Fans Are Threatening To Boycott “Pam & Tommy”

Hulu’s Pam & Tommy biopic is under intense criticism from fans, who are accusing the show’s creators of “profiting off” women’s trauma in the name of entertainment.

The miniseries, which premieres on Feb. 2, is set to retell the story of history’s first-ever viral video: Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee’s infamous sex tape.

Lily James and Sebastian Stan will portray Pamela and Tommy as the show revisits the couple’s whirlwind romance, first documenting their wedding before the nonconsensual distribution of their sex tape, which was stolen from a locked safe in their home by an electrician who had been working on their property in 1995.

However, while the show entirely hinges on the exploitation of Pam and Tommy, it appears that neither were involved in the creation of the project.

Brand-new reports allege that Pam & Tommy was greenlit without Pamela’s approval and maintain that she “had no involvement whatsoever” in the show’s production.

Ahead of the biopic’s highly anticipated premiere, a source close to Pamela told Entertainment Tonight that she is finding the retelling of her trauma incredibly “painful.”

“The upcoming Pam & Tommy Hulu series has been very painful for Pamela Anderson and for anyone that loves her,” the source said. “It is shocking that this series is allowed to happen without her approval.”

The insider went on to say that Pamela still feels “violated” by the burglary that led to the tape being stolen and added that the rollout of the new show is uprooting a lot of painful memories.

“Pamela has no regrets about her life, but the only thing she would probably erase is this burglary,” the source said. “She feels so violated to this day. It brings back a very painful time for her.”

Pamela Anderson ‘Won’t Be Watching’ Hulu’s ‘Pam & Tommy’

Changing the channel! Pamela Anderson “won’t be watching” Hulu’s Pam & Tommy — despite the series being about her and ex-husband Tommy Lee, a source exclusively tells Us Weekly.

“She had no involvement whatsoever” in the making of the show, the insider says.

The series stars Lily James as Anderson, 54, and Sebastian Stan as Lee, 59, and will follow the exes’ whirlwind relationship, including when they tied the knot in 1995 after knowing each other for 96 hours. It will also feature the story behind the Baywatch alum and the Mötley Crüe musician’s leaked sex tape.

Earlier this month, James, 32, revealed that she tried to reach out to Anderson to speak with her about the show and get her support — but she didn’t have any luck.

“I was really hopeful that she would be involved. I wish it had been different,” the Downton Abbey alum told Net-a-Porter’s Porter on January 10. “My sole intention was to take care of the story and to play Pamela authentically.”

The Cinderella actress claimed she continued to try and contact the former Playboy model “right up until we started filming,” noting that she’s “never worked so hard” on a project. “I read the books [Anderson] has written, I read her poetry, I can parrot along to all her interviews,” James added.

Anderson, for her part, has been busy with her own commitments, including renovating her Vancouver Island, Canada, estate for an upcoming HGTV Canada series.

The Barb Wire star recently faced personal turmoil, splitting from Dan Hayhurst. Anderson’s rep confirmed to Us on Friday, January 21, that the model is getting divorced after one year of marriage.

The Canada native is the one who ended the relationship, a source exclusively tells Us. “There was no final straw,” the insider says, explaining that the pair “simply fell out of love.”

In the wake of the split, Anderson is “doing just fine,” choosing to spend time in Malibu with her sons, Brandon, 25, and Dylan, 24, whom she shares with Lee. (The pair were married from 1995 to 1998.)

“Wherever they are is where she feels most at home,” the source adds.

Us previously reported that Anderson and Hayhurst were “taking time apart” one year after they secretly tied the knot at her home on Vancouver Island on Christmas Eve in 2020. A source told Us on Thursday, January 20, that the Scary Movie 3 actress “saw the marriage as a fresh start, but the spark has faded.”

Fans, however, will get a glimpse at her relationship with Hayhurst pre-split when her HGTV show airs as he was her costar and “will be featured” on the series, the insider tells Us.

Following her marriage to Lee, Anderson briefly romanced Kid Rock, splitting in 2006 after one year of marriage. She moved on with Rick Saloman, whom she had an on-off relationship with from 2007 to 2015.

Anderson started dating Jon Peters in late 2019 and secretly wed in January 2020. However, the pair never obtained a marriage license and parted ways less than two weeks later.

Pam & Tommy premieres on Hulu Wednesday, February 2.

Pamela Married Dan Hayhurst For ‘Wrong Reasons’

Pamela Anderson is divorcing from her bodyguard husband Dan Hayhurst of a little more than a year and now, a source close to the actress is revealing her feelings about the split. “Pamela got married to Dan for the wrong reasons. She was in lust, not love. And because they were in the middle of a pandemic, he really helped to get her through that dark time,” a source EXCLUSIVELY revealed to HollywoodLife.

“They quarantined together and it was beautiful. The emotions were so raw and he was exactly what Pamela needed at the time. But right before the holidays, Pamela realized that this wasn’t working for either one of them,” the insider shared. “First off, she did not like living in Canada. She is a California girl through and through and not being close to her sons really got to her. It is over and the divorce is going through but there is no bad blood. You won’t hear either one of them talking bad about the other one. It just didn’t work anymore.”

An additional source close to the family told us that Pam’s sons Brandon and Dylan are “extremely supportive of their mom no matter what” and that they’re “glad she’s back in LA” to spend more quality time together. “Brandon and Dylan trust that their mom knows what’s best for her and that she makes the best decisions for herself,” the insider spilled. “They’re proud that she is able to know what she wants in someone and would never settle for less. They know their mom thought this marriage would last forever, so they’re disappointed for her that it didn’t work out but they love their mom and whatever makes her happy makes them happy.”

Pamela got married in a private, intimate ceremony over the 2020 holidays to Dan. The pair began dating in Sept. 2020 seven months after Pam’s split from movie mogul Jon Peters. They were living at Pamela’s Vancouver island home but now the Baywatch actress is moved back to Malibu and has taken off her ring. This will be her 5th divorce.
