Pamela Anderson, the famous American actress is set to release her Netflix docuseries, on January 31, Tuesday. The much-awaited project, which has been titled Pamela, a love story, is premiering on the OTT platform on the same day her memoir Love, Pamela releases.
The docuseries will show the celebrated star taking the audience through her turbulent personal life. In the series, Pamela Anderson will be seen narrating several dark phases of her life, from experiencing sexual abuse in childhood to her leaked sex tape.
For the unversed, a VHS tape of Pamela Anderson and her ex-husband, drummer Tommy Lee, which was recorded during their honeymoon days in a yacht was leaked in the media. It was the first-ever celebrity sex tape to go viral, and Anderson faced a lot of media and public attacks following the same. According to Rolling Stone, the actress opened up about the leaked sex tape and revealed how it affected her life and career, in the upcoming Netflix series.
Pamela Anderson, who recalled that unfortunate episode in her life, said: "After that, it just felt like that solidified the cartoon image, too. You become a caricature,” she shares in the film. “I think that was the deterioration of whatever image I had… I knew at that point that my career was over."
According to Pamela Anderson, the former couple's sex tape was leaked by an unknown person, who stole Tommy Lee's gun safe which had the size of a 'refrigerator'. The musician's gun safe had his personal weapons, momentos, and a few private VHS tapes which were recorded during their honeymoon. "One day, we got something in the mail. It was wrapped in brown paper. Tommy opened it. It was a VHS tape. Tommy told me to go upstairs, and he watched it. I didn’t watch it — I’ve never watched it. Later, he came upstairs and said: This is going to be disturbing. This is a VHS tape of us having sex," the actress recalled.
