She's been a centerfold and a Baywatch babe, but those aren't things that Pamela Anderson wants to be known for. She wants to be known for saving the animals instead.
Pamela Anderson Advocate for PETA
According to FOXNews, Pamela Anderson is a big advocate for PETA, and appeared at a gala they held this past weekend in celebration of their 30th anniversary. While there, it became apparent to reporters that Pam had been spending way more time with the animals than with the celebrities, since she had very little idea who some of them were.
For example, when an organizer of the PETA event asked Pamela Anderson to retrace her steps back along the red carpet so she could pose with a picture of "Glee "star Lea Michelle, she had no clue who she was. Even people who don't watch "Glee" would recognize the name, Pamela!
And when someone asked her about Steven Tyler and J-Lo being named the new judges for the upcoming season of "American Idol," she replied saying what a shame it was that the Hoff got voted off so quickly.
Former "DWTS" Contestant and Baywatch Babe Has Her TV Shows Confused
Um, Pam, Hoff was on "Dancing With the Stars," and not "American Idol."
Pamela Anderson is a "Dancing With the Stars" alumnus herself, so it would seem to reason she'd know the difference between that show and "American Idol."
Oh, well. None of it really matters, because as Pamela Anderson said regarding her image in the eyes of her children, it's her work as an animal rights activist that she wants them to associate with their mother.
When my kids go away to school I want them to say my daddy (rocker Tommy Lee) is a rock star and my mommy saves the animals," she said.
And when compared to frivolities like "DWTS" and "Baywatch," that's a pretty noble cause.
