Former “Baywatch” star Pamela Anderson is not letting go of her claim that comedian and actor Tim Allen once flashed her on the set of “Home Improvement” — a claim that he has flatly denied.
Anderson defended Allen on Thursday in a new statement provided to entertainment site Variety, saying that as a comedian it was Allen’s job to cross lines and push things to the limit.
“Tim is a comedian, it’s his job to cross the line. I’m sure he had no bad intentions. Times have changed, though. I doubt anyone would try that post #MeToo. It’s a new world,” Anderson told Variety via text.
Anderson dropped the bombshell claim in her upcoming memoir, “Love, Pamela” — which is due out on January 31 — and she said that Allen had exposed himself to her on her first day on the “Home Improvement” set. She asserted that he had seen her nude photos in Playboy magazine, and flashing her was an awkward attempt to — as she explained it — level the playing field.
“He opened his robe and flashed me quickly — completely naked underneath. He said it was only fair, because he had seen me naked. Now we’re even,” she wrote in the memoir, adding, “I laughed uncomfortably.”
Allen issued a statement unequivocally denying that the incident ever happened, saying, “No, it never happened. I would never do such a thing.”
Another of Anderson’s bombshell claims — this one from her upcoming Netflix documentary “Pamela: A Love Story” — has earned her a rebuttal from “Rocky” actor Sylvester Stallone.
In the doc, also due out on January 31, Anderson claimed that Stallone propositioned her — offering her a condo and a Porsche if she would commit to being his “Number one girl.”
“He offered me a condo and a Porsche to be his ‘number one girl.’ And I was like, ‘Does that mean there’s No. 2? Uh-uh,’” Anderson said. “He goes, ‘That’s the best offer you’re gonna get, honey. You’re in Hollywood now.’”
Anderson insisted that she immediately turned the offer down, saying that she didn’t want to settle for anything less than being in love — but Stallone released a statement via a spokesperson saying that he never made her any such offer.
“The statement from Pamela Anderson attributed to my client is false and fabricated. Mr. Stallone confirms that he never made any portion of that statement,” the statement read.
