Speaking in her new Netflix documentary, Pamela: A Love Story, the 55-year-old TV personality confessed that she wasn’t thinking about having children when she posed for Playboy and had hoped that if she did, that she could talk to them about it when they were older.
“I wasn’t thinking when I was in Playboy that I was going to have kids soon and they were gonna grow up and it was gonna be embarrassing for them,” Anderson explained.
The mother-of-two continued: “But I always thought I’d tell them, age-appropriate — but I never got the chance — they always found out before I could really talk to them about it... But a tape of your parents having sex is another level.”
Her sons Brandon, 26, and Dylan, 25, also appear in the documentary.
Discussing his shame over the sex tape which inspired the recent Hulu docu-drama Pam and Tommy, Brandson said: “When I was a kid I thought everyone knew things about me and my family that they never should’ve known. Everyone had this dirty little secret about my family.
“I just remember in school if anyone ever brought up my mum I was very quick to fight. I would flush with anger.”
An emotional Anderson recalled: “I remember one day after school, Dylan came to me in tears and he was like, ‘mum why did you do that tape?’ I was like ‘oh gosh really, we didn’t make a sex tape.’”
Dylan then revealed it would have “been a different story if she did cash in on the tape”, explaining: “She 100 per cent cared about her family being OK and me being OK. She didn’t care about the money.”
Brandon went on to add that he “wished” Anderson had made money from the tape, noting: “She’d have made millions of dollars, instead she sat back with nothing and watched her career fizzle.”
