BACKGROUND: Has anyone ever run across the beach in slow motion while holding one of those orange floaty things better than Pamela Anderson? Now we get to see how she does after ditching the swimsuit for some sequins and heels.
Model, actress, mother, entrepreneur, philanthropist and activist, Pamela Anderson is a sex symbol who has appeared on more magazine covers than any other star of her generation. She was even named in the Guinness Book of World Records as the Internet’s “most downloaded” star.
After being introduced to TV audiences as the “Tool Time Girl” on the hit series Home Improvement, Pam went on to star in the global phenomenon, Baywatch. Her other TV work includes the hit series V.I.P. and her recent documentary series Pam: Girl on the Loose. On the big screen, Pam starred in Barb Wire and Borat, in which she played herself and the object of Borat’s affections.
Pam’s current projects include her role as the “face” of the current campaign for the work of legendary designer Vivienne Westwood, and her partnership with her friend, designer Richie Rich, on the A*Muse brand -- a line of clothing inspired by Pam and created by Richie.
Pam recently launched her own fragrance “Malibu by Pamela Anderson” (along with other beauty-related products); all now available in drug stores worldwide. She also continues her extensive charity work in many areas, among which PETA remains her first love.
Dancing with the Stars just got a whole lot sexier now that Pamela Anderson is taking to the floor. Wonder if she’ll do any of her dances in slow motion. Nah.
