Tim Allen and Pamela Anderson have been engaged in a bit of a back-and-forth, after the actress said in her recently released memoir Love, Pamela that comedian flashed his penis at her during their days on Home Improvements. Allen vehemently denied the allegations, responding that he “would never do such a thing.” However, after Anderson doubled down on the claimssources says The Santa Clauses star thinks politics might be playing a role, and rumor has it he’s told people he’s being targeted in Hollywood due to his conservative leanings.
Pamela Anderson played Lisa’s “Tool Time Girl” for two seasons on the ABC sitcom Home Improvementswhich began filming in 1991. Her claims that Tim Allen opened his robe to fully expose himself on the first day of filming allegedly has the actor thinking that people are purportedly trying to get him canceled because of his political beliefs. According to Online Radars:
The insider further alleges that Tim Allen was already worried about the future of his career before the flashing accusations, alleging that he thought politics played into the cancellation of Last Man Standing. Some fans of the actor believe his conservative beliefs also play a part in his being replaced in the Toy Story franchiseswith Chris Evans taking over the role of Buzz Lightyear in last year’s prequel spinoff, lightyear.
There is no real evidence to support those claims — as the film was billed as the story that inspired Tim Allen’s Buzz Lightyear toy — but that didn’t keep Allen from voicing his opinion about the film or his Home Improvements co-star Patricia Heaton from speaking out (twice) in Allen’s defense.
Patricia Heaton has also weighed in on the flashing situation, after a clip resurfaced of the leading man lifting the kilt his character was wearing in front of her during a blooper reel that played during an episode’s end credits. While the two situations are not comparable, Pamela Anderson’s allegations certainly gave a new perspective to the outtake; however, Heaton downplayed the momentsaying she was shocked that he lifted his kilt but that he was wearing boxer shorts.
One person who unequivocally believes the Baywatch alum is Ryan White, the director of her new Netflix documentary Pamela, A Love Story, who claimed not to be surprised that Tim Allen and Sylvester Stallone have denied the allegations made in her book. He said Pamela Anderson was honest “to a fault” and that he’d put his money behind anything he said.
She, in fact, doubled down on the flashing story in interviews promoting Love, Pamela, insisting that she held no ill will toward Tim Allen and was sure he didn’t have bad intentions. However, Pamela Anderson said post-#MeToo, she didn’t think he or anyone would have done that.
the GalaxyQuest star, henceforth, called Pamela Anderson “a good girl,” but tried to discredit her recollection of the events that she alleged to have happened on the set of Home Improvements, saying “everybody at ABC is a little disappointed in her… memory, put it that way.” Only time will tell how this situation progresses in this situation and whether Tim Allen himself makes any comments regarding how his politics play into the matter.
