Pamela Anderson gained national attention when she landed on the cover of Playboy in October 1989. Soon she began dating former "Happy Days" idol Scott Baio, who in 1990 asked her to guest-star in his syndicated show, "Charles in Charge." The following year, the model-turned-actress appeared in "Home Improvement
" as Lisa, the original "Tool Time" girl. But Anderson's star didn't soar until she assumed her next role as scantily-clad lifeguard C.J. Parker on "Baywatch," a show that would make Anderson a household name. At the height of her fame in the mid-'90s, she married Motley Crue rocker Tommy Lee and starred in the box office bomb "Barb Wire," but those missteps didn't stop casting agents from knocking down her door. In 1998, Anderson kicked off a successful, four-year run as the lead of her very own action series, "V.I.P." During this time, she became engaged and unengaged to model Marcus Schenkenberg and married and divorced musician Kid Rock. Since then, she has released a best-seller, voiced the lead character in the cartoon "Stripperella," starred in the failed Fox sitcom "Stacked," and allowed a documentary crew to capture her every move for E!'s "Pam: Girl on the Loose." More recently, Anderson partnered with Damian Whitewood on Season 10 of "Dancing With the Stars." These days she's busy raising her two teenage sons, Brandon and Dylan, making promotional appearances, and advocating for animal rights.
