Kid Rock’s ex-wife Baywatch star Pamela Anderson has a lot to reveal in her upcoming documentary, Pamela, a Love Story, dropping the first episode on Netflix on January 31. Anderson doesn’t hold back in her memoir “Love, Pamela,” as she wrote about her violent childhood and her tumultuous marriage to Mötley Crüe rocker and sex-tape partner Tommy Lee.

The Canadian-born actress also revealrf that things got so bad that she once downed vodka and a bottle of pills and let herself into a bathtub full of water — an act that could have cost Anderson her life.
In 1995, Anderson was pulling double-duty, filming “Baywatch” and the movie “Barb Wire.” She was also newly married to Lee, who she wed after knowing for only four days. The ceremony took place on a beach in Cancun, Mexico, with Anderson clad in a white bikini.
“It was a challenging time,” she writes. “I hardly slept, I was working constantly between the movie and Baywatch, and I was freshly married. It felt like I needed to be ‘on’ 24/7, and yet I could barely stay awake.”
Then a friend introduced her to diet pills named ephedrine.
“I liked how the pills kept me awake, and I could get a lot more done,” Anderson reveals in the book. “But the side effects meant I was losing weight fast. I looked like a bowlegged skeleton in a bathing suit, 105 pounds at five foot seven. In some of the ‘Baywatch’ episodes filmed during that time, even the tiniest waves would knock me over.”
