Pamela Denise Anderson was born at 4:08am, July 1, 1967 in Ladysmith,
British Columbia, Canada. 1967 was Canada's centennial year and Pamela
was the first baby born this day in all of Canada earning her the title
"The Centennial Baby". This earned her an article in the local
newspaper, the Ladysmith-Chemainus Chronicle. The Anderson's recieved cash
prizes and awards for having the first baby born in Canada on this day,
Canada's 100th Birthday. "That's where it all started" says Pamela.
Shortly after that, her parents Barry, a furnace repairman and Carol, a
waitress, moved to Comox, British Columbia where they purchased a large
six bedroom house on Douglas Street. Comox is about 200 kilometers
north of Vancouver, British Columbia and it was there one day in a library
that Pamela's modeling career would start. Pamela was sitting listening
to a story with about one hundred other children when a photographer
captured a picture of her that won the hearts of all that saw viewed it.
It was quickly copyrighted and placed in all the libraries in British Columbia.
Pamela's teen years weren't anything out of the ordinary, she had
braces and she was small chested. She excelled in vitually every sport she
played, earning the nick-name "Rubber-Band" for her flexability. Pat
Lewis, one of Pamela's school coaches was quoted as saying "She was quite
cute and competitive, but there was noting special about her." Her
favorite sport was Volleyball and wasn't overly interesd in movies,
television or music the way other girls her age were at that time in their
lives althought she did love to play the saxophone every chance she got.
She played sax in the school band and after school with friends when the
opportunity presented itself. Pamela's Mother Carol remembers that "If
someone did better than Pamela, she'd do anything to top them. She was
always very determined.". Upon graduating from Highland Secondary
School in 1985 her yearbook entry stated that her aspiration in life was "To be a California Beach Bum". In 1988, Pamela moved to Vancouver to get a taste of the big city and
get on with her life. She was working as a fitness instructor when her
direction in life changed. It was the summer of 1989 when close friends
of Pamela invited her to go to a Canadian Football League (CFL) game
with them. One of her friends was a representitive for Labatt's beer
breweries. The game was between the British Columbia Lions and the Toronto
Argonauts in B.C. Place and at one of the stopages in play, the
cameraman was roaming the crowd looking for someone to put up on the big
screen for all to see. He found Pamela and when he put her bright smiling
face up on the screen, the place erupted! Labatt's noticed the response
this woman was getting and the fact that she was wearing a Labatt's
shirt her friend had given her cemented the deal. She began modeling for
Labatt's in their then curren promotion for the "Blue Zone". As the "Blue
Girl", Pamela's posters were plastered all over walls in bars and resturants Canada wide.
A gentleman by the name of Ken Honey, a freelance photographer based
out of Vancouver took a few pictures of Pamela and after convincing
Pamela, he sent them into Playboy on Pamela's behalf. Playboy liked what
they saw and in October of 1989, Pamela moved to Los Angeles, California
to do a cover for the October (1989) issue of Playboy. The first time
Pamela ever stepped in front of a motion picture camera was Febuary 1990
at Playboy where she was preparing for an early sequence test for her upcoming pictorial.
The Playboy spread generated activity on Pamela's career agenda. She
had small parts on shows such as Fox's "Married with Children" and in
1991, she got the part of "Lisa", the "Tool-Time-Girl" on ABC Televison's
"Home Improvment". Luck wasn't finished playing a part in Pamela's life
though, David Hasslehoff was a fan of the show and when he saw Pamela
in the role of "Lisa", he knew he'd found his new lifeguard for his
then-new series "Baywatch". C.J. Parker (Pamela's character name on
Baywatch) was born. Pamela immediately jumped at the idea of Baywatch and she
says that the character of C.J. and herself are very simular. Her
grandfather Herman, a immigrant from Finland always taught Pamela to believe
in "New Age Thinking", crystals, meditation and dream interpretation.
C.J., according to Baywatch, has the same views.
Pamela has starred in several other roles outside of Baywatch including
an uncredited role in the 1992 flop, "The Taking of Beverly Hills".
After that, she went on to star as "Felicity" in the thriller
"Snapdragon". This one is highly recommended if you're a Pam fanatic. In 1994, she
played the part of "Sarah" in the HBO movie "Raw Justice" with close
friend of the Lee's David Keith. Mickey Spillane's detective series,
"Mike Hammer" came calling later that year and Pamela found herself playing
the very beautiful "Velda". 1995 came and Pamela played a quirky
scupltor/artist in the TV movie, "The Evolution of Mr. E.", adapted from the
H.G. Wells book of the same name.
1995 held other surprises as well for Pamela, one of which was a
husband! On New Year's evening in 1994, Pamela was attending a party in New
York where she met Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee. He came right up to
her and licked her face! They talked off and on and after he begged her
several times for her phone number, she finally gave in and let him have
it. Tommy called Pamela over and over again for the next few weeks
trying to arrange a date and in the first week of Febuary 1995, he
succeeded only to be cancelled on at the last moment. He wasn't about to give
up on Pamela though, she'd been called away to Cancun, Mexico to do a
photo shoot for her sun-tan lotion line and Tommy, determined to win over
Pamela at any cost, followed her.
After four days of courting and endless parties, the two were married
on a beach. Pamela wearing a white bikini and Tommy wearing a set of
shorts. After returning to L.A., they had wedding rings tattooed on their
fingers. Pamela's says "Tommy's" and Tommy's says "Pamela's". The got
remarried for fun in silver space suits with friends there "just
Going against the advice of Nick Stevens, her personal manager, Pamela
accepted the role to play futuristic bounty hunter Barb Wire for Dark
Horse Comics and Gramercy Pictures (Polygram in the UK). He thought it
would be a tremendous mistake but Pamela thought otherwise and May 3rd,
1996, Barb Wire will open in 1500 theatres across the United States.
The soundtrack to Barb Wire features a song Tommy wrote called "Planet
Boom". If you like heavier misic, this CD is the one to buy!. It's
Unfortunatley, stardom has a price. While filming Barb Wire, Pamela and
Tommy suffered a miscarriage. They were both devistated but like Tommy
told Pamwatch, "Our little angel is up there in good hands." There
wasn't really anyone or anything to blame other than the fact that Pamela,
being the hard worker that she is was simply overworked. Stress played
it's roll on Pamela, she was filming Baywatch in the day and then after
10 hours in the Sun, she'd go to the set of Barb Wire and film some
more. I recall days when Pamela would be so tired, her emails would be no
more than four or five words. it's amazing she had strength to type at
October 15th 1995 was a great day around here at the offices of
Pamwatch. We recieved word before anyone else that Pamela was pregnant again.
Tommy and her were bouncing off the walls! If you can believe how
devoted this woman is to her fans, she emailed us using her portable Apple
Powerbook from her hospital bed. Reports came in Monday from the media
that Pamela tried to kill herself but it wasn't until Wednesday that
word slipped out that she was pregnant.
In December of 1995, The Lee's were invited to England to spend the
holidays by the U.K. newspaper "The Sun". Amazingly, they accepted the
invitation. What was amazing about it is that "The Sun" is one of the
worst "tabloid" type papers in the U.K. but Pamela and Tommy thought if
they gave them an exclusive interview, then maybe they'd leave them alone
for awhile. They were wrong. The paper printed the interview all
right.. but it'd been doctered up to make it look like all that was talked
about was sex! Leave it to the tabloids to have a perfect opportunity to
print the truth but rather than take that opportunity, they lie!
While in England, Pamela and Tommy travelled with their close friend
and personnal assistant, Jon Roberts. They had a blast, Pamela was buying
every fluffy hat she could find and the candles... ha! The candles are
another story. She got in trouble trying to make the Queen's Guard lose
their concentration. Tommy told us she was doing a good job until the
Police broke it up. December 27th 1995 was spent in Venice, Italy where
Tommy and Pamela renewed their wedding vows.
