Pamela Anderson says she reached out to Britney Spears privately after the pop star expressed public support for her.

Anderson’s memoir, With love, Pamelaand the Netflix documentary, Pamela, a love story, were both released last week, allowing the Baywatch alum to tell her story (versus others who tell it for her or steal and sell her image captured on private home videos). Spears took to Instagram and declared herself “such a fan” of the Playboy cover star and praised Anderson’s sons — including Brandon Thomas Lee, who produced the doc — for standing up for their mother.

Anderson, 55, said Entertainment Tonight Canada that when she heard what Spears posted, “I wrote her a letter back. I hope she’s got it by now, just a private letter.”

It hinted at a common bond between her and the singer, who famously fought her father to end his guardianship.

“It’s hard when the people closest to you are cheating on you or using you,” the Barbed wire star said. “You’re like a businessman. It’s painful.”

In Spears’ post over the weekend, which was deleted, she declared herself “such a fan of Pamela Anderson. She was America’s only one time sex icon and still is.” She said Anderson “made me realize that people should be supporting you right where you are at that moment in your life … unless cruelty rules the world.”

Spears was particularly touched by the support Anderson’s children, including Dylan Jagger Lee, showed their mother, including at a screening of the documentary on Jan. 30. Spears is estranged from her two teenage sons, Preston and Jayden Federline. Their father, Kevin Federline, sold an interview discussing that estrangement last year.

“I really respect that her kids stood up for her in regards to people trying to sell her backstory,” Spears wrote.

Anderson’s interview with the media also included a new response to Tim Allen’s denial that he showed her on the set of Home Improvement when she was the “Tool Time” girl in the early 90s.

Anderson related the story, which is in his memoir, saying, “It was the first day of shooting, and I was in my dressing room and I went out, and then he came out of his dressing room and he was wearing this robe, and he goes [gestures opening a robe]. And then he closes it and says: “Now we are even, I saw you naked,” referring to her Playboy centerfolds, “you saw me naked. Now we can start the show.” How could you invent that?”

He added that Allen “ran into his own again [dressing] room” after. He said he looked “embarrassed” afterwards and was “acting like a giddy kid.”

As for Allen’s denial — that it “never happened” and that he “would never do such a thing” — it’s no surprise in the post-#MeToo era.

“He has to deny it because he looks at the times we’re in,” she said. “If he said, ‘Oh yeah, I did it…’ it would be…” (Ryan White, who directed doc, told Yahoo that he wasn’t surprised Allen hadn’t denied it either.)

Anderson added that “a lot of these stories” in his book “are just the tip of the iceberg. I only talked about really pivotal moments to try and convey that some of these things happened, you know, in my childhood, my career. And I kind of wanted to add some of those things. I mean, not all of them. Of course, I haven’t told all the stories of my life, otherwise I would have written volumes.”

Of the importance of telling this story, she noted, “It was because it was my first job” as she passed by Playboy to acting “which I felt was important to say”.

Anderson also said in the interview that, yes, he still has his red Baywatch swimsuit since he played CJ Parker from 1992 to 1997 – and it fits.

“I had a pair back then,” she revealed. “Now I only have one and it fits. I wear it every now and then.”

She said she’s also been known to break out for a party.

“One time I was with my friends, I was out with Luke Gilford, this photographer, and I was at a party with him. I remember them saying, ‘Where’s Pamela?’ I jumped in the shower and came out soaked and mouthed to everyone.”

In his memoir, Anderson wrote about an obsessed fan who once broke into his guest house and lived there for days before getting caught. When she was, the woman—who had bleached her hair blonde—wore Anderson’s Baywatch swimsuit that he apparently stole from the star’s bedroom closet.

Anderson spoke in the documentary about making very little money starring in the series, which was #1 in the world at the time. The blonde bombshell has had money problems throughout her career even though her ex-husband of 10 days has promised to leave her $10 million in her will. While the stolen sex tape of hers with husband Tommy Lee was the most downloaded of her time, they rejected a $5 million payday, saying it wasn’t for sale. They never took advantage of it, they both said.

Anderson also claimed while promoting the book that while negotiating a cameo in 2017 Baywatch film, starring Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron, was “bullied” by producers who tried to convince her to do it for free. A Paramount spokesman did not comment on the statement, reported in Variety.
