A native of Canada, Lee was born on Vancouver Island, and
later moved to the city of Vancouver. It was while she attended
a British Columbia Lions football game that Lee was "discovered"
in a most unusual way. Dressed in a Labatt's Beer T-shirt, her image
was transmitted on the stadium's wide screen. The fans cheered the
beautiful girl, and she was brought down to the 50-yard line and
introduced to the appreciative crowd. As a result, she was signed
to a commercial contract with Labatt's and became the company's
"Blue Zone" girl. The campaign was so popular that other
commercials and advertising assignments for Lee soon followed. Due
to the recognition from these commercials she was soon approached
to do her first cover for Playboy magazine.
Pamela has since gone on to grace the cover an astounding five
times, more than any other woman in the magazine's history. With
the success and recognition she garnered from Playboy, Lee soon
moved to Los Angeles where she spent two seasons in the top-ten
ABC Television hit series "Home Improvement" as Lisa,
the Tool Time Girl. It was on "Home Improvement" that
she captured the attention and affection of viewing audiences nationwide.
At the same time, Lee was cast as 'C.J. Parker' on the internationally
successful series "Baywatch, " but because of the impossible
schedule of working on two hit shows, she eventually left "Home
Improvement" and remained full-time on "Baywatch."
She now stars on one of the most phenomenally popular television
programs of all time, which is seen in 140 countries worldwide.
Recently, Lee made the transition into the feature film arena, starring
in Dark Horse Entertainment's action comedy "Barb Wire."
Distributed by Gramercy Films, "Barb Wire" was released
in the spring of 1996. In addition, Lee was featured in the CBS
movie-of-the-week, "Deader Than Ever, " a hip and updated
Mike Hammer mystery, co-starring Rob Estes. She recently co-starred
in the television movie "The Evolution of Mr. E., " adapted
from the H.G. Wells short story, where she portrayed a quirky sculptor/artist.
Pamela is was wed to Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee, and the couple
had two children. However, the couple divorced in early 1998.
"Making love in the morning got me through morning sickness.
I found I could be happy and throw up at the same time."
"What I know in life runs the gamut of the "feminist
experience." The true meaning of feminism is this: to use your
strong womanly image to gain strong results in society."
"I don't recommend surgery at all. Women's bodies are beautiful
as they are, and I've had a love/hate relationship with my breasts
my whole life." quoted by the New York Post
"I don't really think about anything too much. I live in the
present. I move on. I don't think about what happened yesterday.
If I think too much, it kind of freaks me out.."
"I have this phobia: I don't like mirrors. And I don't watch
myself on television. If anything comes on, I make them shut it
off, or I leave the room."
"I'm a mother with two small children, so I don't take as
much crap as I used to."
"It is great to be a blonde. With low expectations it's very
easy to surprise people."
"It was terrible. We had it stored with all of our personal
things in a refrigerator-sized safe that was behind a carpeted wall,
behind all of Tommy's recording equipment. Tommy's gun collection
was in there, and because of the advice of the construction workers
who built it, all our personal things. We went down there to get
some family photos, and it was gone. The whole safe. And the pictures
turned up on the Internet and in Penthouse."
"It's going to take a certain man for me to ever get involved
with, because he'll have to realize I don't have two children, I
have three. Tommy is always going to always be a part of my life."
"My ideal relaxation is working on upholstry. I spend hours
in junk shops buying furniture. I do all the upholstery work myself,
and it's like therapy."
"Tattoos are like stories - they're symbolic of the important
moments in your life. Sitting down, talking about where you got
each tattoo and what it symbolizes, is really beautiful."
"There's never going to be a great misunderstanding of me.
I think I'm a little whacked."
"There's no way I set out to be a certain kind of symbol -
the way I dress is the way I am, the way I live my life."
