Pamela Anderson didn’t want to wear panties on Dancing With The Stars

Pamela Anderson's All Natural Rehearsal Run!

Pamela Anderson isn’t doing too badly on this season of “Dancing With the Stars.” She’s a decent dancer with some natural ability (unlike Kate Gosselin, who has all the physical grace of a department store mannequin), but she seems to be stuck in this mode where she does a lot of sexy poses, honed over years of Playboy photo shoots, in lieu of actual footwork. And even when she’s dancing well, she kind of looks like a hot trashy mess with that ratty hair and the tiny outfits. But hey – that’s Pam, and what you see is what you get. I suppose we should all be thankful that the show’s production team put their foot down and forced Pammie to wear underpants. No, I’m not making that up.

“You exude so much sex appeal,” gushed Tonioli after the former Baywatch babe channeled Marilyn Monroe for her March 29 fox-trot. That’s not by accident. With a fashion philosophy of the more titillating, the better, Anderson, 42, insisted on trimming a couple of inches from the hem of her premiere-night mini. She also balked at wearing pasties (in case of a wardrobe malfunction), says a source – not to mention panties, says another. On that last item, she relented. Adds the source: “She had to, but she didn’t want to.” Another must? Perfect lighting. To score an interview, camera crews had to have ring lights, which help hide wrinkles. Says a set insider, “I’ve never, ever seen any celeb request that before.”

[From US Weekly, print edition, April 12, 2010]

I’m thinking that Pam may be hoping for a wardrobe malfunction on national TV, so everyone will be talking about her. Because we know one thing for sure, Pammie loves attention. But what she doesn’t seem to get is, we’ve already seen what she’s got – many, many times. As for the special lighting requests, I can’t say I’m surprised. This isn’t the first time we’ve heard that “ring flash” request from Pamela. And I can see why! Pam’s face up close is a little…Cruella DeVille these days. Probably all those years on the beach in the sun.

    She’s looking like a beast these days. What kills me is that she has two sons of embarrassment age and Dancing with the Stars is a show that the general population watches. Doesn’t she care that she might humiliate her kids by flashing her old, beat up goodies on prime time television? I guess celebs aren’t the kind of people to put their kids before their egos and publicity.

    Every day I read Celebitchy I am able to thank God, and myself, for being a loser that people couldn’t care less about. Life is good indeed.

  2. Marjalane says:

    Wow. Pam’s looking pretty rugged without make-up. Ring lights or not, she looked all of her age on DWTS.

  3. El Predicto says:

    A little known fact is that Tom Bergeron never wears underwear. And in fact both Bruno and Len aren’t even wearing pants! Why do you think they have that big panel in front of them?

  4. DoMaJoReMc says:

    @ El Predicto:

    So awesome!! LOL! 🙂

  5. Shelly says:

    I really dread next week when they have to dance to a “story”. Her Marilyn Monroe antics made me want to throw something at my TV last week. I’m sure she is hoping for a wardrode malfunction just to show off her goodies but that might cause me nightmares for weeks. LOL She’s just nasty, vulgar, trashy, and washed UP.

  6. Green Is Good says:

    At least she’s discovered Bras. As to panties, who knows.

  7. Sumodo1 says:

    Trashy Trashenstein.

  8. Whatever says:

    She is really looking rough. Time to stop acting like she’s 18. There is nothing worse than an aging woman trying to act and dress like a young girl. She really should think of her sons and stop being such an embarassment.

  9. clare says:

    Pam, I commend you for not going the plastic surgery route and just asking for flattering lighting, but this is primetime television, not the Playboy channel, so wear your damn underwear!

  10. bellaluna says:

    Really? She’s only 42? She looks much older. If she doesn’t want to wear chones on her own time, that’s fine, I guess. But on a national TV show her sons’ friends can watch, she needs to don the chones, for her their sake, at the very least.

  11. Sarah says:

    @Leek — what a great point! I couldn’t agree more.

  12. guilty pleasures says:

    @whatever, I get what you are saying, but my 18 year old and her friends don’t preen and pose and pout. They go to school, excel in sports, hang with their friends, etc. The idiotic posturing comes at a much later age, when your simple beauty doesn’t do the trick!
    Pammie, sweetie, you looked RIDICULOUS this week. Dial it down a few so you don’t seem like such a caricature. I think that’s why you were in the bottom two, def not in the bottom two in dance ability…
    just sayin’

  13. Annabelle says:

    Why do we go after Kate gosselin for being a diva, but not Pam, when Pam makes crazy demands? Also I agree with you guys, she should try to age with grace like Raquel welch. She could still look sexy dressed As a grown up n her sons wouldn’t have to get in fights at school defending her (like cb reported happening).

  14. Scarlet Vixen says:

    @Annabell: Because Kate Gosselin is a talentless reality show fame whore and genuine bitch who’s completely willing to use her kids to further her own selfish pursuits while Pamela Anderson generally keeps her children out of the media spotlight and actually had a (very successful) career at one point.

  15. Diva says:

    I don’t watch the show, the only time I’ve seen either Pam or Kate dance were on clips online, but it looks to me like Pam has talent in the dancing department… unfortunately, it looks more like the dancing from an 80’s buttrock video than ballroom.

    Kate…. well, she just can’t.

  17. The Bobster says:

    Anyone who has seen the Tommy Lee video does not want to see that goose-pimply vulva again.

  18. nanster says:

    Yuck – that is one sight I never, ever want to see. I don’t think I’d ever recover.

  19. nAynAy says:

    She looks pretty FUGLY without make-up. I didn’t even think she owned any panties.

  20. jane says:

    She lives in the same general area as I do & I see her around several times a year. She looks much older, and just plain ragged, than these pix show, in real life. I never cease to be amazed at the power of lighting and makeup. Becuz of where I live and my job, I see celebs all the time. Most of them are much shorter than you would think (except sports stars, who are much taller!) and 99% of them look ten years older.

  21. jane says:

    I should also mention that she is always very friendly to everyone around her. Have never seen or heard of her being snotty or diva-ish.

  22. EMV says:

    she looks so used and haggard. This is what a life time of fake tans and drugs will do to someone.

  23. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:

    OMG! People on here actually defend Pam Anderson? She’s a nasty piece of white trash, but whatever floats your boats.

  24. Dhavy says:

    That’s how Lilo will look in 10 yrs -dye her hair blonde and give her some double Ds and voila!

    Seriously, I’m shocked she’s only 42, she should really dress her age. I know she doesn’t know how to and she will probably die in a spandex mini dress at the age of 90 but for the love of God, please have mercy on our eyes!

    She’s only 1 year older than Aniston (who I think is fugly) and she looks way better than Pam

  25. DrM says:

    Girlfriend is looking rough…

  26. CeeCee12 says:

    Yuck! She is gross warmed over.

  27. canadianchick says:

    @bobster-ewww geez now I have to bleach my brain after that mental picture, lol *grabbing Javex bottle*

  28. Caz says:

    She has always reminded me of a used up porn star. Her poor kids will write a book about her one day when they are recovering from their mental issues.

  29. scout says:

    I do not watch this show but know many who do…and I have herad that it is a family event to watch it together… well, used to be – it used to be tasteful and fun I have heard….now the producers who someone involved have obviously lowered the bar so very low and turned it into “Dancing with the Sluts – NO
    Talent Requuired.” This dance should not have been allowed on prime time mainstream television. Belive me, I am no prude, but there is a time and place for thing. Maybe Pamela Anderson doesn’t care what her kids see – including their mother looking like a trashy slut – but most conscientious parents do.

  30. kiki says:

    Is the dress fluoro pink or is it just the lights have to hand it to her, she is brave or deluded with no mirror to dare to wear such a dress after 25 even young women would have to think twice about going on T.V dressed like her.

  31. Mirror says:

    Hmm. Honestly, she doesn’t look any worse than any other 42-year-old, fair-complected woman who’s spent a lot of time in the sun, if you ask me. Sure, she has the fake tits and the porn-star posing vocabulary and the trashy taste in clothes, but basically, she’s just a sluttier and not-quite-as-smart Dolly Parton. I don’t see how she looks “scary”. I think she basically looks like a very real, if tacky, woman. With fake tits. La Aniston is the one who looks like she has somehow had herself cryogenically preserved or bathed in the blood of virgins or something.

    What is it they say about the point of life not being to arrive at the finish line perfectly preserved, but rather to skid to a halt waving a cigarette in one hand and a drink in the other whilst whooping and hollering about what a hell of a ride it was? If Pam is having fun, why should she look impossibly young and perfect at 42 after living the wild life she’s lived?

  32. really says:

    she did a WONDERFUL JOB!

  33. John Doe says:

    Man she’s just disgusting.

    I mean completely, utterly disgusting.

    I imagine the makeup crew must wear gloves when they touch her. She must smell like tuna and look pretty diseased up close.

  34. ViktoryGin says:

    @ Mirror,

    Interesting assertion, but I don’t know if Pam is having fun. When you’ve built your career on something as ephemeral as your looks, the quality of your life begins to fade with them if you haven’t figured out how to fill the void.

    Nothing is more pathetic than an ageing woman pimping herself on national TV like people still want to see her stuff in order to salvage what’s left of her moribund career. One hopes that at 42, you’ve built a better foundation for yourself and you can age with some dignity. Yes, Jennifer Aniston looks like she’s been reanimated. She’s also not on DWTS hoping for some relevance when she bends just so and camera flashes her tw*t.

  35. Terri Wright says:

    I saw the Tommy Lee video and Bobster you are right!!!! Yuck! that crazy bitch cant accept the aging process. Instead she bleaches out her hair, use heavy black make-up on her eyes and frosted lipstick which is the basis for the fashion sense of the early 60’s. That is why those trends should die out they are ugly. What kills me about her too is how she hangs on that partner Damian. She rolls her head on him and gets right in his face to kiss him. She wants her rightful place in the tabloids and will do anything to get it. Between her and Tommy Lee those kids dont stand a chance.

  36. rickydoo says:

    Oh take it easy on Pamela – she’s just trying to work and pay the bills. Everyone’s howling about how rough she looks but I’ll bet most of you aren’t any box of chocolates either. Except for her sponsorship of PETA, (which I believe is misguided), and a marriage to Tommy Lee, (ditto), she’s just a downhome Canadian girl who got lucky on the jumbotron at a football game and now has to exploit the limelight to remain solvent. If you want to condemn someone why not pick one out of the endless supply of genuine sluts and dope addled celebs the Hollywood machine is producing 24/7? Actually she ain’t half bad for 42

  37. Damnpam says:

    Hey give her a break if she doesn’t want to wear panties then so be it.
