Pamela Anderson: Tim Allen says ABC/Disney is disappointed by her claim
“Everybody loved him, but everybody at ABC was a little disappointed in his memory, so to speak,” Allen said.
Tim Allen is calling on ABC and The Walt Disney Company to support his defense against Pamela Anderson’s #MeToo claim.
In her memoir, “Love, Pamela,” Anderson claimed that Allen “flashed” her while filming “Home Improvement” in 1991. Anderson was 23 at the time and Allen was 37.
“On the first day of shooting, I walked out of my dressing room and Tim was in the hallway in his robe,” Anderson wrote. He opened his robe and flashed me a quick flash – completely naked underneath. He said it was only fair because he saw me naked. “We are equal now.” I laughed unpleasantly.”
Allen appears to have been referring to Anderson’s nude modeling for Playboy before joining the sitcom. Allen denied the allegation, tells Variety, “No, it never happened. I would never do that.”
Now, Allen is addressing Anderson’s claim further.
“He was a great colleague, I’ll tell you that. She’s a fun girl,” Allen said The Daily Mail UK. “Everyone loved him, but everyone at the ABC was a bit disappointed in his memory, so to speak. All of us at Disney/ABC, actually.”
Allen currently stars in “The Santa Clauses” on Disney+.
“Baywatch” alum Anderson previously said in a statement Vanity Fair that he has “no malice towards Tim” after the decades since they allegedly met. “But like the others, this should not have happened,” Anderson said. “This true story is just one of many surreal and uncomfortable situations I’ve learned to navigate. My book shows how it made me feel in my life and in this case my career.”
Anderson added in her book that she decided to leave “Home Improvement” because of her “quality of life.”
The former Playboy model also recently opened up about Paramount Pictures pressuring her to make an unpaid cameo in the 2017 film “Baywatch” and revealed what she really thought about Hulu’s limited series, “Pam & Tommy”, based on the infamous sex tape with Anderson. and her then-husband, Tommy Lee.
“He still owes me a public apology,” Anderson said of the people behind the Emmy-nominated series, calling them “assholes” and calling the show “salt on the wound.”
