Pamela Anderson’s upcoming memoir was inspired by ‘devotion to her children’

Published

on

Pamela Anderson is ready to show the world the truest version of herself.

The 55-year-old actor is set to release a memoir on Jan. 31 called “Love, Pamela” detailing Anderson’s rise to fame through storytelling and original poems.

According to the book’s description on publisher HarperCollins’ website, Anderson will explain how she “lost control of her own narrative” as her life was dissected in tabloids and invasive paparazzi photos. 

“Fighting back with a sense of grace, fueled by a love of art and literature, and driven by a devotion to her children and the causes she cares about most, Pamela Anderson has now gone back to the island where she grew up after a memorable run starring as Roxie in ‘Chicago’ on Broadway, reclaiming her free spirit but also standing firm as a strong, creative, confident woman,” the description states.

In an interview with People published on Jan. 15, Anderson credits her sons Brandon, 26, and Dylan, 25, for encouraging her to open up about her past. Anderson shares both children with ex-husband Tommy Lee. 

“(There’s) a little bit of anxiety before it comes out, because this has been a year, basically, of therapy, going through my life from my first memory to my last memory,” she shared with the publication. “I’m really proud of it. It is something I wrote every word of. I didn’t have a collaborator. I didn’t have any ghostwriter, nothing.” 

Anderson said her sons were “excited” for her to write her book.

“They both were like, ‘Mom, you’re going to need help to write this book,’ and I said, ‘No, I can write this book myself,’” Anderson shared. “They were shocked that I pulled this off.”  

Her memoir will hit bookshelves the same day her Netflix documentary, “Pamela, A Love Story,” arrives on Netflix. 

On Jan. 10, the streaming platform dropped a trailer for the film. The memoir and the documentary will be released one year after the premiere of Hulu’s “Pam & Tommy,” which starred Lily James and Sebastian Stan as the former couple. The series focused on the start of their relationship and how the couple’s sex tape was stolen and leaked to the public.

“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. I want to take control of the narrative for the first time,” the “Baywatch” star says in the documentary trailer.

In the video, Anderson’s image is referred to as “public property” as she opens up about not feeling respected in the industry.

But she’s “not the damsel in distress.”

“I put myself in crazy situations and survived them,” she says.

During a recent interview with The New York Times, Anderson spoke about her upcoming releases and confirmed she did not watch “Pam & Tommy.”

She also revealed that she did not read a handwritten letter James had sent her discussing the role and her portrayal. 

“It was already hurtful enough the first time,” Anderson said to The New York Times. “It’s like one of those things where you’re going, ‘Really?’ People are still capitalizing off that thing?”

‘Young and the Restless’ Star Tracey E. Bregman Given Replacement Emmy After Hers Was Lost in a Wildfire

Published

on

Tracey E. Bregman has her Emmy Award back! On a recent episode of The Talk, the 59-year-old The Young and the Restless star was surprised with a replacement Emmy after hers was destroyed during the Woolsey fire in 2018.

Bregman won the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series back in 1985, for her role of Lauren Fenmore on the CBS soap opera. Bregman’s onscreen husband, Christian LeBlanc, surprised her on the talk show when he walked out carrying a black box.

“Are you kidding?” Bregman questioned, as LeBlanc made his way over to her. “Oh my gosh!”

“I would like to present this, an Emmy for Outstanding Ingenue of a Daytime Drama Series, but this time, it’s from the people that love and respect you and cherish you, your CBS, your Young and the Restless family,” he told her. “I am so honored to be able to give you this.”

Bregman seemed stunned by the gesture, stating, “Oh my gosh. I can’t thank you enough. Oh my God. I’m so overwhelmed.”

Afterward, in a statement to Deadline, Bregman thanked the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for making the special moment possible.

“It has been one of the most extraordinary and heartfelt experiences of my career,” she said of receiving a replacement statuette. “I tried not to go into the ugly cry on the air. Thanks to my Young and Restless family, NATAS, The Talk and everyone who made this moment happen. My heart is so full.”

Adam Sharp, the President and CEO of NATAS, was thrilled to facilitate the happy moment.

“We were devastated to learn of the destruction of Tracey’s home, and with it, her well-earned Emmy Award,” he told the outlet. “As our judges acknowledged, the Emmy statuette is a symbol of her hard work and outstanding dedication to her craft. We are happy it’s back home where it belongs.”

Alexander Skarsgård Explained Why The Orgy Scenes In “Infinity Pool” Were “Very Fun” To Film

Infinity Pool: Alexander Skarsgard On Toe Sucking Orgy Scenes

I recently spoke to the beloved actor about his latest R-rated horror movie, which is getting major buzz due to its gore and graphic sex scenes.

ICYMI: Infinity Pool is a sci-fi horror film about a couple (played by Skarsgård and Cleopatra Coleman) who find themselves involved in an underground human cloning operation following an accidental tragedy while on vacation.

Reflecting on the “orgy sequences” in the film, Alex revealed those scenes were “very technical” to shoot. “It’s not quite the same experience watching it as it was shooting it,” he said.

“We talked about it with [director Brandon Cronenberg] and Karim Hussain, who is the cinematographer, about how it was going to be shot, what was going to be the vibe of the scene, and how Brandon envisioned that sequence to show. Once we got into it, it doesn’t sound very fun because it’s like, ‘Oh, just another day at the office.'”

“I love that sequence and the way it ties in the music,” he continued. “It’s so evocative…but it was incredibly technical shooting it because Brandon and Karim work a lot with different lights and different effects that they want to do in-camera.”

Although there was an intimacy coordinator on set, Alex recalled filming being “very fun and very playful.” “[It was] quite endearing to watch Karim and Brandon behind the camera like two little boys playing with Lego, to be so excited about all their gadgets that they were trying out.”

The True Blood actor, who has appeared nude in multiple roles throughout his career and previously said “the crazier [the sex scenes], the better,” agrees that Infinity Pool features the wildest sex scenes he’s ever been a part of — on camera.

“Yeah, I think so,” he said before pausing. “The fact I even have to think about that. … [Laughs] I don’t think I’ve had my toes sucked by another man before, on screen.”

“That wasn’t the craziest thing we did in the movie,” he clarified. “But yeah, it’s some pretty graphic stuff, to say the least. Yeah.”

Welp, there you have it, folks. Check out our full interview with Alex and Mia Goth here. Also, be sure to catch Infinity Pool in theaters now!

Priscilla Presley challenges Lisa Marie trust amendment that names Riley Keough co-trustee

Published

on

Priscilla Presley is asking a judge to declare that a “purported” 2016 amendment to her late daughter’s trust naming Riley Keough as a co-trustee is invalid, according to legal documents obtained by NBC News.

The documents, filed on Jan. 26 in Los Angeles Superior Court, seek confirmation that Priscilla Presley will maintain control of Lisa Marie Presley’s trust in the wake of her death on Jan. 12 at age 54 after experiencing cardiac arrest.

Lisa Marie Presley, the sole heir to her father Elvis Presley, executed a living trust in 1993, a legal mechanism for protecting one’s assets and determining how they will be distributed after they die, according to the American Bar Association. According to the court filing, the trust was “completely restated” on Jan. 27, 2010, and appointed Priscilla Presley and her former business manager, Barry Siegel, as co-trustees.

But after the death of her daughter, Priscilla Presley found a document dated March 11, 2016, “pertaining to be an amendment” to the trust, according to the court document. The “purported” amendment removed both Lisa Marie Presley’s mother and manager as successor co-trustees and replaced them with her daughter Riley Keough and her son, Benjamin Keough.

Benjamin Keough died in 2020 at age 27, leaving Riley Keough, 33, as the only trustee of her mother’s trust, according to the amendment.

In 2018, Lisa Marie Presley had sued her former manager Siegel accusing him of mismanaging her finances, according to Reuters. By 2016, the trust was left with more than $500,000 in credit card debt and $14,000 in cash, per Lisa Marie Presley’s lawsuit. Siegel filed his own suit accusing her of squandering her inheritance.

According to the January filing, “there are many issues surrounding the authenticity and validity of the purported 2016 amendment.” The alleged issues include that the amendment misspells Priscilla Presley’s name, the amendment was never delivered to Priscilla Presley and Lisa Marie Presley’s signature on the amendment “appears inconsistent with her usual and customary signature,” the court document states.

Priscilla Presley’s filing seeks for the 2016 amendment to be declared invalid, meaning she would remains a trustee over her granddaughter.

Lisa Marie Presley’s death was honored on Jan. 22 in a public memorial service on the front lawn of Graceland, the former home of Elvis Presley.

A spokesman for the Memphis, Tennessee, estate previously confirmed to TODAY that Lisa Marie Presley’s three surviving children, Riley Keough and twins Harper and Finley Lockwood, would inherit Graceland.

At the service, Priscilla Presley shared a tribute from one of her granddaughters that said, “mama was my icon, my role model, my superhero, in much more ways than one.”

Riley Keough’s husband, Ben Smith-Petersen, shared a letter that she wrote, thanking her mom for being “the best mother for me.”

Lisa Marie Presley was laid to rest in the Meditation Garden at Graceland next to her son.

On Jan. 27, Priscilla Presley thanked fans on Twitter for their love and support in her grief.

“Every parent who has lost a daughter or son knows what a dark painstaking journey it is,” she wrote.
