Pamela dishes the dirt with new doc, memoir


Pamela Anderson is revealing even more than she did in her iconic, high-cut “Baywatch” swimsuit.

In the new Netflix documentar­y “Pamela, A Love Story,” and her new memoir “Love, Pamela” — both out Jan. 31 — Anderson spills tea about her traumatic youth, various famous men and that time she found a crack pipe in the Christmas tree.

As a child, Anderson said that she was molested for several years by a female babysitter whom she attempted to murder. “I tried to kill her — tried to stab her in the heart with a candy cane pen,” she claims in the doc. Such efforts weren’t successful, but the woman still met an untimely end.

“I told her I wanted her to die, and she died in a car accident the next day,” says the former Playboy pinup. “I thought I’d killed her with my magical mind and I couldn’t tell anybody.” Anderson also tells of being raped by a 25-year-old neighbor when she was 12. “We played [backgammon] for a while until he said I looked like I needed a massage,” she recalls. “I felt like it was my fault.” One of the most scandalous reveals is Anderson’s assertion that Tim Allen exposed himself to her on the set of “Home Improvemen­t.”

“On the first day of filming, I walked out of my dressing room, and Tim was in the hallway in his robe. He opened his robe and flashed me quickly — completely naked underneath,” she writes. “He said it was only fair, because he had seen me naked [in Playboy]. Now we’re even. I laughed uncomforta­bly.”

Sly’s ‘No.1’ girl

Anderson was just 23 when started playing Lisa the Tool Girl on the popular family series. The budding actress was on the show for two seasons before leaving to take on the “Baywatch” role that would make her a household name.

In a statement to Variety, which published an excerpt from the memoir about the incident, Allen said it “never happened” and claimed “I would never do such a thing.”

Sylvester Stallone is also portrayed in a less than flattering light. Anderson alleges that he offered her a condo and a Porsche to be “his No. 1 girl.”

“I was like, ‘Does that mean there’s No. 2? Uh-uh,’ ” Anderson says in the documentar­y. “He goes ‘That’s the best offer you’re gonna get, honey. You’re in Hollywood now.’ ”

The pinup says she spurned his advances. A representa­tive for Stallone said that Anderson’s claims are “false and fabricated,” telling The Post that “Mr. Stallone confirms that he never made any portion of that statement.”

Profession­al poker player Rick Salomon, also disputed some of the documentar­y. Anderson claimed that when the two were married she once found a crack pipe in her Christmas tree that belonged to Salomon.

“Who else would have a crack pipe in the Christmas tree? It wasn’t me,” she says.

But, Salomon told The Post, “I smoked crack for 25 f - - king years, but the crack pipe in the Christmas tree was 1,000% not mine,” adding that he has been sober for 15 years.

Salomon and Anderson married in 2007 and had their union annulled after just two months. They wed again in 2014 and divorced the following year.

“When he got sober, and was sober for years, we decided to try it again,” the siren says in the film.

Anderson has been married six times, but she says her first husband, rocker Tommy Lee, “may have been the only time I was ever truly in love.”

They wed on the beach in 1995 and had two sons, Brandon, 26, and Dylan, 25. They split a few years later after a notorious sex tape and a domestic violence incident for which Lee served six months in jail.

Haunted by tape

“The divorce from Tommy was the hardest, lowest, most difficult point of my life,” she writes in her book. “I still couldn’t believe that the person I loved the most was capable of what had happened that night. We were both devastated, but I had to protect my babies.”

The couple’s sex tape was the subject of the recent Emmy-nominated Hulu series “Pam & Tommy,” starring Lily James and Sebastian Stan.

“It really gives me nightmares,” Anderson says of the production.

“I have no desire to watch it, I’m not going to watch it,” she continues. “Never watched the tape, I’m not going to watch this.”

But, the show did give her and Lee an opportunit­y to peacefully reconnect.

“I texted Tommy and said ‘How do you feel about everything?’ and he said, ‘Pam, just don’t let it hurt you as much as it did the first time,’ ” she says.

After Hulu and others told her story, Anderson says that she’s happy to finally be the one recounting the events of her life.

She says in the documentar­y, “I wanna take control of the narrative for the first time.”
