Pamela Anderson Felt 'Sick' Over Resurfaced Sex Tape Scandal -- Claps Back At Pam & Tommy In New Doc Trailer!

Pamela Anderson Felt ‘Sick’ Over Resurfaced Sex Tape – & Seemingly Claps Back At Pam & Tommy With New Doc!

Pamela Anderson is ready to share her story, in her own words!

On Tuesday, Netflix released a trailer for the Baywatch alum’s upcoming documentary, Pamela, a love story, and she is getting brutally honest about what it was like to relive the trauma of her and her ex-husband Tommy Lee‘s 1996 sex tape scandal. As Perezcious readers know, the Hulu series Pam & Tommy, which premiered in February 2022, put a major spotlight on the controversy all over again. So, while Pamela didn’t address why her sex tape had resurfaced in the new Netflix trailer, this seems like a good guess!

Explaining how the resurfaced video made her feel “sick” and that she “couldn’t sleep” as she dealt with the drama, the 55-year-old told cameras:

“I blocked that stolen tape out of my life in order to survive, and now that it’s all coming up again, I feel sick.”

Oof. We cannot imagine how difficult that must have been! On why she’s willing to open up about her life — even the most difficult moments — these days, she added:

“I want to take control of the narrative for the first time.”

As mentioned, when Hulu released the Lily James and Sebastian Stan-led project, sources revealed Pamela would “never” watch anything to do with the series. One insider told Entertainment Weekly:

“I do know she’ll never, never watch this. Not even years from now. Not even the trailer.”

It was interesting timing for Pam & Tommy to hit the streamer since just one month later, Netflix announced the former Playboy playmate had a doc in the works (and it had been in production for several years). The film was described as a chance for “the pop culture icon [to set] the record straight as she looks back on her professional path and her personal journey.” Attached was a letter from Anderson herself, who said:

“My life, a thousand imperfections, a million misperceptions … I can only surprise you — not a victim, but a survivor and alive to tell the real story.”

Seems like she’s going to be doing just that!

A quick look at the teaser shows she’s going to be delving into a ton of topics — not just the NSFW ones! This includes her Broadway debut in Chicago. But, naturally, a lot of time will be spent discussing the sex tape scandal and the impact it had on her life. At one point during the video, she shared:

“I didn’t feel like I had a lot of respect. I had to make a career out of the pieces left, but I’m not the damsel in distress. I put myself in crazy situations and survived them.”

The model later mused:

“Why can’t we be the heroes of our own life story?”

She jokingly concluded:

“Why don’t we just do all the interviews naked? There’s no mystery here.”

LOLz! At least she can laugh about it now. Take a look at the trailer and get ready to stream it on January 31!
