Pamela Sue Anderson Has Had A Hard Week.
On March 15, a story started making the rounds on social media that the former Baywatch beauty had died. According to the bogus site, ABCNEWS-US.com, Anderson collapsed in a bathroom at her mansion and firefighters responded. The 50-year old former Playmate was transported to the medical center and admitted with complications linked to Hepatitis C.
The impostor site listed Anderson’s alleged death at 10:04 am March 12.
Enough naive readers spotted the story and fell for it. The lie gained traction and was seen and shared by several million before Snopes, a fact-checking site, stepped in and calmed the masses.
Ex-Hubby Knocked Out
On Tuesday, Anderson was in Las Vegas to make her first public appearance as word got out of a family fight. Her 21-year-old offspring, Brandon, hit his father — Anderson’s ex — during a disagreement and knocked the ripened rocker — Tommy Lee — out.
Lee, Motley Crue‘s 55-year-old former drummer, went on social media and posted a selfie showing a busted and bloody lip. “My heart is shattered,” wrote Lee. “You give your kids everything, and they still turn against you. Great job, Brandon!”
Brandon claimed he gave the drunken Lee his fat lip in self-defense. “I’m devastated at the events over the past few days,” Brandon told People Magazine. “It all was a result of my father’s alcoholism.”
Backing her son, Pamela blogged that her son hit her ex “in the nose for all of us who he has hurt.” Lee was imprisoned for felony spousal abuse in 1998. Pamela pointed out that Tommy Lee “has been envious of his sons’ natural ability and beauty since they were born. He is the walking meaning of narcissist and a sociopath.”
In May 1998, the rocker was sentenced to six months in jail and warned any violation of probation on his release would send him to state prison for three years.
In addition to his time behind bars for assault and battery, Lee had to ante up more than $6,000 which went to an abused women’s residence, a victim indemnification program and a domestic violence trust.
As for getting decked by his son, the drummer intends to follow through with authorities and see his first-born prosecuted.
WikiLeaks, Julian Assange & Harvey Weinstein
On Friday Anderson attempted to shoot down rumors about her relationship with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. In the same interview, Anderson doubled down on earlier remarks where she said Weinstein’s victims “knew what they were getting into.”
As for Assange, the bombshell said, “I wouldn’t say it’s romantic, but we are very close.” During the coffee klatch with Megyn Kelly Anderson confirmed she met Assange through fashion designer Vivienne Westwood during a visit to Ecuador’s Embassy in London where Assange has been hanging out for since August 16, 2012, when several American politicians called for his assassination.
“I first became interested in learning how to increase my effectiveness as an activist,” she told Kelly during the interview which is scheduled to air on Kelly’s daytime talk show — “Megyn Kelly Today.” “How could I improve my foundation? What does he think? Could we brainstorm something?”
Assange has been enjoying the solitude as a political refugee after being accused in 2010 of sexual assault and rape in Sweden. Assange denied the accusations, and in May 2017, Swedish prosecutors ended the investigation. Assange was not charged.
“If he [Assange] were to leave the Embassy he would be arrested,” Anderson said. “He’s an important person to me.”
Anderson told Kelly during the early part of the interview that Harvey Weinstein‘s accusers had a choice to go or not to a hotel room — alone — with the Hollywood powerhouse. “It was commonly known that some producers in Hollywood should be avoided,” Anderson said.
While she refused to render an apology for her remarks later when asked by TMZ, she did make a point to say the disgraced director is a ‘sexist pig and a bully.’
Turning her nose up at Weinstein’s victims, Anderson said it was fat-headed for actresses to assume the meetings were safe as they were set up by agents — a claim made by Gwyneth Paltrow.
Anderson claimed she had long learned how to avoid being in the situation described by Weinstein’s accusers. “I learned to just not put myself in those positions,” Anderson said.
The former Playmate told Kelly she is in a better place since getting out of her abusive relationship with Tommy Lee. “It’s the hardest thing in the world. You’re so in love with that person.”
“There’s a cycle of abuse. If you go back into the same relationship, you’re saying it’s alright for that person to behave that way. Instead, it just gets worse and worse.”
