Pamela Anderson on Her Two Sons: ‘A Miracle Given Their Gene Pool’

When it came time to finally share her story, Pamela Anderson says it was her two sons, Brandon, 26, and Dylan, 25, who convinced her to do so. “They were the ones who encouraged me to tell my story,” she says of her two boys from her marriage to rocker Tommy Lee.

In her new memoir, Love, Pamela, excerpted exclusively in this week’s PEOPLE, and a new Netflix documentary, Pamela: a Love Story, both out Jan. 31, she candidly shares all they went through together, both the good and the bad.

“Brandon and Dylan are true miracles, considering their gene pool,” she writes. “They have been through so much, yet they are not full of holes.”

Anderson, 55, reveals the toll that the 1995 theft of her and Lee’s personal tapes (which were made into a sex tape and sold without their permission) took on their marriage and the relentless attention that came with it.

“We dealt with it the best way we knew how and some of it got crazy,” she says. “And Tommy and I, between the two of us, I don’t think we had the maturity level to really handle it all.”

After Lee was charged with spousal abuse in 1998, she filed for divorce.

Looking back, Anderson says, “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 maneuver. 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.”

In the months and years that followed, she focused on raising their boys. “They saved me,” she says. “I don’t want to put that on my kids but having children changed everything. I’ve loved every moment.”

Now that they’re grown, she marvels at their talents and tenacity. “Brandon is really creative and is this fiery kind of kid. Dylan is more introspective and more Zen. It’s a good team.”

In turn, her sons played a key role in her new documentary. “We didn’t want to make a talking heads film,” says Ryan White, director of Pamela, a Love Story, “so the only people we speak in the film are Pamela’s parents and Brandon and Dylan. The question of what’s it like to grow up as Pamela Anderson’s son fascinated me as a storyteller. It turns out she’s a damn good mother.”

Pamela Anderson Says Relationship with Tommy Lee May Have Been ‘Only Time I Was Ever Truly in Love’

In the early days of Pamela Anderson’s love affair with rocker Tommy Lee, the Baywatch star says, “We just wanted to have babies and be together forever.”

The actress and activist, 55, writes about both their tender and tumultuous moments, and her love for their two sons, Brandon, 26, and Dylan, 25, in her new memoir, Love, Pamela, excerpted exclusively in this week’s PEOPLE. It marks just one of the many chapters of her life explored in the book and in a new Netflix documentary, Pamela, a love story, both out January 31.

As she writes, looking back, “My relationship with Tommy may have been the only time I was ever truly in love.”

Their 1995 wedding on the beach in Cancun (she wore a bikini, he wore board shorts) led to countless headlines and paparazzi chases. At times, their life and love was over the top. “We had fun,” she writes, “and our rule was no rules.”

But the theft of their personal tapes from a safe in their garage, which were then made into a “sex tape” sold by others, increased the tabloid and paparazzi’s relentless pursuit.

“It ruined lives, starting with our relationship — and it’s unforgivable that people, still to this day, think they can profit from such a terrible experience, let alone a crime,” writes Anderson, who has never watched the stolen tape.

With their two young sons at home, the pressures and stress ultimately overwhelmed them, she writes. One night in 1998, she says Lee twisted her arm as she was holding seven month old Dylan, and Brandon played nearby. “Tommy ripped Brandon off me and threw me and Dylan into a wall,” she writes. Panicked, she called 911. Tommy was arrested and served six months in jail. And, as she writes, “Our hell began.”

Anderson filed for divorce; in the months and years that followed, she focused on caring for her sons and finding healing.

“The divorce from Tommy was the hardest, lowest, most difficult point of my life,” she writes in her memoir. “I was crushed. I still couldn’t believe that the person I loved the most was capable of what had happened that night. We were both devastated, but I had to protect my babies.”

Over two decades later, she and Lee “check in, every once in a while,” she says. “Tommy is the father of my kids and I’m forever grateful.”
