Pamela Anderson, 54, is getting ready to speak her truth in a new Netlix documentary about her life. The streaming network announced the news in a tweet on March 2, just one month after Hulu’s premiere of Pam & Tommy, the series centered on her and her ex-husband Tommy Lee‘s sex tape scandal, which erupted in 1995.
Pamela’s Netflix doc should be quite a contrast from Pam & Tommy, which she had no involvement in. Although Lily James has gotten praise for her role as the bombshell, Pamela has yet to publicly comment on whether not she’s watched the series and what she thinks of it. Lily, herself, previously said she tried to reach out to her during the making of the show, but had no luck.
“I was really hopeful that she would be involved. I wish it had been different,” Lily told Net-a-Porter’s Porter in Jan. about not hearing back. “My sole intention was to take care of the story and to play Pamela authentically.”
That same month, a source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife that Pamela wasn’t a fan of the creation of the series. “Pamela is not a fan of this at all and wanted nothing to do with the project,” the insider said, before referencing how her and Tommy’s sex tape was stolen. “When she learned that this would be covering the burglary, she was absolutely mortified because that entire episode is something that was very hard for her to deal with when it happened. She said that she is not going to watch Pam & Tommy and she does not want her kids to watch it either. She didn’t want money from this – she didn’t want it to be made in the first place and she is not going to respond to it.”
Netflix has yet to share a release date for Pamela’s upcoming documentary.
