Pamela Anderson reveals she felt ‘sick’ when the Tommy Lee sex tape scandal made headlines again thanks to the miniseries Pam & Tommy

Pamela Anderson has revealed she felt ‘sick’ when her 1996 sex tape scandal with Tommy Lee reentered the public eye in recent years. 

The former Baywatch bombshell was the subject of a 2021 miniseries called Pam And Tommy starring Lily James and Sebastian Stan in the story of the tape.

Now in a trailer for her new Netflix documentary, she said: ‘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.’

The busty blonde is relaying her own perspective for Netflix in a documentary called Pamela, A Love Story.

‘I didn’t sleep last night at all,’ Pamela says early in the documentary trailer against clips of her warming herself by a bonfire. 

During the height of her fame in the 1990s, Pamela and Tommy, who were then married, became the center of the first major celebrity sex tape scandal.

A private video of them making love was stolen and then sold off by Rand Gauthier, played by Seth Rogen on Pam And Tommy.

The 2021 miniseries hit the headlines for its sensational, raunchy content, including one scene involving a large talking penis. 

An Entertainment Tonight source claimed that Pam And Tommy ‘has been very painful for Pamela Anderson and for anyone that loves her. It is shocking that this series is allowed to happen without her approval.’

The insider said Pamela ‘feels so violated to this day’ by the burglary of the sex tape and said the show ‘brings back a very painful time for her.’

Pamela’s friend Courtney Love blasted the show as ‘vile’ and ‘outrageous,’ writing on social media: ‘My heart goes out to Pammy further causing her complex trauma.’

She spared a few choice words for the leading lady of the show, adding: ‘And shame on Lily James whoever the f*** she is.’ 

Her upcoming documentary may be an attempt by Pamela to recapture control of her image after her portrayal in Pam And Tommy. 

She is seen confessing that she did not consider herself to have received ‘a lot of respect’ over the course of her career as a sex symbol.

A snatch of footage played in which Ruby Wax asked her: ‘Did you want to be a serious actress?’ and Pamela replied: ‘I am a serious actress!’ eliciting a laugh.

In another glimpse of her public image, she was briefly seen playing in her guest-role as the gorgeous bimbo Heather Biblow on The Nanny starring Fran Drescher.

‘I had to make a career out of the pieces left, but I’m not the damsel in distress,’ Pamela said in voiceover. ‘I put myself in crazy situations and survived them.’

Footage played of Pamela’s various professional ventures, including what appeared to be one of her practices for Celebrity Boxing.

She also subjected herself to a Comedy Central Roast and entered the cast of Chicago on Broadway, both of which gigs briefly appear in the trailer.

Pamela, who in recent years has been known for her friendship with Julian Assange, is also seen being interviewed by Jay Leno on late-night TV.

The much-wedded pinup, who has racked up six failed marriages over a span of five ex-husbands, also shed some light on her checkered love life.

The Netflix documentary is incidentally scheduled to bow the same day as her tell-all memoir Love, Pamela, published by Harper Collins and Dey Street Books.
