In her new memoir shared with Variety before publication, Pamela Anderson alleges a disturbing incident she says happened on the set of “Home Improvement” with her former costar Tim Allen.
According to Variety, which received an excerpt from Anderson’s forthcoming memoir “Love, Pamela,” the actress writes that Allen showed her his penis while working on the show in 1991, when she was 23 years old and Allen 37. He denies the accusation.
“On the first day of shooting, I walked out of my dressing room and Tim was standing in the hallway in his dressing gown,” she wrote. “He opened his robe and quickly flashed me – completely naked underneath. He said it was only fair, because he had seen me naked. Now we’re even. I laughed awkwardly.”
The clip does not mention how or when Allen saw Anderson naked.
Anderson posed for Playboy several times during her career, with her first appearance in 1989, a few years before she claimed the incident happened.
Allen denied the incident in a statement to CNN.
“No, that never happened,” he said in the statement. “I would never do such a thing.”
CNN has reached out to Anderson representatives for comment.
Anderson played Lisa the Tool Girl on “Home Improvement,” a hit ABC series. Allen played Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor.
She left after two seasons for her role as lifeguard Casey Jean “CJ” Parker on “Baywatch”.
Anderson is also the subject of “Pamela, A Love Story” which premieres on Netflix on Jan. 31, the same day her memoir is published.
