Pamela Anderson Says She Hopes to Get Married for a Sixth Time: ‘I Still Have a Lot of Life Left’

Pamela Anderson has been through six marriages, but she’s still open to tying the knot again one day.

During 55-year-old Anderson’s appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday, host Jimmy Kimmel asked the actress and model whether she may get married again as she promoted her new memoir Love, Pamela and Netflix documentary.

“God, what a crazy question,” Anderson told the host. “I don’t know, I hope so.”

“I hope so. I don’t know,” the Baywatch alum said when Kimmel, also 55, repeated the question. “I still have a lot of life left.”

The late night host then jokingly asked Anderson whether she has met MyPillow’s Mike Lindell, who also appeared on the show Tuesday from inside of an arcade-style claw machine to speak with Kimmel.

“I don’t even know who that is,” Anderson said of Lindell.

Anderson was first married to Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee in 1995. She shares two sons, Brandon, 26, and Dylan, 25, with ex Lee, 60. She also went on to marry Kid Rock, Rick Salomon (they wed twice but one of the marriages was annulled) and her bodyguard Dan Hayhurst. In 2020, she married film producer Jon Peters for a total of 12 days, though the union was never official since they didn’t file the paperwork.

In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Anderson recalled that her short-lived marriage to Hayhurst — they broke up less than one year after their Christmas Eve 2020 wedding — “ended up being a disaster.”

After the rocky marriage, Anderson told the outlet that she now feels content without needing to always have a partner in her life.

“I’ve learned to try and do this without a life preserver, without having anyone around me to console me. I have to console myself,” she told Vanity Fair. “That’s been the hardest part of the journey — to go, I’m okay on my own … with my dogs. I need my dogs. I can’t be that alone.”

“I had this wild, bumpy life and met a lot of interesting people along the way and had a lot of interesting love affairs. But I feel like my life is more romantic now than ever,” she continued.

“I have dinner for one or with my dogs. I’m the same person with or without somebody,” Anderson added. “Rose petals in the bathtub, making my own rose oils, making my own candles. I’m kind of crafty all of a sudden.”

Anderson’s memoir Love, Pamela and her Netflix documentary Pamela, a Love Story, are both out now.

Pamela Anderson: Tommy Lee’s current wife will find my memoir ‘annoying’

Pamela Anderson understands if her ex-husband Tommy Lee’s current wife, Brittany Furlan, isn’t too fond of her newly released memoir.

“I’m sure it’s going to be annoying to his wife. I’d be annoyed,” the former Playboy Playmate, 55, admitted to WSJ. Magazine about “Love, Pamela,” which hit bookstores Tuesday alongside the outlet’s interview.

Anderson writes in her book that she knew very little about the Mötley Crüe drummer — including his last name and where he lived — when they eloped in Mexico in 1995.

Although they’d only known each other for a few days when they said “I do,” the “Baywatch” star remembers being “genuinely happy” and “lost in a sea of love.”

But according to Anderson, the honeymoon phase faded quickly. She goes on to describe a tumultuous marriage marked by anger, jealousy, physical abuse, an arrest, jail time, substance abuse, a suicide attempt, family feuds, lawsuits and a stolen sex tape.

Amid the chaos, the pair welcomed two sons — Brandon in 1996 and Dylan in 1997 — before divorcing in 1998.

The model-actress explains that her split from the musician was “the hardest, lowest, most difficult point of [her] life,” but she “had to protect [her] babies.”

Despite going on to have several more marriages, including one to Kid Rock, Anderson says her relationship with Lee “may have been the only time [she] was ever truly in love.”

As for the 60-year-old rocker, he married Furlan — a social media personality 24 years his junior — on Valentine’s Day 2019.

The former Vine star, 36, has neither publicly commented on Anderson’s memoir nor responded to Page Six’s inquiry.

The “Home Improvement” alum said in her WSJ. Magazine profile that Lee has not read her book.

‘Pamela, a love story’ works to help Pamela Anderson reclaim her narrative

The word “Intimate” is frequently used when describing celebrity documentaries, but it certainly applies to “Pamela, a love story,” which at one point shows Pamela Anderson lounging in the bathtub as portions of her diaries are read as voiceover. The result is a humanizing look at a woman often reduced to cartoon caricature, while occasionally feeling too conspicuously like a licensed product.

Produced by, among others, Anderson’s son Brandon Thomas Lee, director Ryan White (whose biographical documentaries include “Ask Dr. Ruth” and “Serena”) had access not only to her diaries but a collection of home movies – including, yes, the one stolen and posted for the world to see, of Anderson having sex with her then-husband, drummer Tommy Lee.

Anderson, now 55, speaks at length of that interlude, the invasiveness of having private material shown and exploited in that fashion, and what she clearly sees as a reopening of those wounds with Hulu’s limited series “Pam & Tommy,” which dramatized those events.

Anderson’s account actually does little to detract from that Emmy-nominated production, which was quite sympathetic in portraying the hurt she felt and the way the media treated her. Indeed, the clips presented here of late-night comics cashing in on Anderson as a punchline, or interviewers Matt Lauer and Larry King asking her about her breasts, do as much to endorse the Hulu version as undermine it.

“Pamela” makes clear that Anderson is letting her guard down right from the outset, as she appears makeup-free, hanging out in the small British Columbia town where she grew up, before getting discovered at a football game (fans “oohed” when she appeared on the scoreboard camera) launched her as a model and into the pages of Playboy.

As Anderson tells it, during that time she reclaimed her sexuality, having experienced abuse on more than one occasion as a child.

International stardom on “Baywatch” followed, and it’s amusing to hear Anderson reminisce not only about all the celebrities she dated during that stretch, but the whole “Running on the beach in slow motion” imagery. (There’s no mention of “Home Improvement,” or Anderson’s recent allegations in her memoir of being flashed by its star, Tim Allen, which the comic has denied.)

The indignities of that “blond bombshell” status are nicely documented here. Ditto for the intrusions of the paparazzi, who dogged her particularly after the whirlwind romance with Lee.

The feeding frenzy surrounding the sex tape “solidified the cartoon image” of her, Anderson recalls, adding, “I knew at that point my career was over.”

While “Pamela” handles all of that quite well, too much of the rest of it plays like the Hallmark Card version of Anderson’s story, from the cloying, saccharine music to the interviews with her sons, whose protectiveness toward their mother is admirable but not especially enlightening.

The last part of the documentary also feels a bit scattered, venturing into areas like Anderson’s animal-rights activism through PETA, her advocacy for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and, finally, her Broadway debut in “Chicago.”

At its best, “Pamela, a love story” strips away what in hindsight looks like misogynistic media coverage – obsessed with her looks and relationships – to consider the person behind all of that, while proving a little too determined and pliable in the goal of helping Anderson assert ownership over her narrative.

At those moments, “Pamela” might work as a love story, but it fares a little less well as a documentary.

“Pamela, a love story” premieres January 31 on Netflix.
