Pamela Anderson is reclaiming her power.
In a new trailer for her upcoming Netflix documentary, Pamela, a Love Story, the Baywatch star reveals she felt “sick” when she was recently forced to relive the trauma of her 1995 sex tape scandal with ex-husband Tommy Lee.
“I blocked that stolen tape out of my life in order to survive, and now that it’s all coming up again, I feel sick,” Anderson, 55, says in the teaser, released today.
“I want to take control of the narrative for the first time.”

While Anderson does not divulge on how she was forced to relive the experience of her stolen sex tape, she is likely referring to the Hulu miniseries Pam and Tommy, released in February 2022.
The miniseries, starring Lily James as Anderson and Sebastian Stan as Lee, became a smash success, introducing a whole new generation of people to the scandal and landing it back in the headlines 26 years later.
Anderson was unwillingly thrust into an unfortunate spotlight when a sex tape she and then-husband Tommy Lee filmed on a houseboat on Lake Mead was stolen by an angry contractor and distributed via the internet in 1995.

At the time of the miniseries’ release, Anderson had vowed to “never watch” it, with sources claiming the actress was traumatised by the controversy being recreated on-screen.
One month later, Netflix announced Anderson had her own documentary in the works.
The streaming platform tweeted at the time, “Pamela Anderson is ready to tell her story in a new documentary.”

“The film, which has been in the making for several years, will feature the pop culture icon setting the record straight as she looks back on her professional path and her personal journey.”
Aside from her high-profile marriage to Tommy Lee, the documentary will delve into the relationships between her and her four other ex-husbands, Anderson will also look back on the ups and downs of her career as well as her recent Broadway debut in Chicago.
Speaking in the documentary teaser, Anderson says, “I didn’t feel like I had a lot of respect” but that she’s also “not the damsel in distress.”
Anderson’s documentary is set to be released January 31.
