Chuck Zito calls HULU series a Bad Idea

Pamela Anderson’s sex tape scandal with ex-hubby Tommy Lee is getting resurrected for the small screen … something another ex of hers, Chuck Zito, is calling … no bueno.

We ran into the actor and celeb boxing trainer — who dated PA back in the 2000s — and just had to ask about this new Hulu miniseries that’s in the works … in which Lily James and Sebastian Stan are portraying Pam and Tommy during their early years as a married couple.

More specifically, the series will focus on the period of their marriage when their infamous sex tape was stolen and peddled on the black market … something they say they never saw a penny for, at first.

According to Chuck … Hulu’s probably doing wrong by Pam in revisiting a chapter that’s more than 20 years old by now, and suggests making an entire show around those events is in bad taste — especially if the couple themselves haven’t signed off (which they haven’t).

He makes the point that the whole saga is ancient history — adding Pam probably doesn’t care very much about it … even joking that she seems more interested in rings these days. Oof …

Of course, some of her closest friends are taking a stronger stance … including Courtney Love, who claims the show is making Pam relive the trauma she went through … going on to say the tape “destroyed” Pam’s life, and calling the show exploitative and disgusting.

Regardless of where people land on this issue, one thing everyone seems to agree with is … Lily James is a dead ringer for the one and only. As for Seb … eh, not so much.

Courtney Love has some things to say about Hulu’s upcoming Pam & Tommy miniseries.

The four-time Grammy Award nominee, 56, defended her friend Pamela Anderson on Facebook Friday, posting a photo of an article about the limited series, which is set to cover the Baywatch star’s whirlwind romance with Tommy Lee and their infamous sex tape. “I find this so f—ing outrageous,” Love began in her post.

“When Pam / Tommy sex tape was out / myself @pattyschemel @xmadmx were making a record,” Love continued. “And the lone women in many recording studios in LA. Where all / ALL! The staff engineers / producers / owners / were watching the sex tape with huge schadenfraude.. Guffaws, It was disgusting. I banned anyone discussing it.. It destroyed my friend Pamelas life. Utterly.”

Anderson, 53, and Lee, 58, have yet to personally comment on the show.

A rep for Hulu did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Also in her post, Love claimed that the upcoming series asked to use her likeness. “Last week I was asked to approve using a Rolling Stone cover of mine / shot by Mark Seliger in this piece of s—,” Love wrote. “That they had approved. I said ‘f— no.’ shocked. Gentleman don’t approve this sort of thing.”

Love concluded her post by calling out Lily James, who will portray Anderson. “My heart goes out to Pammy ♥️♥️ further causing her complex trauma. And shame on Lily James whoever the f— she is. #vile,” Love wrote.

Reps for Anderson and James did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Pam & Tommy recently began filming with James and costar Sebastian Stan playing the titular couple. The series recounts their four-day romance leading up to their wedding on a Mexican beach in 1995, as well as the making and subsequent scandal of their sex tape.

The former couple sued the distributor of their sex tape, Internet Entertainment Group, before reaching a confidential settlement. The tape was still released publicly.

“I’ve never seen it. I made not one dollar. It was stolen property. We made a deal to stop all the shenanigans,” Anderson said on Watch What Happens Live in 2015.

“I was seven months pregnant with Dylan and thinking it was affecting the pregnancy with the stress and said, ‘I’m not going to court anymore. I’m not being deposed anymore by these horny, weird lawyer men. I don’t want to talk about my vagina anymore or my public sex — anything,’ ” Anderson said at the time.

Anderson and Lee divorced in 1998, and they share sons Brandon, 24, and Dylan, 23.

Pamela Anderson SLAMS biopic Pam And Tommy

Pamela Anderson has reportedly branded upcoming Hulu show Pam And Tommy, about her romance with Tommy Lee, ‘a joke and cheap knock-off’.

The show hit headlines last week when first look images showed Lily James, 32, and Sebastian Stan, 38, bear an uncanny likeness to the iconic couple, however it seems the model, 53, is less than impressed at the forthcoming show.

Insiders told The Sun that the star deems the ‘God awful’ programme ‘a joke’ and has never heard of Lily or Sebastian, who have already been praised for their transformation – although seemingly without Pamela’s seal of approval.

Pam And Tommy is based on the model’s three-year marriage to rock star Tommy – which saw them tie the knot in 1995 and take part in their notorious sex tape.

The source said: ‘One of the iconic star’s friends told The Sun: ‘Pamela has no intention of watching this God awful show, absolutely not. Never…

She’s never heard of the actors playing her or Tommy, and doesn’t care to know them. She and her family think the show is a cheap knock-off.’

The insider then added: ‘The whole thing is a joke to them.’

MailOnline has contacted representative for Pamela for comment.

Lily and Sebastian showed off their incredible resemblances to the former couple on Friday as they appeared to mimic the famous 2005 photo of Pamela, 53, tugging on Tommy’s, 58, nipple ring with her teeth.

While a different snap saw Lily in an all-black leather outfit that highlighted her cleavage in a black leather vest as she transformed into the blonde bombshell.

The raunchy photos were shared on the Twitter page for the Pam And Tommy series on Friday.

They tweeted: ‘Here’s a peek at Pam & Tommy, coming to @hulu . Based on the true scandal that started it all, featuring Lily James, Sebastian Stan and @sethrogen … ready to rewind? #PamAndTommy.’

In the raunchy black-and-white photo, Sebastian went shirtless with drawn on inkings, he also wore a pair of high-waisted jeans, chain belt and a padlock necklace.

The actor sported a similar shaggy hairdo and soul patch to the Mötley Crüe drummer. Lily wore a racy plaid top and showed off a Barb Wire tattoo on her arm, while also wearing her blond wig styled up.
