Pamela Anderson has been a bit all over the place when it comes to her marriage to Rick Salomon. They’ve been married a few times, they split up again last summer before getting back together a few months later and now they’re ACTUALLY divorcing again (I think?). Also, things have been kicked up a notch because Pam has been forced to seek a restraining order against Rick because he’s an abusive asshole and she’s afraid for her well-being.
The temporary order, filed Friday, will hold until the court hearing scheduled for April 3, according to court documents obtained by PEOPLE.
In the docs, Anderson, 47, alleges that Salomon’s pattern of abuse had become so severe that she was “scared of what he is capable of doing to me.”
Since Anderson filed for divorce from Salomon in February, she alleges in the documents that his behavior “has become erratic, out of control and has caused me to fear for my safety.”
Anderson recounted an occasion in late January when he allegedly put a pillow over her face while they were having sex in an attempt to smother her. The documents also claim that when Salomon is “upset,” he calls her “cruel names” such as “slut,” “ugly old b––” and “crack whore.”
In the weeks leading up to their divorce, Anderson received a number of harassing e-mails and text messages from her soon-to-be-ex, she claims. Salomon would also allegedly send Anderson photos of his then-wife that he had taken of her nude and without her consent, “demonstrating that he has the power to send it to anyone if I did not do what he wants,” she claims.
Sigh. What is WRONG with people in this world? I feel like I’m hearing SO many stories lately (as in, more than usual) about violent men (and women!) who seemingly get off on hurting other people. Hopefully she’s able to retain this protection order for as long as she feels it’s necessary (and hopefully he actually abides by it).
Pamela Anderson took some time off from writing divorce poetry to give a statement about why she’s not in support of the ice bucket challenge. Hint: it has to do with animal testing. See, Ms. Pam Anderson is a big fan of animals, and is very dead-set against any kind of harm done to them in any way. Here’s what she had to say, hot off of Facebook:
I can’t bring myself to do your Ice bucket challenge.
I enjoy a good dare- It’s always good to bring awareness – in fun, creative ways / I don’t want to take away from that.
but it had me thinking. Digging a bit deeper. I found that we may not be aligned – in our messages. So…
- I thought Instead / I’d challenge ALS to stop Animal testing /– Recent experiments funded by the ALS Association, mice had holes drilled into their skulls, were inflicted with crippling illnesses, and were forced to run on an inclined treadmill until they collapsed from exhaustion. Monkeys had chemicals injected into their brains and backs and were later killed and dissected.
What is the result of these experiments (other than a lot of suffering)? In the past decade, only about a dozen experimental ALS treatments have moved on to human trials after being shown to alleviate the disease in animals. All but one of these treatments failed in humans—and the one that “passed” offers only marginal benefits to humans who suffer from ALS. This massive failure rate is typical for animal experiments, because even though animals feel pain and suffer like we do, their bodies often react completely differently to drugs and diseases. According to the FDA, 92 out of every 100 drugs that pass animal trials fail during the human clinical trial phase.
Sophisticated non-animal testing methods—including in vitro methods, advanced computer-modeling techniques, and studies with human volunteers, among others—have given us everything from the best life-saving HIV drugs to cloned human skin for burn victims. Trying to cure human diseases by relying on outdated and ineffective animal experiments isn’t only cruel—it’s a grave disservice to people who desperately need cures.
Please, help scientists make real progress toward treating and curing human diseases by visiting HumaneSeal.org to find and support charities that never harm animals and which pour their time and resources into advanced, promising, human-relevant cures.
She included this photo:
Um, okay, not sure why you needed to be soaking wet and headless to make your point, but there it is.
What do you think about her stance on this issue? Does she have a fair point or is she being a big spoil sport?
Pamela Anderson was all verklempt earlier this week over her latest split from husband from Rick Salomon, to the point that she was writing awful Facebook divorce poetry. From the sounds of her creative writing, Rick stuck his dick in some other lady – perhaps several other ladies – and she was done with that. But is it all water under the bridge just a few days later? The above photo sorta seems like it…
That’s right – as recently as Wednesday, someone snapped the above pic of them smooching in broad daylight out in Malibu. Whatever’s happening there, I almost don’t even want to know, but I guess whatever makes these people happy…
Can someone take the internet away from most celebrities? Like, especially after big life events like break-ups/divorce? Pamela Anderson announced this week that she was divorcing husband Rick Salomon (again), and that realization has got her creative juices flowing, I suppose, because now she’s writing terrible divorce poetry and posting it on Facebook.
This is a long one, so I’ll just give you a taste here and then you can read the full thing behind the cut.
I know it’s bad for you…
But, this is when I wish,
I had a cigarette-
something I’ve never tried- (light up)
some kind of relief..
I wish it was Italy 40 years ago–
The moon rising over the Amphitheater–
to tremendous applause… like Herzog (clap)
Europeans don’t seem to care about silly
We do what we want anyway -
behind closed doors–
Our true character, collective complexities.
childish activities -
patterns- genetics? Attention deficit-
- …SEX … a lost art– a sickness–
Lost sensuality -
The cruel smell of orange blossoms…
I love being in love– but expectations,
make it impossible to be happy-
I’ve tried… so hard..
maybe it’s not in fashion–
Tradition…just seemed so romantic…,
I guess it’s a used up ideal –
for the old fashion…
Female security… lost-
Coded, and loaded Cell phones,
Ordering sex on line-
is like ordering a book on Amazon–
and … snooping eats you alive–
Oh dear. So basically he was cheating… again. I mean, do people never learn? Anyhow, let’s let Pamela continue with her poetic flow. It’s SO LONG!
Raise your hand if you’re surprised about this one: Pamela Anderson and Rick Salomon‘s marriage is O-V-E-R. No one? Didn’t think so. Pam filed for divorce (for the second time) earlier this month after only six months of marriage. Why? Eh, yknow.
Anderson cites “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for ending her marriage to Salomon, according to papers filed by her lawyer July 3.
“We ask the media to please respect Pamela and her family’s privacy during this time,” Anderson’s rep says in a statement to PEOPLE.
Well, that lasted a long time. Then again, Rick is known for being an absolute asshole, so the fact that they ever got back together in the first place was a bit of a shock.
Anyway, good on you for getting away if you were unhappy, Pam. Keep rockin’ that pixie cut and doing you.
Pamela Anderson has been sporting a pixie cut for a while now, having cut off her long locks to shed the “life” that her old style had taken on. Well, apparently she’s ready to relive old times, as she’s put in some extensions that are… insane.
Here’s what I don’t understand – when you’re rich, don’t you pay people to help you avoid situations like this? It’s not the long hair that’s the problem, it’s the fact that it looks like something Amy Winehouse threw on her head after a heroin overdose. It doesn’t even look like it’s put on properly, and I’m thoroughly confused.
I hate even saying all of this, because I really do think Pam is great… It’s just that hair that’s not.
Pamela Anderson is putting a brave foot forward by opening up about her history of sexual abuse. Her childhood sounds awful — she was continuously abused starting at the age of 6. She credits her abuse with her love of animals and charity work. From The Daily Mail via MTV News:
“I feel now might be the time to reveal a few of my most painful memories,” the actress told an audience at a backgammon competition beach party the Foundation, according to the Daily Mail. “At the risk of over-exposing myself, again, or being inappropriate, again, I thought I might share with you why I am doing this.”
At age 6, Ms. Anderson was molested by her female babysitter. At age 12, a friend’s “older brother decided to teach me backgammon, which led into a back massage, which led into rape – my first heterosexual experience.” He was 25. Then years later, her first boyfriend arranged a gang rape.
She says this is why she trusts animals more than humans:
This meant I had a hard time trusting humans. My parents tried to keep me safe, but to me, the world was not a safe place. My dad was an alcoholic, my mom worked two jobs, my mom was always crying, dad didn’t always come home.
I prayed to the whales with my feet in the ocean, my only real friends until I had children.
My loyalty was with the animal kingdom and I vowed to protect them and only them.
God, that’s so awful. I had no idea about any of this. Good for her for coming forward, because by doing so, she could help so many more people in a similar situation.
