image host

A Spanish villa-style home built for Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee and actress Pamela Anderson and later owned by Boys Don’t Cry frontman Nick Richards is back on the market in Malibu for $3.475 million.

The home’s latest appearance on the Multiple Listing Service is far from its first. The estate has been shopped on and off since Richards sold the property in 2015 for $2.2 million.

The 1991-built home was described in listing details as in need of renovations when Richards sold it, but has since been restored anew with 7,462 square feet of bright living spaces and modern comforts.

Beyond the front door is a two-story rotunda entry with Spanish tile floors under a wood-beamed ceiling. A dual-sided fireplace anchors the space, while an ornate wrought-iron staircase rises adjacent. Living spaces include a step-down billiards room with a wet bar, a wine cellar and a family room.

The master suite is complete with a dual-sided fireplace and spa-like bathroom for a total of six bedrooms and six bathrooms.

Outside, the 2.3-acre property centers on a lagoon-style swimming pool and spa with waterfalls. Lush landscaping surrounds multiple stone patios, a koi pond and a grill to complete the grounds.

Sigi Ulbrich and Pam Moran of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties and Melissa Echeverria of Keller Williams Realty share the listing.

Pamela Anderson Fronts GCDS Spring Ad Campaign

The bombshell is back.

“Baywatch” and Pamela Anderson running on the beach in that staple red swimsuit helped define Nineties aesthetics — and now contemporary streetwear brand GCDS has tapped the blonde actress to front its spring campaign.

The model and actress turned activist will be attending a party in Milan on Feb. 22 planned by GCDS founder and designer Giuliano Calza to unveil the images and a fashion movie.

“It’s a cliché, the supersexy American — she had to be an outsider among a community of outsiders,” said the designer describing how the campaign was conceived.

Director and photographer Nadia Lee Cohen shot the campaign in the desert outside Los Angeles. The images portray Anderson among a group of vicious and weird characters, inspired by the “white trash” communities in the U.S. “We wanted to give the [spring 2018] collection a different angle, we decided to bring it to a disturbing place, among a community of outsiders” Calza mused.

The models’ extreme looks with bleached eyebrows, long nails and receding hairlines, contrast with Anderson’s beauty. According to Lee Cohen, the fashion movie “portrays an incredible sense of freedom, these inhabitants are free, they have no inhibitions about how they want to express themselves.”

The movie flanking the campaign will see Anderson die on screen, eventually murdered by the matriarch of the community. “Having Pamela dying [on screen], it’s the icon dying,” explained Calza, recalling how the brand’s whole aesthetic has always had a Nineties vibe.

“In such a delicate and difficult period, our message is that violence should stay in movies, it’s a way to exorcise it, to exorcise our fears,” the designer explained. The aim is — by contrast — to celebrate diversity and acceptance, to show “a grotesque place where everyone is fabulous in their own way,” he insisted.

American rapper Brooke Candy and model Caroline Vreeland also star in the campaign.

To celebrate its debut, a party will be held at a Milanese palazzo at 8, Via Passione, here. Inside the venue a museum-like display of objects, outfits and memorabilia used for the shoot will invite interactivity. These include Anderson’s shoes, wigs and life-size images of the campaign printed on canvas. “We wanted to re-create a sort of ‘crime scene’,” joked Calza.

The campaign is slated to appear on international publications on Feb. 22.

Pamela Anderson now permanent Marseille resident

The residents of Marseille have a new famous neighbour, as former model and actress Pamela Anderson and her footballing partner are said to have moved in permanently.

Anderson, and her partner Adil Rami – defender in the Olympique de Marseille (OM) football team – are said to have moved in to an undisclosed house in the Corniche-Kennedy area of the city, near the Prado beaches; an area previously frequented by President Emmanuel Macron, comedian and presenter Laurent Ruquier, and singer Jean-Jacques Goldman.

The couple – who are thought to have met in July 2017 – have reportedly bought their Marseille home, after months of speculation over their relationship, and whether they had arrived in France permanently.

It is not known how often the actress – who is originally Canadian and now holds joint US and Canadian citizenship – will be in the city, but reports suggest it will be relatively frequently, given Rami’s long-term commitment to OM.

Although the house deal was reported as “secret”, with confidentiality clauses preventing much specific information from emerging, residents in the area said that the couple was now frequently seen out and about in the neighborhood.

“We see them in the area, and in certain restaurants,” said one resident, speaking to news source 20 Minutes. “Pamela doesn’t exactly hide.”

Residents appeared mainly interested, but not surprised, at the actress’s arrival.

In fact, this is not the first time that the actress has focused on France; late last year she told The Connexion how much she “loved” the country, and, as an animal rights advocate and member of animal welfare group PETA, was pleased to see “how far the animal rights movement” had come in the nation.

“Vogue Paris just launched a fur-free issue and, instead of cruelly-produced foie gras, people are eating vegan joie gras and croissants sans beurre!” she said.

The high-end reputation of the specific area in Marseille also appears – unsurprisingly – to have attracted the couple.

“There are some beautiful, luxurious residences around here, for sure,” said one local, referring to many of the larger houses in the hills, often surrounded by high walls and security cameras.

Most of them have stunning views towards the Mediterranean, and many also have private pools, with prices reaching into the millions of euros.

Also speaking to 20 Minutes, a local estate agent, Dominique Puccinelli of Cabinet Lieutaud, said: “The Roucas-Blanc-Corniche sector is a state within the state. It is Marseille, without being Marseille! Very close to the centre, but far from the bustle and the noise.

“This is the most sought-after area right now,” he added, explaining that the city was popular due to its coastline but also proximity to facilities such as the international airport.
