Pam Anderson on 'DWTS': 'I'm Putting My Heart Into This'

Pamela Anderson is spending lots of time in the dance studio now that she's prepping to compete on the new season of Dancing With the Stars -- and the mom of two is loving it!

"This is a great time for me to do this," she twittered on Tuesday. "I rehearse while boys are in school…love it.” 

Anderson, 42, told People that her time with ABC's DWTS is keeping her on the straight and narrow and fulfilling her in a variety of ways.

“I’m having the best time,” she said. "This will keep me out of trouble. It’s stimulating mentally, physically and emotionally. It has my focus and I’ve always wanted to learn how to dance. Maybe I’ll get in shape as well.”

The former Baywatch babe, who's paired with ballroom pro (and DWTS newbie) Damian Whitwood, says that she’s been “a little bit shy” about dancing in the past, but is now embracing the opportunity. “This is a leap of faith,” Anderson said. “I’ll learn a life skill. I’m a romantic. I’m putting my heart into this.”
