When Pamela Anderson made an appearance in New Zealand on Friday morning (there), she decided it would be classy to show everyone her ass crack. Because we’ve never seen it before, I guess. Maybe that was her rationale, that we need to see her ass every few years, just to remind us what “sketchy” looks like. I’m not sure if what happened could be considered a “wardrobe malfunction” because it seems like Pamela preplanned it. She was wearing one of her own designs (“You too can show your plumber’s butt”) for her fashion line A Muse. Oh! She was also wearing some kind of dingy, saggy thong that didn’t really hide anything. So. Gross.
Anyway, I hope Pam’s fashion line sells well, because she’s up to her sketchy thong in debt, according to Star Magazine. According to their sources – who sound pretty legit – Pam has a “mind-boggling total of liens filed against her” by multiple construction companies, and the state of California. Her total debt is $1.2 million, and it comes from doing multiple extensive renovations of her five-bedroom, three-bath Cape-Cod style Malibu home.
“It’s a bad situation,” Bruder Construction’s boss Jay Bruder tells Star. “A lot of people are owed a lot of money.” His lien again Pamela, filed in June, totals $674,043 for the cost “labor, materials and subcontractors to remodel main house, construct swimming pool and foundations for guest house” all in 2008-09.
Pamela’s problems are compounded by a lien filed in March by California’s Franchise Tax Board that claims she owes $252,360 in unpaid income tax from 2007.
If these claims are valid, Pamela may have to sell her house – valued at $6 million – to cover her debts.
“Her creditors do have some recourse to get their money back,” says Steve Cron, a random attorney. “That cold include going to court and having the property foreclosed on, forcing her to sell her house to pay them off. It’s a long, cumbersome process, but it can be done.”

The article goes on to say that Pamela barely has any money coming in. In the past two years, she’s had her brief E! reality show, a few appearances in low-budget movies, the Australian Big Brother, and the now-cancelled Kath & Kim. But! Pam does have a perfume coming out this November – so, mark your calendars if you want to smell like cocoa butter and tragedy. And she’s got this fashion line. Ugh. Maybe it’s time Pam got her real estate license.
