In her new memoir, shared with Variety ahead of its release, Pamela Anderson claims a disturbing incident she believes 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 and Allen was 37. He denies the allegation.
“On the first day of shooting I left my dressing room and Tim was standing in the hallway in his robe,” she wrote. “He opened his robe and quickly revealed me – completely naked underneath. He said it was only fair because he saw me naked. Now we are the same. I laughed uncomfortably.”
The excerpt does not mention how or when Allen may have seen Anderson naked.
Anderson has posed for Playboy several times throughout her career, with her first appearance in 1989, a few years before she claims the incident took place.
Allen denied the incident in a statement to CNN.
“No, it never happened,” he said in the statement. “I would never do such a thing.”
CNN has reached out to Anderson officials for comment.
Anderson played Lisa the Tool Girl on Home Improvement, a hit series for ABC. 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 is set to premiere on Netflix on January 31, the same day her memoir is set to be released.
