Pamela Anderson is awesome. I couldn’t run a marathon at 29, but she’s 46 and still killed the 26.2 mile New York City Marathon last Sunday in less than six hours. Even better, she raised $76,000 for Sean Penn’s J/P Haitian Relief Organization by doing so, which is a pretty nice chunk of change for the charity.
Of course, the run takes its toll on anyone who participates, and she hit up Twitter after the race to share a photo of her post-race state: in bed, icing her knee and hip with a TV remote control and a book. Missing from that picture is the giant pizza I would be eating if I were her, lolz:
Well done to Pamela (and everyone else) for completing the race. I’m tired just looking at the photos!
It’s been a while since we’ve had a best and worst celebrity looks of the week, so here we go. This is from the last week of October. I chose Kelly Osbourne for best celebrity dressing up as another celebrity. That’s her above as Christina Hendricks. Pretty dead-on.
I promise not to overdo it on the Halloween costumes.
Pamela Anderson, girl, what is going on here. You were invited to the Cosmoprof Convention in Vegas, which is a cosmetology convention that “normal” people can’t just show up for. You have to be invited. Which is still not really impressing me much, it’s on par with the things you’ve been shilling for lately, but okay, I guess if you’re really into make-up, this is where you want to be.
So what the hell is this make-up job? Are you okay? You’re looking a little Jenna Jameson — the later years, and that’s not a great thing. Are you just tired? But really though, skinny arched eyebrows and frosted eyeshadow? Come onnnnnnn.
People are always hating on Pamela Anderson. She’s just trying to squeeze the last of the money out of her knockers and suddenly people have to go and get all politically correct on her. Sheesh.
Pam’s in a new ad for some web hosting company called Crazy Domains (???) in which she’s part of the fantasies of a bunch of men in a boardroom. Pretty standard shit on everyday TV, if you ask me. But the Advertising Standards Agency received four complaints about it and shut that shit down. God, if only the world at large worked like that.
Here’s the statement they released after banning it from airing again:
“The ASA understood that the ad was intended as a parody of a mundane business meeting and was intended to be humorous and light-hearted.
“[However], we considered that they were also portrayed sexually throughout the ad, not just during the fantasy sequence.
“We noted that even though they were wearing business attire, their shirts were buttoned down so that they were exposing their bras and cleavages.
“We considered the ad was likely to cause serious offense to some viewers on the basis that it was sexist and degrading to women.”
Well, okay. I can think of about 50 things off the top of my head that are far more degrading to women, but a Pamela Anderson commercial that I’ve never seen before or even heard of seems like a good place to start addressing the patriarchy, sure, why not.
