This Girl Was ‘Molested’ by Babysitter as a Child — Now This 90s Icon Lives Alone with 5 Dogs on Her Farm

Pamela Anderson, born on July 1, 1967, in Ladysmith, British Columbia, faced a traumatic childhood. At ages 4-8, she was molested by a female babysitter. “I hope you die!” she once told her abuser. Her parents’ volatile relationship added to her struggles, leading her to act out, like convincing the town her brother was missing.

Discovered as the “Blue Zone Girl” at a football game, Anderson’s career skyrocketed after a Playboy shoot and her role as CJ on “Baywatch.” Her marriage to Tommy Lee was tumultuous, marked by a stolen sex tape and his imprisonment for spousal abuse. They divorced in 1998, and Anderson later married Kid Rock, Rick Salomon (twice), and Dan Hayhurst, with her most recent marriage ending in 2021.

Now, Anderson lives alone with her five dogs in her coastal hometown, Ladysmith. She finds solace in gardening, pottery, and writing. “I live a more romantic life now that I’m alone,” she says. Anderson has embraced a more natural look since the passing of her makeup artist, Alexis Vogel. She describes her new beauty approach as “freeing, and fun, and a little rebellious too.”

Despite her tumultuous past, Anderson feels she is in a good place, enjoying her quiet life and occasional reflections on her storied journey.
