The Pamela Anderson You Didn’t Know

There’s a certain image of Pamela Anderson that’s stuck in the minds of viewers around the world, since her ‘Baywatch’ days. In the course of a chat with her during her visit to India for Colors’ ‘Bigg Boss’, Campaign India discovered the other side of Anderson’s personality: she carries around Neruda’s poetry, for one.

The Pamela Anderson You Didn’t Know

What do you think about reality TV? Is there any kind of television show you wouldn’t do?

I’m not a fan of reality television but I’ve done a couple of shows now, and I think the days of scripted television are pretty much over (though I hope they’ll come back). People watch these kind of shows now, and they like the human relationships. With ‘Dancing with the Stars’, I love to dance and I never knew I could and it was the one of the things I could do to overcome that. What a great opportunity, to have a professional dancer be with me every day, and by the end of it, I probably knew one dance. I just came back from Tel Aviv where we went to open their ‘Dancing with the Stars’ show (not to compete).  ‘Dancing with the Stars’ is in some 30 countries and ‘Big Brother’ is in 52 countries, and I thought this is such a great opportunity to come to India. I learnt a little bit of the culture, how to cook, how to speak a little Hindi, and some Bollywood dance, and got to meet people and talk about politics, relationships etc. [In the future] I’m not going to be eating bugs or anything, I’m vegetarian and too much of a girl to push myself like that.
