Pamela Anderson & Rick Salomon are getting divorced again, of course


I never paid attention to Rick Salomon long enough to form much of an opinion of him. He’s the guy in Paris Hilton’s sex tape, the sex tape that made her famous. He also married Shannon Doherty at some point back in the early aughts. He married Pamela Anderson back in 2007, but they had it annulled after a few months. Then they went back for more at some point last year I guess, and they got married again. And now it’s over. Good lord, Pam. You can do better than this!!

Pam Anderson is pulling the plug on her marriage to Rick Salomon … TMZ has learned. This will be Pam’s second split from Salomon, whom she married in 2007 and stayed with all of 2 months. She got the marriage annulled. She was also married to Tommy Lee and Kid Rock.

Pam went public in January, saying she married Salomon again.

Interesting timing … Salomon, a world-class poker player, won $2.8 million in the World Series of Poker Big One for One Drop last Tuesday. Pam filed on Thursday, so under the community property laws she gets half by the skin of her teeth … unless there’s a prenup.

In case you don’t recognize Salomon, he’s the one who co-starred with Paris Hilton in the famous sex tape, “One Night in Paris.” And then there’s Pam’s famous flick with Tommy Lee.

[From TMZ]

I actually forgot how many times Pam has been through this whole marriage-and-divorce thing. I completely blocked out the fact that she married Kid Rock. Seriously, I have so little memory of that. I think Pam just has issues with men and relationships. I think she’s like a dirtbag-magnet. And maybe those dirtbags genuinely love her (I believe Tommy Lee genuinely loved her), but she needs to phase them out. She’s 47 years old! She should settle down with a lawyer or a restaurateur. Someone with a real job, at the very least.

  1. don't kill me i'm french says:

    She needs someone with a real job and a good hair artist

  2. Sue says:

    Marrying an everyday guy would not get her in the “news”. Marrying Rick with the intention of divorcing in a few months does! 🙂

  3. Suze says:

    Oh Pam. I have a real soft spot for her, but she really needs to get it together. Ditch the douchebag men and the harsh makeup and brittle blond hair. You have a lovely bone structure, let it carry you through middle age.

    Oh, well, at least she’s getting a start on that program. Good riddance, Rick.

    • mystified says:

      I too have a soft spot for her. I don’t care for her sense of style, but she seems genuinely modest and humble and plain nice. In her unique way she’s adorable.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Me too. I feel kind of protective of her, but she seems to have a penchant for the bad boys.

      She could look amazing. I DO like her with short hair but wish she would go down to a honey-blonde or light ash brown color and skip the platinum.

      She had extensions last I saw..did she take them out or are these just older pictures? She should take the extensions out for sure.

      • kri says:

        Love her short hair and covered up style. LOOK AT HIM!!! He is more heinous than an anus. I wouldn’t sit in a chair that he sat put his ass on.

    • homegrrrl says:

      I like her and her men too. So what. Some of us find dirt bag sexy. My men are all harsh carnys. Love em. She should find that electrician surfer again. MeeRow.

    • lisa says:

      i had high hopes for her, even with the bad hair cut. think shes on drugs? what other reason would be for these bad life choices?

  4. Cherry says:

    I don’t think ‘settling down with a lawyer or a restaurateur’ is really Pam’s style. She’ll be a free-spirited girl forever, always looking for a fling or a good time. It doesn’t matter that she’s 47 years old now. Frankly, I don’t know why it should, either. This is just how she rolls.

  5. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    I’ve always felt sorry for her and thought she had serious self-esteem issues.

    • Erinn says:

      Me too. Also – she’s ONLY 47? Poor lady is looking rather hard. She was sooo pretty during her “home improvement” days.

      • Rice says:

        I was afraid to talk about her looks but you’ve hit the nail on the head. I’m still in her corner and hope she pulls through.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Re: Anderson’s appearance.
        This is mentioned on every Pam Anderson thread but she has Hep C. It’s hell on your organs and body in general. I don’t doubt that this has taken a toll on her physically. Just something to remember when we critique her appearance–and I don’t mean that in a bitchy way, it’s reminder for myself as well.

        She WAS beautiful on Home Improvement, but honestly we could say the same about every celeb in their late 40s if we compare them to how they looked when they were in their mid-twenties.

      • Bridget says:

        @OKitt: I thought there was some dispute about that, as Tommy Lee (I realize not the best source) always said she made it up. And she’s continued to drink, which would be a definite no-no.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Oh I don’t know..maybe?
        Not sure why she would make something like that up?

        It’s not exactly easy for your next relationship when you’ve stated publicly that you have Hep C, which is probably exactly why Tommy Lee would deny it.
        It would be a very extreme and strange thing to lie about, that’s for sure.

      • Bridget says:

        The woman married Rick Solomon twice, perhaps judgement isn’t her strong suit. But Tommy Lee definitely said she made it up, and she has had several public, long term relationships as well as her fairly well known side job as an occasional escort, so it would be weird if she actually had Hep C and not a single person said a thing about it. Especially considering how acrimonious her split with Kid Rock was – the rumor at the time was that she was pregnant with his baby but chose to terminate, it was actually that ugly a split. And considering Tommy Lee’s lifestyle, he certainly doesnt look like he has health issues.

    • Binky says:

      She’s still beautiful. She’s had a damn hard time when you think about her recent admissions of sexual assault. Must be hard to live through that kind of thing and have fully functional relationships. I hope she finds her peace.

  6. SolitaryAngel says:

    One would *think* that, at the age of 47, a person could remember to wear pants when going outside. How can we expect her to get her man-issues straight when she still can’t seem to properly dress herself? FFS. And yeah, ditching the horrible harsh makeup and brittle hair would soften her look so much. It’s sad to me how beautiful she was, but she prefers to look like Truck Stop Barbie.

    • Cherry says:

      LMAO @ ‘Truck Stop Barbie’ 🙂
      She’s always looked like that, though- with the terrible lined eyebrows, yellow hair, melon-sized boob implants and tacky clothes. That’s her style. It looked sort of cute when she was young because she was so beautiful, but now… not so much. Still, I’m pretty sure she thinks she looks nice. She has terrible taste, yes- in men and her own attire- but that’s her choice.

    • John Thing says:

      Truck Stop Barbie. That is the funniest thing I’ve heard in a while. Thank you very much!

  7. blue marie says:

    This is OT but I hate her haircut. I’m not sure if it’s the cut or just the styling but it doesn’t work for her.

    • LadySlippers says:

      •blue Marie•

      It’s the über blonde that kills it for me. If she went for a softer honey blonde I think it would be more flattering….

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        I wrote the same above! Love the cut but HATE the color. Too harsh!

  8. Moira says:

    Perhaps she attracts dirt bags because she is a dirt bag. Just saying.

    • tessy says:

      She’s not a dirt bag at all. She’s actually a very nice girl from a small town who’s made some unfortunate choices in her men… like lots of other women.

  9. Lady says:

    I adore Pam, I really do. I’m not sure why I adore her because she can’t act and everything about her shtick is tacky and trashy but she seems like a good soul, if somewhat of a lonely soul. I get the impression she tries to do the love thing but freaks out and dissociates at some point and then everything falls apart… and then she realises she’s done this and she wants to give it another go. Inevitably it fails and then she thinks its proof that she cant do love at all. I dont know why I just psychoanalyzed someone I know almost nothing about but thats the vibe I get.

    • homegrrrl says:

      She was victimized repeatedly from a young age, and the over the top styling is a way to disassociate; she has admitted this. Of course she tried to tone it down, with the shorter hair and preppier clothing etc, but her psychology just overcame. But honestly, she’s intense and larger than life, and so are her men, who must have similar broken-ness and compensation issues. I’m also showy and verbose to make up for the times of stuck-ness and pain. We all do our best, and it doesn’t mean we lack compassion or the desire/capacity to love and be loved in return- it just looks less conventional.

  10. floridaseaturtle says:

    I get the feeling that he is more a “Handler”, that she has known for years, and sometimes falls back in love with. Similar with Brittney’s ex fiance. I think middle age and health problems are showing i her hair, so maybe a little mercy there. It is probably not going to be easy for her to just date and marry some normal/non-industry guy. But IMO, Rick’s creep factor seems to have a life of its own. Gawd, Girl can do better…

    • Chrissy says:

      Pam could do much better for herself, I agree. But why does she have
      to marry every guy she gets involved with? Maybe it gives her valid-
      ation and some self-worth? Any ideas?

  11. GeeMoney says:

    I actually really do like her, but I wish she’d actually find a decent guy to settle down with. She has the worst taste in men.

    PS – I loooooved her show V.I.P.

  12. Liz says:

    Pam is still beautiful. She has the cutest figure. I would love to have those arms, waist and legs. Rick, on the other hand, is disgusting. He’s really let himself go.

  13. Triple Cardinal says:

    As much as I’d love to tsk-tsk her–and I’d love to–I’m reminded of her statement made at Cannes about the sexual assaults she endured when she was younger.

    That pretty much explains/excuses everything.

    FWIW, Years ago, an interior design magazine published photos of her Malibu home. It was really lovely! It was all Shabby Chic design and Vintage furnishings and was just beautifully done. And she had done it all herself. Evidently, the way she expressed herself via clothes and makeup, and the way she expressed herself via her home were completely different.

    • Nicolette says:

      I agree. Those horrific experiences do explain a lot when it comes to her look and the problem she seems to have in relationships. It may not be the best thing right now but I always imagine her and Tommy getting back together for good when they are older and ready to truly settle down.

    • lisa says:

      that magazine article is when i friended her in my head. her house was so much like mine and we had the same dishes.

  14. FingerBinger says:

    Pam admitting that she was sexually abused really made me look at her differently. Maybe in some way this why she picks the men she does. She might think these are the men she deserves.

    • borgqueen says:

      I read 2 blinds about her. During home improvement, she had to sleep with Tim allem. When she stopped, he kicked off the show. I also read the hep C she made up when she broke up with Tommy and brings it out for good publicity.

      She is a party girl and free spirit. I agree she should be with a business man but that would be too boring.

  15. heidi says:

    The lengths the HW set will go to grab attention

  16. hannahG says:

    Is Pam lasering off the barbed wire tattoo on her left upper arm?

  17. Ice Queen says:

    I kinda feel sorry for her. I mean her life in general. Good thing she is passionate about saving animal’s lives. Her life is a mess.

  18. ek says:

    I can’t even focus on the actual article because…her hair.

  19. A Fan says:

    I always get the impression she’s searching for something…

    [*…peace of mind, perhaps?*]

  20. Mixtape says:

    I was going to comment on the good riddance of getting rid of Icky Ricky, but in reading over his list of past flames, I realized he has even worse taste in women than Pamela does in men. Shannen Dougherty AND Paris Hilton?!! How does it get any worse than that?

  21. Sumodo1 says:

    Didn’t Rick Salomon ALSO knock up Elizabeth Hurley?

  22. Andrea says:

    I have a soft spot for her too and I just don’t know why. I agree with those above, she has aged poorly in the face but she does have Hep C, so I think it explains it. I think she likes old and familiar..wasn’t she on and off with Tommy Lee too? You know the girl who goes back and screws the ex bf/husband when there is not another man around for her? She I think marries them again!

  23. Snowpea says:

    Omg I love Pam and always have. Without drawing too long a bow, she has a quality reminiscent of Marilyn – something broken about them both that makes you feel protective of them.

    The proof is in the pudding with the HW crowd. Even at the height of her fame she never used her boys for publicity. She looks like a loving, devoted mum and is a committed vego and animal rights activist. I love her!

    Now, the hair, however, is another matter. She looks like the old lady from ‘Are you being served’!

  24. Bob Loblaw says:

    I think the sun has done more to age her than anything else but she’s still very pretty and fit.
