Pam Anderson adds paid channel to social-media site

Pamela Anderson has become the latest star to sell a subscription that allows fans a glimpse into her private life.

The “Baywatch” icon is adding her own paid channel to the social-media platform Jasmin, we’re told. An insider says it’s a big deal for her, “especially for those who know how much she values her privacy.” She’s already Jasmin’s creative director.

Other celebs, including Cardi B and Bella Thorne, have recently signed up to be creators on the more risqué subscription platform OnlyFans.

Pam’s Monday Morning

Even discussing the most prosaic parts of her life—her wake-up time, what she eats for breakfast—Pamela Anderson paints pictures with her words. She describes the colors of the sunrise and the stacks of small, produce-filled glass containers in her fridge in a way that makes you feel almost like you’re at her scenic six-acre compound in Vancouver Island, British Columbia, where she’s quarantining with only her dogs for company. It’s fitting then that Anderson, 53, who first came to national attention for her TV acting roles in Baywatch and Home Improvement, was discovered for one of her latest jobs in part because of the poetry archive on her website, after the company Jasmin’s CEO and co-founder Karoly Papp found it and read her poems. “They thought I really had something to say,” Anderson, who is also known for being an activist, film producer and author, explains. Jasmin, the new, tamer offshoot of LiveJasmin—a mostly X-rated site where viewers can watch live streams of models—hired Anderson as creative director in May. Jasmin allows celebrities like Anderson, as well as influencers and sexologists, to talk to and create non-explicit content for their viewers and fans. On a weekly basis, Anderson chats with her subscribers about what’s on her mind and sometimes answers the many questions they have for her. Anderson thinks that in addition to enduring the coronavirus pandemic, our world is suffering from an “epidemic of loneliness” right now, and she wants to help. “There are limitations when it comes to technology, but…instead of romanticizing the past, we need to make it more about now and the future, which involves technology,” she says. Here, she speaks to WSJ. about her love of solitude, not working out during quarantine (or ever) and the importance of reading and writing.

What time do you get up on Mondays, and what’s the first thing you do?
Every day to me is like a Monday. Everything’s a little bit blurry in this business. If I’m shooting a film or a photo shoot or depending on how late the night is…I have no set schedule. So if I get to sleep before midnight on a Sunday, I’m definitely up at 5 a.m. with the dogs, watching the sunrise, feeding them and hanging out with them, having some quiet time on my own.
So you’re not one of those people who need eight hours of sleep a night?
No, no. I mean, sometimes I like to sleep all day. It depends on the day and where I am, if it’s raining. Where I am, there’s a lot of rain, and it’s nice to be curled up in bed and reading a book all day. I’m lucky I get that luxury. I don’t have a strict schedule. But I am an early riser. I live on the water, and the sunrise is different every single day where I am. The blues and the purples and the pinks, it’s just magical.
What do you eat for breakfast to start the week off right?
I drink way too much coffee, way too much cappuccino, I have my almond milk cappuccinos. I have my little Nespresso machines, I have a little kind of compound—different buildings. And I have a different machine in each building, so I have different kinds of coffees wherever I go. That’s about it to start the day, and then I pick at fruit. I’ve always been one of those food prep girls where I get lots of fresh fruit, lots of fresh vegetables, and then I cut them all up and put them in little glass containers and I stack them all in my fridge. My fridge is always beautiful.

Do you set an intention for the week?
It depends on what I’m doing. I always think of my properties as my art projects, so I always want to make sure that I’ve done something to improve my surroundings, the surroundings of my family. I’m always planting flowers and gardening. I always want to make sure that I’ve done something creative, something good for the environment, something positive each week. That’s my intention. And to make sure that I’m continually writing and reading and not ever getting away from that, because when I’m not reading, I’m just not happy.

Do you have any recent favorite books?
I read a lot of Anaïs Nin, I read a lot of poetry. I go through all my crazy stuff, my Joseph Campbell, my He, She and We by Robert A. Johnson, Individuation in Fairy Tales by Marie-Louise von Franz. I have Carl Jung books I read over and over and over again. I’ve always been interested in psychology. I love Naomi Klein and she’s a friend of mine; I [was a co-executive producer] on a film with her called This Changes Everything.
Is gardening a longtime hobby?
I’m on my place in Vancouver Island now. I have six acres on the water and lots of places to garden. I canopied a lot of trees, and I’m putting in a vegetable garden and a greenhouse. I keep on dreaming up new things to do. But my mom is an amazing gardener and an amazing canner. She has that green thumb, and she also wants me to have a beautiful rose garden. I have an obsession with Yves Piaget roses, and I’ve already ordered 75 that are coming in December.

What else do you do on Mondays?
I’m always trying to think over the weekend about what’s going on in my head, what have I watched on the news, what are people talking about, and then try to talk about that a bit when I do my Jasmin postings and talks. It’s hard because on Jasmin there’s so many questions that go flying by on the screen, so I just ramble on my own sometimes about whatever’s on my mind. A typical Monday would be kind of just preparing and thinking about what I want to talk about and then getting on Jasmin. The last couple of times I’ve just been holding my cellphone and running around my property giving little tours and talking about whatever’s going on in the world. I do have pretty strong opinions about a lot of things. I feel like I’m talking to my kids sometimes, because we’ve had the most incredible conversations [on FaceTime] over the last few days. It’s really great when you know that your children have empathy and are engaged in the world. The romantic struggle, I like to call it.

Are you doing any documentary work right now?
There’s a couple in the works. David LaChapelle wants to do a film so we’ve been brainstorming. He knows what he wants to do but we’ve been talking about different ideas. I’ve actually partially written a book called Saving Feminism From Feminists. I’ve always had a lot going on. I have such great friends who are such great accomplices in my life when it comes to things I care about.

Have you shifted your routines during this stay-at-home period?
Not much, no. I came to the island—this is my sanctuary. I love solitude. I get a lot more done when I’m alone, except I wish I could see my parents more, my kids more. I have a few friends that I get to see. But I prefer just being with my dogs. I love my children as much as my dogs, but that’s about it.

What’s your exercise routine like?
I have a gym but I don’t use it. I keep looking at it. I need to use it, that’s one of the things I need to do. I’ve never worked out. I’ve never been a workout person, but I do love to dance. In my head, I’m a great dancer. I do ballet. I wish I was a dancer when I was younger. I have a ballet barre, I have my Technogym, my treadmill. I have all these different pieces and I just look at it and I haven’t used it yet.

What about your beauty routine?
If you could see me now. I have on this long, vintage slip that’s tattered and a big flannel shirt over it, and I’m running around barefoot in the rain. If you saw me right now, you’d think, She has no beauty regimen. This is not beauty, this is madness. I don’t fall for all that stuff. I’m not a big product person. I love getting facials. I love getting massages. I love all that. But if someone told me what I had to do first, second, third, I’m just not going to do it. I fall asleep in my makeup, I have mascara all over my pillow. That’s how it is.

What’s one piece of advice you’ve gotten that’s guided you over the years?
Just that we can paint our own picture of our lives, and to not fear doing something different. My grandfather was very influential in my life. He always told me, You’re a brand-new life put on this planet to do whatever you want; you’re not an extension of your parents or the small town you grew up in. You have just as much opportunity as anyone else. He was Finnish, so he spoke Finnish when I was young. That really made a lasting impression on me—not that I can do whatever I want, because I think you have to work hard if you want to be successful at anything. But I like to work hard, I like the challenge. I love interesting people, I love eccentric people. My grandfather and father were super intelligent, they were big influences on me, [as well as] my mother, who’s the funniest person I know.

Pam reveals what happened to her Baywatch Bathing Suit

image host

When “Baywatch” fans think of the popular TV series from the ’90s, chances are flashbacks of Pamela Anderson strutting on the beach in her iconic high-cut red swimsuit immediately come to mind.

Her role as C.J. Parker contributed to Anderson becoming a household name, and in an exclusive interview with Fox News, the 52-year-old actress and model revealed she not only still owns the memorable number, but in fact, still fits in it, too.

“Oh, I have one right here in my top drawer! It still fits,” Anderson said.

“I have worn it on occasion just to be funny with my friends,” she continued, adding that she’s been known to hop out of her pool or shower with the skin-tight number on “to try to give them mouth to mouth!”

“Mostly,” though, Anderson said, she can be spotted at home in the one-piece “just around the living room.”

Anderson appeared on the popular TV series for a total of five seasons from 1992-1997. She later appeared in the 2003 film spinoff titled “Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding.”

While she is known as an international sex symbol, Anderson said she can relate to her fans who often question her for advice about sex positivity and confidence. She says her key to allowing herself to be vulnerable in a sexy outfit or posing for a glamorous picture is as simple as just “being you.”

“I was painfully, painfully shy but you probably won’t believe it,” Anderson shared. “But I got over it. I really hated that feeling. I realized that nobody cares as much about what you’re wearing or what you look like other than you. Nobody cares as much as you do. You’re your own worst critic. You always feel good if you just do it, just do something you really want to do. Afterward, you’re so glad you did that. I always say paint your own picture and what you want your life to look like and who you want to be because society tells us we have to be a certain way and we really don’t have to be. There’s really no rules.”

Anderson has plenty more advice to share. With impressive modeling and acting careers already under her belt, Anderson dished to Fox News about her new role as the Creative Director at Jasmin, a new webcamming site whose slogan is “Real people. Real connections.” The website allows Anderson to connect with strangers around the world who are seeking advice about romance, sex positivity and relationships. From her home on Vancouver Island, Anderson said the role is allowing her to flex some of her creative muscles in a way she hasn’t before.

“50 million people a day go to this site so I thought it was a great opportunity to talk about anything people feel passionate about from activism, to health and beauty and romance and dating and just anything you can think of,” Anderson said of the new platform. “They’re definitely pioneers and paving new ground and we’ll see where it goes. It’s fun.”

She’s kicking off her new role by working at home in quarantine like so many others during the coronavirus pandemic. While she’s not afraid to have her own fashion show for fun, Anderson shared what she often wears most of the time when she’s at home alone.

“My whole wardrobe is basically silks, slips and sweaters,” she said. “So I’m in pajamas all the time!”
