Pamela Denise Anderson was born on July 1, 1967. She is a Canadian-American actress and model from British Columbia. She became famous for her appearances in Playboy magazine and also for her work on the television series “Baywatch,” “Home Improvement,” and “V.I.P.”
She was born in Ladysmith, British Columbia. Her father, Barry worked as a furnace repairman, and her mother, Carol Anderson, was a waitress. Pam claimed she suffered se*ual abuse as a child, which was published in 2014. Apparently, she was molested by a female babysitter from ages 6 to 10. In addition, she was raped by a 25-year old man when she was 12, and gang-raped by her boyfriend and six of his friends when she was 14. Pamela attended Highland Secondary School in Comox, British Columbia. During that time, she played volleyball. When she graduated, she moved to Vancouver and worked as a fitness instructor.
She was first spotted wearing a tight-fitting Labatt’s Beer T-shirt during a football match. Her picture was shown on the stadium’s huge video screen. After that, she was offered to model for the brewery’s commercials, and she accepted it. Then, she moved to Los Angeles to pursue her modeling career in 1989. Anderson got her first role in television series ‘Baywatch’ in 1992. It is a drama series that follows the lives of the lifeguards who patrol beaches of Los Angeles Country, California. Pam was with ‘Baywatch’ till 1998. She got her first film role in 1994, in the film called ‘Raw Justice.’ Even though she had only six lines, she got enough attention. Also, in 2008, she starred in ‘Pam: Girl on the Loose.’ It is a documentary series based on her life as a model, actress, and activist. However, it mostly received negative reviews.
When Pam’s marriage with Jon Peters ended after just 12 days, he said that part of the reasons why their relationship ended was because she had to clear $200,000 of debt. However, she claims that it is entirely false.
In 2000, Anderson paid $1.8 million for a home in Malibu. She upgraded and renovated it, and then she listed it in March 2013 for $7.75 million. However, she didn’t find the buyer, so she listed the house for rent for as much as $50,000 per month. She still owns the home, and if it were brought back to the market, it would probably be worth around $8-9 million.
In 1995, Anderson got married to a drummer Mötley Crüe, after knowing him for only four days. Her mother didn’t know about it, she read about it from People magazine. They have two sons together, Brandon Thomas, and Dylan Jagger. They split up in 1998. After her divorce, she became engaged to the model Marcus Schenkenberg, but they broke up in 2001. Then, she became engaged to Kid Rock, but that relationship ended as well. In 2007, she got married to the producer Rick Salomon. They separated in 2008. In 2023, she was dating a producer Jon Peters, but soon they split up.
