Pamela Anderson sets the record straight in a new autobiography and documentary

Pamela Anderson wants to set the record straight.

The 55-year-old actress, who refused to watch the Pam and Tommy series or read a note written by actress Lily James meant to reassure her about the series, is releasing her memoirs and a Netflix documentary telling her side of things January 31.

In an interview with People, the former Baywatch star said her sons, Brandon, 26, and Dylan, 25, whom she shares with ex-husband Tommy Lee, 60, encouraged her to come forward.

Having her say: Pamela Anderson, 55, is telling her side of things in a new memoir and documentary. Both are being released in January 31 (Pictured in Marbella, Spain in May 2017)

‘It’s just one girl’s story of how I made it through: a small-town girl going to Los Angeles and just going through all the wild and crazy adventures I did and then circling back and going home.’

The City Hunter actress, who has released two prior autobiographies and four novels, is proud of her work and asserts she wrote Love, Pamela without the help of a ghostwriter.

She equates the process of compiling the book to ‘therapy, going through my life from my first memory to my last memory.’
