Pamela Anderson looked somber as she exited her hotel in New York City with son Brandon, 26, while continuing to promote her new tell-all memoir, Love, Pamela, which hit bookstores on Tuesday.
Less than 24 hours after her ex Tommy Lee‘s wife Brittany Furlan quipped that the Baywatch icon ‘wouldn’t care if she died’ in a bizarre TikTok video, the former Playboy Playmate kept her head down and stuck by her eldest’s side as she walked toward her car.
While rocking a long light grey coat over her shoulders, she clutched onto her wrist and and jacket’s lapel as she strutted down the street in a pair of open-toed silver pumps.
The blonde bombshell, who sported a pair of beige slacks, kept her sultry blue eyes concealed under a pair of oversized black shades while her tousled tresses cascaded down her back.
She completed her sophisticated ensemble with a white purse, which featured a silver chain strap, and a soft pink lipstick.
Downcast? Pamela Anderson looked somber as she exited her hotel in New York City with son Brandon, 26, while continuing to promote her new tell-all memoir, Love, Pamela, which hit bookstores on Tuesday
Her sighting comes after her former’s husband’s current wife, 36, posted a video using a ’90s Pam filter’ that emulated Anderson’s bouffant locks and signature eye make-up.
In the video captioned: ‘Pam if I died’ – Furlan mouthes: ‘She passed away? Oh, hmmm, alright.’
She also captioned the snap: ‘Pls guys I gotta make jokes, it’s how I cope’ before the camera panned to Tommy, 60 – but the clip was later deleted.
Furlan’s video seems to be in response to Anderson’s Netflix documentary, in which the mother-of-two said she believed that her presence must ‘annoy’ Lee’s wife.
She said on Instagram in a dignified video: ‘I just wanted to come on here to let you know that I’m OK because I know people have been checking on me, which is really nice, and I’m good,’
‘Don’t worry, and don’t worry about all the people that are saying all the mean things that they’re saying. That’s totally, you know, I don’t live in that world. So, please don’t stress and thank you to all the people that have been so sweet.
‘We are only here for a certain amount of time, so I don’t sweat the comments from people that don’t know me, or my relationship or anything like that.
‘I love everyone that’s been really kind. I’m sending love to those that have been unkind because I think they probably need it and it is what it is. It’s life, I guess.’
‘I’m lucky to have a really loving husband who honestly laughs all the stuff off and could care less but don’t worry about anything, Thank you to everyone that’s been sticking up for me and stuff like that.’

Oh dear: Her sighting comes after her former’s husband’s current wife, 36, posted a video using a ’90s Pam filter’ that emulated Anderson’s bouffant locks and signature eye make-up
‘I leave my comments open if you feel like you wanna get it out and say something mean to me or try to tear me down, go ahead.
‘Honestly I have done so much self work that, you know, I realize where it’s coming from. With that said, I’m sending so much love out there to everyone, the good and the bad, and don’t worry about anything and I’ll be back to my continued program as usual very soon. Love you guys.
This comes after Anderson opened up about her current contact with Lee, in a candid chat on Howard Stern’s SiriusXM show on Wednesday.
She said: ‘Just a text here and there, nothing too crazy, he’s married and happy and she’s good to him and I want to support that.’
Proud mom: Earlier this week, Anderson attended the premiere of her film, Pamela, a love story with sons Brandon Thomas Lee (L) and Dylan Jagger Lee (R)
She added: ‘I hate to be annoying and go through that again and I’m sure she’s annoyed, but respect their relationship and I’m glad he’s happy and has someone in his life.
‘They see each other all the time. This movie is like a love letter to their parents, they know they came from real love and they get to see the real story.
‘The sex tape took its toll on the relationship, it took its toll on my career and people are still capitalizing off that.’
The star also slated acclaimed Hulu series Pam & Tommy, which starred Lily James and Sebastian Stan.
She said: ‘I remember seeing this advert for Pam & Tommy and was like, what? No-one called me, I’m still alive, no-one asked me, it’s nothing to do with me.
‘I felt kinda run over by that one. I don’t think they portrayed Tommy or I very accurately. I haven’t seen it but I’ve heard from people that it’s a very shallow representation of us. I wish they would’ve called.
In her own words: The blonde bombshell’s forthcoming documentary follows her rise to fame, relationships and the sex scandal ‘in her own words,’ according to a Netflix synopsis
‘I don’t think I would have wanted to be involved, especially with that subject matter, why? Why bring it all up again.
The blonde bombshell’s forthcoming documentary follows her rise to fame, relationships and the sex scandal ‘in her own words,’ according to a Netflix synopsis.
According to Entertainment Tonight, Pamela explained in the film that she had ‘nightmares,’ when her sons Brandon, 26, and Dylan, 25, had informed her that a series was being made based on her and ex-husband, Tommy Lee’s, ‘stolen tape.’
The star further admitted, ‘I have no desire to watch it. I never watched the tape, I’m never going to watch this.’
The ‘home videos’ had been stolen from a safe located in Pamela and Tommy’s garage during their marriage, and put together to create the infamous ‘sex tape,’ that caused a media frenzy.
Pamela recently revealed the extent of her ex husband Tommy Lee’s jealousy over her Baywatch co-star David Chokachi in her documentary.
The Barb Wire star has been promoting her new memoir ‘Love, Pamela’ as well as the Pamela: A Love Story’, in which she reportedly shares diary entries that describe Lee’s alleged jealously, as per The Guardian.
‘Tommy was so jealous. I thought that’s what love is. I had to kiss David Chokachi but I didn’t tell Tommy. He lost it. He trashed my trailer on the set, put his fist through a cabinet,’ the beauty reportedly wrote.
Past love: Anderson and Lee famously got married on a beach in Cancun, Mexico after a four day whirlwind courtship. She divorced him in 1998, after he was arrested for spousal abuse and served four months of a six-month jail sentence, but it was later reported the two were trying to reconcile
Anderson — who was married to the Mötley Crüe drummer for three years — went on to state: ‘I apologized for not telling him — lying, as he put it — and told him it wouldn’t happen again.’
She also wrote that the musician — with whom she shares sons Brandon, 26, and Dylan, 25 — crashed his car into the makeup trailer on set which he visited every day, while looking for ‘wife time.’
The superstar famously played CJ Parker on Baywatch from season 3 to season 7 of the show, starting in 1992. Meanwhile Chokachi played lifeguard Cody Madison and one of her romantic interests from 1996 until 1999.
After four years on the hit series, she left to pursue other acting and modelling opportunities. She came back in 2003, along with other cast members, for Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding.
Anderson and Lee famously got married on a beach in Cancun, Mexico after a four day whirlwind courtship. She divorced him in 1998, after he was arrested for spousal abuse and served four months of a six-month jail sentence, but it was later reported the two were trying to reconcile.
She recently described what led to the incident in an interview with People, saying: ‘Tommy ripped Brandon off me and threw me and Dylan into a wall.’ She then called 911 and Lee was arrested.

‘The divorce from Tommy was the hardest, lowest, most difficult point of my life,’ Pamela wrote. ‘I was crushed. I still couldn’t believe that the person I loved the most was capable of what had happened that night. We were both devastated, but I had to protect my babies.’
In a trailer from the Netflix show, Anderson is filmed sifting through a pile of letters which he wrote to her from jail. ‘He really fought for us to stay together. I had to bifurcate the divorce because he wouldn’t sign the papers. But it wasn’t a grey area for me – you can’t do that.’
Despite her tumultuous relationship with Lee the animal rights activist recently revealed that her first husband is the only man she has ever truly been in love with.
