Pamela Anderson pushes for VEGAN meals to be served to Australian female prison inmates – to make them less violent

She’s the former Baywatch star who is a passionate animal rights activist.

And Pamela Anderson wants female felons in New South Wales to adopt a more karmic diet as they serve out their sentences.

The 50-year-old has written a letter, in her role as honorary director of PETA, to the NSW Corrective Services Commissioner Peter Severin to urge vegan meals be served in a bid to curb violence.

Pamela wrote that she was spurred into action after reading about a plan to offer yoga, tai chi and meditation to female inmates across the state.

‘I read about your plan to rehabilitate female inmates through mindfulness exercises and yoga and wanted to make a suggestion that could further help embrace nonviolence, switching to nutritious vegan meals in your correctional facilities,’ Pamela wrote.

She went on to argue that switching to a vegan diet would also have many healthcare benefits for the state.

‘Not only would providing vegan food honour one of the driving principles of yoga – ahimsa (doing no harm) – by sparing animals lives, it could also help improve the health of the women in your facilities while decreasing long-term healthcare costs,’ she added.

Using the case study of Arizona’s Maricopa County Jail, which switched to a meat free diet in 2015, Pamela wrote that she had witnessed first-hand the popularity of the program, as well as its economic benefits.

‘Maricopa County Jail switched to all-vegetarian food for its 8,000 inmates and reported a saving of US$273,000,’ she revealed.

‘In 2015, I went there with representatives of PETA US to serve lunch to the prisoners, who were impressed with the freshness and quality of the food.’

Daily Mail Australia has approached NSW Corrective Services Commissioner Peter Severin for comment.

Pamela has long been a staunch animal rights activist.

In 1999, she received PETA’s inaugural Linda McCartney Memorial Award for campaigning against the use of fur.

She has also stirred up controversy by stripping down on numerous occasions for the organisation’s ‘I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur’ campaign.

Malibu villa with rock pedigree rolls onto the market

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.
