Pamela Anderson Claims In Memoir Tim Allen Flashed Her On Home Improvement Set When She Was 23
Tim Allen denied he did such a thing.
Pamela Anderson has alleged Tim Allen flashed her on the set of Home Improvement.
Anderson, 55, has claimed her co-star on the '90s sitcom showed her his penis in the hallway outside her dressing room and she "laughed uncomfortably".
In an excerpt of her upcoming memoir, Love, Pamela, published in Variety, Anderson wrote: “On the first day of filming, I walked out of my dressing room, and Tim was in the hallway in his robe. He opened his robe and flashed me quickly — completely naked underneath.”
She added: “He said it was only fair, because he had seen me naked. Now we’re even. I laughed uncomfortably.”
Anderson was 23 then, while Allen was 37.
However, Allen, now 69, has denied the flashing incident took place. He told the publication: “No, it never happened. I would never do such a thing.”
Elsewhere in the tell-all, Anderson admitted she was "saved" by her children.
The former Baywatch actress' sons, Brandon, 26, and Dylan, 25, were just toddlers when she filed for divorce from their father, rocker Tommy Lee, in 1998, and she admitted being a parent gave her something to focus on in the time that followed.
She said: "They saved me. I don't want to put that on my kids but having children changed everything. I've loved every moment...
"Brandon is really creative and is this fiery kind of kid. Dylan is more introspective and more Zen. It's a good team."
Anderson thinks her sons have grown up to be "true miracles".
She wrote: "Brandon and Dylan are true miracles, considering their gene pool. They have been through so much, yet they are not full of holes."
Anderson filed for divorce from the Motley Crue drummer after he was charged with spousal abuse and she thinks they "really let [their] kids down" with their relationship issues.
She reflected: "I think we really let our kids down. And that's something it's really hard for me to forgive myself about. We should have found a way through it. I couldn't accept any kind of violent manoeuver. It was my childhood fears coming out. I didn't want that for my kids and as much as I loved Tommy more than anything in the world, I loved my kids more."
The pair's relationship floundered after their personal videos — which were later made into an infamous sex tape and sold without their permission — were stolen and they were unable to deal with the attention the scandal brought.
Anderson, who claims to have never seen the tape, said: "We dealt with it the best way we knew how and some of it got crazy. And Tommy and I, between the two of us, I don't think we had the maturity level to really handle it all."
Anderson's memoir Love, Pamela and the accompanying Netflix documentary, Pamela: A Love Story, are set to be out on Jan 31.
