“I texted Tommy the other day and said, 'How do you feel about everything?' He told me: 'Pamela, don't let it hurt as much as the first time.'”
“I blocked that out of my life to survive, it was actually a coping mechanism, and now it all comes back up, I feel sick to my stomach. This feels like when the video was stolen. Basically, you're just a thing that belongs to the world.

Anderson says she is still tormented by the spread of her intimate video. “It was a really happy time in my life, but I didn't realize that everything was about to change. We had no idea that something in there could hurt us,” she notes.
The first clue was when a copy of the VHS tape was mailed to them. Tommy Lee saw it.
“We were newlyweds, we were naked all the time and we only filmed each other on vacations and stuff. It was just us being dumb. They found all the nudity they could from different tapes and stitched them together,” he explained.

“She didn't know she was going to be completely humiliated. I remember walking into the courtroom and all the lawyers had these naked pictures of me. They said, 'You were in Playboy, you have no right to privacy,'” Anderson recalled that moment.
Pamela Anderson defined a decade. She now she will define herself
“How do they question me about my sexual preferences and my body parts and where I would like to make love when it is stolen property? It made me feel like a horrible woman, that I'm just a piece of meat that this shouldn't mean anything to me because I'm basically a whore,” she says on camera.
She adds that she brought back feelings of shame and helplessness that she had experienced when she was raped.
Anderson withdrew from the court case because she could no longer take the humiliation.
“I know some people would have fought to the death over it, but I was pregnant and didn't want it to affect the baby. Tommy and I had a miscarriage and were afraid it would happen again. We weren't going to put Dylan's life at risk. He completely devastated me, but I just closed my eyes and signed the papers, ”she details.
They did not earn“ a penny ”for the material. “You can't put a monetary number on the amount of pain and suffering you caused.It was different for me than for him. Tommy is a rock star: he adds to the crazy image. But I knew at that moment that my career was over.”
