The sex tape has become a near-obligatory part of any celebrity's career, but the pioneers of the private-sex-tape-goes-public controversy were undoubtedly Pamela Anderson and her now ex-husband, Tommy Lee. Now they're the first famous parents who'll have to explain the whole thing to their kids.
Pamela Anderson recently had the sex-tape talk with her two prepubescent sons (woe to those who have to have that talk in addition to the other, more common "talk" with their kids) -- and it was all because of another controversial film.
According to New York Daily News, Pam's cameo in the 2006 movie Borat is what sparked the conversation with 12-year-old Brandon and 11-year-old Dylan.
"I knew kids were going to watch the film and there was a reference to the tape in the movie and they're that age and, you know, people are going start saying things," Anderson says in an interview airing on British television on Thursday.
"I just said, 'Look, Mummy and Daddy were massively in love, we videotaped everything, everything was videotaped,'" Pam says about her talk with her boys. "'And you're probably going hear about something at school.'"
It seems no subject was off-limits in the interview with British talk-show host, Jeremy Kyle. In it, she comes clean about her cocaine use, her hepatitus C, her money problems and her very recent sobriety.
"I haven't had a drink in a month, I don't drink," she says. "Champagne -- sometimes I'll drink it and I'll get a little crazy, doing back flips and, you know, wrestling people on the floor. But I'm taking a break right now."
As to the financial difficulties that have led to her her having to sell her $5 million Malibu home, Anderson doesn't mince words about the strife it causes her.
"People commit suicide over constructions," Pam says. "Relationships break down over constructions and I can see why. It rips your heart out."
