Actor Tim Allen is denying claims that exposed himself to Pamela Anderson on the set of “Home Improvement” in 1991. Anderson, who would have been 23 at the time, was regular guest star in the show as Lisa the Tool Girl and appeared in 23 episodes. She now claims in her upcoming book “Love, Pamela,” that Allen flashed her while wearing a robe in the hallway of the set. According to Variety, she writes in her book, “On the first day of filming, I walked out of my dressing room, and Tim was in the hallway in his robe. He opened his robe and flashed me quickly — completely naked underneath.” “He said it was only fair, because he had seen me naked. Now we’re even. I laughed uncomfortably. “It was the first of many bizarre encounters where people felt they knew me enough to make absolute fools out of themselves,”” she adds.
Tim Allen would have been 37 years old at the time of the allegation but a representative for the actor told Fox Digital, “No, it never happened. I would never do such a thing.” Anderson left “Home Improvement” in 1992 to star in her most iconic role as C.J. Parker in “Baywatch”. “Home Improvement” was the long-standing number one TV series in the United States during the 90s.
According to Entertainment Weekly:
Home Improvement followed the family life of home improvement show host Tim “the Tool Man” Taylor (Allen). Anderson appeared as Lisa for the first two seasons, though she eventually left to focus on Baywatch.
“Here you go, Tim, was my only line every episode, and when they decided to expand my part, it was, Here you go, Tim. Have a nice day,” she writes in her memoir. “It was the most popular show in North America.”
Between Love, Pamela and her forthcoming Netflix documentary, Pamela, a love story (both out Jan. 31), Anderson is opening up in a big way about her highs and lows in the spotlight.
