her private property and shouldn’t be filming herself in the first place. I can understand if they filmed it and enjoyed it amongst themselves, then destroyed or erased it. It makes me wonder if it was really stolen.

      • KAI says:

        It seemed to be Bret and not Pam who fought hard to not have that tape released so, yes, it’s possible that they may not have been stolen. In any case, I also saw the Pam/Tommy tape and I don’t think she nor her two sons should be ashamed and there is certainly no reason for Tommy to be!

    • lovething says:

      @lisa2 Theres more than one sex tape though. Plus theres that book she wrote and winkingly acknowledges is autobiographical. Shes given many graphic interviews on her sex life. I remember one where she talks about eventually breaking the bed in the process. No kid deserves a mum with no self-censor button. Lets not rush to rehabilitate this one just yet.

  13. MsAubra says:

    At least it’s their parents…

    Now if they find out about the other one with Brett Michaels

  14. Cleveland Girl says:

    Love her short hair, not she needs to lose the heavy make up. It ages her by 10 years!

  15. Heat says:

    I really like her look, with the low/no make-up in the photo shoot. However, in the candid photos with full make-up, Pam looks more like Tammy-Faye Baker.
    Yes, I just aged myself.

  16. Belle Epoch says:

    I feel like people are underestimating how crushing it would be to have a sex tape of your parents watched by every boy (and many dads) in your city (and some girls too). This will haunt them for years. Other kids will still be posting it on their computers if/when they go to college as a haha prank. How mortifying. I don’t think it can be played off as no big deal, although of course she will try.

    • BendyWindy says:

      It’s not that I don’t think it’s crushing for her kids. I just think she shouldn’t blame the internet. The internet didn’t tape itself having sex with Tommy Lee. Is it a terrible thing that they did? That’s debateable, but the fact is that it happens and it sucks that her kids are potentially being hurt by it, but that’s not on the public. It’s on Pam and Tommy.

      • claire says:

        I think you might be taking too literal what sounded like an off-the-cuff or sarcastic comment. Many people say things like that it doesn’t mean they literally are blaming that.

  17. Delta Juliet says:

    I went from long (middle of my back) to a pixie cut about 4 months ago. I LOVE IT (which is the important part) and I have gotten loads of compliments. Some weird (wow, you’re so brave) and a few not-so-complimentary (well, as long as you like it), but honestly, I have had a lot of men tell me it’s very sexy. And I feel sexy with it!

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      I love short hair on women..except for on me!
      Honestly, I wish I had the balls to do it because it looks so sexy and modern and (I would imagine) quite freeing!

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I think the neck exposure is such a sexy thing. I have a short neck and curly hair, so it can never happen on my head, but I love it when other people do it!

  18. lisa2 says:

    I wonder what she would look like with a darker brown/blonde hair color. I think it would soften her face more.

  19. Illyra says:

    I don’t normally care for short cuts like this but she looks great!

  20. Heather H says:

    I really think she’s had her breast implants reduced as well, they look much more normal now. Overall she looks sooo much better!

  21. Sonia says:

    I have always loved Pammy, she has always been herself good or bad, and just goes with it. She doesn’t pimp her kids out, you never see pics of them at soccer games (side eye RHOBH/LaxAnn) and I hope Tommy’s abusive craziness is at a minimum for them. BTW I own both tapes lol

  22. Lucy says:

    She looks really good, I must say.

  23. nk868 says:

    i know you’ll say i’m crazy for saying this, because i feel crazy for saying it, but in that first picture if her eyebrows weren’t so crazy thin i would say she allllmost looks like elizabeth banks’ older sister?

  24. BendyWindy says:

    I think she looks good in the Elle shoot. Love the hair, love the makeup. She shouldn’t dye her brows. Leave them brown. If she would tone down the eye-liner in real life, she’d look amazing.

  25. vv says:

    I had super long hair in highschool and I chopped it all off into a similar hair style as Pam’s when I was sure I was entering the army and people actually asked if I cried while it was being cut.

    Umm no. I don’t cry when I trim my eyebrows or….other parts >.> It’s just hair! lol

    People are weird but I dig Pam’s short hair. I think she looks fantastic in the ELLE shoot too.

  26. kimber says:

    I cant believe her hair 🙁 too short and too blonde for the face and cut. As for her marriage? Dont think she was making money to keep her hollywood lifestyle so she married money. 🙁

    • Alana says:

      It’s not her hair that ages her, it’s all those years of skin damage. She’s looked the best she’s ever looked in a very long time.

  27. Quinn says:

    She looks at least ten years older than her chronological age…she has lived hard and it shows.

  28. Alana says:

    It took her kind of a while, but it looks like she’s finally figured out a fresh, true way to feel sexy as a woman. Finally. Good for her.

  29. Jeanette says:

    She looks great..but him..he is dressed as an aging grunge-band member. Tie your shoes stupid.

  30. Alexa says:

    Well… its more than them just being brats, they are acting out for a reason. Pamela said in the past that her children (and herself) have been physically and mentally abused by Tommy… Its actually worrying. When she wanted full custody, she spoke about how her kids were not safe with him. Hope they get help or therapy?

    Article sums it up:

  31. Shelley says:

    She looks great with the softer makeup – and I think the short hair suits her very well. I admire her – she seems to have done a good job raising her sons, and seems to have a good sense of humor about herself, judging from the photos she posted after running a recent marathon. This oafish looking guy though, ugh! I hope he just dresses scummily for some reason but is a good guy otherwise.

  32. Abby says:

    I love her. She’s so likeable and self aware. This hair looks great on her and I love the outfits.

  33. Randie says:

    I wonder if they have seen Ricks sex tape with Paris???

  34. tealily says:

    I love that white dress! WANT.

  35. Luna says:

    Wait. She used to be together with Marcus Schenkenberg? Wow!
