Pam to Kardashians Want Me On Your Show? Lose the Fur!

Pamela Anderson wants no blood on her hands by association … and that’s why she’s telling the Kardashian sisters — if you want me on your show, ditch the fur for good.

Sources close to Pamela tell TMZ … “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” wants to use footage it recently shot of Pamela and Kim in NYC at the posh Vivienne Westwood store.

We’re told a rep from the company that produces the show — Bunim-Murray — sent Pamela’s team a release form to get the all-clear. Pamela and the Kardashians are friends, so it seemed like no big deal. Well, not so fast.

Sources tell us her team responded that Pamela won’t sign UNLESS the Kardashians give up fur. We’re told Pamela and Kim have no beef but if pressed to choose, Pam’s siding with the animals.

It’s not the first time Pamela’s launched a stop-wearing-fur campaign on the family. The former “Baywatch” star recently gifted Kim a faux fur coat to get her on board.

Kim and the Klan love their fur and wear it often, so unclear if Pam will prevail.

We’ve reached out to Bunim-Murray … so far, no word back.

Pamela Anderson calls for Flemish minister to push for a ban on fur farming

Pamela Anderson has penned a letter to a Flemish minister to ask for a push for a ban on fur farming.

The long-standing animal advocate has sent a letter to Ben Weyts, Flemish Minister for Mobility, Public Works, the Vlaamse Rand, Tourism and Animal Welfare, asking for the law to ban fur farming to come into force as soon as possible.

Writing on behalf of PETA and Belgian animal-protection group GAIA, she shared: “As a passionate animal-protection advocate, I was delighted to learn from my friends at PETA and GAIA that you’ve pledged to ban fur farming in the Flemish Region. I’m concerned, however, as it’s now December, and – despite having previously announced that you’d bring forward legislation by the end of the year – still, no law prohibiting this cruel industry has been proposed.

“Every day that such legislation is delayed is a day of misery for the more than 200,000 minks on fur farms in Flanders. These wild animals are kept in cramped wire cages that deny them any opportunity to carry out their natural behavior, such as running and swimming. This confinement causes them such intense psychological distress that many go insane and begin to mutilate themselves. After a lifetime of suffering, confinement, and frustration, they’re killed for a frivolous fashion accessory that no one needs – and increasingly, no one wants.”

In the letter, Pamela called for Weyts to “honor” the commitment he had made and “propose this important piece of legislation without delay”.

She added: “Please, honor your commitment to ban fur factory farming in Flanders and propose this important piece of legislation without delay. In doing so, you’d be joining Austria, Croatia, the Netherlands, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and closer to home, the Brussels-Capital and Walloon regions of Belgium, which have already banned fur farms, recognizing that this barbaric cruelty is unacceptable in a civilized, progressive country.”

Pamela has been a passionate campaigner to ban animal fur, writing letters to the likes of Kim Kardashian West to ask them to swap to faux fur.

Pamela sends Kim Kardashian a faux fur coat for Christmas

Pamela Anderson sent Kim Kardashian a faux fur coat for the holidays, along with a letter imploring the reality star to stop wearing fur.

“As we all ponder New Year’s resolutions, won’t you consider making a meaningful one to stop wearing fur? You’d be setting a trendy, compassionate example,” Anderson wrote in the letter, dated Nov. 28 and sent from France.

The “Baywatch” star, an outspoken animal rights activist and PETA’s honorary director, had the bright coral-hued, hip-length coat custom-designed by Russain manufacturer Only Me Eco Fur, which carries a line by the actress. Similar styles sell for $399-$499.

In her note to Kardashian — who has been photographed numerous times over the years in lavish fur pieces — Anderson cites Gucci’s pledge last month to stop using fur in its designs, following suit behind high-end brands like Giorgio Armani.

“Kim, I know your young fans would admire you and your brand even more if you dropped fur,” Anderson wrote.

She ended the plea on a warm and fuzzy note, writing, “I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday!”

Anderson, 50, has previously lobbied stars, including Kardashian, to go fur-free.

A rep for Kardashian didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
