Pamela Anderson revealed that Tim Allen, the star of the hit 90's sitcom Home Improvement, had flashed her on her first day on the set. Yesterday, Allen denied the claim, but today a video appears to show Allen flashing another co-star. However, there are multiple reasons why the video might not be exactly what people are aware of.
Anderson writes in her new memoir Love, Pamela that "On the first day of filming, Tim came out of my dressing room," and he flashed me quickly, completely naked underneath. He said it was only fair, because he had seen me naked."
Anderson's claim that Allen said he saw her naked is likely to be a reference to her appearing naked for Playboy prior to her appointment at Home Improvement.
Newsweek wrote an update on the incident yesterday, and Tim Allen replied, "No, it never happened." I would never do such a thing.
Some fans accused Anderson of lying after Tim Allen's denial, while others came to her defense.
Pamela Anderson replied to Vanity Fair saying, "This true story is just one of many bizarre and difficult situations I learned to navigate. I have no ill will toward Tim but, like the other, it should have never happened."
Tim Allen pokes his co-star Patricia Richardson on the set today, and the video shows what's underneath the Tool Man's kilt, according to TMZ. "I'm surprised that he lifted the kilt, not by a guy in boxer shorts."
The incident was also recorded in front of the audience, who laughed along, and Allen would unlikely flash the whole audience without the incident becoming a news item until that time, which was a couple decades ago.
After Richardson seemed to be off the script by praising the kilt by saying, "I just wish it was shorter," Allen responds by laughing hysterically with the audience, and that's when he lifts his kilt completely up.
Allen would most likely not be filming a kilt in front of an audience with nothing else on underneath. Richardson's assurances that he was well-dressed underneath the kilt will likely not stop many people from claiming this proves Pamela Anderson's accusation. Of course, it does. However, it does not disprove her claim.
Unless another shot resurfaces, it can be almost assured that it will be her word against his, which, because it wasn't made while filming, is highly unlikely.
